They will be remembered!!!

At one stage or the other, we all deal with a death. It is never nice losing a pet and thus, you can share your loss with the rest of us and share your memories so that they will be remembered.

They will be remembered!!!

Postby Boskobra » Thu Aug 25, 2011 4:28 pm

We stay on a plot just outside Pretoria, a few km before Hammanskraal.
Yesterday morning I woke up and had my normal start to the day. :D
I came out the back door running to the front to get my lunchbox in the kombuis; I saw one of our Jack Russles lying on the grass, a bit awkward 5 in the morning. I called Clowie but to no avail. :smt017
She was stiff and cold already she must have passed during the night; she was fixed last week to which I thought there must have been a complication with the operation.
Got to work and my phone rang, my mom told me that they cut our wire in the corner and poisoned another 2 Jack Russels. Clowie, Gabby and Amy.
They stole the motorcycle that was under the roof, but was found a few houses down on the side of the road.
Here is my question though WHY KILL THE DOGS AND ONLY TAKE THE BIKES BATTERY OUT!!! :smt013
It is difficult enough burying one of them but 3 of them at the same time is HORRIFYING!!!! :smt022

These brave souls put their life’s on the line for my family, they will be remembered.

RIP you 3.

My condolences bud! Losing one dog is terrible, but losing three must be excruciating!

As a Jack Russell owner myself, I just cannot imagine what you are feeling right now.

My sincere condolences to you and your family...

Bad, Bad, Bad,

When they poison the animals, then that's a clear sign of an attack being immanent. I heard some people trained their dogs to only accept food in a certain way.

That is terrible. This does not mean that they will not be back. Make sure you keep at least one dog in the house in future. That is your best alarm.

Sorry to hear this, Like BV said keep a dog in the house, we had a problem with break ins, then i got my snakes, showed the Gardner, the Cleaner and walked outside a bit with my snakes, no break ins after that.

Don't know if its the Snake sign i put up or the 2 Bull Terriers that keep them away.

Again sorry to hear about the loss its always bad losing beloved Pets to something as horrible as poisoning.

That &#*%/% sucks man, have 3 dogs myself and if i ever caught those guys i would do what a friend did on his plot. Tire then to a tree with some dogs with them and throw some meat on them for the dogs to eat but no one comes near them and leave then there for 2 days. No more break ins.
The cruelty some people have in them amazes me.

They struck AGAIN on friday night.... stole a canopy and my weights from my benchpress!!
One of the Jack Russles was poisoned but she managed to survive the "Timic", gave her a full blown dose of charcoal and water as soon as we expected something, looks like that safed her life.
I just want to catch these "Tsotsies" and let them spend some quality time in the washing room with the reptile friends. :)
Guys please be on the look out these guys will not leave you alone until they get what they can take.

I know it sounds wrong but be thankful they are stealing around the house and doing a home invasion. I dont have an answer for you that would be legal. Many more spot lights outside?
