I read so much anger and hate in this forum that I just don't understand. Now it's my turn. It takes a lot to make me mad, but tonight I could use a lot of words that a lady of my age shouldn't use. I can also understand wanting to cause another person to suffer excruciating pain.

Last night I read on Rome Humane Society's facebook page about a dog named Lainy that was rescued from a house in Camden. You really should go to that page and see her picture. There's also a picture on the Sentinel website. It'll tear your heart out. She was tied to a lawn chair, was starved from 45 to 15 pounds, and was surviving soley on rocks and grass. The starvation made her so weak that she couldn’t even withstand her own body weight. She also suffered from a serious eye ailment and her teeth were rotted.(Two puppies have also been seized)

Tonight I read that she had died on the way to the emergency vet.

So far they're not giving out the name of this @#@&#$hole. Is he being protected when he wouldn't protect this poor little dog? Well, at least Lainy isn't suffering anymore, and doesn't have to worry about where her next meal is coming from.

Tonight, set out an extra bowl of food for your dog (or cat) in memory of Lainy. And give them a big hug to let them know you love them.

Tie that man to a lawn chair and feed him rocks and grass!! He left that dog defenseless!! If you won't take care of your pets then give them away or take them to a shelter. Putting them through that sort of torture is cruel and heartless.

Who is the owner?
Name the scumbag owner

If somebody reading this knows who the "owner" is, please name that person right now. Too many people cover up for these criminals, like the lazy incompetent judges and scumbag lawyers, for example. No God to be found when defenseless animals (or people) need saving. We've got to do it.

Name that worthless bastard. It's the LEAST we can do for Lainey.

Lainy was not tied to a lawnchair. Her 2 puppies. were. I got it wrong. She had been found in a cage at the end of a driveway on Babcock Road in Camden.
The veterinarian's report shows Lainey had a fever, unkept hair and she was covered with dirt and hay. Lainey also suffered from tape worms.

From the Humane Society: "He didn't feed her for months. He didn't water her for months,That's not
just something you see from a day or two. This isn't just a week or two this is months of
walking past this dog.He would get out of his truck every day and walk past Lainey to get into his home knowing that this dog was starving. Crying, Lainey eating stones and grass to
try to survive. He was very aware of what was going on with her."

"Even though she was starving and so weak, every time she saw you she would light up, she would pick her head up and try to wag her tail."

From Kim Strong one of the volunteers: "When I look at that dog, I see the horrors that she
went through and the first thing she did when I met her was lick my hand. When I put her in
my arms to carry her out of that vet, she rested her head on my shoulder. So a dog that had
absolutely no reason in the world to trust human beings..trusted my shoulder and just melted
into my arms. And when I sat her in her crate here into a warm bed and all these fluffy
blankets that Josh had set up for her..she just rested for the first time."

One of the media sources said the owner was a 22 year old guy who said it wasn't his dog. Said it was his exe's.
And where was God

.... and where was God while that poor baby was dying? And we humans are supposed to give a damn about right and wrong, when God don't?

Just the same, that 22-year-old dog owner needs some karma, with interest.

Kim Strong is an attention grabbing b!tch!! No way she or the Humane Society should have been in possession of this dog. Around the clock care should have been done by trained emergency care physicians, not Kim Strong, Sarah and her brother and husband.

My problem is that I know the HSR is using this to try to turn around their very tarnished image and using this poor dog to try to do that. Everyone bitches about Kim Strong and we all know she's an attention grabber. Lets not even get into the family affair. Im sure Sarah's brother Josh crapped his pants when he saw Lainey.

And you are using a poor dead dog to do what exactly? Make sure the image stays tarnished?

I don't see *everyone* bitching about Kim Strong or snarking about some family affair. Truthfully, I don't care.

I'd rather see energy directed to making sure Ian West & his live-in GF are prosecuted to the fullest extent and to petion for and support the passage of "Lainey's Law" .

Child services needs to look into this immediately (someone mentioned they have children), it has been statistically proven that people who abuse/neglect animals will do it to children too. Based on the absolute cruelty of this case, any children should be removed immediately.

All I know is that Sarah has put dogs down for less. Lainey should have been put down peacefully. Of course this guy is a monster. But what the HSR did is just as bad.
