Dogs For Choice

Well, will wonders never cease? The new kid – the embodied dog of Roxie’s World – is ready to make her first political statement. Suffice it to say, I – the spirit dog of Roxie’s World – heartily approve Ms. Ruby’s message:

Of course dogs in general, being sensible, freedom-loving critters, are pro-choice, but sweet Ruby is, well, like a dog with a bone on this particular issue, having been forcibly bred lord knows how many times during the three years and two months of her life she spent in a Missouri puppy mill – Bow-schwitz, as Moose insists on calling it – before she came to live with the moms. She knows that no being can be called free if it lacks reproductive autonomy: the right to choose whether or not to have sex, bear offspring, and tend to those offspring as one’s own. What is the difference between Bow-schwitz and South Dakota or Georgia these days? Not much, Ms. Ruby declares.

Want to meet some other pro-choice dogs and a couple of anti-dog/pro-choice cats? Check out Dogs For Choice, which we stumbled upon by way of the critter-loving, gyno-affirming Melissa McEwan of Shakesville.

Have a lovely weekend, darlings, and, whether you’ve got two legs or four, we hope you will fight for reproductive choice – doggedly. Start by clicking here and giving the good folks at Planned Parenthood  a shekel or two. With all the woman-hating, sex-phobic dipsticks that have taken power in the states these days, Planned Parenthood could use all the love and money you can spare. Peace out.


  1. Love this post, Rox! Just like you, Ruby is very committed to Freedom (she likes us to sing "Oh Ruby" to the tune of "Oh Freedom" ;) And. . .just like you, I encourage everyone to support Planned Parenthood!

  2. Thank you for a wonderful article! Freedom is very important to dogs and it should be very important to humans, too. Dogs are here to help us to learn and to love. That's my opinion, anyway.
