No Blunt Instrument Needed. Your Outcry Bowled Me Over.

I can’t believe what happened yesterday!

You are amazing!

You are amazing!

We had our highest number of visitors ever! I am heartened that you care, that you shared the message, and that you’re taking action.

We have a busy day today. A repairman is coming back to stop the windshield from whistling, and I have to make sure he stays on task. There’s a human to supervise while she mows and cleans. And then there’s naps to be taken.

All those visitors yesterday wore me out!

What are your plans for this weekend?

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. Iโ€™m a 50 something woman whoโ€™s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesnโ€™t have pets?

  1. I am glad you guys had such resounding success. I had an average day visitors-wise. You’ve been very busy – like your new look page!

  2. Rumpy, you look very cute when you sleep that way. I’m sure yesterday’s post really angered a lot of people. It is an outrage that it would be legal in Victoria Australia to allow such brutality be inflicted on an animal. There are shelters who would take the puppies if the breeder didn’t want them.
    I hope the law gets repealed.

    I’m glad we don’t live there. Perhaps it should be off the tourist route.

  3. Yesterday’s post was one of the most important messages for animal welfare, Rumpy! (Of course, all your posts are important for us though) It is us who should say thank you for letting us know the fact what’s been happening in Victoria Australia. I hope that you will have relaxing weekend!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I sent that blog to animal loving friends, who were as horrified as I was about Victoria, Australia’s attitude of hammers being a kind and humane killing method. And I always thought they were such kind people!

  7. Cute as a button Rumpy..and glad people were outraged..as a Victorian I am pretty sure we all are outraged..just were kept in the dark about this disgusting plan..emails,and contacted a current affair program fingers crossed we can start some trouble for this brutal man.

  8. That was a magnificent post yesterday Rumpy – that kind of cruelty needs to be known by anyone and everyone who loves animals and the outrage was palpable. Well done my friend…..oh – and get lotsa naps today because snoopervising humans can be VERY exhausting!

  10. Yesterday’s post definitely made me mad. I’ve been involved with protests here to have a man who beat his dog with a sledgehammer put in hail for the longest sentence possible. It amazes me that I am protesting what is an unusual and abhorrent crime here while in Australia they consider allowing puppy millers the opportunity to do it all of the time. WTH?

  11. It was a sad post yesterday, Rumpy. But important for all who love animals. We can’t change things when we close our eyes. I like the new design of your blog!

  12. It was such an impawtent post. Whee shared it everywhere whee could and Mummy told her Aunt who has told her doggy obedience group and spread it round the dog park. People are not happy about it and rightly so. Thanks for letting people know as it seems no body did!

    Hopefully this reaction will make sure this isn’t allowed. It’s just barbaric.

    Love the new blog design, very different to the other one, but still fab!

  18. Awesome, Rumpy! Your post yesterday was so important, and we are glad you touched so many readers. We’re even more glad that so many were spurred to take action, and share and speak out.

    We’re going to volunteer at PAWS today and tomorrow, clean the house, and spend some time relaxing with Moosey. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. I guess you are tired. Rumpy, you are an indefatigable advocate for your four legged friends and it is hard work. You deserve a nice nap. Some posts we don’t like to read, but we need to. Good work as usual.

  31. There is no justification for such an inhumane method to end a life. I hope they work to end such brutality and to find loving homes for animals in shelters.
