As read on Zoo Too:
"NEW YORK -- Pennsylvania lawmakers have just made it a little tougher for puppy mill operators. Governor Ed Rendell, on Thursday, signed the law which now bans the practice of docking tails after five days of age, debarking and surgical birth on dogs, unless performed under anesthesia by a veterinarian.
"It is hard to believe that operators of puppy mills -- individuals with no veterinary training -- sometimes cut out the vocal cords of dogs and even perform Cesarean sections," Sarah Speed, of the Humane Society of the United States, said of these painful and unsafe procedures commonly performed on dogs at large-scale puppy mills.
The bill passed the legislature with strong bi-partisan support and because of the efforts of humane organizations across the commonwealth, including the HSUS which in a released statement thanked Governor Rendell and Representative Caltagirone for "their leadership in advancing this measure."
Let this be just the begining!

Everyone else was writting so I figured I had better too. Not much to say other than I wish mom would do something about those chickens. They sneak up behind me and bite my butt. Then they stand at the door so I can't get in or out. I was here first! They should back off! When I tell them that I get in trouble. Not fair! What's a boy to do?!

Well, we watched this show called Leader of the Pack. Even dad liked it and he's not as big on dog shows as mom. It's a reality show where a family(2 parents 2 kids) gets to live with 8 dogs in order to pick the one that is right for them to adopt. They do challenges and learn about proper care and then when someone gets to "take a walk" (voted off) the show follows that dog to it's new home and their new parent talks about why they wanted that dog. This is the best reality show ever! So, Sunday night 8 o,clock on HGTV, I'll make the popcorn!
