leaving a pot of gold on your front step...you're inviting trouble. or gold pot. either way, lolol...
and isn't interpreting pro active as tempting criminals and/or victim blaming kind of a stretch?
if your dog got struck by lightening, most people would say, "oh, no what a terrible accident"...not a comparison of equivalents.
sunflowers gets the sense of humor award!!! ohmygosh, that is too funny!!!
Read several of your posts on this thread along with others.
I agree with you 1000 percent.
A child could be abducted. But a responsible parent would not leave it circulating around by itself in a highly dangerous area. Full stop.
A puppy, esp. Well bred gsd can be a high value target.
Driving tests for example are teaching something called 'defensive driving'. This means that you don't just drive to the rules of the road and focus on yourself. It means you 'expect' somebody to bugger up, and are aware and not oblivious that it may happen. The theory is everydody drives defensively, there are less accidents. Just because it's 'your right of way' does not mean you should be aggressive in cutting somebody's entry. Allow for error with fellow drivers. Sure he pays and is responsible for damage, or goes to prison for being under influence. But the result is you both go into hospital and are both risking your lives.
So as katlitz said obviously the criminal is to blame. But being responsible goes a long way.
I wonder how many of you would leave a smartphone in the mall, and expect 100 percent to find it later. Maybe you will maybe you won't.
Not an issue with an adult gsd. Certainly an issue with a puppy.
Now are you negligent if you leave it outside. No. But it is something to weary of. And it's not ideal. That is for sure.
