Horrible News  
When I went to stay with my friend Heather in Andalusia last year she had a little dog, Tilly. She was just a pup, about 8 months old. I've always adored dogs, always wanted one. When I was a kid I walked half the dogs in my street. After my folks split and I would go and hang round the office at his work I walked peoples dogs there too. It's unlikely I will ever own a dog of my own as Mr V doesn't like them. Besides it's bedlam enough with 3 cats and I don't really want to be known as that mad animal woman. It's bad enough being that mad always crying woman!

So I fell deeply in love with Tilly. She slept in my bed every night, followed me around. I couldn't help but spoil her. I opened a packet of biscuits one night and for every one I had she got three. I couldn't resist her sweet little face or gorgeous brown eyes. She chewed and destroyed my headphones and I forgave her. She bit a big chunk out of the chorizo I bought to bring home. A milisecond of annoyance then she wagged her little tail and I didn't care. I'm hoping to visit Heather again and one of the things I've been most looking forward to was seeing Tills.

Today H and I were catching up on MSN and I asked how Tilly was...

She (and the other dog Rasta) were poisoned by an ex neighbour. He thought they had attacked his turkeys. They hadn't but he killed them none the less.

I'm absolutely gutted. I know she wasn't mine, but I often thought of her. When I was dreadfully homesick whilst over there Tilly kept me company. She had me roaring with laughter with her mad puppy energy.  Poor little thing. I hate people some times.

RIP Tillykins xxxxx

as you can see, Rasta was well and happy after I got her back in late June.
This picture was taken in September (you can also see there my other two dogs)

and here she is after her "Haircut", with Ari, who is madly in love with her

very much alive alive for a dog whos got poisoned and killed.

Tilly, I was told is also still alive and went to someone in the area. A friend managed that. After both of them were dumped at their place and the lying person made a quick exit from where she was.

I never understood how people got taken in by that lunatic ex of yours, you're way better off without it.

fuck, I have no idea what to believe anymore. I was crushed when I thought tilly and rasta had been killed. Now I don't know what to think

Just be happy the dogs are still alive and thriving - as for the other, lying dog. The less said perhaps the better. A very nasty side showing her true colours was evident in places you had the good sense not to visit.

hard to believe
heard about her from a spanish contact - heather/hedonistah is bad news in southern Spain. Some sort of bipolar/mental health issue, untreatable as she never admits it. Comes from her parents. Best avoided, she's unstable last heard her kid had been taken into care and shes in clink, unable to confirm for sure but she hasn't been seen around here for a while which is good for the area.
