There’s just something about this that doesn’t sit right with me

I don’t think it’s funny either, at all. It’s actually really sad



Dogs are animals that belong outside. Animals have fur to protect them against the elements. That’s some fur sheds for animals in certain climates. It’s natural for dogs to be outside. It isn’t natural for animals to be domesticated and kept inside

The fact that this asshole would build a small house for his dogs and have the audacity to brag about it on Facebook when there are people who are homeless.

not even for doing drugs, or being an alcoholic. homeless because of poverty, or mental illness, disability, or even domestic violence. Hell I personally know people in Florida who are now homeless because of the housing crisis.

Some close friends of mine had to travel for work because their leases went up on their places they were staying at and it’s too unaffordable to buy a house for the average person and it’s near to impossible to rent anywhere. People traveling and on the road because they’re homeless

But yeah sick house for your domesticated animals bro 🤙

But honestly, I wouldn’t take it too personal. They’re minding their business and doing good. Clearly they love their dogs. Some people don’t even feed their dogs. But these dogs get a whole house so you know they’re fed and taken care of. If anything, that should what matter most. Doesn’t matter if they’re inside or outside. Not everybody agrees with leaving their dogs outside and that’s ok.
The housing crisis is bad but come on, it’s not these people’s fault. and I don’t think they did it to brag, maybe they were displaying their talent so that they could build their business and get clients.

Having cage or small protected space for dog is ok... because there are sometimes leopard , mountain lions and bears which attacks on dogs while they are sleeping in our garden or outside of house...
But dogs are there also to protect our family too!
People sometimes give to much care to animals, spoiling them and their natural instinct of being animal, those poor dogs are not even able to protect themselves from other dogs and animals...
Dogs should be trained in both ways so they will never loose their natural instincts and defence abilities!
Love for dog is other thing,u can love and love also makes your responsibility to get them trained well so they can also protect themselves plus family from thief's and intruders#

@DevilCalling There’s nothing wrong with giving too much love and spoiling your dogs. Dogs only live 10 to 15 years and that’s if you do it right. That’s not that long that they have on this earth. So why not make it special for them? 🤷🏿‍♀️That’s what I’m doing with my dog Daisy. I want to create as much memories and bonds with her because I know these 15 years are going to come by fast. She’s already a year old. That means I have 14 years left with her. I want her to be able to look back and say that she had a good life because she was kept in a safe environment and loved right. It’s important to me. We as dog owners owe our dogs the best life that they could possibly have.

@TurtleDreams There is nothing wrong with your love for dog!
Animals deserve love and humans too!
I am just talking about training your dog so they can also protect themselves when u are not there for them!
I mean love your dogs or pets just like people love their children's... sending them schools to get good education!
So they can also be independent!
Here your love doesn't gets less

@DevilCalling Yeah, I agree that all dogs should go through basic training but spoiling them doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t trained or aren’t able to protect
I love this!!! Wish we could afford to do this for hubs’ hunting dogs.
@Pinkstarburst If each kennel had an individual run it would be the ideal set up for them. Shelter and room to run. A friend of ours trains labs and has this. It’s amazing.

@Pinkstarburst [quote]it would be the ideal set up for them[/quote]

everyone is free to spend their allowances how they please. i just dont understand why animals being inside is ideal. or why they just cant go outside like nature intended.
@DeluxedEdition Some breeds aren’t adapted to outside living. Some people don’t have yards. I know many folks that utilize dog parks for this reason or are active with them in other ways. Mine is both an inside and outside dog. He actually prefers to be outside when the weather is cool, but he loves to be in at night as a member of the family.

There’s a huge difference between owning a dog and having a pet. I agree that some people can go crazy when it comes to the things they spend on their companion and I have to pull back the reins myself sometimes. When you love them and they are a part of your family it’s easy to forget their needs are fairly simple.

If a homeless person is given a home who should be responsible for the taxes and insurance on the home

@DeluxedEdition You don't believe in helping people? I would rather help a person with a home than a dog. Is human life not more valuable than the life of a dog?

Which human?
I REALLY love my dogs.
DeluxedEdition · 26-30, F
@RocktheHouse i agree with you 🤷‍♀️
revenant · F
kind of tasteless but they are carrying on with their lives..I can see both sides of the argument

@DeluxedEdition ouch that was sooooooo abusive !!! putting dogs before you is criminal. Now I understand why you feel that way.

you were put at a lesser rank than an animal !!!
TurtleDreams · 22-25, F
@DeluxedEdition i agree with this
TurtleDreams · 22-25, F
@DeluxedEdition Im so sorry you had to go through this hun 😔😔

I guess it is his money to do with as he chooses. The last dog I had would not have survived living outdoors. A Boston Terrier can't stand the heat or the cold. It is an indoor dog.

The West and their obsession with pets is becoming creepy.
RocktheHouse · 36-40, M
@Budwick 🤣I'm American and many of us can see how absurd western ideology is becoming. Thousands of years ago in Egypt, they worshipped cats. At one time, Americans probably thought that was crazy.

@RocktheHouse [quote]'m American and many of us can see how absurd western ideology [/quote]

Two out of every three American homes includes a pet. Of the 393.3 million pets live in the United States, most are dogs, cats, and fish.. 85 million or 67% of American homes include a pet.; 95% of American pet owners consider their pets to be family members.;

So, if it's just numbers that count - you are in the minority. SO, STFU.
My dogs give me more love, security, happiness and friendship than any Marxist could ever hope.

@RocktheHouse [quote]The West and their obsession with pets is becoming creepy.[/quote] i agree it's very weird. i never understood it. when i grew up my family had seven dogs. It's extremely sad that americans or anyone for that matter would treat animals better than humans.
