This is just WRONG.

The Zoo Crew's Mom tipped us off to a situation going on right now. We're asking our friends to read the article and if you feel so inclined write a quick note about your feelings.

The story is about a dog who is legally living with his family in Chelsea. They are not breaking any of the building or city rules or regulations. The building board being led by Soledad O'Brien of CNN is taking the family to court to force them to "get rid" of Ugo, a Neopolitan Mastiff. Why, you ask? Well because of his "size, slobbering, shedding, drooling, gassiness and odors." By the way, she lives 3 FLOORS away from Ugo and his family. Not even our COMBINED smell could reach that far. Even if we ate beans and chili and rolled in our poop.

Come on friends, what if someone wanted to make us leave our family because we fart a lot? We'd all be homeless. Ugo's family is even taking him to a professional groomer three times a month to try to make the power-hungry board like him more...and offered to use the freight elevator so his farts wouldn't bother them. They said no. Hmm, wonder why? Maybe because then they wouldn't have something to complain about?

We're asking that if you think this is wrong for Ugo to be made to leave his family take a second and post this info on your blog plus send a note to CNN.

Here's the article:

More pictures of Ugo with his family...

Write to CNN and let them know what you think of their great reporter:

Pass it on in the name of farting, smelly dogs everywhere!!
We have rights!!

PS If anydog finds other contact info on where to write please let us know!

If we had to get rid of everyone who farted, then Pappy would have to leave like last week. Ask Peanut's mom. She knows!
Oh, for the love of Common Sense. Where has it gone?

What a woman of character...
That is exactly why I like dogs a helluvalotmore than people.

Argh.

CNN has been notified of my severe distaste of Soledad's non-tolerant view of Ugo. And if I can figure out how-I'll get this over onto my blog. I guess she thinks her butt don't stink but I'm for certain that it does!! Chester

Peanut said...

Oh that chaps my farting butt. It really does.

I hate people like that. Mom just sent the message to CNN. I'll try to get her to post for me, but we're having internet problems at home and she's been swamped at work.

That resonates with me. After half my neighbours accused me of peeing in the stairwell when I didnt.

I'll get Misery onto it.

We are P.O.ed in Georgia!!!
I've forwarded to all in my address book and will post on blog tomorrow!!!
Has Ms. O'Brien ever smelled a dirty baby diaper? Would she want to throw out the baby???
Outrageous!

Oh my dog this STINKS. No pun intended. How ridiculous. If you don't like the sounds, smells, and looks of other people and things--maybe you don't belong in NYC. Just sayin'.

Oh boy. My new sister is an Italian Mastiff and she did have some fart power, apparantly quite common in the breed. Mum says more red meat in the diet eliminates this, I must admit the air has been fresher around here, she sometimes does a great fart sound but they're not room fillers any more. Good luck to Ugo!!!

That is horrible! Thanks for letting everyone know!
By the way, I'm Fred, and I just stopped by to say hello. Love your blog!

goodness, if that were the case, Jan would have thrown me out right after she brought me home! And I did get over that phase, fortunately.

What a dum dum she is...her babies poop & fart & make messes & are noisy...why doesn't the building make her move?

Doesn't she have more IMPORTANT things to toot (no pun intended) her CNN horn about than a slightly smelly pup?

Don't sweat the small stuff SOLEDAD!

Love & Licks,
Randi

ps...we love you UGO!!!

OMG!!!! My Mom can't stand Soledad O'Brien for her crappy reporting style which stinks worse than dog farts.
