      We have almost hit 100 signatures in one day!
      I went to Boston City Hall today and personnaly spoke with each of the At Large City Councilors and the Mayor's Office. I have yet to speak with Governor Patrick. I cannot thank you all enough for the support for our pets. Let's keep going! Councilor Consalvo and Senator Rush must be educated in this matter and listen to the people who elected them.

      Punish the deed, not the breed! Besides, it's the pet owners, not the pets who need to take responsibility.

      We don't discriminate against different races of people for a reason - it just doesn't make sense. There is no such thing as a dangerous breed - just dangerous owners.

      Dogs should not be judged by a stereotyped "breed" temperament. Judge the deed ~ not the breed. Fight Breed Specific Legislation!! Discrimination based on stereotypical predjudices in any form, be it for humans or animals is NEVER acceptable. Stop the proposal to enact breed specific legislation.
