You'll Need a Strong Stomach for This, But it's Important

This was sent by a blog reader who wanted to comment on the vicious-breed controversy. She wrote:

"There are good and bad dogs of every breed. Personally, my breed of choice is German Shepherds, who are also on the "bad dog list" (we won't even go there!)

"But what it all boils down to are the people who take these animals and do horrific acts with and to them. After Katrina, look at the numbers of German Shepherds and other dogs that were obviously used as bait dogs in fighting.

"Again it all comes back to the fine group of people who get a thrill when they have an animal that will kill another. And unfortunately, the law pretty much turns its back on dealing with these people. Think about it - if they have such a total disregard for the life or lives of animal(s), what would happen with another human? And the ones who suffer are the breeds that serve as their "tools."'

She attached the following, which nearly made me lose my breakfast but it's a worthwhile effort that deserves attention. It's the tragic story of what happened to a Newfoundland kidnapped by sadists, and a petition in his memory:

Kahn was the beloved companion of the Bradford family of Wetumpka, Alabama. On Feb. 20th, 2004, Kahn was abducted from the Bradford home by criminals who intended to use him as a "training" dog for fighting pit bulls.

Kahn was placed in a pen and attacked, tortured and mutilated by multiple pit bulls trained to attack and kill on command by their human owners. After a long, heroic struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, Kahn was shot to death and left on the side of the road, his usefulness to these criminals at an end. Only the perpertrators of these heinous acts know to what extent Kahn suffered before they cruelly murdered him.

The Bradford family found their beloved gentle giant and family companion laying dead in the gutter, by the side of the road. Kahn was tossed aside like garbage by these sociopathic criminals who mutilated, tortured and murdered him.

Can you imagine the incredible horror and overwhelming grief you would experience if you found somone you loved gone, as a result of a situation such as this? How would you feel? What would you feel? What would you feel like doing? Rage? Anger? Incredible sadness? Incomprehension? What would you tell your son or daughter had happened to their friend and companion? Do you think those feelings would diminish when the criminals who did this received only a $400 dollar fine?

Well, sadly, that's what happened. Adding incredible insult to heinous injury for the Bradford family. The current laws of the State of Alabama classify this type of activity as a Class 'B' Misdeameanor. Any sane, law-biding citizen of our Great Nation can recognize that the criminals who carried out these heinous actions did so in a pre-meditated, cruel and wanton manner with complete disregard for anything other than fulfilling their own perverted, sociopathic desires.

In order to conduct this activity, these criminals had to:
#1.) Find a suitable dog in a pre-meditated search.
#2.) Plan to abduct and obtain the identified dog
#3.) Trespass on Private Property to abduct the animal.
#4.) Break and Enter into a secure area where the animal was restrained.
#5.) Commit theft and larceny to remove the property of the Bradfords from their private property.
#6.) Possess Pit Bull dogs previously trained to attack and kill.
#7.) Possess a previously prepared "pen" or area to place Kahn to allow the planned and pre-mediatated attack, torture, mutilation and murder of Kahn to take place.
#8.) Utilize a deadly weapon and discharge said weapon in such a manner as to cause the death of Kahn.
#9.) Dispose of Kahn's remains in a pre-meditated manner so as to effectuate a hinderance to Legal Authorities in determining the perpatrators identity and location.

All of these pre-meditated criminal activities clearly add up to what can only be charecterized as a pre-meditated criminal conspiracy and enterprise to conduct these unlawful activities. What Prosecuter, Judge and Law Enforcement Authorities would be willing co-conspirators in prosecuting this matter in a way that would culminate in a $400.00 fine?

Many people in a rural community would be predisposed to dismissing any seriousness in prosecution with a statement such as, "It's only a dog..." Criminals who engage in these types of activities are very often predisposed to the gradual escalation in the violent tendencies and behaviors these activities reinforce.

Our legal system's responsibility to our society demands significant punishments for these behaviors. Lack of punishment will only reinforce in these criminals' minds the tacit acceptance by society at large of these sociopathic and cruel behaviors.

Mr. Bradford served his country proudly for over 20 years as a member of the elite United States Navy SEALS. Is this justice in the country which he served proudly for the majority of his adult life? Are these the ideals for which Mr. Bradford and countless others have risked and sacrificed their lives for since the birth of our nation?

The antiquated laws of Alabama currently reflect a turn of the century, agricultural mindset and jurisprudence. Times have changed. Companion animals are not livestock like cattle, pigs, chicken and sheep. The incredible trauma inflicted on a family is not adequately served or protected by these antiquated laws.

This website is our first step in working to achieve JUSTICE FOR KAHN! and all our companion animals. Together, compassionate, caring people can work together and take ACTION to petition elected officials to make CHANGES TO THESE LAWS NOW! We look forward to working to achieve that goal and look forward to YOU, our compassionate friends in helping us achieve that goal.

PLEASE sign Kahn's petition, maybe his death will help the next animal from suffering his cruel fate.

Hi all
It is a good idea to start using enviromentally safe and animal friendly (non-toxic) substitutes when grooming your dog. You must groom your dog's whole body including the legs, tail and underbody if you want to do it right. You must groom certain dogs from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once, while some other animals have so much hair that it is easier to do a little at a time each day.
