Αν παρατηρηθεί και από εσάς ότι ο τίτλος “5ος διαγωνισμός για Καλό Καλοκαίρι: Κερδίστε έναν οδηγό ή ένα ονυχοδρόμιο απο το Pet Shop Snoopy” εμφανίζεται σε άσχετες αναρτήσεις, οφείλεται σε κάποιο πρόβλημα (υποθέτω) του Blogspot και γι’ αυτό όταν ανέβασα αυτή την ανάρτηση μου άλλαξε μερικούς τίτλους από παλαιότερες αναρτήσεις.
Κοιτάζω να τα διορθώσω ένα ένα...

Ευχαριστώ για τη κατανόηση σας.

PostHeaderIcon Opinion: Dangerous Dogs and The Slippery Slope of Labelling

Eight years ago, a Siberian Husky in Texas chased a duck into a pond. A neighbor complained to the city of Plano, and to this day Sasha continues to live under court imposed restrictions reserved for truly dangerous dogs.

......

When I wrote those words in November, Chris Dunn had just filed a lawsuit against the city of Plano in order to clear Sasha’s name and have the dangerous label discarded. The city maintained that it was necessary for Dunn to line his property with dangerous dog signs in order to keep citizens safe, and Dunn was eventually cited for not having enough signs in place.

Fast forward to yesterday. Dunn had his day in court, and the outcome is disappointing. Dallasnews.com reported that Dunn lost his bid to have Sasha removed from Plano’s dangerous dog list, and was fined $200 for not having sufficient signage posted on his property.

$200 for not protecting his neighbors from his duck chasing dog.

Obviously, Sasha is not a dangerous dog, and as frustrating and inappropriate as the label may be, it’s the city’s policy that has this blogger’s hackles up: once declared dangerous, there are no provisions for having a dog reevaluated or removed from the list. Dogs unfairly branded have no defense or protection. And Plano has no plans to do anything about it.

Labeled for life, Sasha will live out her days with her devoted and defeated owner, unaware of the controversy that surrounds her, and blissfully unaware of the fact that in my opinion, Plano, Texas is not worthy of having her.
