RAINBOW BRIDGE ANIPALS

 I realize I have not blogged since before the Christmas holidays. That does not mean to say that I have abandoned WordPress.  I remain here, in the background, checking comments that my readers have so gratiously  taken the time to leave for me.  I so appreciate each and every response and suggestion, and compliments from y’all.  Your kind words turn a stressful day into a happy relaxation. And,  I am so honored and grateful for the ever increasing page views.  So many of my readers have such interesting and helpful blogs here on WordPress and on Blogger.  I have been educated on dog health, dog food, animal laws from many countries, animal rights organizations, human health and nutrition, history, travel, and so many other topics from Bloggers. 

      If you are on Twitter or Facebook, I also check my Twitter and Facebook pages daily.   I now have over 500 Twitter followers. I have met so many “anipals” on Twitter and enjoy meeting each and every one.  I don’t just click the “follow” button.  I will check you out, see what interests you, where you are from, and “talk” to you.    I am interested in each and every anipal and their human that follows me, and have enjoyed many a lively discussion with most.

     Thanks to Blogger, WordPress, Twitter and Facebook, I now have friends and anipals from all over the world.  I am learning words from languages other than English with the assistance of Google and Bing Translate, or with Babelfish.  Do you know what BOL or MOL mean?  Why, Bark Out Loud and Meow Out Loud!

       So if you Tweet, give me a shout out at:   Twitter.com/TuckTheLawDog.

       Leave your comments here on WordPress or on Blogger. I will be blogging.

       I enjoy all this social media and am grateful for everyone new friend I have met. 

       And to Archie (Facebook & Twitter) and Austin (Twitter) who have this January 2013, taken the  journey to the Rainbow Bridge, enjoy being healthy and able to run and play like puppies once again, my friends. 

       Take care, y’all.

Texas Supreme Court to Rule on Dog’s Sentimental Value – ABC News

Texas Supreme Court to Rule on Dog’s Sentimental Value – ABC News.

I just read this ABC news story about a couple in Texas.  Their dog was euthenized in error by a dog shelter.  The Texas Supreme Court is now considering the issue of “sentimental value” and if it applies to a pet.  This is an interesting case to follow.

Take care, y’all.

Check out this map from the ASPCA to learn which pet stores sell puppy mill dogs. Please do not buy a pet from a puppy mill. Go to your local animal shelter, county or private. No puppy mills. Boycott them. I am a shelter dog.

Dogswell Vitakitty cat treats recalled July 27 2012

Another Friday Follies recall by a pet food company. Why is it they all seem to wait until Friday late afternoon to announce a recall? Stay away from pet treats made in China! Read labels!

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Rabun County Georgia Killing Dogs

Investigation exposes humane society ‘Lucky Dog’ program – Atlanta

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Investigation Rabun County GA-Killing Dogs!!!

http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/19059474

 Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team Randy Travis exposed this–Thank him!

This was claimed to be a no-kill shelter. What these employees have been doing is disgusting and possibly illegal– if so, they should be prosecuted! Taking $100.00 from a donor to save a “Lucky Dog” and then euthenizing these dogs and telling the donors that the dog had been adopted or sent to another shelter!! Watch the Fox 5 Video. The Rabun County Sheriff and the District Attorney should review Georgia Code 16-8-3, “Theft by Deception” and, if applicable to the circumstances, prosecute the offenders.

Voice your outrage:

Rabun County Sheriff
25 Courthouse Square, #3
Clayton, GA
PH (706) 782-3612
Fax: (706) 782-775
Visit their site-they have a direct email. Start emailing!!

Rabun County District Attorney

Littering is a Crime! Pick up your trash!

Tuck at Work

I went to the park yesterday. I go most days to run on the trails.  My mom always carries a  “poop bag” (or two) for my “occasional spills.”   On my drive to the park,  I couldn’t help but notice various “human droppings” along the roadway and in the parking lots:  McDonalds cups and straws, Coke cans, water bottle, thousand of cigarette butts, and even one tennis shoe (which always reminds Mom of George Carlin’s skit about “why is there always only one shoe on the road–where is the other shoe?”).  Why do humans have to litter?   How often do you ever see dog food cans, dog food bags, or dog toys littering the streets and parking lots?  Like, never.  Mom uses baby wipes following my “toilet” but, if we are out in public, she discards them into the nearest trash can, and carries the soiled ones until she finds a disposal.  But that’s too much trouble for some humans–they think they are being discreet when they “place” used Pampers under their cars–and then drive off.  I saw y’all.  Littering is a crime.  It is sad when we need an ordinance because some humans lack respect for others property,   for our environment, and apparently for their own self.    Use trash cans, or, keep your garbage until you get home.

Take care, y’all,
