    1. OVER 12,500 SIGNATURES AND GROWING! PLEASE RETWEET & POST TO FACEBOOK

      Samantha Powell
      Petition Organizer

      Petition continues to gain support. Fans efforts have included a day of phone calls to the network expressing their displeasure with their decision to cancel the show. Many fans have made cool avatars, videos, and children have submitted artwork and have written letters of their own. I am astonished at the outpouring of these dedicated fans and the DOGPOUND. Please continue the support. There is no top goal for number of signatures. We need as many as we can get. So continue tweeting it and posting to Facebook. There are still many that are not aware the show has been canceled because it has continued to air. Local markets have syndication rights and reruns are playing on Bio. So be sure to mention there will be no new shows, no season 9 for A&E. Thank you for your continued support and please check out this great tribute video from a very dedicated fan.

    9. Instead of a "TWEET" Send A&E a TREAT!

      Samantha Powell
      Petition Organizer

      Some DOG POUND members want to send a message to A&E by sending "Dog Treats" to the Network. Please send a few dog treats their way. Some have even suggested "Chicken" flavored because A&E is a "chicken" to take Dog off the air. Let's teach an old dog a new trick!

      Please send TREATS to the following:

      It's a wonderful show. They catch the criminals but also try to talk to them, let them know they are worth something and can become something. They've been there, so they know it can be done.

      Who cares about them arguing ever! They are a family, thats what families do most of then time :0) My husband & I enjoy the show because its really down to earth & they are, in my eyes.. the modern policing system that we need in my country, As our police have no idea how to deal with criminals & drugs here. They could do with taking a few lessons from Dog & his family! Kinda like, a home from home sort of thing. I can relate to lots of different stuff that goes on in the show (mostly within the family) and it makes me feel happy and smiley when watching it in the evening with my husband after work :0) Theres nothing better than having something cosy, happy & sometimes tearful to watch on TV - all the Chapmans are pretty cool & each have individual personalities that make them all great to watch and listen to.. good luck to them all, whichever they may end up doing.. People shouldnt be putting them down, instead just enjoy the show. They have more fans than haters!! And this is all that matters. Bring them back. Big Aloha from, Lisa in England. All the best guys :0) xx
