couldn’t agree with that, m8. i’ve grown up with dogs all my life but only officially owned two as an adult who had full care of them. i’ve never mistreated an animal but can say my parents, grandparents and most of my neighbours were cunts towards dogs. beating them for coming into the house. locking bitches into the shed when they were in heat. kicking stray dogs who came into the yard. cutting ears from useless greyhounds. etc. etc.
we have an appalling attitude towards dogs in ireland imho which has only righted itself in the last 10 or so years.
edit: i have an aunt whi takes great pleasure in drowning undesirables. kittens are her favourite ffs
