<quoted text>No, you are right-I am sure that they are happy straining and jumping with a chain around their neck, barking at everyone who walks by. They look happy to me. They even look happy when they have deep cuts from the chain rubbing their skin. There was a rottweiler living close to me who was chained in the front yard-she had about three feet to run around on and be happy-the blood around her neck made her happy too. Then there was another dog down the street who was chained to a tree-he was so happy that he ran in circles all day and wound up almost choking himself. Yes-these dogs certainly were happy. They had no pretty
little sweaters either.
Linda, there are enough laws on the books in Texas under section 821.077 Tex. Health & Safety Code Sec. to cover every situation you have complained about. Are you one of those civil rights nuts that wants it to be legal for homosexual marriages and OK to marry your dog?

Dogs are not humans, they don't like what humans like. I have been training search and rescue dogs for over 50 years. We have an 8' by 10' elevated dog house with windows in it and a swinging door with a cedar shaving lined floor. This morning it was foggy and the ground was covered with dew.2 of the males were sleeping on the ground covered with wet dew. When they say me they wagged their tales and were happy. When we are out on a search mission we have them on a leash. When they lay down to rest while on the leash they lay with tension on that leash. I don't know why but they like it. It makes them feel wanted and loved.
A dog on a 20 foot chain is more free than a dog in a 6 x 12 foot legal size kennel.
thank you Chuck Rosa....

If you cut their legs off, they won't run off or chase people.

The issue is the chain remember? No food - no water - no shelter = wrong for the owner. Taking him away from that owner that he loves is wrong for the LP city council. Yes he is happy on that chain. Why make him unhappy?
People have commented that LP city council has gone to the dogs. Now we know it's true!

The ordinance will be referring to dogs that are chained/tethered 24/7.

Zemanek finally has proposed something good for this community. That is the good news.

The bad news is that he is micro-managing how we live. His controlling nature is now bringing government into our front and back yards.

This is one of those times when i improperly spoke and didnt come back to the next day to realize it.

Some dogs prefer to be outside. Tied up or not, they arent house dogs. I see time and time again where people think all dogs want to be inside the house, wearing a sweater etc. The animals are miserable.

I see nothing wrong with having a dog tied up outside. If they have a proper collar, there shouldnt be blood gushing from there neck.

My dog however, is 1/2 inside and 1/2 outside. During the day she will not come in. But as soon as the sun starts going down she is scratching at the door.

We have figured out Linda who appears to be. There are only 2 people on this site that support the council on this issue. Linda is one but in fact has the yappiest, barkingest dog on San Jacinto street.According to the animal control officer, it is perfectly legal and expected for dogs to bark when on guard at home and howl when sirens are passing by. Linda needs to keep her yapping dog and rowdy kids under control in the evenings too.

Slaves were property, and women were once thought of as property too... and uncaring "owners" had the same attitude as you.

They chained them up, beat them, abused them and bred them at will.

NO MORE CHAINED DOGS IN LA PORTE!

There is a difference between a human and an animal. This is nothing but an infringement on your rights. Maybe next they will tell you what you can and cannot feed them. No more table scraps sorry fido.

I am sure that slave owners thought the abolition of slavery was an infringement on THEIR rights too.

YOU... do not have the RIGHT to inflict suffering on ANY living thing!!!!

Putting a dog on a chain is not inflicting any more suffering than you or your friends wearing a necklace. The dogs love it.

Folk's, why is it that most everyone who picks to argue with me... does not know the difference between YOUR and YOU'RE?

I have no issues with people eating meat... as long as the animal is not abused and is humanely dispatched and EVERYTHING is used for one purpose or another.

I DO have issues with ANYONE who abuses an animal for ANY reason.

There is no reason to inflict pain and suffering on another living thing... at all.

No caring, rational, thinking human being would stand on YOUR side of this argument, so by my logic, sir/ma'am... that means YOU'RE a moron.

Get it, "YOU'RE a moron."?

LOL

I did not think you would.
