Gail King (Oprah's BFF) believes in the toothfairy and MSM

So… yesterday I was watching Oprah… I know, I know. I hate to even admit I still catch her show if I have absolutely nothing else to do at that particular time. Hat tip to Janet C. She posted a transcript of a portion of the conversation so I decided to throw up a post …

Midland Ontario continuing its legacy of illogical dog bylaws

The town of Midland recently amended their dog bylaw. They actually didn't change much other than increasing fines; however they were already on the “no fly” list for dog owners. Looks as though they are choosing to remain on the illogical list and maintain their status in the **ban plus club. ** the ban plus …

Court rules Miami-Dade County pitbull ban unenforceable

KC Dogblog has a good post about that here. The Netherlands tossed, UK is on the verge… many towns, cities and counties have already …

Is HSUS fabricating stories to further their agenda?

I came across an interesting article written by a physician named Joe Abraham from Louisianna. Dr. Abraham points out that something smells fishy in the HSUS camp (my words no offense to fish).

Military are thanked for risking lives by banning their dogs

Quote of the week

The town of Vauxhall, Alberta recently updated their canine bylaw. The new dog by-law passed unanimously at the first reading.

Wayne Pacelle's fingers caught in the Helmsley cookie jar

It has been a banner week for catching the animal murderers (HSUS) in the act. The waves have been abuzz with a solid case of proof that the real agenda of animal liberation groups such as HSUS, PETA and their tentacles is to eliminate the animals and cash in on the cow (pun intended). HSUS …

Just when you think you've seen it all

The media whores are at it again!

Editorial, More Needless Dog Days Ahead

Our “staff” reporter wrote an excellent editorial in the Mississauga News! To put dog owners, in the absence of any wrongdoing whatsoever, into the untenable position of having to prove not only a negative, but also an impossible one, is an insult to democracy and is, to be blunt, un-Canadian. It is a must read …
