R.I.P. Jasper Your Photos on the Five Were a Great Joy to View


California has always been on the cutting edge of technology and the arts
Even as its taxes and regulations are causing companies to depart
At last we have heard the alarms when Toyota to Texas leaves
Film companies lured by tax credits to film elsewhere while our FTB seethes
At last a bill has been in the Assembly passed to make us a Dog-Friendly State
No longer chained to the curb or in cars will our canine friends have to wait
While owners leisurely sip wines and dine on sumptuous fare
As disappointed and abandoned barks and howls fill the air
AB 1965 has in our Assembly just been passed to pet owners’ delight
No longer requires dogs to be kept away in a parked car out of sight
Dogs in outdoor dining areas may now with their owners dine
No more tails down, stressed out dogs with excluded howls and whines
Why is this bill important in ending the exodus of wealth to less regulated or taxed climes?
It will target the celebs famous for promoting the joys of having a canine
We all know one of the icons of the Five has Jasper as a pet
If he can enjoy dining here, New York City, Dana Perino will quickly forget
She will start the first trickle of wealth and creativity with canines moving into our state
Bringing job growth and more revenue to add to our fiscal plate
nly one catch on a quick glance to AB 1965 appears
That may muffle the ring of more dollars into the dining cashiers
It applies only to dogs but not to cats who would normally sit quietly on an owner’s lap
Maybe the reason is found in the video of Tara the cat fending off a canine attack,
Saving a boy from more stitches from vicious bites
Causing a much larger dog to run off in terrified flight
Life in California may be a jungle waiting for the next major quake
But soon dining outside also, surrounded by dogs, cats, parrots, lizards and snakes?
Designer pet tags and flea collars only from Rodeo Drive?
For Jasper and Dana, California Senate approve AB 1965
