A Personal Note To Those Who Support My Blog

Comments Off on A Personal Note To Those Who Support My Blog

I’m sure some of you have noticed the lack of posts during the past few weeks, or maybe not 😦 ; I just wanted to let you know why I’ve been away! (Some video likes have been posted but not by me, had to give passwords to family just incase…it appears some liked vimeo lol)

My apologies, I didn’t have time to let people know, it was a bit last-minute when I was finally admitted to Middlesbrough hospital in England, for several weeks; this is my last chance to gain some decent back pain relief.

It is only a week since leaving hospital, after having had a Morphine pump inserted; I still have the wounds bound, but I go back to Middlesbrough hospital (several hours from home) tomorrow to have my staples removed from the incisions on my back & stomach; & yes it hurts like hell but I’m a tough cookie…lol!!

So please bear with me whilst I recover, it could be several weeks or months before I know if the operation has been successful or not; which will affect my quality of life & also how often I can post animal news etc.!

If the operation has been a success, I should gain at most 20% less pain; not a lot but anything is better than nothing. Obviously I will try to post as & when I can, it all depends on pain, plus I can’t always get to my computer!

However, due to being on some pretty good pain meds whilst I recover, today has allowed me to get to my PC & write you; I have even managed a couple of posts; although now suffering for sitting too long….lol

Just please bear with me whilst I recover, if all goes quiet again, you know that I simply can’t post much due to pain.

So please, keep your fingers crossed & pray my operation worked; allowing me to get back to posting regular global animal posts. But more importantly, God willing, I will hopefully be able to fulfill my dream & rescue another horse, after suddenly losing my beautiful horse to colic; after surgery failed last year!

Many thanks to personal friends who follow this blog & my Twitter, who knew I was in hospital; you know who you are & your kind words were much appreciated.

I hope to be back asap!!

Kind regards

Jules

A Personal Note From Me

Comments Off on A Personal Note From Me

Dear followers

I hope most of you got the post about me being unwell, I’m so very sorry my illness has kept me away for so long! Unfortunately, I’m still not 100% & need to be back in hospital Tuesday 17th for a small operation, but I’m hoping things go to plan & I get home for Christmas.  So until then, I will try to post as much as my pain allows.

However, in the New Year I will be having further surgery on my spine, I have no idea how long I will be out of action for, but I will make sure someone keeps you posted. I can assure you, it upsets me to think animals are suffering & I’m not able to help them by telling their stories; so I will get back to normal posting as soon as is possible.

As this is linked to these accounts, my apologise for not replying to messages on Twitter or Facebook, having just had a quick glance; I see I have a lot to catch up with. Please don’t think I have been ignoring any personal messages or request to post news; I really haven’t been well enough to do much of anything. I will get round to answering them all as soon as I am able, bearing in mind I will be out of action again after my spinal surgery in the New Year. It’s going to take quite some time to catch up, I have never been away for so long before, so please bear with me!!

To enable me to catch up, I have had to delete a lot of news items sent via Email (which will hopefully have been covered by others ) on Word press blogs etc. However, I have kept & added lots more petitions to sign at the following:-

https://preciousjules1985.wordpress.com/more-up-to-date-petitions-that-need-your-signature-please/

I’ve also got some news stories I want to write-up, so please be aware, the date I post them to this blog, won’t be the date the story was first issued!

May I take this opportunity to wish you & your families A Very Happy, Healthy, Joyful Christmas & A Bright & Prosperous New Year.

Pathologist suspects people killed 50 seals on P.E.I.: Necropsy Confirms Seals Bludgeoned To Death

Comments Off on Pathologist suspects people killed 50 seals on P.E.I.: Necropsy Confirms Seals Bludgeoned To Death

A gruesome discovery of over 50 dead and bloodied Grey Seals at Murray Harbour has sparked international outrage with demands that the perpetrator/s be brought to book.

Please sign the petition below & read the details of the Necropsy; the human animals that did this brutal slaughter, must pay!

A P.E.I. wildlife pathologist says he suspects that people are behind the deaths of more than 50 grey seals that washed up in Murray harbour last weekend.

Fisheries officers have sent samples of the dead animals to a wildlife pathologist at the Atlantic Veterinary College. (Name withheld by request)

Pierre-Yves Daoust, a wildlife pathologist with the University of Prince Edward Island, says students from the school found the seals on the province’s eastern shore Saturday, just a day after seeing them healthy in the same area.

He says he suspects the seals were killed by people as they were found with wounds on their bodies, but he is carrying out necropsies to rule out the possibility of infections or other natural causes of death.

Daoust, who works at UPEI’s Atlantic Veterinary College, says it would be highly unusual to have such a large number of seals die so quickly of natural causes.

He says the results will be passed on to investigators with the Fisheries Department in about a week.

Justice for the seals bludgeoned to death at Prince Edward Island

Postmortem results conducted by wildlife pathologist Dr. Pierre-Yves Daoust confirm that the seals, many of them still nursing and just a few weeks old, were bludgeoned to death by having their skulls smashed in with a blunt object. Several seals managed to survive this savage and unprovoked attack only to suffer further agony by freezing to death.

We are offering a R5 000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator/s.

Poodle Gets Makeover, Chance At New Life

Comments Off on Poodle Gets Makeover, Chance At New Life

“OMG…a Poodle…it looks more like an alien! This is shocking & has infuriated the hell out of me! I’m sick of seeing instances like this. That poor girl must have been in agony, carrying those massive locks of matted hair around. Why for the love of God, does somebody get a dog like this & not brush it weekly?? I just don’t understand the mentality of some people…do they really look at the dog & think it’s ok? well they must do; or else we wouldn’t keep seeing dogs in such appalling conditions!”

“All I can say is thank the Lord she was rescued, had she not been; I fear her life would have ended sooner & in a severe amount of pain too! But I have to ask, why the hell was this person not prosecuted for this? Just because they allowed the dog to be surrendered, does not excuse them, when all it needed was a daily quick brush; it just sheer bloody laziness!

“Ok, those that surrender due to unforeseen circumstances, who have not caused the animal any pain or neglected it in any way; no, don’t punish the responsible owners!”

 “I say, punish those who surrender an animal, that has obviously been neglected, abused or cruelly treated; like this poor girl, looks like she had been neglected for a very long time, if not her whole life; her owners should still be prosecuted!! Had they not surrendered her, they would have eventually had the dog taken off them & have been prosecuted…in these cases, it just doesn’t seem fair. These owners get off Scott free; & still have the luxury of buying further animals if they so wish! No, the law needs to be changed to reflect the difference in circumstances when surrendered!!”

“Why the hell get a dog, who’s coat is going to need attention if you have no intention of either keeping it clean & brushed yourself; or sending it to a fur dresser? I’m sorry but I have little sympathy with those who say, I couldn’t do it, or couldn’t afford to send to a fur dresser…that is no excuse. God chose to give humans a voice, so they should bloody well use it. Surely they could ask the local shelter or somebody to help, but far too many times the owner doesn’t say anything!! I don’t know how they can look at their pets & think every is fine or just pretend everything is hunky dory! “

“If a murderer handed himself in, should that mean he doesn’t have to pay for his crime? No, he will still be punished…what’s the difference??

“I have Yorkshire Terrier’s whose hair, I believe is the most similar to human hair, it certainly grows like human hair & they don’t moult. In the summer, they have their coats cut fairly short; which is much easier to maintain. But it gets still gets knotted if not brushed; for easiness on my part, they have 2 brushes, one is kept in the pocket of my wheelchair, the other next to my bed; so wherever I am, they get brushed until they decide to run off. However, during the winter I let their coats grow to keep them warm; & although they are still bathed & brushed every month, like in summer…they both still go to the fur dresser  every 12 weeks. Why? well the main reason is their hair needs to be cut around their faces, nails trimmed & anal glands seen to! Plus they both have needle sharp teeth; I only have 2 hands & rather like the 10 fingers I have…so it’s best left to the professionals!!

DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Animal shelter volunteers in Denton have rescued a neglected 14-year-old poodle and are hoping to soon give her a new life.

Ginger as she was brought in

Ginger as she was brought in

Ginger was rescued from a hoarding situation in Denton when her owner decided to give her up in hoping someone would provide a better home.

“Her hair was matted so badly that it was matted into her mouth,” said Stacy Smith with the Humane Society of Flower Mound. “There’s still hair that we’re not able to get out of her teeth until we’re able to put her under anesthesia.”

Smith says doctors have treated Ginger for dehydration, though other health concerns remain according to the shelter Facebook page.

“She has a heart murmur and is running a fever–no surprise she has an infection going on so she got a shot and we’ll run bloodwork tomorrow when she is rehydrated a bit.”

Ginger after being shaved, bless her!

Ginger has so far eaten a big meal of specially prepared food and is resting comfortably.

People can follow Ginger’s progress at #gingerthepoodle on twitter.
