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 been dating for about a week and more than half the men have dogs and when I asked some of the other half what kind of pets they want to get in the future they answer dogs. UGH.

Also I won’t date atheists either. I am not religious and I don’t care to go to church. I feel that God is everywhere with you and even though you can’t see it you also can’t see love because is invisible and there are other invisible things in this world that we don’t see. Maybe God is not a person sitting on a throne giving orders but some sort of all mighty superpower that governs and creates universes. It’s something that you feel inside and it’s hard to explain but you can’t spend a whole life next to a person that you can’t have a deep conversation about creation and God and looks at you weird or treats you different because you believe in an invisible entity.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 6:23 am

StopTheDogMania: Sorry to hear you have a “thing” about not dating atheists. Most everyone I know is one. Me too. I have no belief in religion and left it at age 9.. But I am nearing the end of my life and I look forward to “my next great adventure” out there whatever it may be. I can have a DEEP CONVERSATION with anyone — never had a problem. But, I can’t get my “head around” the GOD thing. Sorry. I allow people to talk to me about ANYTHING, but if they try to “convert” I have to decline the offer.But I can still have a great conversation with any kind of believer. In my life of travel I have “met them all.”

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 6:28 am

My claim to fame, so to speak is, that I can talk to ANYONE about ANYTHING and have and do. You would be surprised at what you can learn from letting someone just talk and you listen. But I always have my 2 cents worth to add to any conversation.

StopTheDogMania August 27, 2014 at 6:41 am

I don’t have a ”thing” against atheists I just won’t date one. I traveled and lived in different countries and I can assure you I talked to all kinds of people and had different kinds of friends and boyfriends from different backgrounds and cultures. People that were Muslims, Catholics, Christians, Amish, Pentecostal, orthodox, atheists, wiccans, Buddhists. I love to listen to all of their stories and appreciate their believes but I’m not religious …I’m spiritual and just believe in God. The person I choose to spend the rest of my life with will have to believe in God, I don’t care if he’s religious or not.

Christian Woods August 27, 2014 at 7:26 am

The reason why i compare unreasonable doggers to Westboro baptist church or other such religious extreamists is because of their attitudes.
Reveal to a religious nut that you’re atheist like me, oh holey hell you’re the worst thing in existance.
likewise, saying “I don’t like dogs at all” is the worst thing that you can say. Or at least for what i see as unreasonable doggers it is anyway.
Still though, the comparison is acurate, and i hope that reasonable doggers can see what i mean, just as reasonable christians see why i hate the WBC with a passion despite them both following christianity.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 8:10 am

Hi, Christian. I am really happy to read you are not a religious nut.
I have had so much of that. People try to trick me into “hearing a wonderful music production.” And it is a church choir. I know I’ve told you my daughter story. Took her to a pageant and when the Christ on the Cross came onto the stage she said: “Why is that man hanging up on the BIG T? This is barbaric.” (she was 9) She is a wonderful person but has no “belief” as such. Had to get her out of there PRONTO before we were burned at a stake!!

willko August 27, 2014 at 8:17 am

Speaking of religion or lack thereof,
Ever notice that, historically,dogs are often associated with evil and death -hellhounds, hounds of hell, devil dog, hound of Baskervilles, Cerberus, Dip, etc.
I think cartoon dogs go to heaven, though……

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 8:19 am

Yes. I have noticed that. Misguided people, indeed!

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 8:22 am

Thanks for the “clarification” on comment. I too have traveled the world — even though my family said: “no one from here (hick town in Pennsylvania) ever goes anywhere. My Mother could not understand my “wanderlust” and would often ask me if I had seen a certain place.
Yes. I had.

sugary spice August 27, 2014 at 8:50 am

I personally prefer to date non religious people or atheists. Christians almost always try to invite me to their church. I do not go to church. My family never went to church. We live in another state from the rest of the family. In my community, a lot of people have come from the south to the Mid Atlantic in search of better career opportunities. Me and a lot of the people I grew up with are the children of those people. The rest of my family in the south are religious. The south is the “bible belt” so religion is taken seriously there. In other words, if you say you are atheist you are going to get a bunch of crap for it. For that reason, I tend to avoid “bible belt” states. I hear a lot more about “God” then I would like to whenever I go down there. Religious nuts are very similar to doggers in that respect. As a recall, the bible states that dogs are dirty.

StopTheDogMania August 27, 2014 at 8:51 am

In the Bible, dogs are seen as negative. I haven’t read much of the Bible but there were a few places where people posted online paragraphs about dogs from the Bible and they were all negative. From what I have seen from my travels Americans are the most obsessed with dogs and portraying dogs as their children or family members. If you go and say that your dog is your son or daughter to most of the people in my country they would look at you like you are nuts and not to be trusted.

sugary spice August 27, 2014 at 9:00 am

STDM – What country are you in? If you do not mind me asking.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 9:01 am

Yes. Some people consider their dogs to be their “fur children.” Even that phrase is hard for me to type. I always tell them: children are toilet trained, go to school — maybe even get a couple of degrees. Dogs will always be dogs. They go nowhere. Hey, don’t let them crap in my yard!!!!

StopTheDogMania August 27, 2014 at 9:03 am

I live in US. I lived here for 16 years but I was born in Romania and lived in England too for 2 years

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 9:10 am

Thanks for the info. I spend 3 months in Paris yearly and I must say the French are getting better cleaning up after their dogs. True Story: Once I was in the fanciest department store in Paris and a young woman had a “dinky dog” which crapped on the floor. Being a few feet away: I yelled: “PICK IT UP.” Ah, yes, they do speak English. She bent and scooped it up and PUT IT IN HER DESIGNER PURSE. I have told this story dozens of times and I always find it
AMUSING and TRUE.

StopTheDogMania August 27, 2014 at 9:20 am

I rarely witness people picking up after their dog in Romania. There arent that many dog owners that walk their dog because most keep them in their fenced yard only. There are so many feral dogs around that wouldnt make much of a difference anyway but I am surprized to see people in US not picking up after their dogs.

monica August 27, 2014 at 9:53 am

Dogs are filthy. Thats all I have to say. They are the spawn of satan . Nasty mother fudgers .

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 9:57 am

Monica: I agree with you. I detest them with a passion because of
their foul smell. I love that phrase “spawn of satan.” It is a good one.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 10:03 am

dogsfromhell: I found an earlier post from you and must say it “covered all bases.” Enjoyable and TRUE reading! I still cannot understand how people have them in their homes (?) Dogs really do have a gagging (to me) smell and people’s homes who have them
smell the same. I cannot conceive of one sleeping in a person’s bed!

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 12:14 pm

Interesting conversation. Dogs and religion. Stuff insecure people cling to and project special powers onto.

Atheist does not mean without morals or standards it simply means you don’t subscribe to deity that spends most of its time beating a war drum in the name of peace and love with the given undertone believe like I do or die.
When you don’t have an imaginary friend to take the burden of your bad deeds you become more self-conscious of what you do. because you now own your own actions.
The similarity between the die hard dogger and the fundamentalist of any religion is astounding. Both come under the header of socially acceptable mental illness ( Thank you Lily)

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 12:32 pm

Addendum
I often shop at Wally on Sunday morning while the thumpers are busy elsewhere. Getting their late one day I decided to brave the storm and shop anyway. There is a creepy fundamentalist church up the road so they often stop there on the way home to shop. On their day of rest ya know. Anyway there was this woman I’m guessing early 30′s walking around clutching her bible. And the similarity between that behavior and people hanging onto their emotional support dogs makes a near mirror image of each other.

willko August 27, 2014 at 12:39 pm

I have a fair amount of dog-owners in my social circle. It’s unavoidable. Most of them mean well and most are somewhat responsible -except for the house filth and the stupid beasts wandering about during a social function. Obviously, they’ve lived with dogs far too long and are oblivious to proper social courtesy and hygiene. But hey, it’s their house. I have two poker playing buddies who both own dogs, two each.. We rotate game locations but I sometimes no-show when it’s at their houses and I have something better to do. I attended one time in a garage that had fresh pee stains covered with Lysol. Talk about a gag reflex! I’ve been in bar mensrooms that smelled better. Looking around I noticed the concrete was a mosaic of urine stains. They have had this dog that can’t be house-trained but thankfully they bring it in at night and put it in the garage. He admitted the dog is worthless but his wife is a “rescuer” type. Their house is like a barn and I never sit on the furniture. They’re decent enough people but I’m always reminded of the filth and squalor of medieval times whenever I visit.

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 12:55 pm

He admitted the dog is worthless but his wife is a “rescuer” type.
Willco

Yes that is the mentality. And it’s a near unforgivable sin to take the dog back to the shelter. Meanwhile at the shelter 100 dogs that could be or already are house trained are euthanized. There are reasons so many adult dogs are in shelters and rescues. Despite the every popular I’m suddenly allergic or we’re moving and can’t take it with us the real truth is the animal has behavior problems. But if you take it to an adoption fair and tie a bandanna on it you can find a sucker to punch up your adoption numbers.
I’m in no way advocating getting a dog simply that by using some intelligence dog and cat owners could inflict a lot less grief on themselves and their neighbors. Training a young animal that you know came from trainable stock you are molding its behavior patterns. Older animals with issues you have to unwind the behaviors and try to remodel the behavior. That’s why I hate seeing pitbulls in any adoption setting. They have a lame stress test and you know that dog was dumped for behavior issues. Likely some form or aggression.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 12:58 pm

Dear willko: Sorry to hear of your social circle being a “circle of dogs.” I just wouldn’t be able to attend any of their functions. Once I was at a meeting and the woman brought her dog into the living room for us to meet. It stuck its face near me (I was sitting and I began to gag.) The smell was horrible. I excused myself to rush to the bathroom and left saying I felt “unwell.” Never went back. Another time it was a “no dog” function and someone BROUGHT a big one whose head reached the buffet table. I had to excuse myself from there also. Said I was allergic and one biddy said: “I never heard anyone allergic to a dog.” I am — gag reflex. I’ve written this before but WHY do people think everyone LOVES DOGS???? WHO WANTS A DOG LICKING THE BUFFET FOOD?

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 1:03 pm

STDM, You might notice that the sane non dog-owning men here seem to be non-believers and very nice human beings. Also atheists tend to be more accepting of someone with spiritual but not necessarily religious beliefs than members of an established faith that will spend eternity trying to convert you. Someone who would roll their eyes at you for believing in something is likely going to disrespect you in many other ways.

NAOMA August 27, 2014 at 1:09 pm

mfatpony@aol.com: Thank you. I have been an atheist since age 9. “Insecure” people and “special powers.” That about sums it up. I have no belief in a hereafter. It will just be my “last great adventure” when I die. When I left church it was because preacher prayed that because we are all sinners he asked for the church to fall on our heads. Mentally challenged man who came every Sunday stood up and said: “Preacher you are full of S**t.” He walked out and I followed. Never returned. The preacher was in the church and had the church fallen it would have hit him too.
Kind of dumb? No? I have had a wonderful life and do not fear dying. I call it “my last great adventure.” Probably “coming soon.”

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 1:16 pm

Naoma. Unless it’s completely impossible I never eat from a buffet. The dog may have been gross but do you really think the owner washed her hands after messing with the dog ?

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 1:25 pm

I have no idea what if anything happens after I die. Everything doing with religion was and is made up by men to control the masses while they are living. A life of servitude. Live you life as you see fit and don’t cause harm to others.
Of course if there is a hell I wish dog owners there in special section . Forced to pick up endless piles of doggie doo and wipe every surface below knee level to remove all the piss. All the while the background is filled with mindless barking. Oh and once a day satan should stroll though with his hell hounds and make them ohs and ahs over them while the beast chews off an arm or a leg.

Not too soon Naoma, you’re too much fun.

StopTheDogMania August 27, 2014 at 1:27 pm

mfatpony@aol.com: My family members including aunts and uncles and grandparents had about 3 different religions while I was growing up. I was dragged into different type of churches and heard different sides of the same book called the Bible. I never liked religion and I do not want anything to do with it. I do believe in God and nobody can take that away after some experiences I had in my life. I feel that I want to meet someone that is close to what believe in. The issue might be that it will be a hard person to find him but I’m sure he’s worth the time :) I have no dogs in my life right now and after putting up with a 130lbs shithound for a year I finally have bliss. I see dog owners as attention seekers with emotional problems that cling to a poor animal for their assurance that they are loved. GAG.

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 1:37 pm

STDM I just don’t want you to think atheists have horns and cloven feet. My husband believes much as you do and it’s never been a point of contention in our lives although we’ve had some good debates. That’s not code for fighting we actually discuss it. Now the dog he had we argued and fought about.

monica August 27, 2014 at 3:32 pm

I am a christian and im so offended by all your post. Lol just kiddin . I actually was an athiest for years but made it back to my religious beliefs. I do not attend church. I drink wine, caffeine and if I didnt have a child id smoke weed too. I have seen ufos and believe in aliens. I believe that dinosaurs once roamed this earth. So basically id tick off any christian because theyre so close minded. I wont talk or argue with another Christian about my beliefs or interest. I dont think that a good hearted athiest will burn in hell simply because the christian church scared them away.

Oh gosh I just remembered this . My sister says dogs go to heaven . I said no honey they stay outside the gate they’re not allowed in . Only cats are.

Anyways back to religion . There are 2 jahovas witness or mormans who will not respect me n keep trying to push their religion down my throat. I keep saying no n they keep coming . Those kinda religious people scare non believers away.

So back to dogs . They are polluting this beautiful earth . Theyre destroying human minds and relationships and they have to go. Im moving back in with my inlaws and already put and ad online for them . The females leaving this weekend and I have to convince my father in law to get rid of the male. See the dog rules the back yard which is nice and has lots of fruit trees, its perfect for a child to explore but my dad in law would rather have a dog than a happy grandchild . Seems like this is regular thinking for dog lovers. Theres no way id go near the dog and my son sure wont so What do I do ? We have to move in for financial reasons but how do I get rid of the damn shark dog so I can live in peace?

mfatpony@aol.com August 27, 2014 at 4:23 pm

I don’t discuss religion or politics. It’s a can of worms and no matter who you are someone ends up frothing. Much the same I don’t run around telling everyone I hate dogs.
Unlike doggers and bible thumpers who show no shame in trying to inflict either their dog or their god on you.

I looked this up because in the space of a half hour I have seen 3 bulldogs on commercials. How any dog lover could own one knowing how they are bred and the horrible health conditions is beyond me. Probably should have been on the blog about abusive dog owners.

No problem naoma i do the same all the time and knowing my audience before I speak is how I try to live my life since I travel alot.One thing I love about being in the military is getting into our national parks for free(not all charge but some do)so Im trying to visit all 58 along with some historical sites.Thankfully I’ve had more good experiences than bad but unfortunetly I’ve also learned that some people will find a way to be judgemental no matter what.At first I was excited to talk to other atheists in the more left leaning states like Cali but when they found out they couldnt attack me over religion they would just find other ways to judge ….like my accent : / This wasnt good natured banter(that all we do in the military)it was just really nasty personal attacks much like kelsey was doing.

http://blog.dogsbite.org/2013/09/maul-talk-manual-20-language-of-pit-bull-owners-advocates.html

This is interesting. A stat is quoted as 2/3 of all pitbulls entering shelters are surrendered by their owners.- In a 2013 report, Animal People estimates that two-thirds of the pit bulls entering U.S. shelters annually are surrendered by their “keeper.”

Don’t know the validity of that number but shelters seem to be overflowing with pits and the pit-mixes.

lily August 27, 2014 at 6:09 pm

myfatpony the number seems legit.My younger sister got in a little bit of trouble and had to do community service at the local animal shelter.She was actually excited at first since she loves animals and was thinking of working there part time if they let her but after two days she was begging to finish her service at the library instead.She was scared to to open and clean alot of the kennels since a large majority of the dogs were pits and pit mixes…it was her job to remove the dogs and clean the cages.This is really saying something since we grew up in bad neighborhoods where people let their dangerous dogs(rottweilers and boxers mainly)run loose.I know this will make the doggers livid but we carried sticks(baseball bats)when we walked to school or the store so we could bust them in the head when they charged us….and charge us they did…ALOT.No barkiing or growling or tail wagging…they would just stiffen up and run at us full speed.

monica August 27, 2014 at 9:15 pm

Ya Pitbulls are scum. I was willing to leave my husband over his. He swore it was a family dog. His sister claiming theisr used to let their son ride ut like a hoarse . Ya I still didnt care. I knew better than that and now a wife less and family less man in his 40s is going to adopt the female dog. Aka the b word. And ways now the male has to go n ill do anything . Including staging a walk in the park to give it to some person crazy enough to take it or ill drop it off at the shelter. Then ill buy a bottle of champagne n a nice red velvet cake and celebrate .

Honestly, why do people even like bulldogs or breeds that look similar, like the pug? Those dogs are BUTT UGLY. They are far, far from “cute”. I have been around a pug, the sounds they make are just nasty. Those dogs cannot breathe properly and have many health issues. Bulldogs drool and fart like crazy. Why do people like dogs who drool? That is just more mess to clean up! The fact that they cannot reproduce properly, is proof that they should not even exist. In nature, those dogs would have become extinct.

NAOMA August 28, 2014 at 6:37 am

I work at a very large Art Museum in my City. Last night they had a special party for the gay, lesbian, bisexual people in the community — it was a free meet-up — but anyone could come to the museum. TWO MEN came in at separate times with HUGE dogs with the “saddle” on. I found it offensive. You need comfort in a museum. STAY HOME. Fortunately I was the “door greeter” and did not have to interact with MUTTS AND MASTERS. I do not think you need to bring dogs of that size to a museum. Lots of kids around. Any comments? IT is FAR WORSE bringing them on an airplanes
(UNCRATED) but really people…if you need comfort at an ART museum — STAY HOME.

sugary spice August 28, 2014 at 6:46 am

It looks like someone’s dog has, yet again, pooped by my regular bus stop. I am certain it is the same dog. And of course, I never see the owner or the dog that create the mess. The mess is near the same spot where the dog hap pooped previously. Now I have to make sure I look down to avoid stepping in the giant crap pile. It is just disgusting having to look at dog poop first thing in the morning. I refuse to pick up after anyone’s dog. I pick up enough poop already at home.

NAOMA August 28, 2014 at 6:48 am

WHEW those dogs are butt ugly — whatever that means. Actually, I think ALL dogs are ugly. Just wrote that I work at an art museum
and two people with “saddle dogs” came in. If you need comfort
going to an art museum. Stay home.

Monica – ugh, I hate Jehovah’s Witnesses. I have to stand there and listen to them ramble about nothing. I throw the little “articles” they give me directly in the trash. I do not tell them I am atheist because I fear that they would ask me a bunch of questions about it, making me stand by the door longer than I have to. I am not the type of person to just slam the door in a person’s face, but I do have a strong desire to do so whenever they come around.

This was from a book I read YEARS ago. About a Marine. What to do: Carry a plastic bag or even a can with soup (mixed with water).
When you see the dog crap (turn your back and discretely throw
the soup all over the ground – like you have thrown up — miss your
feet.. That will be enough to have the man and dog move on
and maybe make the man sick). WORTH A TRY!!! Be sure to gag
loudly…worth a try????

NAOMA August 28, 2014 at 7:57 am

I probably wrote this: Last night at an art museum man brought his dog. My husband works there too and apparently a second person brought one also. (I missed that — probably busy ‘greeting people.’
BUT TWO DOGS IN A MUSEUM!!! NONSENSE!!!

monica August 28, 2014 at 10:27 am

Naomi* I remember going to the getty museum here in laand I cant wait to take my son because I remember them having cool stuff for kids. If I seen I dog there though id vomit. These dogs do not belong near these beautiful pieces of art. If a dog hair ended up on the mona lisa im sure it would probably burn lol.

And about the jahovas witness they gave me their bible. They are trying to make me get baptized . They wont stop I told them not to come by and guess what ? One night we are struggling to get the baby n jogging stroller upstairs and they come straight to me. Ugh. My husband walked away and I didnt know what to say . I mean what do you say when you already say we are not at all intrested please stop coming and they come anyways ? Next time ill prwtend my husband is mad n just say I gotta go by . N close the door. Which is always open and they can see us through the screen .

monica August 28, 2014 at 2:59 pm

My husband talked to his dad last night about getting rid of his mutts. He agreed to get rid of the female but said hed talk to my husbands brother about getting rid of the male pit bull. His brothers in jail so idk why hed be stupid enough to ask him. So im really hoping he will get rid of the SOB! Hes only 5 years old so hes not going to die anytime soon. When we move in I will not allow my husband to feed it. Since his dad wants him so bad he can .

I am so utterly disgusted right now. I’m so glad for a site like this that will allow me to vent. I’m at work right now and one of my co-workers brought their nasty, no good dog in. This is about the 3rd time a co-worker has brought their dog in. This particular demon dog is making these loud, guttural, hacking sounds as if it is going to throw up. WTF?!! The sound is loud and offensive. I can’t see the dog since I’m in another dept, but I can hear it. Thank goodness I can’t smell it. It is so gross. It was making this noise when I was on the phone with a customer. How professional is that? Every time it makes that hacking noise some of my dogger co-workers giggle like it’s cute. I just love how employers try to enforce certain codes of conduct and espouse professionalism, but will allow some filthy, smelly dog to be in the office. This dog-loving culture is so sick. I can’t wait to leave my job today. I’m so glad I only have 15 minutes left. SMH

Jehovah Witnesses are as bad as barking dogs and just as hard to get rid of. I had one try to open my screen door and come in a few years ago. To date none of them have had the chutzpah to knock again. However I have no doubt as the flock changes and new acolytes come of age someone will be that stupid. LDS are harder as they are usually not from the area and don’t understand the ritual of a New Mexico Ejection from Property ritual.

Monica you should walk the pitbull and engage the JW . Ask them to hold the dog while you take information for their next temple meeting and then run.

mfatpony@aol.com August 28, 2014 at 5:54 pm

I can think of no place less suited for a dog that an office setting.
Dont’ hate me here. A large office setting is no place for dogs, babies and small children. Unless you are the owner fo a small owner run business it’s not every employee’s job to cater to the whims of pet parents and human parents. I was actually asked to give up days off for a long-planned vacation once so some parent could go to a recital. NO.
Just who covers the dog mommy/daddy’s job when the mutt has to crap and pee.

mfatpony@aol.com August 28, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Naoma , dragging in a dog is one of the reasons the ADA on service dogs needs to be addressed. Reading on ES dogs they don’t even have to be trained. You can get an RX from your doctor and go to the pound and pick a dog. At least with real service dogs you have an expectation of them being well-mannered. Sick and disgusting behavior.

Re: dogs at work
I’m a retired opto-electrical engineer. I had a spineless project manager who would let the the software people bring their shithounds to work. They just sit and write code all day. I worked in the lab prototyping and aligning optical assemblies that often ranged upwards of $100K. Often I’d carry assemblies between labs. One day I nearly tripped over one of their fleabags. They were always roaming about especially around the lunch/break room. When ever they came into a shop area I’d spray them with oil or cleaner or lock them in storage areas. Finally, I went to the director and said if I tripped over a mutt with thousands of dollars worth of optical assemblies the project would not meet schedule or budget. The following week a memo was sent out – NO MORE DOGS……

Filthy rotten old staffie is driving me insane. He stinks

STFU August 29, 2014 at 1:55 pm

I get that dogs have things wrong with them but, wtf is wrong with you people? Taking your anger out on dogs. That’s stupid. Dogs kill smaller animals, ok but people eat animals every day. I once got attached to a deer that wandered around the neighborhood. Someone killed it and sold its meat. Dogs stink. Ok, maybe that means they need a bath. Its normal. You people are just crazy haters.

STFU August 29, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Dogs are amazing. They helped people and look up to people. Whats wrong with that?

STFU August 29, 2014 at 2:02 pm

What makes you better then any other dog? They at least have a life.
.

NAOMA August 29, 2014 at 2:33 pm

STFU: Well, if you have read the comments on here: dogs get angry, are sometimes ugly, and are deadly. They also smell foul, you have to pick up after them, etc. I hope I do not meet a human who smells like a dog and have to pick up after them.

NAOMA August 29, 2014 at 2:35 pm

WE all know what STFU means: Tsk, tsk. No profanity here…

NAOMA August 29, 2014 at 2:38 pm

Again to STFU: This is a “hate dog site” and if you have good things to say about them, perhaps you can find a “love dog site.” ??
Just a suggestion. We people love to rant about dogs and our dislike. No dog lovers here.

lily August 29, 2014 at 4:37 pm

STFU To bad eating dogs is unacceptable in western culture.Not that I would ever eat the nasty things but something needs to thin them out.
And btw what are you 10?Dogs dont have a life that is any way comparable to a humans.Eating,shitting,pissing,barking at nothing and humping random objects is not a life worth caring about.In fact its kinda sad that an animal that had once been so useful to mankind has now been downgraded to being a mere accessory for the socially awkward.
Their time with mankind has come and gone so let the damn things die off with some dignity.

Ihatedogs August 29, 2014 at 4:39 pm

I hate them. Anytime I’m out walking one always comes over and sniffs my shoes or my legs and their stupid owners do nothing about it. One time I was walking minding my own business and a dog passing me just comes over and starts barking and yapping at me and just tries to bite my shoes!! The so called owner did nothing!! I wanted to kick it but I would probably be in jail. Ugh that’s why I love cats so much more

mfatpony@aol.com August 29, 2014 at 5:19 pm

Ihatedogs. I’ve kicked the damn things off me. If a human being displayed that kind of behavior…see STFU above you would be justified in using reasonable force to get them off you. I’ve punted the nasty little ankle biter next door more than once.

mfatpony@aol.com August 29, 2014 at 5:33 pm

Lily it seems that almost all dog adoption fairs…ewww, are now pits or the cleverly disguised  (blank)-mix. My guess is these dogs are being surrendered around the 18 month to 2 year range. That’s about the time some of the distinctive behaviors show up and it’s irrelevant whether the dog has been altered or not. Sexual drive and hormones may drive but it is not the source of the aggressive behavior. All pits and mixes should be euthanised. It’s unlikely to shut the breeders down but at least it would keep the shelter rejects from getting a second chance to maul a human.

I live in a rural area. Until a few years ago most of the bad dogs were the heelers who were inclined to nip at your heels. Bad enough. Now its all the pitbulls and their bretheren. Either way you see people walking here with a golf club or baseball bat. While I htink pepper spray would stop a normal breed I’m not sure it would a pit in attack mode. You wonder how many people are going to have to die before the light is seen.

mfatpony@aol.com August 29, 2014 at 5:34 pm

Glad your PM listened to you.

Adder August 29, 2014 at 5:56 pm

STFU, you are entitled to your opinion, but this is a dog hating site. As others have said, why not try a dog lovers site. True, dogs were useful at one point, but they aren’t anymore. Lots have people here have stated why but dog people don’t seem to get it. The MAJORITY of dogs are highly untrained pets. If their main purpose is to pollute the environment and harass people then by god are they useful. As for the whole bath thing, I’m sorta tired of hearing this from doggers. I’m not trying to be rude, so please don’t misinterpret my tone. But dog people do not comprehend that dogs have a natural odor even when “clean”. They stink. Period. Dog lovers always come here making the same points. Y’all aren’t gonna convince us that dogs are anything more than a bother.

NAOMA August 29, 2014 at 6:11 pm

I guess I do not understand why anyone who loves dogs wants to write to this site. We, the people here are those who hate dogs. If you like them — perhaps you need to find some kindred spirits where you can talk about your love of them?.

lily: Great comments.

mfatpony@aol.com August 29, 2014 at 7:54 pm

Doggers that come here are trolls who probably troll and cause trouble on other sites. I would not be surprised if this is one of our recently banned trolls. They are if nothing else clever things who would spend hours bypassing a block rather than picking up their dogs crap or shutting the damn thing up. IN fact I’m guessing here that most of the hostility is based on us hitting too close to the truth about dogs and their shoddy behavior about cleaning up after the beast or shutting it up. I see the pack mentality out here. The doggers put up with each other’s roaming crapping barking pos and guess what, I won’t. Anyone who dares to mention yet express hate for the dog or the owner’s behavior has a target on them. The neighbors little yapper kept trying to bite me in the road so I punted it when it tried to grab my pants. Took a few times but now the damn thing won’t come near me. I consider that a victory. If the owner doesn’t like it she can use a thing called a fence. Doggers who can’t shut their mutts up should use a shock collar. If the dogger thinks that is inhumane they are free to either supervise their mutts or train them.
I did get a laugh today. More and more little stores here are putting up the no dogs signs. Keep beng the jerks you are dog owners. The real human race is going to get really sick of your behavior and you’re going to do it to yourselves.

lily August 29, 2014 at 9:27 pm

Pitbull owners have a list a mile long about what can trigger their shitbull to attack.They will list everything but genetics and that because you cant blame genetics on the maul victims.
My aunt had a Basset Hound and ofcourse she never trained it…just got it and dumped it in the front yard.This dog was stupid beyond belief yet he got loose once chased a rabbit down,caught it and brought it to me without so much as a scratch on it.Everyone was amazed but it didnt surprise me one bit.Thats what Basset Hounds are bred to do just like pitbulls are bred to be stupidly agressive.I also wouldnt trust pepperspray to stop one.I’ve heard cops talk about it taking up to three shots to take a pit down.

mfatpony@aol.com August 29, 2014 at 10:27 pm

My neighbors had a Basset Hound. Dumbest thing on earth. Every time it got loose it came over here trying to get my rabbit. Had to literally beat it off the cage. No training at all along with being a box of rocks. It had a cat, probably one of their cornered over here and I had to beat it off with a shovel. It was creepy. I took it back once but there were bad vibes coming off that dog. Actually I think they’ve went through every breed of dog there is and managed to kill them all through neglect. Same with cats.
She just got done letting her mutt out to bark at 11pm. She’s a pot stirrer just like the ones that come here. Knows that dogs bark is like an assault weapon and personally I think she gets her jollies off it. 30 some year old woman, 3 little kids and she can’t find anything better to do than instigate trouble. They had some freaky bible verse on a sign in their front yard so we’re not dealing with a full deck on the best of days. And yet some dogger would suggest I go chat with her about it. BTDT.
I have a can of bear repellent just wish it was smaller. And isn’t that a shameful statement for dog owners. You can’t go outside your own door without protection. And we have one person here who’s afraid of going to jail for kicking a biting mutt off their person.

K0ZM0S August 29, 2014 at 10:38 pm

Hi StopTheDogMania. I feel where you’re coming from. I’m currently ‘alone’ due both to circumstances as well as reasons you stated above, except that I carry the ‘characteristics’ you speak of, yet am not in a relationship as a result of my way of thinking. Much like you, I have my own views about reality, though I deter from labelling anything as I’ve come to understand that words/language was created to cause confusion, masking objective perception and creating futile arguments.
We live in a society where the animalistic, Reptilian brain is targeted in an attempt to instill doubts, fears and thus create a despondent state of desperation. This is the main target of the mobs who’ve established a world where those who open their minds and eyes to any form of truth vibrations fall into a state of ostracization. That god you feel inside of you is the dropplet of the ocEAn (that is God), where Atheism and Theism merge into union, if you can imagine that. You can name this God anything and it will always prevail in its prime definition, because the definition of God IS oneness, and therefore a concept of “LOVE”, which is synonymous with oneness and empathy.

I don’t know how much sense my post will make, but it’s all semantics in the end when comparing subjective perceptions within the confines of language. As for religions; they fuse mostly truth with Lies in Order to sway BeLIEverse to look outside for ‘God’ and help, and not where the ‘God’ and help lies – within. It’s a funny game if you look at it from another POV, which I realize is not easy in a society replete with EMF radiation; toxins in foods; inculcation of lies and mundane shallowness in mainstream movies and musyck; inversions…etc…
Dogs have become just another pawn or ‘bait’ on their chess board of deceit; Something cuddly and servile to play pretend with – a toy with just enough sentience to be owned and used. Is not this basically why people become ‘addicted’ to drugs? Same concept. You won’t see dog worshippers become persecuted because it’s everywhere in Hollywood, thus inculpable in the eyes of the mainstream. There needs to be a powerful statement made with enough magnetism and intent – with enough numbers, to adequately ameliorate the mass hypnosis (dog worship being a mere strand of the trojan instrument).

The dog supersedes what they beLieve to be their ‘lover’ – a romantic concept that’s long been moribund in our society. It’s better to respect yourself and let Love come more naturally as opposed to playing pretend like many are conditioned to do, and for not more than a one-sided relationship. It’s easy for the mind to play its tricks when desperate until a Dog/Drug/Doll/Addiction/Obsession become replacements. As a romantic at heart, I can never see myself in a relationship where a dog, let alone anything/anyone came between our Love. As far as finding a partner with symmetrical beliefs; I’ve come to trust the ‘whole’ more in aligning my path. I know to find it (love) one must first learn to know themselves and respect who they are and what they want. If your bf/gf puts a pet or religion above you, then it’s your right to ask yourself if such a relationship is what you want. For me, the answer is a vehement NO, with all due respect to the others’ wants and beliefs. Let money, dogs, cheating, lying and disrespect become the ostensible ‘love’ lives of those who couldn’t care less to find what they were looking for and gave up somewhere along the way to ‘settle’. A very simple question should be asked: Is their love/respect for their dog/religion/beliefs/etc. stronger than their love for you? Is this acceptable to you? If not, then you’re better off not coerced into an incomplete relationship replete with drama.

LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — A jury on Friday found a man guilty of murder after his pit bulls mauled a woman to death in a high desert town in California where residents said they carried rocks and guns for protection against packs of dogs.

Alex Donald Jackson, 31, was convicted of second-degree murder and could get 24 years to life in prison at his sentencing scheduled for Oct. 3.

Jackson owned four pit bulls that mauled 63-year-old Pamela Devitt during her morning walk in Littlerock on May 9, 2013.

Devitt died from blood loss after being bitten 200 times, the coroner’s office said. Gashes in her flesh were so deep that bone was exposed

Thanks NAOMA, I appreciate your gratitude towards new posters, so long as they come with respect to the site’s rules. I don’t care enough to post on forums or online social communities, but fancied the way people are treated here. I guess the milieu of this community is akin to the same reasons why we dislike dogs and/or their owners (or the underlying causes of their ‘condition’). That perhaps we know a thing or two about respecting others and perhaps this has more to do with a portion of the brain that thinks outside the box (?).

Thanks either way, for helping moderate(?) the community for us to ‘vent’ our frustrations with the dog-eat-dog world.

K0ZM0S August 30, 2014 at 12:09 am

^ Many will beLieve that those who do not relate with their views of reality – whether they be theistic or moralistic (religion vs dog love), are suffering from some form of ‘sickness’ (throw in any detestable label). It goes straight back to the primal instincts and the fear associated with being confronted with opposite views, thus challenging their long-held beliefs of what is or is not acceptable. They respond because it gets under their skin. I don’t post at dog lovers forums because their existence does not shape or define mine… live or let live. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the lives of the minority of us who dislike dogs receiving the same treatment.

K0ZM0S August 30, 2014 at 12:29 am

My latest post didn’t make it. I wanted to mention to all dog lovers who post at this site condemning the members, of the futility of it all, and that my opinion is that the reason they troll this site is because of their insecure beliefs of what is ‘acceptable’. I did not mean to come across as offensive btw!

mikayla August 30, 2014 at 2:54 am

you claim that you will not allow hateful or rude comments about someone else, yet half this post is mocking Christians. As a Christian dog hater myself, I find it extremely rude. If you don’t believe in God, that’s fine, don’t hate on other people who do. You should respect all human beings.

Ihatedogs August 30, 2014 at 6:31 am

We’ve been babysitting a dog for one of my mom’s friends this past week and OMG this dog is truly annoying. first of all when i am eating it begs for food and barks at me. it really irritates me. I haven’t had a peaceful meal since last Thursday when the dog came. second i caught this dog sniffing my cat’s butt WTF?? i felt so bad for our cat. third we had the cable company here yesterday and the dog just kept barking and barking even though i was aware they were outside. i’ve never met such an annoying animal in my life. the dog leaves today and can’t wait!!!

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 6:45 am

Dogsfromhell , Bravo it’s about time the justice system started handling these murders like they should. After all dog lovers claim it’s the owners fault not the dog. Let them do time for the killings.

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 8:00 am

KOZMOS for all the talk of tolerance it seems that people are becoming not only more hostile but violent when confronted by ideals that aren’t in line with their thinking.

Mikayla, as a rule I’m not interested in anyone’s personal beliefs. However doggers come here either smiling at first or ranting only to descend into blithering tirades about their dogs killing us and condemning us to the pits of their hell. I live in a hotbed of fundamentalist zealots all of who seem to have multiple dogs and hostility issues towards anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their mutated sense of religion or dogs. I’m left feeling I have to not only defend my right to hate dogs but my right not to believe according to their thinking.

Adder August 30, 2014 at 8:40 am

Great news! My dad and step mother are buying another house and selling our current one to me,my sister, and her fiance. They will be taking all four mutts with them! After years of living with dogs I will finally be dog free. My sister and her fiance hate them as well, so there’s no chance another one will be brought into the home. I’m so excited I can’t stand it. We’ll get to reclaim out beautiful backyard. Not to mention the house is all hardwood floor, so once all the dog contaminated furniture is gone the entire essence of dog will be gone. This is going to be so great :D.

Monica August 30, 2014 at 8:58 am

Well good news here . My husband toldme he’d write his brother in jail and tell him he wants the dog gone. His brother is younger and usually does what my husband ask him to . So yay. Both dogs will be adopted to people who actually want the . Lion tamers as I call them. When they do go ill pop a bottle of bubbly “)

Monica August 30, 2014 at 9:08 am

Oh and that joke about leaving the dog with the JW , lol funny. Actually as we were on our walk some ladies gave us a paper and told us to check out this site. Okay sounded good but they didn’t say anything about what kind it was. Then I see JW.org then I put the pieces together. Why are they so deceptive ?

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Great news Monica. I guess the scary part is there are people out there that want those dogs.

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 2:21 pm

This is for Mikayla
I know that I often come off as quite harsh or religions. I’m old enough and have traveled enough to count friends from many places, cultures and beliefs or in some cases non-beliefs. All of them share one commonality. The ability to function in the normal world without letting a religion dictate their every thought.
I’m as offended by the hardliner atheists who have a fit over every symbol that might have religious overtones as I am by the fundamentalist cult behavior that has a basic join or die kind of thinking. People who fall into that are also susceptible to propaganda like never trust anyone who doesn’t like dogs and many more idioms that either vilify someone who doesn’t believe in a god or happens to really hate dogs. When any belief or behaivor starts to control you instead of broaden your spiritual growth and. notice the and, starts to press it’s belief on people who don’t belong it’s intruding on my personal rights. The dog culture has reached a near religious pitch in the US.

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 2:24 pm

Monica, I wasn’t joking.

NAOMA August 30, 2014 at 2:46 pm

Husband and I were at WHOLE FOODS TODAY and after we purchased our groceries we went to the booths and table to play
some Scrabble games before we left. A man (looking perfectly “able-bodied”) came in with a woman (also looked able-bodied) and a huge gray dog with the saddle. The booths are set up to have a coffee and something you buy at the market to eat. Disgusting, and they acted like it was their right and privilege to have the crapper on the floor. WHY in a market? Where they sell food and baked goods?. I am not surprised by anything these MUTT lovers do. Also, I was roundly chastised for using capital letters on a small article I wrote about French bread (from Paris). A woman (it could not have been a man) e-mailed me that using caps makes a person sound like an idiot. So be it.

NAOMA August 30, 2014 at 2:49 pm

The other night I worked at theater (I usher and I see the plays for free). Woman working with me told me with PRIDE — she rescues dogs from the pound and has 4. I was not interested, but smiled and soon had “something else to do — besides listen to her.” I did not
breathe because I was afraid she was “dog smelly.”

Monica August 30, 2014 at 3:29 pm

So I finally got rid of the female dog of my father in laws. Next my husband has to write his brother and tell him the killer male has to go and this family will be dog free . Ahhh yes , the joys of not having a dog.

willko August 30, 2014 at 3:43 pm

RE: loose pits
I find it astounding that in lots of these pit maulings neighbors and witnesses state that the dogs are often running loose weeks previous to the incident. Does anyone have a sense of self-preservation anymore? A roaming pit in my neck o’ the woods will get a suppressed .223 to the brain from a partially open window. In New Mexico it’s perfectly legal to shoot dogs attacking livestock, been there done that. Currently, I don’t live in those kinds of neighborhoods but I have used painful but less lethal devices and no dog roams or shits on my property, Wadcutters are your friend and at 600fps they will hurt like hell.
Also, if you have a sneaky neighbor mutt who comes onto your property at night, set out a live trap. I caught the neighbors shiteater in a trap and told her if I caught it again I’d drop trap, dog and all, into my rain barrel.

NAOMA August 30, 2014 at 3:46 pm

mfatpony@aol.com August 30, 2014 at 4:43 pm

Sadly Naoma religion and dog owners are one in the same in my trip to hating dogs. They have let various barking mutts carry on 24/7 for 20 years. The record for one bunch were the spaniels that barked and inbred with each other at will. Since no puppy ever left there alive I can assume it was either quid pro quo or there was 100% mortality rate on the puppies. At one point a few years ago their neglect exceeded what any normal person could endure and I called AC on them. In retaliation they used their standing in the crazy fundamental church to spread lies and gossip about myself and my husband. If you have ever been the victim of not just casual gossip or speculation but outright character assassination you have no idea how it feels. Even though we set the lies straight and proved not only were they lying but that they were indeed guilty of starving animals. But gossip like that never really goes away. And I’m not going to spend the rest of my life proving the filthy lies they spread about us. All thorugh that house of god they worship. Worse those in the church we contacted know the truth and yet refuse to confront the outright lies told. All of this because someone refused to put up with the endless barking and animal neglect anymore.
This is also why I encourage everyone being tortured by dog owners to document thorugh video or at least pictures the crap going on. The final note here I have never understood why they have pets of any kind. Nothing from the chickens to the dogs have ever recieved anyting but the most basic care on the best days. It’s one thing to equate animals with humans. It’s just as sick to treat them like disposable products.

NAOMA August 30, 2014 at 4:50 pm

mfatpony: What an awful story. Those “fundamentalists” pretty much ignore us. We have a “no solicitation policy” in our community and you can call the police who patrol the community in squad cars throughout the day and evening at random times. Today husband and I were playing SCRABBLE at Whole FOODS WHERE we did our shopping — at a booth (not with a high back.) Man and woman came in with a very large gray dog with “saddle.” We ignored it but it sat in the aisle near the booth. People had to give it a “wide berth” or go to an aisle large where you check out.

Willco on loose dogs. Along with the dogs that attack while on the loose I suspect that the family nanny dog seldom just snaps. The attempts to do away with breed specific bans has roots in making sure that the dog owner faces no prosecution when the mutt kills or mauls pets or humans.
What I can’t understand is why ? Of all the dog breeds why is there such a push to try and make a pitbull into a family pet. Other dog breeds may bite more often but you don’t hear about someone being mauled to death by a pack of floor rats.
Loose dogs are vermin and should be treated as such.

That woman at the theater last night told me she has 4 “rescue” dogs living in her home and is looking for more. Hope she has plenty of disinfectant or house perfume. Would not go to her place for “love nor money.”

Naoma , service dogs do not block the aisle. How awful to have fun time ruined by yet another dogger. Real service dogs are trained to stay tucked under their users legs or chairs.
It is not unusual for someone turns in abusers of any form to end up on the recieving end . Fear is one of the reasons so many dog haters are afraid to speak up.

“Dogs are amazing. They helped people and look up to people. Whats wrong with that?”

No, dogs are not “amazing”. They have long outlived their usefulness. As for helping people, a dog is not aware of what they are doing is “brave” or that they are putting their lives in danger. The dog just thinks it is playing a game/doing what it is trained to do and will get rewarded with treats and praise afterwards. I saw a memorial for dogs that are considered “heroes” (search rescue dogs, police dogs, etc) and all I could do was roll my eyes. Do people honestly believe police dogs are aware that they are taking down the “bad guys” to ensure the safety of the public? Are search rescue dogs aware of the complicated emotions a parent would have in thinking that they may never see their child again? I doubt it. A dog is not even aware of any of those emotions. The dog is simply doing what is what trained to do. Do you notice how when search rescue dogs are getting ready to search for something, how it gets excited and wags it’s tail? The dog thinks that it is just playing a game, it does not know that people’s lives are in danger.

The only things dogs “look up to” in humans is for food and attention. And you are correct, dogs have many problems. They smell, get angry, maul people to death, chew on things, ruin stuff, poop/pee everywhere, and many other things constantly discussed on this site.

Spot on Sugary Spice. Your analysis of how rescue and police dogs work was perfect.
