Patrick, are all these people really on “HIS” side or is it more about money and clinging onto his new found fame?

Now anyone who has read my blog knows that I am madly in love with sweet Patrick! Initially I was a huge supporter of all the Patrick groups *minus the one run by that nut-job that thinks she owns “the patrick movement”* that have sprung up over the last few months, but., what I want to know is do they all really care about Patrick’s best interests or is there a sinister side to this?  I am not pointing fingers here, I simply have concerns that this may be getting out of hand.

Think about it for a second, Patrick has put GSVS on the map, he has paved the way for all these movements, he has his name attached to countless Facebook and YouTube pages, next there will be some charity spring up with his name on it and I have to say that possibility really bothers me! All of this is really starting to bother me! A friend of mine JayJay  made a statement about it the other day on her Facebook page and it really got me thinking.

I have started to think that this whole thing is starting to smack of a three-ring circus instead of creating change for Patrick and abused and neglected animals.  Still I wanted desperately to believe that there is a good intent behind it. Now I must say that I personally friended all the patrick movement groups on Facebook, because I thought we could all join together to help change something for Patrick, and for all those who suffer in silence and solitude, I thought maybe it could help find him the right owner, get him more medical help, insure that he never sees abuse again, and I still want to support them, but…, there is a side to me that thinks, I just don’t know! Are they really doing right by him or not?

Now I am not diminishing anything that anyone with a good heart and the right intentions has done, however.., for some the road to good intentions can sometimes be veered from, in the pursuit of all things golden or to be on the receiving end of a flash bulb.

Lets be realistic here, a vast majority of the public crave celebrity, even covet it!  A recent study done concluded that the majority of students polled would rather be the baggage carrier for a celebrity than be President, be a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, a Doctor, I mean seriously! And I believe it goes deeper then just students, I bet there is a huge group of society that would sign up today if they could. If people would rather be the gopher to a celebrity than anything else, I would not be surprised in the least to see at least a modicum of this personality type set their sights on Patrick! After all he’s easy, he is just one little dog alone and still quite defenseless against these bloodsuckers, if you will!

I guess what I am saying is that my biggest fear is that this tiny puppy who did nothing wrong, his only crime if you can all it that, is bad luck! The misfortune of ending up in Kisha’s hands instead of a loving home. Where does poor Patrick go from here? There are groups looking to take Patrick away from GSVS and make him some side-show freak, and personally I can only speak for myself when I say, I pray they don’t succeed!

Now if you think about all the dogs that have died in shelters, with no fan fare, no swarms of paparazzi or reporters waiting to plaster their faces on the ten o”clock news, no vets stepping up to say the will forego money in leu of helping a life, and certainly no thousands of adoring fans waiting in the wings,no prospects of hope in escaping their fates because their story never made local and international news! Instead they died on a cold concrete floor, or in a kennel, out in the snow.., ALONE! All those who have been abused, neglected, starved, chained and ignored, it could drive you crazy just trying to fathom the numbers on that one! Patrick was lucky, Yes that’s right lucky! He was spared death and given another chance at having a great life, if the powers that be don’t screw it up!

If they don’t get misguided, and don’t just want Patrick for all the wrong reasons,  just look at all the fights that have broken out and are yet to come over whom he should stay with, where he should be, who should get to hold him…,call me crazy but I think he should be in a “real home!” A safe one, with somebody that just wants him for him and nothing else! No 15 minutes of fame, just someone who wants to love an unloved dog! Someone who can be trusted to do what is right for Patrick! Without hesitation and question, not for publicity, just because they have love to give that unloved little dog! 

Originally I sided with the un-named GSVS employee that wanted to adopt Patrick, but now I have to say I’m not so sure! I’m not saying he shouldn’t, but only the very best decisions have to be made from here out. Make Patrick the focus, not money, not celebrity, and certainly not for their own gains!

Well I guess all those, including myself, who give a voice to the voiceless, who want to chapion those who are forgotten and abused, we will all have to be there to make sure that right is done not wrong! I wish this puppy only the very best of things in his life no more abuses, OF ANY KIND!

My thoughts, hopes, and all the positive energy I can gather are coming your way my dear sweet innocent little Patrick! May karma and luck see you through to a great life, a new home, and love! just love!

For the rest of you who seek fame and fortune off this little guy, you are being watched! do what’s right get him out of GSVS and into a HOME!

Patrick, Kisha Curtis, and the fight for stronger punishments for animal abusers.

Today I find myself wondering, hoping, that the right judgement for justice will be laid at the feet of Kisha Curtis. We all know what she is, we all know what she did, and we all know no matter what her mother would like you to believe, she IS an abuser! No if’s and’s or but’s, that is what she is, through and through. She is no stranger to run in’s with the law, she has had her children taken by DCFS in the past, she continues to break the laws we as a society set up to keep order and to protect the weak.

The DA says they can only go by what the LAW will allow them to charge her with, but really, this is just a cop-out, a way of keeping prison over populations down. If lawyers can bend and twist and pervert the system to suit them, to set the guilty free, then why can’t we bend them back to correct a wrong and to more adequately protect the weak in the future?

Mark my words this is not the last abuse that the “Emaciator” will inflict on an innocent animal, it never is! She will simply get better at covering it up. My fears are that we are allowing our society to focus more on the criminals rights, then the rights of the victims. We routinely put the victims needs and rights on the back burner.

 As an example a pedophile will molest a child and if caught go to prison, for less than ten years, they will receive counselling, for free, but at the taxpayers expense. When we all know in our hearts there is no way to fix a disturbed mind. They will not have to work, or pay rent or bills, they will troll the internet for future victims, and call it “personal  enrichment” They will spend their time in absolutely un productive ways for the most part, while, their victims will have to pay for their counselling, their life will never be the same, they will have to work, pay taxes, which will go to housing their perpetrator, and they will never be the same again.

Now I know what you are thinking, what does a pedophile have to do with a dog abuser? They are one in the same, distrubed and un-repairable. It’s a sign of the times I guess, we all know deep down, whether we want to admit it or not, that these types of people will never change because they can’t. They are damaged goods with bad genes, and no remorse. They will continue to do what they have always done which is abuse.

Be it their child, their wife, their dog, or just the system in general, it will continue. We can reform a thief, we can educate the ignorant, and we can feed the hungry, but we can’t fix the unstable mind of the abuser.

For Patrick’s sake and for all that he endured I pray they do right by him, I cling to my seat holding my breath for fear that they will not. Only time will tell. Tomorrow Kisha will face the judge, and tomorrow will witness either the betterment of our judicial system, or just one more failure. I guess we will have to wait and see but I have to say I am more fearful, than I am hopeful at this point.

Memphis Animal Control, so where’s the control, where’s the compassion? Animal control has lost their way!

SAVE-THE-ANIMALS-OF-MEMPHIS-TN

I have heard of other shelters, sadly, with as many violations and problems. The biggest problem is the people, plain and simple. I have seen rescues that run like a top, the dogs and cats are happy, healthy, and ready for their new homes. So it can be done.

It must be done with compassion, with understanding, and for the love of the animals. I do not see that here! Change is coming Memphis because you are on the radar! Get your city in check and do it soon! Your reputation, and citizen’s happiness depends on your ability to adapt for the better.

Make us proud Memphis, be an example for other towns to follow, admit mistakes, and correct them, it’s a very simple task, and its one the people will respect you for and work with you to attain. So I ask you, are you ready for it?
