Continuing in my theme that I write about "nothing in particular" I'd like to begin by saying that there are a lot of perfectly good things to have with your morning coffee. May I be so bold as to suggest that you have a healthy dose of Laura Nyro with your coffee? Any day that starts with her sweet voice in your ears is automatically a good one, regardless of what follows.
Having said that, I was absolutely hopping mad on Tuesday evening to learn that a breed ban had been passed at the Montreal city council meeting. These bans are bad for everyone - they punish perfectly behaved, loving family dogs and the folks who love them. You want to crack down on "dangerous dogs" try cracking down on the pond scum who betray these beautiful animals and allow them to be in situations where they are reactive and "dangerous." There is no such thing as a dangerous breed but there are dangerous, ignorant people. They should not be allowed near innocent animals. I'd like to encourage you to sign the petition below and ask that this ban be overturned before dogs in sheltered are killed for no good reason.
Montreal, I love you. I love visiting you, I love waking up in you, walking your streets, listening to your music, eating your food, meeting your people. You are one of my favourite cities. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that until this stupid ban is overturned, I'll not be visiting you. C'mon Montreal, wake up and smell the kibble!!
