Exclamation Fed up to HERE & I'm Not taking it anymore!

This is a letter within a letter...that I wrote today.
**************************************

I've sent this letter off to ever Liberal M.P.P. , every media outlet, every mayor of every town that has BSL on it's mind, & every newspaper in those towns!

I am fed up in my own town of being less than a person the minute I take the handle end of my dogs' leashes. I sick of wearing the hat for the owners who won't pick up after their dogs, & the owners who won't train their dogs. I am sick of letters of complaint about dogs & owners to my local paper that have no validity at all. I am sick of Dog Haters & the dog fearful. (If I was terrified of something that I see multiple times a day, I'd go get professional Help!)

I'm sick of a lame duck premier that won't tell The Boy, "No!" I'm sick of reading pages of lies, & sick of hearing 1 lie stacked on top of another. I'm sick sick sick of being beaten up by my own Provincial Government for the crime of
..Nothing!

I own neither Pit Bull, nor Staffy. I have spent hours training our dogs. One of them has been with St. John Ambulance Therapy Dogs, & to get him in there I ended up putting up with tons of crap & a 3 (!!) hour test. (In case he decided to attack another dog or kill somebody?) I am sick of people who are intelligent about their own
breed(s) but insist on being 'Breedist' about other breeds! I am fed up with people who want to save their own dogs at the expense of other people's!

I'm angry at people who think they can put honey on their kids hands to take holiday snaps with wild bears. I'm more angry at people who know so little about an animal that has shared our lives for 50,000 years that they think teaching children about dogs is "Blaming the Victim'. We teach children not to run behind horses without warning. What is this different? Because it's a Dog, & not a horse? We teach kid to use a stove safely..Why? Because the stove can hurt them if they don't follow common safety rules. So, are we blaming the potential burn victim?

Thanks for listening/reading.

Doris


Subject: At what point did we become 'None-People'?


This is an open letter to the Liberal Party of Ontario, & assorted local bandwagon climbers in Towns & Cities across Ontario.


As a law abiding citizen of Ontario, I Demand the right to be
treated better than a criminal! I Demand the right to be treated
better than a Dog Fighter, person involved in Organized Crime, Animal
Abuser, or a thug!

Time & time again All of you have said ,"People Come First" as an
excuse to penalize both the responsible owners,& their innocent dogs.
You have used 'People First' as an excuse to ignore the cruelty that
happens to innocent dogs. You have used it to ignore both the victims
of dog bites, & the victims of Dog Fighters. What about the people
who's pets have been stolen as 'training bait' for these human
monsters? You have hidden behind fake statistics, & bent the truth to
the breaking point.

Innocent people & their dogs are being beaten & harrassed by posses
of psychos, sadists & animal abusers. Incidents of this nature are
being reported every day in Ontario. Are they at fault, & at what
point did they stop being people?

The Provincial Liberal Government, & an assortment of local
goverment parrots & pinheads have decided to punish everybody except
the Guilty parties! Why? 'Because as law abiding citizens we are push-
overs, next to a bunch of thugs with guns? Think Again! Leave us
alone, & go get some guts & bust a dog fighting ring. Go put the
legal boots to people beat on innocent citizens (mostly women so far,
& why am I not surprised about that?) who are walking their dogs! Put your
heads together with people who know what they are talking about & find a
real solution. In short, you Miserable, Lily-Livered, COWARDS-
Go Get The BAD GUYS!!

I sooo agree. I am so fed up with people who think the laws don't apply to them, and make every pet owner look bad. I am also fed up with fellow dog owners who support Bill 132, because they're too ignorant to know that by supporting it, that they'll be sending their own dog to the grave should it pass.

I hear ya on the breedist thing

yay breedist is being used, yay, i knew it was a correct term. where did you get it though? have you seen it used in publications? i would love to meet the person that came up with the same word i did, gosh this language is great and the parralellisms we come up with individually are just amazing.

so where did you find it, that is great (and such an applicable and useable term) is it being used in the big publications

along with breedists i also use speciest, that is a person who treats one species with more respect than another, such as ppl who fight for pig rights but dont think cows are worth it, speciest. for more of my melisms, please dont hesitate to contact me

Talking The 'breedist' thing started some time ago.

I met some people, actually when i was doing St. J's A. Therapy Dog. I met some people who were quite well read & intelligent about their own breed, but were very predjudiced & ill-informed about other breeds. I also found out how weird some people are about unregistered dogs, esp if their dog is reg'd.
Most all Unreg'd dogs & Mutts are great dogs! .. it's all good!

Racist, sexist, ageist,..it just seemed to fit with the rest of the ignorance.

I am equally and thoroughly disgusted at the ignorance.All the pit bull haters want them banned, yet have never met a pit bull in their life. These are the same people who educate themselves through their local paper that profits on the misery and despair of others!!

Great letter I have also started to send letters to my politicians. I told them how sick and tired I am of being sworn at, spit at and been harassed by a bunch of goofs that would be even more dangerous if they actually had brains. I guess they could become liberals. I also said that as of now I will be looking for legal avenues in case anything happens to my dog or myself I will hold the irresponsible liberal party responsible since they are the ones who have incited this mob mentality on non-dog owners. I have also stated facts against the ban and a link to goodpooch.com to the owners who have been harrassed. I think we need to start documenting all of these incidents and report them everytime.
