Here again, I feel that all dogs should go through the CGC ( Canine Good Citizen ) and be rewarded by a cut in local registration costs....this is a simple test, costing little, that is required before a dog can get their TDI (Therapy Dog International ) or the equalivant. Dogs that can't pass this test need training . It is the owner, not the breed. If it is the dog, then it's poor breeding and the dog is dangerous.

Okay, here's what I've got. The first one is for little Maria, the second one is for the mayor. Edit as you see fit. As I understand it, here's the steps:
1. Print out 2 separate letters, one to Maria and one to Mayor Wells. Sign the bottoms and date the tops.
2. Personalize the letters with anything you like for Maria or the Mayor.
3. Send to Saje, who will collect them and ship them off to their ultimate destinations.

********
Dear Maria,

I read about your letter to Mayor Wells. I think getting owners to pass a test before they can own a “high risk” dog is a wonderful idea! It would do a world of good for the misunderstood dog breeds to be restricted to owners who could prove that they could be responsible. You’ve done a wonderful thing for the dogs, and I know they would all thank you if they could!

Sincerely,




**************
Dear Mayor Wells,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering the concept proposed by Maria Halleran, concerning the licensing of prospective owners of “high risk” dog breeds. I believe strongly in responsible dog ownership for the life of the dog. Careless owners don’t just put their dogs at risk, they put the community at risk. Too many dogs lose their happiness, health, homes, and lives when an owner doesn’t devote the time and resources to making sure their dog is a safe, positive animal.

I understand the logistical problems associated with the proposal, but I hope to see that such a process is implemented for the benefit of all, human and canine alike. I support and admire your efforts to create a community educated in the responsibilities and rewards of conscientious dog ownership.

Sincerely,



***********

Excellent. I'm going to start a new thread about this and I think that everyone should post it on other pet forums that they visit.

What do you want to call the deadline for everyone's letters, Saje? A month or so? Give those overseas folks time to get theirs in? Oh, and what address should we mail them to?

I'm all excited. I already printed mine out and put dog stickers all over them!

lol That's so cute. I don't mind sharing my address with people here but I do want them to pm me for it.

I'm waiting to hear back from the mayor. I probably won't before monday.

I think I'm a bit confused.....would the owners take the test before they get the dog? Or after they've had it for a while?
