A Call to action for Buddy
He lived his life completely alone. His owner had moved away from the house he was living in - moved in with his daughter - so he didn't have anyone living with him at all - no one feeding him or giving him water - kind strangers did that. One man came everyday and fed him for 7 years, no matter what the weather. His owners never did that for him.
And last night Buddy died.
He never experienced what it was like to live inside, to have a dog bed, to eat in a kitchen, to lay on a couch, to hear a kind word, to be inside from the weather.
To have someone care enough to check to see whether he's sick or in pain.
This is a dog in Nova Scotia, Canada under our current legislation.
This dog lived in Jamie Baillie's riding and he has said "we need to work on changes to end cruel tethering"
We need to start holding our legislators to what they say.
