Excuse the play on words in addition to a huge FRAT warning, but these are some retrieved articles that may be of value for a few, introspective for some, and perhaps a reason to riot for others. Either way, they make for interesting reading:

LOL @ that bullshit on dog toys! dogs have a natural instinct to chew. it cleans thier teeth and releases energy/stress. i've never had a dog that i had to teach how to play with a toy, some real unnatural behavior.

"If you are overweight then I highly suggest you change to an all raw vegan diet. Human jaws open straight down and have flat molars for eating fruits and vegetables, unlike our dogs whose jaws open in a manner like this symbol < , and whose molars are sharp. Also drink only water. As well as perform a herbal colon cleanse. I guarantee you this will cause you to lose all your weight easily and naturally."



c'mon. seriously????

Never heard of, or seen a dog that become obsessive about toys and/or other inanimate objects?

In all these years you've never heard me talk about toys being nothing more than bribes?

Okay then!

No need to give a dog anything but its food and heartfelt praise, period.



c'mon. seriously????

And? You and I may not ever convert but that doesn't mean a) that diet is illegitimate, b) water isn't the source of life, and 3) colon cleanses aren't a viable detoxifier for general health and weight loss.

Or did the JC humane society give you an honorary medical degree in addition to all those other 'gems' over the years?? lmao

lol. i want you to say that chewing is not a natural behavior and that it serves no purpose like cleaning teeth. thats what i claimed. i didnt say that dogs cant becvome obsessed with something.

humans are omnivores just like apes. dont argue that. i dont want to argue about colon cleanses.

the humane society has given me a lot of hands on experience which means i dont have to read my opinions off of a website like baden or koehler or hell on paws like you.

1) The article is talking about obsession, not dental hygeine. Projecting irrelevant opinions is stupid.

2) Cherry picking with your criticisms now?

3) LOL. What life experiences do you have with dog training, Mike? CGC? Failed TDI evaluation? You've got an opinion on just about everything because you're reading from the humaniacs cue cards. I may be a pile of dog shit right now but I've paid my dues!

the article is about toys and how they should be completely eliminated because some dogs might obsess over them. it was YOU who was cherrypicking with your criticisms.

i would rather have tried something and failed than just read about it. Any opinion i have is based strictly on experience, something that you are overlooking the value of because you do not have it. I'd never call you a pile of shit for such a thing. its just the reason you run and hide or cry "humaniacs!" when someone calls out your credibility. so you're not a pile of shit, you're just full of it!

LOL. Show me where it mentions dental hygiene, Mike!

Huh? Nothing wrong with failure but I'm curious, when/where did you learn obedience via compulsion? You read the Koehler book and used it inconsistantly. When's the last time you did protection or any other type of serious training? That's right, never! Doesn't stop you from having cemented opinions on the subjects though, does it? And where do these opinions come from? The HSUS and other animal 'welfare' agencies that have no basis for what they write.

The dog shit label is self-described, Mike. Wouldn't want to put words in your mouth. But nevertheless I've paid my dues and have both legs to stand on because of it and I don't care who gives a shit.

Haven't red the articles but toys have been great for mine. Alleviates boredom, or so I assume.
