William James
I am trying to find relatives of Lina Adele Thornton Peppers - Does this name sound like it could be William's Mother?
Thank You so much Carolyn

Dear Darlene,
Only a few days have passed and it seams like a lifetime. I didn't want my son, my sister, even my brothers. I wanted my Find a Grave family. I wanted Linda's constant hope, I wanted Susie's ability to make anything seem funny, I wanted Pixie's "get up and move on" encouragement, and I wanted Colleens wisdom and comfort.

I wanted all of my Find a Grave family. Most of the time you are more real to me than the people standing next to me. I love my flesh and blood family but my cyber family (my Find A Grave family) you all mean so much to me, some days it what gets me through the day.

So, I got bit a few times, scratched, and other areas bruised up by jaws that bit but did not pierce the skin through clothing, don't ask me how that happened. It got cold and windy here and I put on jeans and a fake leather jacket. I was dressed. Normally I would have had on a skirt and tank top. I am so glad it got cold down here. I really was lucky. I just came off Plavix, I would have had some real problems if I had taken it that morning.

About pit bulls. I have been attacked 3 times now as I was walking my dog, the other times I was with Ron, there were two of us. This time I was alone and it was by far the worst. I held Bella up as high as I could and spread my feet and pushed hard into the sidewalk. I could not kick them or hit them, if they got me off balance and down on the ground I would have been in more trouble.

The guy who had the gun, who drove up and made the decision to help, I will be grateful to him forever. I saw he had a gun. I kept screaming for him to shoot the dogs and he took what felt like forever. I later asked him why so long? He said, I might have shot you "You were in the middle of that". In retrospect I am glad he took his time and aim.

There are no bad dogs. I found out these two pit bulls lived in a 10 by 10 fenced kennel. That sometimes they had food and water and sometimes not. That no matter how hot and miserable the weather they only had a tarp on one end to crawl under. That the owner once in awhile came out with a hose and hosed the crap in that cage with out ever taking the dogs out of the kennel.

The dog that is dead paid the ultimate price, it's dead. I know in my heart that animal, talked to God and said, "take me home or get me out of here, please God!"

The other a female, and I want her to live. I might have to fight for this. I want this dog to go to a pit bull sanctuary. Somewhere it will never be around children and only be with people who know how to handle her. She has never lived any life but misery and there has been no kindness shown to her. It's no wonder that when they got out they became aggressive, it's all they knew.

I want the owners punished not the dog. I want them never to be able to own a pet again (any pet, cat, dog, bird, fish.)

A vet has her right now and she is under observation for rabies and distemper, she has no vaccination records.

The other dog is negative for rabies so I am sure the female dog being held does not have it, they were kennel mates. I can only imagine the grief she is feeling as she spends the first days of her life alone with out her kennel mate. They had been in that cage alone together for a long time.

The only good that can come of this is that this dog will get a second chance away from bad people, that someone who takes on abused pit bulls will take her and show her that humans can be kind and loving and that even a pit bull who bites and scratches and has lost it's way, will get another chance. We all deserve a second chance.

Thank you for your prayers and your kindness to me, for caring and for being there at the darkest hours in my life, not just this time but three and a half years ago when I lost my best friend, my Mom. Your kind wishes and prayers are over whelming and I am so grateful.

As Melanie in Gone With The Wind said...."This is not the first time you have come between me and disaster."

Your prayers are with me. I can feel them.
