>inb4 catfags take the bait
>inb4 spergouts and mass bannings
why do this OP
Yes but it seems to be an unpopular opinion on lolcow. I am not asking if any person in this world loves dogs, just it there are anons here that have something nice to say instead of hating on them >>301102
The pic in the other thread does suggest that cats are superior to dogs.
Frankly I personally do not hate cats, but the topics are so closely related they would come up anyway.
Catfags can make their own thread as I did
>>301110>The pic in the other thread does suggest that cats are superior to dogs.
No, it really doesn't. At all. It's just a dog who most likely had it coming getting kicked in the face by a cat.
>Frankly I personally do not want to admit I hate cats, but I will indirectly admit I encourage hating cats and their owners and welcome it in my thread.
>Catfags can make their own thread as I did
Or you could've made a pet love thread and tried not to get triggered
by the inevitable cat posters. Then, we wouldn't need two threads with such closely related topics that are only separate because the OPs are petty fucking children.
>>301129>Frankly I personally do not want to admit I hate cats, but I will indirectly admit I encourage hating cats and their owners and welcome it in my thread.
Because OP is the same sperg who bolted from the dog hate thread after she told to leave and hide it. Made this thread within 30 minutes of her last reply even.
Of course she's a child.
You are triggered
cause you love shitting on dogs (even when it does not make sense) but can't stand someone saying something possibly mean about cats.
Now take your own advice and stop ~infighting~ and shitting up this thread. Go back to your designated dog hate area. You are derailing.

anon the original dog-hate thread was made cause someone was sperging in the unpopular opinions thread and flounced the same way the OP of this one did.
you can't just tell someone to leave a thread and follow them to the one they made and get pissy.

I love dogs and cats equally, they both have their perks and for Gods sake(!) it's not a competition.
I really want to adopt a puppy and a kitten at the same time some time in the future, when I have more stability, so that they can grow up as friends, or at least cordial roommates.

contributin doog mem I guess
i had a dog who was about 5 years old and got an older cat and they became best friends!
it was the cutest thing ever. yellow lab and a grey longhair, they'd sleep curled up together.
I haven't shit on dogs at all in that thread, only some bad dog owners. I don't hate dogs, nor do I adore cats, but I also don't think getting so upset about the dog hate thread that you make a cat hate/ dog love combo thread out of spite is a rational thing to do lmao. Who's really triggered
p.s. how can one shit up a thread that was shit from the start?

My dog once killed a cat who kept climbing on top of the wall between the yard and the street.
The cat liked staring at my dog getting angry at him for sitting on top of our wall.
One day, the cat slipped.
It is a story of great moral value: do not be arrogant.(stop)

I think about this ASW comic every now and then and just want to cry.
I'm adopting a puppy soon and I am already horrified about it growing old and dying. I love dogs so goddamn much. They have this purity and kindness about them that is overwhelming.
Years back, my mom managed to snatch an almost dead min pin mix from the street. He got abandoned at the train station and kept waiting for the owner till he starved to death. The poor dog was horrified of people so much he did not dare to take food from anyone. He spent his days nervously roaming around the station. When my mom caught him, he was too sick to move and just skin and bones. He also lost sight in one of the eyes due to being hit by a car. The vet managed to save him in the nick od time.
It took years for the dog to learn how to bark and to not be afraid of his family. A broom dropping to the floor made him pee himself and show his tummy. He was terrified of loud voices and sudden movements. His previous owner not only starved him, but also was physically abusive.
The min pin has been living with my parents for 8 years or so and is the gentlest, kindest creature I ever knew. Every time my knees hurt, he could sense it and licked them. He never did it for anyone else. I had to stop him the few times when my knees were bleeding and not just in rheumatic pain. He is so happy when someone pets his sides, gives him food (a side-effect of his shit owner starving him is that he is obsessed with food to the point of swallowing everything in a second, and constantly begging for food).
He loves toys, cuddles, food and sleeping. I don't understand how could someone be so cruel to such a gentle soul.
I wish he lived with us always. I wish he could live forever. His muzzle is all grey now and I worry that I will lose him soon. I tell myself that I will have another dog by then to help me with the grieving process but it will be so hard anyway.
NTA but it's a bannable offense to shit up a thread. It's called derailing, or infighting, even shitposting. I don't really understand why you somehow think that anon making a thread so she doesn't shit yours up is a bad thing. You were bitching about her complaining in the other thread and yet here you are shitting this one up.
Whatever though, most of us don't have time to be so petty/cringy.
Same. Dogs are the sunshine of my life… When I hear about cruelty against them (or any animal tbh) I just wish I could save every dog there is and beg them for forgivness. All animals deserve to be treated with respect, but dogs literally evolved to live with humans, to help us out. We have such unique relationship and it destroys me when some people take advantage of it in the most disgusting way.
Maybe there is something wrong with me, because I have zero interest in children (I do not hate them tho), but dogs make me want to protect, cherish and love them forever. I love their silly quirks, the way they look into our eyes, their joy.
The dogs I met are the purest creatures.
Fuck man I am crying now
We're hardly shitting up the thread, just acknowledging how lame the whole premise is. But go ahead and cry to the mods if you must.
>I don't really understand why you somehow think that anon making a thread so she doesn't shit yours up is a bad thing
It's just so petty and immature. She only made it because she got triggered
by the other thread and wanted to spite the posters who fought with her, who are all cat people in her mind. There's no other reason for it to exist. I wasn't the one arguing with her in the other thread either, I just now skimmed through their argument.

as a bystander I hope no one gets banned ITT, people should argue and disagree freely, dogfags and catfags alike
I'm glad you can read in my mind.
I was thinking of making this thread before the shitstorm in the other one, but felt too lazy. The negativity towards dogs depresses me and I wanted to have a positive thread about dogs. You want me to stop arguing and let you shit on dogs in peace (even when you are ignorant as fuck in regards to animal health), fair enough, but don't come to my thread to whine about me gtfo and doing my thing.
Shut the fuck up, hide the thread and go back to whining about dogs in your thread.
This is the last thing I will say on the topic.

I've been lurking this whole time and I'm honestly entertained by the notion that you think the other anons who've been chewing you out this whole time have been me, the person you tried to come at because I didn't care that my friend's annoying dog is fat.
You're a person who wants people to know you're really knowledgeable about dogs and their health, but what you were autistically missing in the last thread is me telling you I don't care about fat dogs, nor do I view it as my responsibility to police my friends on how they feed their pets.
Honestly you could have just been mature and made a "pet appreciation" thread or something. Other anons are right, you care more about your grandstanding against catfags than you do your love of dogs, people are laughing because of how much of a spiteful toddler you're acting like. We have your number figured perfectly kek.

Are dog haters really so insufferable that they go into hysterics when a thread is made that contradicts their paper feelings
Other thread was fucking cringe with try hard edgelords who talk like they're in a goddamn Mean Girls movie. "huh?? i bet ur an amerifag who likes doggos~~~ :))" . The secondhand embarrassment was palpable. I wonder if they actually have any friends that isn't a cat who doesn't give a shit about them
Anyways, I work regularly with dogs and I love them. They're incredibly tolerant. I once cared for a husky that sat on command and listened to you even though it barely knew you. I can't think of any other animal that would do this

lol. there's an anon here trying to desperately stir some stupid clique drama over DOGS because apparently they have nothing better going on in their life. Not even gonna dignify that troll with a response.
I don't mind people who hate dogs. Their complaints are valid. It starts to get pathetic when they try to troll people who happen to like dogs. Get a life : )>>301333

Not really a fan of dog with floppy mouths tbh but I can appreciate the history of the breed.
Talking about big dogs, I think Irish Wolfhounds are awesome. Wish I could see more of them.
>>301338>get a life : )
Speaking of, don't you have some irl friends to talk about dogs with or go on a walk?
Thanks for responding, even though I'm no troll and I'm just here to watch you say more silly things.
As if you don't love the attention!
Nobody's trolling you're just an idiot, of course you feel trolled because you can't help but respond.

I really want to adopt a dog when I finally settle down. If I ever live in the countryside I would like to have a rottweiller or a german sheperd to protect my house, if I keep living in the city I would want a cute little dog like a maltese, I only want females. The best would be to have a big dog and a small dog and have them be best friends ofc.

I got my pup a few hours before she was about to be euthanized, I love her so much and so happy I found her. She actually looks a lot like the pic you posted, but dark brown and floppy ears!
Love GWPs too, I am talking with a rescue and might be fostering an 8-month-old pointer soon. It will be so hard to part with them when they find their permanent home though

I would love to just adopt senior dogs from rescues. It'd be nice to just give them a year of a comfortable and loving life before they pass away>>301502
I used to know a cat that would try to get you to rub its belly and bite you as soon as you got near it. They're bipolar but still adorable
damn anon I'm about to cry I love my dog so much lol.
I used to keep my dog in her crate when I left, but now that she's grown up she can be trusted around my apartment. Every day when I come home for lunch I find her snuggled up under my duvet cover, she crawls under there every morning even though I make my bed before I leave. And when I get home I can see her tail wagging underneath the covers and it's just so cute. She is such a good dog, never barks except when she's excited and playing with another dog, and loves to cuddle
I work at a vet clinic so I'm used to the reality of these things. What's nice is that now there's vets willing to do in-house euthanasias so at least they get to spend their last moments in their own home.
It's sad, but it's part of owning any animal
File: 1538106184328.png (378.95 KB, 720x1401, 10-Rules-for-Feeding-Your-Dog-…)
so cute!! my dog loves apples, for some reason whenever I try and give her strawberries she buries them in her bed
Does anyone feed their dog a raw diet? I've been thinking about switching mine but it seems complicated and I'm worried I won't give her the nutrients she needs
A regular kibble diet is just fine. Just make sure you don't get some cheap store brand kibble and you'll be good to go.
imo a raw diet is more hassle than its worth
>>301595>current dog cries to get up on the sofa and when you take too long he sneezes lol
oh my god, my dog does this sneezy snort through his nose whenever he wants to play. i always sneeze back to him and he gets so waggy, we go back and forth and it’s like we’re having a sneeze chat haha. he’s getting old now, but he’s still so good natured and kind he’s such a good boy.
dogs are the best.
I would figure feeding raw meat gets even more expensive in the long run.
I bought a 15 pound bag of kibble for my dog and I can tell its going to last me a year or so. The pros of owning a small animal.
You're acting as if the dog went to kill a cute innocent cat in its home.
Dogs are very territorial animals and natural hunters on top of that.
Very few dogs will pass the chance to kill a random cat that repeatedly enters their territory and even refuses to leave after barking at it.
It's absolutely normal behavior and once the dog goes for it, you can't do much unless the dog is poodle-sized.
Hunting breeds will by instinct go straight for the throat and kill it in very little time.
No one is at fault except the cat and its owner if there was one.
The local butchers give the stuff they can't sell to dog owners for free, it's good meat and bones, they just can't sell it because it's not the parts that people want to eat
I cook it though I don't give it raw
Sshh, that was a troll post to egg on drama. Ignore the bait>>301756
I don't know how you cook your meat for your dogs, but keep in mind cooking oil is bad for their health. I often hear of dogs with pancreatitis after Thanksgiving and the like

"Are dogfags really so insufferable and narcissistic that they have to make a dog love thread when dog love is accepted literally everywhere else on the internet and in real life except this thread that was made so people can rant about dogs and idiot owners without being called psychopaths and terrible people just for not liking a certain animal?"
Luckily I haven't personally met many of these but just hearing about shit owners makes my blood boil.
I'm lurking a facebook community for a dog of a breed that I will adopt in two months and I am happy to see that most owners there are responsible and informed, they look for health practices that have doctors that are educated about the particular breed's issues.
Every now and then I see a person that adopted from a puppy mill and acts retarded and I just get so angry.
I am so invested in getting my own dream dog, I chose the best kennel (sadly cannot adopt a rescue dog as I am not THAT rich to get a dog that has serious health issues from the start and can develop more on the way), I read about owner's experiences and want to ask as many questions as possible…. and here you have fucks that just got the dog cause it's cute or fashionable, without doing research.
>>301927>sadly cannot adopt a rescue dog as I am not THAT rich to get a dog that has serious health issues from the start and can develop more on the way
That´s really not true. I volunteer at an animal shelter and of course, some dogs have health issues, especially those who have been strays for years.
But there are loads of healthy dogs. They have puppies, too.
I want a specific breed, anon.
I have two shelter dogs at my parent's house though and I want to adopt another one myself after some time.
what breed are you looking for>>301850
My dogs on the older side and a bit tubby after getting spayed. Found out she absolutely loves baby carrots and cheerios and shes actually managed to lose some weight and gain some sheen to her haircoat. So proud i found a healthier diet for her
Lmao I love it when people who have never seen a narcissist, even a bad movie version of one, try to bring narcissism into play.
Narcissistic people dislike dogs because dogs are more likeable and get more positive interactions. They’re more likely to be the dog abuser.
You just give them raw meat. Or I guess you could boil it but dogs shouldn't have cooked bones>>301711
Yeah a 25 lb bag of my dog's food is $113 and it lasts…. maybe two months? You might want to buy smaller bags of food though if you're not keeping it in an airtight container because it can go bad
I’m not taking advice from anyone who thinks liking an animal is a symptom of narcissism.
Having lived and worked with them for decades, I know plenty without some random sperg with a hateboner for pet owners suggesting or diagnosing their projected bullshit.
The armchair psychiatrists calling out narcissism or whatever else is embarrassing. The mental people are the ones so offended that someone likes an animal they don’t that they imagine all sorts of flaws and disorders when they could and should just hush up and let people be happy.

Wow anon you're so edgy
You don't have to do jack shit if you've got proof of your dog not barking. I honestly doubt there's much she can do about it
I've got a neighbor who claims she hears the washing machine going in the middle of the night. It's possible your neighbor is either hallucinating or just can't tell where the sounds are coming from
Why use an example that has absolutely nothing to do with narcissism then?
Why get pissy when your vague and poorly represented point is questioned? Just make a coherent point next time fam.
There's some psychotic dog hating anon (or a few of them) in /ot/ that spends all her time sperging about how she hates dogs in the unpopular opinions thread, vent thread, the dog hate thread etc. Sometimes literally about how she hates service dogs. I'd say it's just a dedicated troll but I've seen so many people go fucking bonkers with their dog hate so she's most likely not. >>301595
My dog passed away a few years ago and I haven't been able to get a new one due to my life situation being too busy, but here are some of my favourite things about him>He was always super happy to see me>He came to wake me up every morning and was happy that I got up>He snuggled next to me on the couch and made me feel loved>Or if I was crying, he'd snuggle next to me and comfort me, clearly aware that I was in distress. He'd also let me hug him even though he normally hated being hugged >He kept amazing me by always being smarter than I gave him credit for>He defended me against an assault attempt>Never once bit me, growled at me, or did anything bad, but still had a temper and a captivating personality
He was such a wonderful dog.
