Am I the only one that had the image of a dog pulling its legs behind him around the house while the kids insist its fine? It may live another 3 years or so but are they quality years? Does it have the power to move itself from its own filth or does it lay there struggling to get away? I think 10 years is a long life for a dog. But if its senile or broken it may be kinder to put it down.
I work at a veterinary hospital, and the idea that any reputable hospital would euthanize an animal simply because it is “old” is fucking ridiculous. If anything, they would try to adopt the dog out to another, more sane family,
Yeah that would make the dog like 70….thats quite old! Of course, some dogs can be old and perfectly happy/healthy, but for fucksake, if its quality of life is shit what is the point of dragging out the last couple of years with the poor thing in pain??
If 1,000,000 people join his group, its sad-ass, moronic, attention whore of a creator will feel he/she is loved and a little less pathetic. It will also prove that at least 1,000,000 Facebook members are gullible fuckwits.
I thinks that just about covers every ‘If 1,000,000 people join’ group on Facebook.
Rant over. Now where’s my medication ?
I love the way your comment turns into Yoda speak.
Weird, I was just looking at this group yesterday. They claim that its creator is an 8 year old boy and that the dog is sick, and instead of three years, he meant three months. It’s all bullshit anyway.
Um, I don’t even like dogs but even I know that 10 years is nothing. Most dogs I have known have lived to 17-21. That 1 human year = 7 dog years equation is total BS by the way. I know larger dogs don’t live as long because they tend to have heart problems, but unless this is a Great Dane, 10 years is really nothing.
I wonder if this kid is gonna put his dad down if they reach the target and the dad kills the dog anyway… I don’t think it’s neccesary to put old dogs down unless – like someone mentioned before on this thread, he loses use of his limbs…
The creators of these types of groups should just fuck off and die already! I’ll slit my wrists if I don’t get 1 million people to join the “Save Svetlana the Whale” group. FFS. I need a drink.
Most likely the father has noticed some physical problems with the dog that are causing it pain and either can’t afford the cost of treatment or there is nothing to be done and it is in the animal’s best interests to be put down and end it’s suffering, in which case this guy is being a selfish little bitch.
@xxxtheworldsgreatestxxx you must enjoy practices in futility
the fact that he says he used a picture off the internet just proves its a pile of shite. And if the dad was /actually/ going to do this, he would do it regardless of the “support” the “kid” gets off facebook.
what’s gone wrong with facebook? Back in the day, it was simple and sweet, now it’s just gone group-crazy with everyone doing nothing but create and join groups/pages… and don’t get me started on the hundreds of pointless applications being made…
