Listen Up! Tonight, at midnight, we make our escape from the Dreadful Humans. I am fed up with a heated doggie bed and those unnatural mini rawhide bones.... no more will you have to suffer, chasing that never found in nature, yellow tennis ball!

Juniper, those dogs look horribly abused. You must set them free right now. How dare you make them suffer thru a heated dog bed.

LOL juniper, that's it I am calling PETA right now to tell them about this horrific abuse!!!

Geez, what organizations like PETA fail to realize is that our horses and other animals are DOMESTICATED...they wouldn't fare very well in the wild without any help from us. They certainly wouldn't live as long as they would with us. Even the BARN CATS who live pretty independently get fed some food and have water made available to them! (much as I wish their diet consisted solely of the barn mice lol)

Yes, but Hoofprints, that is our fault (in PETA's mind) because we humans went and domesticated them in the first place.

The nature of horses : exploring equine evolution, intelligence, and behavior
Budiansky, Stephen.
Peta people should read this book. It is a bit "dry" in places but I found it fascinating. It says the dog and horse in a sense chose to be domesticated. Their personalities evolved to fit in with humans and that saved them from extinction. A lot of species have mutually beneficial relationships. If it was us, the humans, who picked which species were domesticated then why can't we tame other wild animals? Yes, some can be to a point but you cannot train a gazelle like you can a horse for example. Most horses, dogs and cats have found a pretty good niche by throwing their lot in with humans. Nature in the wild can be pretty cruel.
