Pooch Vows To End Doggy Discrimination

SARASOTA, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One pooch activist has a dream: That one day, all dogs will be treated equal.

Genevieve Highpoint La Reine is a seven-pound papillon who’s penned Small Dog, Big Life: Memoirs Of A Furry Genius (Simon & Schuster), with the help of her translator, Dr. Dennis Fried.

According to Fried, he and Genevieve can communicate and she “barktated” her memoirs to him to let the world know her opinion of “stupid, pitiful humans.”

Genevieve’s biggest pet peeve is how much humans discriminate against dogs, who, frankly, do a lot for mankind.

She finds it demeaning that pooches are banned from certain places and that humans make dogs do tricks and play fetch.

To protect and advance canine rights, Genevieve has formed an activist group called “Dogs against Discrimination and Unfairness,” or DUDU.

Her first order of business is to eliminate degrading sports team nicknames like “Huskies,” and get humans to stop using the word “dog” in negative phrases like “you’re in the doghouse” or “she’s a real dog.”
