In her own words…..

July 29, 2010

No introduction is necessary….

My Dear Friends (and those I have lost over the years)

As you know I have long been an avid supporter of Rutland Manor Labradoodles in Australia and its breeder owner, Beverley Manners. My beautiful Yarra and Yindi have made the trip across the pond to me and I am grateful to have them. Yindi though is currently in boot camp for some behaviour issues, and will be followed for potential cardiac problems and other possible genetic issues by my veterinarians. I have come to learn that Knossos has thrown puppies with cardiac issues in the past. Knossos is Yindi’s father.

In a way it is the two of them, Yarra and Yindi who brought me to this point in my life where I can tell you I was wrong. Wrong, blindsided, bamboozled and as my Australian friends from my trips there would say “gobsmacked”!

Since late August 2009 until now, with two trips behind me and a new puppy, I can tell you without reservation, that I have seen the worst of the worst on sites such as Prisoners for Profit, Farms of Shame and this website. I admit without embarrassment that I looked at Rutland Manor and Beverley through rose colored glasses and was in total denial for a long time because I truly was a believer. If it is possible to be hypnotised without knowing it, when in her presence, in retrospect I wonder if that is what happened. But, I and only I am responsible for believing.

I know of people in Australia who are under constant threat to their property and their lives. Two of them had their homes broken into a couple of weeks ago. Some have been robbed, beaten and threatened. Former employees live in fear if they speak out publicly. Last Saturday, an 8 week old puppy was stolen from a well known and respected breeder in Australia under mysterious circumstances. This has all caused me untold grief and anger and I have simply withdrawn for the most part.

To the fabulous breeders in AU, UK, and the USA who have done significant testing on their studs and bitches from Rutland Manor, to sell healthy and happy pups, I salute you. To others who have not used these dogs but used others for whom accurate health and temperament testing, I salute you. To owners all over the world who have happy, confident, loving and healthy labradoodles from the RM lines, I salute you.

The purpose of my trip last fall to RM was that I was going to help what I thought was an elderly woman, in danger and the victim of attacks from the EPA, RSPCA and activists. During that stay, I was there with another lady from Texas who I had never met and she went for the same reason. We planned to get to the bottom of of all the accusations. When we arrived, we were immediately bombarded with emails, paperwork, reports on attacks and vicious lies and were glued to our computers and helped create a website to offset the lies, as we thought they were, at that time. We had almost no sleep, no nutrition unless we went to a fast food place. While we found the kennels to be very old and were not happy about that, our main job was writing and answering accusations. We had little to no interaction with the dogs. In retrospect, Beverley never visited or interacted with her dogs at all. She had a very small staff of two people who looked after them. We did interact with the three bitches and their total of 22 puppies on a daily basis. We cleaned the puppy nurseries and sorted everyone out in the evening and cuddled each and every puppy many, many times each night. I know now, that one of Yindi’s issues is fear based and that she had no human, early stimulation during her imprint weeks, from birth until about 6 weeks old.

We were told by Beverley that the RSPCA was going to raid RM and seize all her dogs and that she would never get them back and we feared that. She therefore arranged for a few people to come and take all the dogs from the property with the exception of the three bitches and their 3 week old puppies. Beverley had us convinced that someone would come and either steal or kill the puppies.  So on a rainy night, the three of us moved whelping boxes, Mums and puppies into the house. We sat up in the lounge room dozing on and off and listening for expected intruders. I now believe that we were both Stockholmed. There was danger in that there was property damage, things moved around in the night and problems with a neighbour who ran us successfully off the road and into a ditch twice and another time, drove straight at me and I truly believe he would hit me and I dove to the ground for safety. Toward the end of our visit, we were so fearful, tired and overwhelmed, I called upon a friend in Sydney who advised me to call the US Consulate General. I did so and it was arranged with the local police that they would escort us safely off the Rutland Manor property.

I was ready to leave…I was traumatised and in disbelief of what was happening to me and my friend as we had bonded and stay close to this day. Our families back in the US were terrified for our safety. We still wonder how this happened and cant believe sometimes that it did happen. We returned shaken and questioning who and what was right at RM?

Unbelievably I returned two months later. Yindi had been born and I was eager to see her as a little pup and was told I would be mentored in “Early Cognitive Conditioning” so that I could teach it when I returned to the US. Since my first visit, being safely at home, I began to study the so called ‘hate’ sites, read archives and decided my other purpose was to investigate and interact with the dogs. It was that trip, made by myself, with my camera, with my questions in place, and alone that I literally saw the wickedness and untruthfulness of what was occurring there. I unclothed my mind and my feelings and looked independently for the first time at something I had been defending wholeheartedly , and in doing so had brought others to either “my” side, or against “me”.

The breeding dogs were all back at RM… and yes, the situation there was both ungodly and unsafe. I did not consider the dogs to be protected, loved, interacted with, cared for…in almost any way. Nor was there any”early stimulation” training offered or given. Puppies practically raising them selves, dogs fending for themselves, dirty kennels, roofless pens. I could barely stand to be there, but I recognised that it was, possibly, the most important visit at the most critical time in my life and RM’s in which I should of been there. Aside from the visual conditions, what is imprinted in my mind forever is the stench of the dogs I shaved to the skin, bringing off sheets of matted, urine and faeces soaked coats. I found that most of the dogs had grass seeds burrowed into their toes, bodies and in some cases the genitals of female dogs. I shaved male dogs with testicles matted to their legs. I did confront Beverley with my disbelief in these atrocities and she was quick to blame her staff, the lady who had many of the dogs when they were previously removed from the property. These dogs were not neglected for a couple of weeks but rather, they were not attended to for months. At one point, I insisted the vet be called to the property and her face showed the shock she felt seeing the dogs. One dog had to go to the clinic to be anaesthetised to remove the grass seed stickers from her inner ears and vulva. There was a new girl there training and the work we encountered was so overwhelming, she called her Mum to help. Many times the three of us hugged as we cried over the condition of the dogs. We three worked sunup to sundown cleaning ears, pulling stickers out of paws and skin, treating wounds and cleaning up the kennel grooming area, finding medications that were as old as 7 years! As tirelessly as we worked, we were only able to shave down about half a dozen dogs during the time I was there.

Yindi was too young to bring home or I would have put her in my pocketbook with my camera and rowed all the way across the pond.

At the time of the first visit Beverley talked about the arrangement she made with this lady and her husband to get the dogs to the United States as well as herself. She told me that with everything going against her, she was ashamed to be an Australian and considered immigrating to the US. These people were planning not only to sponsor her, but also build a ‘granny flat’ and see that she was cared for the rest of her life. That she should write a book, give grooming clinics all over the US and build “Rutland’s Legacy” to carry on her work. Little did we know that “Rutland’s Legacy” would never happen and these people were simply a bookmark to hold the dogs as there was a Supreme Court case in Australia to seize the dogs. What did we know, how did we know we were being duped? However, for the love of a dog we worked earnestly with Beverley to get her and the dogs moved to safety from the authorities in Australia who were, so to speak, making her life hell. Oh what little we both knew then!

During my stay at RM the second time, I had opportunities to encourage Beverley to take the offer of starting life over, a life of retirement, writing a book, playing with her dogs, living with the family who had offered space and time. The legacy would be very small, but the dogs would be safe. And, with advancing age, Beverley would herself (in a public letter) proclaim she would be able to quietly live the end of her years at least writing about her life with dogs. Talk and planning for that did not cease, and ultimately many of the dogs were shipped to Texas and are living a life we could only dream.  In April, Beverley arrived in the US, visited here, stayed with me then headed for Texas where she was treated like royalty for 2 months. She was there supposedly to mentor these people and she did none of that. Ever! She spent every waking minute on her laptop or on her phone. She could stay up for days at a time and then sleep for a whole day. All in all, it was very bizarre.

Some of you will remember me heading for Texas with a friend, our four RM labradoodles to help with grooming, socialisation, whelping, allthat was required when these dogs arrived and litters born there. The dogs I was not able to shave in Australia arrived in America in the despicable condition that I had documented. The vet in Texas was shocked at the underweight, parasite and worm infested dogs who had no clue as to what human interaction was. While I was there for two weeks, there was also a pulling inward of Beverley from both the family and others who were there to help. There were times when she had no idea who Kelby was or who Pride was. By the time I arrived, I did not recognise the dogs I had left in Australia in early January. They were plumped up, well groomed and totally intergrated into their family. There were often as many as 17 Labradoodles sprawled around their home and they often said *they* were living in the dog’s kennel.

The situation basically fell apart on June 20th, to the point that Beverley asked to be driven to a hotel near the DFW airport as she planned to go back to California from where she would depart for Australia. She emailed me of her decision to leave of her own volition. Later, she publicly posted that the family had thrown her out, into a hotel in the middle of nowhere, a sick, old woman. The dogs remain safe, loved, cared for, and it is hoped will live out their lives there or in companion homes as is needed. Altogether there are over 22 Rutland Manor dogs in Texas. Unfortunately, the final group never got to the US and to this day we are all sick and saddened that they are still living in horrible circumstances and probably being bred over and over. There are new litters on the ground at this moment. You wont find that on Beverley’s website. For some reason, she is hiding that and there are no photos or information on her breeding dogs. I have seen orders from the authorities that she was breaking the law by overbreeding and by choosing to debark many of the dogs.

As I look at the photographs I took at RM, spoke to close friends and family about what had occurred, brought my Yindi into my life and then came face to face with her issues…I recognised  that I had pulled the wool over my eyes, put my own head in the sand.

Below I have placed some of my own photographs of my second trip to RM. I have to believe that you will understand how difficult it was for me to turn my entire way of  life regarding RM around and see things as they really were/are.

Pride's mangled coat. I shaved him to the skin, the matts were like footballs His testicles were matted to his legs

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a “Dear John” letter to Beverley ending for once and forever my relationship with her and my support of her unethical breeding and care of the Labradoodles. This has been at the cots of both my health and my psyche. But now an important time to tell you that I apologise for my obsession …for my words of support…for the sadness this has and will bring to many. I know my reputation for caring about the Labradoodles will prevail and those who truly know what is in my heart.

Some would say..”What the eye sees the heart remembers”. I am in deep grief and intolerable sadness. I continue to vocally support the breeders of RM dogs and other lines here in America and other countries who have done so many diagnostic testings never done at RM.

I support the owners of wonderful happy and healthy RM Labradoodles and those, like me now, who own one who may have health or temperament….but who is my responsibility for life and a resonsibility I do not take lightly.

An unrecognisable rump of a dog. The coat came off as a huge giant matt with a stench

Shaved and scared. Do these Labradoodle's look happy ?

I was blinded by the love of my Yarra, what I thought had been suitable and complete research at the time, and the love and fun of bringing my girl to my home and heart. This is true of Yindi also. She is now mine to love and care for whatever is ahead. I amy not be able to respond to specific questions, there may be a time when I cannot respond whatsoever. That is the way the law works I am learning. Thankyou for understanding. All for the love of the Labradoodles

Sadly

Kate Yarra & Yindi

A typical "bedroom". During the night often the dogs would poop on their beds

    So well written, and so true. I hope that those ‘disciples’ that are still out there finally realize that the ‘wool has been pulled over their eyes’. There are so many that have been conned, let’s face it , the ‘poor little old lady’ still has the where with all to have staff, cars property and to travel. When will people realize that Yarra and Yindi’s mom only speaks the TRUTH. And ultimately the truth will win. Congratulation on coming forward and trust that your conscience is clear. That is because you have a conscience, which is more that can be said for Beverley. As I have said before to others when they are down and stressed. “Look in the mirror, you will see a good , strong and honest woman who cares” You have the backing of so many trust that PLEASE.

    Congratulations Kate. I met you on your first visit to RM last year. I arrived at RM after Beverley extended me an open invitation on her website to come and view her dogs and kennels.
    I knew back then after talking with you for a while that you got it. There was something about you that made me feel you understood and had empathy for those dogs.
    Bravo for speaking out. I admire you.
    Beverley would have to be the most manipulative factory farmer I have ever come across, and I have come across a few.
    I am relieved some of the dogs are safe, I grieve for the ones left behind.

      Ms. Tranter, thank you so much for your support of Kate’s post here. I had comeback to look at this site after reading Kate’s post on one of our large Doodle forums here in the U.S.
      and, I have e-known Kate for approximately 5 years through that chat page.

      I have been in rescue and rehome for nearly 40 years in the United States, here now in FL where the blight of the daughter of Ms. Manners left us reeling some years ago with at least 6 dogs dead of Parvo and the remainder siezed into County shelter. I remember that vividly..and conditions at that “kennel” similar to her mother’s. ..and wondering then if the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. That period in the AL history a low water mark for those of us who own an ALD or any other Labradoodle for that matter. It was a shameful situation and totally unnecessary. But after awhile that faded from view as things of this sort can do
      and life continued on…apparently both here and in your Country.

      As an avocation, I have spent much time looking at the work of animal welfare individuals over the last ten years…the body of their work around the world, the ways in which they struggle to make themselves understood among often adverse conditions. This site, your work in so many areas in AU an important one as a model. I return here and to other sites which seem to have made a unified effort to stop what Kate has mentioned in her post here this morning.

      I noticed a few weeks ago that the University of Melbourne now has accreditation for its Veterinarian program…I searched it to see if there was something of a presence for animal speak, a voice for the animals of Australia, ombudspersons to work with you. I was sad to see that I could find nothing at all. That further exacerbates your having to stand alone in the work you do. Since I wear another hat aside from my rescue and rehome of Labradoodles and Goldendoodles…that as e-agent for very sick Doodles who’s owners need support financially in going forward to treatment…I have reason to move Country to Country to look at and for connections between animal welfare, canine illness, and the teaching centers for alliance and support.

      None of produce us who care about animals, and in this case Labradoodles of which I own two and have rescued and rehomed many others into new, forever homes, can do our work in isolation. It is afterall how I came to meet Kate on the chat forums…and to understand from her post today the grief she holds and the quality of life for the Doodles left at Rutland Mannor and still being allowed to breed. Between your photo’s and hers a pictorial event of virtually unbelievable proportion…and one I hope travels world wide to begin a new chapter in the life of stopping the cruelties mentioned in Kate’s post and here on this site.

      I simply want to say you have exposed the profiteering of Labradoodles and others, and you have done it with great heart for justice… and I know from my observations of others around the world, at great personal cost. Please know that if you need letters or e-mails to government officials…to the University…to the ambassadors to and from Austrailia and the United States,to import and export officials…whomever can be held accountable for these apparently long years of cruelty and abuse, rest assured that a strong American community of Labradoodle lovers, and lovers of all other animals for which you fight and support daily…we are, and I am, here to add that support.

      The photo’s of RM on your site are arguably the most gripping to those of us who love these beasts. Let us share your burden if it is necessary. I may be across the pond so to speak, but I am as close and as ready to help you stop this madness in any way you might deem important. And I will be pleased to watch a consciousness develop at the University level.
      It is, afterall, Veterinarians who, as necessary, chose to surgically debark by surgical mutilation, possibly euthanize unnecessarily, or were unable or unwilling to say, “No” and report the occurences when any number of these atrocities were occuring at RM. I consider them, collegially, by holding myself a higher degree culpable and accessory. This must change. No more parallel but distant work. The oath was taken, the oath must prevail. Continue your work and we are here to help you in any way possible. With regard and admiration for all you do and wish to do.

    Kate, as following the whole topic already from on the beginning I have to express my highest respect of coming out and admitting that you were false. You must feel relieved and I am glad to read that you have seen the light. The only bitter taste which is left over is the hurt feelings of many people you offended in the past while protecting RM against the accusations. Many people spoke the truth already back then and you offended them on many platforms although you knew you were lying about the real conditions at RM.
    However, you have the spine to speak up now and tell the world you were wrong.
    The dogs will be very thankful for this!

    • July 29, 2010 8:33 pm

      There is an old saying…”When you walk in my shoes, you will understand”.

      It is very difficult to pinpoint just when Kate came to her realization of how manipulative Bev is. ‘ When amongst trees, how does one know if it is the beginning of a forest or just a small stand of dense evergreens?’ It took a walk in her own shoes to witness the abuse and then she needed to figure out how was she to return home from that ‘forest of nightmares’ knowing what she did.

      What would you do in this position? The weak would bury their heads and try to forget; but the strong would want to make a change. It ONLY takes one strong person to pull a brick from a wall to begin its collapse – KATE thank you for pulling that brick. With God’s will and the enlightenment of many RM & TP doodle owners and breeders, may that wall come tumbling down and in its place a bright new fence be erected that all can see through.

        Joyce I don’t want to accuse Kate here. The contrary is the case, I respect her highly for going public admitting her mistakes.
        The only thing I want to stress are the friends she lost on her for sure very difficult journey to get to this point.
        She offended and de-friended people although she knew she was wrong. Why didn’t she stay put while figuring out what to do, why loose people she loved back over a web of lies?
        But this is not the point anyway. The point is that she saw the light and that I think that she is such a brave person for doing what she did. Bravo, Kate!

    I have felt all along that your real concern was for the dogs themselves, so many of them uncared for, unloved and not given the dignity of a life free from suffering and degradation.

    Thank you so much Kate. You are a woman of courage and quality.

    These poor neglected dogs forced to produce sick unsocialized unfit puppies. Poor thin Stuartlea Issabella registered number 380018281, her progeny sold fraudulently all over the world. Poor Knossos, no dog should be used when it is certain that sick puppies will be born.

    I know that FRAUD has been committed and will help all I can to bring it to notice.

  6. July 29, 2010 3:09 pm

    Kate,

    You are a very courageous person.

    Having met Beverley and experienced her strange behavior first-hand, I am not surprised that Rutland Manor’s shiny website does not at all resemble the reality of how these poor dogs were living.

    Kate, you are a hero for following your instincts and reassessing what was happening.

    As difficult as I’m imagining this is for you and your family, I hope you can take some comfort in the fact that there’s a Texas-size ranch with a whole bunch of dogs who’ve been given a second chance at a happy life.

    Kate, you took photos of our puppy Andie during your last trip there, as Andie and Yindi are from the same Ava/Knossos litter. Not sure if you are aware of our story:

    I think the important thing about this letter is that it’s a completely honest account about what conditions are truly like for the RM dogs….. from a “one time” Rutland Manor supporter
    It does take courage to admit that you were wrong and I applaud you for speaking out.
    The shame is that dogs are still suffering at the hands of this puppy farmer.
    There are many thousands like her world wide and I thank my God for the Internet where we can hopefully “out” breeders like RM wherever they might be.
    It is only by standing together and speaking out that we can hopefully put a stop to some of them.
    I feel a great sadness for the dogs left behind but perhaps , if as you say, the authorities are aware of her atrocious treatment they might well remove the dogs?
    This time she will not have the help and support to take the dogs out of the country…unless she has found other gullible people to brainwash.

    What have you to say about this post Mrs Manners?
    More importantly what have you to say about the accompanying pictures.
    I would be very interested in an explanation.

    The reputable breeders salute you! Thank you for pointing out that the dogs are wonderful – and should not be put down for what people have done. Imagine – if they can survive all the that horror and still be amazing dogs –
    There are breeders that do everything right – the total opposite of what is shown here. I hope that every family will ask the questions, get the answers, visit the breeder when possible, either see of request copies of the health testing, look at the pedigrees, etc.- in other words, do their homework.
    It has been a difficult road for you, Kate! But you can hold your head high, knowing that you have shared the truth as you experienced it.

    Kate, you are sooo brave, I remember you from the early Chit chat page and how you and your beautiful queen of all things, your Yarra supported Bev with all your heart and soul…She had such a treasure in you..I remember losing friends one after another after I realized Bev was not the person she appeared to be and jumped ship and stood my ground for being against her. I severed my ties to you, Twyla and the others that still couldn’t come to terms with realizing Bev was using all of you. However, I knew Debra and her heart was in the right place, she has stuck her neck out to save countless numbers of dogs from puppy farmers like Bev. The saddness that comes from this realizing is never easy and it hurts so bad…But you have done the right thing, exposing her for what she really is, a cruel and heartless puppy farmer, with no real feelings for man or animal. My heart goes out to you as I know this is one of the saddest things you will ever experience. Kate you are a hero for helping getting those dogs out of their hell hole and caring enough to set things right. Much love to you and Twyla of course…..heike

    It’s all so sad with the dogs being the victims in all of this. Beverley has severed ties with every friend she has ever had by demoralising them, insulting them or ripping them off in one way or the other. Countless people have been through her doors and been sucked in by the helpless little old lady act, only to realise they are dealing with a greedy, selfish, cunning, dishonest human being who has no feeling for any living creature other than herself. Good on you Kate for speaking up. There are many people out there ashamed of what they have done to others in the quest to protect Beverley because they believed her lies or they just simply needed a paycheck and couldn’t afford to leave. Ýou are rid of her now. Shake out all the bad energy that she filled you but be prepared for some sort of backlash from her. You know now you have a support unit here.

    Hello –
    Some time ago, I started the process of researching the Australian Labradoodle. I joined Rutland Manor’s chat page and was gratefull for Kate Pappas guidance and generouse nature in sharing her experiences with all of us novice doodle owners. I purchased a wonderful labradoodle from a local breeder and did not go the Rutland Manor route. During my research, however, I became more and more horrified to discover all of the terrible evidence against Beverley and her breeding practices. How could it all be true? To now hear Kate’s story is heartbreaking to me and I applaud her courage and her outrage that has caused her to stand strong and do what is right. I hope and pray that the remaining dogs at Rutland Manor are saved and given a wonderful, peaceful life. They certainly deserve it. Thank you, Kate. I wish you peace, healing and strength. You deserve it, too.

    Well now Bev, nice page on your website dedicated to Kate….Only problem is it is you who do the lying, over and over again…you who do the threats…..you who do the abusing of dogs….and now the last two supporters have seen the light, and no it wasn’t about the dogs in texas and you know it, it was all about what they witnessed while there in Australia, not one time but twice. I am sure as they got to know the real you it all unraveled now didn’t it……and now you are unravelling……She didn’t lie, she just didn’t see the first time…..remember you are a good con artist…..that’s why you kept copies of the WWSRM site isn’t it, just in case you needed to tar and feather another one of your supporters turned against you!! The problem is these ladies have nothing to gain by doing what they did…so really, who do you think we will all believe, YOU, Not a freakin chance in hell. So go on write and write and write ….We know you Bev, we know what you do and really it’s getting quite boring……The dogs are safe in Texas without you!! It’s just too bad they didn’t get them all.

    Today Bev’s website says:

    I can not blame anyone for feeling sorry for the dogs IF they actually DID live in these old buildings! But let common sense prevail for goodness sake. If you have not seen the video that Debra Tranter took during the dead of night, watch it here and then see how observant you were –

    1. Did you notice that the dogs had their shaggy faces neatly trimmed?

    2. Did you notice that as the dogs’ coats were ruffled by the intruder’s hands there were obviously no matts in their coats?

    3. Did you notice how friendly the dogs were, with cheerful wagging tails? Even though complete strangers had come in dead of night and shone flashlights in their faces and pointed cameras at them? Makes a joke out of Kate Pappas’ statement that the dogs were ‘cowering like wolves’ doesn’t it.

    4. Did you notice the bones on the floor? The dogs loved to get their good / night fresh meaty bone each night when they were put to bed.

    5. Did you notice the stains on the bricks and floors? Yes they are there, from the red soil that came in each night on the dogs’ paws and which has stained the bricks. BUT they have to have been outside playing in their paddocks in the daytime to bring in red dirt in the first place didn’t they. Look at the photos below of the boarding kennel pens and you’ll see the floor is concrete. IF the dogs lived in there, then there would be no red mud to stain the bricks would there.

    6. Did you notice that in the bedroom with the torn hammock bed there was no dog?

    7. Did you wonder why if it was so bad such pitiful sad music had to be attached to the video to stir the emotions more?

    8. Did you notice the discolored water in a water bowl? Yes so did I. If you have a Doodle you will already know how they love to paddle their feet in their water. I admit that I haven’t changed the water several times during the night, but fresh clean water was always provided several times during the DAY time and just before the dogs went to bed.

    I’m confused again, the web of lies is obviously very difficult to untangle. Do the dogs live in these concrete jail cells or do they not? She says at the beginning of her rant that they don’t. Then she goes on to say that the filthy bowl of water was just changed before they went to bed that night, and also points out to us the bones in their jail cells that were given that night. Hmmm.

    It must be hard to keep so many lies straight but come on Bev, you can do better than this. Next time think it through more so you don’t contradict yourself so much, at least you’ll make your lies less obvious.

    I love the part where she blames the music for making this all so sad, righto Bev, the sad music has tricked us into believing Rutland Manor is a disgusting hell hole. Get a grip woman.

      But last year on her website she denied everything, said that her dogs had been dragged from their “bedrooms” and put in those “cells” as a set up! Remember she also said Mask was “dragged by the throat”.
      She publishes information constantly, simply in reply to the latest evidence and she forgets what she has previously lied about.

      Let’s re-examine RMs comments:
      Today Bev’s website says:
      I can not blame anyone for feeling sorry for the dogs IF they actually DID live in these old buildings! But let common sense prevail for goodness sake. If you have not seen the video that Debra Tranter took during the dead of night, watch it here and then see how observant you were –

      THE DOGS DO LIVE THERE SO PEOPLE ARE SORRY FOR THEM. WE ARE OBSERVANT, VERY VERY VERY OBSERVANT.

      1. Did you notice that the dogs had their shaggy faces neatly trimmed?

      SHAGGY FACES PERIOD. NOT TRIMMED SHAGGY FACES.

      2. Did you notice that as the dogs’ coats were ruffled by the intruder’s hands there were obviously no matts in their coats?

      RUFFLED? NOTICE THE TENDRILS OF COAT STANDING STRAIGHT UP. WHY? BECAUSE UNDERNEATH WHAT THE PERSON IS STROKING IS A MATTRESS OF MATTS. NOTICE HOW ONE LEG OF THE WHITE DOG HAS ALREADY BEEN SHAVED DOWN. DIDN’T HAVE TIME BETWEEN CIGARETTES TO FINISH IT DID YOU BEVERLEY? AND BEVERLEY HERSELF STATES HOW PEOPLE WILL BRUSH ONLY THE TOPS OF THEIR DOODLES’ COATS LEAVING THE UNDERNEATH FULL OF MATS. SHE SAYS YOU HAVE TO GET DOWN TO THE SKIN AND BRUSH OUTWARDS…DIVIDE AND CONQUER THE MATS. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH HER RM DOGS. ONLY SHEEP SHEARING HELPS THOSE COATS.

      3. Did you notice how friendly the dogs were, with cheerful wagging tails? Even though complete strangers had come in dead of night and shone flashlights in their faces and pointed cameras at them? Makes a joke out of Kate Pappas’ statement that the dogs were ‘cowering like wolves’ doesn’t it.

      MAYBE NOT CROUCHING, BUT CERTAINLY THEY DIDN’T BOUNCE OUT OF THE PRISON CELL..IT TOOK SOME COAXING UNTIL THEY KNEW THERE WERE FRIENDLY, TENDER HANDS FOR SOME ACTUAL HUMAN TOUCH.

      4. Did you notice the bones on the floor? The dogs loved to get their good / night fresh meaty bone each night when they were put to bed.

      THERE WERE SEVERAL OBJECTS ON THE FLOORS. LOOKED LIKE OLD BONES OR POOP. ANYONE KNOWS YOU DON’T PUT A DOG UP IN A PRISON CELL OR KENNEL WITH A BONE AND NO SUPERVISION. I WONDER IF BEVERLEY AND HER STAFF KNOW CANINE CPR IN THE EVENT ONE OF THOSE UNSUPERVISED DOGS WITH BONES, CHOKES AND THEY’RE LUCKY TO FIND IT IN TIME.

      5. Did you notice the stains on the bricks and floors? Yes they are there, from the red soil that came in each night on the dogs’ paws and which has stained the bricks. BUT they have to have been outside playing in their paddocks in the daytime to bring in red dirt in the first place didn’t they. Look at the photos below of the boarding kennel pens and you’ll see the floor is concrete. IF the dogs lived in there, then there would be no red mud to stain the bricks would there.

      NO ISSUE WITH THE MUD. DOGS PLAY AND GET THINGS DIRTY. AS FOR THE UNSUSPECTING PEOPLE WHO BOARDED THEIR DOGS THERE, THEY HAD NO IDEA THAT THEIR DOGS STAYED IN THEIR PRISON CELLS AND YARDS AND WERE NEVER, EVER WALKED OR HAD TOYS OR ATTENTION. THEY DID GET CHEAP KIBBLE DUMPED INTO THEIR BOWLS. MAYBE THAT’S WHY SHE HAS NO PERMIT TO BOARD ANYMORE.

      6. Did you notice that in the bedroom with the torn hammock bed there was no dog?

      LUCKY DOG WHO ESCAPED THAT CELL. WHERE ARE ALL THE RAGGED HESSION SACKS THAT ARE SOMETIMES PUT ON TOP OF THE NASTY DIRTY BEDS.

      7. Did you wonder why if it was so bad such pitiful sad music had to be attached to the video to stir the emotions more?

      SAD MUSIC? IF THE DOGS HAD MUSIC LIKE THAT PLAYED FOR THEM AT NIGHT, WOULDN’T THAT IMPROVE THE LIVING CONDITIONS?

      8. Did you notice the discolored water in a water bowl? Yes so did I. If you have a Doodle you will already know how they love to paddle their feet in their water. I admit that I haven’t changed the water several times during the night, but fresh clean water was always provided several times during the DAY time and just before the dogs went to bed.

      HMMM….AFTER RUNNING AROUND ALL DAY ON RED CLAY DIRT, STEPPING IN THE POOP THAT DOESN’T GET PICKED UP AND SURELY THEY DON’T GET THEIR FEET WIPED OFF AT NIGHT, ONE WOULD THINK A DIFFERENT TYPE OF WATER DELIVERY SYSTEM WOULD BE PUT IN EACH CELL. THE KIND THAT RABBITS HAVE IN THER HUTCHES SO THE WATER STAYS CLEAN. BUT THAT WOULD MEAN SPENDING MONEY.

      THE SAD MUSIC AGAIN. YES IT’S HARD TO NOTICE THE POOR DOGS WITH THAT MUSIC BLARING. HA! TOO BAD THE SHIRE CAN’T REQUIRE BEVERLEY TO BUNK UP IN THOSE PRISON CELLS. BUT THERE ARE OTHER PRISON CELLS THAT COULD ACCOMMODATE HER.

    Hi everyone,
    I am interested in driving again after about a twenty year break. I have a sweet little welsh gelding, a sulky and harness and am looking for some driving fun in the West Gippsland Victoria area.

    I’d really appreciate someone getting in touch with me with some tips on where to start after all this time. I don’t know if this is of any interest, but I have 135 acres of lovely countryside near Warragul Victoria, and would love to host an activity day if wanted.

    Looking forward to some replies,
    Best wishes,
    Beverley
    This was the web site for welsh ponies

    There was also the quarter horses…. and we know about the breeding dogs such as shepherds and shitzu’s… then i found the website for hudsondoodles with an article by angela Rutland Manners in conjunction with Curtis Rist… and what has been breed gets even stranger…

    i would like to think that perhaps Bev has been misunderstood… but i dont think so
