    I was totally shocked when I first heard that USA and maybe some other western countries has prison sentence for killing or torturing dogs or cats. On google search engine I heard cases were the sentence is long like 8 years or 12 years prison. I think this totally stupid ! Why care that much about mindless animals ? Don't americans kill cockroaches and rats in their home, and don't they slaughter a pig for food and don't people hunt birds for fun. So, what is the big deal about dog ? Dogs might look a little cuter for some people, but they are just another mindless animals. If your dogs dies, you can just buy another dog. It just a mindless animals that doesn't have any kind of personality. Also, I saw many videos on youtube about rescue teams who job is to save dogs than need help. I just don't know why these goverments waste too much money on helping animals, when those money could be used for better things like helping poor people. I just can't understand why americans love dogs as if they are humans ?

  • Any issue with the dog sleeping on my daughter's bed?

    Is there any issue with a bulldog sleeping on my daughter’s bed? She’s 5 & loves having him on her bed. She gives him a pillow( which he uses) and a blanket, reads to him( even though he’s rolled over trying to sleep). He sleeps through the night on the bed though, and she does also.

It's pretty cute to see her wake up, excited to see him. She'll pet him, rub his stomach, tickle him. Any issue I'm missing?

  • Is it safe to let my cat sleep in bed with me?

    I have germaphobic tendencies, but only sometimes. I got a cat recently and she's super affectionate. I love letting her sleep in bed with me since she's so cuddly.

But when I start to think about her standing in her litter box and then hopping on my bed and walking around it, even inevitably on my pillows, I get really grossed out. But I feel like everyone lets their cats sleep in their beds with them. Is it disgusting or are cats clean enough to let them sleep in bed with you?

  • Can you run a dog to death?

    The other day, we were out on the farm, and riding a dirt bike around the pasture.

    The other day, we were out on the farm, and riding a dirt bike around the pasture. We suddenly had the idea to encourage our German Shepherd to run along to try and get him some good exercise, and he proceeded to race along beside/behind us at full speed for nearly 3 miles (still in the pasture, not the road, and not on a leash). After that, we quit, worried that he was going to get hurt running that fast for so long (we also slowed down a couple times while we were still doing circles to to make sure he didn't want to stop), and took him down to his water dish. He was panting like mad and had slobber/foam all over his face, but after a drink of water he immediately jumped in to playing basketball with the family, so I don't think he really used up all of his energy. Will a dog run themselves to death if they are enjoying it though, or will they slow down and stop if they have had enough? He seemed to be having a blast running after the dirt bike on the grass, so I'd like to do it again (and maybe go further so he is properly tired), but I want to be sure I'm not going to have him keel over or hurt himself. How far can a dog run full speed? And will they stop themselves when they've had enough?

  • Can this family be charged with animal cruelty or neglect?

    My neighbors had this cute little dog that they NEVER kept on a leash. Animal control was called numerous times, so many they had to pay a fine many times to get the dog back.

    My neighbors had this cute little dog that they NEVER kept on a leash. Animal control was called numerous times, so many they had to pay a fine many times to get the dog back. People would personally bring the dog home, myself included and they got letters from our HOA regarding the dog being loose. They ran over him as a result of them not keeping him secured and he lost one of his legs during that incident. They still continued to be neglectful and allow the dog to be loose all day and run all over the neighborhood. I just found out that the dog was hit and killed earlier this week and I am extremely sad. I did every to get them to keep their dog safe...is there anything that can be done now that their lack of responsibility has caused the dog to lose it's life?

    I've recently been thinking about what i'm going to do with my kitten. He's 3 months now and will be having the second course of vaccinations next week. What i dont understand is why so many people not only dont let their cats out, but they are completely against it! Before I moved out of my parents house we lived on a farm and had 3 cats, who loved being outside and hunting. In fact when we kept Kit-Cat in for a week when he had health problems he was clearly depressed and wanted out! Obviously there are dangers, but it cant possibly be benificial to keep an animal indoors ALL the time. Otherwise why wouldnt you get a hamster instead?! Maybe I'm wrong, but will someone please explain this to me?!

    Hey! Thanks for reading my question! Okay, so my uncle gave us his dog because the dog had bitten a UPS guy and could no longer live with my uncle. Seeing as how I live in a different state from my uncle- we were the only people who even considered taking him. We took him in, but now he is home alone from about 7-8 AM to 6PM. We come home to our garbage, or whatever we left on the table, torn to shreds. He is a three year old Black Lab. We have had him for about four months. I really love him, but this needs to stop. I am sick of coming home and seeing random crap torn all over the floor. He did not do this at my uncles. Why is he doing this? How can it be stopped? We do NOT want to get a dog crate/kennel because we do not want him locked up for that long. What can we do?

  • Am I in the wrong here, just give your honest opinion?

    Best answer: No, you are definitely not in the wrong. People who's dogs are not under their control, need to keep them leashed. Plenty of dogs do NOT tolerate rude dogs running up to them.

  • How to get my puppy to gain weight?

    I have a 5 month old puppy - Old Tyme Bulldog, we feed her dry food every day 2/3 times a day. She eats it all and she still looks really skinny! Her breed is meant to be stocky, but she just won't put on weight. Any suggestions for weight gain for her?

I called the cline tof ours that found the dog and gave her the number, she seemed hesitant because she told me she had decided to adopt the dog but she would give the number a call. shortly after she called back and told us that she called and turns out it was not their dog. however, the rightful owner of this dog just called our clinic asking if we had heard anything and the owner told us she has not heard any leads or received any calls about her dog..leading us to believer our client who found him will not cooperate in giving these people their dog back
