KingCast, Peppers and Uncle Adam Karp celebrate settlement of Livi the Wonderdog v. Kristina Amlak/Kristina Robinson/Precious Paws and Ahadu Amlaktereda.

What I dig about Livi's lawyer (Justice for Livi link) and Livi the Wonderdog is that he is an innovator. He largely pioneered a genre of law, or substantially expanded a genre of law to reflect a reality about the full meaning that our pets have to us, particularly those of us who are not championing children. 

Unlike many more traditional lawyers he remains flexible in his approach, and as a lawyer who has dealt with scads of lawyers on my side and across from me, I appreciate that. 

Translation: We argued a few times but came to an even deeper mutual respect. 

And that is what life is all about. Respect. Understanding. Justice in the name of Livi the Wonderdog, moving on toward firing up some other initiatives to protect dogs this summer that I will not directly reference in this space.
And to the haters out there who trash-talked me, fuck you. Don't you ever nay-say me. I'm a progressive black man living in America folks. I know what time it is and I have developed a resilient patience that knows no limits. As many folks are discovering, if you are trying to fuck me, I can even wait you out for a decade and pounce on your ass when you least expect it.

And for Glen McCarthy, my Brother-in-Arms, I got a great big hug for you and yours when I get back in town. I cried so hard for you guys yesterday. I'm so sorry man.
