Well, I think that's all we're going to be getting as far as explanation and conclusion. To be honest I think I find myself more unsettled than before.
I'll be honest, I'm a little disturbed that the only thing truly spoken about is the breeders reputation, which while a valid part of this is the very least of everyone's concerns and that the only direct reference to the neglect done to him was that you saying that she did in fact take pictures of him the day he left your house.
I find myself unsatisfied but I guess that's logical, I don't think there is a way to make such a situation have a satisfying explanation or conclusion.
Teal, I truly hope you are able to acknowledge to yourself (if not us) what was done to the Fila pup in your care and that you do what needs to be done to make sure something like that never happens again.
