    Well if you eat meat sonny, then animals being property is your best friend. If your dog eats meat then animals being property is his best friend. Cause if they wasn't property, you would starve, or eat not nearly as well. I have eaten dog and cat horse, and sundry other critters, as far as I am concerned if I own em they mine to eat or sell to be eaten, every single one of em. I like pigs they be friendly animals make good pets too. That said when I want bacon on the table and ham in the smoker, his buddies is gona watch me do him in, hang him and drain him in preparation to go to the butcher. I am pretty sure there are more than a few ranchers and farmers who think the same. Cause if you don't own em you cant sell em. That would be a problem for the city slickers who like their meat.

    The dead human in question does not share your view apparently and I think her wishes when the pooch bites the big one should be observed and the pooches ashes mixed with hers as per her last will and testament. That would be the respectful thing to do.

    So why can't humans use their special dignity to show dignity to their pets?

    I see... What is this "special dignity" and how is it affected by mixing ashes together?

    Sonny? I'm a vegan actually, and my two dogs eat a plant based diet. So yes, I have a problem with other animals being property, and all vegans eat just fine by the way.

    Part of me empathizes with the woman, whose first choice was to have the dog taken to a no-kill animal shelter to be cared for the rest of its life. However, her estate didn't have enough money for that to happen.

    This made me think, what if my husband and I die and leave our three adult cats? We have no friends or family who will take them. The authorities will simply crate them up and send them to the pound, where they will shake with terror until they are finally dragged out of the cage by strangers and murdered, alone and unloved.

    I don't know. Even thinking about this has made me tear up. Our pets are so dear to us, and they are our responsibility. What happens when we are gone?

    You feed you dogs a strictly vegan diet? That's unnatural and bordering on animal cruelty. No, that is animal cruelty. Dogs are NOT vegans anybody that treats a dog as one, is ****ing fool. Your dog is NOT a human child, no matter how much you protest otherwise. Your dog is a carnivore, feed like one. Its stupid to try and feed a cow ground up bones and beef parts (mad cow anyone), just like its stupid to feed carnivore just plants. Dogs get by on dog food because it has meat in it and the proper nutrients, but it is not a good diet no matter how much Purina and the boys claim. If you want a healthy dog or cat then there diet needs to have sources of protein, raw protein preferable. That would come from bones, fat, scraps, rodents, insects, birds, and occasional hunks of raw meat around my place. Humans get by because we are omnivorous don't mean a strictly vegan diet is good for you. A animal don't get a say in what you feed them, it is your responsibility to feed them correctly, whether they be pets or food animals, not only because its the right thing to do, but because you benefit from it too.

    LOL! You'll eat dogs but you wouldn't DARE feed them plants? Yea okay, you have no idea what the **** you're talking about. Dogs are not obligate carnivores. There are many dogs that have lived perfectly healthy lives on a plant-based diet. Mine get regular vet check-ups and are doing great.

    First of all, her first choice was to have the animal sent to a specific no-kill sanctuary in another state. Also, most people, even many so-called animal lovers, don't even bother mentioning their pets in their wills, especially not nine-year-old male German Shepherds that have shown a tendency towards aggressive behavior. This "idiot and selfish bitch" had a valid reason for desiring to have have her dog euthanized, and it wasn't just so it could be buried with her:

    Ley (the deceased owner) didn't trust Bela to be around others and the 105-pound dog has a history of aggressive behavior. He told WCPO that a veterinarian recommended Bela be put down. "He could cause damage and inflict bodily harm on strangers, in particular, children."

    We have our pets provided for in our will; we have younger friends who have agreed to take them and, if they don't, we have money set aside to send them to a place where they can live out their lives.
