Thank You, President Obama & H.S.U.S!

December 11, 2010

Hey, fellow DGN readers!

The Dog-Gone News editors want to personally thank President Obama and the Humane Society of the US (HSUS) for prohibiting Animal Crush Videos! For our readers that don’t know what a ‘crush video’ is, it is a disturbing video which intentionally shows the torture (e.i., crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating,  impaling) of puppies and kittens or any other living animal for the satisfaction of their viewers. These disconcerting videos often show graphical features in which the animal is tortured and often bled to death. These horrifying videos needed to be stopped.

Dec. 9, 2010- The Humane Society of the United States lauded President Obama for signing into law H.R. 5566, the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010

for more information, go to: http://www.humanesociety.org/news/press_releases/2010/12/crush_bill_signed_120910.html

Thank you!,

The Dog-gone News

Guide Dog Saves Owner In 9/11

September 12, 2010

On September 11, 2001, one blind man and his dog were trapped on the 78th floor of Tower One, New York.

Michael Hingson, victim of the 9/11 accident, was with his guide dog, Roselle during the accident. They both endured 78 flights of stairs, but when they exited the building, their lives were still in danger.

They had to literally run for their lives to escape the falling tower.

“She did exactly what she was supposed to do to keep us running and avoiding other people,” he said. “Because everyone was running in sheer terror and panic.”

Roselle, you are truly a hero.

Hello, Dog-gone News readers! The Dog-gone News would like to honor everyone in the 9/11 accident at the World Trade Center, New York.The horrible accident took place on September 11, 2001. People hijacked several planes, planning to crash them into several buildings. The locations included the Twin Towers in New york and the Pentagon, just outside of Washington D.C. The forth plane crashed into a field after brave passengers fought to take control of the plane.

This day will never be forgotten, nor will the brave service men, women and passengers of the four planes, and also the men and women that were injured and killed in this accident. The Dog-gone News thanks all of the brave servicemen and women that were involved in this accident!
