I have been following Honey's threads and those who have been involved should be so so proud. You did everything you could to give her a chance and shown how important it is to place some dogs in a foster home environment.

I know myself, the behaviour displayed by some in kennels is far removed from the reality in a home. Such a shame her scars were just too much.

Sleep tight Honey wub.gif hug.gif

I think you've said it all Riotous-uk.

You all gave her your best but sadly it wasn't to be.

Be at peace now and run free , Honey

Bless you for trying, Jo

Thanks everyone for trying so hard.

What more can one say - it was all done for Honey but probably too late.

rip dear girl

Jo@thewilderness
Thank you for all the kind words.

I'll not be put off fostering, just shows me how it gives a dog a good chance. OH has been fantastic too - and all credit to him for allowing me to try, and supporting all the way, knowing it may not work. And my own doggies - you have bene perfect so I forgive you for not doing down on command ev ery time!

Honey, you were a beautiful girl and I so wish we could have done things differently for you. I know you are at peace now and that the world can again be a beautiful place.

And thanks to everyone who has phoned too. But can you leave me alone now to get in the bath!

So sad hug.gif

Can't add anything else except respect to all involved in giving her a chance and especially Jo.

Not sure if the wounds you mention are physical or emotional - I'm guessing both. Hope they heal soon. hug.gif

You gave a terribly scared, damaged and traumatised, dog her last happy, carefree and loved days . She left this Earth trusting two people, knowing what it was to be cared for in a safe environment. You and others showed her patience and kindness . You did everything you possible could and more. Thank you .

Huge hug.gif to Jo, I KNOW how hard you tried for Honey, how YOU stepped in when others couldn`t, "me included".

Jo you did ALL you could and no reproaches, Honeys scars were TOO DEEP, not of youir making and it was the right decission to end her suffering, not all scars are visible.

I THANK you for being my friend and picking up the phone today to talk, I hope I helped in a small way, it was my pleasure to hold your hand, any time.


RIP Honey, I have asked Lady to look out for you and help you at the bridge. I hope you rest easy PRETTY GiIRL.

If ever there was a time for believing in karma it is now -

- for those who moved heaven and earth to help Honey

- for those who made her "unreachable"

I fervently hope you reap what you sow.

May we all hold our rescue dogs close tonight safe in the knowledge that Honey now runs as free as any of them.

Oh no sad.gif

Whilst I do believe no dog is aggressive without reason, and that there is a trigger there somewhere (not always a warning, some people very effectively train warnings out of dogs and Id bet this happened to Honey, as well as a lot more in the past), sometimes that trigger is going to be a thing you cannot possibly find or see in a time frame that doesnt cause the dog more suffering and trauma.

We can't know what 'ghosts' live in some dogs heads, and whilst I'm sure Honey had her reasons, I think it is admirable that a sensible person has assessed her, decided its going to be too long and too painful a process to sort those out for her (months or years of unpredictability, for dog and humans), and to let her go now.

Honestly - I wish more people had the courage that those involved with Honey have shown.

Run Free at the bridge Honey.

So sorry Jo hug.gif

well done for given her a chance and for being brave enough to face up to her problems

i live with a brain damaged GSD who's problems sound very similar to Honeys and we manage to live around her however = had i recieved her as a rescue / foster i would have made the same choice as you (Mishka came to us as a tiny pup so we have developed a good bond with her which makes dealing with her rage moments just about manangeable)

i have it written at the solicitors that should anything happen to me then she too will have to come with me to the bridge as wihtout me she is not safe and the same goes for Honey

Loving a dog means facing up to their problems as much as it means trying to give them another chance

You have my great respect for trying there are so many out there that would not have given her a second thought

She can now run free without the stress and anger her life gave her angel.gif

may those who did this to her rot and lets hope karma takes its course

so sorry hug.gif

Jo@thewilderness
I've been to see Kestla and her beautiful girls today with my little gang and we talked about Honey.

She too has had a dog that has been so abused that she felt the demons she was facing were too much. Honey was that dog for me. When I asked my Dad to come out and see her on Thursday he asked me if this was such a damaged dog that I didn't think it could be fixed. I replied, I didn;t think she would ever be able to cope in a home environment as that is where all the abuse had happened. I'd have been able to contain her, but would Honey have wanted that - no walks, no fun, no love?

I'm so sad about Honey - she was a beautiful girl who was just too damaged - but I really do feel that she is in a better place.

Cody has done much more than I ever could for this girl - she wanted to give her one more chance when others said give up. And she found a way despite the odds.

My bites are healing but my heart takes longer.

Rest easy Honey - I'll always remember you wub.gif
