Jul 31st 2009 12:43PM People can be reasoned with, dogs cannot. If a human cannot be reasoned with we get them out of our lives. Dogs should be no different. Common sense will tell you that dogs are capable of being dangerous, if they are known to be aggressive and you have tried all other alternatives, they should be put down. Humans we put away into prison. Euthenasia is a much more humane way to deal with it. Of course we couldn't do that with humans.
Jul 28th 2009 12:12PM At dollar stores you can get an all purpose cleaner called "Awesome" in a spray bottle. It's gotten hair dye out of carpets for me, blood out of a white cotton shirt, and koolaid off of counter tops. The most it has ever cost me is 1.00 and it's never bleached anything I've used it on out. But I would test in an inconspicuous area on dark fabrics just to be safe.

Jul 11th 2009 8:17PM Yeah, let's blame the coyotes who's area's we have taken over, thankfully, they are an adaptable species. The coyotes are just doing what comes naturally, protecting their territory from other predators. No matter how cute, tiny and cuddly a dog may be to us, to coyotes they are competition for food resources. And for those anti coyote and other "wild savages". Let's talk when your home is over run by rodents, why will that happen? Because rodents, including rabbits are their main food. Unchecked by predators they can very quickly reproduce into near plauge sized groups. Every animal has a place in this world, and it's a fact of nature that smaller animals are lower down on the food chain and are at risk of being taken out. Lord knows humans have done that for centuries, to the detriment of our world I might add.
Jul 11th 2009 8:03PM How do you know he needed it? He was obviously happy to get them their dog back, the dog their children still spoke about and missed. The gentleman's only regret? That he didn't think to scan the puppy earlier. You're reading so much into the story that isn't there. And just because someone is rich doesn't mean that they treat their dogs as replaceable commodities.
Jul 11th 2009 8:01PM Wow gINA, must be nice to be perfect. Dogs have a natural desire to roam, dog owners know that and responcible owners chip their dogs in case the worse happens. And they didn't just sit back, they called everyone they could think of that might have found the dog, local vets, animal shelters and what not. And I'm leary of people who say "I NEVER", it's not skill that's gotten you this far, it's luck. And I'm a responsible mom and have had pets all my 40 years of life. And no, I've never lost my child but I've haven't kepts her tied to my waist either. And miracles of miracles, she is learning self reliance.
Jul 1st 2009 12:00PM Yes, they are "just" dogs, but dog fights are horribly cruel. These dogs are misstreated, shot up, non-socialized (even with other dogs) and then expected to kill or be killed. So, yes, it IS a big thing, and fighting these cases takes nothing away from the regular police force as they are investigated by designated animal protective services.
Jun 20th 2009 11:11AM To the first commenter, Washington DC, not NYC. Lots of parks and the rooftop garden at the very same hotel. If the bees don't find enough nectar for their needs they will swarm and find a place on their own.
To the second poster, keeping bees is not any more dangerous to customers than them walking down the street. The bees are kept outside, there would be no way to determine if the bee in question came from the hotel's hives.
For my own comment, the italian bees make excellent honey, but they are mean little buggers. Territorial, like to stay close to the hive if enough nectar is available, but they don't swarm over a victim like the "killer" bees.
