South Side Kennels, NY/Animal Cruelty..Weimeraners, GSP's, Vizslas, Ridgebacks

We Received this email from a friend of ours who tryin to help these poor defenseless dogs.
Wed hope somone out there will be able to adopt these some of these wonderful dogs AND Puppies.
Please Call the number in BLUE if you can help in any way!!!
There is the original letter below and the 2 corresponding emails below that.

SOUTH SIDE KENNELS IN NY SHUT DOWN - Investigation of Animal Cruelty - Can you or someone you know help with donations or placement of these rescued dogs? Please spread the word.
Additional Photos from the link.

I'm trying to mobilize the rescue organizations for the different breeds mention below. Can you help?
We have a terrible, heartbreaking situation in Upstate
New York with Frank Popolizio�s Southside Kennels located in South Worcester, NY. The Otsego County SPCA has been called in, as well as NY State Troopers, to remove over 130 dogs that are staked out w/barrels for shelter and no bedding in the barrels in subzero weather. The dogs are emaciated, eating their own feces, and in horrible physical condition and unable to fend for themselves. There are vizslas, GSP�s, Weimaraners, and Rhodesian Ridgebacks in peril that I know of. There may be other breeds at this puppy mill as well.
Please help me get the word out to the neighboring rescue people. The Otsego County SPCA is overwhelmed with the number of dogs they are going to have to take in and they have asked for help. The director, and contact person for this SPCA is a lady by the name of Liz Mackey; her phone number is 607-547-8111. This is a Cooperstown, NY number and the SPCA is located just south of Cooperstown
Thank you for any help you can lend in this sad situation.

At this point in time I am still awaiting more information from the Vizsla Club of LI�s Rescue Chair as to what we or anyone can possibly do at this point to help these poor dogs. The news of this horrific finding has been circulating since this morning, and the breed rescue groups and lots of others are actively involved.
I know of the kennel, and it is well known to be a glorified puppy mill, a lot of dogs come into rescue from this kennel, but I personally have never heard of the dogs being mistreated there. Obviously something has gone very wrong up there. He also breeds miniature horses.
Once I hear more I will let everyone know.
Debbie Field,
your Treasurer & VCLI Rescue Committee Member

Dear Friends:This e-mail was forwarded to me from Karen Miller, our dog trainer and sitter. There has been a horrific rescuing of Weims, Vizsla's, German Short Haired Pointers and Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Please read the email that was sent to me. I have since been in contact with the director of the SPCA in Cooperstown, Liz Mackey and the situation is unphathomable. This truely breaks my heart for all the dogs but especially hits home with the weims and the puppies that have been rescued. Of course they're in need of donations, which Tom & I have pledged, as well as fostering homes until they are able to be adopted. I actually know of this man and his kennel and justice will hopefully be served. Its a very intense investigation with the State Police. So if there is anything you can do, to help those precious animals, it would be greatly appreciated. The SPCA is completely overwhelmed by the case with all the dogs and the expense. Each and every dog must have a physical, be tested and all shots administered and the animals are in dire need of everything. Some of them are in very grave health.
Thanks for taking the time.
Janine & Tom

Our Girl Penny Enjoying Dessert...:-)

Here is our Girl Penny at our Dinner Table eating a McFlurry for Dessert.
Notice she is taking up 3 chairs and is being spoon feed!!!
She also eats from a fork….we kind of taught her that.
You may have noticed the steak strips on the oval plate.
That is Freshly made, right out of the dehydrator; our “To Shea” Chewy Beef Treats.
She ate a half plate of those first…she was good girl.
As I am typing this she is now fast asleep on our (her ) Couch.

What should I feed my future dog?

Here is an article on what this person should feed their dog....Kibble or Raw.Most people would go with kibble and thats fine with me....Not Our Girl Penny...LOL.
Penny HAS to have what WE HAVE for dinner...She even sits at the table with us.
She will not touch any of our plates or open pans of food...Just the one that is given to her....Very Polite!
She will also wait until we are finished before she asks for dessert (a big milkbone or ice cream).
Then when she is done, we tuck her in with a blanket on her special bed in the kitchen and falls fast asleep.

Dogs Saying Grace Before Meals


On one of the facebook dog groups that we belong to there is a discussion about whether or not dogs have souls and/or go to heaven.

Most people in this group have responded with an overwhelming "YES", they believe they will someday be reunited; some have said that they have even seen spirits of their beloved pets who have already passed. I am going to share this video with them - I know most of them are going to love this.

Dog Cloning: Surrogate Mom to Dog Meat?

Here is a article on Cloning Dogs, Which by the way I think is wrong, but the story is interesting.

I believe cloning is wrong. God had not intended animalas to be exactly the same.
Another point is that even if you clone your favorite pet, he or she would not be the same. The animal would experience different things at different times and would be treated different from the original. Therefore the animal would act different from the original too.
Cloning is just not the right thing for us to fool, around with. We should leave that to Mother Nature and God.

More Bad Treats from China -Dogs getting Sick and Dying!

Here are 2 (two) stories on Bad Chicken Treats from China!!!!
Our country is STILL selling this crap and many dogs are STILL getting Sick and Dying.

1) Owner Sounds Alarm on Risky Dog Treats

2) FDA warns pet owners over dog treats - Houston woman's puppy dies after eating treats

I know this sounds like an advertisement, but if more people would
buy OUR Treats from "To Shea", They would not have gotten sick and or died.
It make me sick to my stomach knowing that the chinese people are poisoning our dogs and they DO NOT CARE. Its ALL about Money to them. They even poisoned their own babies with tainted baby milk. I cvan go on and on about how horrible they are.
PLEASE ONLY buy American Made Products!!!
For my Canadian and Austrailian Friends....Do not buy ANY Pet food from China!!!
