    French poodles will be banned in the city of Torrino (Turin), Italy. At least, that’s how I read this silly CNN piece:

    Dog owners in Turin will be fined up to $650 if they don’t walk their pets at least three times a day, under a new law from the city’s council.

    People will also be banned from dyeing their pets’ fur or “any form of animal mutilation” for merely aesthetic motives such as docking dogs’ tails, under the law about to be passed in the northern Italian city.

    “In Turin it will be illegal to turn one’s dog into a ridiculous fluffy toy,” the city’s La Stampa daily reported.

    Too funny.

    However, I’d be in trouble. We never walk the dog. He’d drag us to death. Does having a large fenced in yard get you an exemption?
