Dogs and cats were not domesticated into being companions of mankind... they hung around because they were able to scavenge food in contact with humans.

This was allowed by people because dogs were found to be useful in hunts and ridding communities of the resulting offal and cats kept the vermin out of the storage areas.

Initially, they were not pets at all. Instead, we appreciated their beneficial behaviours. Just because we no longer need dogs for hunting as much is no reason to stop the co-habitation. And cats, well... I recall the last time cats were hated, we suffered the Black Plague.

Great post.

In which forum should this content be posted in your opinion?

I know my choice....


Peace

I agree that it would be a nice addition to ATS. I said that before in the old thread (a change in my original stance is in that thread) that it's a good idea and something I support. And I agree that there should be a voice pushing for it.

However, I disagree with the passive-aggressive, demanding (this is a free website, after all), and entitled tone of that voice.

Try and enjoy the New Year.

It would fit perfectly into the desired Pet Forum should it ever come to be.

It's known by more than a few members that I've long been a proponent. In the end, it's up to the owners and administrators and they are aware of the continuing requests over the past few years.

Hayyy Jude!

OK. I have the 3 dogs.
2 rescues
1 pure breed with papers.

Mylo..( My Little One abbreviated ) he's an amalgaMUTT of love.. he's part Pitt bull, Boston terrier and part god bless him.

Then Kipper.. a white Sheppard. Not smart. But also full of love and ENERGY!!!!

Then Murphy .. UM! He's a Weimaraner ... he one years old as of the 28th of December. All legs and ears. Playful..
Knows how to open the doors and all the drawers. Came home to him eating peanut
butter .. he opened it. Smart and crafty...OH! Did I mention he's 109 lbs!!!

Well there you have it.. I live alone on 2.5 acres of land..
Three dogs.. I'm the opposite of CAT LADY.

Good luck...

We have three dogs. Plus 120 chinchillas. We found a home for the one foster dog. And we downsized the business a bit and are light from the holiday sales.

Edit to add: When compared to the numbers I mentioned in the old thread or in one of the other [PETS] threads.

Thanks.

Well, if I can't have a forum I can most certainly have a thread...right?

Agreed.

I get passionate about this topic and can sometimes come across as pushy.

Thanks for the support.

Peace

In my township. The ordinance is 2 dogs only.
I got the Weimaraner and training him as a service dog. So the 3'd is permitted.
Had 2 other Weimaraners . And they were great.

I think it makes sense to have a Animal/Pet forum. Just not in the conspiracy section please.


I agree completely.

Unfortunately since TPTB of ATS moved this OP to a NON VISIBLE FORUM...I lose again so once again it's a NON ISSUE to ATS.

Actually...Many members lose.

Peace


I don't think anyone loses. You make it sound like a conspiracy against you. That it is not!!

It just not a worthy topic. Subscribe to "pet weekly" or "Im alone, so i bought a pet" both great reads with nice contribution sections within.

Yeah, yet you yourself have nothing better to do than troll this thread. Why is that? I do t see why you give a damn if there is a pet forum. Honestly its 2015 and we still have a forum titled "2012" how does that make more sense than opening a new pet forum? It doesn't.

It "IS" a worthy topic to many of the members here.

It would be a very popular forum IMO.

Who knows, maybe the forum would even attract advertisers for pets.

Maybe we won't get a forum but a 2015 thread will suffice for now.
