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.

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
25 Courthosue Square,
Suite 121
Clayton, GA 30525
(706) 782-4501

High-tech solution to dog poop – is Atlanta & Georgia Next?n l

High-tech solution to dog poop coming to Israel.

Just wanted to share this article.  It appears the “Pooper Snoopers” are going high tech with DNA.  Make sure to pick up that dog poop.   Biodegradable dog poop bags are a lot cheaper than paying a fine.

Watch out, Atlanta, Georgia, Cobb County, Cherokee County, Woodstock, Marietta, or Canton —a Pooper Snooper may be coming  to your location!!!   Check your city ordinances.   Know the law.  Just do what is right by picking up after your dogs  and ya won’t have to worry (I hope).

Take care, y’all,

GEORGIA – TRAFFIC LAW- HEADLIGHTS – RAIN

I love to ride in the car!  I’m a dog.  It’s usually a fun trip, except for those occasions when other driver’s  don’t know or don’t care about the rules of the road in Georgia.  In my previous  blog, I discussed “Left-Lane Drivers.”  A recent ride to the office on a very rainy and somewhat foggy day, which necessitated my  being reluctantly stuffed into a yellow-slicker rain coat, was filled with constant discussion about other drivers not having their headlights on.  My Mom tallied the number of  vehicles she observed in about three minutes  that did not have their headlights on.  Twenty-two cars!  Comparing this to the number of cars on the road at the time–this was a high percentage!   Georgia Law, O.C.G.A. 40-8-20  states in part:” every vehicle upon a roadway within this state at anytime when it is raining in the driving zone and at any other time when there is not sufficient visibility to render clearly discernible persons and vehicles on the highway at a distance of 500 feet ahead shall display lights and headlights….”  Simple put turn your headlights on when it is raining–even if your state does not have a law for this.   You might save a dog’s life. (like mine).  Drive safely, my friends.
Take care y’all,
