Summer is here and we in the Northern Hemisphere know it. It has been hot hot hot. Yes, we definitely suffer and sweat and commiserate, but what about the voiceless? What about our lovely cats and dogs who are stuck in the house while we are at our air-conditioned offices? Not all of us have central air conditioning at home. In fact, most Angelenos don’t because it’s supposed to be a somewhat temperate environment. That doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get hot as Hades sometimes (a few weeks ago, it surpassed 100!). It is desperately important to keep your beloved furry friend cool at home. Here are a few ways you can:
We don’t do this often; in fact, I don’t think we have ever done this on the blog. For the past few years, we have both been subscribed to a service that allows individuals to petition just about anything online. By garnering signatures, their hope is that they can change something, using those signatures as leverage against the party they are opposing. While neither of us has ever created a petition, nor do we know anyone personally who has used the service, there have been occasions where we have signed other petitions.
In all honesty, it’s hard to know who is right, who is wrong, who is telling the truth, and who is lying. It’s based on different opinions and views of any situation. Still, it’s a relatively civilized way of trying to figure out a solution to a problem. You get the idea and you can decide for yourself what petitions you do or don’t want to sign. I, however, for some reason have decided to share this petition and ask you to consider signing it.
