Sorry for making everyone leak yesterday. I've never been homeless, but me and Dutch were both recycled so it was really cool to hear about all the humans who do things to help with the recycling. My human says every little thing counts because even little things can make a huge difference
Oh. And superthanks Ollie-the-generous-Canadian-beagle for making a donation in my honor. Huge!
Anyway. Right now I'm feeling half leaky/half angry, but about something totally different. Today's leaky-anger-ness is about the National Park people. It's a superlong story and since some of you live in places like New Jersey and Poland and Brazil and Texas, I won't tell the whole entire story (you can read about it here).
The supershort version is this:
The National Park people want to change the rules for a lot of our local fun places. Right now, the rules say dogs are OK. Off-leash dogs are OK. But the new rules say leashes. Or no dogs at all. And it sucks.
These are places we go all the time. All the pictures you've seen of me and Dutch having fun off-leash? Taken at these places. But if the Park people get their way, you'll be seeing a lot less fun because we'll be spending the rest of lives on the end of a 6-foot leash.
Unless we go to the dog park and get beat up (which is what happens whenever I go to the dog park).
The whole thing makes me very sad. And mad too. I got an email from another sad/mad SF pug who lives near one of the soon-to-be-unfun places and he asked if I could do something to help. We already wrote a letter to let the Park people know their new rules suck. I totally want to change the world and really want to do something more, but what?
I know my human will let me use the power of Nikon or the video thingy, but I don't know what to do with them. I need some serious ideas, or my days of running free might be totally over soon.
