I also tried to take the survey and got the same "Thanks for taking the Survey" so whatsRead More the deal? I was almost afraid to take this survey thinking it may lead to untimely deaths of unwanted dogs. I own one of this little mighty dogs and years ago said I would never have one, but here I am with my heart wound around her she is my best friend and goes with me all the time, but I do agree they are not for small children (in general) are a one person dog (most of the time) and need the same amount of care both medically and attention wise, information should be available as to the cost of supporting an animal prior to its adoption, along with general information of the breed. Stop trying to breed down the size of animals all it does is to bring out genetic problems that hurt the future breed. Thanks

Thanks, Frank. I don't mean to sugarcoat the Chihuahua problem at all. This latest column wasRead More intentionally light because the subject was "birthday parties." We have written anzd spoken about Chihuahuas many times. And backyard breeding is a significant factor. Still, we have a difficult time seeing how dollars spent on additional enforcement will be more impactful than the incentives we have planned. Consider this: in the six years we've offered free spay/neuter surgeries to targeted communities, we've averaged almost 1,000 surgeries per year. If we had devoted the same dollars and resources to enforcement or legislation, I don't think our efforts would have come close to matching this and would likely have been difficult to measure. That said, we routinely look at many approaches to this serious issue. Again, thank for taking the time to write. -- Scott

Hey, I'm a bit out of your area but wonder if anyone is following up on the fate of the dog thatRead More belongs to the woman arrested for stabbing the guy in the lot behind Safeway. All articles mention that she was living In a van with her dog. In most cases of arrest the vehicle is impounded...often resulting in the owner not being able to retrieve it due to impound costs. But worse yet, what about her dog? Can someone in HMB follow up on this, or perhaps your heroes have already done so!!! Thanks!!!!

There should be no problem with having your dog off leash in an open space, like a field or largeRead More area at the beach with no one around to distract you or the dog. However it is courteous to put your dog on its leash and it a lie down position when others walk by with or without a dog that look uneasy. I have a white boxer, which is easily mistaken for a pitt bull or american bulldog and he loves to socialize, but only when the feeling is mutual with the other animal and owner. My large breed dog has been attacked or ran up on by a small dog and bit in the face or on the legs plenty of times. Animals are creatures of habbit and are scared just as much as their owners are. The more relaxed at at ease you are around your pet and re-assure them that they are alright, the better we will all be. People need to get a grip on reality. It is a BIG world and there are TONS of people with pets out there...just be courteous and respectful, do not be a jerk and act like a victim. Small dogs are just as dangerous as large dogs as well as being intimidated...it has nothing to do with the animals size, but it has everything to do with the animals intent.
