Posts Tagged ‘Breed Specific Legislation’


Renée says I have a firm spot on the “nice” list so I thought I would send out my letter to Santa before the big day arrives. Pepper and I will be sure to leave a bottle of Leinie’s and a Milk Bone  for Santa and his Reindeer.

Dear Santa,

I don’t really want much for Christmas. Being able to spend time with my family, do my job, have a warm place to sleep and a Kong Ball to gnaw on are the most important things in my world, and I have those already. So as I was curled up snoozing and thinking in my warm sunspot I came up with a few things that I think are especially important.

  • I wish for all the Military Working Dogs   all over the world to find safety and courage in the face of their jobs. May you protect your handlers, find all the weapons and drugs, and on the completion of your tours of duty find a wonderful adoptive home.
  • I wish for the ending of breed specific legislation, spay/neuter laws, and dangerous dog laws that are poorly written and are not helping.
  • I wish for an end to dog fighting through legislation that makes sense…blame the deed not the breed!
  • I wish for a dog friendly United States where I can go run, play and walk because I am responsible and my owner is responsible.
  • I wish all the new puppies and rescued dogs that find their homes over the holidays will explain to their owners the importance of training and exercise.
  • I wish that they would outlaw those flexi/retractable leashes…those things are dangerous for us dogs and our owners.
  • I wish that people would understand that when they bring a dog into their homes, there is a lot of responsibility that comes with it.
  • I wish that when I wake up Christmas morning the room will be filled with Tennis balls, Cuz balls, Discs, Kong balls, tugs and warm beds.

I promise to stay on the “nice” list and work hard in 2009. Pepper said to mention she agrees to everything in my letter although I think she mentioned something about eliminating the squirrels.  She is too lazy to write herself. Have a safe trip Santa, the Leinie’s will be waiting for you and I promise not to bark when I hear you coming down the chimney!

woofs from your favorite Malinois,



Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Winter Solstice to all my friends, human and dog!
