I HAVE BEEN AWAY FOR AWHILE. I HOPE ALL IS GOING WELL WITH YOU AND YOURS.
I AM CALLING ON MY FRIENDS FOR A LITTLE HELP, MOST OF MY FRIENDS ARE TRUCK DRIVER'S, AND SOME OF THEM ARE HAVING TO LEAVE THEIR PITBULLS, STAFFIES, AND LOOK ALIKE'S AT HOME ARE HAVE BEEN NEEDING TO FIND THEM A NEW HOME. I THOUGHT THE TOWNS AND STATES THAT HAVE A BAN, WAS FOR PEOPLE THAT LIVED THERE. NOT PEOPLE THAT ARE PASSING THROUGH. CAN ANYBODY SEND SOME FEED BACK TO ME, I WANT TO HELP THE DRIVERS OUT. TRUCK DRIVER'S ARE UNDER FEDERAL LAWS. ONE DRIVER HAD HIS PIT "PUT DOWN" JUST BECAUSE AN EMPLOYEE AT A TRUCK STOP SAID TO THE POLICE THAT THE DOG "TRIED TO ATTACK HIM THROUGH THE WINDOW" SOO BEFOR THE DRIVER WAS TAKEN TO THE POLICE STATION THE COP SAID " YOU MAY PICK UP THE REMAINS AT SUCH AN SUCH ADDRESS TODAY...." ANOTHER DRIVER GOT OFF EASY, HE CROSSED THE SCALE IN ARKANSAS GOING TOWARDS TENNESSEE, AND THE SCALE MASTER GAVE HIM A 2500 FINE AND WAS TOLD. "DON'T BRING THAT DOG ACROSS MY SCALE AGAIN, WE WILL TAKE IT AND PUT IT DOWN.
TRUCK DRIVING IS A LONELY JOB, AND WE ALL KNOW THAT PETS ARE HEALTHY TO HAVE, THEY MAKE THE DRIVER GET OUT OF THE TRUCKS AND GO FOR WALKS, THEY KEEP THEM COMPANY AND PROVID HOURS OF RELAED FUN.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLIES.
IF YOU HAVE FUTHER QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK.
****WE HAVE GOT TO START WRITING, FAXING, EMAILING LETTERS NOW!!!***

I see the children in the lane They look like friends, we'll have a game They've got a stick, oh boy, what fun They'll throw it for me and I'll run But someone stops me, I wonder why their mother screams "Don't go near those" Horrid Dogs, come here, come close They're dangerous-I'll tell you why They bite little children and they die All I can do is watch and sigh Cause now I know that Pit Bull's don't cry
Mum cuddles me up and says "My pet We love you dearly so don't you fret" But I love everyone out there Why can't they love me, I do care I wish they weren't made to pass me by I'm a Pit Bull, I don't cry
I sit behind my padlocked gate From early morn til quite late When I go out it's on a lead Is mine the only heart to bleed I'm held in check as the world goes by I wish the Pit Bull heart could cry
There are some dogs, and also men Who cannot tell a foe from a friend So all of us must bear the blame Expected to live a life of shame Condemned, alas and we know not why All we know is we will not cry!
What Animal Do I Speak Of? By Patty Letawsky Their love is like no other,their heart as pure as gold. Yet while going on a friendly walk,they're faced with stares of cold. They're so very close to human,in how they act and what they do,Unless you've known their devoted love,it's impossible to explain to you. They are greatly more misunderstood,than any other breed.We tend to punish this loyal dog, Instead of mankind's deeds.They are always and forever clowns, with a wish for center stage.Yet while displaying this sense of humor,most people disengage.They, oh, so want to make new friends,and run and jump and play.Yet when they happily approach,most people shy away. Often I've seen children poke,or hop on for a ride.And when I felt thay might get mad,they've only beamed with pride.I've seen there children yank and pull,with nary a reaction.Yet media's not interested,unless they've put someone in traction.When other dog's have made the news,this breed's name they affix.But when this brave dog saves the day, they call him "boxer mix".They love to snuggle up real close,to give lots of loves and kisses,Yet they suffer more than any,from unfair prejudices.Their tails wag hard and hips twist, too,more so than other mutts.So those of us who know the breed,we call them "wiggle butts".What animal do I speak of,Whose love is so unique? If you've truly known one,you know of whom I speak.There is no creature on this Earth who will ever make you merrier.The animal I do speak of,it's the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Police in Fort Worth are searching for the person who abandoned a toddler at a pizza restaurant over the weekend.
Authorities were called to the Chuck E. Cheese Restaurant in the 4800 block of Southwest Loop 820 just before 8 p.m. Saturday night.
When officers arrived they found that a little girl had been abandoned. As of Monday morning no one had reported the child missing and police say the girl is unable to give any information as to her identity.
The child, whose name or nickname is believed to be "Mimi", is an African-American female. She is believed to be between three and four-years-old, stands 2'4" tall and weighs about 35 pounds.
When the little girl was found, she was wearing a white shirt, blue jeans, one white and one pink sock, and no shoes.
The girl is in the custody of Child Protective Services.
Anyone with information as to the girl's identity is asked to contact the Fort Worth Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit at 817-332-5036 or call 911.
I cannot imagine what this little child was feeling being left alone.

These animals have only a short period of time before they can AND WILL BE euthanized. Check often....some animals aren't posted, so a trip out there may be needed to check for your lost family member and pal. The pictures list where and when the dog was picked up and when their "expiration" date is. Don't let an animal die because you're unaware of this facility.

Grins lost his life to BSL, a discriminatory, shameful law which killed a healthy, friendly dog because of his breed. Rescuers must fight BSL, and protect these sweet, loving souls. There has to be a way to turn the present mindset around and fight this injustice. Please rescue a bully in Grins' memory. Grins was a happy, friendly boy. In imminent danger of being euthanized because of BSL enacted as prejudice against his breed, we tried to save him. It made little difference that he had a great attitude and friendly demeanor. It didn't matter that he paid little attention to the dogs in the wire pens next to him. Labeled a vicious dog no matter how sweet and loving he was, he was euthanized, never to give joy to an adopter or to live out his life in the loving forever home he deserved. . God rest your soul, friend. Your grin lives on in our memory.
It is the time of year when people find themselves wanting to get a pet. not sure what kind they want. well i have started telling peple about fostering a pet and how easy it could be.
1) most of the time the food is provided 2) vet bills are taken care of in most cases 3) You can go through a varity of breeds and sizes 4) if you happen to attatch your self to one of the pets you could adopt it
it is a win win situation an animal does not get put to sleep and finds a wonderful forever home. all it takes is some of your time, maybe a carpet cleaning, ( you know you might need one anyway.....lol)
please take the time to consider fostering an animal. and don't buy a pet because you have the cash on you when a deal is thrown at you.
if you live in the springfield, missouri area and have room to foster a dog or a puppy please contact,
