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 :(

Not to mention that you are constantly eye to eye with its ass hole.

All I had to read was one single comment on that video,

“I LOVE it…trustworthy human and trustworthy dogs. They obviously love this little girl. She is safer with the dogs than with most humans.”

…excuse me? Makes me want to vomit.


Looks like I should’ve made a trip across the pond…looks like their “dog free trial period” is ending next month though. I’m glad they had good reception from it, though.

Keep up with all the fun and carnage with dogs.

Christine January 19, 2015 at 1:11 pm

Wow, searched up I hate dogs for fun and this came up. People are actually using killing machine to describe dogs???? Jesus Christ, everyone on here seems unstable. Don’t even have a dog, but you are all crazy and need help. For some odd reason, you buffoons remind me of crazy conservatives. Like damn, read what you are writing.

Why would Christine be on here if she has a dog?

mfatpony@aol.com January 19, 2015 at 9:30 pm

Becasue Chrissy is a troll One that likely smells like the dog crap she lives in.

dogsfromhell January 19, 2015 at 9:51 pm

Chrissy, check out political science 101. Conservatives want to maintain the status quo. And that’s exactly what you and the dog nuts want more than anything. You want to continue using our environment as your dog’s personal toilet, allowing your psycho beasts to attack, maim and murder humans especially children and infringe on your neighbors right to live in peaceful enjoyment of his/her own property because you can’t/don’t care enough to get the bark machine to shut up.

We on the other hand are not afraid to speak out in defense of HUMAN rights over dog rights, safe residential communities especially for children and a healthy environment free of canine disease, water pollution and the HAZMAT in your backyard.

This is a progressive site where we advocate change and offer support to others who are smart enough not to buy into dog cultism, an industry driven by profit and fueled by moneyed pit lobbyists.

mfatpony@aol.com January 19, 2015 at 10:48 pm

It amazing that pit nutters are always trying to adopt out the “most amazing dog ever”. If its so amazing, why aren’t they keeping it?

sugary spice January 20, 2015 at 9:20 am

Naoma – I can’t believe or understand why people would pay that much money for a stinking crap hound. I can’t believe people actually pay money for these annoying pests that pee/poop everywhere. $24,000 for a dog? Why, just why? I bet that thing is ugly as hell too.

sugary spice January 20, 2015 at 9:33 am

Hey Christine would you not be “unstable” too, if some dog(s) ruined your right to peace and quiet? I did not wake up one day and decided to hate dogs, it happened overtime due to countless negative experiences. Wouldn’t you be furious too if a dog bit you, used the bathroom near or on your property, barked 24/7, stole your food, or ripped through your trash can and left a filthy mess for you to clean up? And this is on a near daily basis. And would it not make your more angry if the owners of these dogs always shrug off the behavior or come up with an excuse to defend the stupid dog?

Why are we “crazy” for wanting to live in quiet, peaceful, safe, and clean environments? Isn’t that a basic human right?

mfatpony@aol.com January 20, 2015 at 9:52 am

DFH it’s called puffing. They aren’t amazing and they are dumped because of behavior issues usually stemming from their owners inability to train them or breed characteristics. Probably the same reason they defend their mutts like rabid animals themselves or project all forms of mental illness on anyone who can openly state that they hate dogs.
For all the hysterics that people who hate dogs are dog abusers its dog lovers themselves that hoard and mistreat them. The fact that someone disposes of the escaped antisocial beast also rests on the owners.

Canetoad January 20, 2015 at 3:37 pm

This unfortunate person hit someone’s loose mutt on the highway: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/wheelwright-ky/T8C3S67CUI54QIA9K Just look at the replies from the mutt apologists … there’s something wrong with them, There must be!

LinM January 20, 2015 at 4:45 pm


This lady was attacked by the animals she fostered and had a heart attack.. the dogs went to a friend of a relative and after they turned on each other their wounds were so bad they were “put down”…they basically shot them in the head and the cops were called. They explained their situation and now they’re the ones in trouble..I don’t see how this is wrong at all..the beasts were lucky to even be re homed with someone else after killing that lady. This is south Texas..I have a friend who got a pit bull and after it growled at his little girl he took it out back and shot it. He said the dog would never serve a purpose and it needed to be done. He already has a pit and granted I’m terrified of the thing he does his job to watch the house and keep strangers away. I just think the city is over reacting in the case..if they’re guilty of anything it’s firing a gun in city limits..

mfatpony@aol.com January 20, 2015 at 6:22 pm

LinM. I see putting them down as the humane thing. I’m sure the rescue wanted to start a gofundme to spend thousands of dollars to fix them so they could find their forever home.
The fact that a woman, no matter how foolish died, is of little consequence. She was after all already dead and dogs are innocents. Her family should seek a lawsuit against the rescue.

mfatpony@aol.com January 20, 2015 at 6:56 pm

You have to wonder how often this goes on and doesn’t make the news.
Facebook and mommy blogs are full of parents who don’t take their children to the doctor for dog bites for fear the mutt will be taken.

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 2:46 am

This makes me so cross! A boy with autism is not allowed to bring his ‘autism service dog’ to school. Quite right too!

What this nonsense means is that the boy – like, I guess, most children – wants his pet with him (or rather, his parents want him to have his pet with him). HE won’t see it as an ‘autism service dog’ – just his dog. Putting a large dog that is going to pee and poop everywhere (despite what they say) in a school full of unpredictable young children is asking for trouble! And YES! I have an autistic son who was much the same at his age. Did I give him an ‘autism service dog’? No, I jolly well didn’t! My son did very well in his school with the help of a learning support assistant (who I did not expect to feed and water and poop-clean a dog). Only dog lovers give their disabled children service dogs! – a point that is always overlooked.

People have got to get out of this self-righteous frame of mind whereby they think they can inflict a dog on others. If the boy were sent to school with a big fluffy toy to cuddle when he became stressed, it would have the same effect as the dog but without causing inconvenience to others!

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 3:04 am

MFP – Here is another one about the dog that bit the foster child (in this case, a foster daughter). She was bitten on the cheek and needed hospital treatment. Seems two of the dogs were fighting and this eight-year-old picked up one of the dogs to stop it getting hurt and the vicious thing went for her. http://forums.adoption.com/foster-parent-support/414236-my-dog-bit-my-fd.html

The comments from mutt worshippers are predictable:
“The dog is being punished because the child has not been taught. The child needs dog safety education immediately! Some kids just really don’t know the signs which is why she needs training.” These comments are laughable because they are admitting that dogs are vicious animals but cannot see the wood for the trees!

It should be a condition of fostering that that the foster parent does not allow dogs in the house.

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 3:25 am

Here is another post from the site that I flagged previously:

“I’m so sorry. We’ve been there. We owned a doberman (full size) that we rescued who was deaf and had some neurological issues. We had our adoptive placement boys a total of 4 days. The 17 month old came up behind her, she got scared and turned and bit him in the face. We were devastated. She caused 3 puncture wounds, his eye swelled way up and turned black a blue. Thank goodness no permenant damage was done, just ended out being a few scars. [JUST a few scars?!]

That same day my husband took the dog to quarantine and signed off on her to be put down.

When it happened, we called the SW immediately to report it and were in ER within 30 minutes. Now when I think of it, we didn’t get a call back from the SW for TWO days. huh

Again, I’m sorry, but my advice would be to either give the dog away immediately or have the dog put down.”

Why are foster placements EVER made to people who have dogs, particularly large ones that can so so much damage? Are biological parents allowed to stipulate that their children are not to be fostered in homes where there are dogs?

Henrietta Everett January 21, 2015 at 7:41 am

You know jolly well that if anyone dairs to say “no dogs.” then that person is going to have their head ripped off by the raavid dog cultists and thse who support them. Also if the parent of a child says “i don’t want my child near dogs.” then he/she’s going to probibly be forced to go to some psychologist not because of their parenting skills, but simply because they wanted their children to oh i don’t know, not get mutelated! My point is that we all know how the doggers act, but if we could some how use it to show them that they are being complete asses, then maybe there would be some hope for us who don’t like dogs one bit.
How many JUdge Judy cases are there of a dog attacking a child? Also look at all the stories online and in the news about “dog attacks child” or “stray dog nearly kills 85-year-old woman in front of her home on Robson Street” or something like that. Yet doggers don’t see that obviously people have a reason for either mistrusting, disliking, being terrified of or hating dogs for any reason.
Yet we’re the horrible people for not wanting a bloody dog near us when we’re eating at a derry queen, or a dog to bark for 8 hours on a flight. It drives me mad knowing that no matter how many times a dog annoys, terrifies or nearly kills someone the doggers just refuse to get it. It’s not that they don’t understand because they can’t, it’s that they don’t understand because they don’t want to and that they want to believe their dogs are saints. Simple as that. Frankley, that’s worse then not understanding because you can’t.

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 9:36 am

And here’s today’s accident-waiting-to-happen story: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2917185/A-boy-s-best-friend-Heartwarming-moment-Toby-rescue-dog-cuddles-sick-toddler-sofa.html Just about all the comments are oohing and aahing about how cute it all is. Note that’s it’s not just a dog, it is a hallowed RESCUE dog. Strangely, the Mail Online has stopped taking comments about this one. I wonder why? Was there an avalanche of negative comments that never made it on to the page?

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 10:06 am

I have been trying to find out whether biological parents have the right to request a dog-free foster placement but when I typed various combinations of words into the search engine most of what I found was information about fostering dogs! I did, however, find this: http://www.hertsdirect.org/docs/pdf/p/petpolicy.pdf This is the pet policy applied by Hertfordshire (UK) in relation to foster placements in homes where there are pets.

I was somewhat amused to read this: “Since 1st August 2010, Hertfordshire County Council no longer approves new Foster Carers for the age group 0-5 years, if they have animals which are
perceived to pose a risk and are therefore on our “caution list”. This includes Bull Terriers, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Bullmastiffs, German Shepherds and Rhodesian Ridgebacks.”

I had been led to believe, having read endless comments from semi-literate mutt lovers, that it’s not the breed, it’s the owner! Seriously, I’m glad they apply this policy and only wish that it was made unlawful to allow these animals around people’s own (that is, non-fostered) children under the age of five.

This bit was interesting too: “Special caution will need to be taken when assessing households containing an Alsatian/German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman, Bulldog or more than two dogs of any breed, as these have been identified by the RSPCA as breeds with a tendency and capacity for aggressiveness.” Yet the RSPCA opposes breed-specific legislation!

Sarah January 21, 2015 at 10:26 am

I left the house for about 20 minutes today and come home to a river of smelly dog piss that my mom’s psychotic greyhound left. I had just let him out before I left the house. This dog is completely mental and he’ll be 13 soon, hopefully he won’t be around much longer, he is totally worthless. All he does is piss and sh*t in the house, drool, go through the trash and whine and howl.

mfatpony@aol.com January 21, 2015 at 10:27 am

Canetoad. There’s an interesting thought being passed around by sane uses and supporters of service and therapy dogs. Giving a child a therapy dog too early can keep them from developing to their full potential. Reliance on a dog for comfort and even some handicaps keeps them from learning to cope with the real world.
In the case of the boy you posted he’s doing fine without his mutt. And yet his parents are convinced a dog can provide better supervision than teachers.
You would think the parents would be thrilled their child was thriving but nooooooooooo. They wish to anchor a mutt around his neck for life.
Growing up my best friend had epilepsy. All of us knew the ticks and subtle signs of a seizure coming on. She didn’t need a dog, She had friends. Teaching a child they aren’t safe or can’t be without a mutt seems counterproductive.

lily January 21, 2015 at 2:30 pm

I did alot of driving in Iraq and Afghanistan which was nerve wracking because of IEDs.I had mild PTSD when I got home and literally EVERYONE tried forcing a damn dog on me.I know they meant well but I dont find dogs and the shit they produce soothing.I had people say to me “well,you can talk to them and they will listen and not criticize you.”

What kind of ass backwards logic is that? Its an animal FFS! It doesnt understand a word you’re saying….might as well just talk to a rock if you dont want a reply.I did start gardening though since I find that relaxing but my neighbors yapping dog has taken that away from me.

So now Im looking for a lawyer while the lady who owns my house(Im renting to own) is trying to find a way to help.This has been my home for 7 years and I refuse to move.It looks like the only way its going to change is if I hit them in their wallet.

Canetoad January 21, 2015 at 3:10 pm

Lily, your post made my day – especially the bit about ‘EVERYONE tried forcing a damn dog on me’. I had this as well when my son was diagnosed with autism. I was inundated with newspaper cuttings by well-meaning people who thought getting a dog would mean that my son’s autism would be all but cured. When I explained that we wouldn’t be able to afford a dog (in those days I didn’t like to say I couldn’t stand them, so said we couldn’t afford it) they looked at me in a pitiful way as if I were a cruel parent to deprive my son of an autism dog that would cure him. Drove me nuts. The costs associated with the dog and the effort of looking after it (mopping up pee, collecting crap in a little bag and so on) would have far outweighed any benefit to my son, who has turned out to be gifted in a particular field (though socially unusual) and is currently applying to university – all done without a dog in tow.

mfatpony@aol.com January 21, 2015 at 3:41 pm

Lily I have to wonder where all the people who wanted you to have a dog to help are now that you are being harassed by one.
It’s common to use military vets as a platform for this agenda. I’m sickened by it. Nothing more than dog groups looking for a way to reaffirm that dogs are mans best friend and pits are misunderstood.
There are lawyers who devote their whole lives to saving dogs that have bitten, mauled and murdered humans and pets where are the ones that stand up for the victims with that much passion. I hope you find a shark and he/she nails their hide to the wall.

mfatpony@aol.com January 21, 2015 at 3:51 pm

Canetoad. Looking back do you think a dog would have actually helped or held your child back socially ?
I worked in programs using hippotherapy and seen many children gain confidence and better motor skills. Hippotherapy is not riding lessons but using the natural motion of the horse. The children did gravitate to the horses often opening up but the goal was always to make their lives better not anchor them with a horse as a security blanket. Congratulations to your son BTW.

Christian Woods January 21, 2015 at 3:54 pm

Just a shame that everything Hemy said is true.

lily January 21, 2015 at 5:21 pm

Canetoad,I’d also like to congratulate you and your son.My young niece has autism and it can be hard on both the parent and child.My niece is actually terrified of dogs because of their unpredictability…I think.She’s a quite child who loves drawing things she sees in nature(she came to my house every 3 days to sketch the lifecycle of my sunflowers) but a dog launching into a barking fit or lunging against a fence scares the hell out of her leaving her a nervous wreck for hours.

MFP,funny thing is the idiots across the road have a “We support our troops”bumper sticker on their car.I would love to walk over there and ask them why they dont support this vets right to peace and quite.The only reason I dont is because I also hate it when our vets use their position in the military to try and get their way.I’ve seen them try to drag their untrained mutts around while claiming they need them for their PTSD.Usually they get confronted by other soldiers since we try to police our own.
As for lawyers my brother went to high school with a guy who turned out to be one of the best in the southeast.We had a little talk and they will be hearing from him soon.I tried being nice and sent them a polite letter asking them please quite their dog and they responded by adding another dog to their backyard.

IKnowit January 21, 2015 at 9:08 pm

I don’t like you Christine, not at all. I didn’t like your stupid comment. Dog lovin yap are you now? Be a neighbor without a dog, and you will feel OUR pain. Try it! Idiot. Btw I like the I am not a robot thing

Sarah January 21, 2015 at 9:11 pm

I’m so glad that I’m moving to a dog-free apartment complex.

IKnowit January 21, 2015 at 9:16 pm

Nodogs4me I agree, and we have he same problem.

mfatpony@aol.com January 21, 2015 at 10:53 pm

Hemy lots of people hate dogs. Even other dog owners hate their nasty dog owning neighbors. They hate their doggy friends at the dog park. Lots of them really hate pitbulls. If not for the constant online and tv propaganda that makes being a nut look normal these doggists would have been beaten back into their caves.
Sarah. I’m glad you found a dog free place.
Lily I was amazed when the fools next door added a second dog. After all having one dog you can’t control just isn’t enough. Since you’re getting a lawyer I guess you’ve moved out the small claims courts. If it wasn’t their dogs it would probably be something else. I’ve had more than one my neighbors church buddies say less than kind things about my dogger neighbor. Self entitlement is nasty no matter how it manifests itself. Expect them to retaliate or try to over some code you are supposedly breaking. I’ve went through that with the my horses caused them to have flies bull. I didn’t have flies. I can’t stand them. They had flies because they had about a ton of dog crap and pissed up yard by their front door. That along with their cats using the front porch as a litter box. Don’t be surprised that after having them served you have to add a restraining order to the mix. Self entitled people never think they are the cause of their own misery. Or expect them to counter with an offer to mediate or get rid of the mutts. They will never shut their dogs up for more than a week if you do and they’ll simply get more dogs if they get rid of these. I got caught in this endless cycle and its really hard to dig out of.

Canetoad January 22, 2015 at 12:33 am

Sarah, congratulations on moving to a dog-free apartment complex. I just hope it’s not full of ‘emotional support’ mutts and ‘service dogs’.

I have just found this dog-in-an-apartment article that you just couldn’t make up: https://www.change.org/p/city-of-aurora-colorado-don-t-kill-achilles-the-catahoula-leopard-dog This dog (one of two) had already bitten ‘an angry man’ (‘angry’ being defined as shouting at the owner to keep the dog away, though the doggists deny that the man was actually bitten so it doesn’t count) and THEN attacked a couple who just happened to be walking past the open apartment door. The woman was bitten on the ankle. This article generously comments, “We are not saying this was their fault.”

In the good old days the dog would have been put down and everyone, except maybe the owner, would have felt that this was the right thing to do. Not any more! The ‘Save The Vicious Dog’ industry has gone into overdrive and it has been saved! It beggars belief that so much effort and legal representation goes into saving a dog that is vicious. I wonder who its next victim will be?

Had Enough w/Canines January 22, 2015 at 2:52 am

Do you mean hippotherapy, (as in a hippopotamus) or something else?
My autistic daughter was never offered an animal solution for therapy. I feel cheated. ; p

Had Enough w/Canines January 22, 2015 at 3:14 am

Lily Said: I had people say to me “well,you can talk to them and they will listen and not criticize you.”

No, they’ll just teach you to be intolerant and criticize others for not liking their $#!t buckets.

You know, normally I abhor swearing, but I can think of no other words to describe those P’sOS.

Lily, I applaud your stance on the issues and wish you the very best dog free life you can get.

Canetoad January 22, 2015 at 7:27 am

MFP, you asked: “Canetoad. Looking back do you think a dog would have actually helped or held your [autistic] child back socially?”

I think a dog would have held him back socially – the main reason being that he would probably have become so dependent on the dog that he would have seen little need for human social interaction which, although difficult for him, is necessary for functioning in everyday life. If given the choice of interacting with the dog or humans, the dog would have won because it wouldn’t answer back and therefore would require less effort.

An autistic child would likely be resented by some younger children if they were able to bring their dog to school (which is what the original post was about) while their pets had to stay at home, thereby limiting the child’s acceptance still further. The dog’s lifespan also needs to be taken into account – children with autism don’t tend to embrace change, so when the dog pops off it’s likely to cause a lot of grief.

Nothing on earth would have persuaded me to get an autism dog!

lily January 22, 2015 at 11:38 am

I love this website because without it I would have very little moral support since most people think Im nutty for taking this to court.Its not like I enjoy this.Like myfatpony pointed out,this is going to be a long drawn out process.Im just hoping that they back down once they get a legal letter from my lawyer.Surely court is the last place a bunch of drug addicts want to be no matter what the case is.

I’ve come to the conclusion that most dog owners are misreable people with sad lives and torturing the neighbors with their sacred cows is the only way they can feel like they have power.Once all is said and done with these people Im not stopping though.The laws in my city need to change.The fact that 5 people(who dont even know each other) from 2 different streets can complain about the same dog and yet nothing gets done without a law suit is beyond crazy.

dogsfromhell January 22, 2015 at 6:12 pm

mfp. Don’t even know how to process that. What a nut job. How does a rational person state that their “dogs are the most loving dogs on the planet” when the demons just killed a bunch of other animals?! Pit bull owners are seriously in a league of their own. She was working that victim thing hard. And that’s why pits are “so misunderstood”! Amazing.

This is an interesting UK site: http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-search.php?status=Reunited It’s a site where people can list dogs lost and found, and there is a ‘reunited’ page if the dog is found.

I have mixed feelings about this site. It’s good in the sense that it tries to reunite lost dogs with their owners, which means less chance of them crapping everywhere, causing traffic accidents and biting people.

On the other hand, the write-ups about the ‘boy’ or the ‘girl’ (at the bottom of each page) are utterly cringeworthy. There are suggestions to hire a helicopter, to get Network Rail staff to walk along the tracks to look for a dog (never mind about keeping the trains running) and so on. The military-style enthusiasm is palpable! It is all written in dog-lover-language, so no surprises there.

What DOES bother me is the fact that these people are so wrapped up in doggism that they fail to appreciate that loose dogs are a damned nuisance insofar as they cause road accidents that could kill and injure people, and that they create a general nuisance to others. There is NEVER any acknowledgement of this on the site, but that is hardly surprising.

I have just seen this mind-boggling entry: “…and she has also the little Madam caused traffic chaos at Manchester Airport Terminal 2.” Let’s all laugh at that, shall we? Then: “She ran 2 junctions up the M60 towards Stratford so motorway traffic was in chaos for a while (naughty girl). ” That’s even funnier – let’s laugh at the naughty girl putting lives at risk on the motorway! Let’s think of the cost to the National Health Service of treating the injured were someone to swerve to avoid the dog and hit something!

The outcome of this was that the dog was hit by a car (unsurprisingly) and injured (thankfully it was the dog and not innocent people – and I say that because I hear so much about ‘innocent dogs’), and subsequently died. That is a likely side effect of not keeping an eye on a dog.

HERE is an article about what happens when a dog gets loose on an airport tarmac: http://travel.aol.co.uk/2011/12/20/whippet-on-runway-causes-chaos-at-manchester-airport/ All flights have to be delayed and aircraft have to circle overhead. (Not sure why this is – can’t they just run the dog over?) I wonder how the dog owner would feel if there was an accident as a result of their lack of control over their pet? (I guess they’d be so grief-stricken over the loss of their fur baby that the two jumbo jets that collided in mid-air would be neither here nor there.)

It’s quite interesting to look under ‘lost dogs’ on this site and try and guess the outcome.

Canetoad January 23, 2015 at 12:59 pm

I’ve seen it all now: https://www.change.org/p/national-campaign-for-cassie-s-law-for-safer-railways-for-dog-and-owner This is a campaign to fence in all the railways so that dogs can’t get hit by trains! Well, if the damn dogs were looked after in the first place, NO dog would EVER be hit by a train! The cost of doing this would be huge, bearing in mind the thousands of miles of track (much of which passes through open countryside – in towns they are fenced) and the costs would be passed on to the hapless rail users.

Dogs are able to dig under fencing. I’m not sure that dog owners realise this. As for the point regarding children, accidents involving children usually involve children who have fallen from platforms (fence wouldn’t have helped) or who are up to no good (spray painting trains and so on, and who would be more than capable of using wire cutters).

Why do dog owners think that the world revolves around them and their mutts?

naoma January 23, 2015 at 3:25 pm

I work at an art museum. Welcoming people and helping them
find the exhibits they wish to see. LAST STRAW TIME. Woman
came in with a dog on a leash (medium sized one). I guess it
was for comfort because she had no “disability.” DOGS IN A MUSEUM IS STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Could ugly mutt have been an “artist” or perhaps just an art lover?????.

mfatpony@aol.com January 23, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Canetoad. Than your for answering about your child. You were wise and so was Had Enough to not let that creep into your lives. Animals can be a valid part of therapy but not in the dominating roles parents are demanding.
We can see the effect of doggism in the FB pages blaming victims for being shredded by the pitbull and the nuts that come here threatening bodily harm for not loving dogs. Or worse hating pits even more than other dogs. .
Dogs found causing traffic jams should cost their owners a fine in the four diget range. I don’t see the problem in dogs and trains. The trains don’t lose to loose mutts. Carcasses with chips or tags should see the owners served with a clean up fee and a fine for a loose dog and possibly a fine for animal neglect since a dog on the road is putting its widdle life at risk.

mfatpony@aol.com January 23, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Naoma. As a child I was taken to many art museums. Often begged to go. My favorite was a seascape painted on wood by the artist who relied on pearl and sponge divers to bring up samples from the seafloor. It was rarely on display. I loved sitting on the bench in front of it in the peace and quiet imagining the process that allowed such a fantastic painting. Even the tour guides leading groups had a subdued tone to them that was soothing to listen to. I can’t see needing an ESA to go to a place that is supposed to be peaceful and somewhat intellectually stimulating and reflective. Of course doggers thing cemeteries are appropriate places to let their dogs crap.

dogsfromhell January 23, 2015 at 5:28 pm

And what about them pissing on sculptures and other works. All art is not on the wall. Museum staff watch you like a hawk in the event you dare touch a painting. Why are unpredictable dogs now allowed in museums?

mfatpony@aol.com January 23, 2015 at 9:12 pm

DFH, Considering that ESA don’t have to be trained I’m sure there are horror stories out there. That’s not counting the number of fake service dogs being paraded around by their scum owners. Many museums have their own historical details that are not enhanced by dog piss and crap.
Since there is no real registry or even standard of training it seems within the service dog industry it’s a literal crap shoot when one has to be admitted to any public business or building.

Henrietta Everett January 23, 2015 at 9:24 pm

Now they feel the need to let dogs piss on works of art too? for the love of all that is precious!

lily January 24, 2015 at 12:10 am

They dont belong in our National Parks either.I took my youngest sister to the Great Sand Dunes and while planning our trip online you wouldnt believe the amount of negative comments from people angry that Fido cant piss on our natural wonders.

This one idiot ranted on and on about how he no longer supports national parks because he cant take his ankle biter to a few of them.I cant even imagine that type of mentality.The fact that a person would deprive themselves of the incredible natural beauty of our planet because they cant be seperated from their dog for a few weeks is pathetic.

Had Enough w/Canines January 24, 2015 at 4:18 am

Canetoad, thanks for pointing out these common, stupidities of doggers. Like many, I’ve never thought about how much chaos a stray causes.
Here, we used to have many strays, but now I don’t hear nearly as many calls on my police scanner for pits as I used to. Mostly what the trains hit around here are suicides and stupid model/bodybuilders making movies.
It’s not that we hate dogs, so much as we hate dogger mentality.
……….Okay, dogs too.

Kelly January 24, 2015 at 6:42 am

Dogs are extremely valuable to society especially those used as service dogs. They save lives!

Kelly January 24, 2015 at 6:47 am

I find myself loving dogs more than most human beings. I think humans are far more dangerous, violent, and hateful then dogs!

jensen January 24, 2015 at 7:18 am

from your statement Kelly, I guess I can say cockroaches are better than dogs. they never maul children…..

Henrietta Everett January 24, 2015 at 7:27 am

Kelly, service dogs are veretually useless. I’m telling you right now that they’re useless, don’t forget my boyfriend is blind, and he doesn’t need a service dog, he’s got me to help him. If i’m not there, there are a whole bunch of his other friends like Eric and Gretchen that can help him. As for those who may have mental problems, now that’s just stupid. Just have a favorite toy with you everywhere. Hell, when i used to travvle with my parents, being affraid of flying, i took my Pikachu stuffy with me everywhere. Now i got Christian to hold on to when i’m on a flight.
As for helping with grief, some times, a lot of the time actually, people want someone that they can talk to about it. I lost my grandma to mesothelioma this past summer, and Christian listened to me, so did Gretchen. I really don’t see why you say dogs are valuable in 21st century society. We’re not dog sled racers anymore, and those that are are onely so because they either want to or because they have little access to anything else.

mfatpony@aol.com January 24, 2015 at 8:14 am

Kelly , I am sorry you have such a sorry messed up life.

Had Enough w/Canines January 24, 2015 at 8:44 am

I’m sorry she has so many humans that hate her. But, I get why.

sugary spice January 24, 2015 at 10:06 am

Kelly,. Dogs have no sense of how human society works, they are just simply doing what they were trained to do and/or rely on their instincts. While very few dogs have helped somewhat in saving people’s lives (no dog is able to call 911, perform CPR, or give first aid – only a human can do those things), the vast majority of dogs just sit around, bark, stink up the house, and crap everywhere.

That is up to you Kelly if you don’t want to seek out meaningful, healthy, and natural relationships with humans. I hope you understand that not everyone wants to hear, be around, or see your precious fleabag.

Canetoad January 24, 2015 at 10:55 am

Kelly, if you love dogs, that’s your business. Just keep these filthy animals away from people who have better things to do with their time and don’t want to be bothered by them. Have you not realised that ‘service dogs’ are only ever used by dog lovers? They’re a sort of extension of a pet, if you like. And while I will concede that SOME dogs are useful (police dogs, sniffer dogs, mountain rescue dogs and so on), has it not occurred to you that for every one of these dogs there are a few thousand totally useless, crap-everywhere, indulged PETS?

AnkleBiter January 24, 2015 at 11:44 am

Ugh Everywhere I go, it’s all about dogs. On my local Facebook groups where I want to find out about local businesses and how the roads are, all I see are people looking for dog sitters and “have you seen my lost dog”. Why are they always getting lost? Because they’re stupid and people don’t know how to keep them in their yard and home. I find myself avoiding people who I know are dog lovers. I see it as mental illness. I respect trained police, seeing eye and service dogs. Otherwise, they are useless and you’re picking up shit for no reason. And stop naming your dog Heather. It’s not your child. UGGH

Perhaps if dogs were so wonderful and intelligent they could teach their owners some manners.

Canetoad January 24, 2015 at 1:26 pm

Here is an example of a ridiculously light sentence for someone who let three mastiffs get out: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2924514/Pictured-Horrific-injuries-suffered-man-mauled-three-devil-dogs-bit-100-times-killed-springer-spaniel.html#comments They mauled an elderly chap and bit part of his ear off, bit his wife and killed his spaniel. The comments section is surprisingly intolerant of the bull breeds that did this (maybe we’re getting somewhere). However, if the man’s own dog hadn’t been with him, and it was just he and his wife who were hurt, I wonder if the comments would have been so sympathetic?

Christian Woods January 24, 2015 at 1:38 pm

Dear dogsfromhell,
Hemy’s posts aren’t appearing at all. Hemy posted once last night, again, then a couple times today including her test post. I think there’s a glitch in the spam filter.

AnkleBiter January 24, 2015 at 1:44 pm

“well,you can talk to them and they will listen and not criticize you.”
Tell them you have stuffed animals for that and they don’t stink and crap in the yard.

Have you tried filing a harassment report for your noisy neighborhood dog? I had a drive by barker that drove us nuts for almost 2 years before I had enough and took video to the police. They said if it’s happening every day, it’s harassment. I filed a free complaint in the municipal office, a few days later he was subpoena’d and the drive by’s stopped! Went to mediation 2 months later and he signed an agreement not to do it again! Check your local municipalities.

Thank you for your service.

Canetoad January 24, 2015 at 1:59 pm

Lily, I found this page regarding nuisance barking. It’s dated 2007, but I doubt that things have changed that much since then: http://answers.uslegal.com/animals/1747/

monica January 24, 2015 at 2:19 pm

A 7 year old was killed by his 2 6 month old puppies. Most are reporting it as dogs but theyre puppies. Anywayd most people are reporting the breed but it Was said to be a bully breed but they said not a pitbull? Huh? Anyways there was also a full grown bully there too. It was not involved but the owner euthanized it? Something isnt right here.


Henrietta Everett January 24, 2015 at 2:30 pm

If people chose to have an animal, then they have to be careful on the type of animal they pick. I wouldn’t recommend getting a large dog that is known as a bully breed for a 6 7 8 year old at all. Get a kitten or something that’s small or easy to control.
Then again this is coming from a cat lover.

dogsfromhell January 24, 2015 at 3:53 pm

Many doggers have problems with human relationships which why they turn to dogs. Its really all very dysfunctional. They also often perceive themselves as victims . Latching onto pits is really all about themselves and not the dogs.

dogsfromhell January 24, 2015 at 4:01 pm

The few that actually serve ANY useful purpose are far outweighed by the number of these vermin that have infested our communities, crapping up our environment, ruining peoples lives with dog noise, attacking, maiming and even killing humans.

dogsfromhell January 24, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Christian I agree with you. Its really annoying. I think I retrieved all the posts out of spam. Let me know

lily January 24, 2015 at 4:24 pm

I may have fixed the barking problem by getting my landlady involved. She is anything but a slum lord and wasn’t happy about a barking dog lowering her property value. I didnt go to her sooner because it seemed so trivial at the time.We ran into each other at a biscuit shop and talked about the problem over coffee.She pretty much told me to not spend any money on a lawyer and let her handle it.Its been 3 days and no barking. We’ll see how long it lasts.

Peaches January 24, 2015 at 5:21 pm

I just got a kitten, who just got out, and was attacked by the neighbor’s dog. My lil kitten was killed. Her name was Cinnamon. She was just 3 months old. Sheesh, I hate dogs, I really hate them. I had the door open, just to get the groceries inside, and she got out, she was the cutest ever. I loved my little Cinnamon……

Peaches January 24, 2015 at 5:50 pm

Cinnamon was MURDERED, not killed, sorry….

mfatpony@aol.com January 24, 2015 at 6:36 pm

Peaches. we live in a world where cats are considered collateral damage for the dogs that kill them. Doggers will insist that the dog was only doing what was natural to it. Dogs are filthy animals and I hate them more all the time.

mfatpony@aol.com January 24, 2015 at 6:43 pm

Therefore, at least to his way of thinking, the dog owner can’t comply with your request that he quiet his dog, and he can’t defend not complying. So always, such people respond to that situation by manufacturing a new scenario, one in which you are victimizing them, and they are merely standing up to your tyranny. You can count on the pathological dog owner trying to put that spin on things as he attempts to convince all concerned that the true essence of the problem is that you are an evil person who is out to get him.

from your link DFH. This describes my neighbor to a T.

kn January 24, 2015 at 6:54 pm

Peaches, I love cats and would personally “take care” of any dog who harmed my cat. I’m sorry about your poor Cinnamon.

Peaches January 24, 2015 at 7:13 pm

Thank you all for your comments. I buried Cinny with a yellow rose under a tree. I clipped a lock of her fur, and put it in a silver locket. I will remember her startling blue eyes and the way she always draped her tiny body over my head when we slept. I’ll always miss her. She was mine, and I was hers.

mfatpony@aol.com January 24, 2015 at 9:24 pm

Lily I’d advise the lawyer you mentioned. It might be worth it to have him contact your landlord. Sort of keep everyone in the same loop. My personal albatrosses have kept their mutts quiet for a month or more at a time only to release the hounds when I presume they couldn’t stand them any longer in their house or where ever they stuffed them. For this to go on so long and to have so many complaints and them to add a second dog doesn’t bode well as a long-term solution. I’m so glad you have the peace and quiet everyone deserves to have in their own home and yard. People who engage in a pattern of disruptive behavior will in the end paint you as the real problem. To get a bark collar, train the dog, take it to a shelter or dispose of the beast means you win. It’s a power struggle in their eyes. It no longer has anything to do with the dogs , which as you describe it means they care as much about it as my neighbors give a crap about their hounds. which in my case is two filthy dogs in a long line of neglected untrained mongrels who will likely be followed by more when the current ones end up hit, shot or just come up missing.

Canetoad January 25, 2015 at 3:21 am

If a Top Ten list of things that doggists say were to be compiled, I think it might read like this:

1. I hate humans.
2. My dog is cleaner than your child.
3. He’s never done that before.
4. They were once known as the nanny dog because they are so good with children.
5. I always clean up after my dog.
6. You can’t trust people who don’t like dogs.
7. Dogs are more loyal than humans.
8. A dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s.
9. It’s not the breed, it’s the owner.
10. Dogs are very intelligent.

I’m sure this list can be added to (the items are in no particular order). Any suggestions?

Had Enough w/Canines January 25, 2015 at 6:31 am

11. My Dog is my child
12. Dog’s have just as many rights as a human
13. My dog is so smart
14. Don’t get close when he’s eating!
15. I bathe my dog regularly

Had Enough w/Canines January 25, 2015 at 6:38 am

Substitute #13, (Since you already said that) with my favorite, with “Just tell him not to jump.”

AnkleBiter January 25, 2015 at 7:52 am

8. A dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s.
I’ve heard this so many times. The thought of swabbing the inside of a dog’s mouth for bacteria count makes me hurl.

You know how many times growing up I had doggers tell me they named their dog my first name? They think this is flattering. I thought it was disgusting and had a huge complex about it until I grew up and realized they are mentally deficient. When are these creatures going to be extinct?

Henrietta Everett January 25, 2015 at 10:48 am

The list of excuses doggers come up with for their dogs’ behavior could fill a book that would take a millennium to read at a skim. I don’t even want to think about how long it would take to read properaly.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 11:27 am

Favorites for the rural people
1. everyone lets their dog run free here. they don’t hurt anything.
2 I can’t afford to fence in my whole property to keep my dog in.
3 My dog was on my porch when it happened
4 I can either tie my dog up and let it bark or let it run loose and be quiet. you can’t have it both ways.
5 I let my dog, cat have litters of puppies and kittens. It’s good for the kids to see life happen and I always find a home for the pups. and cats can take care of themselves. ( my neighbors mantra)
6 My favorite. Truck driving up and down dirt roads with owners in back yelling and often crying because beloved family pet didn’t wander home at supper time.
7. It was just a duck, chicken or rabbit you can get a new one at the feed store for a few bucks.
8. your horse kicked my dog and i need you to pay the vet bill. ROFLMFAO.
9 Being warned by a dog owner that it isn’t safe to ride, walk or bike down their road because of their dog.
10. Thinking that since homes are close together their packs of hounds day and nigiht barking can’t be heard.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 11:31 am

Biggest lie dog owners tell. I clean up my dogs crap. I have never once seen my neighbors over here looking for the monster piles their loose mutts leave. Never, not once. It also blows the argument that the dog was on the porch unless it’s the neighbors themselves crapping in the yard. Which probably isn’t out of the question here either.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 12:35 pm

It was aren’t close together. #10

Sass January 25, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Peaches, that is so terrible about your Cinnamon. I am sorry to hear that had to happen to you. I would personally take care of the dog myself, but I know not everyone feels the same way.

They love to attribute human emotions like compassion, understanding and intelligence to dogs and then they maul/kill children and other people’s pets. Really compassionate, understanding, intelligent behavior there…

Sass January 25, 2015 at 1:24 pm

Another thing that I cannot fathom about dogs being so “intelligent” is that it seems most of them will eat literally anything they can get their teeth on.

Drop a sock on the floor? Shatter a glass? Nuts/bolts/screws? Spare change? Dollar bills? Anything. They’re so dumb they’ll eat things that AREN’T EVEN FOOD. And when they’re done destroying their toys into bite sized pieces they’ll eat that, too.

I’m sure there’s cases of every animal eating something they shouldn’t, but I’ve never seen that issue personally with cats. Yes, my cat will bat around my pajama drawstrings, but I don’t have to worry about him EATING my clothing. With dogs it’s a constant worry about them EATING ANYTHING. I mean they actually INGEST this crap, like it’s FOOD.

Years ago, my aunt’s middle-aged dog just decided to randomly waltz up to the Christmas tree and eat an ornament. I believe it was rather elaborate, decorated glass, and he died at some point after a struggle with the vet.

Nothing says “smart” like chowing down on some broken glass…

Pitbull puncher January 25, 2015 at 1:52 pm

My entire family and I should be hating Peurto Rican people because one out of the millions that are around killed a family member of mine trying to protect someone.

Yes some dogs are ugly, mean, aggressive and can be dumb at times. But they aren’t all the same. They’re animals that don’t know any better and can be trained. Hating a animal that does not even care that you are angry towards them is pretty funny. Like they understand as much as we do. Thats shows a lot. Think about it. holding on to past experiences hurts you more than what you’ve experienced.

Release it from yourself and see how much you won’t care anymore. Might even make you a better person.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 3:29 pm

My friend is a part time dog sitter. Once, she was spending the weekend dog sitting at a house and I loaned her a DVD in case she got bored. She ended up buying me a new one because the dog actually chewed the DVD and the case! She showed me the mangled mess. Until then, I had no idea dogs were that stupid to chew up vinyl and plastic. Intelligent animals my ass.

Canetoad January 25, 2015 at 3:45 pm

Here’s an interesting one hot off the press from New Zealand. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11391923 Pitbull Puncher (great name for a dog apologist – well done) will be glad to note that it doesn’t mention … er … ‘Peurto’ Ricans.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Canetoad. It’s common for doggers to equate hating dogs with being racist. I find it amusing the author of the link you posted is seen with a breed that is so far down in the genetic tide pool it can’t reproduce without human intervention.
You can juggle facts and make any case. The root cause of the problem are dog breeds that were never meant to be pets and loose dogs. There is a huge difference between a dog bite , an attack or a mauling.
Zero tolerance for loose and stray dogs would do more to stop dog attacks than all the education to owners and innocent victims that don’t act right when they are confronted by a loose dog. The conversion of the dog catcher to animal welfare officer was a bad move. Banning and confiscating all bully breeds goes without saying.

Pit bull puncher January 25, 2015 at 4:14 pm

Lol The name pit bull puncher was intentionally for you as you can see and the others yet to respond. Just a name and doesn’t mean anything. Because it gives those something to say who have nothing logically to respond on the bigger picture of my “2cents”.

kn January 25, 2015 at 6:37 pm

Pitbull Puncher, I don’t like the way ANY dog looks. I’ve never smelled a dog with a pleasant scent. No dog on the planet has a sweet-sounding bark. Some dogs, I admit, are “well-behaved”, but I do not want to be anywhere near them. My distaste for dogs comes from a cumulative picture of their character and behavior as a whole, so there might be a few exempted from my disgust, in certain aspects only. I’m not going into psychotherapy to find out why just looking at a dog bothers me. I hate liver, too, but I wouldn’t see a shrink about it. What’s wrong with venting about how I hate dogs/liver/smog/whatever? All you dog-nuts who take your mutts into public places: keep your slobbering beasts far away from others who might not welcome a questing, snuffling wet snout.

kn January 25, 2015 at 6:41 pm

I need “Pitbull Puncher” telling me how to be a better person. Har har har!

dogsfromhell January 25, 2015 at 8:14 pm

PP, Can’t help wondering if the name Pit Puncher isn’t Freudian Check out Why Dog Owners Are The Abusers of Dogs.

mfatpony@aol.com January 25, 2015 at 9:31 pm

Dog lovers don’t find this blog by accident. A 7-year-old child was killed by 2 six month old pitbull puppies. Already in the comments that have not been shut off there is the drivel about them being raised by abusers, no one has proved they were really pitbulls and the child had to have done something to set them off. And there is pitter outrage that the older dog who was reported to not be involved was euthanized along with the two puppies. I guess pitbull puncher would like the world to forget about the victims of these attacks since they don’t happen every day and it’s better to just move forward.
Many of the comments here display that thinking. While more and more have posters openly calling pits what they are the pitwits always stand out. Mandy appears to need some serious intervention.

Canetoad January 26, 2015 at 1:41 am

I am so thankful that I live in a country where pitbulls are banned. There are still some around – some have exemptions (which shouldn’t happen, but it does) and the rest are kept covertly by the usual suspects.

The upside is that you don’t see packs of pitbulls running around loose, because their dopey owners know they will be seized. The vast majority of pit bull attacks in the UK happen in the home, when the sweet nanny dog that has never shown any sign of aggression decides that the baby will make a nice snack or it nannies its owner far too enthusiastically.

The comments on UK dog-related articles seem to show a growing level of intolerance towards bull breeds despite most of the comments being gushingly dog-oriented. If there were to be an outright ban on pet ownership of certain breeds there would still be a lot of breeds available for those who want a dog.

Personally I would like to see dogs become extinct but I guess one has to be realistic!

Had Enough w/Canines January 26, 2015 at 3:43 am

“Release it from yourself and see how much you won’t care anymore. Might even make you a better person.”

Why not take your own advice and stop trying to change what you can’t? Like I said before: Some people hate snakes. Do you also have a problem with that?

Just keep your stupid fleabag away from us. We hate dogs.

dogsfromhell January 26, 2015 at 7:24 am

“Because it gives those something to say wo have nothing logically to respond on the bigger picture”

Pit Puncher,

You should avoid avoid any references to logic and reason…..probably not your forte.

henrietta Everett January 26, 2015 at 7:46 am

Doggers just can’t learn to except that we don’t want anything to do with their dogs.
Nor can pit bull owners seem to except that there’s a reason why everyone is scared of them. One nearely killed my cat Sanguini, that’s actually how i got her.

AkleBiter January 26, 2015 at 4:06 pm

I once saw in my Facebook feed that an acquaintance came home to find her small dog beaten. She left her dog out in the yard and surmised that her big ol’ meany neighbor beat the dog, just because he hated it. I imagine the dog was yapping incessantly and the neighbor had enough. She showed pics of the dog and while I felt bad for its face, I can understand the neighbor’s rage and secretly wanted to hi-five him. She vowed that doggy would never be left alone in the yard again. Mission accomplished, neighbor.

mfatpony@aol.com January 26, 2015 at 6:36 pm

AnkleBiter. I’m not surprised . It’s not something I choose to do because I’ll be damned if I’m going to give the owners of the rancid mutts next door any legal footing against me. I don’t really blame someone when they lose it like that. Dog owners always seen shocked and huddle together at times like that totally ignorant of how they are contributing to the problem.
I don’t see having to drop kick a mutt grabbing my pant let or pepper spraying one that is charging me as anything but abuse by the owners themselves for letting their dogs run at large.
The trouble with self-help is it gives the upper hand to the very dog owners creating the problem.
Then again I wouldn’t testify against the person who shut the mutt up you mentioned if I caught him ramming a tire iron down it’s throat.
One of the funniest things ever was when my neighbors told me they had to complain about a barking dog. Really after decades of pleading with them to shut their hounds up they couldn’t see the irony of that.

This dog lady was going on & on about how friendly and well trained her mutt is, I didn’t participate in the conversation but I was wondering why she just doesn’t find an apartment that’s dog friendly instead of b*tching to a landlord that clearly stated no dogs allowed…oh wait, that’s logic and most doggers seem to lack that.

mfatpony@aol.com January 27, 2015 at 9:09 pm

AnkleBiter, the scene in Babadook where the mother strangles the little white dog that looks just like the machine gun barker next door is one of my favorite things. I just chased them back where they belong by setting off my car alarms.

the worst are the dog owners and worshipers who loudly declare that they “don’t trust anyone their dog doesn’t like” and that they “don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like dogs”
as if disliking dogs automatically makes you an evil person. i guess if a dog mauls you, your child, or your cat, you have to continue to love dogs out of fear that some stupid moron dog owners will label you “evil”.

K0ZM0S January 28, 2015 at 1:40 am

“don’t trust anyone their dog doesn’t like” and that they “don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like dogs”

That’s because dogs pick up on people who don’t want to be near their sh!t-covered drool (excuse my Algorian). They make up some bs to pass it across as some moralistic POV in order to make you feel bad about yourself, because in truth, they can’t handle their eGO(dOG) being told to shove it whence it came.
I can shapeshift my thoughts and ‘love’ a dog and it won’t pick up any cues whatsoever, I guess it makes me a genius! People are so stupid these days. If I offend anyone, then you’re meant to be offended.

Boy this place is like a haven for sane people.

dogsfromhell January 28, 2015 at 5:56 am

I am surprised that this doesn’t happen more often.

i heard a news story recently about dogs who were poisoned because they ate hotdogs that had been stuffed with pills that someone had left lying on the sidewalk…. I think whoever left those hotdogs out really hated their neighbor’s dogs and were sick of hearing them barking endlessly.
Common sense would say that if you own a dog and you allow it to bark at nothing when you live in a residential neighborhood, you should think of the other people who have to listen to that noise and have respect for them. But dog owners lack common sense. If you do try to complain to them about their dog’s noise, they will most likely become aggressive with you, or they will pretend they will do something, but then do nothing…. Typical dog owners who value the right of the dog to bark over the right of humans to enjoy peace and quiet.

Hahaha January 28, 2015 at 6:23 am

Lol dogs are for idiots. Our problems are valid. I could care less about dogs and hate them. I was chased and bit by one as a kid. People are more important than dogs. God created animals while dogs are mutant,hybrid, freaks of nature created by the perversely dog obsessed. Hopefully someday all these genetic abominations will become extinct. After all they can only be inbred for so long until they simply evolve into EXTREME monstrosities with so many defects they just bite the dust. Thank God there are some sane people in the world. Doggers are such Dumb@$$es! Hey and what about that dullard Pit Bull Puncher?! What a creep!

Bulochka January 28, 2015 at 7:24 am

Absolutely agree, I hate dogs too! And I hope you were able to impound the dog which killed your cat.

Henrietta Everett January 28, 2015 at 8:04 am

Dog rights? peh! every time i hear someone say that their dog has the right to bark/bite whoever they want i feel like either throwing up on them or subjecting them to the guillotine just so i don’t have to share a planet with them.
Guess what, i have the right to live dog-free as much as i want, and i have the rigt to defend myself or anyone i care about from dog attacks, even if it means hurting someone’s pwecious wittow doggie woggie.
by the way the problem is no less back home in Manchester then it is here in Manitoba.

mfatpony@aol.com January 28, 2015 at 8:24 am

DFH, I’m pretty sure it happens a lot more than reported. Loose dogs out here get disposed of all the time. Even by other dog owners.
Hey Zoop. I could start putting out decent food, pet and play with the neighbors mutts and inside a week they’d be living on my doorstep. They look for shelter and food and crave human interaction. Heck I could probably even rename them. A few weeks later they would happily jump in my car for a ride to a shelter far far away.

AnkleBiter January 28, 2015 at 9:15 am

I need to do a better job acting. It seems like they know I’m not a fan and they stick their nose in my crotch all the more. When I tell people I’m not a dog person (and I’m being polite, because I’d rather say I just hate them outright), I get looks of shock and disbelief. How could I not love these smelly, noisy beasts, they ask. How could they be such big lovers of the odor and slobber, I wonder. I may need acting classes to pull this off.

Kelly January 28, 2015 at 3:24 pm

I love how people say I have a messed up life and people must hate me. Why because I like animals? My life is going just fine thank you. I have a wonderful husband and children as well as lots of extended family and friends. Mfatpony: In my opinion, your hateful and arrogant attitude tells me that you might be the lonely bitter one not me. You just proved my point why I prefer animals to some humans.

mfatpony@aol.com January 28, 2015 at 3:48 pm

I meant Kozmos. Cold meds.
Dogs don’t have mystical powers of insight. If they are picking up any cues it would be from their owners that they guard as a food source.
AB when a dog jumps or sniffs i either kick it away or jam my knee in their gut. It’s a lack of training enhanced by the dogs mutant DNA. To make a predator or meat scavenger human submissive man had dumb canines down. It also doesn’t make things easier that dogger think their mutt crawling all over them slobbering every orifice on their body as a sign of love.
Now flip that around when doggers claim that children who get bit didn’t respect the dog by grabbing or trying to take food.
Dogs are supposed to be submissive and take a gread deal of abuse. It appears the dog owners have been trained by their own mutts to be submissive to having their personal space invaded.

K0ZM0S January 28, 2015 at 5:04 pm

“Dogs don’t have mystical powers of insight. If they are picking up any cues it would be from their owners that they guard as a food source.”

Exactly the case. The dog was created as a slave race for the sole purpose of ‘protecting’ and helping the owner. THey couldn’t care less if the owner was Hitler (Who btw was a BIG dog lover).

K0ZM0S January 28, 2015 at 5:08 pm

Yeah I was pissed off at dog lovers (who happen to be 99% of the population), so what? I never broke any rules to my knowledge. You can call it incendiary, as I mentioned my dislike of most people who don’t care for others, but that’s what topics like this are made for – to vent and discuss our culture’s self-destructive woes. I’ve never been one to disrespect anyone, so I’d like the same in return.

K0ZM0S January 28, 2015 at 5:09 pm

I mean, You barely have a place to vent about something, and have to worry about censorship. What a joke, if that’s the case. No excuses.

monica January 28, 2015 at 5:28 pm

My family member who lives 5 blocks away found a pitbull that someone lost. it obviously just had pups too . Anyways the owners took it back but then gave iy bag a day later. So now my family member has 3 pits. One is blind and dying. One unneutered and now this female who isnt fixed. Her son told mw theyve already mated a few times and they want to sell the puppies. Great ! More effin pitbulls in my neighborhood. I never walk around here cause theres one in every front yard! Ugh I dont like it. Well its been a month since theve put this dog.in their home. Ill keep you guys updated on it. These dumb people wonder why I dont visit.

mfatpony@aol.com January 28, 2015 at 11:32 pm

DFH. I don’t know why doggers can’t just keep their mutts to themselves.
Dog owners often state they prefer dogs to people. Adding the qualifying adjective ‘ some’ to the people part is an attempt to make it look better. Either their friends and family are whipped into submission and endure the dog worship or they only associate with dog owners like themselves. Or they say things like I don’t like or trust anyone who hates dogs.
I have plenty of friends and family that love dogs. Some I have no issue with others I avoid like the plague.
AnkleBiter I now have to go bleach that image out of my mind. Ewww.

Canetoad January 29, 2015 at 12:18 am

Kelly, one day a dog might go for one of your children and upset your happy little world. You make the mistake of thinking that people who don’t like dogs are unhappy and bitter. ‘Liberated’ – from the expense, the stink, the pee and crap on the carpet, the utter dependency – would be a more apt term. Why do people like you find it so difficult to accept that a lot of people cannot stand these stinking animals? If people want a dog, that’s their business – but they shouldn’t inflict it on people who hate the things.

Had Enough w/Canines January 29, 2015 at 2:12 am

It’s because people kowtowing to dogs are insecure, wayward beasts themselves. Those of us with any kind of backbone stand up and speak righteously for those victimized by these filthy animals.

Had Enough w/Canines January 29, 2015 at 2:42 am

I’m sick and tired of my local news becoming all about dogs. Three stories every night about some stupid dog either being victimized or updates on past injuries reported.

What is wrong with our society? Dogs are not defenseless victims that need constant saving. The are proliferating at an alarming rate. I am actually concerned there might be laws that keep us from speaking out against dogs, or force us to care for any that are injured. We already have a law that if you hit an animal with a vehicle, you must report it, (in California, that is).

Doesn’t anyone see the Emperor isn’t wearing any clothes?

The news story about the Go Daddy commercial with the puppy getting lost, then sold. The news reporters asking the public how they felt about it was ridiculous! Fictitious story – people reacting as if it was true. I mean, STRONGLY reacting to a fake story on TV. They pulled the commercial from the Superbowl because of these reactions, (not that I really care). Wow, dumb.

AnkleBiter January 29, 2015 at 10:49 am

People actually shed tears over that stupid commercial. Yeah. We have huge issues in the world today and they’re crying over puppies.

I once had a neighbor who was pet sitting this moppy mutt. He left it outside for a whole hour barking. Thirty minutes in, I called our animal control officer. He was actually a local man who came when you called. He went to the house, rang their bell and told them they had to keep the dog inside. I will never understand how dog people can sit in their homes, hear this unholy noise and not be bothered by it. And of course, oblivious to the fact that others will hear it. This is why dog people are demented and deranged.

sugary spice January 29, 2015 at 1:17 pm

“We have huge issues in the world today and they’re crying over puppies.”

AB- We must remember that most doggers will openly state that they “hate all/most humans”, and would rather save a mutt over another human being. Instead of forming healthy and natural relationships with humans, their devotion is to a shedding, barking, dirty beast that craps everywhere. I do not understand how anyone can live day to day with a brain that holds such a stupid, ridiculous mindset – nor do I want to understand. Dogs are not special and should not overrule the rights of humans and serious worldly issues.

sugary spice January 29, 2015 at 1:46 pm

Adding on to the list of what typical doggers say:

1. You are just ignorant and don’t know anything about dogs.
2. You just haven’t met the right dog(s) yet.
3. Dogs are intelligent, important, loyal, and save people’s lives, we should be thanking them. We need dogs just as much as they need us.
4. People who don’t like dogs need religious or psychological help.
5. Barking is how dogs communicate, so get over it.
6. (In reference to their dog’s bad behavior) – It isn’t that bad/just get over it/ it was just doing what comes naturally to it/he is friendly/he won’t hurt you etc
7. My home/car/belongings/furniture do not smell like my dog.
8. Dogs won’t betray and judge you like humans will.
9. Dogs are sweet and innocent creatures who just do not know any better.
10. *insert random negative comment about cats here *

I don’t see the point in mentioning cats when someone does not like dogs, not everyone who hates dogs happens to love cats. We are talking about DOGS here, not cats.

mfatpony@aol.com January 29, 2015 at 6:14 pm
Henrietta Everett January 29, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Seems to me like doggers often put their ideal personality on to their dog, stating that it is so loving and what not. The reason whythey have to project this on to a dog is because these are traits they don’t have.
I’m sure kelly has an excellent life, but that excellent life may not turn out so excellent if one of your dogs or another attacks someone related to you or even yourself. I don’t want that to happen nor would i ever wish that upon anyone for any reason.
I also wouldn’t want people to be kept up all night because some idiot can’t shut his or her bloody dog up for 15 minutes so we can actually sleep and not spend all night trying to figure out ways to block sound even with the windows and doors closed tite.
We shouldn’t have to hurmetically seal ourselves into our houses to sleep peacefully should we?

dogsfromhell January 29, 2015 at 8:23 pm


Insurance is based on facts and statistics not the irrational reasoning of dog nuts. Of course we all know which breed takes first prize on this list

mfatpony@aol.com January 29, 2015 at 10:58 pm

We shouldn’t have to hurmetically seal ourselves into our houses to sleep peacefully should we?

The general thinking of the dogger is that you should indeed shut your windows and turn on a fan. Yes you get to be a human captive in your home while the neighbors break the law and let their dogs run loose and bark all night. Better yet listen to the doggers blaming a toddler for not knowing how to behave around a dog. Or an adult who is savaged facing dogger ridicule for not knowing how to behave when their killer mutt got out for the hundredth time.
Of all the things I hate about dog owners is their self entitled attitude .

DFH, covering dogs under homeowners is like offering a special rider on a policy for meth cookers to protect their neighbors from fumes and possible explosions and flying bullets. insurance isn’t going to cover or even offer to cover something like that. I don’t see much difference between the dog breeds listed on your link and a meth house on the block.
We had a meth cooker down the road. The mayhem he caused before being hauled off for the final time is the same kind of disruption you have when a neighbor has nuisance dogs.

Adder January 29, 2015 at 11:32 pm

Another thing I absolutely can’t stand is when someone says “Don’t be mad at the dog. Be mad at the owner.” Why shouldn’t I be mad a dumb dog for crapping in my yard or knocking over my trashcans? In any other situation it would be perfectly acceptable to direct your hatred toward the animal. All you have to do is replace the dog in the scenario with a coyote,deer,raccoon,cat,squirrel, or whatever and you’ll get a totally different response from doggers. But it’s not cool if I’m mad at an innocent doggie woggie. Hell, dogs are more invasive than any other animal I’ve encountered. The whole “dogs can do nothing wrong” attitude that these people have gets to me more than I should allow.

Canetoad January 30, 2015 at 4:46 am

Here is a prime example of the stupidity of dog owners. http://fox2now.com/2015/01/06/woman-devastated-over-shooting-of-her-dog/ Her dog gets out, it’s shot dead near a chicken coop, the chicken owner says it got in and killed several. The dog owner’s response? “It was really hard I can’t imagine why someone would want to shoot her,” she said. Never mind about the pain and suffering of the chickens, eh?

Had Enough w/Canines January 30, 2015 at 5:24 am

Long ago, I had a friend whose 1 year old daughter got curious about the family dog’s eating time. She got too close and their precious rescued mixed breed craphound nearly tore her face off as it dragged her to drown her in the fish pond.

They were at first devastated they had to make a choice about the dog. Then from somewhere sense prevailed and they gave the dog up to the needle. I don’t know what happened after that, whether they got another dog or not, but the child recovered with, thankfully, minimal injuries, and I never went to visit them again.

The moral of the story is no dog is safe. They had that dog for seven years before it ever showed any kind of aggression.

Henrietta Everett January 30, 2015 at 8:17 am

@had enough w/canines
Even if there was a dog that lived for a millennium, and in that period of 1000 years he never bit before, once he bites someone now, that previous record no matter how long it lasted is now ruined.
One attack, that’s all it takes. I don’t care how sweet the dog is, he still atacked someone and should be “put down” for ever.

Sarah January 30, 2015 at 8:21 am

Saw a Go Fund Me fundraiser for a bulldog’s vet bills. This guy is expecting people to donate their hard earned money so his precious baby can receive chemotherapy. The nerve of some people…this is also why I hate Go Fund Me, because any idiot can make an account begging for donations for vet bills, vacations, etc. That site is intended for legitimate charities, not so you can beg internet strangers for money because your stupid dog is going to cost you $1,000+ in vet bills.

Gillian January 30, 2015 at 1:00 pm

We got a dusting of snow last night and today I see a bunch of dog prints on the front walkway. I know it’s a neighbor’s dogs who frequently get out and roam together. What can I put out there to mess with them but not get in trouble or attract other animals?

Canetoad January 30, 2015 at 2:27 pm

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, a dog owner does something so bizarre you’d never think of it in a million years. This woman arrived at an airport in Nebraska with her FIVE dogs: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2933448/Woman-arrested-allegedly-drowning-puppy-airport-bathroom-arrested-posting-bail-time-theft.html She was denied boarding because one of them was a two-week-old poopy, and carrying such a young craphound is against the rules.

Not to be outdone, she left two of the dogs with her parents and returned to the airport with three – two in carriers and the poopy hidden in her hand luggage. When it was discovered, what did she do? Er … she drowned the poopy in an airport toilet!

This is, of course, yet another example of dog owners, rather than dog haters, being cruel to craphounds.

dogsfromhell January 30, 2015 at 3:36 pm

Gillian, Dog treats stuffed with a habanero pepper

Sass January 30, 2015 at 3:44 pm

The story in itself is cruel and unusual…But I laughed all too hard at it being referred to as a poopy in writing. I’ve always called them poopies in my head, so funny. And true.

She probably believes it can easily be replaced with two or more awful poopies subjected to her cruelty.

Sarah, People who have pets should be responsible enough to determine if they have the means to support a pet fully before obtaining one.

mfatpony@aol.com January 30, 2015 at 3:52 pm

AnkleBiter, Funny I had the exact same experience this morning while beating the snow drift off sat dish. I found a great deal on bulk cayanne pepper through Amazon. The nice thing is the snow tracks let me know their favorite path and will make it easier to just hit the areas they are going to. I bought Havahart critter ridder and it worked but was expensive compared to mixing up a good solution and spraying it. Hopefully it will also discourage their cats. Teh critter ridder lasted quite a while though.
It is interesting that the search for cayanne pepper came up with the critter ridder.

dogsfromhell January 30, 2015 at 3:55 pm

mfatpony@aol.com January 30, 2015 at 4:19 pm

Canetoad. have you ever heard the racket one little puppy can make when it’s scared ?
That subhuman shows up with two yorkies and three puppies. Gives two puppies to her parents and gets caught with the last one and her only option I guess was to drown it in a toilet.
A quick check shows that a puppy has to be at least 8 weeks in Nebraska to be sold. I hope they run this one backwards to where she got the puppy.
Doggers seem to need a lot of supervision don’t they?

mfatpony@aol.com January 30, 2015 at 5:13 pm

DFH and Sarah. The viable option when you can’t afford the treatment for your pet or you don’t have the credit to fund it is euthanasia. Many dogs and cats are subjected to hellish treatments and months if not years of suffering so their egotistic owners can claim they saved its’ life.
Or they could save money and drown it in the toilet. I hear that’s trending now.

Face Palm January 30, 2015 at 5:36 pm

Kelly posts “I love how people say I have a messed up life and people must hate me. Why because I like animals? My life is going just fine thank you.

Cool story, Kelly. Go back to your charmed life and leave the people who don’t love dogs as much as you do alone. I have a dog, he is a great dog, but I’m not going to come on a website thats dedicated to people who are not fans of dogs and demand they should love dogs and say things like “the more people I meet the more I like my dog”. Some people don’t care for dogs, and honestly just because I have a dog doesn’t mean I like other dogs and sometimes I like their owners even less.

AnkleBiter January 30, 2015 at 8:16 pm

Face Palm. I’m well aware many dog owners don’t like other dog owners. The discussions about dog parks are eye-opening. If only they could see that the very things they are complaining about are the same things non dog owners find so offensive.

monica January 31, 2015 at 1:49 am

So those parents of the 22 month old can be charged for that? My god. I wonder why parents think pits are good family dogs . I would think a lap right would be a better fit. A chihuahua would run if you kicked it but a pit will keep attacking even when being tased! With the same taser that’ll take down a huge muscular man.

I also seen this video on youtube about the 6 year old feeding 6 male pit bulls . All adults and the mom records and sounds insane with her lion tamer mentality .

Sass January 31, 2015 at 11:42 am

Monica, that video was incredibly disturbing.

I can’t remember if it was on here, but someone posted a link to an Animal Rights Facebook page that even said the video was wrong and put that girl in danger. It wasn’t even backlash about dogs, it was concern for the human child.

The comments made me physically angry. Doggers will lash out with death threats and hateful comments even there are no anti-dog comments made. Because how dare they not let their small child play with 6 huge doggie woggies.

Comments saying she was safer with the dogs than most humans. Again, typical dogger commentary. It makes me sick. If you think that a dog can literally raise or watch your child there is something severely wrong with you.

mfatpony@aol.com January 31, 2015 at 5:37 pm

Monica. I’m all for making parents and all owners of dogs 100% responsible when their dog goes bad. This is probably a bad case to bring . I don’t see a jury unless they are composed of people like me nailing their hides to the wall. Waste of time and money. In fact I expect them to end up looking like the victims.
Then again in many cases there is no one but our justice system to speak for the victims and casualties of dog mauling and attacks.
I believe it was the lexus project that posted the video in a call for dog owners to use common sense. Reading the comments you can see pitters have no common sense.
As long as there are states with one bite rules on the books dog owners are going to find an easy way out. No dog should get what is equal to one free bite.
Having a pet is an elective choice. That alone should bind the owner of that animal to full responsiblity under civil and criminal law from the day they bring it into their home.
I’m sure the advocates for this family will claim they have been punished enough by having a dead child. The question is where is the justice for the child.
Own the Breed, Own the Deed. Put that on a bumper sticker pitters.

mfatpony@aol.com January 31, 2015 at 5:46 pm
AnkleBiter January 31, 2015 at 8:02 pm

Pitts look so innocent and docile….until they suddenly rip your child’s face off for no reason!

mfatpony@aol.com January 31, 2015 at 8:50 pm

AnkleBiter. As someone who specialized in sport horses I looked for the conformation that said all the time and energy to train one had a high probability of paying off in the end.
When I look at a pitbull type dog I see the characteristics that make it perfect for what it does best.. Grab, hold, shake and kill. It’s whole body is proportioned to do exactly that. I’m also guessing the calm demeanor and lack of normal canine aggression before launching an attack adds to the surprise and like a predator it does not waste time and energy in body posturing. They go in for the kill.

Face Palm January 31, 2015 at 9:02 pm

Amen, Mfatpony. I never go to a dog park where owners let their mutts run free with no leash. It’s just asking for trouble because the less responsible owners think their dogs are like kindred spirits and their precious pooch could never do no wrong and they can look deep into their dog’s soul and think their dogs has this profound understanding within. That is utter horse manure, it’s a damn dog. Dogs can never be fully trusted and many owners discover this while at a free range park and get pissed when one dog attacks another dog or a person and ends up with a law suit and huge medical bills.

I also can’t stand when people compare their dogs to kids or people. Every time I hear “my dog is my child” or the term “fur child or fur baby” I just want to slap them. There is no biological connection to a dog, your dog isn’t part of your family’s legacy, you can’t create life with your dog (which I’m sure a few of those dog nuts with their unhealthy attachments have tried), they can’t marry their dog, (I’m sure that’s been tried as well) you can’t watch your dog grow up, go to school, become a success, get married and start a family and carry on that legacy for generations. That’s not how it works in life, so they need to just stop with that crazy crap and seek professional help.

Also the term “puppycide” annoys me.

mfatpony@aol.com January 31, 2015 at 9:26 pm

What if a carseat caused as many deaths of just babies per year as the family pitbull ?

mfatpony@aol.com January 31, 2015 at 10:44 pm

Face Palm the problem is there aren’t just a few irresponsible dog owners making life hell for everyone. It’s like some mega church taking up residence on every block and demanding that they have the right to freedom of religion no matter how miserable they make your life. In fact you can hear the chanting join us. In this case their beliefs include nonstop barking and the freedom to use everything as their toilet.
If you’re a decent person more power to you. I have simply lost the faith to believe that there are responsible dog owners left.

Canetoad February 1, 2015 at 3:43 am

Why do dog owners think everything has to revolve around them? I have just seen this on the DogLost site: “Owner is out postering and talking to people all the time, there are some lowlifes that keep taking the posters down, perhaps they have shares in printer ink – who knows – not helpful or public spirited though is it.”

What they are doing is flyposting – which is illegal in most (if not all) areas of the UK! They don’t seem to understand that not everyone cares about the damn dog that wouldn’t have gone missing in the first place if it hadn’t been for someone’s – usually the owner’s – carelessness! If they want to put posters up, they can pay a nominal sum and have them in newsagents’ windows (where no-one can tear them down, where they can appear quite legally, and where they can get their message across).

Incidentally, they don’t always take the posters down when a mutt has been found. There is one of their posters in a shop window near me for a missing dog that was found around three weeks ago. I’m sure there are some dog-oriented people looking out for this ‘girl’ every day because they still think it’s lost.

Quite honestly, I’m staggered that they think they have the right to fly-post everywhere, but not entirely surprised.
