Petition Saves Dog's "Smelly Sofa"

 

Levi,a Rhodesian ridgeback dog, is happy in his new Scottish home thanks to an online petition from his owners boyfriend. Jacky Jackson wanted to throw away Levi's favourite sofa when moving home, saying it was "smelly and chewed."

The sofa was used by Levi as a bed and Ms Jackson's partner Darren Spence thought the sofa should move too to help the dog settle in. He started a petition and Ms Jackson said that if enough people signed she would give in.

Over 100 people signed, including people from Germany and Finland. Spence said: "Levi is now settling in to his new home and has parked himself on his favourite sofa again. It's a success for the dog, he needs a familiar place."

So you got 100 people out of millions (I'de say billions, but, not everyone has internet access) that decided they've got nothing better to do at that particular 5 minutes than to type in their name on some e-petition. Riiight..

  what is the point  
 
of having a choice to choose not interesting if you can't use it. I find this story not interesting at all.

  hmm...  
 
i didn't mark the uninteresting on here, but i coulda sworn i saw it earlier from someone? or maybe another article. But it seems like the only thing the admins allow to bad mark are news submissions that lack grammar and aren't written in accuratly.
