Witness Protection Program for Dogs?

the daily dish More on PawNation: Dogs, Heart-Warming, Rescue

The Justice Department's Witness Protection Program is a way to protect witnesses whose lives are in danger, usually from reprisal for their testimony. To stay safe, witnesses are given brand-new identities, abandoning their old lives totally. It's a harrowing last resort. The Witness Protection Program for dogs is much sunnier. Instead of hiding dogs in danger, it gives new lives - and new hope - to dogs that already have made it through danger.

Good question, very good in fact. I hope there is some one there who can read this to you. I have asked this same question repeatedly in recent months. More and more are of this format, a video. Perhaps I need to reach out to The Justice Department. The laws have been "on-the-books," to stop this and to allow for the "disabled." It should be noted that the reason for the growing numbers of video's, as opposed to the written word, is due to the "disabled." We have more and more who are illiterate in America. Even worse, in my opinion, is there rapid increase of the aliterate! In this world of massive amounts of information at our very finger-tips too many either have no interest in learning or are too lazy to learn. A recent study on "Search Engine Dynamics" was very revealing. It showed, as an example, the use of Google. When one searches a given subject by typing in a particular set of "key-words" Google will, for the sake of discussion, offer-up some 125,000 different "links," "web sites," "PDF Files," etc. on that very topic. The study showed that 92% of those searching will read, at most, a mere three of those available. Most people will end their reading at "Wikipedia."

Where's the sound. I'm tired of trying to view a video and there is no sound. Is it in 'witness protection' too?
