It is this kind of stupidity that makes people hate government. They killed the dog not because it was a danger, but to show the size of there genitals. Lennox could have been given over to professional dog handlers in the US who wanted him and had a place where no one, including Lennox himself would be in no danger.

We should have known. Like we should have known when we marched to ask George W. Bush to stop his plans for a war.
But I don't think we should give up hope now, either.
Because it would mean that Lennox died in vain.

I have to think of the right words to write. Right now, only insults come to my mind, but I will send a formal complaint on their site.
Thank you, Borg.

I will be sharing this for sure. Brilliant post. I hope they get sent so many bloody emails their computer terminals explode.

Cretin bastards. Agreed, Patrizia. It was all about balls and who owned them. Nothing more, nothing less.

Excuse my candid language....I'm usually more circumspect, but I just can't help myself tonight.

Complaint sent. I've been tearing up all day thinking about what this innocent soul had to endure and what a cowardly act the Belfast City Council did. Just yesterday I discouraged a coworker from going to Ireland in Sept. when she heard this story, She and her Doctor daughter have not hear the cowardly act the Belfast City council pulled off today and euthanized poor Lennox.

How dare they and they probably call themselves Christians

Noted, and will write soon, have got to arrange an appropriate selection of words, which will make clear the level of hatred and vilification they have made themselves recipients of.

No Lennox, you are not to be forgotten, vengeance will be yours, against all those responsible

Thank you to EVERYONE who has sent an Email to the murderers of Belfast City Council. Thanks also to everyone who has Noted/FWD and Flagged the Spammers.

For those of you who are still calming down, you are doing the right thing. I wrote to them with a hostile letter and needed to re-evaluate my words (Several Times). not that i think they will pay much attention to our mail, however they are more likely to read it if it's not hostile (which is hard in these cases).

for this I thank you all once again and have hopefully got everyone with a green star.
Keep FWD-ing, and lets be sure that BCC will never have the opportunity to make the same mistake again..

Done and share!
In the meantime, would you mind flagging the spam? Iīve seen an increasing number of spam comments in almost every news I note, this is kind of annoying. Maybe if we all flag those comments the idiots who create fakes profiles to do so would be discouraged. Thanks!

This picture of Lennox in that little concrete cell is so heartbreaking. This poor pup had only known love since he was a little puppy in the company of his loving family, in his home, being properly cared for. What did he feel when suddenly he was taken away from all he knew and placed in this dungeon to suffer alone? What kind of sadistic psychopath can do this to an innocent dog? This is so very sad. Poor Lennox. Karma will get all who caused Lennox suffering. They will get their punishment tenfold.

I had to cool off before I lodged my complaint, and here is what I wrote:

Complaint to the Belfast City Council
I think it was very wrong when you killed Lennox!!
He was an American Bulldog X Labrador. He was NOT a Pitt Bull.
He was microchipped, neutered, DNA registered, insured, and even had a valid city issued dog license that you had issued for 5, yes, 5 years!!
I refuse to accept the fact that legislators would put a family and an innocent animal through that pain unnecessarily for the sake of an ill-conceived and ignorant law.
These animals canít speak, so I am doing it for them.
I am not even a 'dog' person, but I cried for over a week because of this senselss killing of an sweet, loving, innocent dog!!
Please end this stupid BSL. Every dog is innocent. It is PEOPLE who hurt them and make them mean!!
Rest in Peace little sweet Lennox!! You did NOTHING wrong and you have thousands of people who still love you!!
The Belfast City Council is wrong in their ignorant BSL, and they have thousands of people who HATE them!!!
Thank you for telling us about your complaint. Your reference number is
