i say mean things to my dogs. not in a mean voice, though. like sasha...i talk to her a lot (she is my sidekick). "What are you doing, stupid?" She doesn't know what stupid means literally, and i am using it as more of a trash talking term of endearment (like when my best friend calls and asks "What's up, fata**?", even though he outweighs me by 50 lbs).
If they want to control public perception, stop with the silly antics and approach the public honestly. Some of us work to find placement for rescues, or drive spay/neuters in our town (i am working to get a voucher program set up for free spay/neuter). Get more people informed and involved. That is how you make real change.
However, with the current times Mazlow may control the situation. People are less inclined to worry about animals when they are losing standard of living.
Prof Linzey also hopes to see phrases such as "sly as a fox", "eat like a pig" or "drunk as a skunk" stamped out.
