    This is fantastic! I am so inspired by this Blog, now if I can just figure out how to grab the badge so I can add it to Tenzings Blog I’ll be a happy camper.

    Oh, this is a great idea! I hope I can re-find all this info. I have waaaaaaayyyyyy toooooo many folders with tooooooo much stuff saved, & often have trouble finding what I’m looking for.

    But, I guess it beats not saving the link at all, eh? ;-)

    I am way behind on the kitties’ blog, and very remiss in my blog-visiting duties….but I am on FaceBook just about every day…hopefully, there will be reminders….

    This is great! You may also be interested in Pit Bulls: Villains or Victims. The whole book is great ammunition against BSL, and it makes a case for the danger in targeting the dogs when it is really the people who would abuse these dogs that are dangerous to our communities, especially to our children. The book started out as a master’s thesis for a forensic science program, so it is well-researched and documented. I have to admit I edited it, but I really did learn a lot about the issues surrounding pit bulls and how detrimental to our society these laws are.

    Nice post! Y’know there are so many people who bemoan the animal injustices in the world…but who do nothing. They may not have the time to commit to working at a shelter, may not have the extra funds to donate to a cause….but i feel like writing a letter is something that most people could find the time and funds to do… great reminder of the importance of something so simple, something so easy.

    Thanks!
