N&S. TY Cal and many thanks to Senator Bucco. I have always been concerned about guide dogs and other service dogs. They are at the peril of the individuals and families with whom they live. Most people are decent to them but I have seen some instances where I do not think they live a good life.

I signed. I've always supported Guiding Eyes for the Blind. They're a responsible organization and care deeply for the dogs in training. On that note, I agree that all dogs should be protected. All animals should have that right.

It takes many months to raise, more to train and $$$ to raise a guide dog. It is far beyond, "give me your paw" "sit" "roll over" "speak" and "potty?" which MOST of us train or try to train our dogs. An out of service dog is the equilalent of training a high tech employee and losing them.
Aside from humane treatment for ALL pets, these are very important dogs. A person has to go on a waiting list for a dog. Not some "object" that can be easily replaced.
Also, we must as caring humans, if we see an person abuse their dog....it must be reported..Not sure to whom...but just as there are good people, not all people with service dogs are good. An abused dog needs to be taken out of the situation and given to a good owner. If the person has to do without the dog, so be it. An abused and fearful dog would take alot of retraining, but we need to look after these wonderful dogs.

And still they are beaten, trapped and slaughtered.

Working animals help people in so many ways. They are extensions of people and deserve the same protections that people enjoy.

For that matter, all animals are creatures of the Creator and deserve respect and protection.
