Dogs would never meet me if it wasn’t for their people setting up the appointment. So by the very nature of my business, I meet well-intentioned people that want to learn more about their dogs. And in turn I get to spend my days with dogs, the least confusing part of my life.
This is my norm more or less, and this is why I love what I do.
But every now and again, and not even yearly sometimes, a bad egg of a person seems to make their way to me, either in person, on-line, or via post mail, and it stands out, loud and clear.
I don’t consider any threat an idle threat, if someone by the nature of their words or actions put me into a fear response of fight, flight, or freeze, I call the police. Period.
REAL EXAMPLES – Here is an example of a bad egg, a pedophile that tracked our family for a bit in 2017. He found me through my articles, and I contacted the police immediately. These are the polite posts he started with –
RHUMB – Before Rhumb died in December there was a lot of bad energy that I couldn’t make sense of, other than it was there. Just to be clear, at this point we still do not know what caused her rapid and violent decline. I believe any answers I find will come in the form of eliminating what didn’t kill her. And there may truly never be a definitive answer. NOTE – There is still a toxicology lab being run right now.
This is simply just bringing some darkness out into the light, and sharing the synchronicity of the events.
IN-PERSON THREATS – Weeks before Rhumb died someone came to my property and threatened me, my animals, and my business. It was loud enough that neighbors came out to see what was happening. I called my other neighbors that are like family to make sure they knew what had happened, and it is now documented.
COMMENTS – My social media started to get odd, disturbing, and even threatening in December. I usually hide them from the public and wait to see how it plays out for a bit, and who the person is. Is it serious, someone just emotionally dumping, personal, crazy, or dangerous. I received a total of 28 comments from the same person, whom I don’t know, starting the day after Rhumb died until just after Christmas. NOTE – I had not made it public knowledge that Rhumb was dead.
This same person started to send me e-mail messages as if they knew me, and they were specific, so I can not share. The next day I blocked this person, and the following day there was no sign of this person on the internet anywhere. No social media accounts, no e-mail that was valid, nothing.
DRIVING AROUND TOWN – The day before Rhumb died my dogs were with me doing errands, Rhumb was my dog who would sit in the drivers seat and wait for my return. It was cold out but the sun was warm so I had my windows cracked. I looked at me receipts from that day and the time stamps, and then called those businesses to see if they could look at their video footage of the parking area during the time I was in the store. Two businesses had video footage and nothing suspicious, two businesses did not have video cameras in their parking area.
HAPPENING IN OUR TOWN – Two days after Rhumb had died, one of our family friends sent this over and told us to be careful. Again, nobody knew she was already dead.
REALITY – This has been leveling for us over the past 7 weeks, the medical and environmental possibilities, the acts, words, and real threats. It remains to be seen if any of these threats were connected to our Rhumb.
And the real reality is, I was not ready for My Rhumb to be a memory.
ADVICE – If you ever encounter a threat, any kind of threat, whether it is in person or on-line, tell people, tell everyone around you, and if it feels right, call the police. Never underestimate the power of someone else’ instability.
