I don't like puttin' votey things in my diary. But this is very much dog related. We are sorry if anypup is upset by this issue. Peoples use votin' to resolve some of their differences. Maybe this information will inspire more Missouri peoples to vote. Although, it is sad laws are needed to make some people do the right thing. Here goes, this was sent to us by the Petfinders:
Dogs in Missouri need your help. Why should you care about dogs in Missouri? Because in your city there is a pretty good chance you have a local pet store selling puppies from a Missouri puppy mill. In fact, Missouri exports up to a million puppies a year all across the U.S. (30% of U.S. puppy mills are in Missouri), and this November, Missouri voters will get to mandate common-sense humane standards for puppy mills at the ballot box.
But the folks who profit by cutting corners on humane care are pulling out all stops to try to quash this important legislation. I applaud the Humane Society of the United States and our Missouri colleagues' efforts to bring about change for over 200,000 breeding dogs. Join us to get the word out to all Missourians to vote YES! on PROP B. Post it on Facebook; e-mail your friends. Help the dogs!

Some votey things are worth barking about, Pepper! My grandpawrents live in Misery, and I'm gonna tell my daddy to be sure to tell them about Prop. B. We're not against legitimate breeders who work to perfect their breeds (I came from one!), but commercial breeders who breed fur profit are a whole different story! Grrrrrr!!
Misey!! BOL!!! I toadally agwee wif whut Hershey sayded. Him r a boice ob weason an' I fink HIM needs ged intu pol'tics!! Sewiouswy!!
I meended, "Misery"!!
Lets just outlaw those places of bad miseries wherevfur they may be!
Our neighbours had a doggy who was used fur her pup making abilities. And then almost thrown away like trash! GGRRR!
She ws a nervous unadjustrd dog, who couldn't even live inside, she was so badly mentally deranged from kennel life. Poor thing. She could not accept love, even when it was being lavished upon her.
Would anyone in their right mind want to allow this to continue?
Stories like that make my mommy's face windows all leaky, Freckles. What's the matter with some hoomans??!
Just dont think passing any Bill will do alot.. cos sadly it doesnt.....as we found out in Oklahoma...... you can pass a bill.. then you have to police it........ and they dont and wont.. and why? Cos its big money.
Sad and sick.. and I am far from being a cynic...... and I also know we HAVE to keep on trying.. and WE WILL ...... caos they cant throw us away.
Sure do hope the Proposition against Puppy Mills passes.
And Flicka's right, once you get it passed, you have to enforce it. But that is true with every law.
Thanks fur barkin' in everypup! I know this is not a fun light hearted entry.
I agree with Flicka that just passin' a bill is not enough. But perhaps with the passage of this bill more folks will be made aware of the plight of pup mill dogs. Then perhaps more folks will not be buyin' pet store pups. Then perhaps more mill folks will decide it's not worth it and stop engaging in this business.
The situation is a big mess. The humans have to start somewhere and the steps can be agonizingly small. But they have to start somewhere.
I would vote for that, but since I am from Texas and a dog, don't think I can. But I think it's great to spread the word about it!
Hi Ms. Pepper and friends. Ms. Pepper, our mommy copied your entry onto our Dogster pages and her facebook page. She said you wouldn't mind cause this is important information. She's asking her friends to share it down the line. Thank you and take care. *DAXi and SLY*
Of course, we don't mind! In fact, we're very touched! Thanks much, sweet pups!
