I have a coon hound border collie cross, her breeds were hearders and hunters, very smart, very sweet very clean dogs. Coon hounds are famous for
their strength, intelligence, tree climbing ability, and their ability to find a scent trail in the air where as bloodhounds follow the ground. If
their target climbs a tree they will go right up after them. Used to hunt anything from racoons, to Lions and Bears, it's an amazing intelligent
loyal companion. Far better than a cat, to date she has eaten 3 cats, easily a dozen possums, one skunk, 3 racoons, and 4 of it's kittens, as well as
chased a black bear and cubs up trees I had to call her away from that one that's a big mess, and I'd rather not pay to have her injuries fixed. I
don't doubt she could have held her own, and that she was merely trying to protect myself and the misses, but I don't need a wounded or dead dog and
an angry 6ft blackie trying to kill me afterwords.
Anyways, I can't understand the Muslims, dogs dirty? Dogs, dirtier than a man!!! That's preposterous! A human bite will fester and rot almost every
time! This isn't the case with dogs, how ever I suppose that depends on the dog and it's health. Dog's are clean animals, cat's lick their own #
out of their fur and god does their urine stink. I find dog urine almost has a salty smell where as cat piss smells like pure ammonia! I'm turning
this into a big debate, I find cat's need far less work than dogs. Change litter which is disgusting, feed and water and your set. The cat will find
you when it wants attention but most cats are more self entertained. Dogs, need to be fed and watered, you need to scoop the poop and throw it in the
compost, or if the grass is long enough and you have a good mower, just mow the lawn ha ha. Walk them, play with them, love them and let them love
you. It's not so much like that with cats. Dogs get depressed if they don't get worked, or played with they need to feel important in the family.
With a cat, you're almost more or less his servant. You clean up after him and serve him and if he's happy with you he will reward you, if not he
will crap in your shoes. My Fiance has two cats, I take care of them, they like me, when I don't feed them the right food they punish me or my dogs.
it's a one sided see saw and they are happily on the top.
I feel every man and animal on this planet deserves to live together on the same scale. We are all animals, they are no greater or lesser than us. If
you follow any religion god created all of this, and it's all his not ours, so treat the great creator with respect, and play nice with his things
maybe he will do the same with you and yours. It's rather obvious, religion has far too much human influence, or how do the holier than thou's put
it? Oh yes, different interpretations/translations. Every Muslim/easterner I've come across who " Doesn't like" dogs, reacts more with fear than
disgust. I've actually been walking my dog, and an east indian looking fellow was walking on the same side of the road towards me, when he saw me and
the dog both happily trotting along, her at my heel panting wagging her tail me with a smile. He ran across the street and went through a gate and
closed it and waited for us to pass before he emerged and speedily continued on his way!!! Like wtf? Not the first overreaction I've seen either,
which if you understand anything about dogs, running or acting like you're scared or doing something wrong only triggers a dogs instincts and will
entice bad dogs to do bad things! Even Good dogs, react poorly to strange people acting out of place or out of what they are used to.
