Friday the 23rd proved to be a bit of a disastrous day for me. Usually when I get up in the morning, when I am at home that is, our two dogs – or rather the two bigger dogs (we have two small ones as well) – a Boer Bull (Buster) and a smaller Staffi cross Jack Russell (Missy) are full of beans jumping around waiting for their morning munchies. This morning Missy was not her usual self and appeared very quiet and did not look well at all. She refused her usually much sort after munchies and just lay in her box looking at me with very sad and sick eyes.

I needed to get to the Beares store in Rosettenville and so with much concern headed off, but all the time worrying sick about Missy. Five years ago our beautiful male Staffi, Chester was poisoned by some heartless swines and we witnessed him suffer a really terrible death and so my big concern was that Missy had also been poisoned because she had been fine when we had put her to bed the previous night. When I arrived at the Beares store in Rosettenville I discovered that it was going to be a quiet morning and so after a chat with the staff I made the decision to head home and check on Missy and to revisit the Rosettenville Beares store on Monday when I was scheduled to visit the Kenilworth Lubners store which I discovered is situated right next door to the Rosettenville Beares store.

On arriving home I was discovered that Missy was really ill but when May phoned the vet at 12pm to make sure they were open during lunch time, she was told that they were closed until 3:30pm. Missy vomited up a pile of white muck a few times and I sat force feeding her and pouring water into her and by 3:30 she was starting to look a whole lot better and by 4:30 she actually managed to extricate herself from her box, so fortunately all is well with Missy. But the reason I have written about this personal incident is that there have been many incidents of dog poisoning going on in the Germiston area over the past few years and every time I hear of them or read about them in the Germiston City News I am sickened to my stomach by the barbaric and cowardly acts being carried out by the savages living in South Africa, and when the matters are reported to the police absolutely nothing is done about it and in fact they have the attitude, “Well it’s only a dog”.

So this blog is dedicated to all those magnificent animals which have been brutally murdered by savages, and in dedicating the blog I want to share a story I read in an article regarding this sick practice. The article contained a letter from a dog owner which was published in the Germiston City News a while ago. His dogs were subjected to the horrific fate of being poisoned and I believe his letter truly reflects the anguish any dog lover/owner is subjected to when their loving pet is brutally killed in this horrible manner.

His letter read:

I hope that you are pleased with yourselves, with what you accomplished. You murdered the best K9’s that I have ever known, and just for a car. I hope that in your lifetime on earth you too will someday suffer the same horrible and excruciating death that my dogs had to suffer. I personally had to wrap them up in plastic and take them to the SPCA to be incinerated. God’s eyes never close and He sees everything – your time will come for you to explain your actions. Believe me; the gates of hell are wide open for your arrival. You might think that they were “just dogs” but they were much more than that. They were ‘Dragons’ when my six-year-old daughter played and dressed up with them, and they were soft cushions next to the pool on hot days and warm friends in front of the TV on cold nights. Our family are the people that had to explain to a two year-old and six year-old about the “bad people” that had killed their best friends. But, most of all, they were part of my family, whose lives you decided to extinguish in such a barbaric and horrible manner. May you suffer for eternity for what you have done?

To Lena: May you always run free and be the rough and tough lion that you imagined yourself to be. May you catch all the motorbikes and noisy cars that you were so after, and may the thunder, lightning and fire crackers bother you no more? Rest in peace my beloved friend.

To Deemin: As big and as heavy as you were, may you become the big loving teddy bear you always wanted to be. May there be the roughest grass there for you to scratch your back on, and may you leap over the tallest of walls with ease. I will never forget your smile. Rest in peace my gentle giant.

John Smith (Wychwood – Germiston)

So that is all I am going to write about for now. I sincerely hope that one of the savages that have been poisoning the dogs gets to read this blog and realizes what pain, suffering and anguish their despicable actions are causing.

I received a really interesting e-mail from a lady I met in Groblersdal and who did a talk to the school there with me, so I will share this with you tomorrow which will hopefully generate some interesting comments from the people out there and which, by the way, was already a part of my ‘Solution to Child Rape’ plan I have come up with and will present to Parliament soon.

So until tomorrow, keep well keep all children (and animals) safe.

Caring regards from
