I have recently been receiving hate mail from a user on this board, currently using a name something like Much Inferior or something like that 😛 calling me names because I show my dogs love. This person thinks that anyone that LOVES their dogs is weak minded. Here is an exert from my latest hate mail:
You are INCOMPETENT to judge the truth & your pitiful attempts at preventing others from seeing are truly pathetic & sad.Just because you need the facts minced into mush,soaked in syrup & spoon-fed,doesn’t mean you can force your pablum on the rest of humankind.
This because I love my dogs.
I do not let them run wild. They are well trained and ne is a show dog. They are well cared for, eat better quality food than I do, and are a delight to be around. My vet always has nothing but good things to say about their behavior and health. They know their boundaries; misbehavior is dealt with appropriately.
I do not force them to wear clothes, nor do I carry the Papillons around in a purse. They do sleep in bed with me.
I give them hugs and kisses and they make me smile. I tell them I love them often, and show them even MORE often.
So I ask…Do you love your dogs in the same way? If not, what do you do differently?
In my opinion, anyone that doesn’t LOVE their dog doesn’t need to have one. Find another hobby. You don’t have to CODDLE them… I don’t… but I darned sure LOVE them.
