This Week's Barking News Roundup - 01/18/13

Florida governor RETURNED the rescue dog he adopted for his 2010 election campaign... AFTER he'd won

Excerpt: On Monday, reporters confronted Scott about the case of the vanishing dog. The governor said that Reagan ‘scared the living daylights’ out of everyone living at his Tallahassee mansion and that it wasn’t working out.

The dog, he said, would not stop barking if he saw a person carrying something.

Is your dog barking mad or just feeling ruff?

Excerpt: In an effort to determine what is normal woofing, an Auckland animal behaviourist has bugged the houses of 60 dogs and recorded how much they barked when their owners were out.

To which I say: The results were not surprising. The dogs did much more barking than was expected. Which means that those of us who complain about the noise should be treated with more respect by the authorities.

In case you're wondering why we're treated so disrespectfully, here's a clue: Animal control agencies have been hijacked by extremists who couldn't care less about human health and safety. We're just the lowly taxpayers who foot the bill for their "animals above all else" agenda.

  1. I used to know an officer that worked at one of the DC shelters back in the 90's. Back then it was their policy to euthanize all pit bulls that came through their doors. Take a look at their lovely roundup today:

    This is their NY Ave site which has quite a few dogs. Their Georgia Ave site has fewer dogs, but every single one is a pit or a pit mix. You are so correct when you say that AC has been hijacked by the extremists. You can tell by the breeds of the dogs that are most prevalent in the shelter which type of extremist you are dealing with.
