Sasha's News Report and a contest for tongues

Hi my pals, its me Sashy guarding my toys from the thieves that are coming to take our candy. This is an older photo of me, so I haven't yet given in on the flashy beast protest. Mommy and I agreed to using an older photo for now. I think I almost have her broken down to my demands. We are all lucky pets that have found forever homes. There are lots and lots of other pets out there(I can't stand to think about it) that don't have homes and may be in danger. Mommy came across this article and thought it was important, so we are posting it. It is hard to think that these horrible things are being done, but we need to know, so we can try to put an end to it.

"Dear Animal Advocates,
The federal Pet Safety and Protection Act would prohibit Class B Dealers and unlicensed individuals from selling dogs and cats to research laboratories. Class B Dealers are people who collect dogs and cats to sell to the research industry. They sometimes obtain their animals through illegal or unethical means, such as by responding to “free to good home” ads in newspapers, falsifying records to keep the true origins of the animals unknown and stealing pets kept outside in yards. They also buy animals in bulk from “bunchers,” whose methods are even more questionable. Eliminating Class B Dealers will also take away the profit motive of bunchers, providing a much-needed safety net to ensure beloved pets are not stolen or acquired under false pretenses and sold to facilities that test on animals.
What You Can DoVisit the ASPCA Advocacy Center Online to email your U.S. senators and representative urging them to support and cosponsor the Pet Safety and Protection Act. You may use the same link to read about this legislation in greater depth. Thank you for supporting the ASPCA and America’s animals. "
Thanks for reading it my pals, please have your humans do the right thing.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hi Sasha! We've just come in from playing in the deep deep snow, and we wanted to stop by and say "Thanks for visiting our blog" and "It's VERY nice to meet you!" We love our friends, and it makes us happy that we've met you!

Hi Sasha, I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Mom has been "busy" or so she says. I always try to comment on all your posts cause I luv ya so much but I'm so behind right now I can't comment on them all. Rest assured, I have read them all. Have you gotten all your toys hidden? I sure hope so. Did your Mom make that jack-o=lantern? I like it. Thanks for that info today. I will be checking it out. I hope you win the tongue contest!

I have been wondering how your daddy is? Give him some extra kisses from me....and you can give some to your mom too! I've missed you so much. I have got to have a talk with Mom about her extracurricular activities.

Oskar said...

Thank you for letting us read that terrible story!

I'm off to vote for you for the best tongue contest!!
