What makes life really miserable?  Being chained. YES, chained.   Honey, the only chain I would allow around my beautiful neck is this one.... 'Cause it would actually be enhanced by my looks. and vice versa... It's good to be me...

Back to this post... Well, back in 2006 [wow that's a long time ago!!!] a non profit organization was formed in Durham NC. Their mission as stated on their  website is 

The mission of the Coalition to Unchain Dogs is to improve the welfare of dogs living continuously chained outdoors by providing free spay/neuter, vaccinations, and fences, while bolstering connections between these dogs and their human companions through non-judgmental assistance and education designed to raise general community expectations regarding the standards of care for these animals."

Fences, people.... they make great neighbors and keep your pets safe. [My grandpa Mike would have loved reading this... GREAT LAKES FENCE co....]

The Coalition to Unchain Dogs  set out to make changes in their own community, and you know what? That's the most effective way to make progress. 

Their friendly, non confrontational approach is quite effective. They educate the two leggeds about the benefits and realities of fence vs chain.  Trust me guys...once educated, two leggeds get it... life on a chain is abuse!
You know... you should go to their website and take a look, sniff around.  You might just learn something and maybe make a difference in your own community.

I give them my PAW of APPROVAL!
