Default PETA makes themselves look bad once again

http://www.abc6.com/story/20611337/p...-token-to-mutt

While I think it would be fine if they did decide to change the Monopoly token to a mixed breed dog, I really hope they don't do it for this reason. His argument is ridiculous and I have to wonder how much time and money is being spent on this issue.

Honestly, the good thing about this is it makes them look ridiculous. I think so many people are scared by PETA and their message that they are less of a threat now than HSUS. Hopefully people will eventually get the message.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

I can't say I ever realised the token was a specific breed. LOL

Yeah, because no purebred dogs are in shelters too.

I'm starting to really worry about the purebred dog fancy...

They lost me after they tried to convince people that seaworld was going against the 13th amendment.
Say what you will about seaworld. But to Compare performing animals to HUMAN SLAVERY?! SERIOUSLY?!

This whole monopoly dog thing is even worse. Do they have nothing better to do? I didn't even know the dog was a purebred. It's a tiny square dog.

It is pretty clearly a scottie IMO.


I had to LOL at "EVERYBODY WANTS A RESCUE DOG THESE DAYS!!" Like it's some kind of cool trend or something. Go to the mall and buy some Toms, pick up the new iPhone, eat some froyo, and oh, on your way home, go get a rescue dog....

I'm wondering how exactly they would make it a "clearly" mixed breed dog anyway. I confess I'm imagining something like looks more or less like a lab.

I know. After my own research, I actually think Sea World does a pretty **** good job with their animals.

Unfortunately, people are all too eager to jump on any sort of bandwagon- it creates a sense of unity and we all love to "fight" for something we're passionate about. The problem with the bandwagons is that they never show you the other side- you end up putting time and money into something that you really don't know much about. I was talking to someone who was a pretty strong HSUS supporter- and I showed her the information about their tax fraud, how they have been federally investigated several times for it, and where a large percentage of their money really goes (pension funds) and she was floored. People NEED to know where their money is going.

They should just make it a papillon and be done with it.

When I was a tiny little kid I LOVED that little monopoly scottie dog. He was obviously Jack, from Lady and the Tramp, and he was my Barbie's dog and he went everywhere. He was so beloved that one day I dropped him in the toilet and I was so desperate to get him out before he was mysteriously sucked down the drain that I reached my arm in and pulled him out. Then I made my mom boil him so he wouldn't have any germs.
