Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

San Francisco City Gov Bans Pet Fish? Hello?

First the bay city decided we American’s just shouldn’t be able to decide matters such as circumcision.

We shouldn’t have to worry about decisions like that since we have a brilliant and all knowing government to think for us.

Now San Francisco is taking things a step further by possibly relieving the American’s that live within its limits of the terrible right to purchase a pet goldfish.

San Francisco’s Animal Control and Welfare Commission is recommending that the City ban the sale of goldfish, tropical fish and guppies in its borders, according to Matier and Ross.

The recommendation to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is part of the commission’s ongoing efforts to discourage “impulse buys” of animals.

The commission’s ban would cover pet stores and breeders in the City. It comes after more than a year of study and findings that aquarium fish are often mass bred under inhumane conditions or stripped from the wild.

It almost seems as if these idiots read Atlas Shrugs and instead of learning lessons from it, they got ideas.

I mean, San Francisco has managed to chase off most parents with children, cutting off future generations of workers, business and tax dollars. They kicked a medical industry to the curb and now Pet Smart and many other pet stores are likely to notice little value of sticking around.

Good going liberals… way to succeed as a city.

Some of 2008’s Oddest Pet Stories


Penelope, a Lhasatese (Maltese Llhasa designer breed dog) is the ‘daughter’ of Dr. Margaret LaManna and attorney Manny Levin, who live in West Palm Beach. ‘I take her everyplace here, especially shops,’ says Margaret LaManna. ‘People ooh and ahh because she’s totally cute.’

While you were summering on the island, or the Hamptons or Newport, etc., elsewhere throughout the world strange stories were being reported about four-legged creatures — and their weirder two-legged owners.

For example, I found a news story about a man in California who claimed his dog was a victim of a “hate crime” when it was attacked by a cat. It would have been laughable except he called in some legal beagles and sued for $1.5 million.

Then there was the report of the 4-year-old Pennsylvania boy who ended up in the doghouse for frequently meowing at his hated cat-loving neighbor. And if his arrest for harassment over that seemed strange, it was no odder than the story in Northern Florida about someone arrested on animal-cruelty charges for cursing at a police dog in a squad car.

America hardly had a monopoly on pet weirdness. How about the woman in China who tried to get her poodle to drive? The police stopped her care when they saw a dog whose front legs were wrapped around the steering wheel. It turned out his back legs were on his owner’s lap, and she was controlling the foot pedals, trying to “teach” the dog to drive.

The English can often be counted on for eccentricity, and they didn’t disappoint when they came up with a Web site called http://www.marryyourpet.com.

Is this for real? Hard to tell, since the site reads: “So go on, if you really love him and you’re in this for life, isn’t it time you married your pet?”

But if you’re serious about getting serious with your furry one, before you go ahead with your pup-tials, heed their warning: “Please note that by marrying your pet, he/she may entitled to half your house and all your income.”

Those of you who were in New York know that the bizarre pet story of the summer was a “catricide.” The fur flew when a 205-pound ex-baseball player kicked his girlfriend’s 7-pound cat, named Norman, in a moment of rage — and then claimed he murdered the cat in self-defense.

Other strange cat news out of New York: A school was to teach owners to “think like a cat.” The courses, held at the “Meow Mix Academy,” even included scratching workshops.

Strange pet happenings weren’t limited to dogs and cats. In England, it was reported that some parrots could become suicidal and were being treated with liquid Prozac.

An even stranger story came from Australia where a study proved that goldfish can remember “complex concepts” for days.

But the winner for wild pet stories is Singapore, where some people are taught on the Internet how to remotely pet and dress their chickens. It seems that some farmers in Asia make pets out of chickens, outfit them with special dresses … oh the heck with it. You wouldn’t believe it if I explained it!
