Re: “Brindi and the True Believers

Jeez Louise "Dontblamethemessenger" wouldn't it be better to lay low? You almost got fined $36,500?!! Even if your military pension is bigger than the HRM contract, why risk losing it by mouthing off? Don't forget the SPCA made a pretty serious mistake by keeping Brindi way longer than 30 days! They kept defending themselves just like you do, and eventually they lost the whole HRM contract. The truth is, their real mistake was not saying no to killing her up front, so the whole thing could have been avoided. Locking her up all that time was just as wrong. The public complained very loudly but the SPCA stupidly thought they had to protect their HRM contract by refusing to help Brindi, even though they knew she was a good dog.
And in return for doing HRM's dirty work for two years, HRM turned around and dumped the contract even before the court case ended, with the "long term" vs. "short term" excuse! Then HRM put Brindi in the new Homeward Bound pound for two whole months. It's even more short-term than the Metro Shelter - the only outdoor space it has is a two-car parking lot with a blocked-off fence. Two months on top of 22 months - and HRM wouldn't let them walk Brindi outside the fenced area, so the poor dog never sniffed a blade of grass or even the dirt on the ground! That's HORRIBLE! 12 of us complained about it at the time but the SPCA pretended it was okay. Why? Simple: politics!
The reason you're so darn defensive and attack so viciously - much like the SPCA did - is to avoid the sad fact that you're doing something wrong. But be warned! Just because HRM thinks "long term" means keeping a dog locked up for two years and longer at your kennel doesn't mean it's okay at all. It's not!!! And with a 3x4 or 4x4 pen, your kennel is really just another short-term holding center in my opinion, and the outdoor area is somewhat better, but not by much. Brindi's alone a lot and has no doggie company at all. The only reason you're getting away with this (so far) is because of HRM's vendetta against Brindi's owner, and by constantly attacking her character, it's easy for HRM to get the courts to go along with it. Pure politics. And politics doesn't make it right.
Politics is the only reason the SPCA isn't laying charges of abuse and negligence on both you & HRM. It's not about what's good for Brindi or any of the other dogs and you know it!
But hey, politics change overnight, there's an election soon, so I'd stay quiet if I were you!
