Horribly Sad

This is one of the saddest things I've ever had to post about.

A lot of times, a pug (or other dog, or animal) is found after abuse and is taken into rescue. I beg you all to donate, and we follow that dog's story. Sometimes the ending is happy, sometimes it's not, but the dog is always loved at the end. This story is not like that.

This Boston Terrier, Bandit, was found mutilated and murdered on the grounds of Rex Putnam High School, in Milwaukie, Oregon. Bandit had been stolen from his family’s yard, stabbed, skinned and hung on a tree. Can you imagine the pain this poor family is going through? Not able to hold Bandit, show him they loved him?

The news story is here. Please forward to anyone you know in Oregon.

Lili from Doggie Drawings has a lot more information here about Bandit's story and the memorial. This is the drawing she did of him:

This made me really just want to hold my puggies, especially little Dixie Bugg (half Boston.) So I leave you with some cute Bugg photos to hopefully turn our frowns upside down. Please link this story so others know about Bandit- hopefully we can bring his killer(s) to justice.

That is so sick. That poor little puppy. How could someone do that to a dog? Seriously?

i am crying now. I hope they arrest the monster.

Sick Sick Sick people in this world. I pray they catch this psyco and send It to jail. How could anyone do such a horrible thing? This pisses me off.

That is horrible! I really want to go home and hug the Posse now. The worst part is that even if whoever did that is caught, the punishment could never do Bandit justice. If only what they did to Bandit would happen to them...
Thanks for the Bugg pix...Bugg pix always bring a smile to my face!
Pug hugs and kisses,

Sad to say, but growing up we had neighbors that lived behind us (grew up out in the country so this neighbor was a little bit aways from us). Their teenage sons did disgustingly similar actions as what was done to Bandit. It didn't matter what type of animal - they did not discriminate - cats, dogs, squirrels, you name it.

People are sick, I will never understand how a person can do something like this to a helpless animal - or to anything for that matter. In the end, justice will be served as they stand before God being judged.

Kelly, honey.....this REALLY tears my ticket.

There's an American Native tribe that believes when ya die yer greeted by every animal ya ever encountered in life and THEY decide if ya make it to heaven.

If this is the case, some sick piece o' shit out there is headin' to hell on a fast train.

And I apologize fer cussin' on yer blog.

How unthinkably cruel. Almost make you wish for the old eye-for-an-eye style punishment - the perpetrator should be stabbed, skinned & hung from a tree! I'm going to cuddle on all my boys right now - glad there are all here & safe with me!

I've seen a few bad stories like this lately. It's just so pointless. Poor pup. Love the pics of the pugs and bug.

Lily and Benson said...

Oh we are so sad. Maybe we should do that to the monster that committed the murder.

Hello! My mommie and I wanted to introduce ourselves. We enjoy reading your blog with Dixie, Sophie, and Harley. We follow now and just saw your sad post. That is horrible, who could do that to such a sweet little animal? It makes me sick.

Again we just wanted to say hello.

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

This makes my heart cry!
Those hateful people!
And I hate to say this-
This is my state where I live.
And the city is only 40 miles from where I live.
Sometimes peoples are so cruel.
I want to find the evil hearts and torture them!

Fred said...

Breaks my heart! I hope they find out who did it. I will never ever understand how some people can be so senselessly, ridiculously cruel.

Nevis said...

That is very sick. I hope the person who did it to Bandit is found so they can be punished. You know about people who start out hurting dogs like that. *shiver* Horrible news! I feel very bad for Bandit's family!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

This is one of the most terrible things we have ever read. We hope they catch and punish the monsters who did it!
Love to read about your adventures Bugg and Pugs xx

I am so sick to my stomach right now......what is WRONG with people?!
My god the poor helpless Bandit!! I think people who hurt or kill animals should be criminally sentenced, as if it were a person they did this to! SICK SICK SICK!
