I'm also looking forward to "Glory Hounds'. Military, police and other service animals fascinate and move me. They give so much and ask so little--but that's the nature of most dogs, I think.

I believe anyone who abuses a dog should be sentenced to be treated exactly the same way. But then I'm pretty primitive in some ways, and think that about a lot of crimes.

Nothing wrong with that. I feel that way about anyone who mistreats someone or something that can't/won't fight back. But I have my reasons for that

most pets ask for so little in return. a little love and affection, food and shelter, some attention and they are loyal to the end. perhaps some people could learn something from an animal!

i give all my dogs and cats love and attention and they return it ten times! people who would mistreat or abuse an animal are seriously in need of an azz whooping.

I've posted this before, but want to again. The boxer was a starving foundling and the gold one was a rescue (a nose sticking out of the Sunday paper). They have never had a argument and share everything including our love. They are getting old now (12 and 16), as are we. I will have to go on meds when they pass. If I can arrange it, they will pass in their own home.

That would be nice. My first dog moved to a farm in Wyoming... At least that's what my Dad told me. I still miss him.

Jgoertz, they are good looking dogs! huge respect for those people who take in a stray or a rescue dog and make it part of the family and give them a second chance.

i see there are many here who have rescued and taken in strays and given them a better life. well people, i have huge amounts of respect for you for doing this.

All three of my dogs were "used" dogs. One from the shelter and the other two who bought their puppies "impulse buy" from a pet shop that sells puppies then 6 months down the road decide they don't like having a dog. One of my "puppy mill/pet shop/ dogs has some health issues due to poor breeding. She has hip dysplasia and has some "neurotic issues". She spins and she has certain triggers that make her spin. I have to tell her to "Stop". If you click on the "neurotic issues" above, it will connect you to a link.

That's interesting. I have a friend who adopted a little puppy that was hit by a car, even though it's leg is better it still will only walk on three legs sometimes.

It probably has pain from time to time. My little Pug is very well built in the shoulders and has almost no muscle mass in her hips. She also has a curved spine from the way she walks. She puts almost no weight on her back legs. She uses them but you can tell by her body composition she relies on her front legs much more when moving about. I have even see her take a few steps on just her front legs when finishing urinating. Sometimes my little Pug stumbles in the back end.

I can't wait for glory hounds! It's about time our canine soldiers got some well deserved spotlight. I can't believe it took all this time (till recently) to get them off the "equipment: other" list. That was shameful.
