Baseball Bats Are NOT for Hitting

EveryPUGGY knows I LOVES LOVES LOVES me some Giants Baseball. And I am SO excited that Baseball by the Bay has returned for another season. As you can see, I already have my rally towel, pompoms and orange&black collar ready to go for opening day. It's gonna be grand.

What's not so grand is what happened to Giants' fan Bryan Stow when he attended a Giants vs Dodgers game in LA last weekend. He was beaten SO SEVERELY that now he is in a coma with possible brain damage and disabilities.

As much as I love my Giants, I would NEVER consider it proper to snarl, bite or otherwise GO POODLE on somepuggy just because they happen to root for a different team than the WORLD CHAMPION SF GIANTS!
Beating a man because of the color of his shirt is nonsense!!!!!

This is a GAME my peeps n pups played for the FUN and ENTERTAINMENT of players and fans. It is NOT an earth-shattering event (such as the ongoing crisis in Japan, Haiti, New Zealand, etc.)

I am proud to announce that one of my Mommy's favorite radio stations -KFOG - and one of her favorite musicians - Michael Franti - have teamed up to gather donations to help Bryan Stow's family in their time of need.

In addition, in an act of TOTAL CLASS, the SF GIANTS are collecting donations for the Stow family AND will honor Bryan Stow at their Home Season Opener this weekend.

We all banded together to help Haiti. We all opened our wallets for Japan. Now is time to spread the love to one of our own in his time of need.

Follow the links to donate to either or both of these funds.

Our world just keeps falling apart Noodles. No one is civil anymore. You just keep rooting for your team and stay wonderful.

Heartbreaking and unnecessary.

My mom loves baseball too. Do you go to the game that doggies are allowed to go to?

Mum says aggression of any kind is uncalled for. I hope the person/people who did this were kenneled for a lengthy time-out.
I hope this does not discolour the rest of your baseball experiences this year.

That is a terrible thing to do to anyone for any reason! I hope the injured person recovers and the guilty party is prosecuted!

Drools and licks,
