Sorry, no, the domestic dog is now dependent on man.........they are not wild wolves.
And with my dog, she is treated exactly like I would like to be treated if our roles were reversed.
It's called respect, it's called love.
We had a farm dog, Sugar and my A%$$ h*&%$ brother in law left her out in a "dog pen with dog house" in 30 below weather - her blanket froze, she had
12 puppies and dug a hole under her dog house.
I was 10, I was scared to stand up to my brother in law who I had to live with - and who beat me if I so much as looked at him the wrong way.
Sugar and her puppies were okay that long cold Missouri winter, but I begged him to just let them in the bathroom for a few nights until the weather
warmed up. He wouldn't. I should have stuck up for Sugar, I should have stood up to the cruel, mean tyrant but didn't have the courage.
I would go out to feed her and watch her shiver and shake............her puppies crying.
Well now, I'm older and bigger and now I will stand up to anyone that abuses a dog, a child or someone weaker.
Well buddy, you insensitive person you, that was 48 years ago.
Now, my Lucy, she stays right by my side. She is treated like a member of our family. No dog pen, dog house, frozen blankets for her.
No, and by the way - dogs are smarter than you think............June 9th at approximately 10 AM C/T Lucy backed up to me keyboarding, which she does
to get scratched on her back...........and in her gruffy little voice said, "outttttt"..................she talked. She didn't want to get scratched,
she told me she had to pee.
Soooooooooooooo as man is evolving maybe so are our companion animals too.
And yes, my Lucy came from a puppy mill and was treated like a thing, a commodity for six years and than scheduled to be gassed when she was deemed
"not useful or young enough".
Wanna know how to judge a person, watch how they treat their companion animal.
I'm so glad I married my husband, he is so nice to all of our dogs and cats we have had.
He's a real man, was also a excellent father..............a real man is kind, merciful and gentle.
