1826.25

It has been 1826.25 days since my “pit bull type dog” has gone pit. 1826.25 days since my “pit bull type dog” has morphed into the infamous land shark that lurks the concrete ocean.  I’m not sure what is going on with him, but in 1826.25 days that he has been alive, my mutant land shark has failed at evolving into the hideous beast that Dogsbite.org swears to me would have happened in at least the 2nd year of his life.

2011 was the year our “pit bull type” dog graced our door steps. Little did I know, that according to Dogsbite.org, 2011 was the year that the world was going to end all because we had a “pit bull” puppy entering our small household. While our “pit bull” puppy did not go all “pit” on anyone that year, some pretty epic things did happen that had absolutely nothing to do with pit bulls.

  1. Burma’s Move Towards Democratization
  2. Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot along with twelve others while making a public appearance in Tucson
  3. On March 11th an underwater earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 hits off the coast of Japan, causing a tsunami that hit the Iwate prefecture with waves over 130 feet high.
  4. On May 2nd, it was announced by US President Obama that Osama Bin Laden had been found and killed by US Navy Seals in Abbottabad, Pakistan
  5. The US Military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that banned open homosexuality in the armed forces was officially repealed on September 20th.

( I can’t decide.. does he look he’s  about to gnaw on my leg or is he wanting the plate of treats I have cut up for him?)

In 2012, our big eared bat dog- the every growing “pit bull type” puppy had failed to eat me, my husband, our other pets and any other family member. Surely, he was just a late bloomer? Well, according to Dogsbite.org, our black landshark just hadn’t reached the magic age yet. The transformation from family dog to man eating dinosaur was scheduled for early 2013, of course my family was on high alert! When would this monstrous morph happen? While we were sleeping? Going grocery shopping? At work? 2012 was a rough year, sleeping with one eye opened and bread sticks placed everywhere just in case we had to stop the Dogsbite.org guarantee of the murderous change in our undog.

s10

(Excuse me.. but I muuuustache you a question..)

2013 rolled in with a bang! This was the year, Dogsbite.org confirmed, year 2 was the magical number. According to Dogsbite.org founder, year 2 was when pit bulls go from loving pooches into murderous man eating land sharks bent on earths destruction.  So we waited…..

Queen Elizabeth II had her Diamond Jubilee, mass shooting at Aurora Colorado movie theatre, Curiosity Rover landed on Mars, the first Marvel’s The Avenger movie released, Hurricane Sandy rolled in and caused mass destruction… yet, my demon dog from the bowels of Satan slept through it all. What the heck? How could this have happened? I mean, according to Dogsbite.org and BSL advocates, 96% of pit bull types have killed people, pillows and animals and the remaining 4% just killed stuff and stayed unreported.

(Jebus… they look like twins!!)

2014….you know, maybe our “pit bull type dog” just wasn’t a mauling sort of beast, maybe his weapon was gas. Maybe, just maybe he was trying to kill us with his silent and deadly gas passing? It came close a few times… 2015 came and went and it seems as if he’s just gotten lazier, like the direct opposite of what Dogsbite.org  swore to be me that he would become. It’s June 10, 2016 and as I peek under my desk watching my land shark sleep curled up on a over stuffed animal, I realize just how awesome my land shark is and how millions of families feel the same way about their gas passing pooches.

(Gee…. I wonder who the grumpy one in the house is?)

At the end of the day, my dog, like millions of others like him are just that- dogs. I wish I could say he’s just like every other dog, but that would be a lie, because he isn’t. No dog is just like the next dog and every dog should be judged as a individual dog. Isn’t that what dog shows do? You could have 5 of the same breed standing in the same line and only one will be placed #1?

s2

So yes, my dog comes before any BSL/Dogsbite.org member roaming the internet. Why is that? Because my dog is innocent, just like millions of other. My children deserve to chose the breed of dog they want when they become responsible adults. They deserve to do the research, reflect on their own personal experience and make responsible decisions themselves and I refuse to let BSL advocates who can’t even maintain their own lives make that choice for my children, our pets and their future pets.

Borchardt Calls for “War” Against Pit Bull Owners.

Borchardt, founder of Daxton’s Friends has declared all out war on Pit Bull owners after the release of the new book written by Bronwen Dickey.

At this moment, sitting behind his computer in the great state of Wisconsin, Borchardt is messaging all of his fellow fear mongering minions and stuffing envelopes with his fliers while he seethes with his ever growing rage that the public is finally seeing just how hateful and violent the BSL movement has become thanks to a new article that was written by Josh Shaffer. It’s no secret that Borchardt is partially responsible for creating Pit Bulls & Amputees, an ” anonymous ” facebook page dedicted to the usual BSL reteric and Shaffer explains in the article just how BSL advocates attempt to stay anonymous while indulging in their usual online hate cyber attacks.  The bottom line? Borchardt is very mad, once again.

borchardt

Not only does Borchardt send the materials used in physical stalking done by Craig Brown, he brags about it and in usual Borchardt’s  fanatic behavior, everyone who disagrees with him and the fundamental concept of BSL are all liars and frauds. He doesn’t want to hear a single thing UNLESS you are actively out stalking people who dare to speak up against the flawed BSL concept and his fragile grip on reality is slipping and it becomes glaringly obvious in his latest fanatical rant.

borchardt2

Calling millions of innocent families that chose to have pit bull/bully types and the common mutt for a pet as domestic terrorists is a great example of just how obsessive and all consuming Borchardt has become in the outright attack of the majority of the United States population. Ironically enough, the very thing he outlines in his rant, is the one thing he denies those who he is continuously attacking. Let’s break down his idiot questions and answer them:

  1. Can you find common ground with people that could give a shit about you and your family? 

Has Borchardt found common ground with the millions of pit bull owners attempting to keep their family pets safe from the erratic and often dangerous behavior from his BSL movement? Does he give a “shit” about the millions of families living peacefully with their pit bull  type dog? That answer is obvious after you check out the many facebook pages created by Borchardt, many like his facebook page where he posts pictures of children who have pit bulls in the family. How many of those families has he victimized?

2. Can we find common ground with people who refuse to listen to your point of view,   discredit your source, or refuse to read the victim’s stories?

I don’t know, can Borchardt find common ground with the millions of families that are living peacefully with their dogs even after Borchardt attempts to discredit all of the professional affiliations that do not support BSL? Can he find common ground with the families affected negatively by BSL or will he continue to mock families that have to give up their innocent pet because of BSL?

3. Can we find common ground with people who care more about dogs than the innocent children maimed, mauled and killed by these dogs?

While the majority of the population sympathizes for the loss of a child or an injury done to a dog, the majority of the population still realizes just how rare dog bite fatalities are.  Why should families give up their innocent dogs because a tragedy happened? If you are a gun owner, will you be giving up your guns because a child was killed by a gun thousands of miles from you? Studies have shown just how ineffective BSL has been and how other methods such as education is one of the greatest tools in reducing dog attacks.

4. Can we find common ground with people who flat out deny the history and heritage of these dogs?

It’s interesting that Borchardt keeps circling back to the “history” and “heritage” of all pit type dogs. It’s no secret what the original purpose of the original breed was for and while there are obviously still dog fighters attempting to recreate the lineage perfect for the gruesome and illegal act of dog fighting, it’s a safe bet to say that the majority of “pit type dogs” sitting in homes are glorified mutts. Could they have “pit bull” in them? Of course, but then again, they could also have lab, poodle, great dane and about 400 other breeds mixed with them. Those that have  American Pit Bull Terriers are not blind to the history of their chosen breed and many of those that have rescued dogs from a fighting operation know all too well about why their dogs were created and yet it’s those individuals, like the owners of the Vick dogs that have done the greatest service to their community by showing just how amazing these dogs can be when taken out of the abusive environment.

borchardt3.PNG

Yet Borchardt still wonders why people just won’t toss their own beliefs out the window and support him and his failing cause. Not only does Borchardt search for conflict, he obviously enjoys the ability to stalk and confront people that he knows will not see eye to eye with him, either that or he is short that many brain cells where he honestly thought going to obvious rescuers that worked on finding homes for pit bulls would really sit down and listen to a man whose main goal is to kill all of their adoptable dogs that were pit bull type dogs?

At the end of the day Borchardt loves the conflict and trauma he inflicts. While he will never publically announce that he was the driving force and one of the admins of the Pit Bull and Amputee pages ( that ironically changed their name to “Pit Bull Public Safety Education”), it’s no secret in the inner circle of his fear mongering morons that he is one of the few running that offensive hate page. He’s more than welcome to dispute it, which he will, but he will not offer up any evidence to back his claim, which for Borchardt, that’s just the norm.

Borchardt calls for war and as usual, it’s just one more thing he will fail at.

He Will Give You One Chance to Say Exactly What He Want’s You to Say…

what-do-you-want-me-to-say

 

Borchardt is just so kind to us “willfully ignorant pit bull activists”. Just how is he so kind to us? Well, he takes time from his usually non-busy day to write a blog post about how he will give you a chance to make ONE comment on his one of hundreds of facebook pages and not get banned. What’s the catch ( because, we know there is always a catch…) ? You just have to say exactly what he wants you to say.

Seems rather simple, right? WRONG!  First, you have to listen to the barrage of names that you have to agree to be called. Nope, it doesn’t matter just how inaccurate they are, you just have to roll with the names. What are the names? Let me list a few:

You have to agree that YOU are:

  • Willfully ignorant
  • Brain washed
  • Ill- informed
  • Uneducated
  • White trash
  • Hood rat
  • Criminal
  • Uneducated
  • Poor
  • Welfare recipient
  • Prostitute
  • Drug Dealer
  • Murderer
  • Child-hater
  • Cee U Next Thursday
  • Piece of Sh@t


GIFSoup

If you agree to the names, then you can move on to the next step. Borchardt being Borchardt kindly jotted down the things that you CAN NOT say, that list doesn’t seem tooo bad…..

  • “Any dog is capable” ( Duh… because NO other dog can bite or kill…..right?)
  • “All dogs bite” ( Nope, only one type of dog can bite, like ever.)
  • “Sorry for you Loss, but or Sorry for you loss, However…” ( Don’t even try to point out the common sense factors in a news article….)
  • “You’re Ignorant” ( Because BSL Advocates ARE NEVER ignorant…)
  • “Educate Yourself” ( Dogsbite.org and Merritt Clifton are the only education they need.)
  • “Back in the 70’s,n 80’s….” ( Because those days and those breeds just don’t matter.)
  • “According to the NCRC, AVMA, UKC, AKC, etc….”( No use for those stinkin’ experts at all…)
  • “My pit bull is sweet and would never hurt a fly.” ( Like Millions of them…)
  • “All dogs show warning signs.” ( Even though they do, it doesn’t matter, right?)
  • “It’s the owners.” ( Even though it is most of the time…)
  • “Pit bulls pass the ATTS test.” ( Even though they do…)
  • “Petey was a pit bull, or Sgt. Stubby.” (Even though they were…)
  • “Pit mixes are not pit bulls.” (Most normal people call mixes “mutts”.. but who cares?).
  • “BSL doesn’t work because it doesn’t stop all dog ‘bites.” (Even though that statement has been proven correct..)

 

Now the important part: The things that Borchardt will ALLOW you to say:

“Wow, I didn’t know that.”

 “I had no idea it was so bad.”

 “I will take extra precaution with my fighting breed from now on, especially around children.”

 “I will look into a break stick and how to use it.”

 “I’m so sorry for your loss.” (no BUT’S)

 

We have created these pages in an attempt to spare other families and friends of the pain and suffering we have had to endure by giving you HONEST information. Not DISHONEST information from the countless organizations and TV shows whom are OWNED, CONTROLLED, or FUNDED by dog breeders, owners, veterinarians or animal welfare groups that have a vested interest in keeping the status of pit bulls unregulated, but HONEST information from people that have nothing to gain from this position. – Jeff Borchardt

 

(Just a small sample of those honest and educational groups Borchardt offers to the public…)

Who is ready to test out Borchardt’s  offer? I will be honest, I will have to pass…. I have way to much fun proving their bullshit wrong.

The Borchardt Blame Game- Who Really is to Blame?

Who is to blame when it comes to a fatal dog attack? Bessie Flowers, 86 years old and brutally mauled by her daughters two “pit bull” dogs. Two dogs that have had numerous complaints about aggression issues.

 

“Neighbors told WCCB that the animals had shown aggressive behavior in the past and had warned authorities about them.

One male neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said: ‘There have been two incidents with those dogs. They attacked other dogs here. No one has done anything about it. I constantly told people that they are going to kill someone.’

Police records show that officers were called to the home once before in 2013 to reports of two aggressive animals, but the reports were not substantiated.”

 

 

Most “normal” people would look at the dog owner who obviously continued to own two dogs with previous aggression issues, however there is nothing “normal” when it comes to the bizarre behavior of Borchardt, the founder of Daxton’s Friends (the alleged “educational site” with zero educational material.).  Who does Borchardt blame for this horrible preventable tragedy?

A bunch of random strangers. Strangers that have absolutely no connection to the victim or the victim’s family. Strangers that had zero influence on the behavior of the dogs. That doesn’t matter to Borchardt, because it’s EVERYONES fault.  It’s YOUR fault! It’s that random person’s fault! It’s that homeless man’s fault! It’s hollywoods fault! It’s all of the veterinarians fault! The police departments fault! It’s Obamas fault!

fault.jpg

Typical cowardly Borchardt fashion, he take the blame game a step further and encourages the online harassment of a woman (key word… woman) who dared to speak out against his childish tirade:

blame9

… and guess who is liking each disgusting and vile comment?

blame13.PNG

This is just another glaring example of why BSL is fundamentally flawed, because the focus is more about the humans and very little about the dogs and BSL advocates prove this every single day. They have made sure that breed specific legislation encourages discrimination (against the dog owners), it encourages racism (against the dog owners), it glorifies sexism and misogyny (against the dog owners) and educates unstable individuals in ways to hurt/kill/maim both animal and humans. The Breed Specific Legislation advocacy has becomes this festering cesspool of fear, hate and violence and that is the environment that they love.

nohatebig

Thank God we won’t stay silent and we will always speak louder than their hate… which scares them very, very, very much.

Making History

It’s amazing how one phone call can change so many lives and that is exactly what happened with the Dampman family, Philadelphia and for one little brindle pit bull puppy. Like so many dogs, the little brindle puppy wasn’t born into the greatest of environments, but like millions of others, that little brindle puppy will grow up to be yet another amazing dog that demolishes the negative stereotype of his breed.

chad.PNG

Chrissy Dampman was no stranger to the rescue world. Rescuing pit bulls and pit bull mixes from the sewers of Philadelphia, injured and starved, she’s always had room in her heart for the breed. After a divorce from her husband of 15 years, she wanted to do something besides just rescuing and loving them, she wanted to take that extra step and when she had the opportunity, she decided that is exactly what she would do.

 

Ring Ring

The chance came in November 2012, just a week before Thanksgiving.  Chrissy’s daughter called her from the Delaware County SPCA excited about a small brindle pit bull puppy.  Brewsky, rescued along with his litter mates off a corner being sold for drugs had caught the eye of Chrissy’s daughter and she knew he belonged with their family and just like that, the Dampman family were on the path of making history.

First things first, Brewsky changed to Chad and puppy training started. “Chad was an awesome puppy. I exposed him to everything from day one. Kids, people, other dogs, noises, flooring and of course puppy classes, which he always did so well in. Teachers and people just loved him.” recalls Chrissy, “He just had the quality of attracting people wherever we went.” It didn’t take long for Chrissy and her family to realize that Chad had so much to give and share and Chrissy couldn’t wait to take that journey with him.

Baby Steps

Like many dog owners out there, Chrissy and Chad found themselves at Petsmart. Knowing how important socialization training is for puppies, Chad found himself around other dogs and learning the basics. It didn’t take long for the energetic puppy to let his owner know that he was wanting more than just the basics.   Wanting more for Chad, Chrissy started searching around for different places that offered much more than the just the basic training and it wasn’t long until she found Philly Unleashed.

Philly Unleashed, rated Best of Philly of 2015, has seen their fair share of amazing dogs and dedicated owners.  Connecting with an amazing trainer, Jennifer Green, Chrissy and Chad enrolled in classes and it didn’t take long for their trainer to see just how special Chad was and asked if Chrissy was interested in working with Chad to become a Therapy dog.  That path had never dawned on Chrissy and she decided to research it and look at Chad a bit differently, “I started watching and noticing his behavior around young children, even babies. With people in general, and I really thought he had that skill.” Chrissy knew it would be hard work but it was something she knew both her AND Chad could do.

The Road of Awesomeness

Contrary to BSL Advocates, not every dog can pass the Canine Good Citizen training & testing and what is so great about dog owners that participate in the training for the certificate is that it isn’t just about the dog, it’s about how hard the owner AND dog are willing to work together to be great examples of responsible dog ownership.  Chrissy and Chad faced ten tests and they knew they couldn’t fail one single test, yet, that is exactly what happened the first time around. Feeling defeated and embarrassed, Chrissy just didn’t know if they would be able to succeed. The trainers and evaluators knew that Chad had it in him and Chrissy and him just needed to work on it just a bit more. Unsure but knowing deep down that Chad was meant to be a therapy dog, Chrissy rolled up her sleeves and went back to work with Chad and they were not going to stop until they both succeeded. Chad took his test twice and by then, the once playful and goofy puppy learned to understand the difference between play time and working time.

It wasn’t long after the completion of earning his CGC certification, that he went on to therapy dog training and registered with Therapy Dogs International. In November 2014, Chad was the first pit bull accepted into the pet therapy program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and that alone was not an easy task. Chrissy and Chad had to go through interviewing and screening, Chad had to be medically and behaviorally screened through the Mathew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, background checks, Child abuse clearances, health clearances and orientation and training. He isn’t done yet with breaking stereotypes, in 2015, Chad the Pit bull was nominated for the 2015 AKC award for canine excellence in recognition of his services as a therapy dog.

Dealing with Ignorance

Sadly, like millions of other owners, Chrissy and Chad have caught the attention of BSL advocates and have come under attack from them. Why you ask? For being awesome examples of just how amazing Chad is… and because of his breed.  Just recently, Dogsbite.org volunteer, Julie Wall sent an email with the purpose of harassing the Dampmans and unfortunately the Dampmans are not the first nor will they be the last victims of Dogsbite.org members and volunteers.

It’s no secret that William Johnson, outspoken member of Dogsbite.org & Daxton’s Friends resides in Philadelphia, is known for launching cruel attacks on families of therapy dogs, his last online harassment campaign was against an family with an autistic child and their service dog Pupcake and he isn’t alone.

idiots.PNG

When you are making history and breaking stereotypes, you are bound to stir up the haters, which is exactly what people like Solesky, Johnson and Wall are.

“I think stuff like this when it happens makes you stronger and it makes you want to work harder for people to see and realize and try to make them understand”

 

Chrissy absolutely understands the stigma that is placed unfairly on Chad and millions of other dogs based off their apparent breed and how they look. When asked how she felt about the annoyance and harassment from BSL advocates,  she sharesWell to be honest with you. It’s no different then when I am working with Chad and people point out what he is and pick up their children and run away. It happens in my neighborhood all the time and I have had that happen to me at children’s hospital as well. ” She refuses to let it stop her and Chad from helping and educating, “I try to educate everyone I meet about them. It’s becomes not just about Chad then, it’s about all of them. I feel like I fight for him everyday. And if I touch or change one person along the way then I have done my job !!!”  It’s a never ending job and it’s a job that Chrissy and Chad are always going to be working at.

2016 will be a big year for the duo. Chad is being honored with the 2016 Ginger award from the Delaware county SPCA. The award is given to an exemplary pit bull in the community who is a breed ambassador. He will be getting the award on April 9th and 10th.

Grief, Healing and a Hope for the Future.

The month of December is filled with over packed malls, toy commercials bombarding the air waves, family gatherings and a sense of excitement for most as the 25th day of December approaches but for one family in Port Huron Michigan, they are standing together attempting to make sense of a horrible tragedy that ruthlessly ripped a loved family member away from them.

image

“We were standing down by the river, she was wearing a long pink skirt on it and the wind blowing in her hair. It was then I knew I had found the one.”- Matt Gratton

Matt Gratton, does not even know where to begin. Never once did he imagine that he would planning a funeral for the love of his life, the mother of their beautiful daughter and without his family’s help he would feel even more lost.. if that’s even possible.

December 3rd, 2015- his young fiancee Becca Hardy was mauled to death by two dogs a few houses down from her home.

PORT HURON, Mich. (WJBK) – A 22-year-old woman has died after she was attacked by two dogs in Port Huron on Thursday.” (WJBK)

Becca, according to her loving fiancé and her family was an amazing young woman and a loving mother to the couples 18th month old daughter, Molly and her family can’t help but think of those happy memories. Her Aunt Shell, grief stricken shares, “Becca was an amazing mother, she would take Molly everywhere with her. The park, the beach and visiting family.” Fiancé Matt Gratton shares, “We would play peek a boo with our daughter and regularly sit in the dining room and play catch with the beach ball.”

image

The first time I ever met Becca was one night at my dads.” Matt remembers fondly, his grief apparent as he struggles a bit.   “Her Mom and my Dad are friends. She was younger, only 17yrs old at the time and I had just stopped at my dads to hang out for a bit and she fell asleep in a chair. I set up a bed for her tucked her in and went home like a proper gentleman. It wasn’t that big of a deal to me its just the person I am”.

image

Matt pauses for a moment, “We survived everything designed to tear relationships apart and only came out closer. Our relationship had its problems but all do.  True love is sticking together through thick and thin and that’s exactly what we did. We had actually started trying for our second child recently because our daughter is growing up to quick for our liking.”

Guilt, agony, shock and anger came over the father and Fiancé as he waited for his soon to be wife to arrive at the hospital, beating the ambulance there.
My first thought was who is going to teach our daughter all the things a mommy is supposed to teach her? I immediately blamed myself for not being there to protect her and was flooded with a million what ifs…things I could or should have done differently. I just basically wanted to go back in time and change it but I cant.”

image

Amazing enough, Matt or other family members do not blame the breed (s) of dogs responsible for the attack.
One thing I definitely want to say is I feel these people are so set on hating these animals that they’re losing sight of the actual tragedy that occurred. All the comments on the local news page sights are people fighting about how I should hate all these dogs for the deeds of a few not one (other than supporters like yourself) has even offered their condolences. They’ve lost sight of the bigger picture. My daughter has to grow up without a mother now. I lost the girl I was gonna marry and all they think about is spewing their hatred for the breed.”

By no means does he or other family members  feel that the owner should  get off the hook for this tragedy either.
” Yes I feel the owners should be charged there is a difference in training your dog to protect without doing bodily harm”,  Michelle (Aunt Shell)  explains and Matt agrees, “I’m angry about it. I feel if they were gonna teach a dog to protect they should have done more to keep something like this from happening.”

Matt doesn’t know what the future holds because for the moment,  their family is still in shock at the tragic event that snuffed out such a bright and warm light in their lives. Sadly, with the media exposure, it has caught the attention of Colleen Lynn, founder of Dogsbite.org and her fellow group members who have started their ruthless verbal attack on the family, even to the point of accusing Matt of making up the tragedy.

image

image

Even Colleen Lynn, founder of Dogsbite.org labeling the grieving man a “Super Nutter” because he refuses to blame the multiple breeds that get labeled pit bull.

image

The grieving family of Becca are shocked by the hateful messages and comments. Michelle (Aunt Shell) shares, “My niece is asking for everyone to please stop being so nasty about my nieces death. She has three young sisters and a daughter that do not deserve to see rude mean marks about Becca”.

image

“If I could tell her one thing, I would tell her I’m sorry for not being there to protect her when she needed me I’d tell her if i could go back I would have never let her leave and would trade her places if I could. I’d tell her things will never be the same without her and I value every moment I did have with her now more than ever.”

Funeral arrangements are still being set up and the family has a gofundme set up to help with costs.

Eight People

It’s no secret that there is battle being waged in Hastings Michigan about Michigan Senate Bill No. 239, but is it being fought for and against by Hastings Michigan residents?

Michigan Senate Bill No. 239:

“A bill to prohibit a local unit of government from enacting an   ordinance or rule that regulates a dog based solely on breed,   perceived breed, or type; and to provide for the powers and duties   of certain local governmental entities. “

According to released documents, the answer is glaring: the majority of those fighting against this bill are from outside the state.

image

Daxton’s Friends, anti Pit bull/Pro BSL/ PETA supporter non-profit with board members from Wisconsin,  California and multiple other states EXCEPT for Michigan.

What’s interesting that the 8 letters  written to the council:

“Prior to Monday’s meeting, eight people sent emails to the city, asking the council to reconsider amending the dangerous-dog ordinance to remove the breed-specific language.”

Who are the Hastings Michigan residents that wrote those letters?

image

Not one single Hastings Michigan resident.

image

Texas, British Columbia….

image

Washington, Missouri…

image

California and Grand Rapids Michigan, yet Mary Belafonte is really Joanie Caldwell…
image

Minnesota, Washington…

I wonder what the people of Hastings Michigan have to say about some hate mongers from different states and cities attempting to influence laws that would affect their community?
