[QUOTE=thebigragu;2220913]I would rather people be responsible and nueter their pets. i love steak and have no problem eating meat. But dogs are not just animals in my opinion. they are called mans best friend for a reason they are loyal to their dying day.[/QUOTE]
You should spend some time studying how dogs behave in natural environments. They'd tear you apart and eat you before you could say "Down boy!". Even well socialized dogs, when returned to a natural pack/predatory environment, quickly loose their loyalty to man.
So, please, let's call a dog what it is: Another member of the food chain.
And, for the record, I love dogs.
Every predatory animal in the natural world kills and eats its prey without remorse. And somehow, PETA thinks animals are better than people. Simpler, perhaps, but better?
Bunch of looney toons.
