    Finally! Photos of us

    Nice pics- you're all very photogenic. :)
  2. Have a look- it's a blog written from the point of view of a stray dog in Bangkok. It's not written to make you cry and in fact it's quite humorous, but the sheer number of strays are sad enough: [url]http://bkkstreetdogs.blogspot.com/[/url] And a link to sponsor a stray dog in Thailand (AUD$12 a month): [url]http://www.soidog.org/index.htm[/url] Everyone knows about the animal welfare organisations in their own countries and the problems with overpopulation that are prevalent everywhere, but the overwhelming number of strays in places like Delhi, Bangkok, parts of Indonesia etc are really horrible. This link was posted on another forum (and the girl who posted it got flak for supposedly putting starving animals over starving children :roll:), so I thought I'd post it here just in case anyone's interested.
  3. I'm not going to deny I find it very juicy indeed :D but there's a time and a place for it, and that sort of stuff is probably better off in PMs/email/chat.
  4. Yeah, I've noticed that Michele :D Re Naomi's email to k9- UGH. So she's going to get what she wants- that is, she's going to get rid of Zoey. I wonder what Justin will have to say about that considering she's his dog, yes?

    Petition- stop dogs being used as live bait

    What the Snopes site is saying is that there was an article published in the Reunion Island paper stating that although it had occurred, it was a rare occurrence (ie using live dogs as bait). The practice of using dead dogs as bait is done by a small group of fishermen, and the dogs weren't people's pets but rather strays (there is a sterilisation program that's been going on since 2001- not very effective if they still have 150,000 strays) that had been culled. So when I was saying that a live dog had been used as bait "once or twice", I wasn't quoting directly from the articles, more that I was supposing that had it only happened once or twice, that would still be too many times for me to condone. Does that make sense? I have to go to work now so I'll clarify it later if it's not clear.

  7. I completely understand where they are coming from- being an EMT doesn't mean that you throw caution to the wind. Actually, as "professional" lifesavers, where rescuing people and being in tough situations is part of the job, this would make them even more likely to keep a cool head and not rush in blindly like perhaps I would have done as a lay rescuer, or everyone here would have done. This doesn't mean that I necessarily agree with their reasoning, though. I think they probably should have gone in, especially as there were so many of them there. But then again, I'm not a licenced EMT. I wasn't there; I can't assess the situation from their eyes. I'm glad baby DJ is ok. It could have been worse.[/i]

    Should shelters lie about a dogs breed?

    I'm with the others: full disclosure is the only way to go. Lying doesn't get anyone anywhere and this is applicable to dog breeds. Not only does is cause problems for the owner, it can cause problems for the dog as it will pay any ultimate price once the truth is discovered. There could be possible legal implications (fraud etc) stemming from this deceit as well. Furthermore, as SG said, if a shelter can lie about a dog's background, what else could they be lying about?

    Having come into this debate at a late stage, I would vote for this to remain open. Call it whatever you want, rolling, whatever, Hmmm fights her dogs. Therefore she is a dog fighter and thus there is no problem for me personally to, as Kiwi put, call a spade a spade. I don't see any of you jumping on the fact that Hmmmm called Kiwi a BYBer?
  12. To me it's more a general "animal" thing. I find that people who don't like animals are generally nasty people. Court hit it on the head.

    Why do I feel the need to educate these people?!

    [quote name='__crazy_canine__']Do it BK! Your the best bitch here! :lol: :wink: Just kidding of course...well kinda anyway. :hmmmm:[/quote] Don't tell Jess you said that- she would be most offended! :wink:
  14. [quote name='Mei-Mei'][quote]Like I said I'm dropping it. Wheres the sense in going around in circles but I do not appreciate being told to shut up by a moderator no less. [b]In my opinion its extremely sloppy and ignorant, not to mention that it shows poor management skills.[/b] Also if I named the person responsible it would just lead to a slagging match. Just drop it if you please.[/quote] In the future if you should have a problem with myself, BK or Mouse you need to send a PM to K. If you have a problem with K then send me a PM. It's not really fair to bring it up in a thread and then not allow the accused person to answer the allegations. :-?[/quote] If you don't like it here you could always go and buddy up with Kayzhound. She [i]also[/i] seems to think she knows everything about running a forum. :wink:
  15. [quote name='K'][quote name='Kat']Feck it [b]I've had enough threats through my pm message box than I care to even count.[/b] I have a strong opinion and NO form of FIGHTING is right. It will only make a dog more aggressive but I am not going to sit on this thread and get [b]slandered by a moderator[/b] for voicing my opinion.[/quote] Who are you accusing of threatening you? Who are you accusing of slander?[/quote] Libel (slander is [i]verbal[/i] defamation) is a fairly serious thing to accuse either K, Mei, Mouse or me of. Unless of course you weren't meaning it literally. The other thing if there is someone threatening you via PM on this board please let one of us know about it if you haven't already and some serious arse-kicking will happen to that gutless person or persons. And edited to say Mei, if you weren't already engaged, I'd marry you! :D
