Out of curiousity, did she win best in show or in what category? I cannot believe the condition of those dogs. While she is living fine her animals are suffering. I wonder what kind of fines she'll be given.

I have few of her dogs from 5 yrs. ago beautiful but when they arrived from the airport there hip bones were showing.She said they would be groomed.There coat what they had left was scissor cut .you could tell she cut out many mats.Could tell they had not been socialized with.Took me several mo. working wtih them to get them looking health and start socialzing with me. Sad this lady I have talked to several times on phone talked to threw e-mails.Very stuck up person .Put me down to other on my dogs. But I have been inspected by USDA had great report.I also have small hobby/show kennel because of her show rep.she said she could make it to where would never want to show my dogs.I am shocked she did this to her dogs.And have the nerve to try to hurt others.So glad she was caught and pray she is never aloud to own a dog again.These dogs gave her so much.MONEY !! What did they want from her just food and care. She makes me Sick

I just became aware of this story as I live on the east coast however I have one of the dogs that was born in this horrible place over 5 years ago. His Dad was still there apparently living in a horrible situation. I am so glad that a very nice breeder in Miss purchased my precious four legged person and then gave him to me 3 years ago when my Mom died. I cried when I saw this and I still cry for the life those precious dogs lived. I am glad to know that they will live out the rest of their lives in good homes. God Bless all the people who stepped in.

I have adopted one of the rescued dogs; she's a beautiful little girl and it just breaks my heart that anyone could treat the animals the way that she did. I don't care what her problem is, she should NEVER be allowed to have any animals.

My new addition is welcomed, loved and cherished. She's got issues on food agression and potty training, but she's been a quick study; knowing the words to sit, and night night. I think that she will soon over come this issues.

I just saw the episode on Animal Planet about the rescue of the cocker spaniels from Rosenberg. Was Sidney/Sydney in Rosenberg? Other posts have referred to Betty M. as the owner of this "kennel of horror" but on the t.v. episode, it referred to a "he" as the owner of the dogs. Any idea how we can find out for sure who owned these mistreated dogs?

yeah this woman is my grandma and im very ashamed to be related to her. i reported her to the spca she found out and now im dead to her which is fine to me. she never should have got the kennel if she wasnt prepared to take care of the dogs. she is very cruel. she had intentions of freezing the dogs to death in a deep freezer. she thought it would be "humane". she got landed with a $11,000 fine for boarding the dogs at the spca, then another $17,000 fine for something else. idk what it was for but i do know that she is trying to weasel her way out of getting animal cruelty charges. she is a cold hearted bitch and im proud she is out of my life. i can say that im EXTREMELY proud of myself for having the courage to report her cuz i and the spca saved those dogs from a ruthless woman. if anyone knows if any of the dos are still up for adoption plz let me know. i would love nothin more than to have one and show them the love they never had. heres my email if antone knows anything

All of the cockers awarded ownership to the Houston SPCA have been adopted. Some were adopted through HSPCA and others through Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas.

The owner of the dogs is a woman. However, under Texas law both the husband and wife are considered the owners for legal matters since the property is co-owned. Therefore both will face criminal charges, though it was the wife who was the breeder and owner. The she had at Westminster Kennel Club in 2009 was as the co-breeder and co-owner of the parti cocker Best of Variety winner. This dog was not among the dogs seized as he was with his co-owner, who assumed full ownership after the show. However, his dam was among the dogs seized. She was identified by her microchip number, which her co-owner knew. The woman refused to do anything with regards to identifying the dogs. A few were identified through their show win pictures. There is a facebook page "Justice for the Rosenberg 32" that has pictures and information on our attempts to get criminal charges filed. Morgan, thank you for saving the dogs. What the Animal Cops Houston show never mentioned was that many birds in horrible condition were also seized. The $17,000 .)fine is probably with regards to the care the HSPCA gave the birds.(I only attended the hearing on ownership of the dogs. I did not return the following morning for the hearing on the birds.)

Good for you Morgan! You have a heart and a concience to have been able to stand up and do this for the dogs and you are better off to not be associated with such a heartless person..blood or no blood. I wish you the very best life has to offer. You need a much deserved pat on the back and a HUGE hug for your bravery to help those that were so helpless. God bless you!

I purchased a beautiful little all-black female Cocker Spaniel from her four years ago. Her name is Guinevere but goes by Girly Sue. She is the healthiest dog I have ever had, and according to Betty the monstrous bitch, her sire was Eights Eights Black Jag and the mother was Zoe. I will be at Betty McClendon's trial in January of 2011. She will see my face, and I will tell her she is the most vile piece of shit that can walk on this planet. If I could spit on her without being arrested...I would.

This lowlife should serve her jail time in one of her kennels.

How can we find out when and where her trial will be held? She needs to be dealt the most severe punishment. Maybe the Fort Bend Herald will finally run a story about her when she goes to trial. The Herald failed to report anything when the dogs were seized by the SPCA.

The arraignment is set for jan. 27,2011 if you would like to be there. I have adopted one of these poor babies and I have a file of paperwork on him showing the eye, ear, skin and health probles that I had to battle with this little boy. I will do my best to try to get this in the evidence file for her trial, if need be than I will take my baby to the trial for the judge and jury to see what he looks like now with the photos/videos of him when he was seized and taken to the aspca and groomed by the cocker spaniel rescue of east Texas. There was also one that had to be put under anisteshia while they cut his matts off....He was in such bad shape he had maggots coming out of his skin from the living conditions......this BITCH will pay one way or the other, the good lord above will see to that!

Stick her fat ass in one of her own kennels and let her wallow in excrement. She deserves no less.

The case has been reset to 3/31/11 at 1:30. Please write a letter to Judge Bud Childers, 117 Legion Dr., Richmond, Tx 77469, and express your opinions regarding the punishment for McClendon. She can't get away with this!!!
