Methinks the knobs at Kage Games are missing the point. Fantasy game...? This ain't Lord of The Rings. Anyone who "fantasizes" about fighting dogs is clearly looking beyond the game itself.

Pretty feckin' irresponsible actions on the part of the "inspectors" as well, for being so lax in their duties post racing season, as well....and just who gave this man a license to have these dogs in the first place...?

Debbie..

Seems that Kage Games are living in a Fantasy World.

Everyone has fantasies, but most remain totally private. It seem that this use of the word fantasy to excuse socially unacceptable and illegal activities should be doomed. By extension it would be okay to have rape games because they are only "fantasy". I think not.

Thanks Val . All signed and commented.

A recurrent theme that comes up several times a week, is that of local authorities failing to control pet ownership, then cleaning up with guns or poison. Gee! I am totally pissed off with this.

Kosovo ( again) "The reason there is a dog problem is that the authorities have not enacted and enforced animal ownership legislation.

The dogs are the victims of this failure.

Rather that kill the victims, why not accept the moral responsibility and protect the dogs.

Just shooting them marks Kosovo as being out of step with other progressive countries."

Thanks Val. All done . The Puppy Mill problem just will not go away and seems to be instep with the massive industrialization of animal rearing (even rabbits).

From my own observation "pets" bred this way lack a great deal that can only come from the dedicated breeder. It often shows in the dog or cat.

Comment: "Industrialization of pet "production" is just adding to the problem of unwanted animals. Animal shelters and refuges continually struggle, and the wandering animals suffer.

Puppy Mills are contributing to this problem.

Puppy Mills are essentially about making money.

Animals should be a considered acquisition that has life long responsibilities.

They are not just another unit of production to be sold like any other consumer product, in supermarkets and shops."

Thanks Val. Some hardy perennials there.

The plastic bag issue is beyond belief. When I was a bit younger there were no plastic bags, everyone coped beautifully and the Earth rotated around the Sun. So what is it with the majority of mindless blobs of protoplasm called "shoppers" that they can't cope. Looking around here most seem to think that the end of bags will immediately precede the end of life as we know it (which I'd say would be a good thing). In Australia there is one bag free State and a few towns. The government behaves predictably by going for "self-regulation". What a joke. Self regulation never works.

 

I am going to try catnip.

Trying to grow some catnip - but my cat seems to like treats better now - weird.

Hi Simon - we are trying to do our bit here countrywide with the plastic bags and stuff.  We take our own non-plastic bags for shopping and should we forget we can buy the supermarket plastic bags - or just pack as is into our cars.  We also separate our plastics/cans/glass, which is collected once a week for recycling.  Generally I would say most people are on board with this which is a good sign.  Perhaps all is not lost.  Regards

Thanks Val You make it all easy culling and presenting the petitions for us.

The pet industry bothers me as it clearly has double standards.

My comment on Petsmart:

"Unfortunately animals sold in shops are sold for only one reason. Money. Pet shops are not altruistic dealing with "pets" merely because they love them.

They are stock items, and as with all stock provision must be made for wastage. So an injured animal is just a cost write off not worth wasting money on to have "mended" when a replacement can be obtained for less cost.

This is the brutal fact and needs to be recognized.

Animals are NOT stock. they need care and attention at all times."

Life...? Well, isn't that a turn for the books? Must be some serious underlying issues there. Perish the thought he should do life simply for killing an innocent living, breathing little creature like a Chihuahua....and that's right here in California? My my my... The guy looks like Richard Ramirez.

I know what ya mean, Val. Off to work with the little critters at the animal shelter, myself. Take care, all.
