Power of Prayer is

greatly needed for a fellow bulldogger in Arkansas.  I'm not sure if Margie Foley ever frequented the boards but her and her bulldogs need many prayers this day. 

This is what happened:

A fellow bulldogger's home was broken into this morning, and her dogs were doused with gasoline, then lit on fire.

I have also heard that the house was doused and set on fire and the bulldogs were just there.  It doesn't really matter.  There are 8 bulldogs, 3 in critical condition. The photos are horrific, brought me to tears, I will not share those.

The monetary help has poured in so they don't needed any additional donations, per the vet clinic FB page.  BUT please pray for these dogs and Margie.

those pics made me sob.  I hope her bullies will recover and that dispicable person will pay for what they did.  Prayers going out.

So heartbreaking.....

I just can't come to terms with this story.....why?  What makes someone do something like this?  My heart breaks for the family and all I can think of is the unecessary pain the family & those poor dogs are going through.

I pray they catch who did this.....just awful.

I've been obsessively

I've been obsessively stalking FB waiting for updates on this story.  It breaks my heart and hurts my soul that someone was capable of doing this.

The only positive is the incredible generosity (their chipin is already over $8000.....not to mention was donated directly to the vet's office) and love and support that the fellow bulldog lovers have shared.

Horrible day.

Horrible

I always find it hard to believe that there are people like this out in the world.  I hope they find who did this and they get a huge amount of time in jail.  I am sending prayers the family and bulldogs way.

Any updates on the dogs conditions?

Or the investigation into who did this?  I certainly hope there's a reward out.

Hmm, not sure what to say about this

can't come up with an appropriate response or at least one that can be posted here.

Tons of prayers for Margie, her family and especially the dogs. My heart breaks for the dogs, the pain must be unbearable.

Update from Margie

 

This is the latest update I've found from Margie:

Not very encouraging news for Obie & Bebe , they have a call into a burn specialist in Memphis . Bebe is in an oxy tent and just had a second dose of steroid . Her breathing is not good and Obie isnt much better . We are devastated , please pray for us to make the right choices . i do not want them suffering

CathyandZimmer's picture

My heart breaks for her...

I looked at her pictures on her FB page, all of her bullies are beautiful. I saw a picture of Obie.  Sending prayers to all.

everytime i read the post...tears won't stop...

whoever did this deserves to be punished to the fullest extent-it is beyond 

horrific....positive thoughts n prayers sent to all the bullies suffering from this

tragedy esp obie n bebe...i saw the pics on fb....they are beauties

Deb and MacKenzie and Ester's picture

Obie & Bebe have gone to The Bridge :'(

and are no longer suffering.  My heart just breaks for Margie, Obie, Bebe and the other dogs.  I just can't imagine what they were thinking and how terrified they must have been.  I will have nightmares, I already have bad dreams sometimes and they almost always have one of my kids in them, in some kind of distress.  It's just so horrible beyond comprehension. 

There is talk of using the additional funds raised to help with a reward for catching this murderer and arsonist, so if you want to chip in monitarily it will go to a good cause.

Such a sad day.

How so very sad.

My heart goes out to all of them

I just don't get it

It just blows my mind that anyone could hurt another being like this.  Those babies could not even defend theirselves.  What is wrong with people?  I hope what goes around comes around.  Karma to them...

Karma?

Karma? Hope these evil socialpaths are cought and get put in solitary, in the dark, for the next 60 years. They are evil, and I seldom use this term. Death is too good for them.

My heart hurts for the dogs and for their families.

How sad.

It makes me so upset to imagine how those poor dogs felt and how scared they must have been.  I guess it is better now that they're not suffering but still so terribly sad and tragic. I will keep the family in my thoughts.

My deepest condolences to Margie.

What a horrible tragedy. Another reason I like my animals more than I like people...animals don't set each other on fire.

My heart goes out to Margie.

"ALLEGED" ARSON???

Deb and MacKenzie and Ester's picture

Legalities

You know Miriam...they have to put alleged, until proven in court.  Let's hope they have enough evidence to convict these people.  The latest info I have heard is they suspect the home owner, landlord set the fire.  The Foley's were renting the home.  Just beyond belief.  There are 5 dogs I believe with differing dgrees of burns, one not out of the woods with bad burns to the head and face.  We all know how painful burns are, I just can't imagine.
