Update: 6-13-2006 It's been nearly a month and the photo of Hershey is still on Ravinwood Farms website. When I first contacted them on May 14th, they had told me they would have it removed. They said their webmaster was very busy.
Today I was told
"Hi I am the owner of ravinwood farms, and I believe we spoke earlier and my webmaster is working on it. I promised you she would remove it and she willl. She is some what back logged so she asked that you please be patient. She will get it off. As soon as that picture is removed then I expect you delete the blog, Otherwise you will hear from my attourny. It is not my fault that my down home photograher used deceipt and fradulent pictures and sent them on website. Meiling looks exactly like you dog. I am sorry it happened. It will be removed."
I am now wondering, if their “down home photograher used deceipt and fradulent pictures”. Why would they want to sue me? They should be going after the “down home photograher”. Also, would a breeder really not know if a photo is of their own dog? Are they telling people who contact them that Hershey is one of their "under 6 pound" dams? I know if I were a breeder and someone posted a photo of a dog that was not my own, I would have noticed, and that photo would have been removed pronto. I wonder how long Hershey has been posted on their website posing as Back Forty Meiling. I am also wondering if Back Forty Meiling is a real dog? Or just a prop for a dog that does not even exist?? So many questions, so little answers.
