    According To Owner

    POSTED: 2:39 pm PDT July 19, 2006

    BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A dog trainer said that a dog was so ill-behaved that she needed to "exorcise" the rebellion out of the puppy. The dog's owner said the trainer's methods led to the German shepherd's death.

    Lisa Berstien said that she took her dog, Ringo, to trainer Jill Deringer after Petco referred her to the trainer. Deringer is employed by Petco, Miami television station WPLG reported.Berstien said that Deringer came to her home Sunday to perform a procedure on Ringo. Berstien said that Deringer muzzled the dog and sat on him. She said that Deringer had her hold her dog's paws still while the trainer poked the dog in the head and stomach for about an hour.

    Berstien said the dog began foaming at the mouth and lapsed into unconsciousness. She rushed the dog to an animal hospital, where it later died. more at link:http://www.ktvu.com/family/9544547/detail.html

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Why would the owner be stupid enough to allow that to go on for an hour? That poor puppy! What a terrible way to go.

    It doesn't sound like there was a brain in the room. Both the owner and the so-called trainer seem to be lacking lots of things such as common sense, compassion, etc. etc. etc. Poor dog! Better off NOT living with that owner, I guess.
