Marilyn and Willard Cameron were caught up in the evil world of BSL here in rural Nova Scotia - but they loved their dog Zeus so much that they refused to give in to the tyrants that had thought up the stupid legislation that targets dogs and not the responsible agents - irresonsible owners. They knew their dog Zeus was a good dog and had never hurt anyone - nor would he ever.
So they fought a good and long battle - and they won their fight against the BSL in their district of the municipality of Guysborough, Nova Scotia - and showed the rest of Canada - that if you fight against stupid legislation - the battle can be won.
Zeus was an old dog when their battle started - and he was even older when they won, and yesterday - he died. In the home he had lived his life in - which is what EVERYBODY was fighting for. Yesterday Zeus went to heaven to wait for Marilyn and Willard not knowing that they changed the world for him. But he does know that he was able to die where he belonged - in his home.
And if the people who believe in BSL had gotten their way - that wouldn't have happened. Shame on them. May Zeus have a nice journey now, wherever he is.
These are a couple photos I took of Zeus that appeared in Dogs in Canada Magazine when the Cameron's won their court case - I've also got a small photo album of them at http://dogkisser.ca/ZeusandSandy/index.html
