China: R.I.P., First Day Braveheart Has Lost Her Battle
It is with great sadness that I have to announce First Day Braveheart lost her battle this afternoon, Lanzhou, China time. She was a girl (not a boy.) Her rescuer dressed her in a beautiful purple dress, with a purple flower in her collar, for her final farewell (I will refer to her rescuer as “J.”) I am writing this entire article through tears.
I woke up this morning to find self-assigned ‘pretending fb investigator’ Pat Hermans had maliciously posted that First Day Braveheart was fake news, slandering my name and urging people not to follow Fight Dog Meat. This is the same person (and her sidekicks), who maliciously made false accusations against myself and my organization a couple of weeks before Yulin.
Because of more false accusations from Pat Hermans, I was forced to ask Braveheart’s rescuer, J: “Is this story real or is it an old story?” J assured me is “happening now.” She then broke down and wept as she described everything. Pat Hermans you reduced a Chinese animal rescuer to tears!
As proof that Braveheart’s story is real and IS taking place now, J gave me this video from a Chinese television channel, one of many who interviewed Dr. Huang Dafu about First Day Braveheart being under his care. The video is dated 6.25: [original video link: http://m.youku.com/video/id_XMjg0OTIyNTU0MA==.html?x=&sharefrom=android&from=timeline&source= ]
J then put me in direct contact with Braveheart’s veterinary surgeon, Dr. Huang Dafu, at Lanzhou Po Chi Ling animal clinic. Because of Pat Herman’s malicious accusations I was forced to also ask the doctor if he was treating Braveheart, or not? Dr. Huang Dafu VERIFIED that First Day Braveheart is under his care and he had been treating her for 10 days.
Dr Huang messaged me on Chinese social media and said: “My clinic called Lanzhou Po Chi Ling animal clinic, I started from the first day to take care of injured dog, to the present ten days passed. I do not leave the 24-hour care, although now though dangerous. I do not abandon, do not give up.”
Dr. Huang Dafu then sent me this video where he was interviewed by a local Chinese television channel, about First Day being under his care, at his clinic [original video link: https://m.weibo.cn/status/4123372785003863?wm=3333_2001 ]
An hour later Dr. Huang Dafu messaged me again and said: “Do not thank, I can only go to treatment, and now in critical condition.”
I said a silent prayer for Braveheart and took comfort in the knowledge that thousands of people around the world where also praying for her. She had a wonderful life waiting for her in Scotland. She just had to get through this.
An hour later my heart sank. J messaged me saying:
“Thank all the people who care about helping the First Day it freed ….”
“Michele it’s gone, I’m so sad! The first is a girl!.
We have tried our best. It is also freed, go to a world without pain!”
“There are more and more hair children need us, please sorrow it!”
Final Message To Me From Dr. Huang
Dr. Huang messaged me a final time: “Bad news.” 不好的消息.
And he sent me a link from his own Vet Clinic’s website, with TODAY’S DATE on it: 2017-07-05: The First Day To Go All The Way To Heaven.
The same website also has a previous article on First Day Braveheart, dated 2017-06-25.
The date is significant because Pat Hermans is publicly calling me a ‘fraud and a liar who steals old pictures from the internet and slaps my own logo on them.’ Clearly, I am in direct communication with the treating vet and one of the rescuers.
First Day Braveheart will never be forgotten and will live on in our heart. She was so close to living a wonderful life in Scotland, with a loving family and other dog family members. Her mom-to-be who was going to adopt her, is also devastated. To read the first part of First Day Braveheart’s story: China: Rescued! Dog Half Skinned Alive, Part 1.
Braveheart’s song, from the movie Braveheart. At the three quarter mark of the song, when the bagpipes join in, I was beside myself in grief at the loss of this poor girl.
First Day Braveheart will now become the Fight Dog Meat poster girl for China.
She will join New Year, who is our poster girl for Vietnam.
Pat Hermans you have now hurt very good Chinese animal rescuers and an excellent vet surgeon who worked around the clock to save this stricken dog, while you did your best to undermine everything. You should hang your head in shame! Your relentless malicious attacks against myself and Fight Dog Meat will not go unnoticed any longer.
Thank you for everyone’s support and prayers. Fight Dog Meat will continue to fight for animal protection laws in China and other dog and cat meat countries which have no laws in place. First Day Braveheart will not die in vain.
