Treats on the Internets

ABC7 reports that the only dogs who get walked at the Chicago pound are the dozen or so deemed “adoptable” and housed in a special area.  The rest are locked away from the public, left to get sick and suffer in filthy cages before they are killed for no reason.  (Thanks Clarice for the link.)

Former Boulder City pound director/shelter pet thrill-killer Mary Jo Frazier made bail.  Check out the photo at the link.  Freaks gonna freak.  (Thanks Clarice.)

PETA gets asked about puppy killing, which they report to the state of VA that they do quite a lot of annually, responds with wife beating analogy.  (Warning:  photos of dead pets at link.)

A Buddhist monk who stopped his car on a side road in Oregon to do a little obedience training in a new environment with his dogs was violently attacked by a man screaming “Fuck Muslims”.  Come on, people.

A little visual test.

  1. The Chihuahua muffins are creepy.

    But not nearly as creepy as the Frazier pic. OMG. OMG.

    PeTA says asking about killing puppies is like asking someone how often they beat their wife. Um, yeah, I guess. As long as you’re required to send your wife-beating statistics to the state? I can honestly say that I’ve never beat my wife. Or killed a puppy. And I am incapable of rationalizing either one… wish they could say the same. Goddamn those people are beyond sick.

  2. What does a Buddist monk have to do with shelter pets? Please take me off the list unless this is strictly about animals. Thank you.


  3. A group called Rowan County Cats & Kittens says they took the cat to China Grove Animal Hospital, where he is being treated. They also say the cat’s jaw was broken at the shelter; I hope there’s an investigation into this.

  4. The article on the Buddhist monk, stopping to do obedience training with his dogs, made me think of the Monks of New Skete. They wrote several books about their training methods and were popular in the 90s before positive reinforcement training became so widespread. I’m sure the attack on the Buddhist monk was very upsetting to him, as well as the dogs. I’m hoping the dogs suffer no adverse effects from this incident..

    1. I related to the monk pulling off on the side road to work his dogs in a strange environment. I’ve done this many times when I’ve been training a dog for obedience competition (which I haven’t done in years). It never occurred to me that I might be at risk of violent attack while doing obedience training with my dog. I guess times have changed. (btw I have the puppy and the adult dog training books from the Monks of New Skete. They were very helpful to me.)
