Today on Father's Day, I get to reflect on the life of my life friend and dog, George. He was SHOT and KILLED around 9:00PM on June 13th, 2018. He was chasing the smell or trail of rabbit around a large area of the Fort Independence Reservation in Independence,California. This is an area where I frequently played outside with my dog and took him on walks. As I was distracted for only 1 minute by the construction of my good friend's, Aaron Dodds, house, I lost sight of George. Aaron and I were calling for George VERY LOUDLY by his name! Within only a few minutes, 2 shotgun shots boomed and were followed by the painful cry of my Dog being KILLED.
My dog George had wandered a few hundred feet from Aarons property, went 2 doors down being that no yards have a fence on this part of the reservation, and was SHOT and KILLED while I YELLED HIS NAME!
The man who committed this CRIME is a LOOSE CANNON and shot off his weapons within TENS OF FEET of NEIGHBORS/OTHER ANIMALS and within gun shot distance of homes including CHILDREN!! He took a part of me away that I can never get back and I hardly know him!
My Best Friend George was innocent and friendly to all people, children and adults, and animals alike. He lived with multiple indoor and outdoor CATS and KITTENS,OTHER DOGS, ADULTS, AND CHILDREN. He went to work with me for MONTHS GREETING PEOPLE at my Job at the MUSEUM OF WESTERN FILM HISTORY. THIS DOG HAD NO VISCIOUS OR MALICE INTENTENTIONS EVER!!! If he ever came off that way, which he very rarely did, it is because he was protecting his own or felt threatened by a being as he was trained to do!
MANY LOVED MY DOG! HE WAS A BEAUTIFUL SOUL!
I am sharing moments of his life that I cherish, including the KITTENS HE PLAYED WITH SINCE THEIR BIRTH! Alone without him, just his collar laying between where he would have been, innocently curious of these small creatures.
PLEASE REPOST IF YOU WISH TO SEE CHANGE IN ANIMAL CRUELTY!!
The time for grief is soon over.
The TIME FOR JUSTICE is NOW!!
