You should ask my spouse about that. :) I think he will give the best answer.

Dogs give UNCONDITIONAL love, and their circumstance usually isnt voluntary like a trip abroad. To feel sorry for a homeless and hungry domestic animal isnt even a comparison to human behaviors..

People and especially women treat their dog on average much better than their spouse. In fact most women are nicer to a complete strangers dog or a stray dog than they are to their significant other.

I like most animals. The same cannot be said of most people

maybe the spouse is nicer to dogs because her husband is an entitled, whiny "tradclimber" who makes blanket morality judgments about society because someone wants to find a dog a home.

Hehehe... tradman, you stepped in it ;).

My wife treats me well, fortunately.

We've been trying to adopt another rescue dog but they have conflicted with the dog we already have. We're giving up in favor of giving our already good dog the best treatment we can, since we could only take in one more dog anyway. It's really hard to find the right doggie match!

It breaks your heart to see all these great dogs out there who don't have homes though. In particular, I feel really badly for the pit bulls who are stigmatized because of bad owners.

Really? I suppose you are entitled to feel that way, but it is a pretty strange thing to say. It smells a little like...ohhh what IS that smell... I can't quite define it but maybe...maybe it's Misogyny.



Edit: I do hope that dog finds a good home. Teddy is a one-dog dog for me though. Finacially, I cannot take on another dog, and also Teddy has shown to me that he has some issues with muscle dogs. At the vet today, the nicest Shephard came up to nose him, and Teddy's tail went so rigid I knew what was coming... "Let me at 'im!" Teddy snarled. "Let me AT him!" I think that is there was a word for a dog hating on another type of dog, like a misogynist does with women, Teddy would have that issue. "I can hear Teddy now..."In fact most muscle dogs (insert some erronious belief based on some past experience that is no longer relevant)"

There are rescue groups in So. Cal. that specialize in Alaska Malmute rescue, rehab, and placement. I highly recommend one of them be contacted for assistance.
Those dogs lucky enough to be a breed that has it's own rescue group usually do well in the long run. Unlike your average shelter, they do a pretty good job screening potential adopters and typically have a pretty high rate of successful adoptions.

Familiarity breeds contempt..dogs love unconditionally, spouses don't.

I didn't step in anything. you people are so blind with your dogs that you don't even realize that your whole yard is covered in dog sh#t. Heck I was shoveling dog sh#t at a guys house today and he was talking baby talk to the dog about being a bad boy. Just imagin what that would have sounded like if the wife had taken a huge dump on the front walkway.

Seriously Folks. just take a look at this site as a small cross section of society. A dog gets hurt and everyone is overflowing with sympathy.
A person gets hurt and most people judge them and many people ridicule them unless of course they are someone famous in which case they get almost (but not quite) as much love as a dog.

If you did a survey where the husbands knew with 200% certinty that the wife would NEVER know what they said or even that they took the survey and you asked the husbands, Who does the wife treat better. You or the dog? Garenfckenteed that at least 90% of them will answer The Dog.

If everyone simply gave as much love to their fellow humans as they give to dogs most of the worlds problems would be solved.

Just the facts baby ;)

PS. I mean no offense to anyone who knows or is a famous person. Everyone deservs to be loved regardless of their social stature. It is however a fact that the more well known a climber is the more of a free pass they get here on this site when they have an accident. Anna, this Not just about the peru thread though it is a great example of what I am talking about. Almost every climbing accident involving a human gets picked apart with a heavy dose of negativity.

The start of this thread was so full of blind love for the dog that I could not help myself from pointing it out when there is such a lack of love for the humans on this site. The attacks against me for pointing this out simply prove my point. If I was a barking dog most of you would have said something allong the lines of.. " oh it's Ok, look his tail is wagging. he just want's to play.. Isn't he cute!"

Heck, just look at how you treat each other on the Peru thread. Would you be that nasty to a stray dog?

You're classic, tradman. You speak some truth, for sure. We've been through this before with you.
You're not into dogs, you think we're slaves, etc...
At least you're bumping a thread with a worthwhile mission!

You guys have me all wrong if you think I hate dogs. I am quite selective on which dogs I like. If the dog is cool and someone else looks after them then I like em just fine. I do however see through their act. They are the best freeloaders on the planet.. Just imagin the sh#t you would be talking about any Human that was even half the accomplished freeloader of your average dog ;)

A few weeks ago a new dog moved into the neighborhood. Old guy, big red hound with a gray nose. He ambled over to my house and was looking in my front door with big droopy eyes, I opened the door and he ambled in like it was his house. I liked his vibe so I gave him a treat and we chatted a bit and then I told him he better head on home so he peed on my tires took a dump on my nice clean snow and then ambled on over to his house. He is a pretty cool dog.

So...if you asked the wives of those very men the same question, do you believe the women would say the men treated them better than the dog? Or are the men as in love with dogs as the women?

I got no problem with you liking or not liking dogs - it's the women-bashing that has got me wondering. You are railing about people not loving other people, and this is what you have to say about the females? Sure don't sound like love to me - conditional or without conditions!
