the dog was wrong? Nope. The owner was wrong.

It looks like they attempted to sue pretty much everyone remotely involved with the issue try to get the entire staff of CORD fired.

Net result appears that most of the claims have no legal basis, and those that had even a remote legal basis were not accepted, although the judge didn't perceive the lawsuit(s) to be an abuse of process intended to 'intimidate' them.

They will have to pay legal costs as well.

Nothing changed in the posted case link as they lost entirely. The only thing they sought as a remedy for the dog was 'erase record completely'.

Here is a letter to the Kelowna Capital News and it says that
Diesel's court case is scheduled for Monday, Dec.17/12.
Lots of comments are at the end of the letter as well.
This whole ordeal that Diesel and his owner have gone through
makes me furious at RDCO dog control. This should not be happening
to this dog.

Column: Be accountable for your pet dogs

To the editor:

My name is Diesel. I’m a dog and I’ve been locked up in the Regional District of Central Okanagan’s dog pound since March 2011.

I don’t know why I’m here. All I remember is being attacked by another dog in my neighbourhood and defending myself. Ever since then, I’ve been locked up in a very small 5x7-ft cement pen for 23 1/2 hours a day, everyday, for 21 months. Did you know that 21 months is more than 12 years in human years?

My dad is allowed to visit me just once a week and for only 30 minutes. He always looks so worried. It’s hard for me to see him like that but I’m always so happy to see him despite his unhappiness. I love him so much.

Dad tells me that my regional district is taking me to court and if I lose, they will be putting me to sleep. I don’t know what that means but when he tells me that he looks very sad and starts to cry. But that’s when I love him even more. That’s what unconditional love is and loving him always brings me joy.

My dad says that the laws for dogs will be changing in my regional district and that all the regional directors have said they are happy with the changes. He says that they want their community to be known as a “pet-friendly” community. But if they want a pet-friendly community, why aren’t they friendly to me? Why are they making me and my dad, and so many others in their regional district so unhappy? Why isn’t their happiness unconditional and for everyone? Why doesn’t their happiness include dad and me?

Dad also told me that at their last board meeting the regional directors were all very pleased to hear their new rules would save them a lot of money. If saving lots of money pleases them, why are they spending so much money taking me to court?

I’ve asked my dad why I can’t go home to my family. Dad says that the regional directors can let me go home and that they can do that right now. But they haven’t. Why haven’t they? Even Gary Gibson, who has been a professional dog assessor for 35 years, says I’m not an aggressive dog. Why haven’t they listened to Gary Gibson? What have I done for them to keep me locked up for 21 months? I don’t understand.

I truly hope all the regional directors mean what they have said about making their regional district pet-friendly. I hope they weren’t just pretending. I hope they will find a place in their hearts for me and that they will act on their words.

With heartfelt thanks.

Diesel,

aka Al Vickers,

Okanagan Falls

Diesel’s court case is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. Donations can be made through the Bank of Montreal account # 0809 3976-657.
