I just had to let all my network friends know that on 1/7/2008 my 1st grandson was born. His name is Jacob Dillan McLehaney and he was born in Chesterfield, VA. I just wish I had the money to get out there to see him!

He is the 1st grandson of the 1st grandson in my little family and since my son is now 35, I thought I'd never have one!

I am just so proud and this brings back lots of memories from when my boys were babies!

Husky Justice:HELP TO GET HIM IN JAIL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:



Jono Judelman is collecting signatures to petition our legal system to prosecute Phillip Matthysen under the full penalty of the law. He has the following to say about this petition:

"Cutting off a husky puppy's head with a chainsaw...sounds like a horror flick, right? Not this time...someone in South Africa did it yesterday to his own dog. Help me get this lunatic punished and add your signature to this petition!

THE WHAT...
On 22 February 2007, Phillip Matthysen, a South African 'man' murdered his Husky puppy after it instinctively bit out at his parrot and killed it. This sicko proceeded to hold the dog down and cut its' head off with a chainsaw. Due to a lack of animal rights and protection in SA's legal system, this lunatic now stands to walk free after committing this crime - this cause exists to make sure that does NOT happen!
On July 24th 2007, this man will appear in court to answer for what he has done. With your help, I want to ensure he receives maximum punishment - R20 000 fine and 3 years jail time.

THE HOW...
I have spoken to Mr. G Schultz, the prosecutor on this case, and arranged to meet him on July 23rd. I plan to give him a minimum of 2500 of our signatures, which he will present to the judge on the case to show him we are ALL watching and that an example must be made.
PLEASE sign your name below and ask all your friends to do the same. If we sign this cause, we've all done a great thing and that poor husky did not die in vain!
So please, sign on and encourage all your friends to get involved! I will keep everyone posted as to how many signatures we get...

Dog-Gone Prairie?
Prairie Dog, (c) Dave Showalter

Black-footed ferret, FWS/NCTCPrairie dogs play an important role in the American plains. Several creatures depend on these burrowing animals for their livelihood -- including the endangered black-footed ferret.

Tell the Forest Service to stop the prairie dog massacre -- before it starts.

Take Action red

Please forward this message on to friends and family who care about wildlife.

Dear Jennieb,

Prairie dogs are an important part of ecosystems on the American Plains. So why is the U.S. government trying to use your tax dollars to kill them?

Tell the Forest Service to stop the prairie dog massacre, before it starts.

Last fall, more than 35,000 activists like you sent comments asking the Forest Service to stop the massacre of tens of thousands of prairie dogs on our National Grasslands.

Prairie dogs provide food for eagles, hawks, badgers, swift fox, endangered black-footed ferrets and other Great Plains predators. Prairie dog burrows provide shelter for burrowing owls, salamanders, black-footed ferrets and many other creatures.

But the Forest Service wants to use your tax dollars to poison and kill tens of thousands of these furry critters and destroy the vital habitat prairie dogs create in our National Grasslands.

Take action now -- write the Forest Service and urge them to stop the prairie dog massacre.

Tens of thousands of prairie dogs could be poisoned and killed -- but it’s not only these tunneling critters that stand to suffer. Because so many other creatures depend on prairie dogs for survival -- from burrowing owls to badgers, swift foxes to snakes -- the entire grassland ecosystem is at risk.

Help stop the Forest Service plan to poison and kill tens of thousands of prairie dogs. Help protect the balance of life on the American Plains.

After a similar rule change in 2005 allowed poisoning in National Grassland areas bordering private land, more than 70,000 prairie dogs were killed. Poisoning now occurs each year in these areas near private land, killing thousands of prairie dogs annually.

Now, the Forest Service is proposing to make it easier to poison and kill prairie dogs anywhere on three public grasslands. They’re even targeting an area in South Dakota’s Buffalo Gap National Grassland called Conata Basin -- key habitat for the recently reintroduced swift fox and our nation’s most important recovery area for the endangered black-footed ferret.

Don’t let this dangerous proposal see the light of day -- write the Forest Service now!

Thank you for all you do to protect our wildlife and wild places.

Thought I would pass this along in case anyone was interested.  I thought it a good cause....
HATS OFF TO TJ

We are wanting donations for all unwanted hats. Any kind new or used.
They are for a 14 year old boy that has cancer. He is trying to beat the world record of 82,000 hats!!! Right now he only has 80. So he has a long way to go. He says that when he gets better, he
is going to give all the hats to other children with the same problem.
TJ is an inspiration to us and we will not quit until he reaches his goal!! So any help for him will be wonderful!!

Bryan and Rhonda Acton live in Moberly, Mo. They are very avid race fans. They travel all over going to races. It has been their dream to start a local foundation called "Take A Kid Racing". This would be for kids that are sick or need help.
While researching on how to set the foundation up, they found a group called "Circle of Hope". There they met a young 14 yo boy named TJ (he will be 15 next month). He won their hearts. TJ lives in Grand Rapids, MI. They have assured him that they will help him obtain this goal.
The drs have said that it will take over 3 yrs for TJ to beat this cancer. So, if you would like to help TJ, just send a hat and include a little note w/ your name and city, state. I am going to include TJ's website.

Please forward this to those on your email lists.
Let's help TJ obtain his goal.

Local lab finds pet food contaminated with painkiller

Scientist, vet warn food could kill some pets

KTRK By Laura Whitley

- You just thought your pet food was safe. Poison has been found in pet food just months after another scare. A Houston doctor says he's uncovered pet food contaminated with pain medication.


Also on ABC13.com:
Send news tips | RSS | ABC13 E-lert | Info mentioned on air | Search abc13.com
The pet food you are feeding your dog and cat could kill them. Experts are now warning that the contaminated pet food scare could be far worse than first thought. We've just learned a local lab has found food contaminated with a common pain medication -- acetaminophen. That's a deadly combination for pets.

The doctor who runs the lab believes the problems with pet food are far from over. His finding has sparked a new federal investigation.

Just one little acetaminophen pill is enough to kill a cat. But according to the lab, this drug was found in at least a half dozen pet food samples.

Technicians at EperTox in Deer Park test all kinds of samples. For the past few months more than a thousand of those samples have been different types of pet food. The results are troubling.

"We don't really how big and how involved this problem is right now. We are only uncovering the beginning of it," said Dr. Ernest Lykissa.

What Dr. Lykissa says he uncovered in his lab is more contaminated pet food. In more than two dozen samples Dr. Lykissa says either cyanuric acid or acetaminophen were found.

"Poisonous yes, if we're testing for it here, it's potentially poisonous to you," he said.

The highest level of acetaminophen contamination came from a sample sent in by a manufacturer. It tested at 2 milligrams of the painkiller per gram of dog food.

"So if you put two milligrams of Tylenol in little bit of food, that's an extremely high concentration," explained Dr. Michael Huddleston with the Bellaire Animal Clinic.

That's a concentration that could make a dog sick and could even kill a cat.

Dr. Huddleston warned, "Cats are extremely sensitive to this drug."

ExperTox lab manager Donna Coneley was so troubled by the results that she verified the tests.

"We were questioning that," she admitted. "We took that same sample and did an extraction."

Due to a confidentiality agreement, the lab can not reveal which pet food samples tested positive for the drugs. At least one sample was Pet Pride cat food. All test results were reported to the pet food makers, which should have been reported to the FDA.

It may be up to owners to police pet food because, according to the lab manager, no one from the FDA has investigated their positive findings. In fact, to date not a single government inspector has asked to look at one of the tainted pet food samples tested in this laboratory.

Late this afternoon, an FDA spokesperson says the agency is trying to get those samples. For now Dr. Lykissa considers the quality of pet food questionable.

He said, "The FDA has to become a lot more vigilant, because if we're finding those things who knows what we're not finding."

The tests were conducted over the past month. An FDA spokesperson says the agency wants to test the samples independently to determine the levels of contaminants.

The makers of Pet Pride food said court order prevents them from commenting on our story.


Back in March, the FDA learned that certain pet foods were making cats and dogs sick. The FDA later found contaminants in vegetable proteins imported from China and used as ingredients in pet food. At least 16 pet deaths have been linked to the contamination, but the FDA is still sifting through thousands of reports of dead pets to determine if any of those cases are related.

The products were sold by many different distributors under a number of different brand names. For the most up-to-date list of product names, check the Menu Foods website or call 1-866-895-2708.

As some of you know, my husband took his life on 3/14/2006. It is a horrible experience for the survivors to go through. If you know someone who is in need of help please don't ignore them. If you know someone who has recently survived the loss of a loved one by suicide, they can get a lot of support from the Friends and Family of Suicide yahoo group (FFOS). This group is also looking for people who may have accidently caused the death of a loved one and are in need of support. They are willing to start a new group for those in need. For example, the father that accidently backed over & caused the death of his toddler. For more information or if you need support yourself, don't hesitate to email me!  It is a difficult path to walk alone and it does get better with time and support.
Thanks,
Leandra
