June 20 was ‘Chain-off’ day at the State Capitol. Every year activists (initiated by Dogs Deserve Better) designate a day to advocate for anti-tethering laws for dogs. This year, besides having chain-offs in various cities, they got close to 40 people on the Capitol steps from 7am-5pm. This means sitting chained to a doghouse for 10 hours.
Unfortunately, Pennsylvania still lags behind several states in this type of legislation. :P
Early in the afternoon I had the chance to drive downtown to take a few pictures and talk to a few folks. I also delivered a wedding card to the organizer (Tami), who was getting married on the same Capitol steps later in the day.
In case nobody noticed, I'm a big dog-lover. -Tooks
