NOTICEDog Fans, give yourselves a pat on the back. We've already collected over 400 pages worth of signatures and comments on the "BRING BACK DOG" petition. We're going to leave it up for a few more days; probably until Monday or Tuesday.
Over 400 pages! We had to start a new post because the comments section at HaloScan was overloaded and was giving some people trouble. This will be up for a few more days.
Keep up the good work! If you know anyone who hasn't signed yet, they still have 3 or 4 more days, so encourage them.
All the instructions are the same as before.
Sign the petition below and help us bring back the Dog.
Tired of reading about it, talking about and worrying about a Dog-less TV line-up?Now you can help get Dog out of the doghouse--now!
We are trying to collect 250,000 signatures to put "Dog the Bounty Hunter" back on the Art & Entertainment Network's fall line-up. The petition and electronic signatures will be sent to the AETV's corporate offices on November 26, 2007. AETV is the parent corporation of the A & E Network.
We will also send along all comments made by the readers--you--at the end of this story to AETV.
To help us help Dog, follow the instructions at the end of the petition wording.
That's 14 days to collect 250,000 signatures: that's only a little over 17,000 signatures a day--a small fraction of the show's audience.
Tell your friends and family and anyone else who might be interested in seeing "Dog the Bounty Hunter" possibly return to the airwaves. If A&E is unmoved, the outpouring of support might surely influence another rival network, such USA Network or Spike TV, to pick the show up.
The petition reads as follows:
Bring back "Dog the Bounty Hunter" to the Arts & Entertainment Network schedule.
The tapes released by the National Enquirer were of a private cell-phone conversation, made without Duane "Dog" Chapman's knowledge (most probably illegally) and sold for monetary gain.
The slur was not an expression of hate, but of ignorance.
Duane Chapman has on several occasions apologized on national TV broadcasts.
While not condoning the use of racial slurs, supporters urge the Arts & Entertainment Network to bring back the "Dog the Bounty Hunter" show.
The sooner, the better.
Only fourteen days.
Everybody better get busy.
[NOTE: We will update the totals from all our source petitions. We took the comments off to speed the page speed. Total for Dog the Bounty Hunter at 07:00 November 13, 2007: 1445]
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SIGNING THE PETITION:
1. Go to the "Comments" section at the end of this piece.
