    Now, it becomes very obvious to me:

    Cornelia and her boyfriend Christophe had left Aruba some time after Whitey/Pinky got hit by a car and was severely injured in May 2014. They brought the dog to the vet and left it there for three months. They were not there when the dog was released from the vet. They probably did not see the dog anymore since the dog got hit by a car in May 2014 (did they visit it at the vet???) as they only returned to Aruba on November 4, 2014!

    Cornelia stated that they had Whitney/Pinky for three years. I wonder how much time she actually spent in Aruba during that time. As a "dog owner".

    Cornelia also mentions the neighbor who is the owner of Wolly and Buddy, the two dogs Whitey/Pinky used to play with. But this neighbor was also the problem why the dog had ticks as he has no fence, does not treat his property against ticks and Whitey/Pinky would pick up ticks there when she went over to play with the other two dogs.

    I wonder if this is the same neighbor who is now mentioned as the "co-owner" of Whitey/Pinky, Mr. Howard Tromb?
    If that is the case, I would agree with the lawyer that it's BOGUS.

    Here is the situation in Cornelia's own words:

    Thanks, Andrea!

    I'm named after an arch angle who is known for being a protector for the animals and a truth seeker.

    Maybe that has something to do with it.

    I noticed something else when reading through this email from Cornelia:

    Cornelia mentioned the incident where Whitey/Pinky got hit by a taxi driver who drove too fast (80km/h) and was on her cell phone. It sounded as if this taxi driver was at fault. There was a police investigation, the police took a photo of Whitey/Pinky while in a kennel at the vet office.

    However, in court, she is claiming veterinary bills.

    If the taxi driver was at fault, the taxi driver would have had to pay the vet bills, IMO.
    If Cornelia was at fault because the dog was NOT on a leash, she would have to pay the vet bills herself, IMO.

    As a flight attendant (she listed that on her private FB), would she have to pay airline tickets? I'm not familiar with that.

    Excerpt:
    It's a serious legal case that involves the emotional attachment both sides feel for the dog and a financial investment in legal fees, veterinarian bills and airline tickets.

    CK, flight attendants can piggyback on flights. they don't have to pay for the flight. sometimes they get a seat, sometimes they sit in one of those flight attendant jump seats. my stepdaughter's friend is a flight attendant in Dublin. She piggybacked to Newark & then again to Aruba and back again. Flight didn't cost her anything. Good thing since she was the maid of honor. they also get buddy tickets so friends can fly either free or almost fee, just a nominal amount. their pay isn't great but they do get some perks.

    and even if there was no leash law back then, as an "owner" she had a moral responsibility in the least to protect her foo foo nee nee

    Isn't this woman jeopardizing her ability to visit or live in Aruba part-time? It's becoming obvious she's not following established laws around dog ownership.

    She does not have a job as a flight attendant. Her FB page may say one thing but that is not correct She does not work, according to her own court document. She is an osteopath. She "works" when she is in Aruba. However, as a tourist you are not allowed to work.

    The law was dated 2012 but it was not actually put into effect until 2015. So the law did not apply yet. Too bad they waited so long, it is sad for the animals.
