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!!!

 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

Visit their site-they have a direct email. Start emailing!!

Holiday Inn Express Paducah KY

Tuck is really enjoying his stay here. The staff are all super nice, and they are pet parents, too!
Bonnie even has horses. They have the best cookies. Mom loves the free coffee. They really go out of their way to make me feel at home. I highly recommend this hotel (home).
Take care, y’all,

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,

Memorial Day 2012 – Remember Our Veterans


Remember to give thanks to all those that served our country.  Tuck the Law Dog salutes you all.

Tuck’s Daddy, Uncles, and Cousins served in many branches:  Army, Air Force, Marines, National Guard and Reserves.  He is so proud of them.  Place a remembrance on a forgotten grave.  Shake the hand of a service member or give them a great big smile!  Freedom isn’t free.  Fly the Flag.

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,

Tuck the Law Dog

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,
