There is a German Petition out right now trying to gather support. Mena has also published the link here as a news story. Go immediately to the following and sign!

http://deutschlandsagtnein.com/?p=1680

Petition Text (Very Rough Translation):

We got a lot last night from Sarajevo; information and pictures of animals which are enclosed in walls and no one will help. Unfortunately, we see that this is something terrible.

How is it possible that no one intervenes with the fate of the animals? Regardless of your country having a lot of problems.

Life does not fight with their feet!!

You want people to accept you into the EU? How do you think that only one normal man will want to have such people in the EU? We respect all people and we take care of everything and everyone. But the killing does not want to live under one.

We urge you to help people who care for these animals, to withdraw them and not wait until it is addressed by the people who live in this house.

This is what happens, we will immediately contact the EU, who will see how you appreciated life of animals. I unfortunately do not have to look for anything good from these people to be reached in the EU.

You can feel free to put this in the newspaper and to address that we do not look the other way as the rest of Bosnia. We see everything, so collect these animals immediately and without any problems, give security guards the ability to withdraw the animals.

Unfortunately I do not write well but I think I understand what all we ask for assistance animals. Thank you."

Blog Translation Above From German to English:

Bosnia-Herzegovina - Jelena Paunovic, compassionate animal lover from Sarajevo, turns desperately to the media. Many stray dogs are being held in a building in downtown Sarajevo under corresponding statutory conditions.

According to Ms. Paunovic, the dogs are collected from the homeowners and apparently killed. The house owner himself is said to have told her over this. An unbearable stench in the area of ​​the house can anticipate the worst. Neither local government nor the veterinary inspection will take care of business.

'I've been everywhere trying to get help - Veterinary, Animal rights activists Orgas, police, property management, etc.

My requests were always rejected and was told that they can not do anything because the house where the dogs are located, is privately owned. This home is located in Pruscakovoj ulici br.3. In this house it stinks for years, no one can sleep at night because of the barking of dogs. Last year I happened to meet the owner of the house and she told me then that she and her husband collect the dogs from there and then and to spend their weekend slaughter house and there. I was shocked!'


The Veterinary known is the case, but claiming it, do about it nothing to you. There, the animal lover was advised to contact the media, psychiatry and social services so that a solution can be found.

Jelena Paunovic: 'If I had wanted that, then I would not go to the veterinary office. Then I made a complaint with the police - and then no one has contacted me. A short time it was too quiet in this house.'

'About a month I'm gone again to the house and I heard dogs barking and photographed. On 03/25/2012 I have recently reported that the Veterinary Services.'

'I was answered at 09.04. That no court order nothing can be done. Since no one wanted to help me, I have decided to appeal to the public and say that there are in this house corpses, the stench is unbearable. And how the dogs can not imagine living there!'

Vet Blog invites all readers to participate in the protest! We stay with Jelena Paunovic continue to report in touch and be on the developments in this matter.

Our partners: Zoo4Fun who has been actively excelled in Ukraine relief 'Stop Killing Dogs' (see photo left), wants to help in this case, stark help. With a monetary donation to the SPCA Wahro, the spot the animal friends a helping hand will and the dog wants to provide for any emergency, and by selling "Stop Killing Dogs" items from his 'shopping for animal welfare' range."

I read she lost her husband years ago. Jelena is in touch with woman's neighbors and they tell the opposite story. Totally opposite. Like that she loves her dogs but doesn't have enough to care for them. She's typical hoarder who collects dogs but can't pay the bills to get them treated. Also that woman needs help (psychiatric). Someone even recommended cleaning that space (her house) and bringing the food to the dogs. You can't be positive about any news circulating around cos people tend to overreact. The real truth is that dogs should get out of there no matter what!!!

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma

LAST NEWS, APRIL 23
Translated from Bosnian newspaper

CASE OF DOGS FROM PRUSCAKOVA STREET: JOURNALIST AND CAMERAMAN ATTACKED

Alma-Alilovic-Kutrovic and Alen Alilovic, a reporter and cameraman from portal Source.ba today were attacked in Pruscakova Street in Sarajevo while they have been trying to get a statement from the other side of case of abandoned dogs - Senka Saric who is collecting them in her building in center of Sarajevo.
We were been physically attacked by Senka Saric - confirmed journalist Alma Alilovic-Kutrovic.
To remember, in this case drew public attention Jelena Paunovic, who few days ago sent a letter to all media to get attention on this problem.

LETTER OF JELENA PAUNOVIC:

My name is Jelena Paunovic. For many years I’m trying to solve the problem of stray dogs, which is collecting Senka Saric in her building in center of Sarajevo. I asked for help everybody: Sanitary Inspection, Communal Inspection, Veterinary Inspection, I gave statements to the media and contacted associations for protection of animals.
All answers on my appeals were that nothing can be done because the building where the dogs are in private. The building is located at Pruscakova Street number 3. For years from that building is spreading unbearable odor, and at night because of barking no one can sleep.
Last summer I met Mrs. Saric. She told that she and her husband are collecting the dogs, then they are taking them in his weekend cottage and there slaughtered. I was shocked!
Therefore, on August 10th 2011 I gave a written statement in the Cantonal Inspection. I was talking with a veterinary inspector Mocevic. She told me that this is well known case and recommended me to contact different media, all inspection services, psychiatric institution and social work service, and she hope after we can together find solutions for this problem. After that I gave a written statement to the police. Until today no one tried to contact me.
For a while in Senka Saric building were no dogs.
About a month ago I went that way and heard some dogs barking, so I took there’s photos. March 25th 2012 again I reported the case to the Veterinary inspection. Their response I received on April 9th 2012. Inspector Joka Hlubna told me about my "assumptions" (how assumption can be something for what I have evidence and witnesses!) that this case is well known, and that Veterinary inspection was intervened several times, but Senka Saric is still collecting dogs. Also I was informed that her building is private property; so neither Veterinary inspection, nor animal rights activists cannot enter there without a warrant from the Court. And that was all!
From response of inspector Joka Hlubna can be concluded that again no one in competent and the Cantonal Inspection, in these case, cannot seek for a court order.
For years I have witnessed many violations of law by Senka Saric and her family, and because I was exhausted from the struggle with "incompetent institutions," I decided to contact the media.
Although I don’t have evidence for that, I claim that in Senka Saric building, in Pruscakova number 3, are also some corpses. The smell that spreads is awful! It is unimaginable how are felling dogs who are living there.

Petition signed, emails sent... I do not know what to add...

This is p-r-e-t-t-y bad. The authorities—hopefully, the courts—need to do something equally cruel to these inhumane adults.

What is really scary is that people like this reproduce and create monster-offspring that are psychology and emotionally more demented than themselves!!! When these dogs relieve themselves, they are trapped in their own urine and feces. I have no idea how long the dogs are living like this before their death. However, if the lady is feeding them for two or three months while they are trapped in the cement walls, she may very well be indirectly contributing to their torture.

She needs a group-following of neighbors to put their minds together to figure out how to save these dogs. As everyone can see, the authorities are not going to do anything, in the very near future, unless they are forced to do so!!!

Translation:

Ich kann nicht lesen, schreiben oder sprechen Deutsch. Allerdings kann ich die Google Translate Seite. Ich hoffe, es richtig übersetzt!


Dies ist p-r-e-t-t-y (sehr) schlecht. Die Behörden-hoffentlich-die Gerichte brauchen, um etwas ebenso grausam zu dieser unmenschlichen Erwachsene tun.


Was ist wirklich beängstigend ist, dass Menschen wie diese zu reproduzieren und zu schaffen Monster-Nachkommen, die Psychologie und emotional stärker dement als selbst sind! Wenn diese Hunde selbst zu entlasten, werden sie in ihrem eigenen Urin und Kot gefangen. Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie lange die Hunde wie diese leben vor ihrem Tod. Allerdings, wenn die Dame füttert sie für zwei oder drei Monate, während sie in den Betonwänden sind gefangen, sie kann sehr gut sein, indirekt einen Beitrag zu ihrer Folter.


Sie braucht eine Gruppe von Nachbarn-folgenden, ihren Verstand zusammen, um herauszufinden, wie man diese Hunde zu retten. Wie jeder sehen kann, werden die Behörden gar nichts zu tun, in sehr naher Zukunft, wenn sie gezwungen sind, dies zu tun!

After all this, I realized that I did not even have an account for logging into and leaving a comment!!!

I DEFINITELY SIGNED!!!

Published a few minutes ago - NEWS FROM RADIO SARAJEVO

SENKA SARIC MUST RELOCATE DOGS UP TO 17h!

SHE KEPT DOGS IN THE HOUSE DOORWAY!

THE CITIZENS BROKE INTO THE HOUSE OF SENKA SARIC!

The situation escalated last night when Senka Saric threatened Jelena Paunovic: "You will never again walk in Sarajevo, you will remember me.”

Meanwhile, Senka Saric attacked also two animal rights activist who came to her house.
The police who were present did not react.
Then came a police patrol on call, they took statements of present citizens, and than Senka Saric was taken to the police station. One animal activist tried to talk to her daughter, in order to help the dogs, however - didn’t find any agreement with her.

This morning in Pruscakova street arrived Veterinary inspection and employs from the animal shelter to rescued the dogs, but Saric didn’t let them come inside without a court order.

It is speculated that in the house doorway are about 10 dogs.
The last night Senka Saric also took dog from girl Tia Atagic, and she doesn’t want to return him.

From the house doorway, where Saric was keeping these animals, were taken two dogs to a veterinary station for examination.

POLICE ORDERED SARIC THAT DOGS MUST BE REMOVED UNTIL 17:00 HOURS.

(To be removed… where? Into her weekend cottage where she was slaughtering them?)

I don't think I have ever felt so completely and thoroughly sick over animal abuse as I have with this. There are a lot of sick things in the world but the Chinese baking dogs alive and this woman cementing them alive for pure pleasure is downright sickening. Who ARE these people?!?! It really horrifies me to think that I share a planet with them. I don't care that they are in a far away country. That is still way too close for my comfort. She should be thrown in prison and the key tossed away.

THIS IS FANTASTIC NEWS.....PLEASE READ - THIS IS REGARDING MY POST ON THE DOGS WALLED UP IN APARTMENTS IN RUSSIA......

This is from Occupy for Animals

Sarajevo: WONDERFUL NEWS !!!

The dogs have been freed from the horror-house. The woman has been arrested!

This picture had generated a massive outcry on FB yesterday.

It's been now three years that Jelena is battling to get these dogs out of their miserable existence but the authorities had always refused to help and didn't want to intervene.

After these pictures were spread on FB yesterday, after activists from all corners of the world phoned and send mails to the police and other authorities who still refused to intervene, citizens of Sarajevo took things in their own hands and freed the dogs.

Read the article published today in the local news using the translation link for your convenience:

Signed petition and sent emails to all those listed above. As the article mentions below, SOS is apparently a local animal advocacy group which is trying to help animals there with the assistance of Germany’s “Helfer ohne Grenzen” (Helpers Without Borders) and vets working for NATO-led forces in Bosnia. I think we should also try to contact this organization based in Germany- “Helfer ohne Grenzen.” If anyone finds the contact info for them, please add this to Michelle's list.

Sarajevo is the same city where poor Vucko had his face blown off with a firecracker. Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia has no animal welfare laws and Bosnia has no plans to introduce legislation to protect animals. This is obviously a country whose govt. is indifferent to animal suffering and we must exert outside pressure as well as help the SOS a grassroots organization who is struggling to change the current indifference of the people there to animal suffering and change attitudes about the importance of animal welfare by focusing on the youth. Based on this article, I would urge every one to take this information very seriously.

This is an excerpt from an article that I found on http://iwpr.net/report-news/animal-cruelty-raises-few-hackles-bosnia

"Animal Cruelty Raises Few Hackles in Bosnia

Activists face an uphill battle in changing a climate of public indifference towards animal welfare.
By Aida Alic - Balkans: Regional Reporting & Sustainable Training
BCR Issue 542,
2 Aug 05
In Sarajevo zoo a large brown bear sits in a cage that is barely larger the animal itself, flapping its paws helplessly against the iron bars every time a child runs past. Whether this gesture should be interpreted as a cry for help is open to question but the traumatised expression in its eyes certainly suggests it is in pain.

The bear’s dismal conditions draw little criticism from the stream of visitors to the zoo. In a country racked until relatively recently by savage ethnic warfare, few appear to have time or emotional energy to consider animal welfare.
The plight of the zoo’s bear is shocking – but no less than that of many pets. “The treatment of animals in Bosnia and Hercegovina is appalling,” said Ivanisevic.

SOS has witnessed cases of pet abuse that almost beggared description, such as animals that had had firecrackers stuck up their backsides. Once, Ivanisevic came across six puppies that had been nailed to the floor.
In spite of scarce financial resources and official indifference, SOS has saved many from a cruel death.
The organisation’s members have no choice sometimes but to shelter animals in their own homes, or in their offices. Their main financial help comes from foreign animal welfare bodies, including Germany’s “Helfer ohne Grenzen” (Helpers Without Borders) and vets working for NATO-led forces in Bosnia.
Bosnia’s cantonal and local authorities have no plans to introduce legislation to protect animals and their indifference to the problem reinforces a public perception that it scarcely matters. Another passer-by was more sympathetic. “These creatures cannot speak for themselves,” he said. “That fact does not mean we can deprive them of their basic rights.”
The SOS is trying to target local youth as part of its campaign to change the tide of public opinion. Members give talks at elementary and secondary schools to raise awareness about the proper treatment of animals.
But they have a long way to go. Humiliation of animals for public entertainment is routine in Bosnia. A television report last October, for example, told the story of a restaurant owner on Mount Vlasic who kept a caged bear to amuse his guests. His piece de resistance was to intoxicate the animal with liquor every day in front of the diners, claiming the bear “simply loves it”.
The continuing popularity of dogfights in the republic is another reflection of general indifference to animal rights. These gory fights are held at discreet locations, mostly involving pit-bull terriers, and generate a substantial profit for the organisers. One dog breeder said audiences at dogfights were not composed of poor and uneducated citizens. “They include doctors, professors, police - people from all levels of society,” the breeder told IWPR.
At the same time, a publicly-funded organisation of dog catchers rounds up strays and disposes of them as it wishes.
SOS is trying to come up with an alternative by setting up a new dog shelter to add to the one currently in existence on the outskirts of Sarajevo, run by the Help Animals organisation.The aim is to provide both a home and medical care for abandoned animals until they find new owners. The search for a location is currently underway."

just when you think you have heard and seen it all, out comes humans who have created a new way to torture our animals. i am heartsick and shocked. how do these monsters even come up with this horrific idea? we must keep on top of this, until the people responsible are obliterated from this earth. there is nothing i can think of to that will justifiably punish these monsters. we must get rid of them and send them to hell. this is by far the most horrendous act of cruelty i have seen yet, and i thought i've seen it all. i am sickened.

It is how it should be. Animals need protecting from the actions of humans. Civilised nations will not accept animals being tortured, abused, and killed for human gratificaton and amusement, but it seems that some nations have a long way to go.

I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for helping with this urgent issue.

You all played a vital role in what transpired for these dogs in Sarajevo, who were rescued by activists. The woman in question was arrested. This is a historic event considering the animal abuses rampant in Bosnia; a monumental milestone for local animal activists there and all animal welfare advocates in the former Yugoslavia at large.

There are simply not enough stars for all of you. You have all of my stars and my heart.

Each and every petition signature, email, comment and share played a significant role in the outcome of this tragic story. We DO have power, and our actions DO make a difference, even at times when things appear to be futile.

I'll send the updated news stories along to you so you can click on the links and see the pictures/watch the videos. I tried to post the translated version of the stories Ekeim provided, but the link went straight to the translate boxes. The links I send will take you to the Serbian sites and I'll provide translations.

Now, if you will all excuse me, I HAVE TONS OF STARS TO SEND. XOX >^..^< Michelle

I just recieved notice that these evil scums have been arrested and the dogs have been freed!

Please go here for photos and information -

http://www.radiosarajevo.ba/novost/79658/uhapsena-senka-saric

Translation - MUP HP just Senka Saric was arrested and taken to the station.

Remember, the problem Shadows Saric and piles of dogs placed in the doorway in Pruščakovoj Street in downtown Sarajevo, known for years. However, in recent days he reached the focus of the public after an animal rights activist, Jelena Paunovic (about which we wrote several times), drew attention to it.

Shortly before his arrest in the street Pruščakovu employees arrived asylum Prača to captured and took the remaining dogs.

During the trial Haustor and search for the dogs. So far found six dogs, but it seems that there are more. Police officers who were with asylum officers, entered the haustor Šarić say they never saw something like that and that is located inside a thick layer of manure.

"Dragan Furtula the PU Centre said that it will tomorrow issue a warrant to search the entire house and orders necessary for the arrival of the inspection - utilities, etc.." She told Radiosarajevo.ba Jelena Paunovic.

Damn it these dogs are going to die by slaughter and this crap of just passing by feeling sorry for them, is as useless as tits on a bullfrog. The damn authorities are doing nothing, the idiot court jester for a veterinarian is turn his cataract filled eyes to this atrocity. So you towns people net to get your act together along with your sledge hammers and get your arses to work on this NOW! There is no way in hell I could walk by this if I was there, I'd be yelling and screaming from the rooftops to get these idiots to gather every tool they could get their hands on and start knocking these walls down and if they didn't then I sure the hell would and then I'd go after these idiots who wouldn't get involved. This is human insanity by the towns people just as much as the bastards who are doing this...They are all guilty and then I would utilize the sledge hammer on the residences of this place, so as they never had a brain left in their evil heads to EVER do this again!!!!!!

Yes, God is faithful - but 'He' allows the humans to direct their lives, apparently not only to their own detriment but also to the detriment of all members of our animal kingdom! What a very sad situation but Karma will get to each and every one, every person will one day have to answer for his deeds on this planet! Do I feel sorry for you if you have ever abused an animal? No, you're getting your just desserts! But I think this woman needs serious help - and the neighbours didn't have the 'guts' to confront her, probably due to her volatile reactions? The level of depravity to which humanity can drop, seems to be a bottomless pit!

"Walled" dogs from Sarajevo rescued after protest wave - detailed photo report; 24. April 2012 – 10:42 AM
--“Eingemauerte” Hunde von Sarajevo nach Protestwelle gerettet – detailierter Fotobericht

Bosnia-Herzegovina - Jelena Paunovic, compassionate animal lover from Sarajevo, turned in desperation to the media. A number of stray dogs

were being held in a building in downtown Sarajevo in horrible captivity.

*Photo 1.* The end of the authorities' long turning a blind eye: arrest of the house owner

According to Ms. Paunovic, the dogs were collected and probably killed. The house owner (Ms. Saric) herself is said to have told her over this. An unbearable smell in the area of the house left terrible hint. Neither local government nor the veterinary inspection would take up the cause.

TierarztBLOG was in direct contact with Jelena Paunovic and could therefore bring one of the first article about the case in the German-speaking world, and here is the first report with heartbreaking photos.

Jelena told us: "I've been everywhere trying to get help - Veterinary Office, animal rights organizations, police, property management, etc. My questions were always rejected and I was told that they can not do anything because the house where the dogs are located is private property. This house is located in Pruscak Street 3. From this house it stinks for years, no one can sleep at night because of the barking of dogs. Last year I happened to meet the owner of the house and she told me then that she and her husband collect the dogs from there and then slaughter them at their summer house. I was shocked! "

The protests put the increased pressure on the authorities in Sarajevo. All necessary departments marched suddenly and did their job, which was previously told Jelena Paunovic to be futile. The fire department opened the front door, the veterinary authorities moved in with vans and moved the dogs to an animal shelter, the police took the owner of the house into custody. On behalf of all animal lovers we thank Ms. Paunovic for her persistence in this case!

*Photo 2.* (no description)

Remark to criticism by some self-appointed "savior truth":

The photos in our report speak for themselves, no one had claimed that the animals are buried alive with body parts. Anyone who can read can see this! The sensational report - which triggered the public to place a really good kick to the authorities - was intended to achieve a breakthrough. TierarztBLOG will continue to be the voice against the flagrant injustices, we will set things in motion in the future!

Below is the photo report of the rescue of dogs:

*Photo 3.* First animal friends gather in front of the Horror house

*Photo 4.* Air hole into the freedom

*Photo 5.* Animal lovers feed the dogs through the wall holes

*Photo 6.* Emergency personnel in move

*Photo 7.* The veterinary office is now also on the spot

*Photo 8.* Veterinarians for the eventual initial treatment

*Photo 9.* Several police units drove on - from the scooter to the van

*Photo 10.* Strong men in front of the door - which firefighters must open

*Photo .* Officials has never been seen in recent months here

*Photo .* Always prepared, the door is opened - we always rely upon these men, even in Sarajevo

*Photo .* The object can be entered, the property owner peeps out

*Photo .* Local media are on the spot - no surprise that the authorities are now diligent

*Photo .* Now the dogs will be freed

*Photo .* Incarcerated, "walled" - miserable living conditions for the the dogs now come to an end

*Photo .* Not a happy ending for some ...

*Photo .* The survivors will be transported in cages

*Photo .* Animal friends are overwhelmed by emotions

*Photo .* What will bring the future? Hopefully something better ...


Our partner Zoo4Fun who has excelled in Ukraine relief "Stop Killing Dogs" wants to help in this case. Assignments on the Zoo4Fun disaster relief donation button will also benefit the SPCA Wahro who wants to grab the animal friends in Sarajevo under the arms.

Sretan epilog slučaja "Pruščakova": Oslobođeni zarobljeni psi! (FOTO)
Happy Epilogue of "Pruščak" case: Trapped Dogs Released! (PHOTO)

Dogs who were trapped in the building at Pruscak Street were released, and the owner of the building Senija Saric was arrested after a full day of action of citizens.

Citizens spent the day demanding that the authorities help the captivated dogs, and when nothing was done, Vedran Borovcanin entered the building and released two trapped animals.

Frightened dogs have bitten him, but fortunately, he suffered only minor injuries. Because of illegal entry into the facility he was arrested, but was soon released, and against him a criminal charges was filed.

Crime inspector Dragan Furtula and staff of Praca shelter soon came to the scene. They pulled out six dogs. Saric was arrested and during the night all the buildings she owns will be searched, including a summer house in Hotonj, in which the alleged killing of abandoned dogs happened.

Cleaning operation will continue tomorrow, as the spaces in which the animals were kept are dangerous for the public health.

Ekeim, you ROCK! We will find it.

Jelena posted a petition against letting this dog abuser free. Allegedly, she'll be released because no one saw indication of the slaughter, which she apparently carried out at her "cottage" outside of town. As if the hoarding and the yards of feces covering her property in the city weren't enough! OUTRAGEOUS!

Please make sure to sign it. It's poster by Simone. We can't allow her to fall through the cracks and start collecting and abusing more dogs.

Here's the link to the petition by Jelena P., posted by Simone:
http://www.care2.com/news/member/525884267/3280695
Please sign everyone, -although, that petition unfortunately has no accurate goal, such as a demand for arresting Mr Saric and charge her for animal abuse, if that is matching the local law. By just telling the story no attorney will be able to do anything about the case, especially when an official complaint is missing.

I've never seen a more caring and passionate group of people than my friends here on Care2! I'm so proud of what you've helped to accomplish! I just became aware of this story because I was unable to access my Care2 messages for several days and am still in the process of catching up.

Kudos to Michelle and all the caring people out there who drew attention to this atrocity and the good people of Sarajevo who performed and/or helped to make this rescue possible!

Anyone got AN UPDATE or news on the story? Has that woman been released again ? (which could be expected for an arrest on charge of "resisting police" wont last over 48 hrs I think.)

Oh my God. Why are humans so inhumane? Article noted and will pass on. This must stop and the offenders must be prosecuted.
My prayers to all who are doing good work to help these poor creatures. God Bless one and all.

This is disgusting and inhumane. The officials in Sarijavo who refused to help should be put into these conditions and left there for a few weeks and see what they would do then. Blessings to you and all the other people who are trying to correct this inhumanity.

What have the authorities done to these people? They know who they are and the conditions have been documented. There's no ambiguity. Are they charged with cruelty? Are there even animal cruelty laws in that country?

This is beyond horrible how can these "people" sleep at knowing what they do to these helpless animals.

I simply don't understand why this keeps going on and on it make no sense to me how it does and all the people that are allowing this to happen aren't in jail or worse.

Humans are just so horrible in so many ways I really can't count and sadly that is a fact.

MAY GOD GIVE THOSE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS THE STRENGTH TO GO THROUGH THEIR TERRIBLE TIME NOW AND FOR ALL TIME AS I AM SURE HE WILL!!!
