On my way to court this morning, I received a call from the ADA and she said the man who allegedly tossed the pup over the fence at CAAWS in August 2012 pleaded guilty to the charges today. He did this as part of a package deal in order to be released from custody after being arrested for an unrelated event. Either way we got it, we got the win.
I am happy. CAAWS is happy. And we are done with this one. I am sure there will be something again at some time in the future. Right now though, I am not required to be in court for anything in the foreseeable future! Yea! I am relieved.
When I got home, I encountered definite evidence of another major crime. There was a call for the application of the death penalty threatened upon the head of a beloved pet. It is only because of my great patience and
benevolent personality that the culprit escaped the electric chair.
I felt sorry for the idiot since he lost privileges of having a crate pad. It was chilly today so I threw a quilt over his crate, trying to make sure none of the quilt touched the crate. I carefully arranged it so it would block any draft but not be where he would get it.
It was one of my early quilts, a lot of HSTs in a dark/light pattern. I kinda liked it. It is well used, well worn, snuggly and soft.
Obviously I was wrong. So he has lost ALL fabric privileges for the foreseeable future. You cannot feel sorry for him anymore, he will use it to his own detriment. He will eat your stuff, sure as looking at you.
With those big, wistful brown eyes................sigh.
