How Many Sides to a Story?

Posted by P4PO on May 20, 2020 at 3:00 PM

Provided by a Guest Writer, with the Breeder's accounting of her story.

Who remembers Peg Shaw, the Chinese Crested Breeder in Nebraska? We saw the harassment posted all over the internet from a buyer, and someone who quite frankly couldn’t figure out if they were her attorney or not. Peg sold a puppy that ended up having an eye issue, and compliance with the state lemon law was not good enough f...

The Arrested Truth: The Kennel License

Posted by P4PO on February 27, 2020 at 11:10 AM

For the last few weeks, we have been following the story of Margaret Boisture of Star Mountain Kennels and Bloomfield Connecticut ACO Christine "Sparky" Sparks. Both the search warrant and the arrest warrant issued contained several statements that were less than truthful. We are going to start a series to address the lies in the warrants with actual proof of the truth, not speculation.


It took almost 3 weeks to bring charges, and one ...

When they form your public opinion...

Posted by P4PO on February 27, 2020 at 10:15 AM


The latest dog seizure case I am following with fear and sadness in my heart, is the Connecticut case of Margaret Boisture, Star Mountain Podengos. Margaret is a show enthusiast and breeder of Podengos. She was relocating from her former property to a farm she owns in a different town that had previously had a renter occupying. The facility was undergoing some renovation, but even as is and in the middle of the moving and the work on it, it is a tidy place, with he...

Who really needs facts anyway?

Posted by P4PO on January 30, 2020 at 9:05 PM

Those of us at P4PO keep a “watchlist” of people in authority of whom we should be keeping track, just in case they decide to be the letter of the law rather than follow it. Well, one of those authorities recently decided she didn’t need no stinkin’ badges. And she is one of those figures who needs a nice ego stroke when laying down the law against “evil breeders.”

This lawless law figure is town ACO in Bloomfie...

Animal Activist - Killing Zoos

A new Guest Blogger (NGB for short). NGB was nice enough to agree to help while or regular blogger is on a much-needed sabbatical.

In a stunning move, Virginia's top animal rights extremist, Michelle Welch, who moves and shakes with convicted felons, personally led an illegal raid on a beloved...

Sweet Lies!

Posted by P4PO on May 10, 2019 at 7:50 PM

No matter how normal people like to make themselves seem to the public sooner or later their true selves tend to come out. I recently introduced you to Cynthia Sweet owner of Sweet Paws rescue in Massachusetts. Looking through her media appearances and Facebook page was a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole. The very first thing that jumped out at me though...

Question Everything

Posted by P4PO on May 8, 2019 at 9:15 PM

This is a quick little blog just ask a question.

There was a raid recently in Massachusetts of Linder Pernice, who is a golden retriever breeder. Our earlier blog covered a little bit of the rescue that now has her dogs. One of the biggest claims the rescue has been making is that the sweetest dogs never saw a vet. Further proof that people who run rescues have most of the general public and the media completely fooled. Since I have seen nothing yet that leads me to believe this breeder...

The Mass Goldens

Posted by P4PO on May 8, 2019 at 10:55 AM

So, unless you live under a rock you have seen the recent raid in Massachusetts that happened to a Golden retriever breeder.

The quick version is that after 17 years the ACO In Millis Massachusetts finally fulfilled her vendetta against Linda Pernice and managed to get her dogs removed.

As this case is unfolding pretty much as I type there is not a lot of information out yet. Thankfully we have been contacted by someone who claims to have first hand knowledge of what a farce this ...

The Positive Economic Impact of Racing Greyhounds

Posted by P4PO on September 4, 2018 at 1:05 PM



Since 2007, the racing greyhound community has contributed almost 10 million dollars to the Florida school systems. If Amendment 13 passes, that is just one of the major losses for the state.

Let’s look at the impact in Palm Beach alone. Remember to multiply that amount by every track in the state—the effects would be terribly devastating.

Here are the PBKC’s economic impact and community c...
