Banning Dogs as Pets

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:

Keep a pig as a pet. Pigs are quite intelligent and trainable, although not very hugable, and will keep your premises free of devotees of Allah.

amazing how sentient they are!

I have been a dog owner my whole life and I have 3 of 'em now. My youngest is an accidental mix of a Doberman and a Belgian Malinois. Simply an amazing dog. Just unbelievably smart and tons of personality. She knows the whole family like a book. She even amazes an old dog lover/owner like me.

Bowser has the best temperament I’ve seen in a jack russell. He’s the world’s happiest dog. Even my vet said she would like to see more of that bred into the breed.

yep, dogs know which grasses are good for them. I have “been owned” by several different breeds, and I noticed that most of them all loved “grass hamburgers”

You know, the clumps left over after mowing? And they seemed to prefer the ones several day old, probably beginning to ferment. Must have been some tasty nutrients in them, just as in rabbit poop, etc.

Nothing that modern dog food companies understand, when they cook it all to oblivion. But, why should we worry, for we are now steadily heading that way, what with “ensure” and all.

The dogs that I have loved the most in my long years were my two Belgian Malinois.

So smart, so quick to pick up on training, so loyal, so snuggly. I still dream about my beloved Hanna and Shadow.

Now I am in a “senior living high-rise”, and must do with a cute little Havanese, but I still miss Hannah and Shadow, and dream about them at least once a week. It breaks my heart that we couldn’t go together.

I always fed my dogs eagle pack, and even my black lab was lean and mean. Their coats were nice and they had energy to burn. I think that was a good food.

I wouldn’t argue the raw stuff though either.

It’s been a year since someone stole my two beautiful dogs. Wife had left and they were my only company I had on my acreage, then I got home one night, and they were gone.

Dogs are descended from wolves.

In the wild wolves very frequently dine on vegetable matter - mostly from the gut content of the herbivores they kill.

I grew up on a farm with a Great Dane. He ate dog food as only a small part of his diet which included..... deer carcases with the guts and vegetable matter (he could chew through an entire skeleton in less than a week), fruits including apples, “road apples” i.e. horse dung, grasses and shrubberies, and various critters both large and small. He ate EVERYTHING. He put the OMNI in omnivore.

He was of course a carnivore - but almost all carnivores in the wild dine on the gut content of their prey.

I’m sure there are more clever folks here when it comes to that, but here’s what I do:

Option 1: As soon as you see the text, take a screen shot (key to the right of F12, “PrintScrn/SysRq.”) Then go to your graphics prog and paste it to a blank file.

Option 2: because option #1 only copies what’s on your screen, not what you could scroll down to read, you can try instead to hit the X stop in your browser which will stop the page from loading, as soon as you can see text. That should stop ads and redirecting to other places. If not and if you can do it in time, do a select-all and copy the text, then paste it to a blank doc.

Option 3: Most likely, anything on frontpage is not vital to read so you can ignore it, but if you really really want to see it, adjust your browser so that images and redirects can’t happen — fiddle around in your Tools and settings until you find the options. This is really the most fun option because you never know what you’ll learn while poking about in the settings. :) Just remember what you did so you can undo it later.

Option 4: see if your browser or the page itself has a print version, they’re simpler.

I have a belgian malinois in my house, quite often she is in bed between us. Someone said years ago, don’t know who the quote was, but something like “never trust a man who doesn’t like dogs”. I guess not trusting a muslim would fit in this category then.

Maybe I need to start working her on a decoy in muslim gear

These are days in which it is good to be old.

A big amen to that. I often say that to myself after reading the political news, thinking that, well, at least I won't be around when all this hits the fan. And having no children, I sleep well at night, knowing that I'm not part of the generation that bequeaths them with this mess.

Of course, I still am concerned about other people's children and I do my best to fight the forces that threaten to engulf the best political system that man has ever enjoyed.

Wild dogs, wolves, coyotes etc.. eat greens, grass, grains, etc....all the time.

And I've seen my dogs do the same....Watched my dogs eat wild black berries..and they apparently loved them.

I'm with you...as to not feeding my dogs only dried food...that is mostly grain. I feed them a well rounded diet. And all my dogs over the years have been healthy and happy.

Do you drink milk?

I do think you have over-reacted to my comment, without thinking it through.

There are many kibbles/manufactured foods on the market that do not contain grains. Dogs do not have the ability to digest grains.

Read up a bit on the subject. Tom Lonsdale has a good website explaining the deleterious long term effect on canine health of cheap commercial kibble.

Perhaps if I should have said that if anyone wants to have a healthy dog with minimal or nonexistent vet bills should not feed him/her grains in kibble. Is that better?

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

When they take down the squirrel that just ate the corn from the field and consume the stomach.

If you feed a dog (any carnivore) exclusively flesh they will not be healthy. We don’t feed our animals whole kill. In the wild, they would get it in their diet by eating the digestive tracks.

We should call for a ban on Muslims on public transport and in certain public spaces on the grounds that their presence violates a dogs right to live in accordance with their desire to be man’s best friend.
When a dog befriends you there is no ambiguity, he will be your friend for life, sacrificing his life to protect you.
When a Muslim says he wants to be your friend put your back firmly against a solid wall and keep your dominant hand on a weapon and the other hand on your wallet.

I agree with you, at least in part.

But, let’s think about it a bit. What percentage of the overall body weight of the squirrel is the corn in the stomach?

Isn’t the corn “unprocessed”, and isn’t it also mixed with the digestive enzymes in the quarrel’s stomach?

Compare that to the crummy denatured overly processed poor quality corn mixed in with dog food, and maybe you will understand my position.

I agree that “exclusively flesh is not a healthy diet. Dogs need organ meats, raw bone with the marrow for all the enzymes, and small amounts of ripe fruits which they might find in nature.

Some folks actually do feed whole kill. I don’t, but try to get an approximation by including the above in his meals.

My reward is clean teeth, sweet breath, no body odor, healthy coats, no itching, far fewer fleas or ticks, if any at all.

Best reward to me is that the poops are quite firm, much less stinky, and crumble away to a white powder after a few days in the sun. Oh, and I don’t have to express their anal glands, because the firmer stool takes care of that.

But, to each his own. I offer my opinion only for consideration of the benefits.

“Can’t be around dogs, chess, kites, or music - normal things of life, cuz they aren’t normal...”

Those are only a few. They seem to disapprove of most of our western culture. I see their problem as having no love, acceptance, tolerance for others. Just total control over every aspect of a person’s life. That is why I feel strongly that Islam is not a religion, but a cult.

No, I did not over react to your comment. You said it in an eliest very judgmental way. Perhaps you didn’t mean to come acrorss that way but you did.

I know all I want and need to know about the nutrition/diet debates. I’ve debated and read for over 10 years on the subject with my labrador friends ( literally thousands of them ).

You said .....( direct quote )”tPerhaps if I should have said that if anyone wants to have a healthy dog with minimal or nonexistent vet bills should not feed him/her grains in kibble. Is that better ?” ( end quote )

No, it’s not judgmental or elitist but it’s not better.

Why isn’t it any better ? Because I can blow that theory outta the water over 500 times.
I can blow it outta the water 2 times right now with my own 2 labradors.

One will be 11 years old in April. The only thing she’s had surgery for was a spay. She’s healthy and fit.
My 7 year old has only had a spay surgery and an emergency C section because of a stuck puppy ( we lost him btw ). Both are retired from showing and motherhood. Both have OFA certifications on their hips and elbows. The old dog has her OFA heart clearance/certification from a veterinary cardiologist via echo .

They’ve both been fed a kibble diet with grains their whole life GASP GASP and my yearly vet bill, under 200 bucks for BOTH dogs.
Yes, that is minimal for heartworm med, office call, vaccinations, annual exam.

Now recenly I did take my 7 year old to have her mouth looked at . I thought she had something wrong with her bottom gums but she was A OKAY.... my bill......30 bucks.
Twenty was for the office call and 10 was for the exam.

Unless they need a check up for something I’m not sure about, we go and that’s only happened once or twice in the last 5 years.

Where do enviroment and genetics take play in a “healthy dog “ ? They have to account for something.

Diet alone is not the sole factor on a dogs health.

Enjoy your furry pal. I enjoy mine. They are treasured and very loved family members .

Good night FRiend ~

Blessings to you and yours.
