Today we'd like to share a video of Tamara Thayne from Dogs Deserve Better, who chained herself to a doghouse on the capitol steps for 35 days in an ongoing attempt to get the Pennsylvania law changed regarding dogs who live their lives on the end of a chain. This woman has been dedicated and courageous in her fight to free chained dogs from a life of loneliness, extreme weather, boredom, abandonment, untreated health issues, and often dehydration/starvation.

Is there some way you can help with Operation Fido Freedom? Yes, if you live in Pennsylvania, you can encourage your Senator or Representative to vote for SB1435 to limit chaining.
Dogs do deserve better than a life sentence on a chain. You can read more here. You can follow @tamirathayne on Twitter. And/or you can Like "Operation Fido's Freedom's page on Facebook.
On a personal note, water is still merrily running ... somewhere. Two city employees came out yesterday and they couldn't find any signs of a water leak under the lawn either. The good news is that Jan learned we have "only" lost 6000+ gallons of water since 9/22 instead of hundreds of thousands of gallons (that does happen but she was reading the numbers wrong - how was she to know since nothing matched?), so she splurged and took a shower this morning. She offered each of us one but we all turned her down. It's still a bad leak and the landlord is trying to get hold of a plumber, but Jan's breathing better today. And she never intends to stick her hand down that meter hole again. She wouldn't even put the cover back on after seeing that black widow spider coming at her yesterday. And the guys said they've also found snakes in those holes.
Oh, we almost forgot to include this. We are excited to win a can of Clean+Green in Sol's The Messy Mancat Monday Giveaway. We love their product and can't buy it in this area. The Taylor CatSSSSS and Brian also won a can.
Have a purring and tail wagging day.
