Thanks Rebel. It's nice for some intelligent opinion to come across. I just dont like kids.... really really dont. Does that mean I'll go up to people and say "hey, I hate kids, get them away from me"... well okay I'm thinking it in my head but I dont say it.
If people want kids, go for it. I'm just not gonna ohh and ahh over them or give a shoot what the hell they do and do not do.
Kids are like the new fad now. Everyone is super involved with them and just wont leave them the hell alone, and wonder why they have so many problems.
exactly rebel . everyone is entitled to their own opinion. if someone doesnt like kids, they are better off not having them. my sister is 40 years old. she has never wanted kids or pets and has never had either. she doesnt understand how i could have raised 6 kids and all my dogs and been happy. i dont understand how she could not like either. BUT we dont down each other for our choices. we have our own lives and our choices do not affect each other.
its seems like the ones getting all the flack here are the ones that dont like kids. so what if they dont like them ? whats it matter to anyone else ? its their lives and their choices. and unless we walk in their shoes we have no right to judge them for their choices. its not a wrong or right question, but rather and either or.

Merico I will agree on one point a lot of times I hate humans as well. When I see a starving dog be it pictures or real life I say I hate humans. When I see or read of abused animals I say I hate humans. When I see did animals in the road I say I hate humans. Like the other day I saw a family of raccoons died on the side of the road I cried all they way home and told my husband I hate humans. How hard is it to avoid running down an animal. Heck I don't even run over snakes I slow down and wait for them to move or when possible I move out of the snakes way.
I guess it is just a different philosophy. You think most people suck, I don't. I think most people are good, but may make bad choices.
What I think that sucks about people is their lack of love and respect for their fellow person. THat is the root of WHY people suck. It is a me, me, me attitude.
Some people want to say terrible things because "it's my opinion, and I am entitled to it". Well fine. You have your opinion-- but it is bad culturally, and morally to value pets more than children.
Shoot, I would even rescue any of you people if you were in a burning building-- even those that didn't really deserve it. Isn't that a comforting thought? It's scary that I couldn't count on you to do the same thing.
Him, my mother and I, went on a walk one time, about a year ago. We thought we were on the trail but I guess we went off without realizing. It started pouring ran and then got dark. We kept going around in circles and ending up in this field. I put Riley on his leash (he had been off) and started to cry, and he pulled me with all his strength, not stopping when I fell, and just pulled me forward until we got out of the woods. We ended up being 1/2 mile from the car where he got us out.
And another time I was at the bank, got in my car after Riley and I left, guy comes up to my car and wants me to give him money. Riley gets in my lap and growls and bares his teeth. Guy goes away. Yay for Riley.
Wow Ashley.....Riley is amazing!!! Aside from his beautiful face, he sounds like he's got a heart of gold. That is so amazing that he knew when he needed to pull you through. And that he knew when it was the appropriate time to show his teeth...
Riley, you rock! I know your momma is darn proud ;)
Awwww! That is such a cute picture. My old dog Gizmo, sweetest boy ever. He bit my evil step mom lol when he went to live with her for a bit, she was a cold hearted.. ughhh! lol. So, in a way,I think he knew she was the one responsible for the breakdown of my family.
And someone came into our bakcyard once, and he was going crazy so as soon as we set our alarm on and let gizmo out he ran lol from a 5pound dog!
Oh Ashley I dont believe I have ever seen such an adorable picture of such devotion...you can look into Riley's eyes and tell he is right where he belongs with you and that he couldn't be happier then to be sitting right there by you. you just made my night with that picture ;) Riley's eyes say everything........his love and his devotion to you is very apparent.
Did you forget in all your ranting that you are human too?
what does this mean?
"Kids are like the new fad now. Everyone is super involved with them and just wont leave them the hell alone, and wonder why they have so many problems. "
IF ONLY people WERE super involved in their kids lives.....the world would be a better place. I wish everyone could have the childhood I did. My parents are my best friends!
Your posts are pretty abrasive. That you want to push kids down...(I'm always tempted to push them down when I see them. HAHAHA. Move bitch.)and you would be running around saving the animals and hope the humans find their way out.
If I remember right, you werent breastfed, right? ;)
I am with you alicat...people are inherently good and I like to believe it....but I do see the ugly side every day and more than most of any of you....yet, I still believe.

What is your problem with Mere, TM? She doesn't like kids? What does that matter to you? She'd prefer to save her dogs over a human. You may not think that is right, but what does it matter to you? I highly doubt you will ever be in the situation that Mere needs to choose you or her dogs lives. Come on. Get over it.
