Losing sleep over media headlines and oppressive heat waves has its advantages. In digging around the
Net, it seems that Responsible Owner materials offered in Spanish are either hard to find or sorta preachy, so I updated our Great Owners = Great Dogs poster in hopes that it helps makes a difference to somebody. The blurb
in red reads:
that live on chains can become frustrated and dangerous. Do not allow children near dogs that live on chains.
A rather tepid warning perhaps, considering the Texas sized tragedy suffered last week. Please, rev up your printer and use this poster to educate. Get the letter page sized PDF here and mass produce it at Kinko's. Or order the larger 11x17 version here. Send a few to every animal shelter, school, library, day care, etc you can think of - Wherever dog owners with children might get their hands on it. Hec, send it to the media along with this print out. Maybe they'd do something brilliant, like, uhh -- educate.
(By the way, great hand out from HSUS. I have to guess that Adam Goldfarb had something to do with writing that.)
The updated English version of Great Owners will be available shortly. If you'd like this in a large 30x44 sized vinyl banner with grommets, please let me know and we'll help you get one for about fifty bucks.
