Happy Thanksgiving, Canucks!

Well, it's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and this blogger is hanging out with family in Connecticut, so I'll keep this one short.

Last night, PA - the "puppy mill capital of the east" - finally signed a bill calling for larger cages, exercise requirements and annual vet check-ups in order to crack down on their puppy mills. They're also giving more power to people in a position to help these dogs and making it so that only vets can euthanize dogs at commercial kennels, meaning (hopefully) no more needless shootings when the dogs suddenly become inconvenient.

This is great! Here's hoping the new laws really make a difference and help wipe out the state's reputation. I'm off to celebrate with another piece of pie, and I'll return soon!

Happy Thanksgiving! This is good news to hear. Hope it makes a difference, but it's certainly a step in the right direction.
