My Details

Name: Dan Hetland
Profession: Retired Medical
About Me: I hate to say it because it makes it seem so much more something?, but I've lost my girl Sasha, she was with me for a very long time and I feel blessed to have had her in my life for as long as I did. In the last few months, she'd developed some cognitive difficulties and some other problems that she would be disturbed by herself, and her sister Nut had taken to spending most of her time outside, rather than being around Sasha. I kept telling myself that Sasha wasn't in any pain so it didn't seem right to put her down yet, but I finally realized I was being selfish in not letting her go, she was almost 16 years old, and she was tired. It just hurt so badly. I just read the intro I wrote for Sasha for the site and how I wish we could start all over again. This past Saturday, October the 4th was 8 weeks since I had her put down. I was thinking earlier of when she was a few years younger she used to have this incredible smile that made her whole face crinkle up. It was wonderful. She was such an extraordinary dog and companion. I have always been so blessed when it comes to companion animals; I have never had a dog that was a bit of a problem or concern. Each and every one has been magnificent and fit right into my life at exactly the right time. I feel, I imagine, just as everyone else, their lives are always cut too short and the pain is at first almost unbearable but it subsides after awhile.

My Comments

I like your idea about a animal abuser registry, sounds like something we should propose to our Congressmen, there are way too many people who should be on the list that continue to get pets.
Dear Dan, Thank you so much for your condolences. I will be definitely be looking into your city. I appreciate any help and suggestions in helping to stop this problem that seems to be on the up rise. Love to you and your pups. Maureen Lynch
Bravo on your comments regarding the dog at the master's graveside. I fully agree, it is not that it's not do-able, we just need the will to invest in "communication" tools with our four legged friends.
Dan, thanks for your comment to me concerning my comment to Robert. Dogs do make the world a better place!
hi dan! thanks for your encouraging comments. i was trying to reach the REAL corp office and all i could find were regional corp offices pertaining to franchises. and of course, they DO NOT want me contacting their president or ceo at the real corp office. the problem is, i simply cannot find the information i need. i don't know who to contact the person who was on undercover boss. i don't have a name, location, etc. i am exhausted. i have about 10 chronic illnesses and i don't go out much nor can i drive right now under the influence of some of my meds. so it's a BIG DEAL when i do go out. i am also 1/2 irish and 1/2 native american, so i have some fight in me! :) the only reason i push this is because i know hooters has done this to others and some were even veterans. i do not want them to think it's "ok", like that manager said, "because no one has papers and doesn't want to fight him." i don't want to fight him either, but i am because i have friends who are disabled and would not be able to take the pressure. like one rude commenter told me on dogheirs.... "if he embarrassed you, why didn't you just walk away?" and THAT is why i didn't because they think they can bully us into submission. i just hope i am still alive to see what the DOJ does to this guy and his company. obviously, if this is happening over and over again, they aren't concerned with obeying the law, just concerned with making money and "their image". i told them i posted my story online and they have not only had people follow me here, but facebook and other places they can google and see my story. i am truly sorry for what you went through. i know you know how it feels. to humiliate us for something for which we have no control. sigh. have a wonderful week and again, thank you. bevy
