I posted a petition to help in seeing that justice is served for the murder of “Princess” and the suffering this caused for her family! But, unexpected “Revelation” came from this horrible tragedy!
The following quote was used from the petition as the heading to my post.
“An innocent puppy was reportedly shot and killed while on a walk with her family, including an eight-year-old girl for whom the animal was a gift. The alleged shooter, 19-year-old Johansen Concepcion De La Ros, was reported to have shot the puppy with a rifle from a second-floor balcony. When arrested and taken in on animal cruelty charges, he apparently claimed it was an accident. According to reports, Roshelle Paron was taking the family dog, Princess, on a walk around the neighborhood when Princess was shot. When police arrived, Princess was covered in blood and laying limp in Parson’s arms. Witnesses to the event pointed to Concepcion De La Ros as the killer.”
All of the following transpired as I was seeking answers and higher meaning to this extremely painful and senseless tragedy! These following written exchanges led to much further insight and inspiration, all from a Puppy and a Girl!
Thank you very much for your quick and sure response to this most egregious tragedy; at one moment a happy little puppy named “Princess” and her “Human Princess” an 8 year old child having a wonderful moment in time loving each other and life! Then for all of that to be destroyed by evil acting through a vile young man whose heart is either missing or possessed by evil forces enabling him to destroy all that beauty and good in a heartbeat! This reminds me of how in the movie “John Wick” a puppy left to him by his recently lost soul mate as a final GIFT and goodbye is snuffed out by those demonic criminal thug men; then the ensuing rage that John Wick rightfully feels when he goes on his mission of retribution and justice! I cry each time I watch that movie and see that scene and it brings home so many painful things that have happened to me in the last dozen years; brought to my doorstep by that same kind of evil in the world! I’ve been a bit under the weather lately and have carefully thought through some deep questions I’m facing along with my own writing; and I actually watched John Wick again a couple of nights ago leading up to me getting an email this morning about this puppy! I freaked out and thought there must be a reason! Now I’m contemplating that reason, and at least for now I was to be inspired to act upon this current petition which I could have passed by. The motivation to send out this post to all of you will have a ripple effect as indeed it should, but I will be continuing to seek insight as to what further meaning I’m supposed to see in all of this so I might facilitate additional positive action that will be necessary soon or in the near future!
I can sense there is something coming so that I can make a difference and that mission will become clear as the time to do so approaches! I share this because this is how I think we all should gauge our daily lives and behavior, in accordance with higher thinking and inspiration on a spiritual level of consciousness! I have to end for now with a clearly evident point that my focus and perhaps many of yours should be as well, which is; evil’s attack upon “Innocence!” Peace!
Hello Doc Dear Friend! The Leader of so many Animal Advocacy Efforts has brought the needed lift for this good cause to be taken to a higher level in order to carry the most weight possible in forcing CHANGE! I know we aren’t social scientists or law makers, but we are all good decent people that see the ugly crimes and sins being committed all around the Planet and we must demand that it stop while substantive change be implemented and ENFORCED!
Talking or slaps on the wrists, those days are over and that is what led to these more horrific, shameful and barbaric behaviors by all aged men and sometimes women! I will say this again as I have said in other posts or articles I have written; CONSEQUENCES, there must be a heavy penalty for ANYONE who commits an obvious evil or otherwise criminal act upon another, be it a PUPPY DOG or A PERSON! No excuses or passing the buck for political reasons or anything else! This was an outlandish crime and the criminal minded despot that did it needs to pay the price and live for many years in PRISON! The fact of what he did and the surrounding circumstances prove beyond a doubt that this individual is extremely dangerous and cannot be allowed to be in society!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you again for all you have done and do in the Advocacy for all Sentient Animal Beings! I especially want to thank you for the inspiration you have been to me in my own desire to help promote the respect, love, appreciation, protection and preservation of all sentient animal life on our amazing planet!
Yesterday I received an update from another wonderful advocate Mary, which although bittersweet news it does drive home the fact that more municipalities across America are not just going through the motions and giving a slap on the wrist of perpetrators of Animal Cruelty cases as in the past and some serious consequences are being metered out! This case of little Princess the Puppy must still go through further investigation and prosecution but with the off duty eyewitness police officer along with the actual weapon used to shoot and kill Princess while out walking with her family, this should be an open and shut case as long as the sentencing will be appropriate and put this dangerous individual behind bars for a long time!
I’m going to copy the news article again to this message as I did elsewhere, but before I do I want to close with an afterthought about this loss of Princess! I remember a puppy about the same age as Princess that was being cared for at a local shelter, it was an Akita stray that I became interested in but the city shelter during the short time that the puppy was there at the shelter had noticed some behaviors that they said were troublesome and they decided to ship the puppy off to another shelter a few towns away that had more capability in working with difficult cases. I started going to the other shelter to visit that puppy over about a two week period and had talked to the director and staff on a few occasions! One day while visiting the puppy as I was playing with the dog just outside of its kennel area in a large open but enclosure area a man walked up who was one of the staff and said it was time for the puppy to go see the vet now! He explained that the decision had been finalized that the puppy needed to be put down because it would most likely grow up with temperament issues and they had tried to make sure that it was certain before making the final decision. He went on to say how the puppy looked cute now but could be a potentially very dangerous dog when adult size and that would be a difficult dog to place while of course there are liability concerns if the dog ever got loose or did some vicious attack to another dog or a person! When the man walked the dog off to its end I only saw that little puppy behind with tail wagging and that image stayed infused in my brain since!
I left the shelter and went to the ocean to cry and ask God why this is happening! I got to the beach and it was a cold late fall afternoon, and as I walked along I saw up ahead a lady sitting alone by a huge rock on the beach. As I was passing by her I saw she was smiling and I had been crying so she asked me if I was OK! I stopped and told her what had just happened and she told me how she had died on the operating table after a drunk driver T-boned her car and was revived which was a story unto itself! Then she said “don’t be sad anymore you did all you could and do you realize that you gave that dog the most important thing it could receive on this Earth during its short life?” I asked what she meant, and she told me “you gave that puppy genuine unconditional love, and it felt that love you gave to it so freely, that is what matters more than anything else now, you did a beautiful thing and the dog knew you loved him!” Princess also got the most valuable gift that life has to offer, Genuine Unconditional LOVE!
Princess, she too received that most precious gift that comes from God before her short life ended! As it turns out that both young Roshelle and Princess experienced a horrible and painful tragic loss, they did in fact for a brief time share “Perfect, Innocent Unconditional Love,” that can never be destroyed!
The following is the Update News Article about Princess: South Florida Sun Sentinel Oct. 8, 2018
“Off-duty Officer Miguel Osorio immediately phoned 911 to report seeing the sniper who shot a Chihuahua puppy dead. Davie police have released a recording of the 911 call in which he describes the Sept. 29 pellet-rifle attack on a pup named Princess. The dispatcher may not have realized the urgency of matter, asking if officers should show up. “Do you need police — or just paramedics?” she asks. Osorio replies, “I need police. Yeah, they committed a crime. That’s animal cruelty. “During Osorio’s 911 call, he says, “I was driving by and I saw it happen.” He describes the man with the weapon, perched on a balcony. The 911 call was edited to omit Osorio’s name, but Davie police have previously identified him as the off-duty Pembroke Pines officer who helped. Osorio later repeated to the dispatcher, “I need police!” The dispatcher assures him that police are on the way. The officer describes how the weapon was some sort of pellet gun. “I didn’t hear any shot, and a gun that big would have made a really loud noise,” he said. “So it’s got to be a BB gun or some sort of paint gun. They killed a dog.” Davie police arrested Johansen Concepcion De La Ros, 19, on charges of animal cruelty. If convicted, he could face five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.”
In closing, I have seen the stark reality of how the consequences of sin and especially hate or lack of love is further “separation” from God or Pure Complete Love! But, Sweet Innocence and Purity of Heart or Unconditional Love is “Forever Alive and Connected with the Eternal Power of the Universe, God!”
