Comment policy

If I don't post your comment, don't take it too personally. I may agree with your opinion but for reasons legal and otherwise I may choose to err on the side of caution.

Please understand that if you call someone a so and so which has legal ramifications and it hasn't been proven in court, I'm going to edit or delete the comment.

Also, it would be great if comments were signed off with a name, even a fake one, just so it's easier for me and others to reply to it.

HI: I am the foster mom of Dolly's pups.
Myself and a few friends came up with their names. My friend Sheila suggested Sapper as her father was a sapper in the war.
I have attached the meaning of the word for you.
Sapper is a big boy and we just love him.
Hope this helps.
–noun a soldier employed in the construction of fortifications, trenches, or tunnels that approach or undermine enemy positions.

Hi Fred,

This isn't really a comment or anything, but I was wondering if you have ever heard of "Dog Care Wonderland"? I just got one of their flyers in the mail today and they've opened up a new location in downtown Toronto. They are a pet boutique & spa, a day care centre and training, and they have "the healthiest and happiest puppies within Toronto's GTA". They claim that they do not work with puppy mills but rather they work with breeders which sounds like a lot of bull to me. I've been trying to find out more about them but haven't had much luck. I found them on Kijiji advertising their puppies and I was horrified to see the cages that they're in. Their poor paws must get very sore!You can see for yourself:

Anyways, the reason I'm bothering you about this is because
1) you seem to be very knowledgeable about animals
2) the Dog Care Wonderland website has the Toronto Animal Services logo on it which seems to claim that they are in some way affiliated with TAS.

Give me a shout if you know anything.

Hi Sabrina, thanks for heads up on that. That place looks terrible for the dogs and as for their claim that they don't work with puppy mills, well, just by looking at the cage the puppies are in should tell you enough.


A superb story, The Prophet and the Dog. Kept me glued to every word. I love the image my mind created of the Big Dog, and my disgust with the child, children and their parents, and humanity, who is the most cruel species on Planet earth.
