It’s a curse, I can’t just walk away from something. If I accept things for face value I would not know most of the things I do.
The poodles I picked up from that wretched place & those awful people… unbelievably IT GETS WORSE.
In 1984 Miss Turner/Dyreson lost 62 dogs in a house fire
The Spokesman-Review June 2 1984
Kennel Operator was breaking the law
A kennel operator who lost more than 50 dogs in a house fire Wednesday was breaking a city ordinance by keeping so many animals in her home, city officials said Friday. Wilma Dyreson E3330 Montgomery said 18 adult dogs & 38 puppies from 10 different litters were destroyed in the fire. All were in cages in her basement. Some of the puppies were only 2 days old, she said. Dyreson said the Poddes & Shih-tzu dogs were valued at $75 to $350 each. Six cats caged in the basement survived by climbing into their water dishes, she said. City ordinance prohibits keeping more than 3 adult dogs at a residence, city officials said. Puppies under 4 months old are exempt

50 Dogs die in fire: Ordinance violation cited
A kennel operator who lost more than 50 purebred dogs in a house fire Wednesday was violating a city ordinance by keeping so many dogs at her home, city officials said today. Wilma Dyreson E3330 Montgomery said 18 adult dogs & 38 puppies from 10 different litters were destroyed in the fire. All were in cages in her basement. Some of the puppies were only 2 days old, she said. Dyreson said the Poddes & Shih-tzu dogs were valued at $75 to $350 each. Six cats caged in the basement survived by climbing into their water dishes, she said. Fire Officials said the 3:20 a.m. fire apparently was caused by faulty wiring in a heating pad used for the puppies. City ordinances prohibit keeping more than 3 adult dogs at a residence city officials said. Puppies under four months are exempt. Dyreson said she brought he dogs to her home from her licensed kennel RiverVale Toy Kennel E3910 Joseph, because the small dogs required constant attention. “They can call it illegal if they want” She said today “I call it my nursery”
So if the fire started with a heating pad that was heating the puppies that means those puppies & their mother burned alive, & we can only pray that the others died from smoke inhalation before they were also burned alive, what really struck a cord with me is this: Her attitude, instead of being distraught, & freaking out about such a horrid death, she gives the values of the dogs & disses the code enforcement provisions saying someone had to watch the dogs at all times, well at 3:20 in the morning no one was there to watch them & they died & all she is worried about was the money she lost on them & fighting a ticket because she evidently has always felt as though she could do whatever she damn well pleases & screw the law
So how do I know this is the same person? This article said she was booked into jail on a totally different name which really made me curious…

On a tip alleging animal abuse, Wilma L. Turner, 61, was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, Friday, July 30, at her commercially licensed dog breeding facility, the Iron Horse Ranch, 26727 E. Hauser Lake Rd., Newman Lake, Wash., according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. She was booked under the name Wilma Lorraine Dyreson into the Spokane County Jail. Thirty-eight dogs were seized from the property. Turner has been the subject of numerous allegations by area residents about possible mistreatment, abuse and neglect of her dogs. Nancy Hill of the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) served a warrant on the property and teams of agents entered to conduct inspections on the welfare of the animals.
Photos of the ranch show a property laden with cages, kennels, old vehicles, debris, assorted outbuildings, and an old motorhome. Journalists were not allowed on the ranch during the inspections but on Friday a strong odor of feces and urine was apparent from the road nearly 50 yards away from buildings on the property. Hill said her office is evaluating possible charges related to animal mistreatment. The investigation is continuing.

There is the matter of her being arrested for pot, but that was an illegal search & seizure & the Supreme Court struck down her conviction & sentence. I hate weed personally but I think law enforcement would & should have better things to tackle without violating someone’s rights. As a side note the newspapers incorrectly reported she had been arrested for gun & marijuana charges, it was only for pot & the gun charge came with the raid because as part of her original sentencing she was ordered to not have fire arms but the whole thing was thrown out hence no charges because there was no violation. If I am going to say something I want to be able to back it up & prove it.
Kind of a moot point when you consider the shit these poor dogs have had to live in though.
I don’t care what your excuse is there is NO REASON FOR ANY ANIMAL TO BE IN THIS CONDITION. I had cancer & was getting chemo & radiation & was in a wheel-chair because I was in a car accident & paralyzed from the waist down but I still managed to take care of my 7 kids, 4 sisters, 1 brother (the same ages as my kids) 2 nephews & a niece.
As I was cutting the mats away from one of the dog’s butt because it was matted shut & he looked pregnant, he pooped 3 times more then any big lab would’ve one girls eye was matted shut & she was covered in so much urine & crap that she was yellow orange, this is filth & neglect pure & simple. The funny part is they keep telling me that a “very prominent national attorney” is going to come after me for what I am posting. I will tell you this much: any prominent attorney who would condone or protect this type of treatment or behavior needs to be outed so that everyone can know what kind of person they are & furthermore I DARE any of these people to find one lie, untruth or misrepresentation on any of the stories or any of my statements.
