Hi my dearest friends,

The picture below is of some of my dearest dachsie friends, that you have all seen on my blog at some time or another. They were all rescued by DROH, just like me, and found their forever homes thanks to people who love and care for dogs.

But not all dogs are so lucky. Mommy went over to Jan's Funny Farm blog at to thank Jan for the kind words she said about me and got the shock of her life. The post she saw was dated 05/01/10. It was too horrible to believe what she read and the video she watched. The thought of what we saw was too awful and it still haunts Mommy, so she has decided to tell you what she saw and beg for your help, because if Mommy didn't know things like this happened, maybe your pawrents don't either.

Mommy here.....I will be giving you a link to a video about the practice of using Gas Chambers to kill shelter dogs.


On Jan's blog there is a plea to help ban the use of gas chambers on dogs. Please go to Jan's blog and read what she posted, all the details are there with the links to the video and a petition that needs to be signed by all of us parents. I am not good a explaining these kind of things, when I am so uposet. I had cried enough for one day and it was too much to bear. I never dreamed that some dogs were being killed this way. Has Hitler returned? I am so ashamed that some places in Texas are doing this, like Gatland, Texas, where the petition is targeted.

Here is the link to the petition:

Here is the link to the video:

Mona here..........Please, Please, have your pawrents share this information with everybody who you think loves dogs as much as they do. "This could have happend to one of us!"

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.........Mona and the Mommy, Sarah
