Political Dog Fighting in Sacramento Takes a Break for Abused Dog's Benefit

It's the rare issue that brings together Democrats and Republicans in Sacramento, but it seems that one thing no one likes, regardless of their political party, is animal abuse. 

Assemblymen Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, and Brian Maienschein, R-San Diego, are pursuing a bill this session that would change the definition of "vicious dog" to allow for more canines rescued from abusive situations to be rehabilitated.

Yesterday, I was driving out to my dad's house in the morning. I do this twice a week to check on him and chat for a bit before heading to work. 

I was on Luneman rd, just past Red Fox but before Hindricks place-the "S" curve in the road. Never, never have I ever seen a dog there. 

Yesterday, there was a golden retriever type dog , probably out because of the storm. I slowed way down, honked my horn and he started running down the road-which made me drive even slower. Ughhh.
