Ron Artest is incredibly irresponsible. He makes millions of dollars and he can't properly take care of his dogs! When I travel for work or we are gone on a family vacation, we pay a great company, Keep Waggin,$13 a visit to take care of our dogs. They are fed and walked three times a day. I am so glad the Pacers got rid of him. With Jackson gone, there is ony Tinsley left and all of the Pacers "dogz" will have been shipped out.

After all the things that have happened with Artest I still have a soft spot in my heart for him. He was my favorite Pacer for the longest time. Although I wouldn't want him back here. I keep hoping that he will grow up. He seems to be his own worst enemy. It makes me sad to see how he hurts himself more than anyone.

My wife's favorite player was Ron Artest. That was 'her boy'. She first noticed him in the NCAA tournament, and really liked him. I came in from work one afternoon when the tourney was on and she had all sorts of comments about him. You can imagine how happy she was when the PACERS traded for him. She's gone now and I'm just happy she didn't have to see him now-a-days. It would have ... devastated her.

He should be banned from ever owning another pet. There is no excuse for that. I make a tiny fraction in a year of what he makes in a month, yet when I travel (which is fairly extensively), I always have my dogs in a good quality boarding kennel with outside play time, 24 hour care, etc., because regardless of cost, that is the responsibility I assumed when I adopted them. He can certainly afford to not leave his dogs to fend for themselves while he travels.

I'll bet he's not missing any meals...What a worthless human being. People like him shouldn't be allowed to have any animals, because they themselves are nothing but animals. And, what a surprise, a pit bull and great dane. He's probably setting up his retirement by starting the first "strip bar/dog fighting club" in the NW. I guess he litterally does like his bitches.
