Thank You and One Random Thing

Thank you to everyone who has left comments and/or written letters, blogposts (see below), tweets and FB comments calling out the bullies in Memphis and standing up for the pets at MAS.  All y’all rock and with you in their corner, the homeless pets in Memphis have hope.

For anyone in need of a random celeb distraction, I enjoyed this one about Ryan Gosling carrying his dog George through the L.A. airport.  I’ve only seen Ryan Gosling in one movie – Lars and the Real Girl – but it’s one of my all-time favorites.

  1. the KC dog blog just posted in support of you!

    and I got a comment on my blog from a woman from Memphis who is appalled, but sadly not surprised, by the actions of the city officials bullying you.

  2. As a blogger trying to shine some light on the pseudoscience that fuels the witch-hunt against feral cats, SLAPP suits are a serious concern. On the other hand, the injustice simply infuriates me.

    If there’s a silver lining, it’s this: when SLAPP suits are all the establishment has left, they’ve got to be close to losing the fight.

    These tactics are just the latest in their desperate struggle for relevance. Time for those who are more interested in protecting their jobs than the animals in their care to get out of the way—there’s important work to be done.

  3. Geez, will MAS stop at nothing? The joke’s on them though, they are only making you a martyr. ;) I love that title on Smartdog’s blog. Ahahahaha
