It's always so sad when a kid gets mauled by a dog. I just wish people could understand, it isn't the breed, it's the owner. So sad. Thanks for the info GG!

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

Thanks for the scoop. I'm sending it to my friends in Houston.

The Houston news did a report on "Justin's Law." It was encouraging in that it sounds like Kent is having trouble finding a legislative sponsor for Justin’s Law. The report says she is going to “start pushing” the law at the capitol tomorrow—but we know that she’s been “pushing” it since mid-November.

Please write a quick note to your respective legislators (SENATOR AND HOUSE REP) and simply state that you do not support Justin’s Law, and request that they not support it either. Something very short, like this:

Dear [rep or senator name],

In the following days, a lawyer may ask you to file “Justin’s Law,” a bill that would make felons out of Texas citizens because of the shape of their dog’s body. I do not support this discriminatory proposal, and I ask that you do not sponsor or support this bill.

Thank you,

[Name, address, phone number]

You can find your reps here:
