The wheelchair lady asked “can your dog walk?”

A few nice dog stroller images I found:

The lady said "yes." Irony.

Clearly, the dog WANTS to walk.

Then the dog gets its mouth wiped with a napkin.

Do you think we Americans could have avoided the Iraq War if journalists had asked better questions?

Question by Samian’s Nineteenth Account: Do you think we Americans could have avoided the Iraq War if journalists had asked better questions?
It still confuses me to this day why nobody asked President George W. Bush questions like,
“What will you do if there’s no weapons of mass destruction?”
“Wouldn’t the inability to find WMD’s mean we won’t have the credibility to fight future wars?”
“Is your administration willing to take responsibility for faked intelligence?”
“Will there be prosecutions?”

But all we got were idiotic questions from Tim Russert like, “So, how’s your dog doing, Mr. President? :)”

Why didn’t anybody ask meaningful questions?

the media doesn’t dictate how the president will act with intel from the military. so nothing the media did would have swayed his decision

In Training POLICE Dogs, Is it humane? Or Do they beat the Dog? (Just asked but I need to specify question)?

Question by xapryl: In Training POLICE Dogs, Is it humane? Or Do they beat the Dog? (Just asked but I need to specify question)?
My friend told me that they beat the dogs while in training for Service Police Dogs, is this true?

Well my boss bought this really expensive protection dog, it has been trained for 2 years professionally as a protection dog – its been trained like a police dog.

I saw him kick the dog once because it wasn’t paying attention to him. This wasn’t during a working session – this was just at his business office – so I made a comment to one of my co-workers… I told them if i saw him kick the dog once more im walking out the door.

Then my co-worker said “how do you think those dogs are trained?” they get beat on to make sure they dont let go when they are biting until the handler gives the “off” command – etc…

I beg to differ because i feel that if they beat dogs to train them – then the animal rights people would not allow them to train these dogs.
If you can please site a source
thanks so much for all your responses =) It has helped me confirm that I am not crazy to believe that was wrong of what he did

i work at a police/fire station (here they’re together in one building) and we have police dogs – and they’re not trained like that, they’re trained physically but not meanly and most police dogs speak dutch!

that guy was probably just mean to his dog because he was frustrated – which isn’t right -you should bring it up to him next time and confront him.

These people are harming my family + pets I already asked but I added more!?

Question by VampireDiaries/Transformersfan217: These people are harming my family + pets I already asked but I added more!?
Alright. I have a BIG problem with my neighbors. We had very friendly neighbors that helped us after our house burnt down, invited us over for dinner etc. There is a husband a wife two kids and two old grandmas. I live on 5 acres and have 7 dogs but two are puppies that are being sold. We’ve always just let our dogs out and they’d run up the mountain and play up there. They don’t actually run away… Just run around. Sometimes they go down our driveway and up the neighbors driveway to visit the neighbors, we didn’t care and they didn’t care. There was no risk there. For about 4 months the neighbors Rottie was sent away. He told us “Yeah my rottweiler just came back from guard dog training.” Once again the neighbors dogs were barking. My sister threw a rock at a giant mill and made a big bang sound and scared the dogs away. After wards for no reason our neighbor walked down the property line with his 100 pound rottweiler and bent down. My dogs all went nuts! My dog and their dog got in a fight. It ended up that the neighbor lied and said my beautiful dog bit him. He had a scratch from the barb-wire… Well the police came up dah dah duh…. Nothing happened. My dads a hunter once the dog was in OUR yard attacking OUR dogs and he fired a gun in the air. Guess what the neighbor said? That my dad threatened to kill him. My dads guns get taken away and the cops pointed a gun at me and my cousins head. Another time my dog (Dicky) was drooling and wouldn’t stop. He also was vommiting and had the runs. We took him to the vet and we learned that he’d been poisoned. Later that day same thing happen to another one of my dogs. Both poisoned by rat poison. Different day. My sister and my baby rottweiler and my 3 year old yorkie/maltese were up the back. The neighbors dog ripped my dog through the fence and ripped his muscle ripped his hide away from his skin or something and the vet bill 1,243.88$. We called the police (Me and my sister because my mom and dad were at my dads birthday dinner) and they refused to come up.The animal control comes up and tells the neighbors to keep their dogs locked up. Neighbors continued to let their dogs out. Next time. My two puppy’s went to the neighbors with the other dogs that always used to go over there to say hi (This is the first time they’ve been there since the first thing that happened). Only the two old ladies were home. We heard our puppy’s yelping. We run down the road and one of the old ladies is holding her rottie over top of my little dog. We looked up the driveway and an old lady was holding her two dogs collars almost pulling them down making my small dog scream. I yelled “Get your ugly mutts off her!” My dad was already trying to get over the fence. Karmin (my cousin) jumped over with no caution and grabbed the puppy. The old lady kept yelling “TRESPASSING!” but she still got the dog. Still the police refuse to come up. Also the old lady lied and said that there was a dog fight…. Honestly a dog fight? With a 5 pound yorkie/maltese and a 100 pound rottweiler? We had two puppies and the second one (Little Black) wouldn’t come back. My sister and her boyfriend went up there and asked them where our puppy was.. They yelled and screamed at her and she just left. My black puppy came back after dark but I’m pretty sure they had here and just threw her over the fence. My sister got a peace bond put against her so she couldn’t talk to the old ladies. The old lady was peering through the fence and my mom said some stuff to her and they said it was my sister and she went to jail for the night. She now is getting charged for threats which no one even mentioned anything about threatening, and breech of undertaking. She has to go to court on the 27th of July. I want to buy a horse, but if I do think about all the problems with the neighbors then! I’m sick and tired of having to worry every time the neighbors dogs bark. Once the police came up because my sister threw rocks at the mill, once because someone shot a gun and the neighbors said it was us. Its on going… And we are not going to fence in all 5 acres when my dogs have proven that they can get out. SHOULD I TRY TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM!?
AND MY DOG WAS POISONED IN MY YARD!

Answer by GreyhoundAdopter
Put a suitable fence around your house (you don’t have to fence in all your acres) & keep your dogs safely enclosed in their own yard – where you can watch them.

Letting dogs run loose in the neighborhood is totally unacceptable.

If you are good neighbors yourself and keep your dogs at home – you wouldn’t have these problems. If your dogs die from going over to the neighbor’s and eating rat poision they have put out for rodent control, you are the only one to blame for it.

It is your duty as a dog owner to protect your dogs.

Protection Dog Training – Frequently Asked Questions

Protection Dog Training – Frequently Asked Questions

Is a protection dog mean?

A well trained protection dog is social with everyone. A well trained protection dog does not interpret situations to show aggression, but rather waits for his owners command before using force.

Will a protection dog also be a watchdog and bark at everyone who comes to my door?

This depends on the training. A good trainer can develop a dog’s natural tendencies to customize the training to your situation.

Is a protection dog good to live in the house?

Dogs trained for protection such as German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, and Rottweilers are very adaptable and are just as capable living in an apartment as they are on a ranch. Regardless of where they live they should get adequate exercise.

Will a protection dog be good with my kids?

Some dogs are better than others with kids. Work with a qualified trainer to make sure that your dog will be fine with your kids. It is also important to note that children should be taught proper dog etiquette and should be supervised when around any dog.

Will a protection dog bite someone without my command?

A well trained protection dog will bite only on command. Unfortunately, there are many dog trainers who do a sub-par training job with protection dogs. Make sure you are getting your protection dog from a reputable trainer

How much does a protection dog cost?

If you buy a trained dog the cost will vary greatly. Factors will be age of dog, titles the dog has earned, look of the dog, amount of training, etc. A young dog with basic training can be bought for a few thousand while a dog with working titles and extensive additional training may cost ,000 and up.

I don’t have any particular threats. Should I get a protection dog?

Many people that purchase protection dogs haven’t had break-ins or stalkers or previous violent attacks. They value the benefits of a great pet who would be able to handle a violent situation were it to ever arise. People that shouldn’t get a protection dog are people that want to use them as an offensive weapon. These dogs should only be owned by responsible, mature people who want the dogs as a crime deterrent and last line of defense.

Are there specific laws that deal with protection dogs?

Yes. Certain cities require a special registration for protection dogs. Certain areas also have breed specific legislation which deals with restrictions for certain breeds. Check with your city and county offices for specific laws and ordinances.
