Everybody should be calling their local representatives for updates and to get them on the right side as well. Don Walko's office (my rep) was really receptive to me!

Let's see, the only dog(s) he's ever 'rolled' on the show are the ones multiple trainers have recommended for euthanasia, AND he's done more than any other individual or organization in the country to rehabilitate the image of the pitbull in America, so, why NOT hate him?

You owe it to the dog to work this out. You signed on. I think that's a sacred pact, carpet or no. A living being is more important than square yardage of artificial fibers. You need to stop projecting emotions onto the puppy. You have no idea what it "feels" when its bladder is full, othe...

The idea of 'desserts' is just plain anthropomorphism, and people who like to judge who deserves what are usually shortsighted anyway. But the cat got what it was giving. That's for sure. It was a full-on attack, and a bigger, stronger animal responded in kind. I would have probably reprimanded the ...

I use benadryl if there's been serious exposure, I also hose Horace off after grass contact, and if he has lesions I use neosporin first and then "Buddy Boo Boo" on him, which is tea tree and other soothing stuff. He seems to like it.

Yikes! Any word on why they did this and if other formulas are also affected? I feed the all life stages... They added more fresh lamb, I think, and diversified the carbohydrate, adding brown rice and pearl barley. The lady on the phone was talking about rice crops in China and Myanmar; I don't kno...

Heads Up Canidae lamb/rice formulation change

They changed the formulation slightly, it looks different, and will cause loosies if you have a sensitive pitbull like Horace, so start mixing now, if you still have some old stuff!

I spoke with an admin assistant to Haluska, who's majority vice-chair of the ag and rural affairs committee. She said 2553 is on the committee's docket, but 2525 -- puppy mill bill -- is up first and it's turning out so controversial that she thinks it's going to be awhile before the A and R committ...

Re: From [PennDogLeg] on HB 2553**PA**

I have it on excellent authority that the sponsor of H 2553, Rep. Galloway, will remove from his bill that authorizes local dangerous dog ordinances the portion that permitted local breed specific laws. It was not his intention to permit local breed specific legislation - in fact his family has res...

Hi! I'm collecting signatures in Pittsburgh and in Beaver County, way across the state! Welcome, and keep up the fight! One of my neighbors who signed my petition last night while walking her dog was attacked by a loose pitbull 10 minutes later, so I was feeling very discouraged this morning. But so...

I'm having a great time getting signatures!

Yeah, House Bill 2553 would REMOVE the language from the current law which states that "A local ordinance otherwise dealing with dogs MAY NOT prohibit or otherwise limit a specific breed of dog." Galloway wants that to go away. That means that BSL would become possible in PA, which it is ...
