Lennox's Last Day.

Depending on how the hearing with the Northern Ireland dog warden, this could mean one of two things. Either Lennox's last day away from his family, or his last day on earth. So many are praying for this sweet boy's release.

The campaign has been going on for the past few years now, and is a classic example of how wrong Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is. Lennox was forcibly taken from his home when such laws were enacted. He had done nothing to provoke this. There were no signs of aggression, there had been no bite incidents, there was nothing to warrant being ripped from the only people he's ever known, and placed in solitary confinement in a cold kennel for months (now years.)
It was determined through the way he looks, nothing other than the shape of his head, and the length of his body, as taken with a tape measure.
If Lennox were human, this would be against the law - considered racial profiling.

Now as a last ditch effort to ensure the right people hear our concerns for Lennox and to let common sense win out over irrational outcomes, many of us are posting his story anywhere we can.

Remembering Chico

This beloved family pet was killed in Northeast Philadelphia back in October of 2010. The outcry was so great at the time there were even public donations to the reward fund set up to catch whoever did this. Since then, there have been no further developments... Somebody out there knows something.

After a million false starts about officially becoming a groomer... hopefully tomorrow when I go back in to work I'll find out that my status change has finally been approved and I can start earning commission.

Is everyone in Philly ready for this new snow? Some people are saying its not gonna snow at all - but brrrr! It's damn cold out there. If it does snow, I'll post pics.
