Alison McElwee: 3 bites = Tammy’s death?

In Uncategorized on 30/10/2013 at 4:48 am

(Update Update 17th February 2014:Sun T reported that peace broke out between the warring harridans with FT admitting that re-homing would have been better option. Tammy’s still dead. Implicitly she admits lying that she lied that other lady didn’t want to take dog back?)

Update on 20th November 2013: ST says Alison McElwee is British)

Ms Alison McElwee adopted a stray dog under the conditions that if there were any problems, she would be returned to the re-homer, Ada Ong.

She shortly thereafter put it down. ST reported:  A woman who had her seven- month-old mongrel Tammy put down for aggression has defended her decision, claiming the person she got it from did not want to take it back.

Ms Alison McElwee, who was criticised for ignoring the rehomer’s pleas to return it, said in a statement: “The rehomer suggested placing (Tammy) in a long- term boarding home” and “did not want to take (it) back”.

But ST wrote: “her [Alison McElwee’s] text messages tell different story.”

This was double-confirmed by a minister, no less. Last Thurs I read that the Minister of Law (a dog and cat lover*) wrote on Facebook, Ada told me that she made clear to Tammy’s adopter in subsequent conversations that Ada was prepared to take back Tammy. Ada also showed me the SMS exchanges between the adopter and herself, which seems to bear out what Ada says. I have given Ada my views on the contract, and have suggested to her that she should get a lawyer to pursue this matter. She asked me for help and I have suggested a lawyer to her who will help her pro bono. There could be other fees, expenses – Louis ( from Acres) who was in the conversation, has said that the money will be raised if necessary.

What angers me is that she didn’t take advantage of the offer, preferring to spend money killing the dog. Could it be vengeance?

ST report, “She alleged that Tammy bit her four-year-old daughter and two adults.” She could have believed in an extreme variation of ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”.

What further angered me is that she tot she could lie her way out of trouble.

If I were one of those so-called xenophobes, I should be ranting, “What now ang moh? Think you tua kee? Can suka suka kill a local dog with impunity? And lie about it? Think S’poreans no understand English and don’t know to store text messages?” “Home Team will be their usual ang moh tua kee and allow you to give S’poreans the bird.” Remember the Suntec case?

But I’m no xenophobe. There is the possibility that the alleged attacks caused severe wounds that indicated that Tammy was a dangerous puppy. There was a newspaper report that Tammy was pretty hostile at the vet, though one can understand why. Dogs know when they are in danger.

And she, like Tammy, could be a local. Names can be deceiving, especialli in multicultural S’pore. I tot GIC’s PR flack and Tony Tan’s campaign helper was ang moh. Turns out she’s local, a Eurasian: one of those whose families didn’t flee to Perth (and other ang moh places) when S’pore became self-governing, and then independent.. Nope, Alison McElwee is probably juz trash of the worse kind, white, black, brown, yellow, purple or green. Hopefully, Tammy will get her revenge, as God visits “the iniquity of the fathers mothers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth.”

BTW, I don’t think anyone should flame AVA, or the vets involved. They can’t be expected to vet every request of an owner to kill a dog. Owners too have rights and obligations. And sadly, vicious dogs have to be put down to protect humans.

I have strong views on adopting dogs. Once a dog is adopted by me, it becomes part of the family. It never gets “unadopted”. I even have problems with people who give away their dogs because the dogs are unruly. And I practice what I preach. One of my two dogs was “forced” on me (had to take both), and was problematic: uncivilised and suffering from ailments. Turned out to be sweet, gentle, unlike her hyper but handsome “brudder”.

Finally, this case like that of new citizen Raj (the guy who boasts that his son will avoid NS and still be a PR) gives bad PR to the govt’s policy of letting in the FTs. She (assuming she is a FT) and new citizen Raj don’t give a damn that they are saboing the S’pore govt. Now that’s gratitude! No, LKY, it’s not the voters of Aljunied who will repent. It will be the PAP who will repent that it favours foreigners, not S’poreans, and allows them to flood in with no or very little QC.

One final tot. How come no follow-up story, now that the law minister minister has spoken. Surely ST should be asking Alison McElwee for her response? As I said, maybe, juz maybe, Tammy was too vicious and dangerous, and Alison tot she had to protect us S’poreans against doggie do-gooders like Ada Ong (“Dogs always tua kee”). And, if she refused to comment, we should be told. Or is ST practicising constructive, nation-building censorship? Not wanting to stir S’poreans against FTs?

If so, this wouldn’t be the first time. Remember the F1 SMRT driver, and another driver involved in a bad accident. S’poreans had to find out from social media that they were PRC FTs.

*I had tot that dog and cat lovers were the equivalents of bi-sexuals. But my friend Siow Kum Hong, he and his wife own both dogs and cats, assures me that such people are “not uncommon”.

  1. Sorry,I think everyone should flame AVA,for failure to keep the people well informed about the current violent eruption of Taiwanese people anger with Black heart tainted cooking oil makers scandal ,according to one big BH maker,at first they claimed all tainted oil were exported to Singapore,then Taiwanese free media checked and found only about 65% were exported,mainly to Spore which will cause 断子絶孙 “die son/daughter less”
    Flavor Full Executive Vice President Lin Hsiu-jung reiterated that the crude cottonseed oil the company imported was used in the production of refined oil ordered by clients in Singapore.
    Edible oil maker dragged unwittingly into scandal

  3. Haven’t anyone heard of doggie kindergarten for socializing puppies? Or Cesar Milan? I suspect the puppy was ill treated and therefore just exercising natural survival instinct. My Cane Corso when a puppy was mishandled by some kids and it took me a long long time to rehabilitate him to be sociable with children as he grew to fear and dislkei them. She should be banned worldwide from ever owing animals. Highlight her case in her home country and I am sure the animal activists will bray for her blood. Likewise the vet, whose alma mater will probably give a harsh reprimand. As for AVA, I always have had a zero regard for them.

  4. This case will demonstrate whether the govt thinks ang moh tua kee!

  5. Well i would like to offer a different perspective. If u’ve ever met this ada ong, she comes across as this sinewy, unbalanced individual… probably never had a bf before n incapable of a relationship with man. So she uses the dogs to balance her life, which is quite pathetic really . Im surprised animal lovers league would use her as a adoption point of contact, they really do hv lovely dogs but i would recommend they use a more normalised individual to promote their dogs really …. this ada ong is a to put it mildly almost crazy and pitiful …

    • I don’t doubt you. Animal activists can be looney. I have friend who had dog taken back after trial period because dog was looking unhappy. Three weeks later, the rehomer offered her the dog again. Friend like me has cared for dogs for over 30 yrs.

      But the published facts speak for themselves.
