I inherited 3 plants from my apartment's previous owners. I'm afraid they are currently dying a slow, painful death.

My last cat would bring me a dead chipmunk probably about every other day until just before he died. I would pat him on the head and say "good kitty" since he thought he was doing me a solid, which he was, they are like rats around here. But yeah, I don't think cats are really satisfied until everything is dead for miles around.
I also had crayfish when I had fish growing up and they ate all the fish eventually even though they were twice the size of the crayfish. I didn't ever name my fish or the crayfish for that matter, just never occurred to me.
I've got a dog now and she's awesome. She's a pit bull/shar-pei(wrinkle dogs) mix and she's basically a fighting machine. My neighbors have 3 of those cattle dogs, 2 males and one female and they pack-attacked her one day but she kicked all their asses soundly. They literally ran away with their tales between their legs. She's really pretty sweet day to day but when she gets in a fight something switches "on" and it's a little unnerving to watch lol. I'll post a pic of her once I get around to it.

Urgh. Anyone who is proud of their dog being a fighting machine is, er, not someone I think should own a dog...

Is a crayfish like a crawdad? Why would you pay money for that? Go find a creek and grab one.

She got ganged up on and wasted them, what's your problem man? I don't allow her to attack people and I don't enter her in many dogfights. Besides, she doesn't start fights, she just ends them. :mrgreen:

My dad had a pit and even as a puppy he was just too much work you really need a active lifestyle and lots of free time to have one of them. Pits are also banned in my county.

never heard of teakettle yorkies. My yorkie totally hates baths but isin't afraid to get his paws wet in the lake to chase ducks. I heard their needyness come from the breed, they are toally dependent on their handlers and want us around all the time. When I leave him alone in the house he spends the entire time literally crying... and like you said super friendly always wants to greet people at the door and get his head rubbed.

For reference, I had ferrets when I was a kid, but I would not consider owning a pet now. My roommate has a dog, which I hate. Also, I grew up on a farm and just generally don't like animals.

What's the value? All I see is a money-drain, something that makes your house filthy(er) and gobbles up food that you have to buy it. Plus the time you spend on it. I could see MAYBE having a cat around the house to kill rodents, but I would never let it in.

-TG


I used to think exactly like you and than I got my yorkie and i just got overly attached, Small dogs don't really each much at all. a bag of food ($12) will last several months for my dog. I also spend about $7 on treats will also last several months ( and i usually give him 3 every day) the filthyness is not really an issue i know most dogs/cats shed but yorkies don't i know it has something to do with their fur that doesn't shed or make you allergic. The time i spend dedicated to him is not much, usually 3-5 minutes twice a day is all he needs to do his business. I usually give him a bath every week so another 20 minutes, the rest of the time he is satisfied being on my lap or rubbing against my legs or just sleeping. having a pet, especially a dog i think can bring lots of unexpected laughter/happiness. I'm extremely happy with my dog to the point that i let him sleep with me and my fiance in bed which he loves being around us.

Yeah they are the same thing. I had the same though. Why purchase half of these pets? Just grab a wolf or a fox and boom! Canine Companion.

I saw something on reddit a couple of days ago where a guy had a pet fox. I'll admit it was pretty damn cute. Apparently you can buy them for like 8 grand.

In America?
I think there are limited places. It is hard for me to relate. California doesn't allow you to keep ferrets or gerbils, let alone something like a fox.

Just a nickname for Yorkies that are larger than the "breed standard" of 7lbs and what not. But Niki has never had a problem being left alone. She goes into her kennel wih a milkbone, eats it, and sleeps for however long I'm gone. She's a very laid back dog. Though, when she gets really excited, she tends to pee, generally when seeing someone she hasn't seen for awhile or someone new.

I worked briefly in Norman Wells once. They warned us to keep your lunch locked in a building or something because of the artic foxes. They're about the size of a cat and super cute.

We were on lunch break eating in a building when a pick up truck stopped at the building beside us. He left his window open while he went in. I watched a fox jump through the window grab his lunch bag and jump back out then scamper off like it had just picked up it's bagged lunch. Which it had really, pretty funny to see.

Yeh but for every 10 dog owners like yourself theres 1 idiot who owns a similar dog but is less responsible in their ownership, and for every 10 of those idiots some small kid somewhere gets their face ripped off by a violent dog. Thats how I view the situation.

So while you and your dog are not in anyway directly responsible for any harm, you are contributing to the social acceptance of violent dogs (even if your influence in the scheme of things is tiny). I think violent animals should be highly discouraged at every turn.

My number one rule about dogs is that they show zero aggression towards children so I can understand your concern. I've actually gotten into arguments in real life concerning this issue when people say "well, you should leave a dog alone when it's eating, blah blah blah". I don't think a dog should EVER growl at a kid.
When I say she is a killing machine, that's just a matter of fact really. She's all muscle and both breeds of which she is mixed are relentless fighters. It did make me proud when she wasted that group of dogs because I admire her strength/bravery and I suppose it appealed to my personal twisted sense of justice. ;)

I had a similar situation at a neighborhood dog park.....long story short, I conclude the majority of the people that hang at these parks are fucking idiots. I sacrificed my body to save MY dog from killing about 12 others that attacked HIM when we were playing ball (I guess he didnt fit in to their established clique....much like me ;o). He bloodied a few of them before I picked him up, myself being bitten and attacked by the swirling mass of "nice" dogs, and ran him to my truck. He did manage to sneak a few more bites from my arms, but I swear to god, every one of those fucking mutts would have been DEAD and I am sure I'd have had a bloody mess of an ALIVE doberman on my hands too.

Every one of thos dog owners simply stood there, mouths agape, watching this go down. EVERY fucking one.....UNbelievable. Went back and had a cathartic screaming fit at those dumbasses for 5 minutes or so....very cleansing....made quite an impression with my (favorite) torn, bloody jeans and tripled blood pressure....lol..I think CC dice were bad that morning..... Anyhow, no more dog parks for me; he can play with my friends dogs from now on ;o(

Oh yeah....my dobies have all LOVED kids....wonderful dogs if they are raised properly ;o)

My son has a 4 foot Ball Python; I had an 8 foot Boa for many years....any other reptile owners here?

Anyhow, no more dog parks for me; he can play with my friends dogs from now on ;o(

It is a little unfair how the "nice" breeds as you put it are allowed to get away with bloody murder while if my dog so much as curls it's lips at another dog people go white as a sheet. If you take temperament into consideration my dog is a million times less likely to start a brawl. I suppose I've just learned to accept it as a cost to owning a more powerful breed/mix (she's a mutt I'll admit).
I've never taken my dog to a dog park as they don't exist around here lol but I can imagine that the regulars there(dogs) would tend to form little "packs" and might gang up on a newbie.
One thing that's interesting though is I have brought my dog over to my parents house a number of times and they have a very ordinary looking and acting black lab female. One day the two of them got into it over who knows what and while my dog probably would have come out ahead in the long run it wasn't because my parent's dog was giving up. Suzie(my dog) had her by the neck but I could just tell by the few moments that went by before I broke it up that my parents dog was in it for the long run. It just goes to show that those "nice" breeds have it in them too.
