urg….so why haven't they learned depression yet???
>>218496> every one was trained to be the best it could be.
doubt it. Most of retarded dogs have retarded owners who don't train them.
Animals actually have ability to feel depression. Alienation could be one of reasons why a dog might feel depressed.
when people are angry, they get super passionate about expressing this anger in some form. this isn't really a big deal to most of the pro dog people. none of them really care about this opinion and aren't taking it seriously.
I have the scar of a rotweiler/German shepherd hybrid which tore a chunk of my arm off when I was 11, but I overall think doogals are actually more compassionate than most pets when treated well.
>>222257>dogs are more compassionate than most pets>dogs feel compassion
to be capable of compassion one needs to be capable of having morals and to accomplish this first they'd need to be conscious of themselves in the same level humans are. Life isn't a Disney movie and animals lack morals.
Humans can be compassionate, not dogs or cats or whatever animal you like for any reason.https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/06/pets-dogs-cats-eat-dead-owners-forensics-science/
they cant make any arguments regarding dogs not being shit, so that's all they can do. if it irritates or annoys you seeing dumb dog reaction memes, they see that as a 'win'
I think you seperate humans too sharply from the world of animals. Morality and goodness are nothing more than necessary survival functions for social, group-oriented organisms. As survival functions they are fundamentally selfish. "Goodness" in terms of morality generally boils down to "altruism" (doing good for others at the expense of the self), but in reality the relationships are symbiotic; you are compelled by your brain chemistry to help others because they will then be in a better position to help you. You are compelled to do so because that is how your instincts evolved, and many animals that evolved as social, group-oriented animals exhibit the equivalent behaviour of "moral goodness". It takes no higher level of conciousness to acheive this behaviour, because it is instinctual; and, I will add pre-emptively, that the display of altruistic behaviour in situations when one has nothing to gain in doing so is really nothing more than a misappropriation of this instinct, usually only by those who have the wealth to afford it. (Not to mention indirect gains like popularity).
You use the fact that dogs and cats often eat their owners after they die as an example of pets lacking morality, but the way human family members might squabble to get the best assets and pay-outs from the estate of a dying or recently passed elder is fairly analogous.
I’m advising to be aware of the language we use when we refer to the behavior animals can present, so as not to be misled into believing that animals are just like us, as so often happens. It's incredibly irritating to find people treating animals as if they were humans, or in many cases, better than humans.

I don't know what led you to write such a cynical comment but I'm gonna do what only a human can, and I will decide to be bad by telling you to kiss your pious and merciful dog in its compassionate ass.
Cats and dogs eat dead owners because they understand fundamentally better than humans that life is transient, that the matter that they consume, the vehicle in which its owner existed, is just that. And that its owner is not that disoccupied vehicle.
Humans foolishly cling onto the remains (this word, what a contradiction!) of dead humans. "And to dust you shall return!". Dust refers to the process of breaking down (decomposition) into smaller units. Organisms die and decompose, returning to Mother Earth, thus feeding plants and continuing the cycle of life/energy. And eating a carcass is this same process of returning to dust. The (say) dog eats its owner's former body, catabolizes this and creates energy thus continuing the cycle of life and energy. The law of conservation!
Humans are wrong. Nature is right.
bro, i love genesis 3.
>>222397>In 24 percent of the cases in the 2015 review, which all involved dogs, less than a day had passed before the partially eaten body was found. What’s more, some of the dogs had access to normal food they hadn’t eaten.
animal with morals: have respect for the dead and don't eat them
animals without morals: eat their dead owner and friend the second they die even if they have food available
You're only proving my point that animals lack morals and to expect them to be like humans is dumb and totally wrong.
You're still right but there is no morality surrounding non sentient entities anyway. You can do anything you want with a corpse. You won't harm or kill it.
Having "respect" for the dead is expressed in different ways in human cultures also. Some people express their grief by eating the dead's corpses. Also why are you obsessed about reusing corpses when they are merely another food source?
I had a dog before everyone started picking up the dog's shit.
We had a different relationship than I imagine most people have with their dog now when they have to do that.
>>222369>the truth is the same, animals cannot act upon principles or morals and become virtuous in any way
Neither can most people, but I'm sure they're still able to feel happy, sad and other base emotions like that.
Why do you care?>>222656
Let them do what they wish.
Neighborhood dogs maul deerhttps://www.liveleak.com/view?t=axSZQ_1557239815

Fuck deer. Always destroying my wizgarden. Nothing more than giant rats.
Theres too many deers after humans killed all the predators
>While sitting outside on his porch neighbor, a man heard an unusual sound of an animal in distress. Hurrying into his backyard, he found two large dogs, off-leash, bringing down the medium sized female deer.
The man's spouse immediately grabbed her phone and recorded the incident as it unfolded. The gruesome video captured the moment the dogs mortally wounded the deer and the helplessness of the dog’s owners to stop the attack.
An Eagle County, Colorado sheriff’s deputy responded to the scene after a 911 call was placed but it was too late. Later the case was turned over to the department of Eagle County Animal Services division.
This is not the first time the dogs have behaved this way, the man claims. About two years ago one of the dogs killed a fawn. “These dogs have come into my yard a dozen times. They come after me, my wife and my guests.”
Disgusting. Get the freaking bat or something, god dammit. You couldn't just "do nothing", you let that deer die because all you did was record that deer getting mauled and slowly killed by two dogs for FUN. There's no way those dogs are doing that for food. They already attack you, so they're probably just crazy dogs. I like dogs mostly, but I wouldn't hesitate to kill these animals or any other problem animals that threaten my life. Get a gun or something. Don't you have some way to protect yourself? Wasn't it apparent after the second or third time this has happened that you need to protect yourselves?
Off this topic, I can't find a good reason for a dog for myself. When you get a dog, any dog, you have more responsibilities. You need to feed, walk, and take care of that dog. Most people cannot do that. They'll put their dog down or release them (make them homeless) if there are any problems. My mother's friend did just that and got two new dogs. The old dog didn't get along with the other two, I hear. When a dog needs medical attention, most people will not provide that to their dog, despite that being their responsibility. That dog is a living being than has needs and medical attention, just like a human. It should be looked down upon harshly for people who do that. They might also need to give away their privilege to own a dog, in my eyes. I can't imagine doing that to a human. Both are living beings that feel pain and trust you, and you would both let them down and let them die. I was in St. Kitts, and they treat dogs horribly there. Digs are but guards, but are starved to make them more aggressive. They're being exploited for sure. Unlike a regular guard, which would be compensated by money or something else like a place to live and food, these dogs get none of that. They live a horrible life.
I would say dogs are not the problem. They're but animals that can be trained. They can be trained to not bark or try to attack people while on a leash. Dog owners are the problem. There are too many dogs in this world, and most owners are unable to to have a dog. They cannot train it or even use it. They'll let it rot and grow fat, get diseases, and eventually be put down. I'm amazed most people can even have kids, but even here, they'll grow fat and be burdened. Luckily though, humans live longer than dogs, and can control their own destinies. They'll hopefully straighten whatever flaws they have in their life.
I think what they did was pretty smart and pragmatic actually. I'm no expert in law but getting a bat and beating someone's dog to death (on the owner's property, I'm assuming, it's not too clear in the video) because it's attacking a wild animal seems like it's something you could get in trouble for. I would not risk fines, community service or other bullshit just to save a fucking deer.
Also by allowing the attack they got evidence of how vicious the dogs were so that animal control could step in.
But definitely if my neighbor had those kinds of dogs I would be carrying a gun on me at all times and be ready to kill if they entered my property and threatened me or anyone else.
made the mistake of going downtown on thursday night.
i was victim of an unprovoked attack by a kaffirs GSD.
when the kaffir saw me calling the popo he followed me for blocks looking for a chance to beat / shank me…
idiots with dogs all over the place, minimal or 0 control over their mutts.
f**k this state, i am moving up into the mountains where all i have to deal with are wolves and black bears/grizzlies.
Then, to top it off a 10 year old pos skateboard trash tried to run me down and the followed me for blocks screaming threats/obscenities when i objected to him being on the sidewalk (350$ fine).
i live in the worlds largest open air insane asylum!
i hate dogs more than ever now!
Pet hate is a really effective way of drawing normalfags out of the woodwork.

Normalfags complain about people chewing too loud and other minor noises they're not subjected to nearly as often but somehow they're ok with this shit? In fact, most people actually react with sympathy when they hear a loud annoying dog, as opposed to annoyance
dogs must be the equivalent of lolibabas for wolves, theyve evolved to be 'cute' and deformed. thats so strange how some breeds are so small
dogs take down game, they evolved to do so. This faggot sounds like a whiny cunt vegan
next time they will maul you y'know
A couple houses over from me was a nuisance dog that didn't shut the fuck up except maybe a couple hours at night, for 15 years. We complained to the city many times but they shrugged. These noxious fucking creatures are so deeply ingrained to everything considered "normal" that nobody gives a second thought to them shitting on sidewalks and disturbing the peace 24/7.
The day the silence came and I realized that piece of shit finally croaked I felt like a broken old man who steps out of prison and sees the sun for the first time since he was a kid.
dark chocolate solves a lot of dawg problems!
Just imagine if all of the money, resources, and attention that gets directed towards dogs instead went towards the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, disadvantaged youth, infrastructure and scientific research. Civilization would advance leaps and miles. But instead society wants to pamper and spoil useless dogs while calling disadvantaged young people "entitled" and telling them to pick themselves up from their bootstraps.
Hell, you could direct all of that money/attention/resources towards digging ditches in the Nevada desert, and civilization would still be better off considering you'd have to hire people to dig said ditches (lower unemployment) and best of all the mutts would all starve to death, putting an end to endless barking and dog shit all over the sidewalks. >>224163
People overestimate how lethal chocolate is to dogs. A larger mutt would have to eat like 5 pounds of it to die.
Antifreeze is a much better option.
I'm not some pussy ass bitch afraid of dogs. I've spent my life around them and never had so much as a nip from one. Dangerous dogs are easy to tell in their body language and very rarely will a dog attack unprovoked. >>224150
Most countries have laws against dog shit on the pavement. You can report people for it.>>224207
Stupidity in a nutshell. No matter how much money you throw at whackos and niggers they're never going to improve. They're hommeless and niggers because they're fucked up and can't function. No amount of money will solve those problems. And if you did care about mentally ill people, homeless or the disabled you would notice everyone of them benefits from having a dog. Having a dog to guard you while you sleep is homeless 101.
When you're poor enough to live on the fringe of consumer society you don't give a shit about money and material comfort anyway. The state decided to build brand new homes for impoverished natives over here and the first thing the natives did when they moved in was to tear down as much shit from the houses as they could to use as firewood.
>>224212>Most countries have laws against dog shit on the pavement.
There's also technically laws against having dogs that bark excessively or at least "quiet hours" in most jurisdictions. The issue is they're very rarely enforced and even if you report it (be it owners with dogs that bark at all hours of the night, or owners who don't pick dog shit up) the chances of police doing anything (even so much as a fine) is very slim. Even power tripping, ticket happy cops are overly lax on shitty owners, probably because they're all mutt lovers too.
a full size worthless pos useless
dumbass golden lab (yes i know, redundant)
ate a standard hershey bar, the vet bill came to 2300$
doggy was very messed up, and grandkid got his ass beat to the point where felony child abuse charges were filed.
all because of one of the most useless dog breeds on the planet and a 78 cent candy bar…
Why did the kid get his ass beat? There something I'm missing here?
probably for feeding the retard doggy chocolate
>>224207>Antifreeze is a much better option.
The problem is its hard to get a retarded dog to eat antifreeze, it would be much easier to toss a bar of dark chocolate over the fence
Antifreeze is actually sweet to taste, so it’s not that hard. Maybe dip some chocolate in antifreeze.
ding ding ding we have a winner!
