Memorial service for Rosie the Newfoundland



I am sad to report that another innocent dog has been gunned down, this time in a quiet Seattle area neighborhood by local police. Rosie escaped from her back yard and was roaming loose in her neighborhood. 911 was called only because a concerned citizen was afraid the dog would be hit by a car as local kids chased her down the street. After being chased by the police, harassed and tazed (twice) by 3 policemen, one of them decided to put 4 bullets into the young, female Newfy who was cowering in terror under some bushes.
-FOUR BULLETS- This is just so outrageous - words escape me. WTF is going on with the law enforcement community? Bear Bear, Rosie and so many others. Is there no empathy, no training (besides target practice), no conscience?
Oh yea, one other thing: Rosie had been chased through an open gate into Lora Perry's fenced back yard. She could have been easily contained until brighter bulbs arrived. WHY did deadly force have to be used? WHY

This has devastated a family with no children. The dog got out of the yard. How can that ever lead to a murder. This officer will kill again. Maybe another dog, maybe a human. Why would a city take that risk. Thank everyone for their kindness and support.

This is completely senseless. I wish the same fate for this law enforcement officer. Yes I really said it and yes I really meant it....

Hi KT,
the golf towel came from http://www.doodlesport.com/.

They have lots of things and this was the first time we ordered with them. We were most impressed they had a dane with natural ears.

woof - Tucker
