dog kills dear at zoo

I guess what I don't understand is why they were 3 feet from the dog and a snare pole could not of been used. What actually does it mean that the dog "eye balled" them and caused the officer to shoot instead of apprehending. It seems like it has become the norm to just shoot the dog and carry off in a big black bag.  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #27)

Animal Cruelty

I actually saw 2 dogs outside at the garage on 28th and Westline today. They did not look too "lucky" to be out in this cold weather on a short leash. One had a dinky little house and the other had nothing but frozen water in a bowl. They are clearly visible from the road and I'm surprised no one else has called about them. Dogs are living things and not yard ornaments. Just pathetic how some people treat man's best friend.  (Jan 18, 2012 | post #6)

Corgie mix not let me put a collar on her

I'm no expert but possibly introducing it to her in short periods might be helpful. Try not to make a big deal over it. Show it to her slowly by hand or on the floor and let her get comfortable with it on her own terms.  (Feb 21, 2011 | post #2)

Send some good thoughts my way

Hope all went well with the specialist. It is always upsetting when a 4 legged family member is faced with a challenge.  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #2)

how we can stop dog fighting and breeding dogs for fighting

Dogfighting hurts animals, children and communities. Please be aware of a large number of pit bulls at a location, dogs with scars or wounds, and people visiting at odd hours. Dogfighting is illegal in the U.S and a felony. Be the voice for those who cannot speak.  (Oct 9, 2009 | post #9)

Dog books

Pit bulls need own rules

Breed specific laws punish the wrong end of the leash. I believe my good dogs should'nt have to pay for the irresponsible owners who abuse them.  (Jun 8, 2008 | post #4)

Dog deposits mar bike ride

I always pick up after my dogs on walks. I wish more people would be responsible and do the same. The bags are easily available at pet shops and even the grocery store bags work fine.  (Jun 1, 2008 | post #7)

A passion for pets

We lost our 9 year old male Pit Bull to cancer 2 years ago. This story really hit home with me because I also made the weekly trips to Camboro and Willoughby, Ohio for his treatments. The vet bills came close to $5,000 but would do it again with no regrets. We love our furry family.  (May 30, 2008 | post #16)

Officers to check for dog licenses

I was not asked for proof of anything even though I took the time to bring shot records and spay/neuter certicates along. I feel all they really cared about was my checkbook and not my pets.  (May 14, 2008 | post #6)

Dog-license checks to start May 14 in Erie County

When I went to the groomer today I was surprised to see that they have a sign posted that they are also checking for valid licenses.  (May 7, 2008 | post #18)

Police shooting dogs

My reference was to a more humane way of animal control. I don't blame a cop doing his job against an aggressive dog. Just wondered if there could be an effective alternative to shooting.  (Apr 14, 2008 | post #8)

Dogs

How often do you pick up after your pet on walks?

I can honestly say 99% of the time I do. Since I have 3 large dogs I've found the blue grocery bags do work better for me too. I wish more people would do this comman courtesy. The park where I walk needs more garbage cans to encourage others to pick up after their pets as well.  (Apr 13, 2008 | post #2)
