Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  How is everyone doing? I pray that this blog finds you in good health and spirits. I am doing good. I am currently in New Richmond, WI getting ready to deliver a huge Air Conditioner. It is the big units that sit on top of the roof of commercial buildings. I have been keeping pretty busy since being stuck in the winter storm in Oklahoma City, which is good. Because of what has been happening the last couple of months, my company slipped right back into debt which also means my family is also going further into debt. But, we keep pushing forward.

The article I posted above is really sad. We love our pets. We love them so much that we take them to medical experts and pay lots of money on them. For most, our pets are our family. When you take your pet to a veterinarian for something routine, the last thing you think is that your pet will die because the vet seriously messed up and made several serious poor judgment calls. But, that is what happened in this case.

I have seen many reactions to this and I would like to give you all my thoughts. Keep in mind that I love dogs and have one that I love dearly. Sasha is like a human to me, but she is property. A lot of people feel that this vet should be arrested for killing the dog and that laws should be tougher for abuse and killing an animal. They feel that a pet should be looked at like a human. I disagree. There is no doubt that this vet will be heavily punished for DUI and hit and run. She will and should also lose her license to be a veterinarian. But for killing the dog, that should be handled in civil court and I hope that the owner of the dog will sue once the vet is out of prison. There is a couple of reasons why I think pets should be looked at as property in the eyes of the law. 

  1. We open up more problems by making animals human in the eyes of the law. Once we open that door, you will have the government controlling everything in your pet's life and controlling what even you can do and not do according to what the GOVERNMENT thinks is moral. Let me tell you, the government is not moral.
  2. How would putting the vet in jail help the pet owner? Let's face it, our justice system doesn't help the victims, it only punishes the criminal. If the owner takes the vet to civil court, at least the owner can get money. 
So I feel that it is better to keep the law regarding pets as they are. I pray that y"all have a great day. Take care and God bless.
