what i'm doing

Boring what-I-did-today post alert.

Mostly trying to save Buster's vision. Multiple trips to the eye-doctor vet, with minimal improvement. Lots of time and money, though joining Zipcar has helped cut down on the stress. (Try to travel by cabs with a pit bull - not fun!) We had been waiting for Zipcar to get a car in our immediate neighborhood before we joined, but now that we need a car more frequently, we'll settle for a short subway ride. Poor B! I'm trying to stay in the present, not think too far ahead and get caught up in worrying...

Last week we went to the funeral of one of my great aunts. She was old and didn't suffer. This leaves one surviving sister, of the five siblings (one of whom was my grandmother). We always wondered who would be last.

My wonderful niece (one of my many wonderful nieces and nephews) who was in rehab for depression is doing much better, thanks to the miracle of anti-depressant medications and her amazing mother. We are greatly relieved. We love her so much!

Is your dog a pit bull? That might cause a problem.

Pit Bulls were recently banned in Ontario. All living dogs were grandfathered in, but I don't know about bringing a pit bull in from outside the province. You might want to check up on that.

Grrr, I hate breed-specific legislation, it's so biased and useless! I call my dog a pit bull, but he is a mix - a no-breed. Guess I'll start calling him something else! Thank you very much for the tip!

There was a dog attack in August, and the politicians responded to the angry letter writers. There wasn't much thought involved.

Yup, that's always what does it. Despite the mountains of evidence that it does no good, that dangerous animals are not breed-specific, that banning breeds only encourages the cruel and illegal behavior that leads to dog attacks... Ah well, that's a soapbox for another day. For some good, honest information, see my friends at Bad Rap.
