Most Expensive Animal? Man Buys New Dog At £10,000

Bob was bought for almost £10,000 by an anonymous bidder at auction, beating the previous record of £8,400 which was set last October.

Bob’s 82-year-old trainer has now had three record-breaking sales in three years.

John Bell, a retired farmer of Howden, East Yorks, bought the 15-month-old sheepdog for £315 when it was 13 weeks old and trained it for life in the field.

A year later, Mr Bell has sold Bob to a telephone bidder — thought to live in the United States — for £9,240 at Skipton Auction Mart.

Mr Bell told The Telegraph that the dog’s temperament and eagerness to pick up new tricks made it one of the best sheepdogs he had ever come across.

“He was very obedient and always good with the sheep,” the trainer said.

“He had a lovely character and a good temperament, he was calm but intelligent and always responded to the commands. The standard of work he was capable of doing was excellent, he got the hang of it very quickly. He was a natural.”

Mr Bell, who is currently training eight dogs, said: “I always try to keep the dogs interested and happy rather than going on and on until they get bored like a child at school, so I kept teaching him new things and he kept learning.

“He is a very good dog, everybody who saw him thought the same. Bob is one of the best I’ve seen.”

He said the secret to producing a champion working dog was spotting the intelligent ones when they are puppies, and good training.

“Some are more talented and will do better than others, of course, like people, so you have to spot the signs. One of the biggest skills is spotting the potential in a young dog.”

Mr Bell started training sheepdogs as a teenager, selling them to local farmers for between £15 and £20.

He went on to own his own farm in Lancashire and dog training fell by the wayside, but he took it up again 15 years ago when he retired.

“I started again as a hobby, and it has turned into a passion,” he said.

The married father said he features his dogs on YouTube, the video-sharing website, before he sells them, and invites potential bidders to his farm to see the herders in action.

Mr Bell, who in his younger days was an accomplished runner and rugby player, has now sold three dogs for a record price at official sales for animals under 12 months old.

Previous dogs sold by the trainer at the Skipton Auction Mart — where he also bought Bob 12 months ago — have gone on to achieve high-profile successes in sheepdog competitions, including both English and Scottish national trials and an international driving championship.

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

on

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
