I know her from another forum that she has been a member of for quite some time... She never ONCE mentioned an Akita, and I've seen pictures of 12-13 dogs in her pack.

Other people remember her from other forums, and remember an Akita being mentioned. I wouldn't be surprised if she did not mention the Akita though, I mean, she only mentions any dogs to brag about new titles.

I can't recall her having mentioned him, though she may have... but I know for sure I've never seen a picture of him. I guess that's what I should have said lol

Well on a forum where most consider their dogs as companions and family members, yes, that is going to be considered extreme and negligent to leave a loved family member unattended for a day or more.

Do I know dogs who's owners go away for the weekend and the dog stays in an 8X8 kennel or tied to a tree for the weekend - with someone checking on them IF they're lucky? Yup, know tons of dogs like that. Its not illegal. Its not right either thought IMO. I wouldn't have a dog in a run personally, no matter how nice or secure the run, but that's me. My dogs are companions first, and every dog person I hang out with IRL is the same way - even the "serious" competitors.

Dude, just because she only posts on a forum to brag about her dogs titles doesn't make her a bad dog owner. That does not correlate to me at all.

She wouldn't bother mentioning him if she doesn't compete him. It's not like she posts in anyone else's threads, nor is it like she ever posts unless it's a brag with pics. Good number of us talk about the endless brag whoring, and just never respond hoping maybe she'll stop or become a more active participant in something other than her own life.

My dogs are the only family I have. But, I don't treat my dogs like children. Dogs are hardy animals, and I think people baby them far too much. I know that most people don't share that view, and that's fine.

I personally think that kennels and chain spots are more humane than leaving a dog in a shipping crate while at work, but most people don't agree with me on that one either. I am lucky to live in an area where I can have outside set ups for my dogs without having to worry about them being stolen/poisoned. My dogs get to potty whenever they want, drink whenever they want, and burn off some energy while enjoying the weather. When the weather isn't appropriate, the dogs are inside on tie outs... I avoid crates whenever possible. I would NEVER send my dogs to a boarding facility or hire a pet sitter - to me, that is FAR riskier than having them stay somewhere I know and trust with little to no contact for a day or two.

I dunno, I see it as related.

Not being a bad owner, but perhaps being a little too interested in the titles-not the dogs themselves.

Only posting pics of dogs to brag. Only posting to talk about how great she and her dogs are. I mean I like to brag too, and I do... but I dont' post pics of the scores. I post pics of things that are cute, silly etc. There are a few other people who just post their pics, but whilst I find them all annoying they dont' rub me the wrong way. They just seem like very self centred people who really like their dog.

But to ONLY post to brag or show off, and to NEVER post in anyone else's threads... That to me is so bizarre, I mean there is 'normal' forum behaviour (and 'normal is a pretty wide category online lol) And this isn't it. I can tell you things about many a chaz dog (and chazzer) that I have never met. Because their owners post more about their dogs than just to brag. I can tell you about Meg, Mia, Summer, Teagan, Victor, Frodo and more. I have never met these dogs IRL just through here. For all this persons' posts I can't tell you anythign about their dogs other than they compete in stuffs.

Its kind of hard to explain, its like meeting someone and thinking they are a little 'off'.

I love how telling it is when you look at who defends whom with the devils advocate act.

I'm pretty sure this wasn't directed at me, but just wanted to say I'm not defending or for that matter condemning this person. I just find it a little (a lot) odd for someone to get jail time just because they left a dog unattended for 24 hours. I feel like there has to be more to the story. Dogs don't die in 24 hours without food or even without water. And its not even clear if the dog did or did not have water... Its just confusing, and honestly a bit disturbing.
