MY STORY

My name is Tami and Sophistipaws is my hobby with my furry apprentices The Kuddlie Krew who are all rescues. 

The Kuddlie Krew are my gorgeous boy Cockapoo Barkley Bear 5, Shitzu ex puppy farm breeder girl Molly 4, Cavachon ex puppy farm breeder girl Pixie 3 and Finley our crazy, loving Romanian Heinz 57 5 month old pup (affectionately nicknamed wrecking ball due to his habit of running full pelt at everything)

They're My Furry Babies and My World. 

My Inspiration

We sadly lost our beautiful Cavapoo girl Daisy (the inspiration behind the forthcoming Daisy's Voice) in May 2021 after a short, distressing battle with aggressive mammary cancer as she was used as a breeding machine in an Irish puppy farm for 5 long years of hell before she was discarded to a rescue. 

Sadly mammary lumps that were removed when she was spayed weren't sent off for biopsy by Many Tears Animal Rescue Wales. They "didn't deem it necessary" despite the fact it denied her of the treatment and longer life she could potentially have received. She had no symptoms until two months before she died.

This is Daisy.. she was 6 1/2 yrs old when she died in May 21

 

My Story

After coming seconds from losing my life in September 2018 following a series of catastrophic traumas I have been left suffering with crippling Complex PTSD flashbacks and anxiety which has changed my life forever. Having previously been a high flying international banker to be left with a severe mental illness, penniless and without family was a huge blow to my life.

It has been a very lengthy and heart-breaking few years of therapy and rebirth but every day I am blessed to be here fighting the fight for my babies and Daisy.

With PTSD some days are fantastic, others awful, but my dogs are my strength and my constant companions. My love for them transcends anything I've ever known and theirs for me. 

On my worst of days I only had to look at my gorgeous Daisy and her resilience and trust to realise there is always a silver lining.

She was and remains my shining beacon of light.

The loss of Daisy hurts acutely every day because it was so unjust what happened to her but I made her a promise before she closed her eyes for the last time that I would tirelessly fight for justice for her, Molly, Pixie and all the half a million other dogs out there suffering abuse and cruelty imprisoned in UK puppy farms.

My Mission

I have made it my mission to bring attention to the horrors of puppy farming and the loopholes in the laws that are being blatantly exploited by puppy farmers. Lucy's Law was touted as a law that would stop the horrors of puppy farming but has in reality has made it far, far worse.

I am launching the Daisy's Voice Campaign (www.daisysvoice.com) in 2022 to fight for legislative change on puppy farms. Councils are handing out licences for 100-800 adult dogs annually with little regard for the intolerable abuse contained in these battery farms nor the poor adherence to the Dog Breeding Act and the Animal Welfare Acts. Wales and Ireland are the worst

Do follow us at www.daisysvoice.com and social media when they launch in 2022 and back me in getting justice for these innocent dogs who are tortured and abused for money. Puppy farming is about Greed and it has to Stop.

My girl deserved a much better and longer life than the one she was cruelly dealt and her absence is agony. Cancer stole my mother and then took my baby girl...it is a brutal disease that leaves carnage in its tracks.

                                                   Summary

I hope the story of myself and Daisy is an inspiration to others out there who may be battling trauma / PTSD or have lost a dog. I know there are many.

Most of all, I hope you love my things and will help support me with Daisy's Voice and in turning Sophistipaws from a hobby into a new career.

HOPE RESCUE

We support Vanessa and the incredible team at Hope Rescue in the work they do. 10% of every sale from Sophistipaws goes to them so you'll be supporting some great work with your purchase. 

As a final note. Remember... Be positive, keep your head up to the sky and NEVER give up even if life deals you the worst trials to bear.

A smile and a kind word is all you need to make someone's day.. never forget that...you could save someone's life. A kind Doctor saved mine and that kindness has given me a new purpose dedicated to giving puppy farmed dogs a voice.

Loads of love Tami, Barkley Bear, Molly, Pixie, Finley and Daisy the Angel xx
