YouTube Video Exposes Nurse Beating a Yorkie


How can someone be SO ABUSIVE?

I try not to post anything depressing or sad on this site. Because I read lots of horrific abusive stories - unspeakable acts you can not even imagine - and I just refuse to post them. It's too sad.

Today this story came across my desk- and I will not post the video - because it is too graphic - but this woman is SICK. This made me sob.

A Brazilian nurse, who is married to a doctor, was caught on camera repeatedly attacking a yorkie, which later died of its injuries. When Police refused to take action, the neighbor who shot the video, posted it on YouTube. The nurse now has gone into hiding after receiving 40,000 threats! Her apartment block was surrounded by a mob throwing stones. There have even been people offering money for someone to kill her.

After a national outcry, an investigation was quickly launched, and hundreds of thousands have joined Facebook groups or signed an online petition demanding that the 22-year-old be brought to justice.

When officers arrived at de Moura's home she reportedly tried to explain her actions by saying she was ‘having a bad day, going through some family problems and an attack of nerves.’ - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? You throw and beat and abuse a helpless animal, cause you're having a bad day! She should be JAILED!

A police spokesman said the investigation is expected to conclude on Wednesday and could result in de Moura being sentenced to up to a year in prison for animal cruelty.

The brutal attack was witnessed by a child, so she could also be charged under the Children's Act for 'exposing a child to shame or embarrassment, the maximum penalty for which is three years behind bars,' he added.

This is so sad. And so sickening.

Trixie Lee and Coco Chanel Holiday Gathering

This past weekend I was in Michigan, and got to visit Miss Coco Chanel - the Yorkie who started this blog, about 6 years ago.

Miss Coco is about 17 years old now, and not doing real well. She is pretty much blind, and deaf, and has a hard time getting around. But it was so nice to see her and visit. Her house was a glorious display of Holiday Magic! - I got a new holiday t-shirt!!

The shots below are of Coco. She does not seem to be in any pain - her doctor says she is still very healthy! But you can tell her quality of life is not what it used to be. I wish she would play with me - but she just is not up for that. She is such a sweetheart! I just want to snuggle with her and hold her.

After a few hours of visiting, we had to head back home, and I was pretty tired out!
In just a few days, Christmas will be here. I can't wait!

Happy Holidays!
