In addition, those signing up for the early-dog special will receive a PetHub dog ID tag and $10 coupon codes for PetBest.com and Dog Is Good.

    It isn’t bad enough that the globalist bastards have used TV as an MKULTRA mind control weapon against humans. Now they want to use TV as an MKULTRA mind control weapon against dogs. And it isn’t surprising that phony animal rights groups such as HSUS – who aren’t above buying stock in Tyson Foods and fast food corporations in order to profit from the slaughter of factory farmed chickens, cows, and pigs – are behind this BS. H$U$ and Wayne Pacelle can choke on a fat one…and in Pacelle’s case, I hope he chokes to death.
