I believe I saw Debbie post a link for donations and I came straight to the forum confused as to why. Can't believe this has happened again!!! I have no doubt it's the same person/people and I definitely hope they are caught and prosecuted this time around.

My fingers and crossed and my prayers go out to the Tarheel pack. They have shown they were fighters once and positive they will pull through again. I hope I can donate soon!

NOOOOO NOT AGAIN....

I'm so shocked I can't find the words to express my feelings. I'm sending healing thoughts and best wishes to the Tarheel pack.

As for the.... evil sick person who did this... death would be to good for him.

Just off the phone with the vet again: Sequoia is likely to go home today, her tests are negative. Kana and Jaeger need another test but are good so far. Blaze has been vomitting/ bad kidney values but they don't want to give me any definate... answers on him yet. the baby, Nusia, has not urinated at all...this is new info to us. I'm very sad...and this does not look good. For those asking about dialysis: it is peritoneal dialysis for animals and only done in two areas of the country period...NY and Fla. No other vets feel comfortable or trained enough for this on an animal since it's so highly specialized...so no other options there.

That's terrible to hear, I hope Blaze and Nusia can pull through!
I'm happy to hear that Sequoia can be released soon, though!

Since it's obvious now that the culprit's a persistend offender, maybe it would be a good idea to train the dogs to -not- eat from new things that appear in the backyard (thought I guess fish is maybe too tempting for dogs to not pick it up), may it be a bowl with delicious stuff inside or a steak or anything.

I can't help the tears when I think of Nusia and Blaze. How anyone could be so cruel is just beyond my comprehension. I'm glad that Sequoia, Jaeger and Kana are doing ok, but it breaks my heart that two of your beautiful pack are still suffering :( .

I donated yesterday and have posted the link on Facebook, as well as putting an ad on Kijiji (online classifieds). I'm not active on Twitter, but do have an account, so I'll post the link there as well.

I'm so sorry that you have to go through this yet again. My thoughts and prayers remain with you.

I posted the Chipin link on another forum I am apart of, I'll probably post on two more and share on Facebook as well.

Any status on the dogs?

I just got home with Jaeger, Kana, and Sequoia. We are so happy they got to come home. The Antifreeze is cleared out of their system with no ill side effects.
Unfortunately, Blaze and Nusia are still being treated. I had the chance to interact with both of them while at the vet today and Blaze is a trooper. He would never let you know he is sick and was overly excited to see me and lick the heck out of my face. Nusia was as sweet and cuddly as could be. Blaze will be getting a Central line put in to give him more fluids. Nusia's is still getting fluids as well to flush her kindeys.

Thas is all I have for now. Keep praying for Blaze and Nusia.

Donations are coming in and we are at $2,803, thanks to all that have contributed to this no matter how small. The http://www.tamaskan-aid.com website has had 600+ visitors in 2 days. With 62 donations so far that is around 10% of people visiting the site donating to the fund. Its an amazing feat and a real testament to the community. Please spread the word and website link to all that you can, email friends, post on websites that are reporting the poisoning, and ask friends and family to do the same. We just need the link to be picked up by the right person/group/website which will help the cause to become viral and then we should reach the target required to help John and family meet these incredibly high vets fee's. Ive got the website on a very powerful server so it will be able to handle 10's of thousands of hits a day which i'm not expecting, but it will cope if it does.

Again, thanks to all of you for all your help so far and ongoing support.

WOW. That IS amazing... How much do we need to raise? From the numbers I've seen so far, I'm thinking close to 50k (that's factoring in 20k per dog for dialysis - hopefully they will pull through and not need it) to cover all vet costs thus far...?

Do we have a facebook page dedicated to this incident that we could post around? I think that will help people spread the news better than sharing a link on their FB page.

If we do have a FB page for this, please link me and I'll share it on my wall. Thanks!

$2958 as of right now in just a short time. That's amazing! Blaze and Nusia, I pray for the two innocent souls to hang in there just a little longer and pretty soon the treatment will begin. Though I'm still hoping that the vet can help flush those nasty things out of the kidney so that they can heal quickly and don't have to go through that expensive treatment. Keep sharing the link everyone!

We sent an e-mail today to a syndicated morning radio show we listen to in hopes that they publicize the story and get the word out. We'll see what happens.

Somebody or a couple people came into our backyard, probably after dark and while the dogs were inside, and placed a large bowl of fish laced with Antifreeze in an intentional act to kill the Tarheel dogs. All dogs are in Intensive care and miraclasly made it through the night with signs of improvement.

Kana was by far the most affected, Kana is from the Taheel Litter 2009 - she is Tuffy's sister.
Image

Next is Blaze and appears to be doing well, Blaze is from an Alba litter - he is Tuffy's father.
Image

Jaeger is doing well and Jaeger comes from the Muensterland Litter. He will be two this summer.
Image

Last but not least Sequoia (Blustag Yodel) Sequoia is just a puppy, not even 6 months old yet. Sequoia comes from Lynn at Blustag.
Image

The vet seemed very positive with all of the dogs progress, but they are far from being out of trouble. Antifreeze is a very nasty poison and can have long term affects on surviving dogs.
I will keep every updated on the forum as we get news, we will pass it on.
I am so upset to hear about this. Some people are just scum for hurting animals. I had a problem with a neighbor who threw rocks at my dog when it was in the backyard barking. Some people are just sick.

P.S. Kana is gorgeous, she is so "wolfy" looking. I want a Tam with his/her exact look and gorgeous eyes.

I've shared the link all over facebook and emailed everyone I can think of - we need to contact US news / media agencies ASAP (TV & Radio)... IF enough people visit the website and even if they only donate $1, it will cover the costs of medical treatment. Top priority is getting the word out far and wide before it's too late! If you have any influential friends or network connections, now is the time to contact them...

Hi All,
Unfortunately I have bad news. Blaze and Nusia are declining with no hope for recovery. This is a very difficult decision for Tina and me, but a decision that has to be made to prevent any further suffering. We will be putting Blaze and Nusia to sleep later today.

Thank you all for your support, prayers, and sympathy.

Oh no :(
I am so sorry to hear about that! It must've been a very hard descission for you to release them from their suffering.
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your dogs.
To prevent further poisening of your animals I think it would be a good idea to patrol the backyard and inspect it for any more poisened food before letting your dogs out. As bothersome as this might be, I don't think the culprit's going to stop with these vicious acts.

And about the person who poisened them: if there are any chances that you're going to read this message I want you to know this: you are a horrible person. And you should feel horrible, but since you did the same horrible thing TWICE I guess you completly lack any feelings other than maliciousness and hate. Shame on you.
Too bad you can't take some person's lifetime and give it to someone else....

I am so sick over this. This is Freyja's dad and Darwin's sister :cry: :cry: :cry:
People may dislike one another, even hate one another--but there is never any reason to take out anger or frustration on animals. Ever.
It shows a complete lack of respect for life.

Please folks, do all you can to help. Don't just sit there and wish we could catch this guy. Help get the word out. (I've been beating this drum on Facebook).

Contact the Bannow's local police department and encourage the investigation (please be polite): http://www.co.pasquotank.nc.us/departme ... index.html The detective's name is: Sam Kieth and his phone number is: 252-338-2191

Contact national news agencies and inform them of the story. Give them links to the newspaper and online video stories:
http://wtkr.com/2012/05/04/five-dogs-po ... ti-freeze/
http://www.foxsportscarolinas.com/05/04 ... kID=723498

Think of every possible organization that is related to dogs and pets, like the Humane Society of the United States, write to them, explain what happened, the extent of the vet bills, and provide links to the news stories.

Write to antifreeze companies pleading with them to change the formula. Non-toxic antifreeze exists.

And of course, chip in to help cover the cost of vet bills:

OR
If someone wants to help and does not have chipin or is uncomfortable, they can call the vet directly and see if they will accept money toward the bill: http://www.chesapeakeanimalhospital.com ... ncies.html
phone number to the vet is 757-366-9000

We are drawn together as a community because of our love of Tamaskan Dogs. Let's work together as a community to support the Bannow Family.
My deepest sympathies,
Tracy Graziano

bark as if no one can hear you
catch the ball on the fly
lick like there's no end to kissing
sleep on a sofa nearby
jump like the sky is the limit
sit by the fire with friends
stay with the ones who love you
run like the road never ends
