A VEWY SEWIOUS CAUSE,and a gweat honow

Hi all my sweet fwiends, we awe the luckiest puppies in the wowld, and we can't fowget those who awen't!!! SO PLEASE WEAD THIS CAWEFULLY!Calling all fox terrier and dog lovers!
Wire survivors in Canada need our help!

(I didn't post the pictoowe cause it made me cwy)

See that photo at right? Believe it or not, that is a wire fox terrier like me! An abused, horribly neglected wire who was one of 97 fox terriers found at a Monreal puppy mill belonging to Marc-Andre Laporte. Laporte was found guilty of two counts of animal cruelty at the St. Jerome courthouse in Montreal this week. Click here to see more photos

Almost 40 foxies had to be euthanized. The surviving dogs were cared for by the SPCA and later, with the help of devoted fox terrier lovers, found wonderful foster homes where they have been living for the past 2 years, unable to be adopted until the case is finalized. Laporte is only facing six months of jail time and up to $4,000 in fines. I find that disgusting - he should be locked in a cage forever or put to sleep - he murdered 40 dogs and abused 57 others!!

But it gets worse friends.
On Feb. 22, 2008 he will be sentenced.
And at the same hearing, the judge is to decide if Laporte is to get any of his fox terriers back!

Yeah, you read that right...get his dogs BACK! Are they insane in Canada? Are they blind? What is wrong with these people!? To even consider removing ONE wire from the safety and care of their loving foster families back to Laporte is OUTRAGEOUS!



Buster has a post on this also...Pleez help this muwdewous man never to be given the chance to do this again!!

(I pawsonally think he should be tied outside on the fweezing cold, naked with no food, and no toilet, till he wots!...but that's just my opinion)

aftew what I just said about what we should do to that hooman you might not think I desewve this.. but look what I got!

The Blog With Heart Award

Lizzy said...

That's just horrible! I don't know how anyone could do such a thing to dogs. It made me very sad to read this. :( I hope he doesn't get any back!

You look good in your space suit, Asta!

Have fun in space.

Daniella said...

Thanks dear asta for the lovely award. We will add it to our blog. Thanks for spreading the word on behalf of our cousins in Quebec.

SMoochie kisses,

Pugsley, Buster, Cricket & Daisy said...

Sassy Kat said...

Terrible, just awful! I heard about it on the tv, I just cannot believe that these things happen!!! So sad

Sassy Kat said...

I wanted to know if ya could me a favor? Tybalt has posted a nice review of the first CCSI on this blog, I don't have time to contact the members of the original cast because of having to be on the set most of the time. If you have time could you contact a few for me and spread the word??? If you are busy I understand so don't feel like ya have to.

Noah the Airedale said...

That is so upsetting. We'll be signing that petition for sure. There is truely something wrong with some people including anyone who would even consider allowing this monster to be close to any animal. We hope that pig of a man dies a horrid painful death.
Our pinkie D can't bear to look at the pictures, it's too distressing.

the many Bs said...

HI Asta, we think that story is disgusting and we agree with what should happen to that bad man. we would like to go pee pee on his feet. we had a poodle breeder in our area (Oregon - one state away) who was arrested and 25 standard poodles taken away from her about a month ago. they were neglected, two of them died, many need surgery, all had parasites, they were living in cold and filth. this is a person who has a web site and sells these dogs as champions and pets. that doesn't make sense to us that a person can love a dog enough to call it a champion, and treat it like a rat. it makes our eyes leak and our noses get all slobbery.

so we will see you at the party. we are going as cowboys cuz we like to.


pee ess - congrats on your award. you are a good doggie and you deserve it.

Gus said...

Asta, you are such a sweet little spitfire when you get mad.

But this is a good thing to be mad over.

kissies to my little activista!

ps..me n Teka will help Mommi with the pawty if you are late.

Snowball said...


We have signed the petition and Congratulations on the award.


Agatha and Archie said...

Well we signed the petition too.It makes us all scik We will put something on ours too. We can't go the Benbens party becasue Archie is aftraid to leave home Lov eA+A

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
This is terrible! How can someone even consider to give him back a single doggie! No way! I am going to sign the petition righ now!
Congratulations on your award! Big heart!
You look so ready in your space outfit! See you soon!

Juno said...

Hello Asta!! Shame, Shame...this is wrong. It makes me really sad. We need a way much tougher animal cruety law. I can not believe this guy might get his dogs back. This is absolutely not right! I will sign the petition right now!

Do you read review of CCSI at Tybalt's blog. It's a great review you might want to check out. :)
Congrats for the award. 'Blog With Heart' is so suitable for you.

Have some fun in the space!! Are you going to take some drink and cake?? :) I wish I could go with you.

Momo xoxo

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...we had seen those awful pix before on Axel's blog. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING,giving this subhuman back a living breathing animal? We wouldn't even want him to have Stuffies. We're off to Axel's blog!

You have a big Heart, Asta....and we love you. Congrats on ur richly deserved award!!!!!


Anonymous said...

OOOOOOH MY.... I followed your link to the SPCA... what I saw didn't looked like a doggie anymore...

We have had a doggie (wiebe) for 9 years from the animal shelter who looked 1/3 like these, and mommie cried when she saw him for the 1st time...

This man...I share your opinion fully, Asta!!! And he wants his dogs back??? They must forbid this man to have ONE living animal or plant in his life!!

You deserves that Blog Heart, Asta, and I am very happy again to work with you in CCSI 2.:)


Joe Stains said...

That guy makes me SO SO mad I want to mail him 36 boxes of poop! congrats on your award, you do deserve it. You are really prepared for space, all we brought were coats and a flashlight!

Stanley said...

Asta Girl!

Thanks for spreading the word. We're on our way to Axel's blog now.

The photos made my girl cry... she's spittin' mad (and you DON'T ever want to see her when she's like that). There's plenty we would like to do to this, whatever he is (we won't insult other men by calling him a man). But, we're not wasting any more time on him (except to sign the petition).

You, on the other hand, so deserve the Blog with Heart Award! You are one of the most compassionate & passionate doggies I know!

Have fun in space! I have to watch my sissy this weekend (she's still a little too young to travel outside the gravitational pull of the earth).

Goober love & smooches,

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, I remember reading about these wires on the FTN website a while ago. So terribly sad. I got J1 to sign the petition and write a letter. There is no way this terrible man should be allowed to own any animal EVER AGAIN!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

At last our human is home! What nerve of her to go off to play, leaving us without a computer.
It will take us forever to catch up on our friends's blogs!

First we want to RSVP to your party IF it isn't too late. It sounds like it will be so much fun. Can we bring some Christmas cookies and egg nog?

Sorry to hear about the poor puppies in Canada. We will head over to sign the petition right away.

Sending puurs from Italy! We missed you!

Opus and Roscoe

Amber-Mae said...

I read about this news in Buster's blog yesterday & I was very upset about it! The judge wants to give him back his badly neglected dogs to him? I think he judge is stoopid!!! And I think you're right, she's definitely blind & obviously, not an animal lover.

Congrats on your award. You totally deserve it coz I think you have a very kind heart Asta... We'll see you at the pawty!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Headgirl said...

Hi there

When I found out about this via Gussie & Axel I was livid.
Did my own post on Friday, hoping all my personal friends & family in Canada, all dog & animals lovers would act... Little Buddy for one is on the case!

We were over at Lacylulu's and thought we'd check out your page too.
What a sad story..we can't believe they would consider giving dogs back to that man. We're heading over to sign the petition when we're done here. My dog sister Rosie was a victim of cruelty before she was rescued and we adopted her, and my cat sister Jackie was also rescued from a cruelty situation and held for 8 months by the Humane Society as evidence before she could be adopted. This makes our mom want to cry too.
Hope you had a great time at the space party.
Abby (and Rosie, Jackie, Gidget and Fritz)

Daisy said...

Oh, Asta, what a heartbreaking story! I hope that man never gets to have another pet in his entire life. He does not deserve to have even a tiny ant for a pet.

Jake of Florida said...


We and Axel wrote personal messages to two dozen Canadian doggies on the DWB to ask them to sign the petition, and we've gotten great responses. They're signing and spreading the word!!


Jake and Just Harry

Randi said...

Asta - I'll have my secretary get right on it...HORRENDOUS!!!!

We'll be at the hungarian St. Nick Pawty on the 6th! Can't wait!

Love & Licks,

ps...should I bring some paprika?

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

That's an absolutely disgrace! The man is too atrocious for words. I feel so sorry for the poor doggies. It makes me cry every time I see or hear about things like this.

Good to hear that Opus and Roscoe are also coming to the party. Hope your doggie friends won't laugh at you for inviting us kitties.


Kirby said...


Oh my, that is so disturbing. Mom and I went and signed the petition right away. How could they possibly consider giving that evil man his dogs back? How unjust. I hope he gets everything that is due to him. Thanks for making sure we were all aware. You truly deserve your award!!

Your pal,

Sassy Kat said...

Hey you sweetie after you send me your autobio I'm givin ya the day off, ya have been working so hard on the set of CCSI II just relax today and have some fun.

Huskee and Hershey said...

I can't believe they are even THINKING of sending those poor dogs back to this horrid man.. What's wrong with them?? What he did to all those poor pups is just digusting and I agree with you Asta..I hope he rots in his own poo poo!!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Asta, it's really sad what happened to those doggies. I hope the people responsible for this get punished more heavily and that there are no more abuse case of animals. I hope he dont ever get to keep any animal of any kind.

ps. you look pawsome in your spacesuit

The WriggleButts said...

Oh Asta that is so horrible... I cannot believe how any human can do such a thing to any living creature. But then again we are, unfortunately, the most cruel species out there. I'm so very sorry... There is just no way to justify live animals being sold in pet shops!

Big hugs,
Ane - the WriggleButtMom

Simba said...

I blogged about this story too! I can't believe this is in my own backyard! My human dad is from Montreal!! Grrrrrrr...I hope he doesn't get them back!!


Patience-please said...

Asta, we know your Mommi is VERY busy, but our Silly Servant tagged her to share a little bit about herself. Can she borrow your blog for a little bit when she has time? You can go to our blog to check it out.

Hi Asta! I just checked the online petition link and the total # reached to 511... (When we signed it, it was 200 something.) How can we get more people to get there??? I know most of DWB members already signed the petition....

Momo xoxo

Frasier said...

Hi Asta
We signed the petition.Its horrible that such people exist.

Urban Smoothie Read said...

i'm so sad to read about it...

Ashley said...

Asta. This is a very good article because more people need to know so they can help. When I adopted Max he was only 2.5 pounds and had not been fed in nearly a week.

His owners had locked him in a dark garage and had not even checked on him. He was scared and malnourished.

Now he is very healthy and happy. I also wrote an article on this subject on my dog blog.
