The Virginia State Attorney General ruled in October 2006 that publicly funded animal shelters may not euthanize animals based purely on their breed. In other words, animals need to be assessed individually for their temperment. But Loudoun County has continued to euthanize pit bulls and "mixes" rather than doing any assessments. And now they are seeking public support to continue violating the law. They are asking for public opinion on their website. Feel free to share your thoughts with them.

GOA will be publishing a Turkish edition of The Dogs Who Found Me in 2008! This is the first translation deal, as far as I know. And it is interesting that Turkey would be the first, particularly since I have received fan mail from the UK, South American, Asia and elsewhere. Hopefully some others will follow suit. A Spanish translation would be wonderful!
