Good to hear it!

There are lots of elderly people in Bude and surrounds and many own at least one dog. The evidence for bad ownership is all too plain to see (and hear) round here. It's the bad owners that get my goat, not the good ones or the well-behaved dogs. I just wish there were more of them. I still think that all dogs should be licensed and that the cost of a licence should reflect the cost of cleaning the streets and parks of dog mess and the provision and emptying of bins. Of course, any politician trying to impose that would be in the same boat as Biden suddenly banning all guns,doubling the price of petrol or siding with Palestine...

"every responsible dog owner (who is in full control, can make his dog walk to heel, who treats it well, who keeps it on a non-expanding lead, who trains it not to bark or to run at people or other dogs and who picks up the shit even when no-one is looking)

I'm certain that the dog-owning contributors here are all highly responsible, Doug. Also, I applaud the fact that 'twas Bonzo who started the thread, but would point out that the post would hardly have been needed had the world been replete with similarly responsible owners. Sadly, it seems that for every responsible dog owner (who is in full control, can make his dog walk to heel, who treats it well, who keeps it on a non-expanding lead, who trains it not to bark or to run at people or other dogs and who picks up the shit even when no-one is looking), there are plenty who are utterly unfit to own dogs. It's free, and far too easy, to own a dog.

In short, please be careful when allowing your dog off lead and be mindful of others around you.

During this 'heatwave' which is apparently going to be very dodgy next week, I'm a bit worried about foolish dog-owners leaving their poor animal in a car while they go shopping etc. You'd think everyone was aware of the suffering this causes (and Police might justifiably smash a car window to save a poor dog from dying) but it does happen.

Our greyhound had a greyt time in a 6 acre enclosed field last night just 10 minutes drive away. We had the 8-9pm slot so nice and cool. The grass was cut short so easy for my wife to push her mobility walker, and to see any dog crap so that it can be removed and put in bins provided.

I just learned that, according to the CDC, dogs and cats are susceptible to COVID-19.

https://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/covid-19/pets.html

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/covid-19-pets-prevention.pdf

The salient facts are:
• The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals during close contact.
• The risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is low.
• Pets can get serious illness from infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, but this is extremely rare.

I can only speak for myself, Doug. I repeat: I don't take my cat into the street, into parks, playing fields, nature reserves or on beaches. Way over 35 years ago, we lived in Loughton, had a tiny garden and had two cats. All I can tell you is that every single one of our neighbours also had cats. All was harmonious on the catshit front. I suppose that was lucky. I know that many non-cat neighbours of cat owners complain about catshit in their flower beds, etc. It definitely ain't right, I confess. But at least those errant cats don't bark like buggery for hours, threaten your kids or shit all over the streets.

I've lived here for 35 years and have half an acre and no neighbours. My neutered cats have never strayed and have never shat in anyone else's garden.

Lots of cat owners have tiny gardens and have no idea where their cats disappear to once they are let outside. Yes, there are irresponsible dog owners who do not clear up after their dogs but there are plenty of others who do. I can't recall seeing anyone following their cat, poo bag in hand.

I don't hate dogs. I'm a biologist who savours the amazing diversity of life on earth. I hate irresponsible and entitled dog owners. And that is a very large number of them, possibly even a majority. The dog-defenders here are shooting at the wrong target. It's the masses of bad owners, the shit-leavers, the dog non-controllers, the people who don't get that we don't all want their pooches running up to us and who let their dogs bark, who bring dog ownership into disrepute. That's who the wrong 'uns are.

I must say that I agree with the sentiment that it does not mean you are somehow deprived if you don't like dogs. I don't mind dogs at all but I would never own one out of choice. They do nothing for me. What I do not like is the entitlement that some dog owners feel they have over us 'mere mortals'. It is not a right to allow your pooch to run up to children or vulnerable people and lick them. It is not a good excuse to laugh and say "oh, he's only being friendly". It is not acceptable to either leave heaps of dog shit on the playground or, worse in some cases, scoop up said shit in a bag and then leave it dangling on other peoples gates.

Before anyone says otherwise, I am sure that neither Jonh nor Bonzo are in this category but, sadly, many are and if I say it is wrong, I am branded a dog-hater or a whatever-is-is-ophobe. I am neither but, just like millions of others, I am not a cynophilist!

(Ignoring the idiot Donuel for now...)

"It’s very sad that they are incapable of experiencing the joy that the unconditional affection and companionship of a dog can bring to rational people."

I get great joy and companionship with real human beings, even affection sometimes. I find the notion that you get great joy from an animal who can't talk to you, can't challenge you intellectually, who gives you fake love only because you're the hand that feeds it and who is comfortably far more dumb than you are to be interesting, even poignant. It's very sad that you think that not being particularly fond of dogs makes me a sad case. It's all part of the doggie mindset, he's only being friendly so don't be silly, dogs have to poo somewhere after all (parks, playing fields, streets, beaches), and the rules don't apply to my dog anyway because he's such a good little doggie, and you non-doggie taxpayers ought to be grateful that we get you to pay for our dogshit bins (which are an optional facility anyway).

I have a cat. Cats carry pathogens, just like dogs. Generally, cats don't bite and are quiet (if your dog barks a lot, it means that you are a lousy owner). I've lived here for 35 years and have half an acre and no neighbours. My neutered cats have never strayed and have never shat in anyone else's garden. I don't take my cat into streets, parks, playing fields or on beaches. Unlike your dogshit, including the smears left behind when you pick up the shit if someone's looking, my catshit is all mine, exclusively. Just in case you bring up cats.

That laser attention to the possibility of "fecal matter" from dogs supposes that there aren't birds and fish and tons of other critters pooping in the water. If there's a red tide then you know the water is unsafe; if there is a sewage dump then you know the water is unsafe. Regular everyday critters at the edge of the regular ocean are plenty safe.

Donuel, his name was actually Arlo, Jack Shit was what I called his breed. I was sitting on a bench out on Canal St one night and a group was going home from the bar. One of the girls asked "Ooh, what kind of dog is that?" I said "He's a Jack Shit" and her boyfriend said that was the funniest thing he heard all year. You would have like knowing Arlo. He was funny and feisty and brave and cute as all get out. In the movie "Dean Spanley" which I heartily recommend, Peter O'toole's character say that there are only ever seven great dogs on Earth at any given time. Well, Arlo was one of the seven. He left us far too soon and broke our hearts.

(I was responding to Donuel). A few years ago a young girl died after contracting E. coli from dog faeces on Dawlish beach near here. Anecdotes are easy to come by but they prove little. Churchill smoked all his life and drank brandy and champagne every day. He lived to 95. My mum smoked for 65 years and enjoyed a diet that I'd call terrible, and she didn't quite make it to 92. Tenets for good living can rarely be gleaned from anecdotes.

Of course.

If Emma bit you, you would be wise to get an anti-tetanus jab if you're not already well-protected.
As for frolicking in the waves, it raises the quasi-philosophical question as to what's more important, dogs or children? Our children are precious to us, we invest huge amounts of time, money, and emotion in bringing them up to be the future of humanity. Your dog is your hobby. I'd add to that that dogs do not routinely clean themselves or are cleaned by parents, unlike children, they carry several pathogens in their unclean mouths and up and around their unwiped and unwashed anuses. So no, dogs and children should not mix in the sea. In fact, dogs shouldn't even be on busy beaches at all.

Steve said that dogs frolicking in the waves with children is unhygienic. For the dogs or the kids?
Someone said earlier that they thought small dogs were more likely to bite and this is statistically true, but is also an example of the inadequacy of statistics. I'll use my two dogs as an example. One is a 65lb pitbull and the other is a 12 pound chug. The chug, Emma Rose, hates everyone and would much more be inclined to nip someone than Bagel the pittie who likes most people. The difference is the potential for damage. If Emma bit you the worst scenario would be a tiny puncture you might want a pinky bandage for. Now if Bagel ever did decide someone needed biting, he could crush bones. Of course I'd never allow that. On the rare occasion that he does take an instant dislike to someone he gives fair warning with his "I mean business" bark. I keep him on a short leash at such times, but I also trust his judgment.
If anyone wondered what a chug is, it's a cross between a chihuahua and a pug. When my wife said we were getting such a hybrid I said it should be called a chi-pug in honor of 70's all-female punk rock band, Chi-Pig. But my wife said "It's already a thing and it's called a chug!" But then, when we had Jack Russell/shit-tzu mix I told anyone who asked that it was a Jack Shit.

Depends if they've been brought up together. Herself's auntie was staff to a cat, and was given a small puppy: they coexisted reasonably well, as long as the dog remembered that the cat was quite definitely in charge.

YMMV. Mebbe it's a size thing.

It’s not just Travellers - recently in a village a few miles from us a couple - both ‘respectable’ and very well-britched company-directors - were prosecuted for organising dog-fighting meetings, and breeding Staffies for fighting.

A person’s personal standards aren’t necessarily indicated by their wealth and place in society, Bonz. As an accountant and a Tory muggins, you should be amply aware of that fact.


Bonzo's remark and the following responses were removed. That kind of slang is never left in place here on Mudcat. -----mudelf
