I am a horse trainer and a story teller
I'd need to think on that for a while.
I remember that story, from about a year and a half ago. I'm actually just outside of Saskatoon. There was lots of chatter in the local dog community about whether or not the "breeder friend" was actually qualified to make that call or if she was biased by grief.
Poor dogs! What choice did they have? Did the guy leave the door open and a years supply of dog food out for them before he offed himself? I am guessing no.Don't know why anyone would blame the dogs.
After a string of thoughtful comments, I feel like a jerk for saying this....But that was honestly one of the funniest things I've read all day, and I really needed that laugh right now. Could you imagine adopting one of those dogs? "Sweetie, he's sniffing me again. Why is he sniffing me? I feel uncomfortable."
Becky - Thank goodness, I was afraid I was the only warped one out there.
OMG...thought I'd bust a gut reading the headline...I'll never hear "Lassie, Where's Timmy" w/o thinking of this post.Thanks for the morning giggle.
Morbid humour aside (lol!), the debate is stupid. Dogs eat dead things all the time. There is nothing special about dead humans. As long as you don't become cold, unresponsive, and smelling of carrion, the dog isn't going to eat you.
Anon - very good point.
What choice did the dogs have? They can't just open a tin or call for home delivery. I can't see a problem with rehoming them.
Okay - I just loved the headline...sorry, can't help it, it killed me.Of course I don't think it's funny that people died, or that the dogs lives were endangered because dogs, unlike people, understand that meat is meat. Once the person is dead, the remains are meat.Me and dogs, well, we think alike on that one. I have to admit I thought it was funny the dogs were Shelties.It would have mad me laugh more if they had been Maltese or Yorkies, but Shelties were pretty good.No, I don't think the dogs should be put down. I do think dogs that attack, kill and then eat their owners should be put down.In retrospect, I should have left the column off, because what I thought was funny, was the headline. Except then, you wouldn't know the owner-eating dogs were Shelties, which also cracked me up.There, I think I covered everything.If those people were your neighbors, your friends, or your relatives, then I am sorry for your loss.
redhorse - I think it's hysterical. I have thought about offering my services as a Chihuahua Trapper...maybe I could get my own reality show...
