OK EVERYBODY LISTEN UP!
For all of you haven't heard about Rosie the Newfoundland who what shot to death by police on November 7, 2010 in Des Moines, Washington when she escaped from her yard - you need to read the following: (GRRR! Blogger STILL isn't letting us link websites..GRRR! - so just cut & paste PLEASE!!!:
Here is a petition to sign:
ITS AN ABSOLUTE TRAGEDY...
& just when everyone has come out & said WHAT? A NEWFOUNDLAND? The most gentle creature out there? Well, thank goodness Murphy the Newfoundland in Roseville, MN just said - "ENOUGH TALK - I'LL PROVE IT!" So yesterday he goes & saves his 95 year old neighbor who had fallen and there was no one there to help her.
There is a huge lesson to be learned from all this - Police teams need to be trained on how to read dog behavior. Just as Murphy saved the life of his neighbor yesterday, Rosie can continue to save the lives of other dogs if we use her memory to demand change in the way police departments handle loose animal situations.
So Murphy in Minnesota - YOU ROCK!
& Dear Rosie - Run Free & may you never be scared again.
Love & Licks,
