This one's just for us dogs!

My name is Hero.
My Mom rescued me when I was found wandering around in the countryside during the wintertime. Someone called my Mom to tell her that a "strange dog" (that's what they called ME!) had been hanging around their house for three weeks and asked if my Mom would take it. Of course, she said "Of course!" Mom runs
"Bluff Country Canine Rescue" and she helps dogs that don't have homes find really GOOD homes where the people love them and take excellent care of them, and they get to live IN THE HOUSE and everything! Since I was brought to the Rescue, Mom had to pay the "Adoption" fee so that she could keep me forever. She says that I was worth every cent!
Because I am such a NICE dog, I let the other dogs that Mom has rescued talk on MY BLOG once in a while.
I hope you'll stop by often and leave a comment so I know that you visited!

Working Ban the Bans!

Hawk did a great post regarding Breed Specific Legislature this morning, and shared some great links to more articles dealing directly with BSL and some of the effects it has and doesn't have.  I know a lot of you guys have addressed the topic too.  Reading Hawk's blog this morning gave me an idea.  I talked it over with the Girls (Bella & Sable) and they agree that it would be worth trying...

 What if we ALL got together and on the SAME DAY posted about BSL?  Every dog blog (and even our non dog friends!) we can connect with do a post about how unfair and ineffective BSL really is.  We could call it the "Ban the Bans"  movement.  What do you think?  I bet if we got some of the "BIG DOGS"  like Snoopy and the Cavaliers behind us and getting the word out, we could get an effective movement going!  Maybe a Saturday Blog Hop with the theme "Ban the Bans"?  We could pick a date far enough out to give us time to get the word out and get as many bloggers as possible involved.  It wouldn't have to be just Dog bloggers either!  The more blogs posting about Banning the Bans on BtB day, the better!  Anyone and everyone with a blog would be welcome to join.  For those who don't have blogs, but support the cause, they could feature it on their Facebook pages or Twitter or any other social media.  We could ask everyone to change their Facebook avatar to a picture of a sweet Pitty on Ban the Ban day.  If we all put our heads together, we'll think of lots of ways to make a BIG NOISE!

What do you guys think?  Would you be willing to get on board and make some noise?  I'd welcome your comments and suggestions concerning this idea.  Talk it over with your friends and let's see if we can get enough dogs and their people on board to really make our voices heard!
