    "Pet" peeves

    I've enjoyed this thread. My big "pet" peeve is animals dressed as people. It just creeps me out. Another "pet" peeve I have is when people call their dogs their children. Again, it weirds me out.

    Breeding Conflicting Beleifs

    This is totally off-topic, but Cagney, I just loved this. :):):) I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard. Oh would that it be true! Can you imagine the family relationships if you actually had a right to not be bothered? (sidenote: I'm not talking about the restraining order type...

    Question about buying supplies from a pet store that sells animals

    Well, what's good for the goose, you know .... Besides, wasn't your original question answered? Didn't you say: And I think it's hilarious, by the way, that you've totally reversed yourself on the whole being less hostile/more welcoming/etc by being just as rude and hostile in this thread as...

    Question about buying supplies from a pet store that sells animals

    I think this post was pointless. :):):)

    Ohio legislation to ban pit bulls.

    I just have to comment on this - this is *not* a good idea, no matter how docile, sweet, small, tame, whatever your dog is. It's *not* a good idea not matter how much you trust your dog. Dogs and children that young should not be left unattended together - that's just asking for problems. I...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    Everything was misinterpreted because your most current post is almost entirely different than your first post. What changed in between your first post and your last to make your experienc so dramatically different? And coming to the site and saying, "I bought my pig at Petsmart before I...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    Direct quote from DrawingWord's first post in this thread. The shelter pigs were "mean." And too old. And sometimes being "nice" backfires ... and makes people think that what they are doing is more acceptable that it actually is. It is much better, in my opinion, to take a firm stand on...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    You know, quite a few people make this claim ... that some members are rude or mean ... so I would like to challenge you to provide me some concrete examples. Please private message me with quotes pulled from members who have posted in *this* thread, which are arrogant or rude. Personally, I...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    A lot of those "free to good home" ads come from backyard breeders. You do those people a favor by taking those animals off their hands. The fact remains that you can't save every animal out there, and unfortunately, you have to be selective about the ones you do save in order to send a...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    I'm the one who said your post was emotionally manipulative ... and I still think it was/is. It's manipulative, because you're trying to control the way people feel/react to it. You first tried to get people to tell you that you did the right thing, and to cover yourself if people weren't...

    Tired of People...all of them.

    It sounds like you're rationalizing your actions. But what are you trying to achieve with your post here? Do you want people to justify your actions by saying you were right and good to pull the pig out of a bad situation, that certainly you couldn't have left him to become snake food? Or do...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    Also WI is not the sole center of the universe. (though, of course, it might seem like it to you.) Hunting seems to be a national activity, and the idea that human beings need to "control" the deer (or fox or pigeon or whatever) population seems to be widely accepted. Even here in TX people...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    Human population control, while germane to this topic, is not the issue at hand. And communism doesn't have anything to do with population control - it's a socioeconomic structure for a classless society. Without human interference, the checks and balances of nature would regulate the...

    Frashy - I can't even follow your illogical train of thought. You can't know that you'd rather die from a bullet wound than a wolf's teeth because you've never experienced either. My point remains that death from a hunter's bullet is not the sanitized, instantaneous death so many people...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    Frashy - there is much about your post I don't understand. Human beings have hunted many species of non human animals to the point of extinction or near extinction. The fact that they haven't yet done so with wild deer is irrelevant and doesn't make hunting of deer morally right. And the fact...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    This veers off onto a whole other topic, but "responsible" hunting to control population isn't necessary. Populations of prey animals are controlled by many unnatural means, by either habitat destruction or the elimination of their natural predators by human beings or through artificial...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    I don't think PETA is any different than any other organization, like the Democratic or Republican party ... or the NRA ... or Green Peace or anything like that. Do those groups police their members and throw out the ones whose behavior/ideals don't exactly line up with the "party line?" Of...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    And just to reiterate: Not only is no PETA bashing allowed, but also, no rumor-mongering. Unless you have concrete proof that PETA as an organization believes in the types of philosophies discussed in this thread and can provide the links/references, then that type of discussion is to be...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    I don't give two cents whether or not you personally support PETA. What I do care about is whether or not you're spreading unfounded rumors abou their philosophies which may *unfairly* influence others not to support PETA. If you can provide proof that the organization as a whole holds the...

    Peta's website: petsmartcruelty.com I know its truthful but

    I want some verification from you that shows where PETA, as an organization, endorses not altering companion animals or not keeping companion animals. If you can't provide this kind of documentation - proof - then you are not referring to PETA as an organization and are instead referring to...
