My local shelter has blocked the ability to save the pictures of their animals, for some strange reason.  I posted a question on their Facebook page, but this week I will feature Tootsie from the next county.

TOOTSIE

Labrador Retriever Mix: An adoptable dog in Laurel, MD

*Courtesy Posting*
Hi, I am a sweet older girl looking for my forever home. My last owner had me for the last 8 yrs and recently decided I was disposable. I am currently being illegally harbored in a one bedroom apartment with another dog, We don’t like each other very much and it has made for a highly stressful environment. I love children, and miss my 4 yr old little girl. I would love if my forever home had kids!! I am very gentle and laid back. I am crate trained, know basic commands and am up to date on all my vaccines. I am about 10 yrs old, spayed and weigh about 65lbs. If you or anybody else would like to help my dream come true please contact Heather at 410-703-5018 ASAP. This is a time sensitive matter and the clock is ticking.

Love and Licks,  Tootsie

8.12.13 Monday Mischief: No Crabs For Dinner

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Crab cages are empty.  All the better because we would probably just throw them back anyway.  Someday the dogs are going to get their noses clawed.  Can’t wait to get that picture.

4.12.13 Follow Up Friday: Sum.. Sum.. Summer Time

Go Home, Lil' Baby

Go Home, Lil’ Baby

Spring/Summer hit the Mid-Atlantic big time this week.  So the girls and I were down by the water a lot.  The week started out with all this very terrible squirrel activity, and my little murderers monsters sweet doggies were not aware of the havoc they reeked for their tired sensitive animal loving Mom.  I find it interesting that we brought squirrel baby  #2 to the park to find a safer nest and ever since then Sofie has refused to walk to the park with me.  Maybe she does not want to bump into the baby she almost killed.  (I am only just now thinking of that).

I haven’t been blogging about Sofie’s difficulties this week, but I have posted them on Facebook.  Do you follow DOGDAZCATS2 on Facebook?  It is nice to also have that avenue to actually have conversations with other pet lovers outside of just the comments in a daily blog post.  Please do come visit our page and LIKE us so that we know who you are and we can LIKE you back.  A ‘Like’ in Facebook, is a ‘FOLLOW’ in WordPress.

dup0080402ask_prvSofie has refused to walk down the block to the park.  She started this on Monday.  She gets half way down the block and sits down (little stubborn Sheltie thing that she is) and wants to go home.  It has gotten hotter and hotter each day, but I don’t think that is it because if it was that bad outside, I would not have gone for a walk.  We even walked with Mojo (her buddy).  But no go!

The interesting thing is she will take the similar distance walk in the other direction, to the river. Go figure?  Is it the baby squirrel sending psychic messages to turn back?

I started her on 50 mg of Benadryl (antihistimine) just in case it is allergies (1 mg for every pound of dog the vet says).

Thank you Readers for liking the games we play down by the water, especially when we found Lucy, our neighbor’s Jack Russell Terrier at the dock hiding in a boat.

I am sorry to report that my stupid state of Maryland was not able to agree on the bill that would have saved many Bully Breed and Bully-Mix owners from having to possibly give up their pets because of Breed Discrimination in the state. It was all because of one sentence that the Senate and House differed on.  I am just appalled and ashamed at the things that lawmakers sometimes do.

My step-daughter lost her best friend’s 18-year-old brother on Wednesday in a car crash with 3 other boys.  The cause – excessive speeding.  Please remember that nothing is worth driving that fast for.  Speed kills so many people, animals, and ruins lives forever.  Talk to your kids, today!  And talk to yourself too!

That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.

2.26.13 Don’t Allow Breed Discrimination

There has been a great deal of discussion lately about breed discrimination.  In Maryland, where I live, there is deep discrimination against pit bulls and mixes that look like pit bulls.  Last year, the Court of Appeals (that is our highest state court), passed a ruling that said that all Pit Bull dogs are ‘inherently dangerous.’ On top of that they said that Landlords would be held responsible if anyone who they rent to has a Pit Bull dog and it bites someone.  This is out and out breed discrimination. 

The ruling stemmed from a dog bite inflicted on a child by a dog who lived his life on a chain and was not adequately socialized.  How sad for all involved.  A 10 year old child and his family were traumatized, which is terrible.  But the family did not just sue the owner, they also sued the Landlord (a 92 year old woman who happened to die before the case was finished).  The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the boy’s family and against the Landlord, saying that the Landlord was responsible because she should have known that there was a pit bull on her property, and that all pit bulls are inherently dangerous.  I am sorry but all dogs, especially if they are tied up have the potential to bite.   

kissing pitsYou may wonder what all this means, so let me try to explain.  Let’s say I had three dogs: Louise (hound/lab), Sofie (sheltie/corgie), and Sweet Pea (a Pit Bull).  If someone broke in to my house and Louise attached them, the person that broke in would be at fault for being on my property.  But, if Sweet Pea bit them, I would be at fault for owning a Pit Bull.  Not only would I be at fault but if I was a renter, my Landlord could be sued because I have a Pit Bull.  

Shelters are filling up with any dog that even looks like a Pit and they are having a really hard time getting them adopted out.  Insurance companies are refusing to insure people with Pit Bull dogs.   Last week, Maryland Sen. Brian Frosh (D-Montgomery County) pushed a bill that would counteract the anti-pit bull court ruling, the Capital Gazette reports. The House unanimously approved the bill so it heads to the Senate next.

I do hope that breed discrimination in Maryland does not become the law of the land.  What would you do if all of a sudden your dog was deemed ‘inherently dangerous,’ and your Landlord said the dog had to go?  

Sometimes people ask me if Louise is a Pit Bull – I don’t know what I would do if someone tried to take her away (I think I might bite them (I believe humans are inherently dangerous)).
