I read a blog recently which promised only one thing, irregular blogs. I like the sound of that, so am adopting it as my own. I am only really writing this time to push the ‘Ban Live Export’ movement. I turned vego at 11 once I made the connection between meat and animals and feel very strongly about animal welfare. I have attached a great article by Jane Fynes-Clinton (Courier Mail) who has recently turned veg. Worth a read as it was published just prior to the Four Corners expose on live export. I admit I didn’t watch the Four Corners programme. Just reading newspaper articles (with accompanying graphic photos) about the Indonesian abattoirs was enough to keep me awake at night. Being a total wus when it comes to seeing pain and suffering (human or animal), I am in awe of the wonderful work done by Lyn White and Animals Australia. Like many other Australians, I sent emails and letters of protest to politicians and the media. I just hope that the suspension of live export will become a total ban.

I gave the wonderful folk at Best Friends Rescue (BFR) a paws up in my last blog. I’m happy to announce my lovely and very generous publishers have decided to support BFR. With every Dog Logic sold online, Big Sky will donate $5 towards BFR. This is a real win win situation. As both Sox and Snowy are ex RSPCA pound puppies, the plight of the unwanted dog is something close to my heart. There are far too few feel good stories associated with animal welfare, but this is most definitely a positive one.
