    What would a breeder know about "kindness"?

    Paul, google pet shipping services. These service will make the flight arrangements, pickups and drop offs at both ends, kenneling as needed, etc. that's how we got two of our cats home when we moved back from Hawai'i. Good luck.


    Read this guys' post! He even said, "That beats dropping her off at a shelter's drop box because I'm currently left with no other choice...still haven't heard back from anyone."
    No other choice?!? icon_mad.gif

    There's no excuse for him. Like I said earlier, he even started a thread in which he was contemplating taking his dog to a shelter because he was sick and didn't want to take her out. icon_eek.gif

    Hey....wait a second. Aren't you the one not to long ago that killed a couple of his "pet chickens" just to try out a new dish? Makes sense now....icon_rolleyes.gif

    -And before all you haters start, this has nothing to do with me being a Vegetarian. But rather he himself had referred to the chickens as his pets.

    Tristan



    Lie. They're being raised on the farm and are/were most definitely not pets. You need some better meds, bro.


    Not really a lie. In that thread...entitled: Anyone ever slaughtered and cleaned a chicken? You said: "Turns out 3 of them are Cornish Rock Crosses - meat chickens. They're twice the size of the other birds and they can barely stand up of their own accord. I read that even in the best case these birds usually die at a very young age because their systems can't handle the muscle growth they're bred for, so I fear our guys wouldn't be long for this world regardless.


    So when you said, "our guys" that implied to me that they were more than just fun things for you to slaughter.

    You could have taken "your guys" to the vet and had them put down peacefully when their time came. But no you would rather kill/murder/slaughter "your guys" and then eat them.

    You and the OP, Paul related?

    I certainly hope finding a good home for her does NOT mean dropping her off at a shelter and hoping they will do it because they won't. They will kill her.

    But if you plan on getting rid of her, at least have the decency of only considering a no-kill rescue, like this one in Phoenix.

    I really feel as bad for your dog as I do for the ones already homeless (as it appears yours will soon be) because yours has a guardian who would so conveniently give her up: too cold outside, oh maybe I'll be traveling more, who knows....it's just sooooo inconvenient.

    To the comment about shipping - I personally would never want my dog to be handled like cargo, but I know there are circumstances when it must be done.

    HALO is a scam. It's not a no-kill shelter.

    It claims to be, as does the other local one (forgot the name). I called them both yesterday, and both said they don't take owned/adopted dogs...only strays. They even referred me to Animal Rescue (the kill shelter)! icon_eek.gif

    I will never feel the same about no-kill shelters again.

    That's good to know. Nice that you have done some research into that. I think unless you can get her to a great home in AZ, you should do whatever it takes to get her back to FL, then when you are back home comfortable without time pressures, you can think about what is best for you both.

    There are a lot of rescue agency that will help out. Is your dog a particular breed? She doesn't have to be pure bred. Breed-specific rescues might be more likely to accept her. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would like to have a dog that is already house trained and loving. It may be hard to find them on such short notice.

    As much as I dislike shelters that euthanize, they aren't the ones creating the over population of pets that aren't wanted. But I won't get on my soapbox about that right now.

    Do you really have to bring politics into other areas?

    It's a joke, not politics. Stop being so sensitive.

    Oh good lord. I'm an animal lover and have two beloved cats. But we also have some farm animals at the farm. Yes we're new to it. No, slaughtering a farm animal respectfully for food is not murder. I would argue that we know more about our food and where it comes from than most.

    And Paul, if you can't make to work with a pet shipper, please personally find a good home for your baby. You made a commitment, I hope you live up to it.

    You can say that again. My attempt at a bit of light relief was met with some baffling invective about a childhood trauma.

    Isn't an easy decision for you?!? WTF? icon_eek.gif

    Who in the hell are you trying to kid about this Paul? This is an absolutely easy decision for someone like you. Remember your thread entitled, "How to unhousebreak a dog" The one where you contemplated taking your dog to the shelter because you didn't want to take her out?

    Seriously Paul...don't sweat it. Get on with your life. icon_wink.gif
    While flying that toy plane of yours and looking at that beautiful horizon, don't allow the scene of what's happening to your dog cloud your judgement. You know the one where your loving faithful animal companion will be having a needle inserted into her vein to stop her heart while scared and surrounded by strangers. Then once she's dead she'll be tossed in an incinerator like a piece of trash.
    So please don't let that cloud your judgement at all. You have your whole new life in front of you. Wouldn't want you slamming into a side of a mountain or anything.

    Have a great flight Paul.

    Tristan

    Scruffypup saidLike others here, I remember last winter you were ready to drop your dog off at a shelter because you refused to walk your dog in 40 degree weather. Direct quote from you in that thread: "If the weather doesn't warm up by the end of the week, I'll take her to the shelter to find a new home."

    You really should not own a dog. I'm not saying this in a bitchy or judging manner....just telling you the facts. You do not have the personality to be a good guardian for a dog. You seem to view animals as objects rather than living creatures that actually have feelings and emotions. You don't "ship" a dog. You ship a TV set or a bar stool, but you don't ship a dog. I know people do it, but people do a lot of things they shouldn't do. Your dog will be terrified and traumatized. If it were my dog, I would do the same thing I would do for my child....either drive him there myself or have someone do it for me. If you think this a ridiculous solution, it only supports my opinion even more. Find someone who will give your dog a loving home.


    When I lived in Fiji (1994 - 2004), a wild dog gave birth in my compound. When I returned to the U.S., I had Bowser shipped on the same plane that I took. What else could I have done except to ship him? Charter a yacht? Obviously I couldn't drive over a few thousand miles of ocean. I could have found a home for him in Fiji, but people there do not take as good care of dogs as we Americans do and I would have been worried about him constantly. Probably he would not have lived as long. He was not a high-strung dog and didn't seem traumatized upon arrival at the LA airport or upon arrival at the Albuquerque airport.

    Sometimes there really is no choice but to ship a dog.

    msuNtx saidWhat if you flew the plane to Florida and put your dog up in a kennel while your flying. Then fly back to Phoenix on Southwest airlines of course and pick her up. I'm probably no help haha


    @Paul - This is actually a good solution. ^^^^^
