THE STORY OF “LUKE”


Let me start this story by saying “Luke” is one of the biggest loves in my life.
He is my seventeen year old Blue Heeler that never caused me one ounce of distress. Bless his beautiful heart because he did not have a mean bone in his body. He did not chase anything, he did not have “accidents” in the house, he never chewed up the wrong items, he did not wander and he was not a barker. We were inseparable and if anyone knew me they also knew Luke.
Tragedy struck our love relationship on December 19th, 2005 when Government Officials saw fit to remove Luke off the couch and property purchased for him so he would have a place to live out his life. The last lead we had to Luke is when Mike Hanson traveled the State of Montana looking for him and found him in a Dog Shelter in Dillon, Montana. Luke’s mother Susie was there and his sister Scruffy. Mike inquired in to adopting the three but was only allowed to adopt Scruffy because she was dying. Scruffy has a lupus type disease and they were not giving her steroids so she would not have lasted but a couple more days. Mike was told by the Shelter Director the other two dogs were going out to North Dakota “to people who had more money than brains. They were going to be working dogs for the adopting party.” Mike stated that Luke was old and Susie was even older and this would be very cruel to do to two elderly dogs. Luke was born in 1993 so that makes him seventeen years old!! Luke has never shown any interest in herding any type of animal.
The Director of the Animal Shelter stated “our Veterinarian said “Luke” is only seven years old.” Mike replied ‘because that demonstrates the kind of care he has received all his life and we have the Veterinary records to prove it.’ The Director of the Dillon Animal Shelter became very rude and stated to take the other dog (Scruffy) and leave.
Scruffy on arrival home came running over to me for a big hug and when I picked her up I just sat down and sobbed. Scruffy had lost so much weight and she had sores all over her body. Picking her up was like picking up a piece of paper. We have the pictures to prove it. This is the status of a dog who is a little chow hound and would love to eat continuously.
A friend of mine also petitioned for the Dillon Shelter to release Luke to her. She was told to quit contacting the Shelter about Luke or the Director was going to file harassment charges.
The former owners of Luke have not stopped loving or missing him for five years now. They have engaged in constant legal battles with the hope of winning his return. We have not stopped the battle for Luke but we have spent every last penny on legal arguments for his return and to hold those accountable who ultimately caused his removal from his home of twelve years. The petitioners did most of the counter civil actions pro se. They now have met a renowned attorney who is willing to look at representing the case but it will be costly. Needless to say Luke is worth a million dollars to his owners and they would be willing to pay that for his return. Sadly, his owners at this point in the battle need to ask for donations in order to get an attorney on board who will represent Luke’s best interest.
If anyone is interested in donating to help locate Luke and petitioning for his return to his true owners please contact;

The goal is 250 people who are willing to help with $10.00 for the $2,500.00 attorney retention fee. Thank you very much for the time and consideration.

I’ve been in sales for the past seven years and had been making more money then I’ve ever made in my life and I had quite a bit of money in savings. About four years ago I took the big plunge and purchased a home out in the country and I feared I took on more then I could handle. I’ve worked very hard to improve my credit score and in fact it got so good I could get financing on almost anything my Wife and I needed. I work strictly commission and the company I work for sold eighteen months ago and every since that happen the new owner has been cheating most of his sales staff on commission’s so My Wife and I have been living on our saving’s up till last month when that was depleted.

My Home notes are $1,997.00 a month and not to mention all our other bills; I’ve never asked for help in my life until now and I just don’t know what to do at this point with out help; I feel really small for asking.

I know the question comes up in you’re mind if he was making such good money where is it? (Answer) My Wife has been a heart patient since the age of 21 and she’s now 52 living on 25% of her heart. She’s had a pacemaker then she was upgraded to a defibrillator that had a recall on it so they replaced it and when they did she had a stroke which left her paralyzed on half of her body and by the grace of God she recovered. My poor Wife has had to many heath problems to list but anyway a lot of money go’s on hospital bills.

Any Donations would be so appreciated

 in response to bearer...   bearer's, Although this can be flustrating trying so many places. I can suggest you trying social services in your city. If they will not help you, the local Catholic, and Baptist churches they are also a great resource. Are you new here on Aidpage? If so, we welcome you to our BIG family. We care about everyone, and we try to help by suggesting places to go for help. We hope oyu keep us posted and we hope you visit often. Have a wonderful day and be safe!! God Bless, sandra35

My friend is poor and she wants to go on a trip with us to Disney World. We thought that we would be able to take her because we thought we would have our tax return already. Unfortunately, we didn`t get it because they are not taking Itemized returns until the 14 of February. So basically we only have enough money to go ourselves, me, mom and my dad. We have asked people for help, and thet declined. My friend`s father is broke, and her mother is very sick.. Help

Dear Aidmates, 
 
We appreciate you concern for Nini3. This only shows that Aidpage creates durable friendships. And we can't be but happy about this. 
 
However, in this case, we made our mind... and our decision is final. 
 
It wasn't easy for us to take that decision. We considered some action about Nini3 for quite some time. We will not disclose the details and the specific reasons. Please, consider the self-evident fact that we don't have any interest in removing an active member from Aidpage.
 
Best,

 in response to susie's son...   Reply to Susies's Son and Freindshelpingfriends:---I would like to put my own 2 cents in your list of who is missing our Niink, it seems that whenever the Lord starts realy using her and her wisdom that Satan puts roadblocks in her way. But I do have an idea, what do you two thik about writn g a petiition and see how many aidmates we can get to sign it to get Nini back. The APT are very fair people and I'm sure they have ahat they thought was evidence enought to aske her to leave but If we aske her not to bring up any of the stuff that APT found so objectionable then maybe...just maybe they would let her back on. All we can do is try folks and I say let's DO IT OK? let me know how yu feel. It's just that little Nini has helped so many people and not just by posting them either so i know she can get a lot of votes. So, gang le me know is you want me to write a letter or one of you write it. love you to the moon mamashe/sheila
