In light of some regularly controversial threads and the back and forth, I came to the conclusion that all this is about people, not dogs.
Dogs are our excuse for expressing our beliefs and opinions.
Something Sit Stay said in another thread prompted this.
So other than being abused...........
Things dogs don't care about.
Who their breeder is. Whether their breeder is "reputable" or not. If they are fed Raw or kibble. Whether their owner is homeless or wealthy. If they wake up tomorrow or not. If they are a working K9 or a pet. If they live in an Apt, house, barn or outside.
Whether they sleep in their owners bed or not. The weather. If they are intact or not. If their owner has enough money in the bank to cover expensive medical costs.
How much exercise they get. Whether they have a collar or not and what type it is. What type of training they receive. Socialization. If they are working line or showline.
If their parents had pedigrees or not. Who their parents are. What race, religion or nationality their owners are. What color they are. Whether they are immunized or not. What we say here.
Just a few things dogs don't care about but dog people do and we will argue to prove we know what is best.
We could learn a lot about living from our dogs.
Feel free to add or argue about it. The dogs won't care.
