We have dates.... and some really bad news

Right now I'm in California. Jason and I went to the San Diego Zoo, as well as the Museum of Natural History and two art museums and a photography museum. We both had a lot of fun and enjoyed ourselves.. Jason did give me the update on what he's learned. And soo far we will be stateside for my birthday!! In fact we will be working on moving out of our house on my birthday...
The bad news however... my neighbor sent me a message letting me know that some guy was going around to each house posting fliers about a breed ban that the USMC has started a couple months ago and is beginning to reinforce.. and wouldn't ya know that Pit Bulls, Rots and their mixes are on it. If you don't know Athena is a Half Rot, boxer, pit mix..Another friend of mine confirmed that the MC started this a couple months ago and suggested to just and in order for us to be able to keep her because this breed ban is world wide, she has to undergo a Canine Good Citizen test. ( http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/training_testing.cfm ) After reading everything that is listed on the AKC sight for the good citizen testing... Jason and I are both seriously worried and heart broken that we will more than likely not be able to take Athena with us to Japan... My mother called a church friend of ours who has fostered dogs and apparently done the CGC before and she's said she'll help.. I'm just still really worried... Prayers are very much needed on this situation.
