Jon Gosselin gives back his dogs.
Stupid people get to be on TV all the time. We watch these shows with the stupid people because we can’t believe that anyone would do such stupid stuff and then go on TV and tell everyone about it. And I’m generally OK about that as long as everyone involved is a consenting adult. That means that any animal or child who can’t choose to be there shouldn’t be there. That means that there shouldn’t be any dogs used in reality TV shows or wild animals brought on talk shows or invasive nature shows where animals in their own habitat get heckled and poked by a man with a stick. So when I read about evil Jon Gosselin, who has not one quality that should make him a celebrity, giving his dogs back to the breeder he got them from because he couldn’t take care of them anymore, I became very cross. The German Shepherds never agreed to be on that show and now they don’t have homes. And of course Jon blames Kate for this. Go to radaronline.com to read the whole story so you can be cross about too.
There are three important ways you can help solve the dog over-population crisis:
1. Adopt your next dog from a shelter
2. Spay or neuter your dog
3. Commit to keeping your dog for their whole lives
I don’t know if Jon’s dogs were spayed or neutered but he broke at least two of these rules. Enough is enough. Make him go pluck his eyebrows in the privacy of his own apartment and never come out again. We’re really sick of him now.

“As most of you know, I’m a big believer in speaking up for all who suffer injustice, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or in this case, species! And I’m all for adopting from the shelter. The image I created for this print reminds me of a dog I had as kid, a mutt named Honey.” – Shepard Fairey, Artist

A Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) follow-up investigation has found that Petland stores are still supporting puppy mills, including some of the largest and most notorious in the country. The documented problems of puppy mills include: overbreeding, inbreeding, minimal veterinary care, poor quality of food and shelter, lack of human socialization, overcrowded cages and the killing of unwanted animals. The new intensive study analyzed thousands of pages of public interstate health documents in multiple states, revealing that almost every Petland store in the country is buying from puppy mills, either directly from commercial breeding facilities or indirectly through middleman brokers.
The new investigation of Petland’s puppy sources also traced shipments of puppies from out of state brokers to more than 95 percent of Petland’s domestic stores, revealing once again that the chain is supporting puppy mills. More than 80 stores were linked directly to the Hunte Corporation alone, a massive Missouri broker that resells about 80,000 puppies a year and has documented Animal Welfare Act violations.
