    More PETA Cr**

    [quote name='gentle_peace']Personally i cant understand how one can be an "animal lover" and yet hunt or eat animals.[/quote] I guess you hate animals then. Better not walk outside - you might step on an ant. Everything you do from driving a car to USING THAT COMPUTER causes animal death. So you can go curl up in a ball in the corner now. How many animals got ground up in the field that produced your vegan soy? I forgot they're "collateral damage" - out of sight, out of mind. HYPOCRITE I could care less what you eat, but when you try to enforce it on me you can go stuff yourself. And you are certainly NOT an animal lover if you support PETA. PETA is all about controlling people. If they spent as much money helping animals as they do on their stupid publicity stunts, they might actually do some good. Well, except that their version of "helping animals" means driving them extinct - dog, cats, anything "man-made". That means ending all pet ownership, ceasing all interaction between people and animals, and forcing veganism on the world. [quote]"The cat, like the dog, must disappear..... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering, and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist." -John Bryant, Fettered Kingdoms: An Examination of a Changing Ethic, PETA 1982, p.15.[/quote] and a couple from our animal loving friend Ingrid.. [quote]"...Eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship, enjoyment at a distance." Ingrid Newkirk - Founder, PETA Harpers, August, 1988[/quote] [quote]"In a perfect world, all other than human animals would be free of human interference, dogs and cats would part of the ecological scheme." PETA's Statement on Companion Animals[/quote] And they are such warm and fuzzy little people haters.. [quote]I believe that this decade will see the first acts of true violence. Some may be accidental - like a bystander killed in a bomb blast; some will be deliberate - like a vivesector shot in the street. The violence will confuse and divide us, but it will be a temporary adjustment and then we will learn to live with it. -Victoria Miller, ARKI: Canadian Animal Rights Network, and former President, Toronto Humane Society (_Animals_Agenda_)[/quote] But seeing as you're statement above looks surprisingly like this one, I bet you don't care. [quote]"Humans have grown like cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the planet." Ingrid Newkirk - Founder, PETA Reader's Digest, June, 1990[/quote] When you join PETA do you get a little card with all of Ingrid's quotes on it so you can regurgitate the party line whenever the need arises? Oh and don't bother replying to this. I've wasted enough time on this already. I'm sure all those direct quotes from your animal loving friends will just bounce off your head and be ignored anyway.

    Update on Patti

    [quote name='Sarahstaff']I don't have a very high opinion of your vet. Entropion is not hard to diagnose.[/quote] Not to mention an extremely painful and common condition in Rotties. It can cause ulceration of the cornea. Maybe that's why Patty's cranky!

    What brand of dog food

    I don't know, but I doubt they are doing that kind of experimentation in front of HSUS members was my point. So, if indeed they are stopping the testing, then that's great. Still won't buy their "[email protected] in a bag", but it'll make it easier to wear an armband with their logo on it at the shows they sponsor. Heh, I fold them in half anyways - Iams, Purina, Nutro... they all get hidden. :lol:

    What brand of dog food

    Well, I was surprised to see this: [quote]The members of our Advisory Board are from respected animal welfare organizations such as the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).[/quote] HSUS is not what I consider a mainstream organization. I think of them as PETA-lite. If the above is true, you can be assured that they would be quite vocal if they found anything wrong. So, maybe Iams is cleaning up their act. Now if they'd just change their food. [img]http://mywebpages.comcast.net/blancm3/images/icon_crazy.gif[/img]

    Just for K

    I found him on a dog training website that I go to. I wouldn't normally call myself a bully fan, but he's disgustingly cute and I couldn't resist sharing him. And yeah, I'll stick around for awhile. Life is too short to get my panties in a twist over what people say on a message board. (Besides, I haven't had a good troll whacking in awhile.)

    I came back just for you. :wink: Look what I found: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~blancm3/images/humphrey01.jpg[/img] [img]http://home.comcast.net/~blancm3/images/humphrey02.jpg[/img] [img]http://home.comcast.net/~blancm3/images/humphrey03.jpg[/img] [img]http://home.comcast.net/~blancm3/images/humphrey05.jpg[/img]

    Spay and Neuter Bill in Oklahoma

    [quote name='kendalyn']Mutts are all very different. It's almost impossible to go to a shelter and find two that look and act alike. I think that's where the choice part comes in. :)[/quote] Yes, exactly. You don't know what you are getting. I know what I want, and some people would like to take that choice away. Anyway, I'm going to remove myself from this board for awhile because my views are obviously not in tune with the current crop of members. This board used to be full of helpful people including hobby breeders. I rarely see them anymore, and now I know why.

    Spay and Neuter Bill in Oklahoma

    [quote name='Mutts4Me']In theory, I think it's a good thing.[/quote] Yes, "in theory", but this is just another feel good law that won't accomplish anything but hurt the people who contribute the least to the problem. [quote]If people have to pay $100 a year to leave their dogs unaltered, then maybe people would be willing to pay the one-time fee it'd take to spay and neuter their dogs. So if the only people who will have intact animals are the serious breeders, then the overpopulation poblem could be drastically reduced, and I don't see how that could be a bad thing at all.[/quote] How about $2500 then? That's what's being proposed in Virginia. How many people can afford that? Commercial breeders can. They can also afford $100 per dog because they make a profit. Most breeders I know don't make a profit. They do it because they love the breed. Oh well, soon there won't be a place for them. And call me paranoid, but this is all part of the AR agenda to end all pet breeding and pet ownership. They start small and work their way up because they know that no one will accept their radical stance outright. If you follow the money trail, you can see where the proposals for these bills come from - i.e. PETA and their ilk. [quote]Breeders should have to be licensed and inspected, and there should be a fee. It may hurt some people, but its biggest effect would be on the people who breed for fun or profit and end up adding to the number of dogs being euthanized in shelters.[/quote] Again, the people this hurts the most are the small breeders.

    Crufts 2004 best in show judge quits!

    Things were much different 30 years ago. There were many large commercial show kennels - that's just the way it was. AKC runs stories about the "historically significant" big kennels all the time. I don't understand why she is being punished for something so far in the past that was LEGAL at the time. It would be different if she was still running a mill, but she's not. Who knows, maybe she saw the error of her ways and has been promoting responsible dog breeding these past 30 years. It's hard for me to get all bent out of shape over something like this.
  10. [quote name='Dog Lover'] It also says that mixed breed dogs are healther? Is this a proven statistic?[/quote] Nope. It's hearsay. My breeder just spent $5,000 on an import from Japan. I think she's nuts too. :o

    Sheding Problem... during winter?

    That's nothing. I have 4 more piles just as big that I collected in a plastic bag. Think I'll make a pillow.

  14. Good for him/her. Too bad there are so many idiots who don't even screen prospective buyers.
