The other side of the "puppy mill" story

In the interest of being fair and hearing both sides of the story, here are e-mails I have received from the woman accused of running the so-called “puppy mill”. This is what she had to say:

“Hello, I know what you are thinking about me and you are so wrong. I have the pictures of the puppies and the cages. I am willing to let you come and talk to me. These puppies were VERY well taking care of. They were wormed every 2 weeks. In clean cages were they were not walking in the feces and urine. They had trays under each and every cage so they didn’t walk in that. They were cleaned 2-3 times a day. The cage was a 3 stack cage that is still here. If you would like to see it before it leaves here. I could tell you more on this, but I would like to talk to you in person if that is posibale. The cages are loaded and ready to go. But I would like for someone who thinks I am a bad people to see that I am NOT! I have sold puppies to your family as well. Plz come here and let me talk to you in person. I do have a 6 year old son that everyone needs to think about.”

…and…

“But if you look a the picture one the front page of the paper. You will see that that puppy was very healthy. They were not in cages all the time. When the women that came here they were let out and playing every where. I was not doing it to make money, I did it because I love dogs. I would never hurt a animal in a million years. They took 2 yorkie puppies that they said were staying here. 1 was my sons. They were just as healthy as the rest. I did not treat any any different. I will fight this and WIN. I have vet bills and shot records for all my dog. I can call my vet at anytime day or night. I have took dogs to him after 9-10:00 at night. I know he will stand by me. He told people about my dogs and how healty they were.”

…and…

“And I wanted to let you know that the dogs outside did have a heater out there and boxes they could go into with dog doors. There food was but in the boxes so the birds would not eat it. and they all eat purina dog and puppy food. I did not buy cheat dog food that was not good for them. But there was heat in there for them. The poodle did look bad. But I could not shave him down in the winter or he would freeze to death. I shave all my dog down 3 times a summer. I am not a bad person.”

…and…

“And I did have barry watson out here last year will someone turned me in and he said everything was ok. And I call the human soc. and told them they could come and look at me dog. But they DIDN”T do it. I tried to get a kennell licence and the trustee said i didn’t need one. That they stp that. No one knows my side just the women that that think they know it all. And as far as them being trained for this kind of thing. They are Not. You do not go though any training to work with these people. Just have to think they know it all.”

That sure puts a different spin on things, huh?

I think they should name a street after me. =)

I guess i am the oddball here because i love the way the new site looks and it is much easier to get around on it :)

I am not too crazy about the new site myself but I will go along with whatever Jeremy feels is best for this site. As far as the name game goes, HELL no! I am so tired of the supposedly "big names" thinking they deserve credit for everything. What have the Rameys, Tanksleys or Powells ever done for Mitchell???? Nada...unlike Terry Cole who came from this little shit hole and made it big in the Pro League. Now, that is deserving of being honored!

If they do then they will be bombarded with naming streets after the Powell's, Tanksley's and then you will have the likes of Shannon Payton wanting a ballfield named after himself!!hahaha

Don't care for the new site, what was wrong with the way it was? How does everybody on here feel about naming a street after the Ramey's?

@ savethedogs are you the one that "save" the puppy and got all this going?

I happen to be the first person she called after the HS called. She needed my advice. My advice was talk to your lawyer.

@ha ha ha Well still you are just as bad and i am not going to waste my time responding to you so ghoodbye. @Wrong Facts don't know where you are getting your info from but mine came from a very reliable source

Wrong. If I were, I'd already have a lawyer.

Fact is she called the HS Thursday to see how the dogs were doing. They called her back Friday and told her that they had talked to Jim Richardson and someone else (my memory fails me occasionally) and that she could have her 2 personal dogs back if she'd sign the others over. She told them she didn't know and would get back to them and let them know. As of 5:30 today, she hasn't called back.

Let me guess ha ha ha is laughingoutloud from the tmnews comments right

Who the F would risk going to jail for stealing dogs back just to have a breeding pair? If she wanted a breeding pair, she'd get them legally. Sounds to me like you just like stirring up trouble. . .wait a minute, aren't you the one I was talking about in my last comment?

Looks like to me it was probably some of her friends or family trying to get a breeding pair back for her so she could start up another puppy mill just so she could get turned in again!

ha ha ha

Must have been those sneaky people who lied to her to get the pictures in the first place. Once you break the law it's hard to stop I guess.

The animal shelter would have them neutered and spade before they let them take them. That way they could not be used to breed.

Yeah kind of funny Robin calls the shelter telling them that she will sign over all the dogs if she can have back one male and one female yorkie and when they tell her no then 2 are stolen imagine that

And who really cares EXCEPT YOU that it IS Mitchell--because if it was BEDFORD, the kids that live in that area would go to Bedford schools and not Mitchell--Dip shit--I was ONLY asking WHY the MPD wasnt called in to help since it IS MITCHELL ?!?!?!.....unquote..... yeah ok you were never arguing that it was actually in mitchell. ummmmmmm and as for MY hatefull remarks i think i called you a hardhead. i'm sorry too. sure am glad i didn't call you fuckface, dip shit, and retard like you did me. whatever....oh yeah and you so bravely post as jl instead of anonymous coward. you are the way better person....please find it in your big ole heart to forgive me

It was a "drug bust", not a puppy mill. There was a write-up in the Times-Mail about it. -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

Can some one please share this article with me on the second puppy mill bust you're referring to on bryantsville rd?

The fact of the matter is Jeremy is correct BPD and LC have worked together in the past and do it well. Who cares if MPD was involved or not. The point is another big time dealer is off the street and hopefully he will lead them to more. Mitchell has been over run with drugs for long enough. It is time to crack down on these dealers and buyers. We have had to many kids around here dying of over dose and I want it stopped. I think after Mayor Terrell gets all his kinks worked out and they get MPD built up they will be involved more. Right now MPD is just a joke to other towns.

Since the arrest aka bust happened in Bryantsville the county police have the major jurisdiction. MPD nor BPD have any jurisdiction there unless they are asked to assist the County Police. The only other agencies that would have jurisdiction are the State Police or Conservation Officers. Case closed.

"Officially", neither BPD nor MPD have jurisdiction in the county. However, they *are* permitted to assist other agencies when requested. (Likewise, an off-duty city officer can detain you in another city. They are granted their powers by the state and those powers extend throughout the state, as I'm told.) My assumption would be that BPD was asked to assist because 1) of the existing relationship between LCSD and BPD and 2) they had more officers available to provide assistance. -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

To put things straight--here is my ORIGINAL post---just a simple question that didnt need smart ass replys from anyone that signs with his/her true colors--(anonymous coward)--- This has nothing to do with the puppy mill situation but I have no clue how to make a new post without replying to one. So, here goes, why were the BPD working with the county on a drug bust that is in Mitchell?? Dont get me wrong, I think it is great that they are working together, but why werent the MPD working on this also?? (What I didnt mean was that it was actually IN Mitchell, but more Mitchell then Bedford, hence the school district).None of this warranted you A.C. to come on here and reply with hateful remarks. I will be the bigger person and apologize for what I have said wrong. Wouldn't MPD have more jurisdiction than the BPD??

Maybe so, but at least I was smart enough to move far away from the depths of hell down there! Hopefully I will be able to say the same for the rest of my "screwed up" family soon.

thanks for making my point. i don't see how you figure we were both wrong but we'll save that for another argument at another time lmao

Ok you two, play good together. Both of you are right, and your both wrong (damn your good) it is not Bedford, it is south of the river. It is not Mitchell, because...it's Bryantsville, if it were Mitchell it would have been called Mitchell. Yes kids from that area are in the Mitchell school district, but we do not call Huron Mitchell do we?(kids from Huron go to Mitchell too) The MPD might have been invited to play with the big boys if they needed them. Who could blame the county for going to BPD, more officers...and their department is not in as much turmoil as MPD is right now. However, I have enjoyed watching the two of you stand your ground and argue with eachother...but it's still Bryantsville and not Bedford or Mitchell. Close to Mitchell...yes, close to Bedford....yes it's just Lawrence county. Lets move on, thanks

ok honey. boy you really straightend me out. (rolls eyes) maybe your dad/boyfriend/husband can explain it to you. you wanted to know why mpd didn't help with a drug bust in mitchell. it was not in the city limits of mitchell. you got me on the mitchell address. you win. the mitchell address only tells us the mitchell post office delivers his mail. this is obviously way over your little head and i was only trying to help you understand why the awesome mpd wasn't called. IT'S BEFUCKINGCAUSE IT WASN'T IN MITCHELL! this will really twist your pretty lil head. if you live on u.s. 50 west. you will have a bedford phone number, a mitchell address, and your kids went to school in huron when huron school was open. so do you call the huron police? i'm done now....please call me more names....it turns me on!

its not "in" f**king mitchell hardhead. its IN the county. obviously the COUNTY police who are in charge of the COUNTY needed assitance of several officers. i'm sure if bedford couldn't provide enough mitchell would have been asked. wtf does the school districts have to do with the price of beans?

Yea, I bet she will end up in jail as well. It's really sad for the kids...they spend more time with their Great Grandmother than anyone already...she might as well have custody of them. As for the buyers, if he won't talk he'll be in jail for quite some time with those charges. My brother had minor charges by contrast and because he wouldn't talk he got locked up for a harsh punishment for a much less drug-related crime. Yay Lawrence County!

Gossiping within the family, NEVER !!!hahaha It could be that she WILL be arrested, Im sure the investigation is NOT over and hopefully there will be many, many more arrests come out of this. Would be really hard to believe this guy had all that and was working alone, besides he had "buyers".

Ummm, OK...I dont recall saying they put house addresses in a hat and just picked one out!!! I also do NOT recall saying anything about NOT investigating it...where are you getting your info Flex????? RETARD!!!!

I also was very surprised his girlfriend had not been arrested. She is a cousin of mine and I had heard originally a rumor from my family that they had both been arrested and the kids had been taken by child protective services. I'm assuming that story was false...good ole Mitchell gossiping.

Times_mail states,"the warrants were served at the Bryantsville Road home of Josh Brazzell, 23 of MITCHELL" Bryantsville is IN Mitchell school district so it IS Mitchell. Was just wondering WHY MPD wasnt a part of it and BPD was even though the county and BPD are working together.

I told you so
I told you so

As this website show's anyone can make up a story!!If there is so much evidence against Officer Phelix SHOW ME THE PROOF!!!!!!!There have been alot of stories about the webmaster,Butch Chastain and ex chief of Police on here but where is the proof.If they were doing all that they have been accused of something should be done.Before the election there was talk of charges that was going to be brought up on Hardman but NO PROOF. So you should not listen to all the stories.

You DONT have to have a detective to have a drug bust, Fat-Flex!!!

Detective Phelix, lmao. He probably purchased drugs off that guy. I've heard plenty of stories to not think otherwise.

we never reall did have a "detective" he just kinda goes by that alot

I told you so

I can answer that one for you,The new mayor in all his wisdom chose not to keep a detective on payroll so if we dont have a detective! Who are they going to send? All of our officers were out walking the streets knocking on doors getting to know all the law biding people of Mitchell while the real police officers were out getting the guy dealing the drugs.WAY TO GO DANNY!!!!
