Please, friends, help this poor dog. This is so unfair!

Petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/234/183/724/blind-deaf-dog-kicked-out-of-dog-park/

Here is a second link that a friend sent me:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/594/116/952/deaf-blind-13-year-old-dog-kicked-out-of-his-favorite-park-of-one-year-small-dogs-only/

Thank you.

"Billy the dog doesn't play rough. He's older, blind, and deaf, which means that dogs his size tend to bully and scare him. So for several years, his owner has been taking him to the "small or timid dog" section of the local dog park.

Last week, though, a park ranger told Billy's owner that Billy had to play with the big dogs or get out. He said that Billy's section of the park was for small dogs only, and that it didn't matter that Billy's disability meant that he couldn't protect himself if any dogs his own size decided to get rowdy.

Billy was never any trouble to the dogs in the park. To a dog that is deaf or blind, changing things to them is like changing their entire world.

Ask the Santa Barbara County Parks Office to let Billy and his owner back into the part of the park where he felt and was safe"

Is there a petition? I've shared the link on twitter.
It is so sad and so pointless. Thanks for sharing.

Why are people discriminating against a defenseless animal? Terrible. Remember to try and adopt an older animal that has been turned out by its "family."

I have returned to Kamloops, BC.  I have been back since mid-July.  I have been looking for work and have yet to find a job.  I'm very frustrated, and wonder if I will ever find work in this city.
