Top 10 Reasons Why I Hate Dogs

  1. Ugly DogThey are loud. BARK!! BARK!! BARK!! Even reading those three words is annoying!
  2. They are dirty. They lay down their dog shit wherever they are – On your lawn, on my lawn, in their own beds, on your bed. And on the odd occasion I end up with dog shit on my shoes and don’t find out until I’ve walked through my house… by GOLLY THAT MAKES ME FURIOUS!!
  3. They smell. They need to be washed like a car otherwise they infect uphostry (couches, carpets, curtains) with their stench.
  4. They get angry. And frankly I’m scared of most of them.
  5. They dribble. And their slime gets onto your clothes. eeeuch!
  6. They are ugly. Ok, ok, I’ll make a few exceptions for some puppies, but in general I don’t think they are an attractive animal.
  7. They need so much attention. They go mental if they are left alone for long periods of time (much to the annoyance of the neighbours i.e. me!)
  8. They wreck stuff. Chewing, knawing, eating, scratching
  9. They render owners backyards unusable. Don’t you dare walk back there with bare feet!
  10. One killed my cat! (June 08) The cutest fricken cat in the world too :(

I also hate how shows on Animal Planet are disturbingly pro pitbull it’s insane really.

I love watching CM as he leads stupid pitbull owners around teaching them how to survive and not provoke an attack by their dog on others or themselves.
I’ve also had some of these nutters fill my inbox all of them were vile and full or threats. Much like their dogs prone to snapping and going out of control.
BTW. you can get in a lot of trouble for sending threatening emails. Might want to think twice before you do it again.

naoma foreman July 16, 2014 at 2:15 am

I would suggest definitely “moving on.” You cannot change a dog lover.
I have a friend with 7 pets (we are only “correspondence” friends) and
a LARGE number of them are dogs.

StopTheDogMania July 16, 2014 at 5:45 am

Wow 7 pets. I can only imagine the bill for food and vet. I been in a car accident recently and my therapist at the chiropractic office likes to talk to me sometimes and the other day I mentioned I have chickens on my property so she mentioned she has 6 dogs and shows me pictures of them. She said that 4 of them are pit bulls and 2 are other breeds. She says that she lets them run around in the backyard to play with her grandkids. Ugh!

naoma foreman July 16, 2014 at 6:02 am

I cannot imagine ANYONE having that many pit bulls. Those dogs scare me just to see them. Playing with kids is definitely not smart.
Those dogs are always in the news for biting someone (especially
children) and I cannot imagine anyone finding them worth having.

nodogs4me July 16, 2014 at 6:08 am

I sometimes have to shake my head, because I will NEVER understand the mentality and thought process of a dog owner. It is hot in Florida during the summers, very hot. I have an above ground pool in my yard as many people do who can’t afford in ground, or don’t own the land they live on. I was by my gate recently talking with one of the neighbors I frequently speak to, and another neighbor passed, whom I just kind of have that ‘hello’ in passing type relationship with. And of course, in those casual hello s the weather is often brought up.

So, in response to the oppressive heat, I mentioned I was going to be getting myself back in the pool. My passing neighbor, who had a similar pool, yet larger than mine, brings up they she can no longer use her pool as the dogs kept chewing it up. Oh, nice! So, you would rather have useless dogs that give your kid someplace comfortable during the summer, so he can just stay inside and play video games. I remember them using the pool quite a bit before the y got the stupid mutts.

Now these are people who aren’t financially endowed. Dad ended up on disability for COPD, and mom works in a school cafeteria. Just don’t get how you bring these things into your life, that the destroy the limited resources you have. I really do believe there is something missing in the brains of doggers that prevents them from seeing logic.

naoma foreman July 16, 2014 at 6:16 am

“Boggles the mind, indeed” where these people have placed their brains.
Some put the dog(s) over everything in their life. I never had one, never wanted on, etc.

nodogs4me July 16, 2014 at 6:33 am

Yes, Naoma. I agree. And those people I just mentioned, have 3 mutts, not just one. One can only ask, WHY????

I never had one as a pet either, but growing up my mom was an animal lover of every kind, so we did have exposure to them. Just not as many people had them back then, so they were more of a novelty. I am 56 now, but I remember you did not always hear dogs barking, or be outnumbered by dogs, Of course you would NEVER see them in stores, unless the were a true service dog, and people that did have a dog, usually only had one. I don’t know how this all changed, but somehow it did.

nodogs4me July 16, 2014 at 8:46 am

That is something to think about Naoma, but I am with you in that I will never have a dog, so I guess they won’t be giving me breast cancer. As far as dog people, they will likely just ignore the facts. You know, their dogs are part of the family.

naoma foreman July 16, 2014 at 9:30 am

Something to think about. Of course the “doggie lovers” would prefer
to lose a family member than their dog.

sugary spice July 16, 2014 at 11:25 am

Thanks for letting me vent. And yes, I am counting the days until I move out of this house. The dog crap smell may be affecting my mom’s health as she has some breathing issues, though the dog smells may not be the direct cause of it, I know that it surely doesn’t help matters either. Also breathing in bleach (thats what it takes to get the stench out) certainly can’t be healthy either. This dog has turned our kitchen into her toilet and it’s beyond disgusting. It’s a shame since I love to cook, but the smell has ruined the cooking experience for me. I hate cooking in this house since I know the dog piss/poops just a few feet away from the cooking area. And I eat in my bedroom since I can’t stand the smell downstairs in the kitchen. Yesterday we had a very stormy night and this dog is scared of thunder. We were about to go out to the grocery store and my mom decided to take the dog in the car with us. We drive to our destination and my mom stayed in the car with the dog. After coming back with our groceries (about 15 mins), this dog STANK the WHOLE car up. I almost gagged. This is why I didn’t want the damn dog in the car in the 1st place, but of course it doesn’t matter what I want. And once again, I wake up this morning to find an OCEAN of dog urine and pieces of poop on the kitchen floor. smh.

@mfatpony@aol.com
Yeah, it’s pretty pathetic and I find it VERY disturbing. My question is what do people see in pitbulls? Being honest, they are NOT the best looking dog and NOT worth the potential danger they can and have caused. I don’t trust them. What about a dog that is deemed friendly like a golden retriever or something, why pitbulls? I was at a $5 store the other day, and I saw coffee mugs with the words I -heart- my dog with an image of dogs on it and of course one of them was a PITBULL. Another read I -heart -my rottweiler, seriously what is wrong with these people?

I am sorry you are getting threatening e-mails. Seriously with all of the precious “unconditional love” dog owners say they receive from their mutts, they sure do come up with the most vile, absurd, hateful, and threatening messages to those who disagree with them. A girl once told me that her dog is smarter than most people’s children. Wha? All I could do was laugh lol.

dogsfromhell July 16, 2014 at 2:47 pm

Spice,

” Seriously with all of the precious “unconditional love” dog owners say they receive from their mutts, they sure do come up with the most vile, absurd, hateful, and threatening messages”

Isn’t that the truth. What happened to dogs as therapy I dont know anyone who is more “Zen” because of dogs. Instead they seem more aggressive.

dogsfromhell July 16, 2014 at 4:11 pm

Anyone want to counter the dogger that thinks the IAMs dog food commercial is just dandy.

mfatpony@aol.com July 16, 2014 at 8:27 pm

dogsfromhell. I try very hard to not watch dog food commericals. They always involve dogs licking the faces and mouths of their owners.

mfatpony@aol.com July 16, 2014 at 8:34 pm

The drive to own a pitbull is tied to the same mentality that drives humans to own wild animals. That they are somehow so connected to the beast they will be the ones to tame them.
Take note of Sigfried and Roy and how it ultimately worked out for them. Somewhere deep inside they know the dog is dangerous but feel their love and care will prove triumphant over the breeds natural instinct to attack and be aggressive. These delusions are further fed by shows about the misunderstood pitbull and shelters that feature them on their adoption pages as great family dogs. Stress tests for temperament are worthless since we know the breed does not usually just outright attack. It snaps. Really its a fashion and social statement to say I ( person dragging a pit around ) refuse to stereotype anyone. Which might apply more to humans and much less to animal. Human pack behavior ?

mfatpony@aol.com July 16, 2014 at 8:53 pm

Oh and pet ownership is also a multi billion dollar enterprise. Since most people will not pay for a good quality pet from a breeder with actual standards shelters offer the easiest and cheapest way to pet ownership. There is also the added benefit of the social feel good moment that you somehow saved a life. Pet owners and pet owners to be should educate themselves of the real cost of taking care of any animal they buy or adopt.

naoma foreman July 17, 2014 at 12:15 am

Sugary Spice: That dog MUST GO. You are taking chances with your
health with the dog’s behavior.

mfatpony@aol.com July 17, 2014 at 1:00 am

Naoma, it is beyond my thinking to live in a house filled with poop and pee everywhere. Although I know many people with small dogs that live this way. The floor rats are probably the worst as the owners gauge the size of the turd by the need to actually train the dog. They are followed only in filth by the pugs. None that Ihave met have ever been housetrained. Pug homes are usually a sea of pee.

dogsfromhell July 17, 2014 at 1:18 am

I was referring to our blog section called Disgusting IAMS dog food commercial. Sometimes there are comments in other sections that I see that I don’t think others read because most people stay in the Top 10 Reasons Why I Hate Dogs.

naoma foreman July 17, 2014 at 3:42 am

mfatpony@aol.com: Your description of “the Pug homes are usually a sea of pee” is a wonderful graphic “word picture.” Want to see the video as I have mentioned of the SITE. Thanks.

naoma foreman July 17, 2014 at 4:02 am

ANYONE KNOW: why do dog people let them lick them in the mouth when they know they (dogs) have just “done their business” and licked
their butt???

dogsfromhell July 17, 2014 at 8:18 am

NAOMA: They SWEAR the mutt’s mouth is cleaner than their own and that its PROVEN. Just another myth perpetuated by dog cultists in denial to placate themselves. Similar to the “nanny dog” and “its how they’re raised”. Its such complete nonsense.

dogsfromhell July 17, 2014 at 8:25 am

There was a preschool child we knew that had an intestinal blockage which had to be surgically removed. The mother told me it was so large they had to remove a piece of his intestine. She then proceeded to tell me they are never eating pork again because that was in her opinion the culprit. I couldn’t make sense of this since pork does not typically transmit disease these days. I think it is treated in some way to prevent this from occurring and of course who doesn’t know the standard of cooking pork for at least 20 minutes before serving.

I think what really happened is the child contracted a parasite or worms from contact with the family dog. It could easily have licked him in the mouth or contaminated him in any number of ways which is SOP for doggers.

naoma foreman July 17, 2014 at 8:34 am

Just a question (?) Why are dogs’ mouths considered to be SO CLEAN when they lick their butt after — you know. That is a contamination source and no way CLEAN. Spare me these people who buy this and they are the ones who let dogs lick inside their mouths.

dogsfromhell July 17, 2014 at 12:40 pm

They seem to have faulty reasoning across the board. Who knows why they are so deluded.

nodogs4me July 17, 2014 at 1:45 pm

Oh man, I had to laugh at reading the last few comments on the dogs licking the mouths, eating out of plates etc. That has ALWAYS grossed me out when I have seen it done, but it has never stopped the behavior of those who do it. I had neighbors recently that used to share eating and drinking out of the same vessel with their mutt, and they were damn proud of it. Tongues in the mouth too… The thought send shivers up my spine. I wouldn’t want to eat anything that came from there for sure.

Cat Lover July 17, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Because 3 dogs survived the Titanic and babies died.

sugary spice July 17, 2014 at 3:22 pm

@Naoma: Getting rid of the dog is not an option. We have owned this dog for 10 years now. At one point, I liked the dog but as I got older my patience got shorter and it’s embarrassing how this dog has destroyed our home. She just could never be properly house trained. Smaller dogs are notorious for being hard to house train and yap their heads off. We can control the accidents to some extent, but I have come to realize that there will always be dog mess to clean up, mainly it happens overnight. I am tired of picking up poop.I am tired of having to scream over the dog while she begs for attention or food while I am on the phone or talking to my mom. The dog is banned from going upstairs since I got sick of her nasty messes.She can’t mess in the rooms up there and she can’t eat cat poop out the pan since we moved that upstairs.

My mom is VERY attached to the dog. Unfortunately, this dog is at least expected to live 5 more years. I should definitely have moved out by then and finally be dog and headache free.

abner wizzle July 17, 2014 at 6:08 pm

I couldn’t agree MORE with your TEN REASONS. Exactly. Exactly. On all counts. When I go into a dog owner’s house, the funk is nearly unbearable. THEY don’t smell it — because they’re wallowing in their dog’s miasma all day and all of the night. The stench is hard to describe, but it’s AWFUL — kind of the old “wet burlap” odor, but also fecal stench, “sweat”, rotten meat and other smells that turn my stomach. HOW can someone — even someone who loves dogs — allow them inside the house and on the furniture? I don’t get it. I told my current girlfriend that I will do ANYTHING for her. I’ll give her the sun and the moon. However, owning a dog is a DEAL BREAKER. She’s clear on that, and she SAYS she’s okay with that. But if she starts in on me in a year or two from now, out she goes!

naoma foreman July 17, 2014 at 7:40 pm

Abner: Great post. I too cannot understand how people who have “indoor dogs” can STAND the SMELL. But, perhaps over time a person
can get “used to” something that they no longer smell it. And, I never go
to any home that has an indoor dog.

mfatpony@aol.com July 17, 2014 at 8:07 pm

Abner. Doggers would say you were being controlling but I gave my husband the same ultimatum after his dog was euthanized. And she was never allowed in the house. Dog = divorce. Best to hash these things out before marriage.

mfatpony@aol.com July 17, 2014 at 8:41 pm

S. Spice. It’s called a crate. Of heaven forbid anyone go this low they do make diapers for dogs.
This is a quality of life issue for the humans and possibly the dog. Sometimes it’s time to say goodby. The willingness to live in a home filled with dog waste is also a warning blast for mental illness.
I have been in homes with pets where it was the equivalent of living in a septic tank. I hope you can move soon.

Agree with all ten. And will add an 11th reason dogs are horrible animals. They are rambunctious. The large ones are the worst. They jump and climb on you–bruising your legs with the weight of their heavy paws and thick claws. I literally feel disgusted when I see a dog. Any dog. But large dogs are the grossest.

lily July 18, 2014 at 3:45 pm

nodogs4me I wish I could remember a time without having to deal with these bottom feeding animals.I have only recently finished military duty and cant even enjoy being home.Things were quite before I got shipped over seas but now that Im home it sounds like a kennel.There are no words for how much i hate the dog across the road.This idiot stands in the rain and barks despite having a dog house.It is standing in a pile of trash barking while its equally moronic owners scream over it as i type…this has been going on for 3 hours now.

Whats bad is im going to have to call animal control and pretend to give a damn about the dog and report neglect(which is probably true)because thats the only way they will come out.They sure as hell dont care about the abuse the neighbors are going through.

nodogs4me July 18, 2014 at 3:56 pm

Lily…. I wish you all the best on that. I have over 18 dogs surrounding the property I live on, and even more if you were to count the whole block. It is rare to have complete silence from them. There is one that barks almost continuously for certain hours of the day. And some, take something in particular to cue them off, but I feel what you are going through. It would not do me any good to report anyone for abuse, because there were several dogs a little while back higher up the street that would always try to bite people walking by, and one of my neighbors got fed up going to the convenience store and having to go around a different way, and made the call. She eventually got the problem somewhat solved in that the owners secured the gate, and they couldn’t get out as easily. But no one around here seems to care. especially since they were only dachshunds, My friend had a hard time and had to call multiple times to get that even resolved.. barking would probably be ignored. Maybe reporting abuse would get more response. Good luck anyway and keep us posted.

dogsfromhell July 18, 2014 at 5:41 pm

Lily,
no they don’t re: AC. They are complete advocates for dogs not humans. I had some success with a device called a stop bark that I pointed out the window at the beagles who lived next door to me about 10 years ago. they were only about 15 feet away. its iffy but worth a try

Goldie the dog July 18, 2014 at 8:17 pm

Whoever hates dogs freaking sucks. You think barking is annoying? Have you ever actually listened to people? I don’t think so cause all people do is scream and complain. And I’m not quite sure what “dribbling” is. Are you stupid? Apparently, because dogs actually drool, and not even all of them do. And news flash, people drool too. It’s scientifically prooven that the sight and scent of food causes your mouth to start drooling. And dogs need washed as much as cars? Well how about people who need washed every freaking day. Oh and dogs are disgusting? What about disgusting people who chew with their mouths open, make out in public, spit on the ground, go to strip clubs, get drunk, do drugs, spend time in a community bath with half naked people known as a pool, smoke, and other crap I don’t even want to get into…. Yeah and dogs are only excepted because they’re territorial? Yeah that’s not it. Maybe because they’re adorable an friendly and if you don’t think they are cute then you must be soul-less because almost everyone alive love dogs. And sorry about your cat, but that’s nature. Oh yeah and I forgot to mention that dogs don’t start wars or go hunting or abuse anybody or whose species is overpopulated in this world. Dogs don’t cut down trees and aren’t cause of global warming. They are so innocent it’s not even funny. In china they are stacked in cages and thrown off trucks. You must not care though because you are soul-less. Have fun with your lonely life because no one likes an animal hater.

Goldie the dog July 18, 2014 at 8:29 pm

They render yards unusable? Screw you fricken trash hole because that’s why there’s a thing called a “bag” where you can pick up dog poop. And they wreck stuff? When was the last time you broke something? Or are you just little miss perfect. And do you watch the news? Because dogs don’t wreck the world like retarded people do with their deforestation and bombing places. Yeah and they are ugly? Yeah don’t believe everything you see only. There’s a great new program called photoshop. Even if the dog is actually ugly, not all of them are. And there are a lot of ugly people too, honey. More ugly people then dogs. Hope you have a good life you little dog-hating fag. No one likes dog haters.

Goldie the dog July 18, 2014 at 8:44 pm

Dogsfromhell fricken screw you you freakin trash boat go die in a hole because no indoor likes a dog hater. Dogs can compare to freaking disgusting kids who slobber and poop in diapers because they have a life and soul like everyone else. Not sure why you are telling people to soak dogs with a super soaker because thus cruel you bitch. I’ll soak your face with a super soaker then shove it up your butt so far it’ll come out your mouth. And why are you calling dogs slaves? Do you know why a slave is? Apparently not if you think dogs are slaves. Do slaves work intensively all day? No. And stop calling the dog an it. Your mom is an “it.” Dogs have genders you fag. An everyone else talking about dogs shouldn’t be allowed in a hotel. Yeah they should because they live on this planet too. And everyone saying how when you adopt a dog you are buying a “form of love.” Yeah screw you because they actually are loyal compared to freaking backstabbing bitches known as people. And dogs are viscous and often kill people? What about people who often kill deer and turkey and dogs and cats and cows and elephants and other people and tigers and chickens. Everyone who makes a big deal about dogs killing people sucks because people kill 10 times more dogs then dogs kill people. Millions of dogs are abused everyday and Russians shoot dogs and poison them and chinese people eat dogs and stack them in cages. So don’t complain when one lousy kid is attack by a dog.

Goldie the dog July 18, 2014 at 8:49 pm

Yeah dogs are stupid for taking up the earth’s resources? Yeah they aren’t the cause of war and deforestation and global warming are they? Nope. Why hate them when you can love them? Everyone who hates dogs and animals sucks and has a terrible life. Studies show that animal haters live lonely lives and complain and feel bad about themselves. So screw all animal haters because your just making your own life miserable

Goldie the dog July 18, 2014 at 8:52 pm

mfatpony@aol.com July 18, 2014 at 9:25 pm

Lily. If an animal is being abused it is the right thing to do and call AC. Also I have found that my tablet on the camcorder mode does remarkably well and can be set up in a window facing the offending dog(s).
AC officers will claim that they can’t prove the dog was barking because dogs are territorial and it might just be barking because they are there.
Check the laws on this in your state before recording. Mine is a one party consent . That means if I can reasonably see or hear it from my home or the street it’s all fair. I was also very naive in thinking that if AC came out that something would be done. In most cases you have to file a complaint. Demand that the AC officer let you do so.

mfatpony@aol.com July 18, 2014 at 9:40 pm

It never fails to amaze me that dog owners will justify anything their dogs do. From biting children to killing other dogs or cats. When it comes to their dog it’s just nature. When you catch the dog in the act and shoot it then somehow you should have let the dog finish its act of nature and simply asked the owners to reimburse you for the damage their precious family pet caused.
For reasons I can’t understand whatever a dog does is acceptable and pitbulls doubly so.
Let me make myself clear. I’m not fond or any roaming animal no matter what the species. Domestic pets belong at home with their owners. They should not be allowed to roam or vocalize in such a way that people living nearby have to listen to them. There are more people sick of yapping mutts than just dog haters. Dog lovers themselves don’t enjoy living next door to the constant noise. If your dog or whatever is making my life difficult because you area bad pet/ livestock owner I am going to do something about it. Talking is mostly pointless since anyone with common decency would know that no one wants to deal with their pets. Most dog owners seem completely unable to control their dogs. Which in my opinion they become so hostile when anyone complains.
I disliked dogs. I now hate dogs becasue of lousy dog owners who have made my life hell.

Yes they DO render yards unacceptable by stinking them and the neighbor’s up to high heaven when the weather gets above 50° F or there is no wind.
A dog hater is not an animal hater, but an intellectual.

Dogs wouldn’t be so bad if you pulled their vocal chords out and taught them to use a litter box.

mfatpony@aol.com July 18, 2014 at 10:37 pm

Yes Catlover but dogs still bite, kill and maim and they can do so without vocal cords.
Pulling the vocal cords out of pitbulls wouldn’t bother them a bit.

Adder July 18, 2014 at 11:27 pm

My best friend wants me to visit her house but she has 3 dogs. I’ve made it very clear that I can’t stand dog filth. I don’t understand how people let them in their bed with them. It’s disgusting. I love my friend but I refuse to visit a home where dogs are allowed where people sleep. Not to mention the last time I visited a friend with a dog I awkwardly sat on the couch while she let her mutt lick her in the mouth for literally like five minutes. I am convinced that there is an undiagnosed disorder that accompanies doggers. They have such a unique and easily recognizable mindset. And the fact that dog ownership has nearly reached religious levels doesn’t help…

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 12:49 am

@mfatpony
Oh yea you’re right – the only good dog is a dead dog.
AND antidoggers are not animal haters (generalization), but intellectuals.

drake July 19, 2014 at 12:52 am

@Goldie the Dog,you’re adorable. FYI, your use of the word “Fag” alienates your fellow gay dog lovers from a person like you. And there are a lot of dog people in the LGBT community btw who are probably better dog owners and people than you are. As a straight conservative man myself, I never use such word when debating with my fellow gay colleagues on issues we may disagree with because I don’t have to prove my point with such vulgarity. But I guess you wouldn’t mind because you prefer the company of an animal to a person in which case people are too good for you. The wars, greed, and endless crimes you witness daily on the news are brought about by other human beings as well. Agreed. But should you use the broadbrush to paint everyone in a single color? No one in this world is perfect which includes you yourself but there are good people in it that you are too blind to make notice. Perhaps the greatest human tyrant you ever faced in your life is you yourself. Bounded by your ignorance of hate and limiting your fellowship with that of an animal because you allowed yourself to give up finding the one person that truly matters.He or she is out there but you have no interest in going to where that person may be because your dog’s leash is restricting you from traversing various areas crossed by all sorts of people. I know a friend who was born autistic. He couldn’t interact with people early on. He was bullied and teased for his social awkwardnes. Thus, he began life as a loner in school. Nonetheless he strived to find those he can connect with including a girlfriend he just proposed to this year. He is now a successful entrepreneur working to help his own community to give back. That’s what you call a real relationship. Anyways buddy or madam, I can assure you the typical visitors/supporters of this website has never killed or even hurt a dog without good reason. Nor would you find pictures of dead dogs despite the website’s name and purpose in contrary to many Anti-cat websites which display pictures of feline roadkill and feral cats shot, strangled, and beaten along with sadistic comments from people rooting for the killing of defenseless kittens. If you think dogs should maul all people, does that mean you should see yourself being mauled for you too were born and still are a human being? Advocacy of real violence isn’t who I actually am nor are the typical visitors/fans of this site. I would actually try to save someone if I can from danger regardless who that person is whether he/she is a doglover/hater/indifferent and even someone who has done the grevous crime of killing cats. As for that study of animal lovers being more healthy and less lonely, I have to agree with the results of that research as well. But guess what? Animal lovers is a general term that includes lovers and caretakers of cat,bird,horse,fish, turtles, etc. Many of us have our fair share of taking care of animals. May not be dogs as you would like but many of us do have other kinds of non-human creatures in our hearts. If you can’t comprehend my statement, then I can assume you shed more tears for any dead dog than you would for a beloved family member that had passes away….

What I dont get is when some people on findagrave.com will put a puppy or dog token aka virtual flower on a child’s grave (or often for an adult). What makes them assume that person loved dogs? I don’t even put cats on ppl’s graves!..

naoma foreman July 19, 2014 at 1:34 am

I am in Paris now where one of the world’s most famous grave yards is.
I had not seen any “animal” gravestones for people but a few have bigger than LIFE SIZED statues — men NUDE and fully exposed. I thought “wow, pretty arrogant.” None of them are “over endowed.” Many famous people are buried here — famous composers, etc. But there is one where a man’s gravestone is a full-life sized bronze replica of him lying down. It is famous in that the crotch is rubbed shiny because rumor has it — women do that for “fertility.” He is in a uniform.
Also in another area of town is an ANIMAL graveyard where people bury pets. Rin Tin Tin is buried there and even a man’ HORSE!

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 1:52 am

@naomi
Yep that sounds like the typical French even in death vain as felines and having the rep for being smelly (like dogs). ;-)

naoma foreman July 19, 2014 at 2:00 am

Dear Cat Lover: I live here 3 months each year and find the French as to all I have met and even some I have not met to be friendly, not vain and certainly not “smelly.” I know a few authors, poets and classical musicians with whom I have made friends and attend their poetry readings, music concerts, etc. People are always willing to help me if I cannot find something or am “lost.” And everyone I have come in contact with speaks ENGLISH and probably another language. I do not speak French because it is a difficult language. My husband does.

naoma foreman July 19, 2014 at 2:07 am

Dear Cat Lover: Just one little question. Have you ever been to France? I’ve been all over the world and have met many people. In Bangkok a young woman on her way to work saw me looking at a map — yes, I was lost, and she insisted in taking me to the place I was seeking — out of her way it was. You give what you get anywhere: Be friendly, smile, “bonjour” “au ravoir” etc. and you will meet smiles and friendly people who will help you.

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 2:09 am

Naoma, I am French actually and speak it but not smelly either. You’re lucky to be there. I’ve studied The Revolution extensively and can totally understand why Marie Antoinette’s dog wasn’t allowed to go with her.

naoma foreman July 19, 2014 at 2:26 am

Cat Lover: Thanks for your post! Yes. I live here 3 months each year and have a friend’s apartment — huge terrace with trees and 2 picnic
tables. It is on the 6th floor and the street below is quiet. And in all
my time here I have heard one dog barking and if I yell to be quiet they
keep it quiet — but do not care to find the reason. Rarely happens!!!

Why don’t we create a separate section to put all the dogger comments -for all the world to see; sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy. That would be better than deleting them.
I think Goldie would win the Nobel.
Kidding aside, we can see how dangerous these people are -willing to murder only because we “hate” it’s dog.
I wish Goldie and it’s dogs lived next to me; I would look forward to unleashing hell on it and it’s shithounds….the two mutts next door whimper and hide when they see me with my “deterrents”….

nodogs4me July 19, 2014 at 9:17 am

Wow…. I missed a lot. But it just goes to show how OBNOXIOUS and TOXIC most dog lovers are. Calling people names, people whom they know nothing about is rude and does cross the line. I, and most people here, have never abused an animal, and it just happens we don’t like dogs. Wow… amazing that you can hate someone that much for that. I like snow, used to work with it, made it, groomed it, and live in a part of the country where it was part of the industry and people loved it. But guess what? A lot of people hate snow. Just a difference in how people are and think. Do I think everyone that hates snow sucks, and are evil because they hate God’s creation? We are all people with differences in this world. The problem is that dog owners have no right to push their beloved mutts on those of us who would rather not do company with them, but yet they continue to force upon us, something we just don’t want a part of. Things were not that way when I was growing up, There was called something like respect, respect for your neighbor, Nowadays it seems non existent, It seemed when you visited someone with a dog in the past, they would understand if you didn’t want to interact and they usually only had one. Now, people with dogs rarely have one, and they are allowed to do things dogs would not have been allowed to do before. Now people treat dogs with higher esteem than other humans. There really IS something wrong with that.

I edited out Goldie the dog’s comment to show once again just how very hateful, aggressive and even violent dog worshippers are prone to being.

Note to Goldie: We hate dogs on this site not people. Slurs, the *F* word and other vile language are clearly stated on the home page. You will need to demonstrate appropriate dialogue boundaries when participating or be flagged from the site.

dogsfromhell July 19, 2014 at 10:01 am

Hey Goldie, no loneliness going on here. I suspect thats your gig. Maybe if you didnt have a dog you’d be without contact with any mammal includng humans

Your reasoning is flawed but lets just cover one sentence of your lunancy

Oh yeah and I forgot to mention that dogs don’t start wars or go hunting or abuse anybody
They simply maim, maul, attack and kill humans especially children, the elderly, disabled and other vulnerable populations

or whose species is overpopulated in this world.
Our earth is infested with this species of vermin. They are a major man made mistake that the rest of us are now cursed with.

Dogs don’t cut down trees and aren’t cause of global warming.
Huh? Dogs are responsible approximaetly 1/3 of all the pollution in our storm and municipal water. They foul parks, beaches and even protected lands. At this rate our earth and safe water will be rendered unsafe in no time because of these shit machines.

They are so innocent it’s not even funny

My mother is French and she doesn’t smell. And she has never worn deodorant. I know that may sound nasty but I think the body gets used to it and will adapt. So the more you use it the more you need it.(?) But I am not kidding my mother has never smelled. She doesn’t wear any fragrance either

She also hates dogs hahaha!

Hey Goldie is easy fodder and probably gone. Its nice to have them validate just how crazy dog people are from time to time. If they get too obsessive ( and we’ve had a few)we can always flag them

dogsfromhell July 19, 2014 at 10:42 am

Dogs can be debarked aka have their vocal cords removed however they are still capable of howling and make other gut wrenching disturbing sounds Even when its not hot outside dog can still render an area uninhabitable. I had two large shit machines next door till a few days ago. Before that a large dog lived there for about 5 years. I have always been a successful gardener but have never been able to grow much in my current yard. Even though I have raised cedar wood beds for my vegetables which are about a foot high, its probably for the best. I only recently started researching the contaminants and disease in dog feces. That HAS to have an effect on land within close proximity. Imagine the impact of two large crap o matics over two years!

You can tell us how much you hate dogs or love dogs. You can disagree with other peoples opinion. But life is too short to be evil and attack other people. If you’re rude, I’ll ban you. Otherwise, have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation!

mfatpony@aol.com July 19, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Cat lover I don’t actually wish all dogs dead. Have known a few good ones. The trouble is people pick a dog like a fashion accessory or in the current climate any dog from a rescue. Once upon a time people did not let their dogs bark 24/7. And yards were kept picked up as a matter of pride in home ownership. Most rentals had strict no pet policies and even ones that did had a size limit along with huge pet deposits. No one would have thought to bring their dog to grocery stores although out here in rural NM it was not uncommon to see a working dog laying at its owners feet in some of the older family owned diners while the ranchers hashed over a days work. Somehow those dogs were never offensive as their demeanor was that of service dogs.
One of the reasons dogs act out so badly is the failure of the owner to be an effective leader to them. All animals have some social structure built into their natural instincts. Failure to exert firm leadership . Probably a lot of the insecurity we seen in dog behavior is from owners who christen their mutts with human emotions and thinking. Add that thinking to the insatiable need to own an aggressive breed and you can see how things are only going to get worse.

dogsfromhell July 19, 2014 at 5:08 pm

But I must clarify Cat Lover. She is Canadian French which the Parisians consider peasants lol and “not really” French. They are from the Quebec/Maine area. They spoke French in the home and my mother learned English when she went to Catholic school. They refused to teach us bc we were supposed to assimilate LOL. More importantly, I don’t remember anybody ever having a dog except the mutt my sister dumped on my mother when she went to college.

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 5:13 pm

@fatpony,
Lol I don’t either but I thought that’d go without saying. Like my childhood dogs of course and abuse stories done to them bother me. The other day I found a show on a golden retriever named Crystal whose owner shot her to death (15 times) in front of his little boy all because she knocked over a little girl and and almost killed the neighbor’s dog. Now I don’t like dogs but that’s just sick.

That is exaclty what happend to the little cat on my porch. Only I was there and the dog owner I”m sure was at home sucking on a beer while thinking about how wonderful his dog was. That was the last straw in my life for tolerating dogs on any level. I have acutal satifaction in knowing my husband finshed one off and a neighbor over the wetlands got the second while it was charging up his driveway to attack his dog again.

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 6:22 pm

I said this before on here and I really mean this… Thereis only one animal cant stand (besides spiders) and that is canines. I even love rats and snakes.
There are times I feel like a hypocrite as a vegetarian and animal rights activist but when I’m being mentally tortured by somebody’s barking dog or hear stories like yours I understand myself again.

dogsfromhell July 19, 2014 at 6:27 pm

The pit owner appears to be smiling at times. The cat rescuer/owner looks like he is limping and could have been injured as a result of trying to save the cat. Pit owner seems submissive to the psycho dog, Just my observations.

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 6:30 pm

@dogsfromhell, TY for the info on French Canadians. I was just wondering about that last night. My great grandmother is from France and I was the best French speaker in class ( besides being a little slow almost fluent). Once I learned where Grandma was from the mystery was solved.

This is off topic but my mother tells me all the genealogy information about the Canadian French is housed at the Hotel Frontenac in Quebec. Not sure why. We used to have a participant on here whose father is a Canadian French genealogy researcher. If you wanted her contact info I could look for it and email you privately

Pit owner seems submissive to the psycho dog, Just my observations.(Dogsfromhell)

I’ve seen that more than once when a dog is attacking or killing small livestock. It’s like they’re stuck watching a show on National Geographic.
Most dog owners are not dog lovers. They are in love with the idea of some captive creature that will fill their lives with unconditional love. The dog on the other hand is just a canine who will , given the chance and lack of training act like one. What they think they have is an illusion.
I also like spiders. Have little yellow stripe lizards living under my front porch , coyotes , skunks and other assorted natural wildlife . None of it gives me the grief loose and barking dogs do.

nodogs4me July 19, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Cat Lover/ I am also someone who is very fond of cats, and it is not anything to do with my disdain of dogs. I have a rabbit as well. I agree that we are not animal haters just because we dislike dogs.

Oh God yes, they stink up a yard. When I was younger we went many years with our immediate neighbor’s never having a dog, but they were old and passed on. The new couple who purchased the house next door had two dogs. One big drooling shit machine Great Dane, and a large poodle who was a little older. I never forget how what was once a beautiful rose garden for real and all kinds of beautiful flowers that the old man had painstakingly nurtured for years, was destroyed by the new owners, and it became a barren dog toilet. In the winter a lot of the shit remained and in spring when the snow melted and all was exposed, it was the raunchiest smell you could even imagine, And now we had to deal it ruining our picnic area, and the flies it spawned. Never mind the barking at anything in our yard. So yes, they do render a yard unusable.

Cat Lover July 19, 2014 at 7:05 pm

TY but idk what good it’d do me being she was from France, France. Anyway I am not much of a family person tbh. Water is thicker than blood to me.
Reason being…
(Well not the main one but this didn’t help)
My parents have this mutt who barks at his own live-in family members very loud and viciously. When I tried to correct the dog i got namecalled by the yyounger siblings. Also, when he bit me, drawing blood on my foot, after he woke up from a nap just BC my foot was there I wasn’tallowed to punish it.

mfatpony@aol.com July 19, 2014 at 7:06 pm

Since dogs are not known to pick up and dispose of their own waste it is only dog owners who are polluting our groundwater and waterways with dog sewage. Which it seems is not much different that leaving human waste lay all over yards,parks, walkways and other common areas.
If you were to start disposing of or using your backyard as a bathroom how long do you think it would be before code enforcement was at your door. And yet the most anyone seems to do is run ad campaings at taxpayer expense to remind doggie owners there is no poop fairy.

The comments DO demonstrate the mental instability and social dysfunction of the average dog apologist. Alas, their numbers are legion, and their ranks will not soon be vanquished. What to do? What to do? Suffer, suffer their obdurate insolence, and find the certain comfort in being in the right.

LOL
:-P
I cannot wrap my head around the enigma that is a dog AND cat person although I have several friends like that. Now that I think about it the good majority of people I’ve had real probs with throughout my life were dog people. Could be coincidence…
Growing up my dog-loving Mom forced dog after dog on me. No wonder I had identity issues. As a child I had no idea who I was.
Do dog ppl force things on ppl? I see a pattern but that could be human nature.

dogsfromhell July 20, 2014 at 6:05 am

I can look out my window and see the yard next door which currently has no grass to speak of bc of the shit machines. I once observed the dog crapping right next to their lounge chair only to have company arrive a few minutes later as they sat right next to it entertaining. They must become immune to the smell. Occasionally they would come out and mow the crap into the dirt which was worse for me bc it could/would fly over to my yard…. yes aerial dog shit..How can people be so crude?

Talking dog for sale….
A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house:
‘Talking Dog For Sale ‘He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
‘You talk?’ he asks. ‘Yep,’ the Lab replies. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’
The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so… I told the CIA.
In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders,because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’ ‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running…. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down.I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.’ ‘I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. ‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says. ‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’
‘Because he’s a Bullshitter. He’s never been out of the yard’

To Realist: Interesting post. About not liking kids. We had one and she was raised without spanking, or hitting and was always told the truth. At 3 she asked: “Are Mothers and Dads Santa?” “yes.” (but of course do not tell your friends who are not raised with the truth). She grew up and went to Oxford and now lives and works in New York. I think she is a

Cat Lover…… No. they don’t ban the skyscraper., but they do not make it very easy for a child, or anyone else for that matter to be able to fall or have easy access to make a jump. Point about pit bulls and I have said it more than once on here, is they are like leaving a child in the vicinity of a loaded weapon. Yet I have read numerous articles that state the fact that laws regarding pit bulls are being relaxed instead of increased. at least here in the US. All the stupid ass bleeding hearts groups that promote pits, should be the ones getting punished.

Now, we don’t know all the details in this most recent death, but it does mention the uncle crated the dogs before the child arrived, but if they left the dogs where someone, (including the child) were able to let them out…. well they were not very secure than, were they?? People need to stop standing up for keeping these killing machines alive, and bottom line, make the breed illegal to own. There will still be some illegal ones here and there, but it will reduce the number of killings. Any shelter that would rehome them, could also be held liable for manslaughter, That is the only way this madness will stop. Except the bleeding hearts have expanded to become more a majority now, and I don’t think there is a chance in hell at passing any stricter laws around here.

mfatpony@aol.com July 20, 2014 at 3:56 pm

Willco. Dogs and cats left to wander can very easily come into infected fleas from wildlife this time of year. I’m not sure the flea drops could prevent this 100%. The warnings go out every year at this time up here and every year there is at least one case from a dog or cat dragging the infected flea home. Another reason I don’t want someone elses mangy dog or cat near my home.

Nodogsforme, Not to sound crass the details of pit killing toddler are pretty much uniform. What facisnates me are the comments. Within 8 someone was concerned that pits were taking a bad rap and these might not have been pitbulls at all but simply short haired stocky dogs.
Here is a hint for all stupid dog or any pet owners. If you have small caged animals. or you crate your dogs and cats for company. You can purchase the zip ties to double secure the crate or cages. They are cheap and snip off in seconds. It is also best that you crate your animals in a room and shut the door
My only question is why did the adults have to step into the master bedroom for a few minutes ? Quite honeslty most of us crate our aniamls to protect them or to avoid having them pesterr guests. NOT because they are going to savage the first thing that they can get to. I hope there is a real investigation into this casue it all sounds like so much baloney to me.

Parents who have a pitbull would be the equivalent of parents having windows on the 14th floor with no safety screen or window guards. In both cases the parents are liable for the ultimate injury or death of their child.
My overall view on pits is that they and all the ‘ crosses’ should be surrendered , humanely euthanized and the leftover meat burnt to a crisp and chopped into bits and buried as deep as possible. And any refugees that turn up the same. Sadly that will not happen. Instead it is going to take I’m guessing hundreds of deaths at the mouths of these monsters before people get the idea they have been duped.

Passing laws that allow prosecution of the owners to be charged with assault right up to manslaughter or worse. Along with any shelter or rescue that passed a dog on over the age of 6 months. Apply this to all dogs and see how long the owners of vicious monsters want to keep that liability. The laws should also require the animal be destroyed if it attacks other pets. You’ll see real dog fences and kennels along with muzzles and leashes even if they still insist on keeping old Killer.
If shelters or rescues insist on handing out these loaded weapons all dogs and cats being adopted should be subject not to just chipping but DNA. Hey most horse registries use it to prevent fraud in registration. That way when there is a mangled human and everyone is either lying or the dog owner is swearing it weren’t their little puppy there is evidence that points the finger . Or at least a good chance of it.
I promise you the one thing the owners of vicious dogs don’t want is undeniable responsibility and real criminal prosecution.

I always assume doggers as the enemy until proven otherwise…I’m usually never disappointed.
It has nothing to do with hating humans beings because doggers barely have any human qualities in the true sense of the word….the pitters seem to be some sort of reptilian mutant……no offense to reptiles

You people are absolutely hilarious.
Dogs are wild animals, and just like cats they require training.
If you are unable to train the animal it is your fault. You are too stupid, unable to understand a simple creature.

Pitbulls do not attack people. Pitbulls were bred to be dog aggressive. They are bred to fight and kill other dogs, they will do this most effectively if left in the hands of a fool or novice. Its not too surprising then that this is exactly what happens with.

I own dogs and cats. The kittens I currently have require a lot more looking after and pampering than my mature dogs who do their own thing all day.
Dogs are heavily influenced by their owners, and most people are too stupid to be pack leader.

dogsfromhell July 21, 2014 at 4:58 am

“Dogs are wild animals”
Now THAT’S hilarious. Have you been reading the encyclopedia again? Dogs are man made hybrid genetic mistakes, the result of humans meddling with nature.

“If you are unable to train the animal it is your fault. You are too stupid, unable to understand a simple creature”
Hmmmm….Perhaps you can tame some other “wild” animals like a tiger or squirrel and have your own TV show. You can wear a clown suit.

“Pitbulls do not attack people”
Apparently you don’t read. Ask the parents of the 4 year old toddler who was just killed at his uncle’s house while eating ice cream. Check out our section called “Post a Pit Bull Attack for more information.

“Pitbulls were bred to be dog aggressive”
I guess they arent smart enough to know toddlers aren’t dogs. Neither are you for that matter.

“They are bred to fight and kill other dogs”
Sounds like a great family pet. Welcome to the neighborhood

they will do this most effectively if left in the hands of a fool or novice”
That would be the majority of pit bull owners. See Willko’c comment

“Its not too surprising then that this is exactly what happens “
Nope. Or that they kill children.

“Dogs are heavily influenced by their owners, and most people are too stupid to be pack leader”
Anyone who aspires to become the “pack leader”, LMAO, of a crap and bark machine qualifies as dull. Thanks for clarifying.

willko July 21, 2014 at 7:28 am

Pedro, your delusions are even more hilarious. Dogs aren’t “wild animals”, they’re so inbred and stupid they would die or become prey in the wild. The only “fool” seems to you since you have to provide food and shelter for your “pack” of shithounds. Wild animals provide for themselves. Proclaiming yourself as “pack leader” only shows us you’re only slightly less inbred and stupid than your fleabags, but I guess for you that’s quite an accomplishment.

Here’s another story of an infant being killed by a dog American Staffordshire terrier aka pit bull.

If pitbulls were a handled like the recalls on children’s toys , cribs and car seats parents who insist on having one in their home would have received a steel muzzle in the mail by now.
Companies recall a product over one incident yet with pitbulls eating babies and toddlers there seems to be no fix. In fact parents who would rail and sue a company where their child swallowed a part seem perfectly content to allow their children play with what amounts to a shark with legs.

nodogs4me July 21, 2014 at 6:52 pm

Very true fat pony.. I just don’t get it. It makes me so sick when I get on social media and see people putting babies and small children with these things to promote others to do likewise. And you’re right, it only takes ONE unfortunate incident with anything else, and the lawsuits and product condemnations are flying.

mfatpony@aol.com July 21, 2014 at 7:59 pm

I want to amend that to ALL dogs. Cats allowed near small children should have their claws clipped.
Reality is that children under 3 cannot view a dog or cat as a living creature and cannot therefore attach danger to it. Much like you wouldn’t let a toddler play unsupervised near an open flame. Anyone with even a basic knowledge in child development would know that. I’ve given riding lessons to very young children. One absolute is their abiltiy to follow a short series of instructions. Unless they can preform a simple series of tasks they aren’t able to understand even the most basic skills for controlling a pony. And that’s on a lead line.
When I see someone telling their baby to be gentle with the dog or cat its delusional nonsense. The nature of a small child is to explore, grab, grasp, mouth , poke and pull. A pitbull in the room is like a bomb waiting to go off. People who blame the child for provoking give the rights of a child to the dog and not even the rights or value of a dog to the child.

willko July 21, 2014 at 8:00 pm

That’s what I think of when I’m driving or cycling thru a residential area and see people walking their dog(s). Sort of a grim/blank countenance. Doing their “doody”….
Scary

mfatpony@aol.com July 21, 2014 at 8:25 pm

Willco we could go with a Day of the Triffids. The way the doggers screech when they find out you don’t like their dogs is pretty close to the noise made by the aliens upon detecting an uninfected human.

This came in on a site today — unasked for.
“I don’t have human children, so I don’t know what it’s like to take care of them 24/7. But, I imagine there are similarities. I would go to the end of the earth for my dogs, as they do for me. I didn’t give birth to them and they come with four legs and fur.

How about you? Do you call yourself a pet parent?

*******************************

Barf time. Now we have “pet parents.” I am glad this person admits
she “did not give birth” to her dogs. People like this are rather sick and treat dogs like children. UGH.

naoma foreman July 22, 2014 at 2:16 am

Any comments from the writers on this site for “the realist?”

nodogs4me July 22, 2014 at 5:41 am

Naoma.. I am not currently seeing the post from Realist. I saw it in my email the other day, but to be honest I forgot what it stated.

Regarding pet parents……. I have a couple of folks I know that have tried every darned thing to have a child, and have been unsuccessful. Something even went wrong when they tried to adopt. and I never knew anyone who wanted children as much as these two did.

Sadly, they have resigned themselves to being a parent of a dog, and they called this mutt their child, and treat is as though it were a child, but in their case…. I have some compassion. They are nice people. But they dealt with their pain, in a way, that gives them some comfort. For that reason, when they call their dog, their child. I still cringe, but do let is go for the fact that they really do need this dog for comfort. Yes there is counseling, and I am certain they have sought some, but it would not be unlike a counselor nowadays to suggest a pet. At any rate, in this rare exception. I do accept that they need this dog. It is not a vicious type at least. I still cringe at mutts and would try to stay away from their home because the dog is all over the furniture, but who am I to say if this gives them happiness in their heart.

naoma foreman July 22, 2014 at 5:58 am

Dear “no dogs for me” – I can sympathize with someone who wants a child. But a dog is not a substitute for one. People can get a foster
child or adopt or something like that. People equate dogs with children, but as I always say: “A child may need toilet training (like a dog?) but
children do grow up, go to school — maybe get a scholarship, and then find a profitable career.” A dog will always be a dog — and you have to
pick up after it and it licks your face. AAAARGH. We chose to have one child who did get a scholarship (to Oxford — and we live in USA), so our child was as remote from being like a dog as ….fill it in. But thanks for your comment!!!!

nodogs4me July 22, 2014 at 6:12 am

Oh no, Naoma. I agree with you on this. A dog will always be a dog. And the face licking really grosses me out, But with these people, I have a little more understanding as to why they treat their dog as their child, though I know it will never be one. I know they tried an adoption once and I don’t know the details completely but they spent a lot of money on a child that all of a sudden wasn’t available to be adopted. I know they were heartbroken, because they had a whole room prepared and were so looking forward to it. I would rather see them try again, that to devote parenthood to a mutt, but I can’t tell them that.

I could not for the life of me, share my dinner plates with a dog, allow them to sleep in me bed. I don’t even want them in my yard. I, like yourself Naoma, always have found dog smell to be the most revolting nauseating of odors. and cannot find a way to get past it. I also find them to be so gross as an animal to begin with. I do not visit those people nor do I anyone else with dogs, if I know they have them.

naoma foreman July 22, 2014 at 6:18 am

to: no dogs for me: I attend various meetings and am quite annoyed when people think they can just bring their lolling tongue dog. Once a woman had a dog and insisted I pet it. As it grew nearer (when I signed up there were to be no dogs) its tongue came out, tried to lick me and I felt a horrible nausea reaction. Had to excuse myself and I left. Another time at a meeting I was told “no dogs would come.” Alas, a woman brought one and its head reached the food table where it began to lick plates. I said I was “allergic” and had to leave but the woman took the dog out to her car.

dogsfromhell July 22, 2014 at 7:43 am

“I don’t have human children, so I don’t know what it’s like to take care of them 24/7″

They sure don’t and that statement is so telling. They want the benefits of being a parent but not the responsibility so they adopt a dog.That way they can pretend to play house and imagine unconditional love while the thing slobbers all over them and anticipates their arrival home. But if they kept their child locked up all day while they went to work and were just weekend parents for attention down at the park Children’s Services would be at the door. Idiots.

dogsfromhell July 22, 2014 at 7:48 am

But after it licked the plates, damage done. That’s beyond repulsive.

what-happened-to-america July 22, 2014 at 7:48 am

Sigh…the more people I meet, the more it has become clear that this dog-owning thing has become BEYOND an epidemic! As soon as I learn they either own a dog or have gushed over someone else’s dog, (which happens 90 percent of the time) my ‘view’ of them always goes down several points, no matter how much I respect them otherwise!

We are at a point where we have to assume everyone has a dog, unless they state that they don’t! (And the ones who don’t, seem to always plan to get one! :P) Hello? Other kinds of pets exist, you know! If you feel you MUST nurture something, but don’t want kids, it doesn’t HAVE to be a dog!

Our daughter had no dog growing up. She had hamsters and gerbils. The hamster gave birth and she took the babies (soon as they could be out in public) door to door in our neighborhood to find them homes. And, although I was quite amazed she found people who would ADOPT one– no charge. And she had rules for their care (she was about 9).

Northern Maine (my area) will be getting its very first off-leash dog park soon…VERY thankfully not in my hometown! (surprised that hasn’t happened several years back, since the town that’s getting it has a definite dog-owning pandemic!) It should be great for that once-great shopping town, to become the literal piece of CRAP it has become in the last 15 years…and that dog park will surely seal the deal!

Oh God.. Naoma.. I have had similar things happen, and it just can’t be. Back late last fall, an acquaintance (I won’t use the word friend at this point), had surgery, and I was out of town and couldn’t see her in the hospital, where there would not have been any dogs. Upon her release I was in her home area and thought I may stop by for a short hello, since she said she would be out on the porch relaxing. I knew she had dogs, which is one of the reasons I have avoided her place to begin with, but for some reason, felt that outside I wouldn’t have to sit on doggie smell furniture, so I dropped over for a few minutes. I was sitting on a plastic chair outside, and one of her smaller dogs kept jumping up with a springlike fashion trying to get attention, and with her surgery she could not really bend over as easily to accommodate the hyper thing it was. Then she said to me, pick him up, he wants YOU to pet him. I was like wtf, how is it that these people KNOW exactly what their stinking mutts want. I don’t like to pet people’s dogs, I don’t want to be around them, and I don’t as a rule visit people with dogs for that reason.. I have not been back there since November. And dogs licking plates……????? No way, not negotiation here either.

DAYTON, Ohio —Dayton homicide detectives were back out at a home on Riverside Drive Monday afternoon collecting evidence.

Dog attacks, kills 7-month-old baby in Dayton

A dog has attacked and killed a 7-month-old baby in Dayton.
More

Jonathan Quarles Jr., 7 months old, was allegedly attacked inside the home and killed by a dog.

Watch this story

WLWT was there as detectives walked out carrying two large cages, a thick chain and a collar.

They wouldn’t discuss details of the attack. Neither would the baby’s relatives.

“I don’t have all the details but the one thing I know is the family needs prayer right now,” Michael Harris said. “Just pray for us.”

Police said the baby lives in Indianapolis but was spending the day in Dayton at his step-grandmother’s house when her dog attacked him.

The next door neighbor called 911.

“She just knocked on my door, banging on my door. She had a baby in her hand and the baby’s not breathing. We need you to get here now,” the caller said.

An American Staffordshire terrier was registered to the address, police said. It resembles a pit bull.

WLWT did some digging and learned the dog has attacked before.

A beagle named Reba was bitten last month when her owner walked her in front of the Riverside Drive home.

“Before my daughter knew what was happening, a pit bull-mix charged out of the yard, got a hold of Reba and had her on the ground biting her,” Patricia Crickmore said. “She had a total of 11 stitches because there was three bite marks and they had to shave her. She was on pain medication and antibiotics for two weeks.”

The U.S. Post Office confirmed a dog charged at a mailman outside the same address on April 25. He used his mailbag to fight off the attack.

Relatives at the home said they weren’t aware of other attacks.

“I don’t know about any other attacks but, like I said, just pray for them. Pray for them,” Harris said.

WLWT tried getting answers from the Animal Resource Center in Montgomery County as to why this dog was never taken away, but calls were not returned.

The Montgomery County Coroner has ruled the death accidental.

Dayton police continue to investigate. So far no charges have been filed.

No, I Do Not Want to Pet Your Dog

They’re lounging in our offices and licking us at our cafés. It’s time to take America back.

By Farhad Manjoo

Dogs have taken over America.
Photo by Claro Cortes/Reuters

The other day I walked into my gym and saw a dog. A half-dozen people were crowding around him, cooing and petting. He was a big dog, a lean and muscular Doberman with, I later learned, the sort of hair-trigger bark you’d prize if you wanted to protect a big stash of gold bullion.

“This is Y.,” the dog’s owner said. No explanation was offered for the pooch’s presence, as if it were the most natural thing in the world to have a dog in a place usually reserved for human beings. Huh, I thought.

The dog came up to me, because in my experience that’s what dogs do when you don’t want them to come up to you. They get up real close, touching you, licking you, theatrically begging you to respond. The dog pushed his long face toward my hand, the canine equivalent of a high five. And so—in the same way it’s rude to leave a high-fiver hanging, especially if the high-fiver has big teeth and a strong jaw—I was expected to pet him. I ran my hand across his head half-heartedly. I guess I was fairly sure he wouldn’t snap and bite me, but stranger things have happened—for instance, dogs snapping and biting people all the time.

Advertisement
Anyway, happily, I survived.

But wait a second. Come on! Why was this dog here? And why was no one perturbed that this dog was here? When this beast was barking at passersby through the window as we were all working out, why did no one go, Hey, just throwing this out there, should we maybe not have this distracting, possibly dangerous animal by the free weights?

No one was asking because no one could ask. Sometime in the last decade, dogs achieved dominion over urban America. They are everywhere now, allowed in places that used to belong exclusively to humans, and sometimes only to human adults: the office, restaurants, museums, buses, trains, malls, supermarkets, barber shops, banks, post offices. Even at the park and other places where dogs belong, they’ve been given free rein. Dogs are frequently allowed to wander off leash, to run toward you and around you, to run across the baseball field or basketball court, to get up in your grill. Even worse than the dogs are the owners, who seem never to consider whether there may be people in the gym/office/restaurant/museum who do not care to be in close proximity to their dogs. After all, what kind of monster would have a problem with a poor innocent widdle doggie? It’s a dog’s world. We just live in it. And it’s awful. Bad dogs!

Not everyone agrees with me on this issue. Some people—or maybe even most people, since dogs, like zombies, have an insidious way of turning opponents into allies—love that dogs abound. If you adore dogs but aren’t able to keep one, the world is now your dog park, with pooches everywhere to pet and nuzzle and otherwise brighten your day.

I am not a dog person. (Could you tell?) It’s not that I actively despise mutts; I just don’t have much time for them, in the same way I don’t have time for crossword puzzles or Maroon 5. Now imagine if, everywhere you went, whatever you did, Maroon 5 was always playing and everyone pretended it was totally normal—that this permanent new situation was not in any way offensive, distracting, dirty, and potentially dangerous.

OK, bad example.

But here’s my problem: There’s now a cultural assumption that everyone must love dogs. Dog owners are rarely forced to reckon with the idea that there are people who aren’t enthralled by their furry friends, and that taking their dogs everywhere might not be completely pleasant for these folks.

Example: If you’re in the office and someone has brought her dog in for the day—because, fun!—the dog is sure to come around you, get between your legs, rub against your thigh, take a nap on your feet, or do some other annoying thing.

If the dog’s owner notices these antics, I can promise you she won’t apologize for the imposition. Nor will she ask you if you mind her dog doing what he’s doing. Nor will she pull on its leash, because there won’t be a leash, this being an office, where dogs are as welcome as Wi-Fi and free coffee.

Seems to be more chaos, destruction and psychosis associated with dogs than any kind of therapeutic value. Those ideal images of man and his noble beast seem only to exist in dog food commercials and contemporary Americana. Most of the time they’re barking, shitting/pissing on everything, polluting,tearing stuff up, demanding attention or, as others have commented, biting and killing.
And of course there’s the large segment of the population of dog-lovers who seem to be clinically insane -sociopaths, narcissists, paranoids and psychopaths. I think the Zombie Apocalypse would actually be more fun than the reality of dealing with these assholes and their fleabags every day.

willko July 22, 2014 at 7:22 pm

Yeah, read the summary, sounds oddly interesting. While I like to kid about Zombies, if society/civilization were to collapse feral dogs would be a problem. That could very well be a reality. I don’t trust dogs or their owners as it is now and view the current dog-obsessed culture as a sign. Not a conspiracy theory, just an observation I pay attention to. AS you well know, if your going for a walk in Belen or some of the other south valley areas you better be carrying, packs of dogs everywhere. All the data that DFH and yourself, as well as all the other contributors post, all points to the detrimental effects of the exploding dog population. Killings/mauling are up, canine fecal matter/e.coli pollution is up, nuisance barking is up. pet industry corporate profits are up, and dog-owner IQs are down, a recipe for disaster.

StopTheDogMania July 23, 2014 at 8:33 am

So I am getting frustrated by something and I’d like to share with you guys. I am noticing more and more dog commercials on TV. Every channel seems to have those type of commercial regardless if they are selling dog food, cars, shoes you name it. What frustrates me lately is the yahoo web site. I like to use and been using yahoo web site for years to check the news because my email is yahoo and it’s easier for me. Lately, I get lots of dog stories and adds with items for dogs from the pet industry and they are a lot more than before to the point I’m trying to click the X mark that tells the site not to show me the dog stories and that doesn’t seem to do anything because I still see them daily. I think it’s because I click on some of the stories to put comments in there and to express my disgust with the kissing arse dog culture (especially the pit bull stories) and the cookie software thinks I have and want to spend money on dogs! ARGH!

Neil jennison July 23, 2014 at 9:01 am

Last weekend I was at an open air brass band concert. I witnessed a bloke allowing his friend’s dog to lick his lips and tongue for at least 20 seconds.

I felt sick looking at it. Obviously it is up to him if he wishes to have a tongue that was previously licking a rotting, dead squirrel, of licking another hound’s backside or its own testicles, but it makes me wonder what other disgusting things these people do.

willko July 23, 2014 at 9:20 am

StoptheDog: It’s funny that pet food commercials only have to appeal to the owners. Notice the near “homemade beef stew” look of the advertised products. A dog doesn’t care too much what it eats. You could bag up 30lb sacks of cat turds and they’d quite happy to eat it. Why I call ‘em “shithounds”.

” It’s called a crate. Of heaven forbid anyone go this low they do make diapers for dogs.”

Believe me, I tried to get the dog a crate. When I suggested getting a crate for the dog, all I got was that it is “cruel” to do so. I just don’t understand dog owners who complain about the dog having accidents in the house but when you try to persuade them to actually train the dog and stop being so lazy, they get mad at you. Since when it is “cruel” to train a dog? And why even have a dog if you aren’t willing to put the work in to have it properly trained? This dog is a whiny, spoiled brat who rarely gets told “no” because that is again, considered cruel. I have noticed that this trend is almost exclusive to smaller dogs which is the reason why the majority of them are annoying and useless.*eyeroll* People argue that cats are useless but the average house cat doesn’t do any more or any less than the average house dog, in my opinion. Maybe the dog gets a walk or maybe even two if lucky, but they are pretty much on the same level.

Stopthedogmania. I cannot get my head around the cruelty used in many parts if not all asian countires in the menthods used to butcher animals. All animals used for food deserve to be dispatched as quickly and with as little stress as possible. The slaughter looks gruesome but the animal should be deceased before processing begins. (PS US slaughterhouses leave much to be desired.)
There would need to be processing plants to handle dogs and I’m guessing cats. Well i guess that might finally get people to keep their pets at home and chipped with current information.

Sugary Spice , Sadly what is going on is neither love for the dog but in fact abuse itself. Animals and most humans thrive best in a structured setting where the rules and boundaries are known. I have seen homes destoyed by owners, their children and pets. All in the name of its cruel to teach someone or something to behave.
Training is not cruel. It forms the bond that these fools are looking for and lets a dog be what it is instead of a mutant baby. Oh wait that’s what they want.

Willco I believe we got a good look at what happens when dogs go feral after hurricane Katrina.
As a resident of the Land of Enchantment I don’t walk out to my trash bin without pepper spray, bear repellent, bat , cane or handgun. Doggers have ruined the ideal of an evening stroll down a country lane or even sitting outside enjoying the night. Trails are ruined by loose running mutts and piles of dog shit. I used to get off and move horse poo off the path. If it was in a walkway or inappropriate place I’d bag and trash it. Doggers also seem to assume that the right of way belongs only to them. I’ve had to yell at doggers to restrain their dogs that were being agressive to horses. It’s all about taking their stupid dogs everywhere and getting bent when anyone dares suggest they are behaving like morons.
For your amusment Willco more than once I simly let my mares teach the dogs not to play around horsey legs.

The vast majority of you have experience with bad owners. You don’t let your dog lick you you’d plates or go indoors. That’s disgusting. I own a fully housebroken mini pin who as I write this is curled on his favorite spot on the couch.

He dosnt yap all day and is walked four times daily and sleeps in his den (kennel) at night. His teeth are brushed every other day and baths are weekly, although more often if he comes inside stinking and his bedding is kept clean weekly as well.

He is offered bones daily to chew on and I’ve never had him chew on anything he wasn’t supposed to, except once when I first got him. For two weeks he knocked over the trash when I went out but firm discipline and training stopped both bad habits, as it did his jumping on people, which took three months of work to correct.

There are good owners and there are terrible owners. Just as there are good dogs and bad ones. Dogs are not dangerous unless mistreated and improperly socialized. It just takes work, which sadly many people are unwilling to put the effort into to raise good dogs. Don’t blame the dog for having a bad owner though.

mfatpony@aol.com July 23, 2014 at 2:32 pm

Dogs are not dangerous unless mistreated and improperly socialized.

To which I say. Bwahahahahahahahahahaha…go read the news. All those lovely well-trained socialized pibbles that eat the baby.

I hate dogs. despise the sight of them. Want nothing to do with your dog no matter how well-behaved or trained. However I’m not a micromanager of someone else’s life or rights. In fact it’s well known I don’t give a rats ass what my neighbors are doing until it spills over into MY life.
absolutely every dog owner sees themself as the good dog owner. And anyone who doesn’t like their mutt as the enemy of mankind.
So if you want to do something productive go to the dog lover sites and start preaching good behavior to the doggers who go there to whine about having AC called on them for their mutt barking 24/7 or running loose. Tell them that not everyone wants to interact with their beast and its their right not to. Unless you are in a leash off dog park which I would never venture into keep the dang thing on a leash, under control and off strangers unless they actively just can’t wait to grope your doggie. No one outside of you has to like your dog. And try doing it with respect instead of the usual lip curling , evil eye and accusations of being an animal hater or abuser.

You contradict your self you know. Yes there are very bad breeds of dogs that do most of the killing and maiming and yet doggers peddle them as nanny dogs.

naoma foreman July 23, 2014 at 2:44 pm

Latest post about dogs: I do not like ANY DOG. PERIOD. Good, bad,
indifferent. Period. They smell bad. They will stink up your house. You
have to “walk them” and then “pick it up.” Have them if you wish but
do not expect others to “love” them, want to pet them or interact with them.

naoma foreman July 23, 2014 at 2:55 pm

Real World: I care not anything about your dog. It could “whistle Dixie” — tap dance, play Hungarian Rhapsody by Liszt on the Kazoo — or write a book. I just do not like ANY dog. So sue me.

dogsfromhell July 23, 2014 at 3:01 pm

Don’t blame the dog for having a bad owner though

Of course we know it isn’t the dogs fault. Dogs are too dull to comprehend anything, so how could they be to blame. They have no concept of right/wrong, moral/immoral, love, hate or algebra. Its the dog owners who impose their beasts on others. They are the same people who came up with the bright idea to tinker with nature and create these monsters. Blame is irrelevant. We still hate dogs just like rats, roaches and other vermin.

dogsfromhell July 23, 2014 at 3:07 pm

Re: “right of way”. Nothing makes me more angry than walking down the street and having to move aside for some idiot with shit machines in tow. Its just incredibly rude that doggers feel entitled to push humans out of their way so that you can’t even enjoy a stroll.

dogsfromhell July 23, 2014 at 3:26 pm

I own a fully housebroken mini pin who as I write this is curled on his favorite spot on the couch.

Now that’s what we’ve been talking about. You can bathe your mutt twice a day and that thing will still stink like dog. There is no way around it. Its just nasty.

Even worse is the idea that your dog shits outside (maybe), then slaps its freshly crapped bare asshole on furniture, bedding and carpets. I wouldn’t go near your furniture with a 10 foot pole.I just never get why doggers seem to miss this information. Would you let your best buddy Puck do that in your home?? Time for a reality check real world.

mfatpony@aol.com July 23, 2014 at 5:40 pm

Hey Dogsfromhell. I refuse to move out of the way for doggers. Nor do I hesitate to tell them to get their dog away from me. Once upon a time I was a much nicer person. Doggers can’t teach their dogs to behave because it appears that most of them have no manners either. I have found that sadly the only way to deal with a dog owner is to lower yourself to their level.
I like to read the dog lover blogs. They are bad here but you should read some of the postings on what they want to do to someone for complaining about their dog barking. BTW none of them have barking dogs. (cough cough).

dogsfromhell July 23, 2014 at 7:33 pm

I don’t have a problem being un-nice to them at all. I have told people up on restaurant row or a town event to “shut that thing up”. It’s outrageous that these people sit outside at cafes with their nasty mutt under the table while they eat. I’ve seen them barking at everyone that goes by. I have a right to walk in my own town without some *A* hole’s dog barking at me! But when they are walking on the same sidewalk as I am, I’m just afraid their beast will turn to the side and attack me. And my town loves pit bulls.

Isn’t it laughable that none of their dogs bark. Gawd

What dog lover sites do you visit. We should stalk them back

Neil jennison July 23, 2014 at 11:30 pm

Certainly my dislike of dogs is not largely based on the danger they pose. Though some dogs are undoubtedly very dangerous (though their owners seldom accept this) the real problem I have is the attitude of the owners.

If someone wants to own a dog, well the UK (like the USA) is a free country, so I have no problem in principle with that. What I object to is society being organised in such a way as it is EXPECTED that we all follow the dog lovers line. We are expected to act as if dogs have human emotions. Dogs are protected in law and convention like they are furry humans.

We are ostracized in most circles for seeing dogs for what they are….dirty, unhygienic, noisy and irritating.

Why should I suffer because I have the intelligence not to anthropomorphise these animals? Why should I be glared at because I object to a filthy animal licking a pub ( bar for the USA readers) table that people eat off? Why should I feel bad because I don’t want a hound sniffing my genitals and jumping up at me?

If you want a dog, that’s your affair – but don’t impose it on me and don’t let it spread its filth in public.

mfatpony@aol.com July 24, 2014 at 1:06 am

Lmao. I absolutely despise dogs. The fact that I’ve been an animal trainer most of my life including dogs at times makes me despise the owners even more. An untrained dog of any size is a danger. Some more than others. You should be concerned beyond their spreading filth around and the endless barking . Right now some do gooder is adopting a poorly socialized dumped at the pound pitbull that has been ‘ stress tested’ and deemed a great family pet.
I don’t allow dogs to touch me. Nor do i put up with strays or barking mutts at the neighbors.
I used to think it was just a few a-holes but really its the whole darn culture of owning a dog. And it must of course be a rescue dog because nothing beats going to the shelter and adopting a 1-2 year old monster that someone else dumped and taking it home to play with the baby. There is no place you go anymore that someone doesn’t have their freaking dog attached to them. And yes they are beyond offended if you dare tell them to keep their mutt to themselves.
The truth is there are lots of people who don’t like dogs. Everyone just needs to speak up.

naoma foreman July 24, 2014 at 3:49 am

In Paris now. Got on the Metro and some man came in with a large dog on a leash — I do not believe they are allowed unless it is a “seeing eye dog” so we immediately got off. No need to have that filthy beast brush
against my clothes and then I’d smell like a dog. BARF!

nodogs4me July 24, 2014 at 5:34 am

Neil…. that is hitting the nail right on the head.
“We are ostracized in most circles for seeing dogs for what they are….dirty, unhygienic, noisy and irritating”

Just wish it wasn’t so, because I really am a decent person. I just don’t like dogs, and most of the time have to keep those sentiments buried.

dogsfromhell July 24, 2014 at 6:08 am

And it must of course be a rescue dog because nothing beats going to the shelter and adopting a 1-2 year old monster that someone else dumped and taking it home to play with the baby.

mfatpony: Isn’t that the truth!? Dog rescue organizations have marketed their product well. Buying a dog is no longer cool enough. You have to “rescue” one. That validates you as a wonderful human I assume. I often wonder why people aren’t wary of a dog someone else didn’t want. Doesn’t a red flag go up just knowing this little fact? When they go to the shelter and see it over flowing with pit bulls doesn’t that tell them something?

mfatpony@aol.com July 24, 2014 at 10:15 am

Yes. That they should adopt 2. You can’t fix stupid.

“Even worse is the idea that your dog shits outside (maybe), then slaps its freshly crapped bare asshole on furniture, bedding and carpets. I wouldn’t go near your furniture with a 10 foot pole.”

I bet his/her couch is full of disgusting dog fecal matter and bacteria if you look under a microscope. Just because one cannot see it with the naked eye doesn’t mean it isn’t there. It is like a person using the restroom without washing their hands and then touching everything with their nasty fingers. And a lot of dogs like to “butt slide” across the carpet, which is beyond vile.

Why is it just because someone claims their dog is “well trained/behaved” (which is usually just that – a claim) we dog haters are supposed to automatically like or want to be around the nasty thing. At this point, I want nothing to do with dogs and their dingbat owners. The only dogs that are well trained are REAL service dogs who pretty much ignore people.

StopTheDogMania July 24, 2014 at 12:24 pm

My guy was telling me that some years ago he adopted an adult Rottweiler and that he was the best dog he ever owned because he ”rescued” it and the dog knew it was ”rescued” and that it had a second chance at life and that’s why he listened and loved him and acted all nice. To me, it is a gamble when you ”rescue” a dog from a shelter because you don’t know much of the issues he previously had and how it was raised and it could be a ticking bomb especially if it’s a dangerous breed. I would not put my own safety and the safety of any family member under question just so I feel good that I rescued a dog.

naoma foreman July 24, 2014 at 12:36 pm

AH, yes, the DOG LOVERS!!! On the Metro (in Paris I am) and a man brought a DOG ON. WE Immediately got out — not near our stop. I did not want DOG STINK anywhere near me.

naoma foreman July 24, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Just returned from a very pleasant Japanese meal (I am in Paris) and a couple brought in a dog. I immediately got up and left the restaurant and my husband behind to pay the bill. Why do people think their smelly dog is welcome where people eat — in their home who cares, and I would not go there, but in a public restaurant it is a NO NO in my book? Dog smell is like a combination of crap and puke.

naoma foreman July 24, 2014 at 1:09 pm

In Paris. Went to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Finished and sitting
there talking to my husband when a couple came in with a DOG. I left
and went outside. Also on the Metro (subway) the other day a man got
on with a dog! (not allowed) I have no idea why people think they can bring these stinking dogs where other people are. We got off the Metro also before it left the station.

nodogs4me July 24, 2014 at 1:11 pm

Yeah.. I am with you sugary spice. For dog news today, I seem to have some neighbors on my block that have acquired some mutts, that chase cars….two of them. No gate and loose. Leaving the store on an errand, I saw two women putting a mutt in a shopping cart to take in with them It was inside a carrier which they placed in the cart, but still. No one seems to question this anymore. As hot as what it is today in Florida… I can see not leaving it in a hot vehicle, but why the need to take it with them to begin with??

Brings up one other thing that came to mind. I used to go to an auto repair shop, that always had the damned dogs at the garage. It stunk to high heaven the second you walked in, so you knew there were dogs immediately. They treated me well so I tried to deal with it, but one day, they came to pick me up in my own vehicle, because I had to leave it overnight, and they came with the effing dog in my car. I think you know, I know longer do business with them.

naoma foreman July 24, 2014 at 1:12 pm

In Paris having dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Finished and sitting chatting with my husband. Couple came in with a DOG!!!! People are
eating!!! I hate these stinking animals and left the restaurant. He paid the bill and came out with me. Why do people think these stinking
animals can go wherever they wish. NO RESTAURANTS! NO GROCERY STORES!!!

dogsfromhell July 24, 2014 at 1:41 pm

nodogs4me..I’d be livid but at that point what could you do?? There seems to be a cognitive disconnect somewhere with these people which renders them unable to empathize with other humans on some level.

Julie July 24, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Ugh I haven’t been on here for a while, frustrated with the dog smell. I have a Weiner dog which was acquired against my wishes, but the kids and hubby are firmly attached and I have to suffer. The other night I was complaining about him stinking and was told he was just bathed 4 days ago so he must have rolled in something. I was like no that is just his natural stench…and then I was called mean because I sprayed him with perfume so I could breath.:-[
