I am going to take a break from pets.ca. I am getting more and more upset and frustrated with reading information about the ban. I know I am supposed to be able to stop myself from opening the threads and not reading the stories, but I just can't. I am constantly upset, short tempered, and just plain miserable from reading this information.

While I was on vacation 2 weeks ago I really enjoyed the fact that ignorance was really bliss. I had no idea what was going on, I had no information about stupid Michael Bryant. I knew that my dog was safe and happy, that's all I needed...

I will see you again eventually. Please, keep fighting... I know I haven't done much... but I need a break for a bit...

Awwww Sammiec,we'll miss you,but I can sympathise..
If I had a pit-bull I would be heartbroken,all this negativity when you know your dog is a wonderful dog.
Knowing the way I feel about my cats and other animals,they would get my dog over my dead body :evil:
I am so sorry I helped vote in this animal-hating government but I know one thing for sure,it will never happen again!!!
Please come back...we are all friends here :grouphug:

When I hear people who assume they are knowledgable about animals talk about how vicious pitbulls are, they remind me of the same kind people who contend that Siamese cats are nasty and vicius kitties. Fortunately, no one has ever tried to ban them and I have not followed the situation as closely as I would if I did have a pitbull but the whole things just strikes me as political opportunism!

You guys are such sweethearts! Don't worry, I'll come back. I just need a break right now.

If I'm not back in time, have a wonderful, safe, and merry holiday season... and a happy new year!!

Sorry to see you go Sammiec, hopefully, one day since we live in the same city, I get to meet these lovely dogs of yours at the dog park, or out and about around Brampton. I totally understand your frustration about what is going on... I feel the same way. I couldn't even bring myself to post on the thread about Pits being shot at in Hamilton today.
Take care of yourself and your kids, Happy Holidays, and we hope to hear from you soon!! :sorry:

Cyberkitten, you said " I have not followed the situation as closely as I would if I did have a pitbull" Just because you personally are not owned by a Pitbull, it doesn't mean the bannings do not affect you. Your rights, as well as anyone else's are liable to be stripped if you do nothing. Perhaps one day all cats, especially Siamese will be forced to be de-clawed or de-voiced.

You ( that's a generic "you") should be fighting this because it's simply wrong.



First They Came for the Pitbulls


First they came for the Pitbulls
and I did not speak out
because I did not have a Pitbull.
Then they came for the German Shepherds
and I did not speak out
because I did not have a German Shepherd.
Then they came for the Rottweilers
and I did not speak out
because I did not have a Rottweiler.
Then they came for the INSERT ANY BREED HERE
and there was no one left
to speak out for my INSERT ANY BREED HERE

========================================

Here is the original poem

First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Sammi....you will be hunted down, dragged back here..kicking & screaming if need be..you cannot hide...you already sold your soul to helping the uninformed critter lover's of this world, you still owe.

I believe you are stronger than what you posted, you CAN ignore what bothers you.

Take a vacation...a breather...but you will report back soon, agreed?






Smooches from the super uber goober dog & me!

That's just silly.

I pondered the thought of starting a new thread, but that would make it seem like I "wanted a show down". Cyberkitten's statement was here, in this thread.

I think thread hijackings are tacky when done on a personal note.


My .02 cents.

I hope I'm not too late to wish you well also Sammi! I hope you pop in once in awhile to just visit and maybe post a photo or two of Briggs.
