I understand how you feel. Unlike most of you my kids are pretty much grown so my bully is my baby. He is at my side 24/7. I have become involved in fighting BSL. What you need to do is send your senator, mayor, everyone who represents your state a letter against BSL. There are some great websites with formats for you to use. Google Breed Specific Legislation and follow through with it. I have even started posting on my space and getting people involved. There is always active legislation to muder our dogs and many other large breeds. My comment to people who ask why I have gotten so anal about it is simple, once they kill our dogs your dog will be the next on the list. Send me your email address and I will send you the information that I have. I will include a list of breeds that BSL has already effected or will effect if this legislation passes. I will move before I get rid of my dogs. here is a sample letter.

Dear Sirs:

This is in response to the pending legislation in your jurisdiction as to regulating vicious/potentially dangerous dogs via breed specific legislation.

All dogs are dangerous under certain circumstances. Only when the owner or custodian of the animal does not properly train and confine his/her animal, does that animal pose a potential risk to human safety. A common ingredient to the dog personality is to guard and protect it's owner and property. ANY dog with that personality can become a problem for the public, if that dog is allowed to run loose and is not responsibly supervised. The key word here is responsibility (per Websters, definition of responsibility: Being legally or ethically accountable for the welfare or care of another.) To say certain breeds of dogs are dangerous is not a complete statement. All dogs can be dangerous if in the hands of an irresponsible owner.

Please retract your breed specific bill/ordinance. Don't punish all of us responsible owners that maintain our dogs as companions and members of our families. We can and do maintain our dogs so they do not pose a threat to anyone, why should we be denied our companions simply because irresponsible owners of the same breed of dog have not "ethically and legally" protected others from injury?

There are several samples of existing non-breed specific legislation (ie., the State of California) that is competent to regulate the irresponsible owners and not punish those that maintain their dogs safely and humanely. I, as a responsible dog owner, ask that you seriously consider the impact of breed specific legislation. The irresponsible owners don't care what breed of dog they lose the right to own....they'll find another dog breed to fit their needs. I deeply care, because it threatens me with the loss of a family member.

lol yes! since jordis is a mix, she's going to be written up as 'german shepherd' mix on EVERYTHING as far as the vets are concerned. just in case. they've been discussing it here too and when/if they do - they'll want the mix's out too. no way in hell. my dog is going to live right here!
