When I first read Bion's story on the Loving Homes Dog Rescue facebook page (thanks to Nicky Hoad of 'Nicky's Pad' for introducing me to their wonderful work) I just sat and cried whilst trying to write a response that would show my strength of feeling and sadness at the heartbreaking news of Bion’s passing.

Bion was only 3 years old but in his short life he had been hurt beyond repair by cruel people who participate in the despicable, barbaric and criminal activity of dog fighting. Bion was used as a bait dog.

Bion’s happiest days were in his final few weeks where he was safe at last as a resident of Loving Homes Dog Rescue in Devon, UK and I wish the same as everyone else who cares, that he could have had a long and happy life but tragically his little body had grown tired of repairing itself. And so Bion, whose name mean's 'life' became another precious dog for whom I will always hold a special place in my heart.

Terry and Chris and their supporters wish to do something memorable in Bion's name and they plan to begin working towards ‘Bion's Law’. Paul and I decided a song would help to raise awareness of this important campaign which will highlight the need for greater protection of animals at risk from cruelty. They told us Bion's tail was always wagging! They said he was full of fun and he didn't let his pain stop him from enjoying the great times he had in their care alongside his good friend Bubs. So Bion's song is deliberately happy and upbeat just like him and you can see a little of the inspiration for Bion's song in this video where Bion and Bubs are racing around having a fine old time chasing each other and playing without a care in the world.




Bion's song will be available to purchase on CD direct from Loving Homes Dog Rescue website and it will help to raise funds for other dogs who, through no fault of their own, are abandoned or neglected.

So, if you would like to buy a copy in support of their wonderful work please visit the links below.

We believe Bion was here for a reason and he will be remembered because his story created a reason for positive change and a peaceful movement to end the abuse of animals.

Your support for Bion’s Law could help to:

End Dog Fighting, end dogs being used as bait, end cruelty and raise awareness of the need to end BSL alongside a call for the end of unlicensed backyard breeding which directly causes the overpopulation of companion dogs. Bion's Law will endeavour to create education programmes to encourage higher standards of welfare for all companion animals through reaching communities with a message that animals matter, they feel pain the same way we do and they deserve our care, respect, protection and kindness.

'Bion's Law'

Well times were hard and I was down on my luck
But a cheeky little lad keeps his courage up
Knowing one day these bad times were gonna change
And sometimes when everything was hurting bad
I'd wag my tail to get rid of the sad
Someone will come and take me out of this place

You know I'm only young but I got my friends
And people try to do the best they can
They helped me through and now I know why I came
There's gonna be a law written in my name!

And Bion's Law will come shining through
To stop bad people doing things they do
Someone's gotta stand up for dogs like us
In kind hands and hearts... we place our trust

Well I'm peaceful now like a summer's day
I wag my tail and run free and play
I think of those who cared and I know I'm loved
But I can't speak up so please speak for me
My wish is a world without cruelty
My dream will light the way to keep them safe

I was a broken boy and you took me in
And I heard you say they'd never hurt me again
I feel your strength and I know you'll try
Change has gotta come and I'm right by your side

Cos Bion's Law will come shining through
To stop bad people doing things they do
Someone's gotta stand up for dogs like us
In kind hands and hearts...
Cos Bion's Law will come shining through
To stop bad people doing things they do
Someone's gotta stand up for dogs like us
In kind hands and hearts... we place our trust
