Happy National Love Your Pet Day? WTF?

February 20th is Love Your Pet Day! I know, right? Like we need a day to remind us to love our companion animals? Well apparently SOMEONE thought you weren’t showing enough love to your pets, because Love Your Pet Day was set aside to, “remind pet owners to set aside time each day to appreciate and celebrate … Continue reading

So, Did They Listen?

I guess you’re wondering if I’ve heard anything from any of the players involved in the “meeting” I attended Wednesday night. I have. Grey2K is sorry, but had no control over the fundraiser that was held by the sanctuary. But they did send out an email yesterday letting folks know about other fundraisers and such being … Continue reading

Do You Hafta Have Money to be an Animal Welfare Advocate?

Last night I attended a grassroots meeting held about an hour from here; the meeting was sponsored by Grey2K and the Humane Society of the US. Both groups sent me an email about the meeting, and both emails mentioned start time was 6 PM. At 6 PM I rolled up, only to learn the meeting actually started … Continue reading

I’ve Partnered with Best Friends Animal Society!

I need your help. OK, so really, you’d be helping Best Friends Animal Society, but you’d also be helping me. What? Huh? Let me back up. Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with influential bloggers (They think I’m influential? How cool is that!) to get new members. What’s in it for me? If I recruit 100 … Continue reading

Exotic Animals in Ohio are Again in the News

Ohio has an exotic animal problem.  Yep, they still have problems, even after Zanesville and the so-called revamping of laws addressing exotic animal ownership. So what happened this time? Tiger Ridge Exotics owner Kenny Hetrick failed to file for a permit in a timely manner. State agriculture department inspectors also found safety problems, including inadequate fencing … Continue reading

Aggressive Dog? Depends on Who’s Making the Call

When Rumpy and I are out and about, we see all sorts of reactions in people. Some people get a look of surprise on their face, as though they’re not quite sure what to make of him. Others turn in fear of Rumpy. If walking, they head away from us, but often look to make … Continue reading

If Dogs and Cats Had Legal Rights…

Animals are not human.  That means, at least in the US, they are treated as property in the courts. But that is slowly changing, thanks to dogs and cats. Why? People are duking it out over custody of the family companion animal in divorce proceedings. People are suing for damages when a companion animal is … Continue reading

Should a Dog Die Because the Owner Does?

What happens to your companion animals when you die? Some of us have no plans. Others of us have family members or friends who will take in our beloved companions, and provide them a comfortable home. Still others of us have made arrangements with a rescue group or sanctuary to care for our furry friends. … Continue reading

Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens?

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say! Two years ago I posted a rant entitled, Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens? The post is getting a good bit of traffic this year, despite Rumpy adding a disclaimer at the top of the page that we no longer believe what I wrote. … Continue reading

Chris Christie: Elected by New Jersey to Serve….. Iowa?

Recently the New Jersey state legislature passed a law banning the use of gestation crates on the state’s 300 pig farms. The bill passed 53-13 in the state Assembly, and 32-1 in the state Senate. Polls suggested that 93% of the state’s population supported the bill. But the bill is not law, because Governor Chris … Continue reading
