Prop B...

How in the world could ANY lawmaker repeal the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Law"??? I mean, all we're asking for is the essentials: food, water and veterinary care. Really? Lawmakers in both the Missouri House and Senate are beginning the repeal process (some, not all lawmakers thank GOD).

How can ANY "reputable breeder" assume that Prop B will put them out of business? If they consider themselves "reputable breeders" (which really, is an oxymoron if I've ever heard one) they should already be providing food, water and veterinary care.

The issue of the "limit" seems to be getting peoples' panties in a bunch. Are you telling me that 50 breeding females is too few? So, the commercial puppy mills out there with 250 breeding females (not to mention all the males and puppies) are able to care for the hundreds of dogs in their care?

I think not.

C'mon people. Let's fight to keep Prop B on the books. This is really stinkin' ridiculous. I can't believe I'm writing this post - can't believe I have to. We all thought the election would be a landslide. It's called the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Act" for Christ's sake!!! Who can argue with that?

I need to meditate, calm down, bring down my blood pressure.

Thanks for reading.


  1. With all the dogs in shelters and rescue groups, why do we care if breeders go out of business. Are they concerned that puppies will become extinct? I thought of you the other day, I heard that many years ago there were no child abuse protection laws. That animals were protected but not kids, so the first child abuse laws were made to give kids the same rights as animals. Wouldn't it be nice if the brought the animal rights back in line with where the kids are now! :-)

  2. Wow Sheri, I really had no idea there used to not be child protection laws? Amazing to think a) how far we've come yet b) how far we've had to come.

    Thanks for reading girl:)
