One of the downfalls Mark Buehrle had to face when playing for the Miami Marlins was that his dog was not allowed in Miami-Dade county due to a pitbull ban. Buehrle says his dog, Slater, is very friendly and his wife Jamie even started a petition in Miami to end the ban. Now that Buehrle was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in a blockbuster deal on Tuesday, at least he, Jamie and Slater can live in peace — or not. Unfortunately for the Buehrles, pitbulls have also been banned in the province of Ontario, Canada since 2005. Mark and Jamie might have an even bigger issue on their hands in Canada, since that means they would have to make a long commute from Toronto over to the nearest province, which is Quebec. As we learned from his harsh criticism of Michael Vick nearly two years ago, Buehrle is a big time dog lover. He’s not the type of person who is just going to leave Slater behind in Florida, so I’m sure he’ll either get used to the drive or fight to be able to keep his dog in Toronto. As Kevin Kaduk of Big League Stew pointed out, another petition is pretty much inevitable.
