Petition to Laura A.

Return 'Boston' The GoldenDoodle Back!

Nathanael is a passionate entrepreneur and Founder/CEO of Boston Made, Inc. (Instagram) – -- Please take a moment to read my letter and help me get my dog 'Boston' back from a pet-sitter who has stolen him from me. Also, join my fight in animal welfare + advocacy. Please sign the petition and spread the word. Put your signature into action by making a contribution to Boston Animal Rescue Collaborative (BARC) to help ensure animals are safe and protected. Thank you for your help with getting 'Boston' my GoldenDoodle returned back to me.-- Dear Boston, There’s so much that I could say to you right now. I know you can’t talk back to me, and I know that you’re just a dog, right? But you’re not just any ordinary dog… you’re MY dog! You’re my boy… and your daddy loves you! First off, I want you to know that you’re the greatest thing that ever happened to me. In my darkest hour, I wanted to have a friend. I went down to Rhode Island one day and picked you up. I handpicked you and said, “This is my boy”. I’ll NEVER forget that moment! I’ll never forget carrying you home. We were both nervous and scared. I held you in my arms all the way home to Boston. We made a pit stop at a coffee shop so that I could get some coffee and you could take a whiz. I looked down at your little puppy face. We both had big smiles. When we got back home for the first time… I walked inside the elevator with you in my arms… my friend asked me what your name was. I looked her in the eyes… and I said, “His name is Boston.” At that moment, it resonated in me that I had a beautiful GoldenDoodle named Boston. When I took you inside the house, we were both shy. I had just bought you a crate and a nice cushioned bed… I let you sniff around to get a sense of your new home. As you got a little older, you bit things and chewed things. I’ll never forget the one time you chewed my channel changer. You were teething. I’ll never forget the times you pooped inside the house and it really stunk! You had some problems (my fault for not knowing you had a sensitive stomach). Actually, I’ll never forget the time you and me were inside of an elevator and I was trying to impress someone… well actually, three really pretty ladies to be 100% transparent. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out too well. I should have never taken their floor. I should have taken you directly to the bathroom. You had a massive mess on the carpet floor outside of the hallway next to their door… yeah. I’ll never forget that one! I’ll never forget the times I took you to the ocean and we walked Revere Beach. We went and ran on the beach together. I’ll never forget the times you and I would hop in the car and head to the North Shore. We would go to Gloucester and Rockport. We would leave the city and make a day out of it. I’ll never forget taking you to pet stores and getting you groomed and looking pretty. I’ll never forget bathing you and washing you. I’ll never forget the times that you and I would walk all throughout the city. I loved taking you to coffee shops. You would always love the smell from all my favorite sandwich shops. You and I were inseparable. We were best friends forever… literally. I told you everything. I told you all about my day. I told you about my biggest problems in life. You would cuddle with me. We were cuddle buddies. I’ll never forget the times you would jump on me and wake me up and start licking me in the mornings. I would laugh and smile. I’ll never forget the times I took you outside to the dog park. We would meet all these new friends. You were the most joyful dog out of them all. You were the star of the show! Boston, I love you so much. You have no idea how much I miss you. I’m fighting for you. I want you to know that there is nothing in this world that means more to me than you. I hope someday we’ll meet again. I’d love to see that beautiful smile. I’m looking forward to being reunited with you, Boston. Whatever it takes,Nathanael Strickland, Owner of 'Boston' The GoldenDoodle (Instagram) --

Petition to Mr. Matt Buchanan, N. David Smith, William "Bill" Moore

Cancel and Boycott “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Classes - North Carolina Championship Show

Please SIGN this Petition to STOP “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses. Asheville and Fletcher, North Carolina, are two progessive beautiful cities located in Western North Carolina.  Both are known for gentle tolerance, enlightenment and kindness. Unfortunately,  these two cities are hosting the three day “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, Oct. 6 – 8.    Sadly, the horse show will feature “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses.     Tennessee Walking Horses are tortured from an early age to learn how to do the “Big Lick”.   It is a pain induced gait. The horses throw their legs high while wearing Chains and 6 – 8 pound stack shoes.   Caustic chemicals are applied to sensitive skin above the horses hooves, and then wrapped with plastic to “cook in” the chemicals which causes the skin to be blistered.   When the chains hit the skin,  the horses throw their front legs high while squatting down on their back legs – creating the cruel “Big Lick”.  “Big Lick” TWH are the only horses in America which wear Chains in the show ring.    According to Tennessean and Noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,   the "Big Lick" is a "business built on the suffering and pain of horses".   Dr. Haffner is a member of the Horse Science Faculty at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) in Murfreesboro, TN. Even worse, the horse show will be held at the McGough Arena at the Western North Carolina Agriculture Center owned by the State of North Carolina.  Of 83 total horse classes  45 will feature the “Big Lick” gait. In March 2015,   the North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture banned “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses from the 2015 NC State Fair.  This action came after a Change.Org Petition gained almost 20,000 signatures, and a public Protest was held at the 2014 NC State Fair. At the 2015 North Carolina Championship Horse Show,   USDA Vet inspectors disqualified a shocking 35% of all the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses they inspected for allegedly being in violation of the Horse Protection Act (Animal Cruelty). On July 25, 2016,  the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture took action and opened a Public Comment period to make the “Big Lick” illegal by removing the “Pads and Chains”, consequently abolishing the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty.  So far over 81% of the “Public Comments” favor the Federal Regulation to the Horse Protection Act.  The Regulation can be made official after October 26, 2016. It’s time for Americans,  and people all over the World,  to urge the General Manager of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center;  North Carolina Chief Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture;  and the Mayor of Fletcher, North Carolina to ban the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse classes, and to urge the public  to Boycott “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. After you SIGN,  please SHARE the petition with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! Your PETITION Signatures and Comments will be delivered to the proper officials. WE, The People,                                                                             CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty)
