Rescued Is My Favorite Breed #AdoptDontShop #PawsUp4RescuePets

Holly Briley

Statistics show that approximately 7 million animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Approximately 2.7 million of them are euthanized.

That is 2.7 million animals who did not ask to be born, did nothing more than become unwanted, unusable,  or in some cases abused and neglected at the hands of their humans. Animals that if given the chance could be wonderful additions to the right family.

While I have always believed in adopting a pet versus shopping for a pet,and statistics aside, there is a more personal reason why I am so passionate about this issue.

A few years ago I was diagnosed with some pretty serious health issues which seemingly overnight robbed me of much of my life as I knew it. I went from being an active participant in many things, including the work which I loved to someone who at times couldn’t get out of bed because of pain, or if I did get up, had to return soon because of the pain.

To make matters worse, it was Winter. If you’ve ever experienced Winter “up North” you know the sun is rare and sitting out in it for any period of time isn’t always a possibility. So even on the days I felt good, I was pretty much stuck in the house with nothing but time to think on my hands.

To say I was in a bad place emotionally would be an understatement.

Then it happened. The little miracle I wasn’t expecting.

Sitting in the house with my husband one night during a pretty bad Winter snow storm we got a knock at the door. It was a little girl who at the time lived next door.

In her hands she had a tiny little Chihuahua dog who was shaking and covered in snow. This little dog had been tossed out by her owner .. a breeder who lived up the street from us. She was thrown out because he couldn’t use her for breeding due to her having a Luxating Patella. Since she couldn’t make him money, she was of no use to him.

After verifying all of this, the husband and I took her in. Her coat was dull and brittle, she wasnt house broken, had no idea what a toy was or how to play with one, and she was terrified of a water and food bowl.

The next several weeks were spent teaching her, hand feeding and watering her until little by little she got accustomed to eating from her food dish. She got her first toy and took to playing with it like a champ. She continued to thrive in every way and the luxating patella not withstanding, the vet gave her a clean bill of heath.

While caring for and teaching her, a funny thing happened to me. I stopped obsessing about my own health problems, started feeling hope and looking forward to the future. I still had some problems but they were no longer the first thing I thought of when I woke up or the last thing I thought of before I fell asleep at night.

I had another reason for ‘being’ and to keep on keeping on, and that reason’s name is Coco Mae Briley.

Since rescuing Coco we have added to our fur family, and often joke that we’re one furbaby short of being a petting zoo.

While I love each and every one of our furbabies, and they are all spoiled rotten, Coco will always hold a very special place in my heart.

When she came to us, she needed saving. In the end though, she saved me more than she will ever know.

City Girls Should Not Go Camping

I was recently reminded of an event that happened not long after we moved to Ohio. I need to preface this by saying that my husband (who was raised in the country) has always calls me a “city girl.”

Not too long after we moved to Ohio we purchased a pop-up camper and decided to go camping.

Up until this time I only had one camping experience, when I went to sleep-away camp as a child. When we arrived there it was announced the “first years” duty was to clean the bathrooms. The bathrooms that were merely outhouses equipped for more than 2 people at a time. I took one look at that, called my dad to come get me.. and I never looked back.

Fast forward to the day the husband and I decided to go camping. Oh, the pop-up camper was nice enough, air conditioner, stove, fridge, pretty much all the amenities of home except for one important thing – no bathroom.

The husband said that was easily solved and we proceeded to pick out a very nice campsite in a state park, that was directly across the little path from the bathrooms. No problem, I thought. . .That’s what I get for thinking.

We had a very nice evening, settled in and went to sleep.

Well .. it happened. I woke up in the middle of the night and had to go to the bathroom. Any woman of a “certain age” whose ever had a child will tell you, when that urge hits, it cannot be ignored.

I was going to wake up my husband to walk with me to the bathroom, but thought – its only across that path and the path is lite.. so off I went.

When I got there the lights inside, got set down, the lights were flickering bright to dim, one light was out which only added to the overall spooky effect.

I immediately thought to myself – this is how every single horror movie starts out – a woman, in the bathroom alone .. in the middle of the night.

Then I heard it. A howling. Then another howling, then another and I swore they were coming closer and closer to me.

That did it!

I cut it off in midstream and took off back to the camper, and by took off, I mean I ran! Pants half pulled up, ass cheeks flapping in the wind and giving any other campers who happened to be awake and looking – a second full moon of the night.

As I lay in the camper the rest of the night listening to every single sound of nature outside and trying desperately not to pee the bed, one thing kept going through my mind.

. . . . . . City girls should not go camping.

 

Deric And Jennifer Lostutter – And The Grift Goes On

Unless you’re new here you’re probably already aware of the fact that Deric Lostutter aka KYAnoymous was remanded into Federal Custody yesterday, one month early, for violating terms of his release.

One would think that this would be the end (at least for now) to the Deric Lostutter saga. But as with anything related to this man, it only leads to more questions and a trip farther down the rabbit hole.

Late yesterday evening Deric’s wife, Jennifer took to his blog and posted a “whoa is Deric” blog post. You can read the entire blog here in this screenshot if you don’t feel like going to it directly and run the possibility of viruses, etc.

In this post she alleges the government “forcibly kidnapping” her husband for her exercising her  free speech and supporting her husband.

She also brings up (more than once) the blog, her Instagram, etc is outside the jurisdiction of Kentucky. What she fails to, or refuses to understand is – Deric could have been in a spaceship on the planet Mars and he would have still been in violation. State jurisdiction has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

But the thing that struck me the most is the selfie picture she posted of Deric supposedly at work on his “construction job” on a cell phone that he may or may not have been permitted to have.

Wait. Job?

This raises even more questions, especially in light of the fact that he recently filed appeal papers (pro-se) for his federal sentence, and when he filed he filed  to appeal Forma Pauperis .

You can read the filing in full here. I’ll be breaking down key points below.

In the section in which he had to list employers (most recent employer first) he lists his last job as TGI Fridays – ending in February 2017.

In the financial part of the appeal for Forma Pauperis, he puts zero as the amount they receive in gifts How can they claim zero when he currently runs a GoFund Me account he tags as as being “on behalf of Jennifer Lostutter,” and as his “bill fund?”

A GoFund Me account that as of yesterday showed a total of $13,753.00 available. Fund is archived here.

This does not include the other many donation funds he has created and received money from in the past two plus years. None of this money was disclosed.

This brings us to another point. In this paperwork it asks who else in the household relies on he and his wife for support. Deric lists his step-son .. who he nor she have physical custody of and who in fact Jenny is in arrears for in the child support she is to pay to the parties who have custody of him.

Now, before you ask how I can be certain she does not have custody? Well beyond the fact of the court proceedings of a few years back in which she lost custody – she as much as says so in the below IG post she made two days ago when she states it was a nice week with the kids and she’s always glad when she can have them together.

So .. you’re behind in child support – do not have physical custody of said child, yet leads court to believe he is with you?

He goes on to affirm that he is the sole provider as his wife is “unable to work”

She is unable to work, yet here she is on the blog post she wrote, begging for money to offset bills while she works to support their child.

While her working status is something for the courts do determine if and when the time is right – but one thing is for certain – she’s already “working” full time at begging the public for a living. .. just like Deric taught her.

All of this brings me to my point, and that point is – How can someone who has over at least twelve thousand dollars at their disposal, maybe more when all the other begging accounts are factored in (not to mention had a construction job they “forgot” to mention in their paperwork) be considered indigent and unable to pay his legal fees for a an appeal he (as part of his plea agreement) swore NOT to file?

UPDATE:
Jenny has now gone full Deric and started to beg for her and her child’s living claiming all other funds raised on the above archived GoFund Me account has gone to “legal defense,” never mind the legal defense is a separate funding account, run by his defense attorney, Tor Eckeland.

BREAKING: Deric Lostutter aka KYAnonymous Taken Into Federal Custody

Today during a federal violation hearing it was determined that Deric Lostutter had indeed violated the terms of his release.

With this determination he was immediately taken into custody early.

He was previously set to surrender himself to prison on May 18, 2017.

Had Deric not spent his last few weeks of freedom attempting to intimidate others including a high profile South Florida lawyer, or flipping the bird for Instagram, he may have had these last few days to spend with his baby daughter.

Instead he chose to once again thumb his nose at the courts and the orders set forth for him.

Typical Deric is typical.

  • This story is developing and will be updated as more information is received.

UPDATE:
According to William K Murtaugh who was in the courtroom the judge was very unhappy with Deric. When he asked defense attorney what could be done to keep Deric from further violating if released today, defense could offer no reasonable solution.
Judge also went on to predict (that) Deric would violate terms of release within one month of being released from prison.

In keeping in true Deric fashion, he allowed his attorney to throw his own wife under the bus by allowing him to argue that Deric had no idea she was posting videos or pictures of him online. . . never mind the fact these were on Instagram which posts automatically to the internet.

Defense also argued that this was an attempt by Alexandria Goddard to somehow sink the civil case against her. The judge was having none of it and basically made it known that he didn’t care what others had done – Deric did not have to do what he did and his flipping the bird to the camera was basically an attempt to intimidate others. The judge went on to call Deric and bully, going on to say he liked to threaten others.

More updates to come …

UPDATE:

Deric has been booked into the Grayson County, Kentucky jail awaiting his placement in a Federal Facility.

 

 

 

And Then This Happened

Someone once told me I had the most dedicated trolls ever. Today after seeing the below comment that was left on a previous blog post I’d done, I have to say … I believe they were right.

It came from a TOR browser because all trolls and cowards just love them some anonymity.

Now we all know The Lostutters have the combined IQ of a bag of used G-Stings, and I cant prove either one of them left this comment because .. dedicated trolls. But then again, stranger things have happened.

Let’s face it – neither of them have much regard for court orders, laws or rules.

And Speaking Of Violations – Is This A Beer Deric Lostutter Is Drinking?

According to Deric Lostutter’s original and most recent terms of release he is not to be consuming alcoholic beverages of any kind.

Yet in this picture on his wife’s Instagram, he can be seen with a glass of Chimay beer in front of him as he holds his infant daughter. Original archived HERE.

As you can see the picture it was taken well before his sentencing but after his original release orders.

Once again – Deric thumbing his nose at the courts and rules?

I just hope Jenny drove home after this outing, because we all know, based on Deric’s self admitted issues with alcohol, he cant just stop at one.

 

Breaking: Deric Lostutter Violates Terms Of Release Yet Continues To Target And Harass Others

Late yesterday in a series of legal filings it was ruled that Deric Lostutter may very well be in violation of his terms of release and in fact a court hearing has (now) been set for April 13, 2017 in Lexington, Kentucky to determine if he did indeed violate. If it it deemed that he did, he will be immediately. See below for copy if the filings. Click on each image to enlarge if needed.

As this started to happen he his wife, Jenny Lostutter took to their Twitter and began to target anyone who had ever written about or voiced non-support of him and his plight.

The account and its tweets has been archived HERE in the event s/he should decide to clean house and delete these harassment tweets.

They especially targeted and attempted to intimidate South Florida Attorney, Kim Picazio.

In the tweets to and about Ms. Picazio they accused her and others of “revenge porn” and of releasing the online pornography that she and Deric engaged in (for money) on the adult site, Chaturbate.

It should be noted here that she and Deric willingly engaged in online pornography knowing full well it would be seen by others as evidenced by their aggressive advertisement of their activities. Mr Lostutter even did an interview in which he admits to these activities and advertises the website where they  could be viewed.  In this interview he is quoted as saying (among other things)
“If we’re doing it for free anyway and we’re having fun doing it and people are paying to watch it then why not if it’ll help out with a bill here and there?” Adding, “We do it because we like to do it,” he said. “But if it makes money, it makes money.”
They even put up a Chaturbate profile in which they advertised their sexual proclivities. They were so proud of their “productions”, they uploaded the  images to here. *Adult Images*

Further threats were lobbied at Ms Picazio by them in the form of threats to report her to the Florida Bar Association.

In these threats Jenny Lostutter released (in the form of screen shots) a confidential email between Ms. Picazio and Daniel Daniel Gibson, Esq., the attorney defending Alexandria Goddard and Thomas Olsen in the civil suit filed against them by Deric. Exactly how she obtained these confidential emails remains a mystery. And, while I will not post them on this blog, I do have copies if authorities need to see them.

Another favorite “Deric tactic” is to subtlety let others know, that he knows where they live. Last night was no different as this tactic was used once again…this time by dropping another Twitter users location. A Twitter user who I might add has also been outspoken in his nonsupport of Deric.

It’s patently clear that Deric has no regard for law and rules and even when he is standing in the face of being violated and sent to prison early, he has no intent in stopping the very behavior that got him to where he is today – a convicted felon.

So, in the end if he does indeed get violated and goes to prison early .. he has no one but himself to blame.

 

Deric Lostutter: Intimidation By Proxy – Again

By now pretty much everyone who has been following along knows that Deric Lostutter has initiated a SLAPP Suit against blogger, Alexandria Goddard as well as Thomas Olsen for one million dollars in a federal civil lawsuit because they hurt his feels. Until recently he was also including Michelle McKee  formerly of Gig Harbor, Washington, now residing in Georgia, on this suit, but mysteriously she has been dropped from this suit.

Now you would think someone who is trying to convince the powers that be he is being negatively impacted by Ms. Goddard and Mr. Olsen would be keen to tow the line and be sure he (and his mouthpiece wife, Jenny Lostutter) wasn’t engaging in the same activities he is accusing them of.

You would think. But, as we’ve all come to know – he and apparently his wife – think that they are above the law and rules they impose on others somehow doent apply to them.

This is evidenced by a tweet his wife tweeted today, which is a direct shot at Ms. Goddard.

Claiming to be a victim then turning around and victimizing others isnt a good look on anyone .. especially if they are crying “poor me” to a court of law.

Deric Lostutter – Maybe You Should Have Called BatCat

I wasn’t going to blog this because I have no definitive proof, but I’m also not one that put much stock into coincidences. But after today and my finding out that another blog that has been blogging about Deric got hacked and the fact that someone tried to access the owner’s email, I felt I needed to share this information.

If youve been reading this blog you’ll know that Deric and his wife engaged in some intimidation by proxy with me.

Not too long after this happened and I blogged about it, I got several emails stating that a few of my social media accounts had been frozen due to repeated attempts to access them through the password reset option. Doesn’t that sound familiar?

I also got an alert that someone tried to get into my email via a proxy from The Netherlands: IP: 134.19.181.29. Coincidentally or not, an IP from The Netherlands also attempted to get into the email of the above linked blogger whose blog got hacked.

I have no idea why the attempted access to my Linkedin except for the fact that they thought it might hold the information about a current employer, and we all know how Deric loved to contact them.

While I’d be hard pressed to prove in a court of law Deric was behind these attempts.. its pretty coincidental this all happened after I blogged about him.

Yepp.. should have called BatCat.

This is Deric Lostutter “Not” Using The Internet

According to Deric Lostutter’s Final Judgement Order (page 5 section 12) handed down by the Federal Courts he is not to be using the internet or computer’s for any reason – most especially to threaten, harass, or intimidate others.

He and his wife, Jennifer Lostutter have acknowledged such in a recent video she posted on “her” Free Deric Lostutter Twitter account.

So, imagine my surprise when I get the below screenshot this morning in my messages. A screenshot from her Instagram account from 16 hrs ago, which puts it well after the orders and acknowledgements of them.

Maybe he just wanted to send a message to all of their “supporters” or maybe, as always, he feels he is above the law and court orders?

Maybe she does too.

UPDATE 4/6/2017:

The intimidation continues as evidenced by the tweets “Jenny” decided to direct at several individuals last night.
This is evidenced by her tweets about people with “snakes in their hair.” It is a pretty well known fact that Attorney, Kim Picazio of South Florida uses a Medusa avatar on her personal Twitter account called Medusa_TheGreat.

Then there is the matter of her tweets to William K. Murtaugh, the blogger who covered the sentencing hearing and has blogged extensively on Deric’s case.

Below is a snippet of the threats. The entire conversation can be found on the Twitter account FREEDERICLOSTUTTER beginning at approximately 9:34 PM on 5 Apr 2017.

For people who claim to want to be left alone, they certainly go out of their way to target anyone who doesnt support the false narrative they continue to try to push.
