Post #1 of 32
New neighbors moved in a year ago just opposite our house two doors up. There's these two people, one woman & one man, who look like sister & brother who adopted a mongrel pup few months back. They named it Bobby (they thought it was a male but it's a female) but we call her Poocha. She infact knows the name Poocha better than Bobby becoz they hardly call her.
Brutally Kicked & Internally Damaged By Owner
Anyway, Poocha's owners are very very irresponsible people & Poocha went on heat at the age of five or 6mths old. She mated with three or four different male neighborhood dogs (they ALL infact belong to irresponsible owners who let them loose everyday including Poocha) & she got pregnant & gave birth to 4 puppies.
Two months later, the puppies are now grown & are now walking & eating solid food. They are also roaming the streets too becoz they can fit through their main gate which was not fenced up. Owners don't care if they get run over or not.
My mom & I like Poocha alot becoz she's quite cute & friendly for a mongrel. We feed her everyday becoz owners don't feed her, only once in every few days or once a week & we also sometimes let her in to our porch to hang out with the rest of our dogs. I even gave her a new collar to wear becoz her old one was disgusting & the clip was already broken. I have been playing the the pups too. They are so adorable but smelly.
Just three days ago, I met one of Poocha's 4 pups who is the smallest & weakest. He always gets attacked by the other three healthier & much much bigger pups when it comes to food time. He is infact I thought the cutest of them all but he was slightly diseased & have blood above his tail. I'm sure it was caused from the fights. He's a loner & he wonders around by himself. Poocha doesn't even play with him as much with the other three.
Anyway, my mom & I were preparing for a dog party yesterday when I heard a loud yap that came from one of the puppies. I thought, "oh it's just them fighting again" but after that, I saw the owner carrying a dust pan & throwing something out of her house. We thought she was just throwing some dirt.
But when guests started arriving & walked over there, they told me that there was a pup sleeping on the grass. I walked with my dog over there too to play becoz it's quite a big land & we always bring our dogs there to go toilet & all & then I saw the puppy lying down motionless right on the pathway where we & other people always walk. It looked like it was sleeping becoz it was still breathing but it was like, dead & limp.
I touched it & tried to wake it up but it wouldn't. I knew something was wrong becoz he was okay this morning & played with it. Even the other two days, he was fine & happy. Guests even saw it & it was just not a nice thing to see. I mean, how can you just chuck the puppy right on the pathway??? It was so sick!
It was already dying & we couldn't anything about it becoz the party was on & guests & dogs were coming & we had to watch over them. We were just basically too busy to help it or else, we would have brought it to the vet & euthanised it straight away. It was clearly in a lot of pain...
I went back home to get a plastic bag & when I came back to where the puppy was, I saw the grosses thing ever! Its sibling was trying to eat it! It was shaking & pulling it violently. I whacked the puppy to stop becoz the injured puppy was screaming in pain but couldn't struggle becoz it was like totally paralyzed.
I placed the pup in the bag gently & carried it in my arms to the other side, away from all the guests & away from the pathway. When I placed it down on the ground, the pup vomited large amounts of thick blood. I was like, "oh my gosh!" It was really horrible but the puppy was still breathing. I tried tapping its eyes but it was not blinking & its eyes was turning grey already.
I felt so terrible for the puppy & I can't understand why the owner would do such thing to this innocent fella. I've a feeling, the owner got very fed up of it for some reason. Maybe the puppy shat in the porch & she did not like it or maybe the puppy went into the house. The owners do not allow them in the house & always chase them out. But that evening she was really angry & then kicked or maybe stomped on it hard till it ruptured an organ inside it or maybe broke a rib & the rib stabbed one of the organs.
I couldn't do anything about it becoz I had to get back to the party & I just left it laying there. I left the bag open so that it could breath. When the party was over around midnight (6 hours later since the party started), I went to check on the pup again. It was still breathing! My gosh, what a slow & painful death it was for him. I felt so bad.
Honestly, I didn't know which was crueler. Leaving it suffering in pain for hours & hours OR tying the bag up & suffocating it straight away to end its suffering? Really, which one was crueler? But I couldn't do such thing of killing the pup like that! I was hoping that it will die faster. I have not checked on the pup yet today but I'm sure it has already died.
We will be bringing it to the dumpster soon becoz stray dogs will be coming to eat it it & maybe even its siblings & their mother Poocha will be eating the fella becoz they're hungry. We cannot blame them for eating their sibling but it's not a nice sight lah!
We dare not play a fool with its owners becoz I don't know what they are up to in their house. They live in a corner house. There are always big fights in there. Woman against man & then there are pretty Indonesian girls coming in to stay with them too. I honestly don't know what they are up to & doing. They are weird people...
Just two years back, we had a terrible fight with one of the irresponsible dog owners. They live just opposite us also & they are dangerous. It was so bad that we had to make a police report against them to protect ourselves, our dogs & our property. We really don't want this to happen again!
We're now not gonna play, talk or even feed Poocha or her puppies becoz we don't want to risk another one's life. I'm just gonna let them be. What ever they do, it's their problem. The owners might be angry also becoz we LIKE them. So maybe that's why she even killed that pup. And when she chucked it right in the pathway it was like her telling us, "Since you like the pups so much, here! Do something about this dead one." You know that kind of thing? Some owners don't like this. So, we will not disturb the dogs anymore.
Whatever they do to them, it's really none of our business. These people are not people who you can play a fool with. They are gangsters & can potentially be dangerous.
Ive attached a photo of the pup here. It was still alive when I took it. Don't worry, it's not bloody but if you can't take the sight of a suffering pup, please don't look.
Sorry for posting this picture here but I just wanted to show you, how heartbreaking especially when it's the pup that I played with three days ago, the day after & yesterday. And now it's dead.
I was trying to hold my tears back when I saw it so pathetically in pain & motionless but many guests already arrived, so I tried my best not to. All this happened on the day when we was supposed to be having a fun, happy & joyful time. I'm glad the pup is no longer in pain.
