Banning Dogs as Pets

IMO, Obama puts the ‘family dog’ on another plane because he will not travel with it, as he & HIS religion considers dogs unclean. Poor Bo.

My dog is a local celebrity and he never leaves the yard. I walked in on a conversation about him at the post office the other day.

Strange, I tried going to your link more than ten times - it would show the page for a few seconds then skip to a nearly blank web page with a different URL than frontpage.com.

When I hit the back button, it would go to the dog story again but only for a few seconds and jump forward again to the same blank page.

I’ve never experienced that kind of page jumping before.

Is frontpage.com a “for pay” site?

Anyone else experience that?

Needless to say, I never could read the article.

Some dog quotes:

“I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren’t certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.” ~George Bird Evans, Troubles with Bird Dogs.

“My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.” ~Author Unknown

“The more I see of man, the more I like dogs.” ~Mme. de Staël

“They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.” ~Jerome K. Jerome

“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.” ~Roger Caras

“The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.” ~Author Unknown

“A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.” ~Robert Benchley

“You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.” ~Robert Louis Stevenson

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.” ~Josh Billings

“Children are for people who can’t have dogs.” ~Author Unknown

“The more one gets to know of men, the more one values dogs.” ~Alphonse Toussenel

This is how it happens, folks. Little by little. Law by law. The proponents of sharia get themselves elected to positions of power – and then, before too long, they start trying to subject the rest of us to it, bit by bit:

Hasan Küçük, Hague councilor for the Islam Democrats, says dogs should be banned as pets in the city, reports De Telegraaf. The Muslim party says that the animals belong in nature, not inside the house. Küçük says that keeping dogs is animal abuse and should therefore be criminalized.

Needless to say, Hasan Küçük’s concerns have nothing whatsoever to do with animal abuse – and everything to do with the fact that Islam considers dogs to be impure. Like women, Jews, and gays, dogs are on the front line of the confrontation in the West between sharia-observant Muslims and the rest of us. When you see Muslims making trouble over dogs, you can bet that it’s just the beginning of all kinds of trouble over all kinds of things that run afoul of Islamic religious law

To be sure, Küçük’s suggestion – which came in response to a proposal by animal-rights advocates that The Hague be made more dog-friendly – was immediately shot down by other members of the city council. Küçük was undoubtedly not surprised. He knows these things don’t change in a day – they change over time, by a gradual process of wearing down. People like Küçük are exceedingly patient. And they trust in their own patience and intransigence – and in our weakness, our distraction, our readiness to give in, eventually, under steady pressure, on what may seem to us like small matters that are not worth fighting over.

Küçük’s proposal is nothing new. For years now, the Western media have featured, with some frequency, news stories about blind people with guide dogs being refused taxi rides by devout Muslims cabdrivers, being thrown off buses because of complaints by Muslim passengers, or being refused access to stores by devout Muslim shopkeepers. Daniel Pipes has been assiduous in cataloging such cases, some of them dating back to the 1990s, in places ranging from Milwaukee to Melbourne.

The Muslims in these cases invariably argue that their religion commands them not to be around dogs. But it’s not just about dogs but about pretty much every little detail of daily life. The same people who object fiercely to the presence of dogs in their shops or cabs also maintain that their religion commands them not to do, or touch, or say, or see, or be in the vicinity of a great variety of things that are commonplace in the Western world. And once they’ve gotten their way with regard to dogs, they’ll move on to another thing – and then another, and another – at which they take offense, and once again spell out exactly how they expect non-Muslims to change their behavior in order to keep the peace.

It’s the logic of conquerors. But many authorities in the West have bowed to it. In British Columbia, cab drivers whose “honest religious belief…precludes them from transporting certified guide dogs” have been exempted from having to do so. The Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport has alsoworked out a “compromise” between blind people and Muslim cabbies. In Britain, in response to Muslim complaints about “sniffer dogs” used to identify terrorists at airports, authorities limited the dogs’ activities out of “cultural sensitivity.” When sniffer dogs are taken into mosques or Muslim homes, moreover, they’re fitted with “leather bootees” to avoid giving offense.

Generally speaking, as the Muslim percentage of a city’s population climbs, the demands for appeasement grow more and more aggressive. Last year,reports Soeren Kern, Islamic groups in the Catalan city of Lérida – which is 20% Muslim – called for a ban on dogs on public transport and in certain public spaces on the grounds that their presence violates Muslims’ “religious freedom and their right to live according to Islamic principles.” The city’s refusal to introduce such a ban was succeeded by a series of dog poisonings. No surprise there: this is precisely the kind of development that one can expect after a certain point in this process, when demands and pressure haven’t turned the trick.

To treat Muslims’ complaints about dogs as if they deserve serious and respectful consideration is, of course, absurd. But over time, even the absurd becomes familiar. That’s one thing these people are counting on. They’re counting on their ability to wear the rest of us down gradually, accustoming us to ideas, beliefs, and “sensitivities” that, at first blush, strike us as ridiculous. They’re counting on our ultimate willingness to compromise our values, one by one, out of fear of conflict and a misguided ardor for social harmony. They’re counting on our readiness to tell ourselves that we’re not surrendering or being submissive but are simply being good, respectful, cooperative neighbors.

It’s precisely in this way that sharia law is being introduced, step by inexorable step, into the West. The only way to put a halt to it is to ensure that everyone in a position of power in the West is aware of exactly what the Hasan Küçüks among us are up to, and is willing to stand up to them every step of the way – knowing that it’s not about dogs, but about dogma; not about puppies, but about power.

Ya gotta wonder about people who worship a chunk of meteorite in the desert and wipe their butts with their bare hand calling dogs “unclean.” How would this turkey like it if I said he was unclean because of his ridiculous made-up religion. And besides my westie happens to be quite fastidious about such things and the only false idol he worships is the refrigerator (’cause that’s where the chicken necks are kept).

I’m on a blackberry and, by being patient, I had no trouble reading it.

I don’t know where this story took place, though it sounds like England.

What the story is basically commenting on this Muslim counselor who pushed a motion to ban dogs within the city limits, supposedly because dogs should be running free in the country.

The councilman knew it wouldn’t pass, but it was the first step in a journey to getting dogs banned.

Check my sig to know my opinion on this.

I will not allow anyone to tell me how to live. I will fight in the ways I know how, and I will, forever, love animals. If there is someone who wants to govern my love for animals, they will have to get through my shotgun, first.

Good for you, feeding your dog a species appropriate diet.

My little guy lives for his dinner of two chicken drummettes, and either some dried liver or tripe.

Anyone who truly loves their dog will not feed him/her grains in kibble.

wish we had an “edit” function, for if we did, I would insert “raw” in-between “two” and “chicken”.

Never feed a dog cooked chicken. The bones have to be raw to be easily crunched and absorbed by their amazing digestive juices. Raw bones are soft and flexible, cooked bones are hard and sharp.

That said, a dog regularly fed raw bones will have the digestive juices to process cooked bones, but these are never a good idea for dogs.

And, don’t get on my case about salmonella, etc. A dog’s digestive tract is short and straight, unlike ours. They have no problems if fed raw. But if fed contaminated kibble containing ingredients (clay, for example) to slow down transit time, then they can get sick.

Raw fed dogs are the healthiest dogs on the planet.

OK, I’m announcing that I am officially prejudiced against Islam. I hate it.

So, if I have to accept Islam as a condition for employment, citizenship, etc, etc, then I reject you and your conditions!

I will not beat around the bush. To Muslims: I hate your gutter religion. Don’t like it? Bring it. I’m ready.

To Liberals and moderates who just want to get along and sing kumbaya with the adherents of this gutter religion, I say, shut up and step aside. Shut up before you get us all killed or converted by the sword. Your appeasement will surely lead to it. Islam is incompatible with a liberal, Western way of life.

Kucuk is Turkish for little.

It’s appropriate because Hasan is a little tiny insecure twisted man. He is small in many ways, his fear of dogs is a sign of his mental illness. Hasan is insecure because deep down inside, he knows that the dogs are better creatures than his sick self.

The dogs know it also, which is why stray dogs in the middle east love Americans, and hate the local moon god worshippers.

If they ever tried that in the USA, they would get the fight they have been looking for for many years.

If anything will push Americans over the line, it is their love for their dogs. I would really enjoy seeing that tried here ...

The surprise, shock and fear Muslims will have at the swift, painful and terrifying response by Americans at any threat to their beloved dogs would probably do a lot to stop the Muslim dream of dictating to the western world and it will instantly be set back many years.

Bring it on!

amazing how sentient they are!

Dogs know people. If they didn’t they wouldn’t have survived, and they are experts at figuring out who the “trustworthy” are, and who do not deserve that label.

Always respect a dog, and be a worthy companion. Never let him/her down, and he/she will never let you down.

But, feed them a species appropriate diet. That means NO GRAINS.

When did you ever see a dog grazing in a wheat, rice, or corn field?
