I know some people here are going to say "their only animals, theres bigger things to worry about" I disagree, the fact that a human could look into another creatures eyes see its fear and confusion and then step on it to hold it down and slit its throat is a testament to whats wrong with the world today, We lack any sort of Empathy or understanding for the beings we share this earth with Human or otherwise.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
Cardinal Roger Mahony
"Any society, any nation, is judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members ; the last, the least, the littlest."
Please note, we are not the Whistler sled dog company currently being reported in the media for the alleged inhumane slaughtering of 100 sled dogs. We deplore those actions and were totally unaware of the incident until the media story broke on Monday, Jan. 31. The Whistler company was operating under a similar name to our company and hence the confusion. The Whistler company's name is "Howling Dog Tours Whistler Inc.". We operate as "Howling Dog Tours Ltd." and are located in Canmore, Alberta. "Howling Dog Tours Whistler Inc." does not have a website as far as we know. They were selling tours via this company www.adventureswhistler.com...

www.fabuloustravel.com... and also en.wikipedia.org... Each day "Hachi" would accompany Eisaburo, a professor at the Imperial University, to the train station when he left for work. Upon returning, the professor would find the dog patiently waiting, tail wagging. This happy routine continued until one fateful day in 1925, when the professor was taken ill on the job and unfortunately died before he could return home. Despite the fact that Hachiko was less than two years old at the time, the bond between dog and owner was strong. Hachiko continued to wait each day at Shibuya station for a friend who was never coming back. At times, he wouldn't return home for days at a stretch. The Akita became a familiar sight to commuters as he kept his vigil for over ten years. On March 8, 1935, Hachiko finally went to meet his master. He died on the very same spot he last saw his friend alive.
Buddy, the five-year-old German Shepherd dog who led an officer from the Alaska State Troopers to a blazing fire at his family's property, was honored at a press conference on Friday in recognition of his bravery and intelligence. The dog received a silver-plated dog bowl inscribed with a trooper badge, a giant rawhide bone and a letter describing Buddy's heroic actions. The incident caught national attention when video from the trooper's dashboard camera showed how Buddy led the trooper to the location of the fire, guiding the trooper in the correct direction at each intersection. "Normally, we honor our trained [police] canines," Col. Audie Holloway, head of the troopers, told reporters. "But Buddy is an untrained dog who for some reason recognized the severity of the situation and acted valiantly in getting help for his family."
