• Is this animal abuse?

    So I know a guy who has a blue heeler puppy and whenever it pees on the floor or something, he will grab it by the neck, slap it hard, throw him on the ground and down the stairs.

  • Should I feel guilty about not wanting the dog?

    When my hubby and I got married and moved in together he brought with him his 12 year old dog which he had had since she was a puppy.

    When my hubby and I got married and moved in together he brought with him his 12 year old dog which he had had since she was a puppy. I'm not a fan of dogs but was ok with having her there since it was important to him. I took to the dog, I bought her food, took her for walks, loved her. We ran into an issue though because our home didn't have a doggie door and his old house did. Soon we realized that she was starting to pee on our carpets. I never got mad about it but my husband did and he actually blamed me for it. He said that since I won't allow the dog to sleep in our room at night she has free run of the house and can't let us know when she needs to go out because the door to our bedroom is closed. He said I'm selfish because I didn't want her sleeping in the room with me (due to her snoring) and I didn't want to get up in the middle of the night to let her out. It made me so mad because I didn't want the dog to start with and I felt I was compromising enough by even agreeing for her to live with us. I feel I deserve a decent night of sleep. So he gave her to his parents and she is thriving over there. She has a doggie door and is loved. However, last night my husband told me he wants her back because he misses her. I said absolutely not. I put forth so much effort into compromising and caring for that dog and got no recognition for it. Should I feel guilty for not wanting the dog back?? She is perfectly happy with his parents and he gets to see her whenever he wants.

  • I find it disturbing that society cares more about dogs than people, does anyone feel the same?

    I find it deeply disturbing that people seem to care more about dogs than about their fellow humans suffering. In area where I live, there was a lady that was very ill, living in her house. Her neighbour has a dog who's excessive barker. Barks all day, and all night. If it's not sleeping or eating or taking a crap - it's barking. Sick lady couldn't sleep at night because the dog wouldn't stop making noise. This went to court, because there was no other way, dog's owner was uncooperative and unsympathetic to woman's pleas. Court decided that owner had to keep his dog indoors during the night hours only. And now we come to the sweet part. The media was outraged by this decision, claiming that the dog's rights were violated. They were out of their minds about it, some internet comments were that the woman complaining should be put to death, and they called her all sorts of nasty names. Please comment!

    We English live in a society of filth, corruption, fornication, and men and even young people hooked into porn and other depravity. We have also sanctioned the most gravest sin of saying that man should lie with another man and be called husband and wife. The heavens must quake. We let Rotherham happen, and our government invited in millions of our old enemy from the east. Could it be that we English could also be wiped out like the people of Sodom were due to our sins? My chef made a capital leek and carrot soup. The Welsh rarebit also went down a treat. At weekend my entourage of chefs from Germany will be coming to help make Christmas Black Forest cakes and help me prepare Christmas for my village.

    Best answer: No, of course not. You had some wonderful times with him, and you clearly love him so so much, that obviously never ever went away, even if you got a little busy. He knows that; he knows how much you love him, even if he's older and more tired and not as interested in things, he's still the same dog on the inside and he knows how much you love him. He is just tired. Nothing you could have done would have changed that. He's just had a full life, and there is a time he has to move on. It sounds like he's already begun that process, but it does NOT mean he doesn't love you, or know that you love him.
    Sit with him and tell him how you feel. He might not understand your words, but he will understand their meaning.
    It's normal to start your own life and drift a bit from your family as you become an adult, and it's natural in dog packs too, and your dog gets it. It's instinct. That is okay.
    Make the most of your last day or so, don't spend it mad at yourself. He would not want that.

    Best answer: And they did exactly what dogs do! It could have been a spat over food or toys, or the other dog may have some health issues that triggered them to attack and cull out the weakling from the pack.
    Keep them separated when you aren't home to supervise. This dog especially should be crated, when no one is home, since he is too injured to defend himself in another attack.

    You forgive them because they are animals. They don't share the same morals as humans. They have no concept that killing is wrong. Their instincts tell them that killing is the right way to deal with certain situations.

    I need some options on what we could do with the dog, i'm mainly asking for my boyfriend so he can come visit me, He lives with his mom & she wants him to take care of his responsibility first. I live far away so this is a toll on our relationship if he doesn't figure it out he will not be able to meet my family until our early 30s or late 20s, I'm 21 now his dog is 5, This isn't something i want to wait out for it to work. I DON'T WANT TO PUT MY LIFE ON HOLD, Because he has to be at home with his dog. So we have to get something figured out for his dog & we're running out of options. He asked people he knows to watch her but all of them said no so that isn't an option for us anymore. Also giving her away isn't an option either shes a really stand offish, shy dog. He also doesn't want to kennel her while he's away. Please help, give us any advice that would help! thank you!

    I know I’m going to get crap for this, but I can’t afford the vet visit right now. I mean I could if it was less than $200, but every office I’ve called says they can’t give a price without seeing her and it could be anywhere from $100-$500. I can’t take her in, pay for the visit and testing ($100 on its own) and then having to wind up needing full blown surgery. I’m buying her a prescription ear wash, since I’m sure she has an ear infection which caused her to shake her head too much and cause the hemotoma. So I’m treating the root issue. Can I drain it at home? I have lidocaine, alcohol, bandages, and a cone. Can I make a small cut and drain after numbing it? Or is there some kind of home remedy I can use to help it go down? Or would it be best to wait it out? I read they do go away on their own, but it can take a while and she may be uncomfortable. I feel horrible leaving her in pain, I just don’t know what else I can do.
