Arizona to investigate 'Doggie Disneyland' where 20 dogs died
Digital Journal ^ | Megan Hamilton

Posted on 06/26/2014 12:23:43 AM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Authorities are investigating the deaths of 20 dogs at Green Acre Kennel, in Gilbert, Arizona. The place had billed itself as a "Doggie Disneyland" promising plenty of land for dogs to run free with no cages.

To Ryan Ingraham and his wife, it sounded like a great place to board their two black Labradors while they took a vacation.

Ingraham had contacted MaLeisa and Todd Hughes, owners of the business, two months ago. Then about a week ago, he decided to take the dogs to the Hughes' house for a trial run.

“a scandal that involves the son of Senator Jeff Flake, (R-Ariz)”

Surprise, surprise.

People like this need to be taken out and shot. There is no redeeming quality to them. None.

Time to run power lines through iron pipe.

The people who run the place should suffer the same fate the poor dogs did.

Somebody just generously offered to *take us to Sturgis* for 2 weeks.

Had to turn them down.

Yes, it was heartbreaking to not be able to go to Biker Mecca but there are things much *more* heartbreaking.

I told Himself that he should go.

No sense in both of us missing out on a dream.

I doubt he will.

He fears I won’t survive.

This is bullshit.

“MaLeisa Hughes stated that nothing could have been done to prevent what happened.”

Herpers use temperature/climate alarm systems that notify them, wherever they are if a catastrophic failure occurs.

When you have exotic snakes worth many thousands of dollars lying around, unable to escape any adverse condition that might manifest, you *prepare*.

“The tragedy is growing into a scandal that involves the son of Senator Jeff Flake, (R-Ariz) and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is also no stranger to scandal.”

Scandal? This is a hit piece on Arpaio. This is the “scandal.”

The WAPO article doesn’t attack Arpaio:

So how long to fix it, an hour?

These folks were putting on a front, knowing that the dogs would not tell on them... except, well, they did.

One of the totally cool things about snakes, is, they can do well for *months* without food and weeks without water, if the situation arises.

The water issue, is, of course very much less than optimal or desirable but it is doable as they really do not drink a lot.

[I have rescued snakes who were severely dehydrated from months of no water and after one loooooooooooong drink and a soak, they bounced right back]

Leaving them for a length of time is no issue.

They all have spill-proof, heavy crockery water bowls that contain *much* more water than they would ever need, even for weeks at a time.

The dogs, however, are nowhere near as easy.

I have friend who is a vet tech and she operates an in-home pet sitting service.

The dogs know and love her when we visit the vet.

*But*, they are totally different animals when they’re *here*.

This is their home and their fortress.

I cannot see them allowing anyone in to tend them, especially Seven.

She absolutely does not allow what she considers “trespassers” and she will back up her bark with biting.

So, I do not go away for more than a few hours at a time.

But that’s okay.

They’re all more than worth the “aggravation”.

Bless you for your kindness, though.

The lead article complains that Arpaio’s attention was so badly being monopolized by illegal immigrant affairs that he was unable to respond satisfactorily to sexual assault crimes or this apparent fraud and animal cruelty crime. I have no way of knowing if this complaint is an accurate or even reasonable accusation.

True, but home security systems feature options that monitor your home for many other things besides fires and burglaries.

Tragically, the same vet clinic that hurt Odin’s neck also had their entire pack of kenneled dogs burn alive because, believe it or not, *they had no smoke detectors*.

None.

In a place of business.

Incredible.

They really played it to the hilt though and had everyone feeling sorry for *them*.

It’s run by a liberal wench.

Go figure.

Well they would have needed a remote alarm. Dogs are not going to let themselves out upon hearing a smoke alarm.

Had to take care of my uncle and aunt’s spoiled cocker spaniel once. Could not lead him by the collar out the door. He’d just chomp at my hand. Solved the problem by making a trail of potato chips out the door, which he’d follow then go out in the yard.

The system calls your cell phone, the alarm company and the cops/fire dept., if necessary.

Somebody would have known.

She tried to eat the Alienware tech last week.

To his credit, he was unflappable.

Not sure if bribery would work on her or Odin since they will not accept treats unless I okay it.

Funny about the chips.

I expect the Disney corporation to take legal action to make sure their name isn’t associated with this mess. These folks could be looking at a huge lawsuit for use of the name.

Blame there goes to the county supervisors who refused to fund the processing of rape kits or otherwise prioritize the cases. The child welfare snafu is more of the same plus old time nepotism.

If I owned a dog, I would ask to see the entire facility before deciding to leave my dog there - and if I was not allowed, I would not leave them.

Its so hard to know who to trust these days. Incompetent people are everywhere!

We have one dog at a time and they all have had different personalities. The one we have now is a chewer. When we leave we put remotes, etc. up where she can’t get them or she will chew them up. She chewed up a comforter in the guest room so now I make sure the door is closed.
What kind of people don’t foresee boarding a dog that is a chewer?

Dog chewed through the power cord to the air conditioner.

About 30 years ago, I had a waterbed. Waterbeds have a heating element under the mattress to keep the water from getting too cold. It connects to a dial usually mounted to the frame that allows the user to select the temperature. I remember being overly cold one night, so I drowsily reached down to the dial, only to receive a nasty shock. My dog at the time (a Sheltie) had chewed clean through the connecting cord and I had reached down and touched the bare wire. Dunno how she survived the shock.

According to Sheriff Joe’s FB post, there is a posse looking for a missing dog from the kennel.

MCSD has a six person, full time animal abuse unit, in case someone wants to know.
