Wa. State has the same law.The weather on the westside of the state is mild year around. Here a 3 sided ,roofed shelter is ok. The law wasn't because people like you, who provide for your horses, it was because of people who would leave them out year around wihout even a tree for shade or protection. Yes, its $$$$!! But, nothing about our horses comes cheap, LOL. We where able to provide shelter for our horses for less money than balankets would of cost. But, I bet your horses stay warmer. Some laws seem so ridiculous, but, because somewhere enough people did dumd ass (or violent, or whatever) things that required others with more brains to pass such laws. Good luck with your ponies and enjoy. (Mar 25, 2011 | post #138)
If you ever owned a pit you would know why they are popular pets. (Mar 24, 2011 | post #136)
The misery, pain and callousness inflicted by humans is more than can be understood by most people. It's accepted that many people do not like animals or dogs or pit bulls in particular. However, the heartless manner in which a dying animal is tossed away like garbage is not only reprehensible but the increase that we have seen indicates a downward spiral of compassion, moral fiber and ethics.

Wow, we do think alot alike. If I may, just add one more thing. Lassie was more than one well trained dog there where a couple of well trained dogs that made the one Lassie and I think they where also all males. LMAO Now, ain't that a "Bitch"? pardon the pun. (Mar 2, 2011 | post #123)

Save a cat and don't get one. I'M NOT BEING A SMART ASS OR TRYING TO PISS YOU OFF. I really am say do not get a cat your asking for problems on top of ones that you should be addressing. Your red nose needs work. I have 4 very large outdoor yards, each yard is connected to 3 or 4 indoor kennels. This is to house my Pits (4) in one yard, Wolf /Husky (3) in the second yard and (3) "problem " mix breeds. The last yard is for current clients use. I do not have "problem " with any of my dogs. This is my life and with the help of my family we work with the dogs that have been thrown away because they where "problem dogs". I do not want to sound harsh, and please I'm not here to hurt your feeling but you need to learn how to take control of your dog. If you can' find someone who can and try another breed for a pet. Your going to have problems if you don't. Its a fire waiting for gas. I love pits and would hate to see another story about a pitbull that injury to another animal or person. Yours will be that pit if you don't find help soon. Work on your dog and forget he cat. The fact that you are even thinking about a cat just blows my mind. The only thing I can think of that makes any since is that you are posing Bullshit and don't even have a dog. But if you aren't and are "for real" God help us, I hate to say it, but it is people who think like you who are the problem not the breed. (Mar 2, 2011 | post #49)
Like the little old lady from Wendys 1980's promo "Where's the Elk?" lol Very pretty pic. (Mar 1, 2011 | post #1)
well ok had to ask lol. I am a country girl and the area where I live is a "outdoor sportsmans" DisneyLand. I have raised animals for food and it really is better to eat beef from a health steer. The animals where very well cared for until "D" day but the reason they where bred and born was to become dinner someday. Trapping is a personal dislike. I had one snap on me as a child, I found it to be very painful. I feel bad for the "pets" that where caught in yours but (this maybe a shocker)if the pets wheren't running free and unsupervised they would never had been trapped. Alot could be said re: ownership.

I understand the message, just disagree with the method. I was a owner/admin. of a private group home for “developmentally disabled adults” for 14 years. So, it was a “knee jerk” reaction. A short FYI (if your interested.) “they” do not like to be labeled with any descriptive names. P.C or not. (Mar 1, 2011 | post #462)

This maybe the closest I ever come to seeing eye to eye with Jack. I have people in my life who are "special need". They are very near and dear "friends " of mine. I don't like the word "retarded " nor do I think calling someone a "POS" is much better. sorry couldn't just let that one go by without commenting. (Mar 1, 2011 | post #459)
What is abuse? IMO Much of what is described as abuse of a children,the elderly and disabled should applied towards animals. When in the care of a human, the very least a animal should have is: fresh water, well balanced diet, proper health care, clean, dry, warm or cool sanitary living environment with room enough for freedom of movement. My pets get a hell of a lot more but I do not expect everyone to do as I do. I eat meat and love it. I have 30 plus years working with dogs as well. Until the mid 1990's I used pinch collars and choke chains also. I even tried a shock collar once on a hyper bitch with a barking problem. I no longer use them, but I don't have a problem with anyone who still does. As long as they are used as they where meant to be used, tools in training. Every dog I work with is trained Schutzhund. Some people think that the Schutzhund dogs are abused, vicious, train killers, when in fact the Schutzhund dog must be very well trained, obedient, mentally stable and health. I have never abused my dogs or seen a dog abused at any trials. Sadly, I am sure it has and if I saw it I would report it. I do not hunt. I feel that trapping and bow hunting is cruel and does cause the animal to suffer. However, if it is done legally,then I have no right to judge. I do have the right to protest and advocate for a change in the laws and I do. I'm not a PETA “nut” as some have assumed. In fact, I disagree with most of what PETA stands for and find it to be a hypocritical organization. I do no assume every child who abuses a animal will be a criminal. What I do believe is it is a indicator of some other problems and must be addressed in he best intrust of the child. If the abuser is a adult who has the cognitive ability of a adult, and knowledge of the law and chooses to break it should be held accountable. IMO Anyone with a proven history of abusive behavior should face felony charges, because this person is a to repeat offender who lack any regard for society or its laws. Personally, I would also assume (hang my head in shame) they are already braking more laws than just animal abuse and are a threat and cost to society. BTW I DO eat meat and love it. I have a “road kill” if ya wanna swap recipes Squirrel Eater. lmao (Mar 1, 2011 | post #115)
Two centuries ago Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Women was travestied on the grounds that if rights were granted to women, farmyard animals would be next in line. Was this in your past life Jack? (Mar 1, 2011 | post #98)
“I however do not see any damage to society that those who inflict pain on animals do.” IMO …..Your pursuit of admiration and a inflated self image have made you blind to the obvious. There is absolute evidence of a connection between animal cruelty and the violent damage done to human society Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the last 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized the connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children. Other research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common forms of family and community violence that are interrelated, including child abuse, domestic violence, elder abuse and teen violence. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association considers animal cruelty one of the diagnostic criteria of conduct disorder. Intentional cruelty a sign of psychological distress and often indicates that an individual either has already experienced abuse or violence or may be predisposed to committing acts of abuse or violence. Intentional cruelty can be an indicator that an individual is developing a pattern of seeking power and control by inflicting suffering on others. Many workshops are designed to train professionals such as educators, humane investigators, veterinarians, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, domestic violence , child welfare advocates, adult protective service professionals, and other anti-violence advocates to recognize the connection between animal cruelty and human violence, and to intervene effectively before violence occurs. The “conclusions reached” by the FBI's “generalized” analysis of “those people” has only held is recognition for forty years. The American Psychiatric Association, and other sociology, and criminology professionals must also “lack a basic understanding of science and quasi experimental research and the limitations of it..” In your world of 'Jack knows it all and knows it best'.
