Stop the madness

Monday, August 10, 2009

My friend Nancy at f8hasit posted on her blog about a really unfortunate incident that happened in her city regarding the police and an innocent dog.

I, too, used to live in Lakewood, OH where this occured and I loved it. It's a very family friendly city and sits right on the shores of Lake Erie. Unfortunately, you can't enjoy that beautiful lakefront with your dog because the city doesn't allow it.

I knew they had this crazy ordinance about "no dogs in any city parks" and that they recently banned pit bulls but what happened last week was so over the top and inexcusable, that I had to share it with you here.

Please read Nancy's post here and take action if you can.

Dogs everywhere thank you!


  1. I read Nancy's post, but I could not convince myself to watch the video. I still haven't. I hate seeing dogs being mistreated. It was hard enough reading about it. It's all so sad.

  2. I will go over and check out your friend's post. Thanks so much for stopping by my site. Working on a new post for today. We'll see if I get it up.

  3. Hey, Thanks Chrissy for bringing even more attention to this. I saw on the Lakewood Observer website that the city has gotten tons of e-mails and letters about this...hopefully with the continuation of these letters they might reverse some of the ordinances that have been snuck into place.
    Stuey and Sienna (my dogs) thank you. They want to know when you are coming back over...Stuey's saving a big wet kiss for you!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my site. Please feel free to visit anytime, I'll leave the light on for you!

  5. Wow, that was just amazing. I cant believe there is such a crappy place in Ohio... And the way that dog was treated is just awful. I also could not bring myself to watch the video.

  6. I will be sure to go over and check out Nancy's post as soon as I finish catching up on your posts.

    Please give Bern a hug for me.


  7. @Theresa, I couldn't bring myself to watch it either, it was bad enough they did a blow by blow on the news.

    @when pigs fly, Yes, please do. I'll stop by again!

    @Nancy, you're welcome. Bastard 5-0. Tell them to save their kisses for me!

  8. @JW.BW, It's sad, isn't it? Makes us all embarassed. It's not like we live in the inner city and train our dogs to kill. I couldn't watch it, either.

    @Ron, Thanks for checking her post out. I'll give Bern a hug for you! It's storming here now so she's hiding somewhere.

  9. Oh my God! People are so stupid. x

  10. Yowsa! I couldn't read the whole thing because it was too sad. Horrible.

  11. @Anna, It never ceases to amaze me.

    @Jeve, I know. I started to watch it and saw happy tail wagging and I had to stop.

    @Grumpy, M.D., Sickening. Hey, love your blog!


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
