April 20th was Humane Day, when animal related organizations from around Missouri travel to Jefferson City to talk to legislators about humane animal issues. Dharma and Mutts-n-Stuff were at the state capital to talk to lawmakers about the big bust last year and the horrible plague of dog fighting that is afflicting the state. Legislation has been proposed that would make things a lot harder for dog fighters and a little easier for bust dogs. We had no idea what a celebrity Dharma is! Many people – including members of the state House and Senate – recognized Dharma immediately. She was a real trooper and gave lots of kisses and snuggles. Here are some pictures from her big day. These were taken by photographer Mike Bizelli, who took the pictures at the bust site last July. He was thrilled to be able to take some new pictures of Dharma now that she is happy and healthy.
