I currently keep several pets. I have kept many varieties of animals from roaches to fish to amphibians to reptiles to birds to small mammals to cats and dogs. Some were pets, others were feeder animals for other animals in my collection (yes, the roaches for animals like lizards), others were food animals for people (as in for me – no not the roaches). While I like keeping and breeding animals, also like eating them. I fish and hunt when I can. I buy ad eat meat regularly. I am not an animal rights advocate and rarely do I write about pet owners whom I believe are absolute assholes. I thin groups like PETA are full of jerks and assholes.
Today though, I saw what I believe to be proof that some people simply should not be allowed to keep a pet. Watch the video and I think you will see what I mean. Make sure to read the note about why vets believe this dog became grossly overweight. I would not have thought anyone quite that fucking stupid as the vets or the owners - I mean did the vets actually have to explain that the dog was overfed for anyone but the owners to have realized that gross overfeeding would lead to gross obesity!
Listen to the woman in the video when she tells the dog that was a lot of work. I get the gut feeling (no pun intended) that she thinks she did the work instead of the dog having done it. I now think it is obvious that at least this particular dog’s owner(s) was/were stupider than stupid could have been imagined and that maybe they should be held liable for the terrible care that must have been given to this dog to allow it to get that damned fat and they should never again be allowed to own and care for an animal.
I do not know if the woman heard in the video is the owner. I am guessing she is though. When you watch the video, there is an additional clue about the suitability of that woman heard, or anyone like her, as a pet owner. She sounds repulsed when she asks the dog are you gonna pee again. Listen to how her voice changes in tone. If it was up to me, the dog would be seized from the owner(s) who allowed it to get that fat and they would be permanently banned from ever again being allowed to have an animal under their care. Add to that making her eat about 100 Twinkies a day for three months and the punishment might fit the transgression. Imagine a dachshund needing to lose 40 pounds. Unfriggin believable.
All the best,
