    How does this person compare circumcision of infant boys and tail docking in dogs?

    The circumcision is not purelly cosmetic. It has the benefit of cleanness and not future possible infections because they are not taking care properly. Unless you spend 18 yrs remembering your kid to clean it and a lot of years doing it yourself. Good Luck trying to touch your 13 or 14 yrs old...

    How Many? 3 or 2?

    Pet store or rescue?

    If you leave your guinea pig there, they will take it to an unexperience vet. Never leave your piggei, if you don't know who is taking care of him/her. They can euthanize it and then give you a new one... The easy way out for them of course.

    Veg*n Confessions of a meat eater.

    Ground Beef is a mixed of parts. What is left from the cuts if you preffer. I don't mind eating anything that comes from an animal. But, if it looks gross I wouldn't have eaten it too. Hot dogs are another scary thing.

    Hi from Weeki Wachee Florida

    Welcome to the forum! I pretty much see 2 big mistakes. For starters I would have not go to the petstore to get my GPs. There is a huge overpopulation problem and I am sure that you could have give a great house for any 2 in a shelter (waiting to get euthanized for lack of adoptive parents)or...
