When is a Rescue not a Rescue?
Our hearts go out to Albuquerqe schipperke affectionado Jaclyn, who this week put down a dog she had tried in vain to
'rescue' from certain death at the shelter.

The dog's name was Chi Chi. He was seven years old and though his appearance was greatly healthy, it was
obvious that he was still working out his scars/pain/triggers from years of abuse. If approached in certain ways, he would
snap and bite nearby humans/dogs from these apparent 'triggers'. Most moments that I was with him though, he was a
delightfully smart and attentive happy dog.

The rescuer and her partner have two other schips. Each Schip was attacked a time or two by Chi Chi this past month.
Jaclyn and her husband both have bruises from bites received from Chi Chi.

Jaclyn emails:
It has been a horrible
week since Chi Chi was put down Tuesday evening.
There was something terribly wrong with that poor guy.
Please see my post to the SRY2K list for all the gory
details. Diamond and Jubal are on the mend, but both
were very aggressive themselves for several days after
his departure.


At what point do you put down a dog for a behavioral reason? I have been very sad and confused about this question for
most of this week after meeting up with Chi Chi. I used to be a teacher of the Gifted and Talented. A lot of the kids were
super smart but their behaviors and inner beings/self-esteem need a lot of work. It would've been hard for me to expel a
kid whose behavior was bad.

If dogs reincarnate, I hope he comes back soon into a happier situation.
I know too, that everytime I let our THREE SCHIPPITEERS in the door and count one, two, three, I will wonder how it
would've been with a number four named Chi Chi.

Here are some thoughts and words of Don Miguel Ruiz
to get us through this the CHAOS of ELECTION WEEK...

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean.
Avoid using the word to speak against yourself
or to gossip about others. Use the power of your
word in the direction of truth and love.


DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you. What
others say and do is a projection of their own
reality, their own dream. When you are immune
to the opinions and actions of others, you won't
be the victim of needless suffering.


DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find the courage to ask questions and to express
what you really want. Communicate with others
as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings,
sadness, and drama. With just this one agree-
ment, you can completely transform your life.


ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Your best is going to change from moment to
moment; it will be different when you are
healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circum-
stance, simply do your best, and you will avoid
self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
