Best answer: They are personal property same as a car, microwave or bed.
It's pretty clear in the bible that God made humans to rule over other animals and not to be our equal.
Also pets are replaceable, if your dog dies you can get another one and forget about the old one.
Now if your mother or father dies can you replace them? Of course not.
We have to remember that dogs run on instinct there is little to no emotion, so they can't compare in any way shape or form to a human being.
Dog cannot speak, think, feel. They are inferior and useless.
So what is the purpose of having a pet dog? For entertainment/human pleasure. That's about it.
Some of these crazy dog owners who think dogs are more important than humans have serious mental health issues and probably have very few real life friends. They need to get out more.

Best answer: Absolutely fine, and works very well.
There are a couple of ways of doing it, probably the more liberal approach is to smack to over the head with a newspaper roll and shout 'NO' very loud in the dog's ear.
Probably the better and much more effective method is to beat it with a stick, could be a branch or even a baseball bat. Chokeholds work too, but the point is you are trying to teach it that you are it's master and it must obey you no matter what.
A good way to think about it, is if you have children when they are naughty you whip em with the good old leather belt. And that disciplines them to the point where once you do it they don't f*ck with you again. You have to make them remember the pain.....Well same principle with dogs except dogs have much better pain tolerance than human beings, so you have to go a little harder on em, but works like a charm.
Please remember there is a difference between abuse and discipline, it's only abuse if you hit them for no reason.

In November my landlords brought a kitten .They said she was a property cat that we did not have to worry about her or her costs. Time went on and the care for her was lackluster from the landlords and in my caring for her I grew to where she became very attached to me and I to her. She sits on my back almostthe entire time if I am in the house, balancing herself even if I'm cooking.January there was a possibility of me moving, I had a meeting with my landlords with witness they asked me "do you want to keep the cat" Afterthat i didn't move but their care for the cat went to non existent. The landlord even asked me about moving the litter box and the cat door to the outside in my room so she can no longer access public areas. I was served today with and eviction notice(i am behind on rent) and they stole the cat? Can they do this with the verbal agreement that I was keeping her? they in total bought 2 bags of food and 2 box of litter since they brought her they spayed her(at a place I believe was either free it got infected i got 3 pills for, the cat healed but not without a scar) I bought a giant bag of litter tons of cans of food at least one usually two a day since January, vetted and treated her for a tapeworm infection she got from fleas that she got from my landlords house when they took her to spay her and I treated those fleas. This isn't torture to just me but her too. Do I own the cat with that verbal agreement and witness? Can I call the cops and file a report?17 answers 2 days ago Cats

my sister refuses to ethunize her old dog that she had for 21 years, the dog can't hear, see, walk, and today has blood in his diarrhea stool... the vet advised her to ethunize him but she refuses to... she lived abroad and the dog was the only company she had all that time so its pretty understandable... and since we havent lived with the dog (me and my family) we aren't even allowed to tell her what she should do with him because we are not as emotionally attached to him as she is so its easy to say do this and do that... but when we tried she got upset and said she'll go back to live abroad if we kept telling her that....what should we do?13 answers 5 hours ago Dogs

Okay so I suffer with severe depression my dog has always felt things easily She stares and sits with you if you're upset, my father was abusive so when he used to come into the house she would go behind my legs and get angry when he came near. She hasn't been herself recently so I took her to the vet Because of the upset which has gone on in my house recently and with me it's effected her too so I feel guilty enough now!

Best answer: Foe the most part I do agree that the majority of pets, dogs, cats, Avery and reptiles should be left at home since there are a variety of obstacles that could compound problems such as;
People allergic to the pets.
Pets not clean, some shed, dander, and disturb etc.
Some people could simply not like animals and could be terrified from them or phobias from animals of any type.
Not all pets behave or ar trained well, poor socialization or have accidents which can be smelled across the whole ward.
Poorly socialized animals could propose a threat towards other patients and staff.
Some pet owners think if their pet "tinkles" in the room it's okay, staff will clean it up for them.
Crowded schedules, not all pets could visit at he same time so it would have to be staggered time wise to prevent problems.
If you allow dogs and cats other pet owners would whine and spoil it for them because their gator or boa or parrot etc wasnt allowed the same visitation rights therefore causing problems for everyone.
What would be the appropriate visit time... Some owners would want their pet from am till pm... pets need to relieve themselves and staff cannot take the animals out.
Limitation of pets, if a patient has 8 dogs and wants the, all to visit it's unfair to other patients that a whole day would be spent on the visit.
A special visitation room wouldn't work as it competes for space and resources that most hospitals or care facilities cannot accommodate, plus they would need to be staffed according to the law about not leaving an ill patient alone and unsupervised, taking a nurse or aide away during the visit.
These are just some of the problems that have cone up over the years that facilities have tried different programs without success.
While I do agree that a visit from a pet perks many patients up, most pets are not up to the stress of travel, strange people, noises and surroundings which can make shedding worse, diahrrhea, vomiting. Crying and whining which does disturb other patients.
Most facilities have therapy dogs that come in and visit to give people their hunk of missing their pet fix and people can sign up for visitation from then. Until a good alternate comes up where everyone is safe from the pets dander etc it's the best they have worked up till this point.
Even with therapy dogs there are a lot of limitations where they can visit also due to chronic wounds, burn units, people with severe allergies and fears, many sterile environments cannot be crossed even with service dogs.
