RE: Should dogs be kept as Pets?
Is there a fish park where I can take my aquarium for exercise?

And will my pets be forced to play with Siamese Fighting Fish?

Wait, it's not the fish, it's the owners.

Man, you can't appreciate the simple pleasure of a dog around here without someone trying to get you to buy an underwater zen garden.

It all started with the bird watching. That was the gateway.

Along with James Thurber, I am coming to fear that people just don't understand the sensitive nature of dogs.

Quote:Q. Sometimes my dog does not seem to know me. I think he must be crazy. He will draw away, or show his fangs, when I approach him.

A. So would I, and I'm not crazy. If you creep up on your dog the way you indicate in the drawing, I can understand his viewpoint. Put your shirt in and straighten up; you look as if you had never seen a dog before, and that is undoubtedly what bothers the animal. These maladjustments can often be worked out by the use of a little common sense.

It is very simple. If you want your dog to behave, tuck in your shirt, stand up straight, don't mock his powers and for God's sake, don't mistake him for a cast iron lawn dog. James Thurber knew this 70 years ago, and there is no excuse for us not to know it today.

“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”

Western society has coddled us so much that not only our children have a plethora of made up illnesses, but now so do our pets.

Maybe it is better for those types of people to have dogs or cats than screwing up more children.

I concur.

I remember those days. For some reason, dog shit was never a problem back then. You took your dog for a walk, it shat on some person's lawn down the street from you, but no ticket was issued, nobody ran out of their house screaming at you for what just happened.

If you found dog crap on your lawn that wasn't yours, you just poured some water on it till it dissolved. Or you got a shovel and moved it to the street drain. It just wasn't that big of a deal.

Maybe it's because there weren't as many dogs back then. Now, dogs are everywhere, probably because people would rather talk to their dog than another person.

I wanna get a dog but I don't want to have to pick up after the thing.

Damn I miss the 80s...

RE: Should dogs be kept as Pets?
I have had dogs my whole life. Always retrieving breeds like labs, goldens, chessies and versatile german dogs. My dogs have always been a joy other than shitty carpets, vet bills and getting in the garbage. My dogs have fetched me many a bird from icy water or places I could not get to. Found lots of game I would never have seen. They are happy to see me, don't hold a grudge, love to go anywhere outside, and are thrilled with a salmon carcass for dinner. They are truly loyal and good companions that get me out of the house every day.

If you want a dog you have the responsibility to mind it properly. This means walks, running free, a yard to play in where it can be let out to relieve itself also. Complete recall ( comes every time it is told to no matter what) and obedience training, overall a stimulating life. If it is going to sit in the house waiting for you to come home every day with nothing to do then get yourself a cat.

"Cæsar once, seeing some wealthy strangers at Rome, carrying up and down with them in their arms and bosoms young puppy-dogs and monkeys, embracing and making much of them, took occasion not unnaturally to ask whether the women in their country were not used to bear children; by that prince-like reprimand gravely reflecting upon persons who spend and lavish upon brute beasts that affection and kindness which nature has implanted in us to be bestowed on those of our own kind. With like reason may we blame those who misuse that love of inquiry and observation which nature has implanted in our souls, by expending it on objects unworthy of the attention either of their eyes or their ears, while they disregard such as are excellent in themselves, and would do them good."

The ancients knew what's up.

That is a great find. I have never seen that quote before. My high esteem for Julius Caesar has just gone up another solid notch.

Here is an interesting article that there are now more dogs in San Francisco than children.

"Marking Their Territory: Thanks to the tech crowd, San Francisco is now home to more dogs than children—and the city is forever changed"


Now a person can't even work anymore without being bothered by dogs.

Caesar was right that unhealthy transference of affection from children to dogs is a sign of the decline of a civilization. Fuck dogs and their degenerate owners.

A woman found dead in Ohio was killed by her own Great Danes, police say

(CNN)An Ohio woman found dead in her home was likely killed by her own dogs, police say.

Mary Matthews, 49, was found in her Clearcreek Township, Ohio, home, about 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati on Friday, local police told CNN affiliate WLWT.

The cause of death has been determined to be a "dog attack," Clearcreek Township police Chief John Terrill told WLWT. Matthews suffered multiple wounds, according to an incident report reviewed by the affiliate.

Investigators found two "large but thin" Great Danes on an enclosed deck of the home and blood was present throughout the house, according to WLWT.

Matthews' husband, Mark Matthews, found his wife unresponsive in the home Friday and called authorities. He had been in county jail since Wednesday and returned home that day, authorities told the affiliate. There was no information on when the attack might have occurred.

Mark Matthews said the family rescued the dogs about two years ago but one had recently become vicious, biting his arm, WLWT reported.

"I wanted to get rid of him, but she wouldn't," Mark Matthews told the affiliate. "She loves animals."

Authorities believe that the dogs attacked the woman and she was able to put them outside before succumbing to her injuries. Police believe she may not have realized the severity of her injuries and there was evidence that she had changed her clothing as well as attempted to clean up the blood with towels, the affiliate said.

Police said the victim suffered from chronic alcoholism and took several prescription medications, which may have impacted her ability to respond to the situation appropriately, according to WLWT. The incident report reviewed by the affiliate says investigators found debris in the home including beer cans and medication bottles.
"Due to this history, it is felt that (Mary Matthews) may not have been in a clear-minded state to judge the severity of her situation and thus failed to call for help," the police report said.

WLWT reported that the dogs were euthanized.

RE: Should dogs be kept as Pets?
Recently I found myself in the unenviable position of being in an office building, and passed by a woman's office with a self-congratulatory sign proclaiming her adherence to various degenerate causes as an "ally." The most egregious said something very close to this:


So not only do you advertise your slavish, unnatural devotion to your pet, which is a clear indicator of your internalized guilt from your failure to reproduce and have actual children, but you "advocate" for a dog breed responsible for the vast majority of injuries and deaths.

These people are utterly broken.

I don't really have a problem with the dogs themselves, and have a pit mix in my house I got to inherit. I don't like most dogs and love this thing on account of his generally sweet demeanor and goober-ness.

Pit owners.....I can't freaking stand. They viciously defend the breed with the goal of stamping out any negative opinion of pitbulls and it is completely insufferable.
