  1. Dear friends on the list. I had this message on my private email from an Italian sheltie friend, which I will translate for you into English. Please, send it to everybody you know, send it through other international or national smartgroup lists, if necessary translate it into your own language. Thanks everybody who will give a little help to make people aware of this immense cruelty, that is happening just in front of everybody's eyes. Alfredo "if you follow the below link, you will get to the PETA (people for Ethical Treatment of Animals) web site, an international association that takes care of the rights of animals. Although it is of an enormous cruelty, please have a look at the video "China shocking dog and cat fur trade", in which is documented the awful thing done on dogs and cats in China in order to get the furs which will eventually go to the Western markets. Who is promoting this campaign is the chain J.Crew, but ALL goods coming from China, with some fur in it is causing these bad treatments on animals. PLEASE send this message to everybody you know, as much as possible, because we cannot ignore the fact that all this happens just in front of us. Unfortunately I have watched this video too, and I just can't stop crying." Se seguite il link sottostante arriverete al sito della Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), associazione internazionale per la tutela dei diritti degli animali. Anche se è di una crudeltà incommensurabile, vi invito a guardare il filmato "China's shocking dog and cat fur trade", nel quale è documentato il calvario subito da cani e gatti in cina al fine di ottenere le pellicce destinate al commercio occidentale. Portabandiera di questa barbarie è la catena J.Crew, ma tutta la merce di provenienza cinese con applicazioni di pelliccia alimenta i maltrattamenti degli animali. Vi prego di fare girare il più possibile questo messaggio perch

    Not been online

    Have not been online much this last 10 days have a litter of six frenchie puppies to look after. Did have 7 but one dear little chap was to small to survive (he was only a third of the size of the other pups.) I hope everyone is safe and well despite the hurricanes . Take care and God bless Ickle
  3. I am a co-ordinator for sheltie rescue in the UK and we have foster parents who I agree with you are the most marvellous of folks We should cherish them always Bless them all wherever they live in the world. Loved that last tale .Thanks for sharing. Ickle

  5. Sorry I know this is not about dogs but have you all given up clicking on the awareness site It is very lonely there now Ickle :cry:
  6. [size=6][b]DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!! Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a check." "Oh, by the way don't worry about my bulldog. He won't bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!" "I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!" When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work. The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled, "Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!" To which the parrot replied, "Get him, Spike[/b][/size] From ik sheltie list Ickle

Romeo was strong healthy 6 years old Bull Terrier who was very well taken care off. Living in one of the best families I can think off. Romeo got sick on last Thursday morning throwing up yellow bile . He was very sick.His fewer was up to 105,....high white count. Kidneys still good.The vet has been with him all weekend and has let owners stay with him a lot. His owner crawled in the kennel with him and just rubbed him and talked to him. She felt so helpless. By Saturday his Kidney/Creatinine was 7.0. 18 oak leaves were in a perfect ball sitting on the bottom of his stomach. There was a fold of skin between his stomach and his pancreas. That fold had created an abscess that had begun to leak into his abdomen cavity and caused his high temperature and vomiting. His stools were normal the whole time. He never was blocked. The poison from the abscess spread instantly during the surgery. He went into septic shock and all of his intestines hemorrhaged. Monday his Creatinine was 10......... Romeo died in arms of his mom and dad on Monday. Please warn everyone about what can happen and how it happens so quickly. Romeo was such a love to them. This has broken their hearts. Thank you Yana/Lionheart's Bullies[/b][/color][/size] [b]Just had to pass this on Ickle[/b]

  14. [b]Thought the group would appreciate this Reply-To: [email][email protected][/email] Had to share this email I AM YOUR DOG Author Unknown I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life. Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land. I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still. Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short. --Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere) [/b] Ickle
