Awesome News!!! Yay!!!! I hate when people, especially elected officials, are allowed to make broad sweeping statements with absolutely no fact to back them up: Driscoll said, "Are some pit bulls loving companions? Absolutely. But it's important to bear in mind that families that come to a she...

Have you tried switching directions (180 degrees) when Sonny gets too far in front of you...like, "hey dude - I'M leading...not you" And you can turn either way (left or right). I walk Rugie on the left so if he's really annoying me, I'll turn left, right into him, and keep walking the opp...

Just started surfing for more information on Merritt Clifton and found some interesting analysis of his report has already been done: http://lassiegethelp.blogspot.com/2007/08/pit-bulls-dog-bite-statistics-and.html http://www.nationalcanineresearchcouncil.com/dogbites1.asp Scroll down a ways on this...

I just read the Merritt Clifton report that they seem to be basing all of their logic on. Have you guys read this thing?!? It is absolutely illogical. His "study" likens owning a pit bull terrier to owning a puma (a wild animal). He never once compares his attack/fatality counts against ac...

Wow Kirstan - I had no idea. It was such a moving experience to hear him speak and tell the Council that despite the attack, he did not support the breed-specific language in the ordinance.

Wonder if seeing you with Coal had an impact on them?

I agree Stormi. Last night was kind of magical for me. I was worried that the open-door policy of a public forum would bring out personal anecdote after personal anecdote from mic-hogs.....but it was quite the opposite. When I pulled into the parking lot and was met by a throng of peaceful demonstra...

That intersections is perfect! I think I sat through 2 lights going in both directions - so you'll have a captive audience!!! And I wanted to say to the forum at large - yesterday was my first ever protest/rally and I was a bit nervous - like are people going to be annoyed with us? would there be an...

I was at the rally today and the turnout was disappointing, however I think there were a number of factors contributing: -short notice -change in location So if the rally is still on for next Saturday, let's do it up right! Location?? Time?? If the word to goes out now - people can plan ahead and ho...

It's raining cats & dogs!! :crybaby: I'm worried that all of our signs are going to get ruined.....

I'll see you all at noon - but if it's still like this, may I suggest we move inside the Starbucks to work on drafting a DDLaw that works and is non-discriminatory?

I have 8 million things to do this weekend before we go out of town on Monday, but I am rescheduling all of those appts to make it there at noon. Is there any interest in starting the protest sooner?? 10am? 11am? I'm not going to be able to stay much past 2pm. But I definitely want to be there! I am...

Clearly anything breed specific is a segue to more restrictive language. You can't get out of the PDD category with a therapy titled PIT BULL but you just have to get a CGC on a dangerous dog of some other breed. Yes, I agree - this is one of the many changes they are proposing that will actually w...

Now that I see the actual proposed language....

Someone double-check me, but now that I see the ACTUAL language as posted by r6nikki, reposted here: http://www.ci.monroe.wa.us/citygov/council/packets/2008/102808.pdf?RecID=195 ....is this as bad as we first thought? Hear me out... The ordinance as it stands now has 2 classifications : Potentially ...
