Sorry readers, the pages are out of order. Page 3 is actually page 1, and 1 is 3.  (Feb 19, 2009 | post #4)

Page 3 The owner/operators of Lake Ridge Kennels in Cleveland, NC is Dee and Michael Gerrish and their 'specialty' are Goldendoodles. These people have been accused of being back yard breeders and operators of a puppy mill but Dee vehemently denies it. (of course). Recently, the owners/operators of Sixth Day Ranch in Marathon, Fl. were busted for abandoning a warehouse full of Goldendoodles including seven pregnant doodles. Total dogs and pups rescued were about 46-48. The Jones's were not arrested or charged because once caught, they relinquished all rights to the dogs to the authorities and fled the area. Lake Ridge Kennels 'mirrors' Sixth Day Ranch in every way, shape and form from selling puppies exclusively over the Internet, shipping puppies via the airlines, refusing anyone to see the kennels, refusing anyone to see the parents of the puppies, refusing to allow ANYONE on their property, delivering the puppies themselves away from their property, selling sick puppies to unsuspecting customers and demanding full payment before a puppy is even picked out by a customer! Lake Ridge Kennels goes several steps further than the owners of Sixth Day Ranch. Dee Gerrish has recently posted a doggie 'AMBER ALERT' on Buzznet.com, Blogspot.com and on her profile on MySpace. (She calls herself: simply deedee and/or hellodeedee. Her newest scam is contacting her former customers and demand that they return the dog or puppy BACK to her so she can resell it! I kid you not. Her latest blog on MySpace rambles on about how she and her husband tracked down a former customer and after a lot of hassle, got the dog back. Dee claims that the dog was "adopted " from her. Dee does NOT run a rescue. She SELLS puppies and dogs and for a hefty price.  (Feb 19, 2009 | post #3)

Page 2 Not only does she admit to reclaiming this dog from a customer in Virginia, Dee demanded that her OWN SISTER "cough up" the dog that Dee had sold to her and her husband over a year ago! Her sister paid Dee for the dog, a contract was signed and they all went on about their lives. Dee deposited the money in her bank as fast as she could and the dog went home with it's new owners. The dog apparently didn't work out because the dog was a year old and had been kept confined in a small cage on Dee's property for an entire year and the dog needless to say, had many issues. The dog did not know how to walk on a leash, had never been socialized with humans or other animals and it was so afraid of humans that it hid under a bed and stayed there. Dee's sister had three cats and the dog was afraid of them too. Dee's sister and husband decided to give the dog to some good friends they know from church and the people were delighted to have the dog. After taking the dog to their vet, it was discovered that the dog was severely underweight and had a deformed spine from being confined in a small cage all it's life. The dog also desperately needed to learn some social skills and needed to be trained. When Dee learned that the dog had been re-homed, she went absolutely insane. Dee started posting horrific, nasty, accusatory blogs all over the Internet about her sister and when she didn't get a reaction from her sister, Dee started making unwelcome calls to her sister's home. Dee demanded to know where the dog was. Dee demanded that her sister give her the new owner's name, address and phone number AND the name, phone number and address of the animal clinic. When her sister unplugged her phone, Dee emailed her sister's husband and threatened to send her husband to their front door to get that dog. Dee's sister notified the authorities. Because Dee wasn't getting anywhere with her empty threats, Dee posted the doggie 'amber alert' on the afore mentioned websites. Not only is this insane, where does Dee get off demanding all of her former customer's dogs back that she sold to them? My question is, even if Dee COULD get all the dogs back, is she going to resell them? Talk about being greedy and crazy!  (Feb 19, 2009 | post #2)

Yoga instructor tased for yelling at officer

Wow, it's a good thing the officer didn't use one of those elephant guns!!! I think some of these officers are getting taser-happy. I think it's probably the officers who never get to shoot anyone with their gun so any chance they get, they pull out the taser gun. I can't wait until an officer tasers someone's elderly grandmother because her hearing aid battery died and she yells at an officer,"WHAT ? WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" ZZZZZZZZZZZZAPPPP! !!!!!!  (Dec 21, 2007 | post #42)

Teen who threw ball at pregnant girl in Fort Lauderdale c...

Only the boy knows for certain if he intended to injure the unborn fetus. If the boy and pregnant girl were tossing the football back and forth and she was hit in the stomach accidentally, then there is no crime IMO. However, the article didn't state it that way. It sounds like the boy purposely hit the girl hard in the stomach with the ball. Not only did she tell him to stop, she moved away from him.He picked up the ball, went over to where she was and hit her hard once again in the stomach. He didn't throw the ball at her until AFTER she told him she was going to have a baby. Someone posted a comment about the kids being black. What difference does race make? There is a dead fetus, an injured girl and a young man who allegedly committed a crime. What if she were YOUR daughter and the baby was going to be your grandchild? What if the boy were YOUR son? White, black, Hispanic,Asian, it makes no difference.  (Dec 21, 2007 | post #106)

City may cap pets per household

I am a dog owner and I understand where they are 'coming from'. There are many, many people out there who are animal 'collectors' and don't take care of what they have. There are 'back yard breeders' who allow their female dogs (or cats) pump out litter after litter and the numbers get so overwhelming that it gets out of control. If you live next to or near one of these people you know what I'm talking about. Thankfully I don't live near any. I've read about neighbors living next to bird owners who own large aviaries and the birds are so noisy, the sound is deafening. On the flip side though, it only takes ONE non-stop yapping dog to make you want to tear your hair out. any.  (Dec 21, 2007 | post #5)

Rap videos can lead young girls to alcohol: Study 2 hours...

I have listened to music since I was a teen and I am in my fifties now. I am open-minded, always have been. I try to understand things that sometimes puzzle me and make every attempt to see things from another's point of view. I am a white female and come from the hippie generation and have friends and coworkers of various races. My parents hated the music of my generation, I hated theirs. I love music and enjoy a wide spectrum of music. I have a very large music collection and included in it, believe it or not, is some of the music my parents listened to. While growing up, I wanted to 'fit in' somewhere so I emulated those I thought were 'cool' and 'hip'. If the 'cool' people were smoking pot, I did too. If they were dancing around naked high on LSD, I did the same thing. I was 'cool'. We drank beer, smoked weed, listened to music, and 'free-love' was everywhere. I haven't done drugs or drank alcohol in many, many years. Those days are gone. My point is, we all want to fit in somewhere and when we find our 'nitch', we feel important. We belong. It isn't exclusive to the black race, white race or any other race. It's a human need. Anything negative that comes from 'belonging' is part of it. We can't escape from the negative. I would like to say this about rap and hip-hop 'music': I don't know where this originated from or who started it and I really don't care. IMO, rap and hip-hop (mostly rap) isn't music. White people rap, Hispanics rap, Asians rap and even middle Eastern people rap. Anyone that can speak, can 'rap'. Pick up a microphone and start talking. Make sure you grab your crotch, point into the air, wave your hand around, and don't hit yourself in the eye with your extremely large 'bling'. Oh, and be sure to show us all your underwear. These 'rappers' came out of the wood-work with their awful rhymes; shouting to the world about killing cops, bitches, ho's, money, bling, etc. and created a strange following of admirers. The admirers bought the records in droves and made these street-corner nobodies, rich. Music??? WHERE IS THE MUSIC?? To all of you who listen to rap and hip-hop, drive around in your car with the bass turned up so loud that it breaks the sound barrier, slump down in the seat of your car so low that only the top of your head shows, allow your pants to hang down so low that you walk like you are already wearing shackles....I say this to you: Those of us who don't share your lifestyle are laughing at you. In my eyes, you are not a thug or a gangster. I don't care if you have a trunk full of guns and drugs and a back seat full of bitches. You are NOBODY. You are a disgrace to your race. I have a news flash for you too: REAL gangsters and members of organized crime don't walk the streets with the crotch of their pants hanging down to their knees. I doubt if they listen to 'rap'. Rappers who have made money in the music industry had better be investing it wisely because there will come a day when this fad fades away. Perhaps they should learn how to read and play music and become a MUSICIAN.  (Dec 16, 2007 | post #100)

Cop accused of pocketing $90 in set-up

If all the "pigs" are dead, who will YOU call when YOU need help? I'm surprised that Mr. Rush took a measly $90.00. Why didn't he wait for a better opportunity? Say, on a large drug bust where there would be a great deal of cash? Hell, if you're going to risk losing your career and going to jail, don't risk it on a petty crime. Do it up BIG!!!!!!  (Dec 16, 2007 | post #47)

Christmas lost

Well, here's a "WHOOSH" for you: The birth of Jesus Christ did not occur on December 25. Also, explain to me how Mary explained to Joseph how she became pregnant by an 'angel'. This would raise the eyebrows of some. BTW, you didn't answer my question about the Easter bunny, Jeffie.  (Dec 16, 2007 | post #22)
