Welcome to OMD Mondays.
I hope you all had a PAW-tastic weekend!
The Sibe Tribe had a pretty relaxing weekend. On Sunday, when the weather was nice, we spent most of the day outside. How about you? What did you and your pack do this weekend?
More fun in the sun photo's to come this week!
On to today's "OMD" story.
A blogging furiend of mine, (Caren from the blogs Cat chat with Caren and Cody, and Dakota's Den) shared this with me, so that I could bring some attention to it. If you don't know her blog, you don't know what your missing!
Did you know that if you own a certain breed of dog, you may have a hard time getting home owners insurance?
I know right!
Talk about breed discrimination in a nutshell!
This deserves a BUTT - HEAD post all in itself!
Why are some breeds blacklisted by insurers?
They choose certain breeds which they believe are more aggressive then others, or who they believe will cause damage, or have the ability to bite more then other breeds.
Is this logical?
Maybe to them, who knows, but to me, this is breed discrimination at it's best.
Here are the top 10 breeds, most likely to be blacklisted by insurers :
- #1 - PitBull - Staffordshire Terriers
- #2 - Doberman Pinschers
- #6 - Perro de presa canario
- #10 - Siberian Husky
There you have it. The top 10 breeds black listed by Insurance companies.
Yep, you saw right!
Number 10 is Siberian Husky, which is of course one of the main reasons I am doing this post! So basically people, if you are owned by one of these breeds, be warned that when you apply for home owners insurance, you may have a hard time.
So, do you think my huskies would pass for Golden Retrievers, so I can avoid the insurers?
Yea, probably not!
Was your dog breed in this list?
Thanks for spending part of your Monday with us!
See you tomorrow :)
