"So, I placed my heart, under lock and key. To take some time and take care of me. But I turn around, and you're standing here. How did you get here? Nobody's supposed to be here. I tried that love thing for the last time. My heart says... no, no... nobody's supposed to be here, but you came along and changed my mind!" - 'Nobody's supposed to be here.' by Deborah Cox

Hi all, well a lot has happened.

Going to see a movie was really enjoyable.

But here's what's gone on.

Found out about Charity Fraud and learned that theft by charity fraud could work for a case like mine.

Went on vacation in San Francisco last month and believe me I really needed it.

I'm happy to report my depressed and bitter state has pretty much dropped by the wayside thanks to a six month old puppy. Though I had said I'd never get another dog, I gave in.

His name is Cooper and according to his lineage he and Rudy ARE cousins, just 4 generations apart. His Grandmother is actually her Great Aunt. He's truly been a great help and prevented what probably would have been the worst breakdown in my life.

While I still plan to persue filing for writ of possession and legal aid, I got Cooper with the mindset that IF all the courts will give me is compensation instead of ordering Rudy to be returned, I'll have a dog who is related to her and for lack of better words I am NEVER letting history repeat itself. In other words, I will NOT go to an animal rescue for help ever again. I'm not saying all of them are bad but rescue groups and shelters have changed from what they were back in the 90s and early 2000s, nowadays they are pretty much ran by criminals who will steal dogs and sell them. Many of them don't care how many dog owners they hurt or the hundreds of dogs who are mentally scared for life by being ripped away from the people they love.

 I plan to register Cooper as a therapy dog, by law he would stay with me regardless of if there's a no pets allowed rule. I also found out many fake non profit organizations in Vegas register with the Secretary of State who does NOT inspect or regulate them! Many of these groups have money they NEVER filed with the IRS, I'm talking millions of dollars that are off-the-books! Basically, it's tax evasion which nothing to joke about.

A couple of weeks ago I had to put two non supporters in their place regarding my dog. Sorry but if they suffered the way I have, neither of them would want someone calling them a loser or idiot. You don't say that to somebody you just met.

While I'm not giving up on my search for Rudy, now that I have Cooper, he will be keeping me occupied in addition to getting back to writing and working on my art. I've been in a rut for too long and want to get my life back in order.

Will post photos soon.

Overall, I'm glad I finally got the break that I desperately deserved.

As for breeding my fish, the second attempt failed but I'll try again probably in September, mostly because I'll be San Diego next weekend, plus I have family visiting at the end of the month.

Will post how things go.

Again, thanks for reading.
