Lynn Zhou from Chongqing China

Ann Gearhart:
Trust me,in China,there are as many dog-loving people feeling the same way as you are toward this event of killing innocent dogs. If you search on China's most popular searching engine 'baidu',you will find out more than enough proofs of our indignation to this horrible slaughter. It is a pity that the govenment won't listen, but it dose not mean this contury's people do not care.
I found this blog just minutes ago,and I have sent it to many friends and bbs. We will all pray for the loss of lives on that night!Maybe I can not manage the vigil on a great scale, yet there will be candlelights, loving hearts and everything.

I post my horror at the unspeakable events in China. I hope that the materials available to us from My Dog Votes are not manufactured in China. Our symbolic outrage with the vigils is certainly a way to show how much we care about dogs- our dogs, their dogs, all dogs. But I doubt that govenment officials will be swayed by the lighting of our candles. I think the deafening silence of no $ in their econmic banks could be a more obvious way to show how much we care about dogs and their inhumane actions. In a global economy Made In China has almost become commonplace. Not for me anymore. If I can not find it from a somewhat more humane country, I do not need it. Perhaps some of you feel the same. China: not on my vacation list, shopping list or humane list. Keep the candles burning and the information coming regarding this international tragedy.
Ann Gearhart

EDITOR's NOTE: There are multitudes of loving Chinese dog owners who are as upset and outraged as we are about the recent events. In fact, this blog is receiving much traffic from Chinese dog lovers, as news of the My Dog Votes Worldwide Candlelight Vigils Against Breed Bans has made its way to China. Chinese dog lovers are joining the MDV Vigils (see the full MDV Event Calendar) in Wuhan, Beijing and KanMing, to light a candle and commemorate the deaths of innocent dogs there.

Please include the Chinese people - who are suffering the loss of their innocent dogs through no fault of their own - in your thoughts and prayers during the My Dog Votes Candlelight Vigils - as they too have lost.

PS - My Dog Votes products are made in the USA & Canada.


I have always said that BSL is all about respect for dogs - and not about dog breeds - that people should be fighting BSL not because they own a targetted breed - but because they are fighting for respect for ALL dogs - and the fact that China and the resident's there are planning vigil's timed with vigil's in North America in response to the horrible slaughter they've lived through in their own country points out that what they've witnessed really IS about RESPECT. For THEIR dogs - and for them as dog owners. What they are going to be fighting for is exactly the same thing that we've been fighting for over here. We all have no choice but to win. Our dogs' very lives depend on it.
