Add spay and neuter to that list and I agree completely. Perfectly worded.

I'm slowly, but surely moving over to that opinion of desexing, as well. I have always been of the "speuter every pet that isn't going to be bred" belief, but the more I learn, the more I move away from that. I will probably still speuter future pets, but I will definitely do it much later than I did with my current pets.

I guess since I've paid for both to be done, I do support it.

I prefer cropped/docked on Dobes, Boxers, Min Pins. Danes I actually prefer with natural ears. Dogos- cropped ears. Pit bulls- I can go either way. My Aunt's Dalmatian had a docked tail due to an injury and he didn't look bad with it! Saved a lot stuff from getting knocked off the table tops!

I've held 2 litters of Dobe pups for tail docking and dew claw removal. It really wasn't that big of a deal for the pups. None of them made a fuss or really seemed to have any issues once it was over. Ear cropping I like the look, but I would prefer someone else to deal with the aftermath as I hate taping ears on breeds with longer crops!

But I do not support cutting their vocal cords or declawing cats. I know to some one is no worse than the others, but that is just the way I feel. Cropping/docking doesn't bother me, but the others do.

Not my dog not my business and it shouldn't be anyone else's business either.

Exactly!
Personally I wouldn't crop any dog unless it was a LGD. Cropping them is a much better alternative then having them ripped off by a coyote. Docking I would do if I owned a dobe or such, but my breed is au' natural so that's kind of null. I am for removing dews that aren't well attached I've seen far to many curs with floppy dews have them ripped off in the woods but prefer lines that have them well attached anyway. End the end though your dog your business not mine.

I've seen people make the same exact point regarding animal cruelty laws. The dog is theirs so they should be able to whatever they please with it and animal cruelty laws should be repealed.

Banning ear cropping would be just like any other addition to current animal welfare laws.

And the truth is some animal cruelty laws are ridiculous.

I find it neglectful and dangerous to feed some foods, should it be a law? Nope.

The laws are too weak in many places. You barely were required to have shelter for dogs left outside until several years ago here.

The brand of food and Kibble vs. Raw doesn't make that much of a difference to the dog.

Very debatable and the laws are too strict in many places.

Legally limiting my ownership of more than 3 dogs, legally limiting my breed of dog, legally denying me ownership of a break stick, a treadmill, a flirt pole, a spring pole, and a tie out just because a few trashpots abused their use is ignorant and alarmist.
