And we remember those responsible for your death. Never to be forgotten.
Another year dear Lennox, and still BSL is claiming victims based almost entirely on looks and a tape measure.
Some unfortunate victims are chosen through the over-zealous, ignorant jobsworths of this world.
But others, like you Lennox, become the tragic marks of narcissistic, spiteful, deceitful, and often androgynous excuses for humans, with no other agenda than self-promotion and malice.
In your case, that ultimately back-fired on the grubby individuals involved in a disgusting campaign against you and your family. But it couldn’t bring you back.
So, even though we don’t believe for one second that you were still alive on 11 July 2012, having already been destroyed by Belfast City Council long before that date, today we celebrate your short time with a loving family and hope that you will always remain an ambassador to all victims of the hugely flawed, immoral and unprincipled DDA.
We also remember you sweet Fudge…
You were the innocent victim of a mob-handed, bullying, over-reaction of the cruellest kind.
~ Appalling and tragic as it is, Lennox’s death was set in stone the day Belfast City Council ordered him seized, on Wednesday the 19th May 2010.
In fact many believe Lennox’s destruction was a foregone conclusion the day Lightfoot turned up at the family home days earlier (11th May 2010), compounded by Tallack’s involvement – something he claimed was accidental because he ‘just happened to be in Belfast at the time‘ [link]. Given the many times he’s contradicted himself and forgotten his own lies, it’s probably safe to say that his involvement was anything BUT ‘accidental’.
The mere fact that Belfast City Council had Tallack at its’ disposal is neither here nor there – BCC, with crony Lightfoot’s help, would have ensured the same outcome for Lennox’s fate and found others to do their bidding – after all, there must be other fake ‘experts’ out there dense enough to falsify evidence for a reward of almost eight grand (the ‘official’ fee given to Tallack as a NON-expert witness).
But BCC did have Peter Tallack as cohort to Sandie Lightfoot – the ideal amoral and dishonest double act.
We don’t feel able to legitimately include the ‘official’ date of Lennox’s death announced by Belfast City Council because it’s more than likely he was killed long before that day. Doubters should consider that BCC counsellors consistently refused requests by the family to say goodbye to Lennox; they ignored all of Victoria Stilwell’s offers to take him out of the country, and even refused Sarah Fisher permission to attend Lennox’s execution and take his ashes and collar back to the family.
Add to that more Sandie Lightfoot lies, this time where she allegedly made a habit of visiting Lennox while he was incarcerated, when she supposedly drove miles out of her way to take him gifts and toys – all off her own back, out of the goodness of her heart, in her spare time, yada yada.
What a shame she was inflicted with occasional memory loss and on those particular occasions forgot to take her camera and/or phone, instead having to rely on someone else to provide a photo of a different dog to show her own ‘proof’ of Lennox’s wonderful life behind bars! [link].
But that wasn’t enough for this twisted and warped excuse – she stalked and intimidated her targets on more than one occasion [link], even allowing a photo she’d taken of their home to be used by her disguised Facebook friends to ridicule Lennox’s family [link].
Given what we all know about Lightfoot and Tallack, we end this post with a reminder that all the following were close friends or closely associated with each before Lennox was seized; all of them were on Facebook in one guise or another, and all of them supported each other to the hilt during the two year Hate Campaign – and nothing has changed :

Remembering Lennox, His Family, and All Victims of BSL
A Message from the Save Lennox Campaign:
On April 1st Join Us As We Remember Lennox On His 9th Birthday & All Those Past & Present Affected By Breed Specific Legislation. Help Us Spread The Word About Lennox’s 9th Birthday Campaign called,#EachOneReachOne Aimed At Informing Others About Breed Specific Legislation.
To mark another birthday without Lennox we ask you to reach out and tell someone about Breed Specific Legislation as there are still so many still unaware about BSL and too many innocent dogs are losing their lives. Just like Lennox, these dogs are much loved family pets who have never harmed anyone or anything, their only crime was simply being born looking a certain way.
BSL is wrong, BSL tears families apart, the only way to fight it is to stand together and protest that enough is enough! We demand education not eradication, we demand deed not breed!
The more people educated about responsible dog ownership and BSL the many more lives can be saved.
On April 1st 2014 at 21.00 (9pm) UK time and 16.00 (4pm) EDT join the Lennox campaign for a special Twitter tweetstorm. Here are some ideas of how you can show your support and help spread the word about Lennox’s 9th birthday campaign #EachOneReachOne.
Turn your twitter avatar/profile picture black for 24hrs on April 1st, alternatively you may copy and use the Lennox campaign memorial ribbon avatar/profile picture from this Facebook page or from the @OfficialLennox twitter account.
Change your Facebook timeline picture for 24hrs by copying and using the Lennox 9th birthday memorial timeline cover from this Facebook page.
Update your own Facebook status with Lennox’s story for 24hrs.
Print out an anti BSL leaflet or use the one attached (What You Should Know About BSL) and pass them out in the street or park, ask a shop owner or pet store if you may pin one to a notice board or if you may leave a bundle with them.
We can all help educate others who may not be aware of BSL if each of us reach out and tell one other person, EachOneReachOne.
Lennox will never be forgotten because his spirit lives on in the hearts of his family and in the hearts of millions around the globe who fought for him. Lennox will be forever with us as he is with YOU every time you help others, rescue, adopt, shelter, speak out against cruelty and campaign for the abolishment of BSL. YOU are his legacy, YOU keep his spirit alive, YOU help continue what Lennox could sadly only achieve in death, YOU are Lennox’s Army!
Continue campaigning for truth, continue to speak out and NEVER allow your voices to be silenced no matter how hard it may get… Never give up!
Thank You All. X
You could say that Sandie Lightfoot’s involvement in the Save Lennox Hate Campaign actually began on 11th May 2010 when she paid a visit to Lennox’s owner.
Lightfoot initially made a statement under oath that, when she arrived at Lennox’s home on that day, she was sworn at and told the dog would “rip your head off“. She also claimed the door was slammed in her face.
However, Sandie Lightfoot was accompanied by a colleague on 11th May 2010 (name withheld). That same colleague testified in court that she “did not recall” and was “not aware” that the words “the dog will rip your head off” had been spoken, nor did she recall any swearing taking place, or a door being slammed in anyone’s face.
Subsequently the Judge ordered that neither Lightfoot nor the Belfast City Council legal team could mention that doorstep visit again. In other words, it was to be disregarded through lack of reliable and consistent evidence – in civvy speak, it was ‘a pack of lies‘.
So Lightfoot attempted to lie under oath and got away with it, by the skin of her teeth. It wasn’t the first time, and certainly not the last, as we know:
The following is a copy of a statement given to the legal representatives of Lennox’s owners, relating to the visit by dog warden Sandie Lightfoot and her colleague to the family home on 11th May 2010:
Sandie Lightfoot turned up with another dog warden and asked if the owner (of Lennox) was at home.
As I’d already had a visit from the other dog warden a couple of days before, Sandie Lightfoot knew that my partner Caroline (Barnes) was in hospital, because I’d told the other dog warden previously that Caroline would be in hospital for several days. At the time that dog warden accepted my explanation and said she would come back when Caroline was out of hospital. There was no rudeness, we were both polite to one another.
Lightfoot and the other dog warden turned up before Caroline was out of hospital. Lightfoot asked if the owner was at home but she already knew that Caroline wasn’t, because I’d already told the other dog warden a couple of days before. So I explained again that Caroline would be out in a couple of days, and the other dog warden gestured towards Lightfoot and said “Yes, I told Sandie that”. So Lightfoot already knew that Caroline wouldn’t be there.
Lightfoot said “Well we really need to get access to the dog”
I said “I was just on my way out to the hospital when you called and anyway I didn’t expect you. Why exactly do you need to see the dog or owner, is there something wrong?”
Lightfoot: “Well we would really need to talk to the registered owner about that”
I said: “If there is something wrong, I can pass the message on?”
Lightfoot: “Do you have paperwork for the dogs here?”
I said: “Do you mean licence and stuff? Yeah we have paperwork for all three”
Lightfoot: “I’d need to see it”
I said: “That’s no problem but like I said, it’s my partner who takes care of all that and she has everything in one big envelope somewhere and I’m on my way out, so you’d really need to call back when she’s home, in just a couple of days”
Lightfoot: “Actually I’d really need to see the dog and paperwork today”
I said: “Which dog?”
Lightfoot: “You have an American bull dog?”
I said: “Yes we have an American bull dog cross, a Yorkie and a Boxer”
Lightfoot: “Just the three dogs then?”
I said: “At the moment, yes, but we have foster dogs from time to time. Why, is there something wrong with us fostering or something?”
Lightfoot: “No, we need to see the bull cross”
I said: “Like I said, that’s no bother but I’m on my way to hospital to be with my partner as she’s ill in hospital, but when she’s home you can call back and see him then, no problem”
Lightfoot: “Well if you refuse us entry to see the dog we’ll have to get a warrant and seize it from the premises”
I said: “Why would you need to get a warrant, no one is refusing you entry?”
Lightfoot: “Sure you won’t let us see the dog now?”
I said: “I’m not refusing you entry now, I’m just on my way out and haven’t the time now, and as you haven’t yet told me what’s wrong anyway, then I don’t see why I need to give you access. I told you to call back when my partner’s home from hospital and you can see the dogs and all their paperwork”
Lightfoot: “So you’re not refusing us entry but you’re just not letting us see the dog right now?”
I said: “That’s correct. Come back in a couple of days”
Lightfoot: “Ok, we’ll just get a warrant then”
I said: “What, are you serious? I just said to call back when my partner’s home from hospital and you can see the dogs. Listen, what exactly is this about?”
Lightfoot and her colleague start to walk towards the gate.
I said: “Do you want to tell me what this is about so I can tell my partner?”
Lightfoot: “No, we’ll just get a warrant and come back, seeing as we’ve been refused entry”
I said: “You haven’t been refused anything, but you know what, if you’re going to have an attitude like that when you come to someone’s door, then you can go get your warrant”
Lightfoot smiled sarcastically and closed the gate.
So that was the first time I had ever seen Lightfoot and at no point was there any swearing. Her colleague stated in court that I never swore and she also said she didn’t hear me say Lennox would ‘rip your head off’.
Seriously, who in their right mind would say to dog wardens at your own front door ‘oh, my dog would rip your head off”?
What I have said here is almost word for word of what happened on that day at our door, and I know this well because I’ve written it down for the solicitor and barrister many times and now it’s branded in my mind. The fact is there was no swearing by either party. But yes, Lightfoot did arrive at my door with a nasty and unprofessional attitude.
We thought it might be interesting, and revealing, to have a guess the author slot on the blog.
Original, uncensored screenshots will be posted at a later date, but for now we’ve removed anything that could identify the people commenting; the only clues being in the content and style of writing.
Apart from giving us the chance to make use of unused material and screenshots buried in previous posts, it’s a very handy way of identifying individuals through their writing characteristics without a false name diverting attention away from the real identity, but we’ll also add a few screenshot comments from people who have used their own names.
Apologies if some of the screenshots seem a bit ‘random’, there’s a reason they’ve been used which will become obvious when the authors are revealed.
The comments option on this particular blog entry is temporarily disabled.
Guess Who Pt I
1: This person was found stalking Victoria Stilwell, DDA Watch and the Free Lennox page on Facebook :
While we’re showing this, can anyone, anyone at all, please send us evidence that Lennox’s owners : a) ‘collected money fraudulently‘; b) ‘made accusations about dozens of people that are simply untrue‘; and c) ‘made threats, been abusive and harassed anyone who ever asked a question‘ – [link].
It’s interesting that this person offered to provide proof of those accusations only via private message and didn’t feel able to post it in public anywhere, at any time. Please bear that in mind when we reveal the author next week.
» » » » » » »
The same person who wrote that also composed this:
“It does not mean they are expert. Their evidence to the court is their opinion“!! 🙂
It doesn’t matter which one of the HC wrote this, it’s still a total contradiction of everything they’d previously agreed upon to say, but it suited this person’s vindictive agenda on that occasion to change tack (yet again). We’ll get to that another time.
For the moment, please note and keep in mind the final paragraph in that post.
» » » » » » »
3: We’re including this one not so much to compare styles of writing, more for the content :
We’ll cover what’s been said here later, but for anyone who hasn’t followed the HC campaign from the beginning, basically Terry Twoons was a fake profile set-up/used-by Sandie Lightfoot, and it disappeared darn quick! As soon as Lightfoot was rumbled in fact. More on that another time.
» » » » » » »
4: A warning to owners of seized dogs. If you upset certain members of the HC, don’t be surprised if you find yourself on the receiving end of one of their dirty tricks campaigns :
This person, and several other HC members, certainly did try their hand at ‘reporting’ Lennox’s family to the tax and benefits offices. Didn’t do them any good of course, because there was nothing to report, therefore no outcome.
Interestingly, some members of the HC were a bit shy about using their own names to do the ‘reporting’. Now that could be because several of them are on benefits themselves (Lennox’s family was not), or it could be they risked further damage to already sullied reputations owing to their complete lack of self-control.

8: Two people commenting together, side by side on Victoria Stilwell’s page. Unusual considering one of them claims to have had nothing to do with the Hate Campaign nor the people in it up to their necks, and therefore that person surely wouldn’t be seen dead stalking Victoria Stilwell ? :
We’ve already wiped the floor with their Attorney General claims [link 1 / link 2] although to be fair it wasn’t difficult, and nobody took any notice of the HC prattling on about bomb threats and incendiary devices, because we all have Internet access and found out for ourselves what a crock that was. In fact even BCC couldn’t answer questions about their own accusations. But we’ll cover that subject in another blog entry as it’s something we haven’t touched on before. Besides, it will give us the chance to show more examples of the bile spewing forth from people who currently would prefer to be seen as innocent and squeaky clean.
9: Before we leave Part I, here’s another snapshot of those same two people, who had nothing much to do with one another apparently, but here they’re found commenting on one of their own personal Facebook pages. What a coincidence, not :
Guess Who Part II coming soon
Hello Ted, your completely unaltered comments are activated now. What, surprised?
Anyone who hasn’t commented on the blog before has to be approved, that’s to stop the odd airhead from Lem Thirteen or The Lav posting inane and childish remarks when we’re not around, as they’ve tried in the past.
We’ve also screenshot your comments so they can be covered better here, and you’ll find them below, although we’ve blanked out your IP address.
Looking at the overall questions, in a nutshell, the short answer to the whole lot is ‘You reap what you sow‘ Ted.
As we said right at the start, the purpose of this blog is to draw attention to things that have been said and done by members of the Hate Campaign. We’re aware you don’t like the term ‘Hate Campaign’, but it’s a step up from ‘Syco’, so not too bad in the circumstances and, in any case, it happens to be true.
We’ve also maintained right from the start that we control the topics and do not answer questions unless we feel the need, that’s our prerogative, and we have never pretended otherwise. As you’ve been reading the blog regularly in one guise or another, you should know that.
Also from the off we explained that we were not directly involved with (what you all like to call) the ‘core’ of the Save Lennox campaign. Obviously over the last few months we’ve become acquainted with many of them, in fact we wouldn’t have access to most of the evidence without them. That doesn’t mean we run a message service, so if you want to draw attention to any one of them directly, we suggest you do what comes naturally – use your own page, Deed not breed or The Lav, since they seem to be the only outlets you have left.
As far as pillow cases go, white or otherwise, nope, we don’t wear them.
The ‘abusive’ remark is subjective. You’ve all been exposed and caught red-handed, so from your point of view it’s a completely natural and expected reaction to make your accusers out to be the villains of the piece. It’s what happens when bullies and liars are confronted.
It’s pretty much the same as above in that you’re accusing your own personal hate targets of now being the bullies and abusers, and all because you’ve been outed. You’re backed into a corner so it’s fight or flight – a bit of both so far.
The KKK analogy is utterly ridiculous; they’re an organisation based on shocking and disgusting principles and your preferance for mentioning them every chance you get just makes it appear as if you share the same values. If you do share those values then fair enough, but at least spit it out and make yourself clear.
And ditto Comment 1 regards us blogging anonymously. You have a choice; read our blog, don’t read our blog. The time will come when (according to her) Mel Page’s solicitor and local police will have done their job and all will be revealed, including HC’s antics and hidden profiles. Until that day we can all carry on the way we are – the HC with more fakes than a mannequin factory, and us with our little blog.
In the meantime, clearing out comments on The Lav, deleting Tweets, closing down Facebook profiles and unpublishing pages, none of that will do an ounce of good any more.
Your wires are a bit crossed regards proof; take another look and read what we actually have said, and then take on board our ‘prerogative’ comments above. Oh and Ted, it’s best to keep in mind that we don’t care what you think.
The reason ‘why?’ is an easy one, we’ve answered that many times before and, if we ever doubted ourselves for a second, all we’d have to do is pop over to a Lem page (currently Lem Thirteen) or The Lav, or go through our cache of screenshots, to confirm what everyone except you and that very small band of malicious people can see a mile off.
As for insisting both you and Mel Page are innocents in all this and were never involved, that’s a joke. It’s completely false and you know it (link). Your constant need to explain yourself and comment on Lem Thirteen to rally the dwindling troops makes it very obvious that you’re really wondering what kind of proof we have and when we’re going to use it.
You should have thought about that long before creating fake profiles to pursue a hate campaign, under the delusion that you’d get away with it indefinitely.
What you both should have done was – well, not done it in the first place;simple as that. You should have thought about the repercussions. You can’t blame anyone else but yourselves; nobody ‘made’ you do anything.
More vindictive and spiteful photoshopping from the Hate Campaign. After dressing up the photo in balloons, the Hate Campaign then went on to ridicule and celebrate the fact that Lennox had been seized.
Whoever took that photo either stood and faced the house, pointing the camera/phone directly towards it (in full view of other residents) or was inside a vehicle [link].
Bearing in mind the house is in a close (cul-de-sac), a vehicle such as, say, a Belfast City Council dog warden van, would have to be driven all the way inside to turn around, or reversed into the close from the road. Either way, the driver would have got out of the vehicle, or had her hand stuck outside in order to get an image that clear.
Who could possibly have posted that comment on the now defunct Boycott Boycott Belfast page – the charmer who took the photo, the weasel (apologies to weasels) who supplied it, or the dirtbag who photoshopped it, assuming it wasn’t the work of just one single twit?
The admin who made the comment either wanted to give the impression she’d taken the photo or is admitting to it, which complicates things as far as Lightfoot is concerned really.
For sake of argument, we have to consider that it was someone else (or Lightfoot disguised as someone else).
We know the (now removed) Roxanne Summers‘ ID’s and Heather Jones‘ profiles were among the admin on BBB, and we also know the real people behind those ID’s are still very active [link]. But the only person likely to find herself parked outside the Lennox family home is Sandie Lightfoot.
So although it seems convoluted, there’s really no need to overthink it.
Roxanne Summers / Heather Jones / aka (link), says:
“Is that Lennox’s chain on the chimney?”
“Is Tinkerbell one of the celebs lining up to help save Lennox?”
“Can you believe this is what they were twitting when I was taking the photograph…”
“It can’t be Lennox’s chain on the chimney because it’s not bolted to a wall”
Ruth McKinley (Facebook) replies: “Smokin. Who lives in a house like that 🙂 ”
Roxanne Summers / Heather Jones / aka (Facebook) says:
“I do believe that is **** Close. Now who could live in a house like that?”
“Well not Lennox anyway lol“
