Love at First Sight: K9s Online

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

- Roger Caras -


12,000 animals come through the doors of the Humane Society of Utah every year, all of which are in need of a new and loving home. Help has come in the form of an unlikely team member, a photographer who is working wonders at uniting man and his best friend. Guinnevere Shuster's "photo booth" style portraits do a much better job of capturing the personalities of the dogs than standard snapshots, resulting in over 90% of the dogs finding their forever homes. { read more }

Some Words of Caution For All This Independence Day, July 4th, 2015

US officials warn of Islamic State July 4 attacks‏


“It will be big. We will hit the kuffar (unbelievers) hard InshAllah.” Not that this has anything to do with Islam, as everyone from Obama to Cameron to Tony Abbott tell us. Can the West survive this refusal to face reality?
“US Officials Warn of ISIS Attacks on July 4,” by Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu, Jewish Press, June 27, 2015 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
 American police forces from coast to coast are on alert from federal officials that the Islamic State (ISIS) is planning to terrorize the country during the July 4 Independence Day holiday.

Editor's note; While we are on this subject those that are planning on shooting off "Fireworks", Please be respectful of our Veterans, Pets, and Wildlife.  For some of Our Veterans, the loud booms are a reminder of the War experiences that have left them scarred with PTSD.  Shooting fireworks off before and after the Holiday is not necessary.  Your home  and  wildlife might be 'unsettled' also.  Just be considerate and have a safe celebration.  Thank You.
 Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

CA Residents Protest Puppycide [Exclusive Video]‏

Hollywood, CA—The makers of PUPPYCIDE: The Documentary released exclusive video today of a puppycide protest in Hawthorne, CA.

The filmmakers plan to release new footage every week to raise awareness of police officers unnecessarily shooting dogs.

From the moment they meet and seal their emotional bonds to the excruciating trauma of loss, it follows the dog owners' battles for justice with police culture and the legal system, both of which treat puppycides as acceptable collateral damage.

Director Michael Ozias and Producer Patrick Reasonover are available for interviews. To schedule, please email or call (404) 805-4793.

Over the past three years, more than 5,000,000 people have viewed videos and web series produced by Ozymandias Media. These 80 works, be they documentary, animation, or narrative short, all have one thing in common: a mix of story and message.

Puppycide Doc Seeks to End National Tragedy

Puppycide Doc Seeks to End National Tragedy

Hollywood, CA—Every 98 minutes a dog is shot by law enforcement. A new documentary from Ozymandias Media seeks to end this tragedy by bringing national attention to the issue
PUPPYCIDE is a feature length documentary that takes a journey with victims of puppycide, the dogs and their owners. From the moment they meet and seal their emotional bonds to the excruciating trauma of loss, we follow the dog owners' battles for justice with police culture and the legal system, both of which treat puppycides as acceptable collateral damage.
"We all love our dogs. To us, they are family. But law enforcement is treating them as a threat and shooting them with startling, and increasing frequency,” said Michael Ozias, director of PUPPYCIDE. “If more people know about this they will demand solutions. That is the power of a documentary and the reason we feel this film is so important."
The directors are turning to Kickstarter to fund the documentary and grow a grassroots movement to end puppycide. Kickstarter is the world’s largest crowdfunding website.
“We believe in the power of film to reveal emotional truths, to take an audience on a journey that delivers them to a new place where they see the world differently," said Patrick Reasonover, producer. "By putting our production experience into PUPPYCIDE, we believe that we can make a difference for millions of people and animals.”
Director Michael Ozias and Producer Patrick Reasonover are available for interviews. To schedule, please email or call (404) 805-4793.

Damned PIGS!!!; WND EXCLUSIVE GRAPHIC: Outrage erupts over cops killing dogs 'The police officer, he just came up and started shooting'

By: Gina Loudon
 People across the country are upset with a police officer from Hawthorne, Calif., after a video of him shooting a Rottweiler went viral.
So much so, that 113,000 have signed a petition calling for his resignation.
WND has reported on cases of police brutality, constitutional infringement, corruption and the militarization of police.
The response to the Hawthorne case, in which police shot an innocent bystander’s Rottweiler as officers arrested the man for recording another arrest, appears to take concern over police actions to a new level.
Police were arresting the man “taking video” of an arrest that he witnessed as he was walking his dog. Another bystander got the arrest and the dog shooting on camera and uploaded it to YouTube and set off a firestorm.
The video has been viewed over 5 million times and has prompted angry citizens to gather signatures that were delivered to Hawthorne Police in conjunction with a rally July 27.
Rally organizer Kari Guerrero told WND that she delivered just under 113,000 signatures of upset people from the U.S. and around the world to the department that day.
But the Hawthorne shooting is not an isolated incident.
In Leander, Texas, a family dog was shot and killed when police raided the wrong home in search of a man with an expired vehicle registration.
A 6-year-old witnessed the incident, prompting questions about both policy and practice for officers shooting dogs.
Retraining is one response by police departments, including in the Denver area after officers shot families’ pets.
Few would argue that police officers have every right to fire on a vicious dog if their life is threatened. But many of the cases appear to be “shoot first, ask questions later.”
In Houston, Texas, alone, at least 228 dogs have been shot by police and deputies since 2010. Putting that number beside Houston’s murder rate of 200 per year makes it even more startling.
There are now hundreds of social media sites dedicated to decreasing these deaths across the country.
Family pets including German shepherds, golden retrievers, Australian shepherds, pit bulls, chihuahuas, and others have been shot – in many cases in front of children. A news According to a Memphis news report, a Labrador retriever was shot by a police officer while the owner and child were playing with it outside.
“The police officer, he just came up and started shooting at my dog,” the upset 9-year-old child told reporters.
The Denver area, too, has seen several instances of officers shooting family pets.
In an interview with WND, Sgt. Robert Sanchez, an officer in San Diego, told his story of shooting a dog. He said he shot the dog because it was attacking a little girl and there was no other way to subdue the animal. He said there have been less than a dozen shootings by police this year in San Diego, but he couldn’t speak for the rest of the state.
Official stats show that San Diego County reported fewer than 10 dogs shot by officers each of the past three years.
When asked why police don’t carry equipment to deal with dogs such as a baton, mace or tranquilizer gun, Sanchez stressed that carrying extra equipment to deal with dogs would take the focus off of dealing with criminals and put it on animals, which is not the job of a police officer.
He explained that it is already a big burden for officers to load their vehicles with all the equipment they might need in the line of duty. To load another gun or mace would burden the officers, he said.
Another consideration is the potential of a lawsuit against an officer if he misses his target.
“What would happen if I accidentally shot a person with a tranquilizer dart?” he asked.
In states such as California, police are subject to greater scrutiny in the courts, and the fear of injuring a person and being sued is greater.
Sanchez said he tries to call animal control because it is better trained to deal with dogs. But he acknowledged the problem of dogs getting caught in the crossfire and the pressure from the public to find a way to deal with it.
The San Diego City Police Department’s policy is to contact animal control for assistance when there is advance notice of a potentially dangerous dog. Some officers, like K-9 and narcotics units, carry catch poles. But the equipment is cumbersome for the few officers who carry it, and usually the only equipment the officer has at his fingertips to deal with the animal is his sidearm.
A Harris County, Texas, police spokesman told WND that animal control is only called in cases of a dog bite, and officers do not carry specific equipment to handle dogs.
Residents of Harris County, which encompasses Houston, put in 4,100 dangerous animal calls to the sheriff’s department in the past two years. In 58 cases, officers shot and killed dogs.
In an interview with Houston’s KHOU-TV, Sgt. Joseph Guerra said that training is the answer.
“A lot of times, officers are not sent to training to get that type of certification to feel comfortable enough to deal with these animals,” said Guerra.
The Houston Humane Society employs Guerra and other law enforcement officers as full-time investigators. Guerra investigates animal cruelty and neglect, and teaches police how to safely interact with potentially dangerous animals.
“It’s enough for you to back up slowly and exit the gate and make that phone call to the owner and have them put that dog up,” explained Guerra.
Guerra is pushing for mandatory training for officers. KHOU reports that Houston Police do not require such lessons, and a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office told WND that it offers training but does not require it.
Video of the Hawthorne case is below, but viewers are advised it is graphic:

Animal Lovers Unite; BDN: Topsham man accused of attacking dog in front of children

By Darcie Moore, Times Record

TOPSHAM, Maine — Topsham police charged a man with cruelty to animals after he allegedly threw a dog across a room the day after Christmas.
Topsham police Lt. Fred Dunn said the incident, reported at 7:25 p.m. on Dec. 26, prompted police to issue a summons for cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia to Johnathan Aday, 28, who was staying with an ex-girlfriend at 20 Harmony Hill.
Aday allegedly came home to the residence, had been drinking and found the dog had got out of its kennel and chewed some pictures in the trailer, police said. Aday became upset and picked up the dog and threw it, in front of two children, Dunn said. The dog hit a metal crate and bent it. Aday then allegedly hit the dog in the head and threw the dog against the wall and kicked the dog’s head and body. Dunn estimated the dog weighed around 50 pounds.
The dog did not appear injured, according to the responding officer.

  • Lynne Karst 3 hours ago

    I hope the dog was removed from the home and notes were made to keep an eye out for possible abuse towards the children

  • ilikecoffee 2 hours ago

    And we euthanize innocent animals everyday just because they don't have homes or are sick. Why are people like this allowed to be here?............. Rott in He!!, you disgusting piece of crap!

  • Louisa Golden 2 hours ago

    Abusing an animal in the presence of the children IS child abuse. It is damaging to see a parent that out of control. Further, violence against pets or even property often implies a threat against the witness to the violence. Better not make me angry, kids, or this will happen to you!

  • tjones4 2 hours ago

    People like this are not worthy of living in this world.

  • If you believe it 2 hours ago

    The dog did not "appear injured," according to the responding officer. for the officer, he needs to rethink that statement!! begs the question, what would he do, had it been a child who did something naughty?

    Too bad the dog wasn't a breed that could/would fight back.

    Like the Topsham police are trained in Animal Injuries. Why isn't the name of the responding officer released. GD thin BLUE LINE code of Silence. At the least the dog should have been evaluated by a Veterinarian. Does the COP also Work for Lisbon Police on the side by chance?
    I hope this outrages people to see what is really going on. Animal Cruelty and a friggin cop does nothing,, or is BDN omitting more facts?

Larry Fillmore a few seconds ago

It is a shame this behavior goes on in front of children. Not only is this tramatic for the children but what message does it send to the kids. The responding police officer did not force the animal to be seen by a vet since the police officer is not trained in animal medicine. So what message does this send to the kids: Police do not care about abuse to their pets. Also, the message is clear animal cruelity is acceptable in Topsham and it is OK for the kids to abuse animals too. The police officer involved needs to find a different profession.

What's the matter Lisbon Residents think this is too good for your kind?

Cop blows away family dog 'for no good reason'
Imagine you're sitting at home, and you hear a series of gunshots.

Then you look out your window and see your own dog riddled with bullets, all at the hand of a police officer who neighbors say was not threatened by the pet.

You've got to see what happened to this one devastated family.

Don't care which you are, this is funny...

A pretty little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home.
Next to her was a basket containing a number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing

Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her.
Out of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man.

"Hi there little girl, I'm President Obama.
What do you have in the basket?" he asked.

"Kittens," little Suzy said.

"How old are they?" asked Obama.

Suzy replied, "They're so young, their eyes aren't even open yet."

"And what kind of kittens are they?" 
"Democrats," answered Suzy with a smile.

Obama was delighted. As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens.


Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men agreed that the president should return the next day;
and in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk with her basket of "FREE KITTENS," when another motorcade pulled up,
this time followed by vans from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.

Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy.

"Hello, again," he said, "I'd love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."

"Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're Republicans."

Taken by surprise, the president stammered, "But...but...yesterday, you told me they were DEMOCRATS." 

Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know.

But today, they have their eyes open."
