I know I have already done a post for today, but I just received this and considering how much doom and gloom I have been posting I just felt it was necessary, no, make that mandatory that I share this link with you.

Spiders, indeed.


Are you next?

In my inbox this morning was an email asking me for any help I could muster for a Doberman owner in APACHE JUNCTION, ARIZONA. This is a story of an OWNER and a very small time breeder who appears to have done everything right, but for one thing. That one thing being her failure to put up a privacy fence so people couldn't see into her back yard.

This is a link to another blog site. A site owned by someone who knows the person in question. Knows and is vouching for her. See I'm not going to just post any and everything I'm sent. I actually attempt to do a little due diligence and make sure the story can be verified before sending it on. This one is true, true in all its horrible ramifications. It should also serve as a warning to every single one of you who owns even so much as one dog.


After you read what is happening, you also need to know that this owner/breeder is not the first one to have this happen. Because of the way the last election went every single animal owner, bet it pet or farm, is now in serious danger of losing all they hold dear to them and maybe even more.

I realize that many people like nothing better than to call me Chicken Little. Well, guess what? You can call me anything or nothing, just so long as you wake up to what is going on and get a backbone. Stand up and be counted. Don't let this sort of thing happen in your town or county. However, if you were asleep and not bothering to protect your freedoms, then the very least you can do is start to fight NOW. Find someone who is planning on running for office in the next election, make sure then know H$H$ for the evil it is. Make sure they understand the difference between animal welfare vs. animal right or as they are now calling themselves animal protectionists. Please don't continue to sit on your hands until it is too late and there are no more animals.

Louisville KY

Now I realize that I did promise some of you that I would go back to dog training stuff and honestly I have every intention of doing just that. However, (you knew that was coming didn't you?)I am having a very difficult time convincing myself there is any point to worrying about training dogs if there are to be no more dogs.

For your reading education I am including something that is currently going on in Louisville, KY. Home of one of the most dangerous animal HATE laws currently on the books.


For those living in Louisville, KY: Metro Animal Services now has in place a Task Force which is operating under color of law, illegally seizing animals. A member of the Task Force contacts people who have advertised puppies or kittens in the Courier-Journal, on www.Louisville-pets.com, LouisvilleMojo.com, or craigslist.com (and possibly other sites). This member, a Louisville Metro ACO, poses as a puppy buyer, and when granted access to the property in that guise, does an inspection. Then, immediately upon leaving the property, the ACO signals to the other members of the Task Force (which inexplicably include Louisville Metro Police Officers), who then arrive on the doorstep demanding entry and threatening to seize the animals.

Up to this point, ACOs have been granted access and animals have been seized. Those animals are not returned to the owner without extortionate fines (well over $300 per animal), and penalties including spaying/neutering of the parents and vaccinations of the puppies regardless of age.

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THIS SITUATION: Do not panic! REFUSE ENTRY to police and ACOs alike UNTIL A SEARCH WARRANT IS PRODUCED, describing your property and the probable cause upon which the warrant is based, and signed by a judge. CONTACT AN ATTORNEY!

Follow-up. The above information was posted on the Louisville craigslist.com site and someone protested its presence. It was then removed. Mind you, I’m an outsider, but it would seem to me that many polite yet strongly worded protests should be sent to craigslist in protest. Slipping in information about what is happening could also be done each time a person places any announcement on that list. Just some random thoughts on this cold Sunday morning.

Don't think it won't happen anywhere else. The necessary laws are in place in many places now and that "change" so many of you voted for, well it is now starting to happen.

San Antonio, TX, passed an animal ordinance requiring a Litter Permit in December of last year (2007). It is now being enforced. Animal control staff scan the Classified Ads and call the phone numbers listed that do not include a Litter Permit Number. Breeders are told that their animals will be confiscated if they don't buy the Litter Permit. To date, we're not aware of any animals actually being seized. Reports are that Louisville, KY, is actually illegally seizing litters under the same situations.

How many who voted for "change" thought to actually ask what that change would be and what it was going to mean?

General Eisenhower Warned Us

The following was sent to me as an email. I actually intended to send it on as an email. Then I thought better of that idea and decided it needed space in my blog. In just a few more days we will be called to the voting polls to vote not just for a new President, but on the very fate of this great country. Like it or not but this election is most likely to go down in history as one of those "turning points".

I think it is fair to say that each of us will carry into the voting booth our own personal beliefs as to just what the word "free" means. Of course that also means that what some will label as free others will label as "unfree", "bound", "restricted" or a host of other labels used to describe a loss of freedom. May all the Joe the Plumbers of this great land get out there and VOTE!

Read and heed... and be forewarned...

General Eisenhower Warned Us

It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

This week, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the,6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests

Who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beat, experimented on and humiliated' while the German people looked the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people! Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center .. 'NEVER HAPPENED' ...because it offends some Muslim in the U.S. ???

Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along.


If you can read this... thank a teacher. If you can read this in English... thank a veteran.

God Bless America !

Please share the above quoted email with everyone you know. It is something to think about as we all prepare to go to the polls on Tuesday and vote as our consciences dictates.
