Thanks for the break down. Great post.

Missouri Proposition B: Dog Breeding Regulations, also known as the Puppy Mill Bill.
A "YES" vote will amend Missouri law to require large-scale dog breeding operations to provide each dog under their care with sufficient food, clean water, housing and space; necessary veterinary care; regular exercise and adequate rest between breeding cycles. The amendment further prohibits any breeder from having more than 50 breeding dogs for the purpose of selling their puppies as pets. The amendment also creates a misdemeanor crime of "puppy mill cruelty" for any violations.
A “NO” vote will not change the current Missouri law regarding dog breeders.
How will you vote on November 2?

Yeaaahhhhhh! I just had a preggo dog dumped in my yard. No one wants this damn thing or it's 6 pups! What should I do? Go pay the local shelter 30 bucks each to take them, redump them or kill them all? WTF? I didn't ask for this. You are all a bunch of dumb ass hillbillies if you are buying a dog from the mills. You just make the problem worse for people like me who live out in the country and get all your unwanted pets when your attraction fizzles.If you don't want the dog, drown it, suffocate it but quit dumping the damn things. It's your problem if you asked for it.

If we lose the right to farm.It will apply to all animals. Oh some folks don't realize that a lot of their food comes from the farmers. I wonder ! Hmm where will our food come from.

I think we all can agree that there are bad breeders out there who should be shut down. I've seen one of those puppy mill dogs in person. Cute little mini dachshund. It took the owner a couple of years to get the dog used to the fact that not all people are bad people. The dog came from an old woman who was taking care of 100 dogs confined in rabbit cages.

Yes I'd like to see outfits like that shut down but sometimes we make these laws as a one size fit's all law. If this is a one size fits all law it will probably affect honest owners more than it will the bad ones.

What usually happens after laws like these are passed is that the little guy can no longer afford to get in the business of raising dogs. I would love to raise dachshunds because I love the breed. Only those companies that can afford the start up costs will be in the dog business.

People don't realize this but many small businesses get put out of business by Govt regulation. My little town once had a meat market. The Govt. put it out of business because they wanted fewer places to inspect. They wanted and still want businesses to be concentrated in large facilities where they can keep a better eye on them.

The fellow who ran our market made a decent living here. Now he makes hot dogs at the Oscar Meyer plant for less money.

I am going to study this bill. If it meets my requirements I'll vote yes. If it don't I'll just sadly shake my head and vote no.

Like I said earlier I'd love to raise a few quality dogs. They would not be for show. I'd go for health and personality. The Dachshund breed is being ruined by bad breeders. I have no intention of being one who contributes to that.

SURPRIZE is right. If you send your money to HSUS, it's much more likely to be used to lobby than it is to take care of animals. HSUS should remove the animals from their commercials and replace them with sad little overpaid lawyers.

Support your local shelter. Do not support HSUS or PETA.
