Ms. Amiel's article is interesting, but I'm alarmed that she endorses a book by this character:


Thanks for all the resources. I enjoy visiting your blog as a place to get as much dog information from one spot as I can. I like that you include blogs worth reading in your roundups.



I'm not always on top of all my blogs reading but try to include them when I can - -there is a lot of great stuff out there.

HH, I kind of missed that they linked to her book in that article -- and I concur with your and Shirley's opinion about her little scheme(her little conference was cancelled when there was no interest).

I'm glad to hear that conference was canceled. Hope the "no interest" was really "staying away in droves" due to the blogonauts calling BS on her and making a lot of noise.

It's frightening how someone can manipulate the media to help create a persona out of wet tissue and frog farts.


Look at that last dog bite story. Buried in the middle, there's a single reference to the dog as a 'pit bull,' even though it clearly isn't.

It's making me think maybe they wrote the whole story as a 'pit bull attack,' then someone thought better and changed it at the last minute.


That Illinois law is good, but has a provision that is very problematic. 'A designated dog cannot live within 500 ft of a school, playground, park, or daycare.' So what happens when a daycare is opened at a neighbor's house - does the dog get punished by having to leave or die? That needs to explored a bit more, I think.

Otherwise, thanks for all the great information you offer. You have patience and dedication that's quite dog-like, and that's a compliment!
