I hope everyone listened to the report on Ch 10 last night - These people had the dog since it was a pup. It was only five years old when they put it down. These people need a mental health check. People who have money do weird things only because they have the means, the money , and they think the world revolves around them! I am sure as I sit here composing this that people who are selfish , cruel, and inhumane when it comes to animals and humans that they will have to answer to someone other than me or you when they pass on.

It depends on which organization you obtain your guide from. For example, the Seeing Eye charges $150 for the first dog and $50 for each successor dog. This represents a very small fraction of the cost to train a guide dog which typically exceeds $20,000.
Guide Dogs for the Blind does not charge for their dogs. The dog, all equipment, and the handler training are provided at no cost to a qualified blind person. However, the estimated cost of whelping, raising, training and equipping a Guide may run anywhere from $25,000 to $65,000 when all costs are factored in. Since GDB is a non-profit, they receive no government funding, all the funds are from private and corporate donors.
thank you for the information- it is very clear that these people took advantage. it is a "throw away society' that is how many people view pet ownership...and for those who receive something for nearly nothing. Goes for many children in the valley as well.

This is the most exciting thing to happen in Terre Haute for a long time. Not since Stiffy Green has such an awful thing been done to an animal....but I think they waited until Stiffy died. The Stadlers have topped that!!!! The Indiana/National funeral home and veterinarian associationsb need to be notified. The least that would happen...a reprimand. Possibly their licenses would be lfted. The best way to send the Stadlers a message is to boycott their businesses. Hurt them in their pocketbooks. If you frequent their businesses, you helped pay for this. Unfortunately, I am a customer at two of their businesses, but no more!!!!

probably not. Dogs are helpful to humans in many ways , i.e. police dogs, helping people who are handicapped, those who are blind, cadaver dogs, arson dogs to name a few things . Thus the term "mans best friend". Don't think we could put the hamster on that list - other than being there as a small pet for someone who cares.

Euthenization is a slow, panful death for animals...especially those in good health because it takes longer for them to die.

I once had the misfortune of having to put down a dog who had gotten to the point of not even being able to stand. It was mercifully quick (nearly instantaneous). That does not make this right or wrong, but I wanted the truth stated on this.

Also, I know people at the funeral home. They tried many times to talk the family out of putting the dog down, even checking into the legality of it. If they had not gone along with the family's wishes, the family would of just gone elsewhere. The dog would not of been saved no matter what the funeral home did. Another funeral home even offered to put the dog down for the family. The funeral home involved took on the funeral thinking that they couold talk the family out of it, but to no avail. So lighten up.

Ligten up please! I have been to funerals where the directors will not allow photos or other items even in the casket. I am sure they could refuse a full size dog. It was all due to the almighty dollar they did not want to lose. Was the dog embalmed for proper display? fi not was this not a health hazzard for a three day viewing? Espsecially a week after death

The family is very involved wth Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church. Maybe Methodists are okay with this. It could be part of the beliefs of the church.

First, let me say, I, know that the people at the funeral home, and they dod everything within reason to stop the dog from being put down.

Second, funeral homes and funeral directors are here to carry out what the the family wishes, as long as it is legal. It is not their place to judge others, but to serve others in time of need.

Third, the dog was put down the day before the funeral, not a week before.

Fourth, the visitaion and funeral where held in the family's church (WTHI, you got that wrong). The funeral home thus had little or no say in people taking pictures.

Fifth, don't presume you know the facts and stir things up when you have not a clue what the situation was or what went on.

no one NEEDED to know anything. this was a private family matter, but because ONE member of this family is so self centered and ignorant now the rest of the family (including children) have to endure the criticism and hatred aimed toward their family. This family followed through on a loved ones last wish, that should have been the end of it. I can guarantee you it was not easy for them to put the dog down, but it was what their loved one wanted. this NEVER should have been made public! and just an FYI, the shelter kills perfectly healthy dogs almost every day, but that's different, right? I'm not saying that this was right in any way, I'm just saying it's really no one's business!

first of all, there are only TWO stories I have commented on in this forum, so get your facts straight about me. and no, it's not a private matter anymore, BUT that is not the entire family's fault, it's the fault of ONE member of that family, and the story has since been deleted from WTHI's facebook page and news page.
