FrEYEday SkEYEday FREE All

Khyra's Mom Again Meet Gigi
Doesn't she look sooooo dangerous?

WELL, Broward County thinks she is - actually, I meant to include Gigi on my bit about Brandie on Thursday - but I got a brain khramp - as Khyra would paw - and forgot to do so -

After I shared Khyra's Thursday post with the members of Save Brandie, a member of that group sent me a message:

Please also mention Gigi, she is in the same situation as Brandi> She is a 9 year old lab/mix so sweet and gentle. Her Facebook page is Save Gigi.

I replied I had meant to BUT would mention her 'here' today since I usually don't update Khyra's Blog throughout the day. She then sent me this message:

Thank you so much......this is a horrible situation. I do not know either family but I did go to the rally at animal contral and got to meet Gigi, what a sweet old lady. My heart breaks for them. The ordinance needs to be changed! The animals need their voices my saying goes

"Paws can't dial 911"

How true - Paws can't dial 911

Here are two links for some background material on Gigi - one and two - it is just wrong

I really enjoyed the comments left on Thurday relating to Brandie - and no apologises are ever needed about soapboxing - that is what makes The Blog Arena so awesome!

We do feel that Khyra's Pal Misty pawed it best:

Stupid humans, too many dangerous breeds of humans are around.

Misty the alpha Poodle

Happy Friday to you too.

Poor Gigi.

Nubbin' Tails said...

It breaks my heart when animal's pay the price for human stupidity. Being large dog people we have to be very very careful with our "kids". At 100+ lbs my 2 males are pretty intimidating. I know that my dogs are very much capable of the pack mentality so we have to ensure we are on guard. We cross streets to avoid other dogs and kids. But sometimes you can't help it if someone else decides they are sure they know how your pet will respond. We just do our best to be responsible and protect both our "kids" and others.

I hope GiGi gets the second chance she deserves!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my goodness - I just can't believe how Merdie can sit/lie with her legs like that!!!! She must be a triple jointed doggie! :-)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Khyra - I just saw about your contest! I'm going to try and get my human to do a video of me catching treats - although I have to say, I'm pretty useless! heee! hee!

Jan said...

We would like to see some laws concerning Breed Specific Legislators.

Samantha said...

Oh my... poor Gigi dear. No we can't paw 911 - good point! And Merdie: how do you do that frog leg doga thingy anyway???? I've tried and tried and my hips just won't open up like that - so cool! And with tail moving! Wow! Great Friday sky pics and birdie learning photos! Happy Weekend!
Hugs xoxoxoxo
Sammie and pack

Teddy Bear said...

That is terrible news about Gigi.:( We hope she can win the next appeal. Merdie's comfoy looks are pawesome! And those sky pics...your Mom is very talented!:)

Lorenza said...

I have my paws crossed for them!
I love to see Merdie in her frog pose!
Happy Friday!
Kisses and hugs

Life With Dogs said...

Merdie is double jointed? Very cool!

Gigi needs a break. Hopefully word of mouth will be her best friend...

Keisha said...

O hai. The flowers are pretty. :)

Sally said...

I like the snoffing picture best. Also the pictures of Merdie sitting on the floor. Mom is still laughing.
Happy Friday too.

Hi Khyra,
Oh my! Khousin Merdie looks so funny lying down like that! How does she do it? I don't think I could do it!
Good luck with Gigi she looks like a lovely doggie Elder :0)

your pal,

Mr Koda MD said...

Perhaps some breeds of humans should be banned - like pitbulls in some places - all the pitties I have met have been fun & games! Not a bad bone I could see.

Have an excellent weekend girls!

Karen Jo said...

Poor Gigi. I hope she wins her next appeal. It is just so wrong to put down a leashed dog who reacts to an unleashed dog running up and yapping. Merdie, how on Earth do you manage to sit like that?

Aksharaa said...

Dear Khyra,
we did go and vote for against that stupid ruling. but mummy forgot to leave a comment on your page! thanks so much for letting everyone know about what is going on. like you said..We cannot dial for help.
We really really hope all the dogs on death row are let off and get reunited with their family.
can't we all ask BO (on his blog) to put in a word directly to the president?
do you think it will work?

our heart goes out to our canine friends out there, they must be so scared!

it is so sad that big dawgs are always misunderstood.
Buddy n Ginger

Martha and Bailey said...

Our Harry used to sit like Merdie - we were always worried someone would accidentally stand on a paw!
Strange position!!!
Cute pics as always. We have to go read about Gigi - we felt angry yesterday and as you say animals need to have their voice heard.

Hahahahahaha!! Hello puppy-froggie! Those photos are priceless!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Hi Khyra and Merdie,

We LOVE yoor pics today. And larfed at Merdie's froggy pose!

Never was truer words said, there are WAY too many: Stupid humans, too many dangerous breeds of humans are around.

We hate what they do to beautiful animals. We wish Misty love and luck.

Teal'c said...

Hi, it's Teal'c! Thanks for stopping by at my bloggie. You got beautiful sky-pictures as well.

And I wanted to say that me and my hoomans agree: most of the hoomans are stupid and dangerous but there is nothing we can use against them :( It is a cruel and unfair world! :(

Slobbers Teal'c

The Thundering Herd said...

Khyra - did you get a nose print on the camera with that one picture?

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Merdie looks too comfortable therre. How does she make her legs do that?? We need to catch up on your bloggie K.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We completely agree about the "too many dangerous breeds of human." What an awful situation.

So many great photos of you two lovely girls!


Stella said...

Every state should have a Dog Ombudsman who could listen to the stories, meet the animals, talk to people and make an intelligent, educated decision about their lives.

(om·buds·man (¼m“b¾dz”m…n, -b…dz-, -b‹dz”-) n. 1. A person who investigates complaints, reports findings, and mediates fair settlements, especially between aggrieved parties such as consumers or students and an institution, an organization, or a company. 2. A government official, especially in Scandinavian countries, who investigates citizens' complaints against the government or its functionaries. --

We have them for people in nursing homes, or youngsters in the court system. Those who are not much listened to!

Jo, Stella's Mom

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

houndstooth said...

Poor Gigi! Just when you think you've seen the level of stupidity get as low as you think possible, there's a new surprise!


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

There's some amazing skysnots this week! I found a teddy bear and I loved the rainbow you sent!

I find Merdie's hip flexability amazing, too!

Broward county is a tuff place for dogs and the people who love them. I hope both dogs (and I'm sure there are others) will be ok.

Frankie Furter said...

I didn't realize you were having a contest... sounds like fun.
I love your Friday posts.

Ricky the Sheltie said...

FrEYEday skEYEday FREE All is right!!!! Let Brandie and Gigi go free!!!!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That is horrible about Gigi. What is it about that place Broward or Coward County? They want to kill all of the dogs? I'm glad we don't live there. I sure hope Brandi and Gigi get out of there without having their lives taken away. Stupid people and stupid laws equals a very stupid place. I love Merdie's froggie sit. I laugh when I see it!!! Khyra is looking good as usual! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly


Woof Khyra and Merdie,

Mom agrees, some humans are stupid, very stupid. She says that's why she love us so much. Anyway, we like Merdie's Frog-Dog pose. Hope all is well.

KB said...

Very sad about Gigi. Oh my.

I agree with others. When you own a large dog, the person needs to make sure to keep the dog under control around tiny dogs. We had one dog, years ago, who seemed to think that toy breeds were squirrels. We held him tightly around them.

That Merdie sure chooses a funny froggy position for lying down! Love the photos!

Melissa and Emmitt said...

happy friday k & p

thank you for sharing about gigi.

Remington said...

Great post! Happy Friday, my friend!

Jacqueline said...

Something really needs to be done about Florida and what's with Broward County's 1 strike policy?...Who is pushing this political agenda anyway?...I don't understand this, but it's very true=Gigi and Brandi are scapegoats for human stupidity...I'm so sorry for them and their families...Love Merdie's froggy pose!...kisses beautiful girls...Happy Friday friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Ms. ~K said...

The sadness in the world is overwhelming sometimes...

Hey Merdie, thanks for the smiles with your froggie doggie pose!
Khyra, I see woo even when your eyes are closed, silly girl!


Dory and the Mama said...

Thanks so much for sharing Gigi with us Khyra!!!

Smileys & Snuggles!

PeeS...Thanks for sharing Merdie the Frog too!!

bbes tribe said...

Gigi looks like a sweetheart. We hope she finds her special people to love her.. Our mom says "there are so many people out there with animals that shouldn't have them or have kids" Both can suffer terribly. It breaks all our hearts too. It is like the stories are never ending. We had some hoarders on the news here yesterday & we have a new baby named Honey who is a Chimix. So many problems with her & trying to see what if anything can be done to help her.

Paws crossed for all the furiends needing help!!

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Let's all keep our paws crossed for Gigi and Brandie. Something really needs to change about this law. You don't see that those who abused animals get put down, do you? NO!
Oh Merdie Merdie Merdie, that froggy pawsition is just pawsome!
Khyra, you are as beautiful as ever!

Sam & June

AFSS said...

Our paws are crossed for Gigi and Brandie. We are purring they will be home with their families soon.

Junior and Orion said...

Oh, those woofies don't look mean at all to us! It's the people that are being mean! We will do what we can to help!

We love your cute face pictures!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Poor Gigi! :( I am crossing my paws for her!

How does Merdie lay like that? My legs don't go in those directions! :)

We always love your pictures! :)


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Merdie's froggie doggie cracks me up!!


Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Ahhh, poor Gigi!! She deserves a fabulous life!!

Those picutres of Merdie are too funny!!

Woofs and Kisses!

brooke said...

I love how Merdie sits!

BeadedTail said...

We're sorry to hear about Gigi too. The situations make us so sad.

Merdie on the other hand, you make us smile when you lay like that! And Khyra, we always love to see your beautiful face too!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We are purring for Gigi - it is just a terrible ridiculous situation for her to be stuck in.

And we love the pics today Khyra! We hope you all have a great weekend!

Sagira said...

Makes me upset that things are not better for the pups. :(

Merdie is laying funny...made me smile. Gotta love Merdie.

3 doxies said...

I hope their situations work out in their favor. I'm just not sure what to think of people these days. I tend to walk my dogs at my daughter's school while the students are in class because I'm paranoid about attacks matter who the attacker or aggressor, my dogs or another dog.
I am so going to miss Merdi and how she sits.

Sheila and Bob said...

All we can say about Brandi & Gigi is "no common sense is used".
We hope the owners will prevail and have this terrible decesion quashed.

Benny and Lily said...

You guys are so cute. But we NOSE who the cutest is of them all. Happee Friday

Suka said...

hey Khyra and Froggie Merdie,

Merdie, you are just the cutest!

Khyra, you look lovely standing next to the pretty, colorful flowers!

I don't know what to paw about the extremely sad stories of Brandie and Gigi. It is not only wrong, but heartbreaking. My heart goes out to the owners of the two little dogs that were killed, but my heart also goes out to Brandie and Gigi. Nothing is black and white, there are two sides to every story. The dogs deserve a second chance - killing them should not be an option. Ever. It seems humans today are just too quick to kill an animal. I love Stella's idea about an animal Ombudsman. Paws crossed that Brandie and Gigi get another chance.


Anonymous said...

Well, hello Gigi! Dear Khyra, please tell your mom that we just figured out about your khontest and that we'll try to figure out a way to pawticipate if we khan. We are always rooting for you and loved reading the description of how the transports first begun.
Woooooof, for Khyra and the mommy. (BOL on Merdie's sitting manners)

Ginger Jasper said...

There are some people who should never be let near animals or children. Makes my blood boil. I just hate to hear the awful stories.

Love Merdies frog pose and your expressions are gorgeous.. Hugs GJ xx

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Generalizing about humans is called bigotry; about dogs...protecting the public.

Merdie is quite the contortionist but she looks comfy.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Poor Gigi - paws crossed for good news for her and Brandie.

Merdie, you make us laugh with those froglegs - too funny, girl.

MFT, we love your eyes:)

Happy weekend.

Hi Khyra,
It is getting hot!!! You can tell that when you look at Merdie's pictures!!! She is so cute laying there with her legs out stretched!!!!

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Gigi. Misty was right.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Its so heart breaking to now hear about Gigi
It is not the doggies faults,,, it is the humans, and I agree about the quote statement "Never was truer words said, there are WAY too many: Stupid humans, too many dangerous breeds of humans are around."
We should make bumper stickers that say that.
Thank you for spreading the word.
thank you for the sky pics

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Oh yeah, Gigi is clearly the sort of dog who would bite a man in Reno just to watch him die. Not.

dewdana said...

So sorry about Gigi and Brandie. As an owner it is your responsibility to keep your dog safe by keeping it on a leash. those little doggies were victims of irresponsible owners. An unleashed dog is absolutely perceived as a threat to a leashed dog. Moose was bitten when he was off leash (in an off leash dog park) and approached a leashed dog. I was angry at that owner (who obviously knew what his dog was capable of since one of his dogs was on a leash and one was not yet he did nothing to warn me) but I learned a big lesson in dog ownership that day and will never let Moose be in that situation again- that was my fault, I failed to keep him safe from that jackass.
I also suspect that this situation was judged due to the size difference of the dogs. Big dogs are always blamed. If I wanted to be extra cynical I would even wonder if the fact that black dogs are perceived as more menacing and that Huskies are wolf like did not subconsciously contribute to their being judged as dangerous...
I am unfortunatley not optimistic that this verdict will change but Gigi is lucky her owner is a lawyer! Hopefully Brandie will fare better. Paws crossed!

Hi, Khyra -

Mama read the story about Gigi. This is the stuff that makes her so mad.

Merdie looks so funny laying like that. She reminds us of Kaci and her "frog" legs.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
