Breed-specific bill not specific enough I would like to register my opposition to the proposed change in dog regulations targeting specific breeds -- Senate Bill 861, introduced by state Sen. Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco) to allow cities and counties to regulate specific breeds of dogs through mandatory spay/neuter programs and other breeding requirements. The problem with introducing breed-specific legislation is that it is not specific enough.

A year ago, veterinarian Matthew Wheaton had to put down a black lab puppy that he would have otherwise operated on, because the owners couldn’t afford to pay the cost of the required surgery to save their pet. Since the heart-wrenching experience, he has made it his mission to ensure he will never face such a predicament again. A lifelong Lagunan and veterinarian of 12 years who has managed his own practice since July 2000, Wheaton recently founded the Orange County Pet Rescue Center, a nonprofit organization that will help local pet rescue groups save adoptable cats and dogs from euthanasia in high-kill shelters by providing veterinary care while looking for loving families to adopt them.

Editor?s n ote: The following letter was addressed to the Laguna Beach City Council. Unless you are going to spay/neuter sea lions, seals and sharks out of existence because you favor certain types of sea creatures over others or surround the ocean with a very large type of gill net, you cannot stop the taking of fish from the local waters. I would hope that even those striving to out-do all others in being the most ?politically correct? would admit the utter futility of trying to keep out all sea lions, seals, sharks and other larger fish that are going to eat those smaller than themselves and/or are on the wrong end of the food chain.
