    Agreed. I just can't see the point of cats, what do they actually do that's useful? As far as dogs are concerned, I can't respect anything who's first instinct on meeting a stranger is to go and sniff that stranger's arse.

    I've had some dogs in my time but fortunately don't have any photos.

    Agreed. I liken it to people intentionally breeding batches of children that could never grow past a mental age of 10 months, and then other people lining up to pay good money to look after them until they crap on the carpet a bunch of times and die. I can't understand why anyone would want that. And yet those of us that don't really want these mental imbeciles jumping and slobbering on us are somehow unreasonable.

    For all I know sniffing the arse of a stranger may be acceptable in the sailing community, but sorry, it just doesn't float my boat.

    Agreed...never had a dog as a pet, a guard dog occasionally here in Mexico and previously in Tennessee that was never ever allowed in the house.

    All strays that wander onto my land get killed....simple....my neighbours do the same.....people come out from the city and dump their dogs on the highway, 6 months later they are starving and roaming in packs, they've killed 2 baby goats and one adult female goat jumped the fence in panic and I never found her.....lost 5 chickens to dogs as well.....they are a menace.

    When I've gone to people's houses and seen dogs wandering around the kitchen or sat on a sofa I honestly am horrified....each to their own I guess but dogs ain't for me....sorry

    The number of arguments I have had over the years with other dog owners and the general public, I think you should get one.

    I have always wondered if people like you would make the same sort of comment in Pompey or Guz.

    I love my dog Pete, I can have the worst day but when I come in none of that matters cause of the lovely welcome, much more affectionate than the missus ha ha.

    My dog Oscar goes ( to a point ) everywhere with me . On average I would say we walk 20 miles a day. Keeps me fit . The love and devotion I get from him is priceless.

    Feed and walk your dog and you will have a friend for life.....or as long as the dog's life. The look on her face when I get her lead out is reward enough for me.

    Never trust anyone who dislikes dogs, a good rule in life.

    I can't understand why anyone would go on a thread that is clearly marked O/T Dogs, if they have no interest in dogs.

    I have no interest in horse racing or cricket, I have nothing to gain by going on horse racing and cricket threads just to say I don't like them. In fact I'd feel every inch the prat, I'd made myself look.

    Just because you can post on every thread doesn't mean you have to.

    Cats and dogs provide companionship for many lonely people, particularly in later life. If your support network includes friends and family, consider yourself lucky. There are many people less fortunate (possibly through no fault of their own). For some of these people dog ownership fosters social interaction.

    You can post what you like, I'm not going to enter into an argument, so I guess that makes you the winner.
