  • Crab bait. I’ll take him.😂

    • NOT EVEN A LITTLE HUMOROUS!!!! SICKO!!!! That is a great dog, sick of the Pittie jokes! Some have attitudes…EVERY CHIWEENIE I HAD OR MET WAS WORSE THAN PIT BULLS! Dachshunds…were bred to kill BADGERS!!!! Chihuahuas for herding nipping bulls! All dogs came from wolves, not just Pitties! I have seen Dachshunds pack and attack! Soooooooo, malign ALL wolves/dogs…not just one breed! Our pittie is sweeter than the 17yr and 19+yr old Chiweenies EVER thought of being. RIP My Chiweenies, I will never get that small of a dog again.

      • Yes there are many nasty, aggressive dog breeds in the world but few that are capable of killing humans. A Chihuahua may snap at you everyday of your life but one bad choice by a pitbull will end your life.

        Besides there was no specific breed mentioned. However I will now say that no dachshund owner I ever met got their dog with the intention of intimidating other humans. Unfortunately pit bulls seem to attract a lot of certain kinds of people who enjoy the idea that no one will mess with them because they have a potentially dangerous breed of dog. And thus the old “it’s not the dog. It’s the owner” cliche rationalization turns out to be partcularly true. But not the way they intend it. Makes the dog even more dangerous than its nature makes it.

  • Double speak outside of cheek

    So not a funny statement. Why?

  • unbridled phillistine

    Too many animals are put down (euthanized) for the sins of their fathers! Thing deserves a chance to live. I see these Dairy calves go to the slaughter here in Ferndale, So cute and they do not even get a couple days to live life. You look into those big eyes and you think the guy who slaughters them must be a monster! Poor f-ing critters! So go buy some crab bait, Its not funny and I have worked with people like Gasquet, A sea gull in every pot, eating left overs, Cheap SOB. He means what he says.

    • So the person who slaughters calves must be a monster. Milk production does have its ugly side. You can’t have milk without producing a calf. Half of them are male. It is sad. But then there is no rescue shelter for 2000 pound bulls either. So turning them into something that can feed all those beloved dogs and cats- predators one and all- is the only option. And you should thank the person willing to do it so delicate and sensative you are not faced with reality yourself.

      Unless you are so PETA that you don’t even use composted cow manure for your garden, you are part of the inheritance of humanity that learned to raise animals.

      • unbridled phillistine

        I have done alot of killing in my day and I just do not enjoy it the way I used to. It is a skill to know how to kill humanly. Im only speaking of the difference we feel toward man best friend. All life? Some life? Who is to say what is more valuable? Maybe if a cow would roll over on command you would feel? IDK? Something for other life.

        • That’s good to know. It is a hard job that most farmers don’t enjoy. Sending off the young to be slaughtered. Depressing. For days.

          It was just that person who does the deed is not a monster.

  • I mis-spoke: (ref. ‘Gasquet’ comment; reply)

    There is a moment in your life when you will wish you could depend upon the devotion of whom you refer to as “bait’.

    Remember -> Sebastian…

    (…and it totally explains naming yourself ‘Gasquit’ lol)
