Thank you all for the warm welcome. I was treated rather poorly at the other forum because of the chain of events and am looking forward to making new friends here. This place seems really "people" friendly. I am uber excited about sharing all of my puppy experiences with you all. I see a few familiar faces and I hope that is a good thing.

Animals are "thinking," "feeling," and "experiencing" beings. They have basic rights because they have the capacity to suffer. We have a duty to protect those rights.
