Jessica Simpson, having given up the search for her Malti-poo, says on her Twitter page that she doesn’t appreciate the false information her loved ones have received from pranksters claiming Daisy is alive.
The five-year-old dog was taken by a coyote last month.
“People have been contacting my family and friends saying that Daisy has been found. Untrue. People are so cruel. please respect her memory.”
Daisy was a gift from ex-husband Nick Lachey. The dog was dragged from its back yard in Los Angeles by a coyote in mid-September.
Simpson, who was recently in Morocco filming her VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty, has more than 1.6 million followers on Twitter, where she regularly posts her doings, thoughts and epiphanies, including this recent dispatch:
“On my last day in Morocco i have finally learned it is spelled with 2 c’s and not and 2 r’s. i am a dweb!! i mean REALLY?!?!”
The Oregon man who used a hammer to try to euthanize his daughter’s dog, then buried it alive, has been sentenced to 120 days in jail for misdemeanor animal abuse.
Hyrum Long, 75, of Forest Grove, said Tuesday he was trying to euthanize the dog in October when he hit it on the head with a hammer and buried it up to its neck. The dog, named Molly, was rescued by police but later euthanized by a veterinarian because of injuries and apparent long-term neglect.
Judge Rick Knapp called the situation “appalling” and told Long what he had done was “monstrous and barbaric.” Long, according to the Associated Press, also was sentenced to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service.
