Here we'll be adding stories that you would like to share with Crested Owners. Feel free to share these with anyone with my blessing. Hopefully, the more people who see and hear of these tales of abuse, neglect, and un-caring the more people will fight it.

My family brought me home cradled in their arms. They cuddled me and smiled at me and said I was full of charm. They played with me and laughed with me and showered me with toys. I sure do love my family, especially the girls and boys. The children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats. They even let me sleep with them-all snuggled in the sheets. I used to go for walks, of ten several times a day. They even fought to hold the leash, I'm very proud to say. These are the things I'll not forget-a cherished memory. Because I now live in a shelter-without my family. They used to laugh and praise me when I played with that old shoe. But I didn't know the difference between the old ones and the new. The kids and I would grab a rag, for hours we would tug. So I thought I did the right thing when I chewed the bedroom rug. They said that I was out of control, and would have to live outside. This I didn't understand, although I tried and tried. The walks stopped, one by one, they said they hadn't time. I wish that I could change things, I wish I knew my crime. My life became so lonely, in the backyard, on a chain. I barked and barked, all day long, just to keep from going insane. So they brought me to the shelter, but were embarrassed to say why. They said I caused an allergy, then they each kissed me goodbye. If I'd only had some classes when I was just a little pup, then I would haven been a better dog when I was all grown up. "You only have one day left." I heard the worker say. Does that mean I have a second chance? Do I go home today????

These stories are more often than not true, or based on reality. Sadly, things like this happen every day. Only we, the dog loving community, can try to make these happenings obscelete. It may seem hard...or even impossible, but by raising the awareness of the general public..having some puppymill info on your webpages...ANYTHING can help to make a difference.

United we stand...divided, we fall.
