So its ok to take away the reproductive organs for your benefit but nothing else on an animal???. Because YOU deem it ok. And its for your convience?? Yet im a monster b/c I like the looks of a docked tail? Docked ears? A quiet dog? Hypocrites.
There are many health reasons for docking tails and ears on many different working types of dogs. Do some homework. Its working types and sporting types.
Same way with horses. And yes tthe amish and menonites have docked work horses. Perhaps there are exceptions as there is in all aspects.
As for debarking. Its becoming a common practice because so many are now living in cities and suburbs and neighborhoods. It causes no harm at all to the animal. They still bark to their hearts content, they are happy. The owners and neighbors are happy. Its a win win. Don't condemn something till you know all the facts. And not just looking at things through emotional and narrow minded viewpoints.
As for being in merry ol england. Well I aint there. Got no desire to ever even visit. And this country broke away to have its freedoms it has now. Hopefully we are able to keep enjoying these freedoms till GOD sees fit to end it all.
