Hello Haters

Hello Haters. I know you’re reading this… as you always do. There are 2 of you in particular, who have the same hateful, useless goal in common: putting all of your energy into ruining my life. Well hey there, non-friends.
Welcome to MY blog, AGAIN.

One of you is reading this at your office, as you do every single freaking day. You bitch to your co-workers (who inform me of this) about how much you hate my blog… AS YOU SIT THERE READING IT. I’d like to provide you with this shocking piece of information: No one makes you come here. I’d actually prefer if you’d go away. Don’t you understand that by purposely coming to my blog... then complaining about how much you despise me and my posts... you seem pretty ridiculous? But I guess you’re used to that???

The other hater is reading from home, where you sit and obsess about every single thing I do, all day, every day. You’ve been blocked from my facebook page, but you still study my every move on my blog and my fan pages, and write hateful comments. Then, you use all of the hatred in your soul to try and TAKE FROM ME. How’s that working out for you? Have you gained more supporters from your negative behavior? Remember this: Hatred rarely works in one’s favor. Why don’t you try, just for ONCE in your life, to do something positive that doesn’t hurt someone else?

I’m going to let you haters in on a little secret: Good-hearted, successful people DO NOT take from others to get where they are in life. Good people GIVE. When you try to gain by taking from others, you end up with no friends, no respect, and no life. Maybe you’ve both been very effective here??

Anything I’ve accomplished in my life has been a direct result of me busting my ass to get there. I didn’t TAKE FROM OTHERS to get where I am… I gave of myself, time and time again. Maybe you should try that. If both of you put even half of the worthless energy you waste on ruining me ... toward something more positive, maybe you wouldn’t be so miserable… and the world just might be a better place.

You each spend enormous amounts of time slandering my reputation, my business, and my rescue dogs. You wanna take from me? Fine. But you take from my dogs… I’ve got a real freaking problem with you. Those dogs have been through enough, and they've done NOTHING to you. Get a life, and stop taking from their’s. How dare you.

In addition, you continue to contact my best friends to try and bash me?! And you seriously think they aren’t going to tell me about this?! Why don’t you just call my freaking mom and talk crap about me? I’m sure she can’t wait to hear from you. She'd be ever-so touched.

Here’s some advice for all the haters: If you want something to happen for you, MAKE IT HAPPEN. Trying to take from others for your own gain will get you nowhere. I have never tried to take from anyone for my own benefit, and I never will. While you haters put all of your energy into plotting my demise, I put my energy toward saving lives.

And please, DO keep bashing me. The last time you berated me on MY blog, American Dog Magazine saw your ridiculous words... and gave me a freaking 2-page spread in the summer issue! Wow! Thank you, haters! You’re negativity seems to bring even more good things into my life... because I am a GOOD PERSON.
                                                                                                                        
One last note: My life is MY life. Your life, is apparently so boring, that your jealousy drives you to live through me. From now on, focus on yourself. You should write that on your hand and look at it every day. Yet, I doubt it would change much.

You're just mean people... and mean people suck.

This is the last bit of energy I will waste on you. GOODBYE.

  2. Tell me about it. Especially not these 2. Actually, there's a 3rd now who is all buddy-buddy with the other 2 and messaging all of my friends. It's really lame & sad. Get your own friends. Mine do not like you ;)

  4. Good for you Ashley!!!! Haters are just jealous and they live in their own misery day by day and all they want is to bring everyone down with them. Keep doing what you are doing because there are so many pieces of crap walking this earth who contribute nothing to society! You have a heart and good soul and that is all that matters in life! What comes around, goes around!!!

  5. Seriously??? I cannot believe that ANYONE could ever say anything bad about you!!! I read your blogs and cry my eyes out hoping to one day be more like you. You are one of my heroes.

  6. how anyone could possibly hate you when you do such good things for those poor dogs is a mystery!

  10. I am a huge fan of yours the work you do is amazing! I believe it takes one person to change this earth and then others will follow - Your FB inspired me and I began doing local volunteer work at shelters! Thank you for that! When I saw this blog today I felt sad it’s too bad jealousy is even an emotion because its useless - and its too bad others hate seeing people succeed around them! I hope I can suggest this too you but from life experience the more energy you put into someone who is a hater the more they feed off it and continue on and on and on. It needs to be ignored 100% even though it hurts so very badly. Tell all your friends to ignore it too! My suggestion..... delete this blog you just wrote all together the more you ignore it they will get board because they are not getting a reaction. Keep up your amazing journey I love following all that you do and from what I can see thousands of others do as well and those are the people that count!

  11. I love it. I saw a quote the other day you might appreciate. "Haters are just confused admirers"

  12. Bless your heart :( - It really is so sad that people are that miserable with their own lives that they feel the need to try and destroy someone else !! I pray God gives you the strength to continue all of your good work and block these haters out of your life.

  13. you go girl!!! good for you!! you are a GREAT person in trying to help these animals there should be more people like you out there more power to you thats right you dont need them they are negative what comes around goes around!! they will get theirs one day keep doing what your doing i applaud you!!! great job

    ReplyDelete
  14. Isn't it great to have your own blog to let the world know exactly how you feel?! "Hello Haters" just might be one of my favorite blog posts from you! The time and energy put into to talking trash about you takes not only their time and energy, but think if they put that time and energy into saving another dog. Keep doing the good that your doing. One day they will realize that you aren't doing it for yourself or the so called "glory" that goes with it, but that you truly are doing if for the dogs who deserve better! We ALL have haters and maybe one day they will be more concerned about their own life and stop meddling in others!! Love you!

    ReplyDelete
  15. All I have to say is Kudos to you. These animals appreciate what you do. As for the haters they have nothing else better to do and obvious hate theirselves also and their life. Screw them:)

    ReplyDelete
  16. A whole lot of people would love to know who these 2 haters are. There is power in silence...hope you never respond to them, nor your friends. Love everything you do Ashley...beacause you do it all right and with that huge heart of yours! You're the Best!

    ReplyDelete
  17. some people are jealous because they wanna be you and cant,,so they hate..let them hate you keep doing what you do because its a great thing, and will be rewarded, the others will drown in their own misery..while you are rising above them all..keep saving them babies..we love ya for all you do

    ReplyDelete
  18. how can any one who saves animals be a bad person. To me it's the people who euthanize animals the bad people. I don't really know the whole problem here, but these people bashing you for what you do, need to read their Bible, God knows good from Bad and thats who they will someday have to answer to, and that could be devastating....good luck to you Ashley, you do a good thing...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I wouldn't even waste my time on these people whoever they are. You are a good person doing good stuff and obviously it bothers them.

    They say that what goes around, comes around so they'll get theirs someday.

    ReplyDelete
  20. These people are very sick in their heads and hearts. One of them uses the disguise of being a "good person" for her own personal gain. The other is just a mean bitch with a jealous soul. The 3rd pretends to be buddy-buddy with me so she can run & report to the other 2 and participate in the bashing. They really are all bad people who can't stand to see someone doing good for the world. That's pretty worthless.

  21. Maybe the boss needs to know how the help spends thier time at work. But it dont matter there is this thing called Karma that is at work in all of our lives. The funny thing about Karma when you give you get back 3 fold and when you take it gets taken sevenfold. Now you do the math who's taking and who's giving. Keep up the good work Ashley. In my eyes Actions speak way louder than any words ever could be shouted.

  22. You have inspired me in the past and continue to do so daily!!! Do not let these people get to you!! Continue the amazing things you do everyday. God be with you. Thank you for being who you are and inspiring me to be a better person! Thank you, Courtenay Bell Thomasville, NC

  23. You are a beautiful woman. You are doing such a wonderful thing by helping our little, furry friends. Unfortunately, there will always be envious people. Try not to let them get you down.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Keep up the good fight! You are spot on..

    Haters/ bullies are just those individuals so miserable in their own life and lack of accomplishments they feel the need to bash others to make themselves feel better.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have to agree that the bad people are the one's who can sleep at nite after "murdering" helpless animals. Would they do that to a child?????????

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ashley, I can't fathom how anyone would have a bad thing to say about you. You are an angel on earth. But, some people are just stupid and disgusting and don't deserve to share the earth with innocent animals. Bottom line - YOU GO GIRL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Jealousy is a disease and karma will bite em in the arse! :D Continue being the kind hearted person that you are and kill em with kindness. People like them aren't worth your time or effort. ♥

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think what these no-life losers want is attention. And even this post is giving them that. I'm glad this is the last time you waste on them. I say we pretend they don't exist and they will crawl away like the roaches they are. Let's just always focus on all the great positive stuff you always share! Keep doing your thing, we love it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am new to your blog and this story just sickens me. I have great respect for you and your work. I have been fostering for 7 years and it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done (right behind raising my kids) This quote sounds perfect for these two women.......

  31. Hating is the easy way out. Those who hate you have a reason, they lack integrity, personality and the ability to be you. Continue with all of your good work...you have alot of people supporting you :)

  32. Every second people spend on negative behavior is one second less that could have been spent saving/advocating/rescuing animals

  33. HA ha ha!!!!!!!! That's hilarious that anyone would ever put time and energy into trying to make others miserable. Are they in high school?? That's what it sounds like...a click. HA!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh whatever haters! You are the kind of people who would let a dog starve to death in their own backyard and stare out the window enjoying every minute of it. Then when the Animal Cops come to your house because someone turned you in, you tell them in court that you love your animal! Just take your no-concious, illegitimate, dog-hater selves back under the rocks and holes from which you came. You make me sick!!! Ash just keep doing what you're doing because there are way more dog lovers out there than these ticks! YOU GO GIRL!!

  35. ...Haters don't really hate you, they hate themselves...because YOUR a reflection of what THEY wish to be. <3

  36. Wow, what a trip reading that was. I had no idea you had people hating you, man especially after all the good work I know you do. I love everything your doing and like doing what I can do to help out in every aspect of your work. I wouldn't want to be in their shoes for anything. You just keep up your good work that is so obvious you love and enjoy and ignore these idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Right on! You tell them! What you do is amazing and it shows how wonderful of a person you are. Do not allow the haters a single second of your thoughts. There are loving, living beings that are awaiting your loving touch, time, thoughts and energy. There are many of us out here that love animals, no matter how great or small, and we only wish we could be doing all that you are accomplishing. I, well, I sit on the side lines, cheering you on, and helping in what little ways I can. Keep shining, sunshine!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm so confused. What on earth could you be doing to create haters? I have never read any comment on your blog or FB that is anything outside of positive and loving thoughts. How could rescuing dogs be a bad thing? If it is, call me a bad person then! I wish I could do as much as you, but my husband isn't open to the idea. I'll continue to rescue one pup at time and provide him or her with as much love and kisses as possible. I'm glad you can turn your back to idiots like that and continue what you're doing. You have thousands that support you and your work :)

  39. The saddest part is, these women are all around 40-50 years old! I am 26! What in the world are you doing worrying with what a twenty-something year old girl is doing?! Get a life!

    ReplyDelete
  40. They are bullies.... Remember in school bullies would pick on you to get a rise out of you. Just ignore them. You are giving them what they want by telling them off and giving them energy. They are the devil in disguise... If you are not doing anything wrong, and the people who these 2 are complaining to know that, let them do what they want. From what Im told there is no such thing as bad publicity! So, if they continue to hate on you.. let them, just go about your life and give them not the time of day!! They will retreat and find someone else to bother! I know, its annoying to have someone nipping at your heals all the time. Misery loves company, dont let them win and get your goat too! Rise above and dont stoop to their level..

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well put! Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  42. So sorry to hear that people have been so mean. It never ceases to amaze me how hateful and ignorant people can be. Keep up your amazing work and never let those idiots get to you, the animals need you too much!

    ReplyDelete
  43. hahahaha!! Yaa baby, you tell em! The haters and the trolls need to form their own pathetic, negative society where they can whine and cry to each other all day about the truly amazing people doing good in this world and making a difference in the lives of animals - like Ashley! It truly does boggles the mind that some useless people have nothing else better to do than sit on facebook all day or read blogs from incredible worthy people (like Ashley)! LOL! And, maybe the haters should take Ashley's advice and try to something positive with their life instead of stewing in their big pot of crap filled with jealousy, venom, hostility, malice and envy!! That is one pot I would never go near! It is better to give than receive - you should try it haters, you might like it!!! Great post as usual Ashley! xoxoxoxo!

  44. Like its been said before, they will get their just rewards and you just keep up the good work. Only just recently started advocating and sharing these animals in north carolina and plan to continue as long as I can. You rock. Keep up the good work.

  45. You go girl! I found your blog through the Dogs Deserve Better website and I just want you to know what you are doing is simply amazing! Keep up the great work.

    I know I shouldn't, but I feel bad for the sad, miserable people you talk about in this post. Could you imagine being that full of hate and hopelessness that you attack someone that is only doing good?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Keep doing what your doing!! I grew up with dog's since birth and can't picture my life without them! I appreciate anyone who does good for dog's and especially saves them from the dreaded needle! Appearently you have some donut eating, trailor trash hater's who are obviously jealous of your success while they wallow in there own unsuccessfull, miserable lives! For all we know, they're probably good friend's with Michael Vick! Keep doing what your doing and concider the source with them 2 idiot's! You have angel's behind you!! GET A REAL LIFE HATER'S! FIND SOME KIND OF POSSITIVE PURPOSE IN YOUR LIVE'S!!

  47. I guess I haven't been reading long enough to notice the haters. You know what I tell my son? It's usually originated somewhere deep down with a person who is jealous or unhappy.

    Here's what I have noticed: you are a positive force, a FORCE to be taken seriously. You LOVE dogs. Dogs that are not noticed by most. You put your money where your mouth is & take these dogs home. You show them love, respect & a sense of family that most of them have not seen.

    I know that I've talked to one of my best friends about you and how I'd like to be more like you - and I've posted your 'just another black dog' piece on my facebook page. I am a facebook fan of yours as well.

    Haters are not welcome here. They will never touch you or your good heart (and you sound like you know that, you know who you are!) but they are such a waste of your time, and so not welcome.

    99.9% of us adore you. Your fan,
    Sarah (:

  50. you have all of my love and respect , you remind me of myself. there is no greater love than the love of a rescued animal. just remember what i told you before,you are a godsend , one of the many angels god has given us to open mankinds compassion for all, humans to open their hearts and homes and share compassion for all of gods creatures.we are supposed to love & care. i am behind you 100%. carry on with youre mission and dont let anything or anyone get in your way. god bless you for everything you do. prayers and love sent your way .

  51. I Love your blogs I read it everyday and your doing a wonderful thing. I look forward to the blogs everyday. I love animals more than people and I only support animals I never donate to children animals cant speak and they are better than people. I share your blogs with everyone. Fuck those haters are the one's that should have been swallowed.

  52. "A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity." The sad part is that the fools you speak of are too fucking stupid to comprehend this quote.

  53. Life is TOO short for Haters. Delete & Block are my two favorite Facebook words. If only they worked "in real" life.
    Keep up the good work, Ashley!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. and to those haters: i do not know you and i dont like you. but im sure you're used to people not liking you. however this does not give you any right to bully and hate on people that are actually placed on this earth to only do good things and are loved by so many. jealousy does not become anyone. Ashley, keep your head up high and dont give them another ounce of your energy. they are not worth it. they thrive off of pushing your buttons because its apparent they have nuthin' better to do. and remember this, you three pathetic people: karma! karma will come at you when you least expect it.
    keep up the good fight ashley. you have a lot of support behind you!

    ReplyDelete
  55. PS Ashley - sorry, not sure where else to post this! I post dogs on my facebook page daily, often from ACC in NY - and the dog in the pics above on top of your blog? The one all the way left with the sort of funny eyes? I posted her/him as well! I can't forget those eyes. Do you know if he/she was rescued? My posting is a tiny drop compared to what you do, but I love doing it. I've had 3-4 friends go with rescues because of my 'educating' them. Who knew? (:
    Thank you.

  56. To the 'haters' go and get laid if you can.....seems you are so bored with your own lives you have to pick on someone you thought can't fight back.............wrong, keep watching your backs, you just never know who's behind you..............

  57. I just,today, subscribed to your blog. I am literally speechless. How can anyone criticize someone who has dedicated their life to helping those less fortunate? It is a sad commentary on human nature that some sink to the lowest common denominator. Please take solace that there is a higher power and consequences for behavior. I am so sorry, as they say this too shall pass, until then f'um!

  58. I love it!!! I've dealt with the same problem here recently of someone talking crap about me on her blog and to my friends and then completely denying it when confronted. I love having my own blog to just say "kiss off loser".

    You are doing an amazing thing and I give you my full support. Keep it up!

  59. There's a special place in Hell for people who try to derail and besmirch the reputation of goode-hearted, giving people like you. Those people are daily thrown from cars, left in the cold in some-out-of-the-way dumping site, locked in small cages and starved and then beated within an inch of their lives in that Hell, just like the poor little souls you save. Only, the haters deserve it. They are to be ignored and laughed at. Keep on truckin', wonderful girl!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm confused! How can they try and bash you when you are out there doing wonderful things for animals....not yourself but for animals that can't do it by themselves. What can they possibly say to make them look good and you look like the bad person? I will never understand people like them, nor do I want to. The more they talk bad about you, the worse they look. You have so many supporters and people who are amazed at what you do everyday! You have inspired me to start a rescue in my state and try and be half the person you are. One day they will get theirs, Karma always comes back around!

  62. Oh Ashley, you are SOOOOO beyond this b.s. It is an unfortunate fact of life that there will always be someone trying to bring another person down. It's called self-hate. It is just sad that people like that even exist. What is this-junior freaking high? Grow up HATERS and do something productive with your lives!! Ashley, you ROCK- so keep on rockin' it girl, haters or no haters! We ♥ you!!!

  63. You GO GIRL, put them hater-blockers on and IGNORE the trash talkers !! They are jealous because you are a smart, beautiful intelligent, respected and LOVED young women that was took advantage of an opportunity to do some good in the world and speak for those with no voice ! Like I said before there is a place in heaven for u seated next to GOD :)). Keep doing what you are doing and IGNORE THE HATERS !!! Xoxo

  64. Hahaha, wow, the comment about them selling hearts at Walmart next to the breeder puppie... well... FOR THE WIN! At least you know that you have thousands of people out there rooting for you. I am inspired by what you do and hope that I can take fostering to the next level when it's the right time in my life. I'm really counting on winning the lottery so I can donate millions to the rescue I foster for. ;-) Wishful thinking, eh? But, for now, I'll do what I do and be the good person I choose to be. Just like you choose to do. Don't let them get you down. I know you don't. Because animal people care more about what their dogs think than their humans. Peace, love, and paw prints...

  65. These creatures can f#@* off and die!!!! Jealousy breeds evil and apparently they are very jealous of you. You are a beautiful, generous, kind-hearted, lovely person and there is NO REASON WHAT-SO-EVER to wish anything but the best for you and what you do. These nasty and most likely fugly trolls must have hearts of stone. Continue to do what you do and karma will get these disgusting worthless POS!!!

  66. Ashley,

    Turn around and don't look back, girl! I'm 26 and have dealt with that type too. We're busy women with places to go and great things to accomplish. We've got no time for negativity, especially from people who are older and supposed to be more mature than us. Makes you want to scream, huh?

    Go get 'em lady.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I echo what has been said time and time again here....what you do for these poor, seemingly hopeless, souls is beyond amazing. You give hope to the hopeless; Life to those ready to take "the walk" in the direction where life is taken; Love to those who have never known it, but always hoped and yearned for it. I don't know you...but given all the folks who have posted here in positivity compared with the "2 in particular" who have only harsh criticism and negativity...I am guessing their hate is ill-founded and most likely misdirected. So, keep on keepin' on.... make those pups smile like you do...and continue to share your experiences with us. Thank you.

  68. That was the most beautiful put down, shut up and go away I have ever heard! I loved every word of it. Please keep doing what you do, and here are prayers that more people take a lesson from you. God Bless You and Yours

  69. Where is the like button? Some people, I will NEVER understand. If you don't like the cause why are you reading the stuff. Not everything in this world revolves around you, Haters. There are ALOT of us who work for good and happen to like the site and the blog. You are probably one of those people who would get rid of the Freedom of Speech Amendment, unless it is to spread hatred. Don't like it, stay away. Period. (I don't have any of the selections below, so I am Cindy Cameron).

  70. Their hate can only come from envy. Any decent person will see the amazing work you do to help dogs and find you an inspiration.

    It is tough when good people have unpleasant people bitching about them, but I've learned to try to avoid them and realise their actions and words say more about them, than they do me.

    If someone upsets me, I go and snuggle one of my rescue dogs - works wonders to make me realise what is really important :-)

  73. To anonymous on March 30th @ 7:23 PM. Maybe you could pitch in and help her out, rather then standing by on the sidelines and letting it bother you so much. All those months you've let pass by and not actually done anything about it other then laugh? At least she is trying...she may not have the background or the resources but she is saving one life at a time.
    I see you were trying to say it tastefully, but the underlining fact is your not all that positive if you down her for her efforts.

    Thanks for considering it,

    I do live here and I take her very serious. I know what I am talking about. No one is laughing at her, only at you. You are CRAZY! You don't know what you are talking about but she sure knows what she is talking about. I sure believe what she says and I believe in her. She has plenty of experience and tons of knowledge. GO AWAY LEAVE HER ALONE AND GET A LIFE YOU BIG BULLY!

  76. Ashley, just tell her to do the world a favor and go buy 6' of rope and find the talest tree!! Let us know when she does so we all can stand around and stone her to death while she hang's and we laugh uncontrolably at her!!! She must be an inbreed!!

  77. Agreed. I deleted the evil comment because it was very hurtful to my rescue dogs, WHICH IS THE ONE THING I REFUSE TO TOLERATE. This person is a coward who hides behind "anonymous" despite the fact that I know who she is. Leave my dogs out of this please. Thank you.

  78. I am so sorry to hear this, so sorry that a site that deals with the rescue of animals has to put up with nasty comments. I'm completely baffled by the idea of this or what these folks can ever hope to accomplish.

  79. Keep up the good work Ashley! I know it's easier said than done to ignore the vicious old biddies, obviously they have no life. I cannot say enough how much I admire your work and all the effort you put into saving dogs. Thank you for making the world a better place.

  80. Ashley, you answered your own question: You're 26, and they are 40-50. You run a successful dog rescue and they probably have unfulfilled, unsuccessful lives. Of course they're hating. Just remember, if you have "haters," then you're making a big enough impact in the world for people to sit up and notice.

  81. My Dearest Ashley,
    I came across your rescue page on Facebook. From the moment I read about your mission, I knew I had to help you spread the word about the animals you are trying to save. What I do is but a tiny drop in the bucket compared to you. I so admire your spirit, compassion, and dedication. I want to be like you Ashley. I love animals for their unconditional love is so amazing that they can only be a gift from God. The Lord made animals as Adam's first companions and so it should be obvious to all that He esteems them as highly as us humans. For a person to abuse an animal, for any reason, shows that he/she is devoid of a soul. Just as there are those who abuse animals, the defenseless and the innocent who have no power against man... There are those disturbed and deviant people who abuse people as well. The world is a very dark place, and the only thing to give it light and meaning are people like YOU! You are a gift from God, and so is everyone else who fights the fight for the innocent and the defenseless... without any thought of rewarding themselves, but simply for the sheer compassion of bringing joy to others by doing what's right.
    Ashley, always remember that you are a beacon of light, of joy, and of hope... Not just for the animals you save, but for the people you motivate to also help animals that never would have before they saw the strength in you! Unfortunately in our world, "no good deed goes unpunished" and that is the only reason why these people have targeted you. Although they are from God, there is no God in them. They are evil. There is a pay-day someday where all of us will be held accountable to answer to God Almighty for what we have done and what we have failed to do. These people and every person who hurts another, have much to answer for.
    Ashley, the hatred of a few is nothing compared to the love and respect of many, and we do so love you, even as strangers we love you, we value you, we support you and we need you! Be strong Ashley because the truth of who you are and what you do is brilliant light for everyone to see. Be strong and be comforted Ashley because every good deed is rewarded, and you my friend, have a bountiful harvest to receive. We are always here for you! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR BEING THERE FOR THE ANIMALS! GOD BLESS YOU & COMFORT YOU & PLACE A SHIELD OF PROTECTION & PEACE AROUND YOU! :)

  82. Jaina, Wow. I am just speechless. Thank you. Thank you for being so amazing. Thank you for wanting to get involved. Thank you for taking the time to brighten my day. I am moved, touched, and just don't even have words for how much that meant to me. Thank you

  83. I love this sooo much! I actually sat here and laughed instead of crying tonight. People can be so ridiculous. That's why I fight for the animals. You are so amazing! You have tons of friends that will stand behind you. These sorry people should realize that they can't ruin you. YOU are WONDER WOMAN! I can send my dogs after them if you'd like!

  85. Hey Ashley,
    I just want to join in with everyone saying you are wonderful and i am sorry these disturbed people are bothering you. What you do and have done is so inspiring - thank you for it.

    I don't know if it helps, but basically every blog i have ever read receives hate mail. There are a lot of self-destructive/destructive people out there who can't figure out a better way to channel their energy. It's not you, it's THEM.

    Thank you for your beautiful work!

    Take care and thanks again for yoir beautiful work!

  87. Dont know who any of you are and my post from Wed. nite is the first time I have ever even come to this blog. I do know Ash is mistaken about who is writing most of the less than adoring comments. And, yes, Ashley is a drama queen. We figured that out long ago. She's not happy unless all eyes are on her - whether its for her rescue efforts or crying wolf because someone doesn't like her! Grow Up.

  88. Dear Anonymous..do u realize u are sending threats over the internet & that is something that could put u in jail? You truly aee an idiot and have proven to everyone on here that you are are a jealous, bitter, old hag. Why don't you let Ashley do what she does & go on with your pityfull life. If she bothers hou so much, stop following what she does. Look who needs to grow up!

  89. Sorry I hit a nerve..Nothing wrong with wanting to settle things face to face and put and end to all this..No Threats-

  90. What shallow, empty lives they must lead. Scary that people like this live among us, devoid of any moral fiber. I suppose it's just arrogance on their part to believe they have all the answers and feel obligated to point out your shortcomings and lack of direction.

    Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.

    For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...

  91. Hey friends :) I just wanted to say that I wrote this blog for ME. I wrote this to take my power back from people who think they can steal from me & threaten me. I wanted to say I am stronger than you. And I am. So thank you all for your support & kind words. Really. Also, I think the vicious comments from these people have proven that I am not making this up or being dramatic. Thank you all for being so amazing to me :) I have the best friends ever! Love, Ash

  92. Everyone will meet the same maker and account for all their evil doings against their neighbors.

  93. Wow! I love how people that have negative comments are too scared to actually say their names. Cowards.

    Ashley - you are doing an amazing thing. Anyone that would want to bring you down for helping the helpless should be ashamed for having anything negative to say about it. Atleast you are doing something.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh wow you people are seriously pathetic. At the ripe old age of 50 still behaving like high school girls. Congratulations, you have chosen to take the low road in life and act like white trash hillbillys (or you just ARE white trash hillbillys). And where do you work exactly that allows you to use your time this way? A backwoods truck stop that finally got dial-up?Whether you "like" Ashley or not or think she's a drama queen is irrelevant to your life in every way. People who focus on the flaws of others simply can't bear to look in the mirror. I sincerely hope for your own sake that you will choose to pay attention to your own mistakes and failures, and then concentrate on how you can improve your own life. It's a waste of energy for Ashley or anyone else to try and reason with people like you, and our only comfort is knowing that if this is how you spend your free time then you already ARE miserable. Less work for us, we don't have to do anything. I find it amusing that these individuals threaten Ashley while posting "anonymously", clearly worried about exposing their behavior. Hopefully the companies they work for don't find out, as I'm pretty sure they would lose their jobs. Given their personalities, I imagine it would be hard to find a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Not a threat? Just want to work it out? Then why are you posting anonymously? Lucky for me, my husband is a computer programmer and can track your IP on his lunch break.

  96. I love what you do and I am thankful God puts people on this earth like you!! One day I hope to be able to save as many animals as I possibly can just like you!

  97. Settle what face to face Anonymous!!?? That you don't have a life and you feel the need to threaten and harass someone that is clearly trying to do good things on this earth? I don't see how that is Ashley's problem to settle. Just a couple words of advice, don't threaten people on the internet since that is punishable by the law (didn't strick a nerve, just giving you facts) and find a different hobby since you obviously have way too much time on your hands. Try doing something usefull with your life because right now you are just proving Ashley's point no matter what you say.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Wow Ashley. You're getting so pretty hefty threats now -cough-cough-. MOVING ON THOUGH (yeah, would hate to show an ounce of attention for ignorant flesh), you are absolutely amazing with all that you do. No matter what you do, you'll ALWAYS have atleast one person trying to bring you down because of their own insecurities. Is this right? Of course not but it can either make or break you and I don't see it even making you crack. Stay strong and let people talk what they must, they're just proving to be the idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  99. well drat, I had a great long comment, and it went POOF.

    will try again with my eloquence.

    Ashley, I am so sorry you are experiencing the stress of others in rescue working to belittle your work. It happens all the time to me and I truly don't understand it. I may not do things the way others would, however I am not them and I have a different set of emotions, strengths and morals. I try to not degrade others for the same reason. at least not publicly...

    So. to those who are out there tearing you down, I ask of you this: Try to walk on your own path, leave Ashley and Lucky Dog Rescue alone. If we all work on the same prize ANIMAL RESCUE AND SAVING LIVES - PLACING THE ANIMALS INTO SAFE PLACES. why worry about how someone else does it; her successes, her voice? be glad she is doing it because those animals are not ones you will have to spend your energy, time and money on.

    As Janet Madden of CARA often states: "we need an animal rescue organization on every corner, and they still won't all get rescued or adopted - there are that many out there" .


    With the site administration, Ashley can see who you are - it is easy to see who posts what autonomously. Why hide behind autonomous posting of spite? The spite you post is wasted energy. I challenge you to stop the tearing down of another rescuer. Focus on your own back yard and do the next right thing.

  103. I am not a hater of yours Ashley. But I am disappointed. You are someone who is a hero. In that role, calling people names and saying "screw you I'm great" is so immature. What example are you setting for children who want to be animal rescuers and helpers too? Not to mention your own peers. Please reconsider changing some things about this entry. It started off well and I understand why you needed to do it, and it's venting and healing and giving yourself a voice, but the name calling is childish and accomplishes nothing but making yourself look bad. You are more than that........

    ReplyDelete
  104. Pippa, I love you.
    Anonymous, I appreciate your input. Thank you for stating your opinion in such a kind way. I never said "Screw you, I'm great." I said good things keep coming my way because I try to be a good person, and screw you for trying to take from me instead of doing your own good. I also didn't call names or even use names.
    These things have been going on for years, and this is the very first time I have actually stood up for myself, despite all of the awful things that have been done. So I don't regret finally saying that I deserve better.

  105. I wrote that above. I'm not the same anonymous who wrote any of the previous replies that was my first I just don't have a blog to sign in.

    Ashley, remember this quote "No one can make you inferior without your consent." by Eleanor Roosevelt. By lashing out with names and threats like telling the haters be thankful your BFF is in CA really took me aback and I lost respect for you today. People who don't know you, will not take you seriously after reading this. I meant what I said you're a hero, don't stoop to the haters' level.

    ReplyDelete
  106. No you don't deserve the hate and ARE better! I was surprised by this and I guess don't understand it all.

  107. Aimee, thank you and I really do appreciate what you said. The part about being lucky Chris is in California was simply intended to be funny... I wanted to make others laugh about the ridiculous-ness of the entire situation. But I do appreciate your comments.
    I just have to have a voice in my own life. I rarely stand up for myself, and these people know that about me and continue to hurt me. But when the bashing became aimed at my rescue dogs, I had to draw a line.
    I really respect what you had to say, and thank you for your input. Really.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Ashley - don't let the Hater's hurt you or destroy what you have worked so hard to accomplish. You are an amazing person with a huge heart, no matter what anyone ever says about you! It feels good to stand up for yourself, but don't stoop to their level...let their nasty words roll right off of your back and that will even piss them off more.

    Hater = Jealousy and that is the plain truth.

    How can anyone have a problem with what you are doing in your life? We should all be so lucky that there is someone in OUR world who cares as much as you do...I know I appreciate you and dream of the day that I can help animals even a fraction of how much you help them...you are amazing and don't forget that!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Aimee, this isn't my dogfight, but I want to insert my opinion, even though it wasn't asked for by anyone.

    When doing this work of rescue, one is faced each day with adversity. people who don't understand the need to rescue animals when there are other things that they deem more important. these people tear you down. then there is the adversity of the people who abuse the animals and don't want you meddling in their "business" - they tear you down. then there is the lack of concern or support financially from the public. everyone wants something 'DONE' about the issue, but don't want to support financially. This is VERY EXPENSIVE work. VERY EXPENSIVE. Most of us rescuers don't get government funding, and have to scrape by to get donations. then the donations don't cover it all. (someone wanted to bring me 4 puppies yesterday that they just picked up and offered me $50 to cover it. $50 won't cover a DAY! - Taking in 4 puppies at a minimum will cost over $1000 for the first month.)

    I know that I try to keep all this sort of stress and trash out of my day to day posts and cheerleading; trying to keep people interested in my work so they adoptions, fosters and donations will continue to flow. I have to promote promote promote in order to keep it all moving forward.

    I know Ashley does this as well. Ashley does it very well. Ashley is making a name for herself in the rescue world and is getting some well deserved recognition for that work. I commend her. She is respected.

    That said. others who she has passed by because they are not doing it as successfully or as well as she are now degrading her work in order to try to regain some ground that they are losing in her dust. they are lashing out at her rather than to rethink how they are doing things and how they can do them better.

    I know from my personal point, when I sit back and get hit again and again and again from adversaries, there comes a time when you have to scream ENOUGH! loudly. you have to stand up for yourself and say that you won't take it anymore.

    I think that Ashley finally reached that point.

    Ashley is a gracious young woman. She is kind. She is polite. and she has now found that straw that breaks the camels back

    but that is just my opinion.

  110. Pippa,
    Yet again, you remind me & everyone else of how amazing you are.

    My friend Pippa puts up with things that are absolutely unspeakable, and she is so incredibly strong through it all. I have watched Pippa handle everything that comes her way with grace and dignity, and I am constantly in awe of her.

    If anyone ever wants to help an incredible, hard-working, in-it-for-the-right-reasons rescue group in Mississippi, Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) of MS could not come more highly recommended by me and MANY others. I just wanted to say that :)
    Love you Pippa!

  111. Being a 'hater' is one thing....We have all gotten the nasty little messages because someone decides we have too much pull with others, or credibility, etc....

    However, defamation of one's character opens the door to a whole range of legal consequences and ultimately remedies.

    Perhaps it would be advisable for anyone seriously impacting the livelihood and reputation of another, to put their money where their mouth is and hire an attorney to advise them to - in words which they can understand, SHUT IT....

    But what do I know, after having completed law school and getting my JD....

    Have a nice day....

    Keep up the good work Ashley....

    YOU, Ashley, are my Hero!!! Always remember one thing ... "Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back ... it simply means you are so far ahead of them" ... mean girls, will always be mean girls, and they grow into mean ladies ... they are pathetic ... YOU are amazing ... waste no more of your precious time, on those 'wastes of skin' ... your energy and enthusiasm is amazing and contagious ... don't let anyone take that from you ... just keep doing what you are doing ... you have stood up for yourself ... and all of us, are standing with you ... God Bless You!!!!!!

  116. Ashely, keep doing what you do so well! There are tons of people out here that support you. As Pamela just above me said, there should be more pople in the world to give to others. I am sure that people who don't agree with animal rescue don't even go and volunteer at a local food pantry or a soup kitchen. They just hate everything and everybody.
    You keep going girl, and please make sure you don't make me cry with every one of your posts ;)

  121. To those who claimed Ashley is a "drama queen": why the hell would she need to dramatize what she does???? She spends her life fighting for those who can't fight for themselves. You, on the other hand, spend your puny lives trying to tear down those who actually do something with their lives. Shame on you, haters, and thank goodness for Ashley (and Pippa Jackson) and the work they do!
