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.

SEPTEMBER 11, THE WORLD TRADE CENTER, AND, PATRIOT DAY

http://www.september112001.com/    (Check out this site)

My Mom remembers exactly where she was and what she was doing when she first heard the news about the attacks on the World Trade Center – Twin Towers.  She told me how it was all so unbelievable–like she was in a dream.  She recalls being glued to the TV and praying for those that had been injured or died, and hoping that none of her friends were in the towers.  She, like many others, sadly learned that someone she knew  that worked there did not make it out–a young man, early twenties, just graduated college the year before and was so excited to be working in New York City.  The  anniversary of this tragic event is next Tuesday.  Say a prayer not only on that day,  but pray every day that this will never again happen on American soil.  Give thanks to those that defend our country and to those who daily monitor terroristic activity in the hope of preventing another tragedy.  Value our freedoms.  Don’t take it for granted.  Live life to the fullest, my friends.

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:

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,

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,
