My Facebook Page!

Hi everyone, I have a big annoucement: I now have my own Facebook page! There are many reasons for this!
  1. First of all, I deserve one.
  2. Second, mom says she doesn't have time to update my blog very often. Well, she can update my FB page from her phone, so no more excuses!
  3. Everyone who knows me loves me, so this is a great way to let more people get to know me!

I hope all of you on Facebook will like my page!

Finally - My Appearance on David Letterman!

At long last, my mom finally has my appearance on David Letterman on YouTube. Thanks to my grandpa for getting a high-quality version of it for me! Here it is!

It was so cool. Tim Robbins was on, and mom met him on the elevator coming back from makeup. One of the other doggie guests was not nice to me and tried to bite my face, so the staff put is in the actor's green room, and we got to meet Evanesence! They were very cool, and were very impressed with my tricks and how calm and well behaved I was with all of the commotion! The staff at The Late Show were great. They were all so nice to me, and many of them came by to meet me backstage! Lots of them said they missed their own dogs and really liked hugging me and spending time with me. I also got to stay with my humans in a really nice pet friendly hotel in Manhattan! It was a lot of fun.

I Want Justice for Bear Bear!

My mom's Justice for Bear Bear tank top arrived today, along with a bumper sticker. Mom can't wait to wear the shirt to the dog park!

I hope everyone saw the news yesterday that the shooter has been charged. It's not enough, but it's something. We truly hope that tougher animal abuse and cruelty laws come out of this tragedy.

Justice for Bear Bear Web Site

There is now a web site dedicated to following Bear Bear's case and keeping everyone up to date. There is also a Cafe Press shop selling Justice for Bear Bear merchandise. The profits from the sales will go toward paying for Bear Bear's emergency treatment and his owners' legal fees.

In addition, here is an article from a local Anne Arundel County news station about the Rettaliatas' attorney questioning why it's taking so long to file charges, and how the Rettaliatas have asked for a supplemental case report but have not yet received it from the Anne Arundel County police.

One Week Anniversry of Bear Bear's Shooting

It has now been one week since Bear Bear was shot on Monday, August 2nd. It should not have taken this long to get answers to some very straightforward questions:
  • Was the shooter legally authorized to be carrying a personal weapon in a public park?
  • Why was Bear Bear's owner threatened with a taser and not allowed to go to Bear Bear for approximately 20 minutes?
  • Why did the police on the scene prohibit Bear Bear's owner from moving his dog?
  • Why did the Anne Arundel county police close the case in less than 24 hours and refuse to provide Bear's family with the shooter's name?
  • Why is it taking so long for the authorities to answer the question of whether the shooter was legally authorized to carry a personal weapon in a public park?
Many people think that the authorities are stalling, hoping that the topic of Bear Bear's shooting will be forgotten as new news stories arise, and that the public will lose interest and the authorities will then be able to quietly sweep the whole thing under the rug.

That is not going to happen. We must not allow it to happen. We must keep demanding answers and justice for Bear Bear.

Below is contact information for various authorities in Anne Arundel County and the state of Maryland:
, Let the authorities know that we demand answers and Justice for Bear Bear!

Eye on Annapolis is Stonewalled by Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Director of Public Affairs

Eye on Annapolis asked four questions:
  1. the officer a DOD employee
  2. If not, is he employed by a contracted firm?
  3. Is he required to carry a weapon while off duty?
  4. Is he authorized to carry a weapon off duty?
Here is the reply they received:
Sir, Per your request: The police officer involved in the Severn, Maryland dog park shooting has been placed on administrative leave pending completion of the Anne Arundel County investigation. This is standard operating procedure for any of our officers under investigation. For information on the investigation, please contact the Anne Arundel County Public Information Officer at 410-222-8700.
We responded to see if she would address the questions as they relate to the Ft. Meyer installation. The email came back immediately with an “out of office” auto responder.

We have to keep the pressure on, keep this in the news, and make it clear that people will NOT forget about this, and we will NOT let it rest until we get answers and Justice for Bear Bear!
