I think that some dog owners seem to attribute human characterisitcs onto their own pets.
All this stuff about little Killer The Pitbull being all cute and loving is crap!!!!
Animals are animals for Gods sake - smelly, greedy, and untrustworthy - governed by their instincts.
However cute we all like to think they are - ALL animals and NOT just dogs - they don't operate in the same way as humans.
Why do dog owners especially seem to get so uppity if someone criticises their particular breed of pet?
Get a life - it's an animal!
I like animals and have a few pets myself, but this mindless defence of them can be dangerous.
A four month old baby was killed a few weeks ago by a couple of Rottweilers - I wonder how the owners described the dogs prior to the attack? As soon as it happened they were carted off and euthanased - no sentiment there then? ↓

|That's exactly the kind of attitude I'm talking about. What makes you think that I don't care for my pets properly? They're very well taken care of thank you very much. Just because they're animals doesn't mean that they should be neglected but having a brain means that I haven't turned into some kind of sentimental sop either. |
I suppose you think that your pets are your "Ickle, darling babies" and therefore the attitude that you hold is right whilst mine is wrong. ↑

|u said animals are smelley greedy and untrustworthy there for i feel really sorry for your animals everyone has the right to there own opinion but it seems yours has to be the only one that matters and its not right i rescue animals to but i do it for the animals not to make my self look good good for u that u rescue animals but do it for the right reason ↑|

|I don't rescue them in order to make myself look good. If I come across an animal that needs help then I do it because it's suffering. |
And animals DO smell and you wouldn't trust a horse or cow by walking behind it would you? You wouldn't get into a pig pen with a nursing sow and start petting her - of course you can't trust them - you have to be careful. I don't trust my cat not to scratch my son.
And you feel sorry for my animals? Why?
I have a 58 litre tank for my fish - they eat 4 different types of the best food, a filter, lighting, water analysis to test for nitrate levels, water changes, water conditioners etc.
My guinea pigs live indoors in a cage - cleaned and washed out twice a week, baths to keep their skin healthy and reduce pests, premium food, wood to chew on, fresh fruit and vegetables every day, nails clipped, an outside run so they can go on the grass, protection from the sun in summer etc. They get prompt veterinary treatment if necessary.
My cat is from a rescue shelter, eats premium veterinary approved food, is microchipped, has flea and worm treatments, her own bed, toys, vaccinations and goes outdoors when she feels like it. She also gets prompt veterinary treatment if she needs it.
My pets are better cared for than some kids! ↑

|well im glad u care for your pets but common i agree with u in many things but what makes me so angry is people dont realize that there are so many good dogs out there just because one dog has done something so horrific doesnt mean my dogs are gonna do it the way u came off was rude and very much more of a higher power like ive said before everybody is able to have an opinion but your views are different then others peoples views it doesnt make any of us right or wrong its from our own personal experiance my dogs have not even so much of a snarl from them in 13 yrs and i trust them and it will never change. ↑|

|lol @ atomic snowflake..... your right...|
I had two dogs, I only have 1 now, (shelties)
But basically, Ive had dogs all my life, the most Ive had at one time is 3. Thats all I could handle. Our daughter came along 4 years ago and those dogs were by my side the whole time I was pregnant, when we brought the baby home they sat outside the door of her room, wouldnt leave her side. She was taught from a VERY young age, not to pull their hair or sit on them, or lean on them. They loved her and there was never an issue with dominance because they STILL slept on our bed, on our lounge and were allowed in the house after she was born.
They were amazing with her. But I NEVER left her alone with them at ANY time. Your right, they are still animals! domesticated but still with inate behaviours.
Did you hear about the pit bull attack in Australia not long ago?
These three pitbulls were kept in a yard and a little girl was in the yard playing with children that resided at the house. Anyway, the day came to an end and everyone went home, but the little girl made her way back to the yard later to see if the children had returned playing. Basically, they tore her apart.
The owner had this to say about Pitbulls "If you own one of the bloody things- Get rid of it, never ever trust or own a pitbull"
Goes to show, you cant watch your dogs if you have sufficient security. But maybe she would have had a chance, had they had been poodles, fox terriers or any other breed, that when they bite just snap once or twice, instead of fighting to the death like a pitbull! ↑

|Did you stop to think that humans are animals? I don't think so. Animals operate in the same way as children. For instance, pigs have the mental capacity of a 3 year old. |
We are getting "uppity" because we are against breed specifiic legislation of any kind. We would take up for any breed. Why do certain ignorant people bother trying to put down a certain breed when they have not done extensive research on it? Get a life-or better yet an education.
With any animal you have to be careful around your children. I wonder... this 4 mo. old baby you're talking about... was it left alone with the dogs even for a moment? Somehow I bet it was. ↑

|Oh, and wild animals don't have more of a chance of hurting your children than a pitbull? Point proven. ↑|
