Dog Owners VOTE

More and more people are deciding they've had enough with politicians meddling with their dogs and they are starting to fight back.

In Nelson, New Zealand, "dog owners have sent another strong message to the city council that they are unhappy with proposed changes to a bylaw which would restrict where and how they can walk their dogs. A group of seven dog owners with their dogs presented a 1336-signature petition to Deputy Mayor Ali Boswijk and councillor Kate Fulton outside the council chambers this morning. Last Saturday about 300 dogs and owners gathered in protest at the Church Steps in Nelson before marching down Trafalgar St to the council offices."

There's more of us than there are of them. This is why breed bans are ultimately doomed to fail. Same with insurance breed restrictions... Insurance companies are a dime a dozen, and there are good ones that aren't discriminating against innocent dogs.

Politicians that ignore the dog vote are going to find themselves kicked out of office.
