It's been a long time since I've shared a thought on this blog. Lennox is an American Bulldog/Lab mix. He is papered, has been DNA tested, has been properly cared for by his loving family, and now may lose his life because of how he looks. Some dolt AC officer in Belfast decided he looked like a pit bull (pit bulls are banned in Belfast, showing government idiocy knows no bounds) and confiscated him from his family, yanking him away from the five year old girl who loves him so much. Lennox's family has been fighting for his life for over a year now and his final appeal is September 16th. Following him on Facebook with millions of other people, I pray everyday he is allowed to go home, although I fear the government will dig in especially because in this particular case they are so wrong, but like most government officials will never admit it. Because of this stupidity an innocent, well-loved family pet will lose his life and a family will lose a valuable family member. It is sad beyond words, heartbreaking and makes me want to scream at the top of my lungs at the injustice of all of this. But in support of Lennox and his family, I am posting this along with millions of others who are posting on their respective sites to spread the word and gain support for the life of this innocent dog who has now been at the hands of government officials for over a year and who knows how badly he's been treated. I'm guessing pretty badly. It is such a sad case and shows that governments can never be trusted with our lives. They have no right to do this, yet they do with an iron fist that shows there is no such thing as democracy. The Belfast City Council is pathetic and a sad statement about how governments behave all over the world. Please spread the word about Lennox. You can find him on Facebook, Twitter and attached to the title here is his web site. Justice will never be served unless Lennox is returned to his family.
