travelled to Prague on the 14th of March to
have a meeting with Lucie Meric, who I thought
was a good friend of mine and the greyhounds.
told me during my visit in December that she
would work only with Tereza and Mr Lachina to
organise another transport.
that time Lucie was disagreeing with Jana and
I went to Prague to find out what was
think I may have misjudged Jana at that
meeting due to things Lucie had told me about
there was no sign of any plans to arrange
another transport I decided to travel to
prague with two dogs Hannah and Honcho..
I arrived at the airport it was very obvious
that there was a disagreement going on as
there were two seperate groups at the airport.
travelled with Lucie to a restaurant to meet
Tereza and Mr Lachina and on the journey,
Lucie agreed not to fight with them and
that they would come to some solution to have
one meeting in May.
alas she did not stick to her promise of not
fighting and it was like world war 3.
was adamant that she would not work with them
and she also said that she would no longer
have a transport to Prague as she did not have
the time as her work , dog shows and
breeding puppies took up too much of her time.
gave me 310 euro and asked me for a receipt
which I gave to her.
arranged to meet Lucie at 10 am the next
morning before I left my hotel but she did not
turn up or make a phone call. to cancel.
found out at Christmas, through Jana, that one
of our dogs went missing soon after arrival in
Prague, another had died and I do
know of some people who Lucie has given OUR
dogs to without a home check.
is NOT the way to run a re-homing organisation.
All people who apply for adoption, should fill
out a re-homing questionnaire Then the organisation,
or one of their volunteers should visit the
family to see if the home is suitable
Example; Is there a secure garden for
the dog, are their very small children at home,
is the home large enough for a sight- hound,
is there somebody at home in the day so the
dog will not be left alone for a long time. (see
GACI website, can be translated via Google
then should the family be allowed to adopt a
also heard from Jana that Lucie did a
collection for the veterinary costs on a
little lurcher named, Manuka, which we rescued
in 2007. PAWS did not receive this money.
has refused to give us the contact details for
the families who have adopted approx 170 dogs
from Ireland in the last 3 years, why is she
afraid to do this if she is retiring from
rescue ? Is there something to hide ??
will see by the dogs passports that they all
legally belong to PAWS Organisation.
sad that this has happened as I always
considered Lucie a friend, It makes my heart
