First it was German Shepherds, then Dobermans and now Pit Bulls - it's not the breed nor the dog it's lack of care and love by owners that create dogs that people fear. That and people are so easy to fear anything they don't understand.

Barbs you are an amazing person. I dont know why I could not uploaded. Wow thank you !!!
Thank you for everyone who listen.
I wanted to make a video showing real animals. But the sad thing is there are no pits in my area anymore. I see none. Is a sad picture people are afraid of getting them here. We donīt have BSL here. People are just sooooo afraid. Here we got to pay for taxes for all dogs. All strong breeds are more expensive, so the other half who would get them, donīt have the money.

I cried for days for Lennox, is already hard to lose an animal to illness and other ways. But to lose like Lennox was lost is painful.

I hope one day BSL will only be a sad part of history. Let us help these families who are being target of BSL. The pain must be so big.

Thank you for spreading, this video survives from it. I wish my video would make people stop and think, hopefully changing their attitude towards these beautiful dogs.

This is an amazing touching video. I am so choked and losted for words but at the same time so proud of my fried Buffy for writing this heartfelt song about LENNOX and the for needless cruel way he died and also for all the other BSLs who have lost their lives because of man's inhumane attitude towards these beautiful creatures - it's insane and needs to stop! I am ashamed of man's ignorance and destruction and the need to kill dogs just because they look different - it's about time they took the time/attitude to get to know the breed and their personality and then maybe families would not be left devastated when their dogs are wrenched away from them. Man has become very cruel - we need to take a grip and realise just what our actions are doing to the balance of nature, breeds are disappearing which is not right - we have no right to do this! Again, thank you Buffy, you are amazing, keep fighting for the BSLs!

I love the video tribute to Lennox. I pray for Lennox & his owners everyday.
Dogs are allowed in the bar we go to. Yesterday a hundred pound boxer was sitting in his owner's lap. He was so funny & happy. We all had a good time petting him & giving him treats.
If the dogs misbehave they can't come there anymore. People who don't like dogs don't come in either. There are other places but we all get along.
RIP Lennox. We tried to save you & we will continue to fight for your friends who remain amongst us.

Noted - I don't even want to watch this. This dog's plight will forever remain in my broken heart and I have nothing but admiration and love for all those who tried in vain to help him and all the other dogs out there. You truly are God's special animal angels. At the same time I have an anger that eats me like cancer towards the despicable barbaric humans that do these things to innocent defenceless animals. And this is so un Christian like, but I pray that in some way these despicable monsters are punished each and every day of their lives.

Tribute to Lennox:
Noted! So AMAZINGLY Beautiful Barb! A job which was extremely well done. And so befitting a tribute. I too made a tribute to this incredible animal that had touched everyone who even heard his name. His plight was so profound that the thoughts and prayers and those fingers that always remained crossed, hidden away from others, as he permeated ALL our minds regardless of our everyday doings...He was always there! He IS alive and with our Heavenly Father and runs through meadows of tall green grass...With Yuko and all the others who preceded him from good or bad situations. He is whole, young, healthy and most of all, more happy than we could even begin to imagine. We don't have to photo shop his face to form a smile as he looks down at all the world that prayed for his life.....You see, in Heaven, dogs really do smile!

Lennox was/is so very special in so many ways. He never should have been put down; I feel certain that Belfast was at first following their own stupid law and then when the backlash from everyone came out and hit them between the eyes they euthanized him out of spite. Whatever their reasons, Lennox is no longer of this earth. I cannot imagine what his family is feeling, as I didn't know them or Lennox personally, but I DO know how this has me feeling! Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and his family, and think how excruciatingly horrendous it was for him not knowing why, what he did to make them treat him so, and to be murdered without ever seeing his family one last time! This is a very heartfelt tribute to a very beautiful life taken too cruelly too soon. Thank you for sharing it with us. And, Lennox, you are not forgotten nor will you ever be.

Beautiful song. I hope it goes viral. The only thing I'd quibble with is that puppies are born aggressive, play fighting is their most favorite thing, but all it takes is a simple teaching, No Bite. They learn fast and want nothing more than to please their human.

I have to tell a little story here. When my youngest son got his puppy, Cisco, at 7 weeks, he who became mine in another year, his favorite thing was pretending we were chew toys. It didn't take long to teach him that was not true. :^). But, as with my older son's dog, our next door neighbor had a 14 year old pit bull rescue named Lady, who taught both Misty and Cisco how to be dogs, socialized them, and tolerated their puppy antics, until they crossed a line, at which point she taught them proper etiquette, lovingly but firmly. She was an amazing animal, who'd been severely abused and could easily have become mean, but chose not to. She was loving, kind, patient and beautiful. I'd have her with me when my neighbor was out of town for the weekend. She had the neatest way of letting me know when she needed to go outside. She'd walk to the door and stare at it, then look over her shoulder at me if I didn't notice right away. People who hate animals because of their own prejudices, or how that animal looks, are missing out on a lot. Don't judge a book by its cover is so appropriate. And, remember, given a 10% chance, puppies grow into dogs who are better people than most people are.

something I want to share with you all. Bcc said that they wanted to protect the public from Lennox. I feel the pain for Lennox and I hear you all saying the same. And we are representing many countries around the world. Was this protecting, we are all hurting. What kind of protection is that??? Emotional pain is worse than physical. At least for me. The damage that they did, is so big, they got no clue. If for us is this difficult, imagine for family. Is a difficult thing for me at least to get over. The cruelty not only for Lennox and his family but for all of us. Is real grief going on here. In silence. Nobody out there is realizing how this is affecting people all around the world. And it does not stop there. I hope for all the animals and us that this BSL is erased from this entire planet. Sorry but I had to share.

Awesome tribute to all the lennox's out there who have sencelessly lost their lives merely because of how they look. When will the ignorance stop? When will people wake up and realize that there are NO bad breeds and no bad dogs. They are created that way by ignoring their needs emotionally, mentally and physically by lack of compassion, spending time with them, your behavior towards them, not playing with them, leaving them tied out on a chain with little to no contact which deminishes social skills and the owners not utilizing discipline and corrective behavior. Animals are just like people in that they are not born bad but are rather created and turned into bad dogs or ruthless humans due to their upbringing or lack thereof. Good work Buffy and hopefully one day people will wake up and realizing that they are destroying the greatest gift of love and loyality and commitment due to false judgemental attitudes.

My thanks to Curzio for forwarding, Barb for uploading, and Buffy -- your last spoken words finally brought forth the tears. Buffy uses the term 'Dog racism'. It is well to recall that the concept of 'speciesism' has been around for many years now. That there has come about a sudden turning of people upon dogs, of all creatures surely has sinister implications. There is an epidemic of this from Belfast to Montreal. It parallels a development in language less noticed -- it is now general that instead of using the pronouns 'who' and 'whom' in relating to people, 'that' and 'which' are used. We are turning upon one another also, linguistically depersonalizing others. But this turning upon dogs is so epidemic in extent that I think it is no longer sufficient to deal with each case individually, though obviously that is necessary. It must also be publicized, dealt with and countered as a common phenomenon,

What befell Lennox is very unfair and heart-breaking, as it always is whoever may be concerned. But unlike numberless other innocent animals who have met with the same tragical fate, he now has a face, a name, an identity. This, say, familiarity, speaks to people and many will no longer be able to look away, which, in a broader sense, is likely to attract more attention to the cause. Here lies some hope, at least. Thanks to the wonderful people who are fighting for it, as they are the ones who can change things for the better in the future - keep it up. R.I.P., Lennox. May the future be brighter.
