Nonsense! The wolfhound is a sighthound. The Shar Pei looks more suspicious to me. Just look at those eyes...

Asked if she thought it was intentional, she said: "I don't think we'll ever know."


No, you stupid farkwad.  You would know exactly for sure what happened if you spent the money to get a necropsy/toxicology screen.

That was my first thought. And yes you can insure a dog, and a top tier show dog would be insured for quite a tidy sum, probably.
 
2013-03-01 03:39:02 PM  
It boggles my mind she didn't get an autopsy.  She isn't a licensed professional and nobody is going to take her word for it.  If she is so sure the dog was poisoned, then get the autopsy so that it is definitively proven.  Then you have hard evidence to back up your claims.

Hmm...the refusal to have an autopsy...the asinine accusation aimed at animal rights groups...something stinks here.

The 137th Westminster drew 2,721 purebred entries. Cruz, one of 33 Samoyeds list in the show, did not win any ribbons in the best of breed judging.

That sounds like a failure to me.  Perhaps the dog took its own life.  Sleeping pills and alcohol.

If it is indeed poison, that's a whole new level beyond "mustache-twirlingly evil". Someone must be taking these competitions way too serious.

Elementary, my dear dachshund, after taking paws to reflect on it all, the owner's murder of her own show dog is the only reasonable conclusion.

That's sad, but it could have been something else like renal failure. I've lost two cats to renal failure, one had eaten rat poison but with the other one, there was no specific cause. It was one of those things that just happens. If it was me, I would've had the necropsy done to know for sure.

Also, gonna call bullshiat on PETA's statement, but that's a given.

But PETA co-founder and president Ingrid Newkirk said "it makes no sense whatsoever" that an animal rights activist would harm an animal.
"It's a fantasy, it's a fallacy," she told the AP by phone Thursday night. "How dare you point a finger and cast aspersions when you haven't a clue."

Wow, dogs running into the street and getting hit by cars is a very reasonable decision.

I work for the AKC and you wouldn't believe the kind of money the top dogs are worth. Some of them have five different owners. Six and seven figure dogs are not uncommon.  They're like racehorses, that can produce young by the litter. Puppies from highly-awarded biatch/sire combinations are worth 5-figures.

A virile male can impregnate several dozen biatches a year and command thousands of dollars each time.

Yup.  It was at that point in the article where she lost my sympathy and it makes me wonder about her involvement.  Who wouldn't get an autopsy on an expensive show dog that you think was poisoned at a major show?

That "don't point a finger" quote sounds mighty testy for someone who's spent their lives trolling the fark out of the rest of the world.

"She said that while there was no evidence foul play was involved, certain symptoms were consistent with dogs that ingest rat or mouse poison. That was the reason she said she decided against a necropsy"

Horsehiate.  The reason to not do a necropsy would be if the cause of death were obvious - decapitation, crushed torso, rapid loss of blood, etc.  A few signs of poisoning, as determined by a person who's credentials end and begin at being able to get dogs to fark and being able to cut a dog's hair?  That is PRECISELY the BEST reason to do a necropsy.  Not the other way around.

You madam are a moron.  I had a necropsy done on my dead 8' Rosy Tail Boa.  Just to see if there was an illness or something else.   It was cardiac arrest thankyouverymuch.

Madam, YOU should not be responsible for handling dogs or children.  Had you allowed one done then you could have cast aspersions.  Until such time I suggest you shut your trap.
