Sassy at three years old

This is our little Sassy, short for Sasquach due to her unwillingness to acknowledge her people's personal space (i.e., our feet!) when she first joined us in July 2015.


Her kennel documents list April 19 as her birthday, and we can't do anything about that, so she shares that date with, among other events, Paul Revere's celebrated ride, the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto, the FBI's murder by fire of scores of religious zealots near Waco, Texas, and Timothy McVey's misguided act of retribution the following year in Oklahoma City.

Little matter... she's a terrific addition to our household.

Awwwwww, our Sassy is three!

"Misguided act of retribution?" How about an horrific act of domestic terrorism that killed hundreds; "even little babies" as our CIC would say?

I'm not defending McVey, but I "get" it! A year before, our Government, with the specific approval of Attorney General Janet Reno, murdered scores of civilians, including "little babies," while the entire nation watched on CNN. The year before that, those same FBI HRT agents shot a mother with an infant in her arms, to death in Idaho.

It was a time of great and understandable anger. The highly specialized HRT knew that an unarmed Vicki Weaver had a babe in arms, and knew that the Branch Davidian compound housed dozens of youth and children. It was never shown that McVey knew there was a day car center in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

McVeigh wasn't nuts, just as I said, misguided.
