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.
