Treats on the Internets

City Council voted this morning to make Austin a no kill city!

NC Governor's Facebook page has received thousands of complaints regarding the Robeson Co Animal Shelter. Her office posted an intention to look into the complaints.

The Baltimore dog groomer who police had depicted as a "nurse" to dogs used in fights has had animal cruelty charges against her dropped. (H/T to Heather who predicted this scenario)

Kent Co Humane Society in MI fought the law and won on behalf of dogs seized in dogfighting case

Hurray for Austin.

I hope there will be more studies of longevity and spaying of female dogs.

Thank doG eevul squirrel invaders are just donning protective headgear - not Easter bonnets. Otherwise the poor doggies might have to quit EATING them.

You should've said "positive correlation."

We still need a bigger study on lots of different breeds before making a decision.

Hopefully these people won't be funding it (conflict of interest):
