I used to do a post which was basically just a list of interesting links and stories I’d found recently. For various reasons I slowly stopped doing it. Which doesn’t mean that I stopped collecting interesting links, I just mostly toss them onto my FB page and promptly forget…..
I’ve decided I really ought to share some of these more, so, here’s some of the links that caught my eye in the last couple weeks:
This one may be past action point, but still good info. NJ wants to make it illegal to buy a pup (or kitten) from anyone “sight unseen”. They also want to remove buyer protections from anyone buying a pup (or kitten) from anywhere. Since its part of a bill to stop the selling of pups (and kittens) in pet stores getting this law stopped will be difficult.
More zero tolerance ruining the lives of kids. Since when are drug detection dogs trained to smell out Advil. Is THAT why we keep hearing about dogs reporting drugs when there aren’t any? And how much is the school paying to have their parking lot checked by drug dogs??
NY’s at it again. This one’s better than some of the others I’ve seen in the past, but it still doesn’t take into account working dogs, and people who work odd hours. AND would require veterinary and ACO written approval to tether a dog for more than 3hrs AND requires that such approval be redone every 60 days. Nor are there accommodations for areas with laws forbidding fencing, or where laws restrict fencing to be no more than 3-4 feet tall requiring a tether as a 2ndary form of restraint.
