Unhappy A Truly Tragic Story. Please do not read if you are very sensitive. Read with caution

This is one of the most horrible stories I have read about dog cruelty. It is very sad, and I do not recommend reading further if you are sensitive about chis.

It is terrible that there are actually people out there who can be so cruel. What monster has the crooked soul to hurt and kill such a small, precious creature? I can't believe this guy didn't have to serve any more time. I think he should have been put away, and the girlfriend should also have some accountability.

God bless Chiquita. Rest in Peace.

Reposted from the San Francisco Chronicle:

A man has pleaded no contest to charges that he kicked his girlfriend's Chihuahua to death after it soiled their bed in Redwood City.
Ariel Aspedilla, 26, of Manteca entered his no-contest plea to a felony animal cruelty charge on Monday in San Mateo County Superior Court. Judge Clifford Cretan sentenced him to nine months in jail and allowed Aspedilla to be released because of credit for time served.

Aspedilla was arrested March 13 after Chiquita, a 4-year-old female, died at an animal hospital, prosecutors said.

Aspedilla spent the night of March 6 with his girlfriend at her apartment and awoke to find that Chiquita had defecated and urinated on the bed, prosecutors said. Enraged, he kicked the dog four or five times, said Steve Wagstaffe, chief deputy district attorney.

Chiquita suffered five broken ribs, punctured lungs and a damaged liver and lost a significant amount of blood, authorities said. Aspedilla and his girlfriend brought the dog to Sequoia Veterinary Hospital in Redwood City, where a doctor tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate it, said Eva Fillyaw, a manager at the clinic.

Aspedilla was consoling his weeping girlfriend and appeared eager to accept the doctor's initial diagnosis that Chiquita might have an immune-system problem that was causing blood loss, Fillyaw said.

But a necropsy revealed the broken ribs as well as previous signs of abuse, Fillyaw said.








I pray for all the other chis out there with bad owners.

If a dog uses the restroom on the bed, it is your responsibility to clean it up and put the dog elsewhere.

My heart goes out to the poor little soul.

GRRR! I can't even say what I would have done to him if I had been the vet. I wonder if she soiled the bed because she was acting out against him? Too bad she didn't bite him instead. Then she would at least have had a chance to get back at him for the previous beating that it sounds like she got.

My question is how did the girlfriend let this go? I mean this can't be the first time he has done this or has shown physical abuse. So personally I wish they both take a class on animal rights and what such.

Here here. This has disgusted me, I think abuse of an animal should be treated just the same as abuse of a child or another human, it seems a few month in prison (which they usually get out 4 months before they should) Why isnt there a stronger sentance than this? Anyone who can harm any living thing out of anger cannot be a sane person in my eyes..

I wish we could push for a stronger sentance, And if I was the girlfirend, Id be the one in prison for murder.

poor little chi my heart goes out to her I wished she would have survived and lived in a happier home xx im so sad.
