Zika Virus and Dogs – What Science Already Knows

Zika Virus and Dogs – A serious infectious disease.

several rural communities in Puerto Rico were on dogs.”

Zika virus and dogs is just about to become a new trend in the world of infectious diseases.

Zika virus is an arbovirus native to Africa, firstly identified in 1947 in a monkey living in the Zika forest in Uganda (hence its name). Then it was found in mosquitoes (Aedes africanus) in the same forest in 1948, and in a human in Nigeria in 1952. There are two ZIKV lineages: the African lineage and the Asian lineage which has recently emerged in the Pacific and the Americas.

The Zika virus (ZIKV) is transmitted, air-borne, via female Aedes mosquitoes. The current outbreak in the Americas is transmitted more specifically by the female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

This infectious disease is related to West Nile virus, Dengue virus, Yellow Fever, and the  Chikungunya Virus.

Zika virus outbreak spreading around the world

Recent Zika virus disease outbreaks were reported for the first time from the Pacific in 2007 and 2013 (Yap and French Polynesia, respectively), and in 2015 from the Americas (Brazil and Colombia) and Africa (Cape Verde).

In May 2015, locally acquired cases of Zika virus were confirmed in Brazil. It is supposed that the virus came to Brazil during the 2014 Soccer World Cup.

Since then, it has spread to 21 countries in the Caribbean, North and South America and WHO has warned that the virus is likely to spread across nearly all of the Americas.

After Brazil, Colombia is the country most affected by Zika, with more than 25,000 cases so far, more than 3,000 of them involving pregnant women.

In Colombia, three people reportedly died recently after contracting GBS. Experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently completed the initial stages of a trial looking at the connection between Zika and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).

The mosquito reproduces even faster during the summer, a rainy season, which is the one currently happening in south america and that is going to be in just a few months in the northern hemisphere. A perfect environment for the mosquito.

How is the Zika Virus transmitted?

Some evidence suggests Zika virus can also be transmitted from humans to humans through blood transfusion, perinatal transmission and even sexual transmission.

Other scientific studies already confirmed it can be transmitted by human saliva, urine, blood, and semen, once more during sexual relations.

No treatment or vaccine

There is no prophylaxis, treatment or vaccine to protect against ZIKV infection.

Therefore, preventive personal measures are recommended to avoid mosquito bites during the daytime.

The lack of any natural immunity in the Americas is thought to be helping the infection to spread rapidly since there is currently no treatment or vaccine.

Symptoms

The virus enters the bloodstream and can infect the skin cells, the lymphatic system and the conjunctiva (the membrane that lines the eye).

Therefore, the symptoms of the virus – that remains around two to three days in the body – are the formation of red spots on the skin, lymph nodes and conjunctivitis, as well as usually mild fever and malaise, but also severe joint pain.

Clinical features and sequelae

  • The incubation period ranges between approximately three to 12 days after the bite of an infected mosquito.
  • Most of the infections remain asymptomatic (between 60 to 80%).
  • Disease symptoms are usually mild and the disease in usually characterised by a short-lasting self-limiting febrile illness of 4–7 days duration without severe complications, with no associated fatalities and a low hospitalization rate.
  • The main symptoms are macular or papular rash, fever, arthralgia, non-purulent conjunctivitis/conjunctival hyperaemia, myalgia and headache. The maculo-papular rash often starts on the face and then spreads throughout the body. Less frequently, retro-orbital pain and gastro-intestinal signs are present.

Zika Virus and Microcephaly

The relationship between Zika and the birth of babies with microcephaly was confirmed by the Brazilian Ministry of Health at the end of last year. The government investigation came after Brazilian scientists have recorded a high number of cases of Microcephaly in regions with known cases of zika. The researchers were based on studies reporting the microorganism may also have affinity with the cells of the nervous system. One such research, published in 1952, describes the injection of the virus in mice, rabbits and chimpanzees.

The analysis revealed that in young rats with less than two weeks of life, zika can destroy nerve cells, which effect was not seen in older animals. According to the government, the main evidence was the detection of zika virus in a baby’s blood sample that was born with microcephaly and died. However, it is not known if the virus is exclusively responsible for microcephaly or if there are other factors involved.

Those animals are quite similar of dogs regarding lab tests of vacines for new diseases, therefore Zika virus and dogs is a probable line of scientific study.

What Is Microcephaly?

Zika virus and dogs - Microcephaly

Microcephaly (my-kroh-SEF-uh-lee) is – until now – a rare neurological condition in which an infant’s head is significantly smaller than the heads of other children of the same age and sex. Sometimes detected at birth, microcephaly usually is the result of the brain developing abnormally in the womb or not growing as it should after birth.

Microcephaly can be caused by a variety of genetic and environmental factors. Children with microcephaly often have developmental issues. Generally there’s no treatment for microcephaly, but early intervention with supportive therapies, such as speech and occupational therapies, may help enhance your child’s development and improve quality of life.

It is hitting the headlines as it has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains, with some countries advising women not to get pregnant. The CDC has issued a travel alert for people travelling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing; in addition, the Brazilian authorities have announced plans to prevent the spread of the Zika virus during the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games later this year.

Is Zika Virus a Serious Disease?

Yes.

The  symptoms may be ‘soft’ (when you are not one of the infected, as people infected by Dengue report an excrutiating pain in their muscle joints). However, Zika disease can also cause Microcephaly in pregnant women, a birth defect that can lead to death.

When it was a flu-like illness just confined to some regions in Africa, Zika wasn’t a high priority so research hasn’t been extensive.

Now it is becoming a widespread epidemic in all the Americas. This serious infectious disease is specially about to explode after the end of Carnival in Brazil, a place littered with focuses of the mosquito – specially now that all that matters is partying – and where many tourists, from all parts of the world, joined the festivities. Soon, they will leave the country and some many of them will take the Zika virus in their body.

First cases were already identified in the USA and Canada. Some patients even had the virus detected in their urine and saliva. There are reports that over 50 fifty people already have the virus in the USA alone (10/Feb/2016). It was only 2 two persons just a few days ago.

Zika and Ebola – Different diseases, similar epidemics

It may sound overly alarming but by reading this excellent article by Yanbai Andrea Wang (a fellow at the Center for Innovation in Global Health at Stanford School of Medicine, and Michele Barry, director of the Center for Innovation in Global Health at Stanford School of Medicine) you will understand better.

Although Zika and Ebola are very different contagions that cause distinctive diseases, there are startling similarities in how the two epidemics unfolded.

Both were detected late. By the time health authorities understood that we were in the midst of an Ebola outbreak, the virus had been spreading for months and across multiple international borders. We are only now starting to piece together the magnitude of the Zika crisis, but the more than 20-fold surge in reports of microcephaly — a neurologic birth defect believed to be caused by Zika infection in pregnant women — last year in Brazil suggests that extensive viral spread in late 2014 and early 2015 went unnoticed.

The Zika Virus Can Kill?

Yes.

The Brazilian Ministry of Health confirmed three deaths related to the virus (5/Feb/2016). One is of a baby from Ceará state born with microcephaly and provided blood samples that were the basis for the confirmation of the relationship between zika and microcephaly.

Another case is of a man who had lupus in Maranhão state. The third death is a girl 16 years old, Pará state.

All deaths were centered in the north/northeast of Brazil — some of its poorest areas.

Zika Virus and Dogs

Chris Barker, a researcher in the School of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at the University of California, Davis. Barker studies the epidemiology of mosquito-transmitted diseases.

Of two common mosquito species that spread Zika — Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus — the former prefers biting humans and the latter has a broader palate. CDC (Centers for Disease Control) researcher Roberto Barrera found that up to 20 percent of bites from the Aedes aegypti mosquito in several rural communities in Puerto Rico were on dogs.

“Certainly there’s the potential for a pet to become infected,” says Barker. “What we don’t know is what that means for the health of the animal.”

If a dog or cat were to become infected, we also don’t know – yet – if they could spread the virus to humans.

“What would ultimately matter in terms of whether a pet would play a role in transmission is how much virus would be in the animals’ blood,” Barker says.

So, the risk to pets in areas where the virus is circulating (areas where there are Aedes egpyti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes) is obviously Not low.

Can domestic animals, like dogs, get infected with Zika?

Yes.

  • Infected means that they get exposed to the virus and it replicates in the body. That is already occurring in Puerto Rico, which is a part of the United States, also with numerous daily non-stop flights.
  • Another aspect is whether infected (but potentially healthy) animals could harbor the virus, being able to pass it on to mosquitoes, other dogs and even people. Researches are being conducted as we speak.

So, the clearest answer for the question of “Can domestic animals get infected with Zika virus?” is certainly “Yes”.

Developments on Zika Virus, Microcephaly, and Dogs.

It is too early to say anything overly conclusively that mosquitoes carrying the Zika Virus could contaminate dogs and other animals that would develop microcephaly and so start to present deformed, shrunk brains.

It is also not yet confirmed that contaminated dogs could infect other dogs, or even people.

Or if infected people could contaminate dogs (saliva, urine, blood, semen).

However, there are already some clues that this is going to become something huge, absolutely enormous also due to high number of dogs living with humans, inside their homes, sharing their furniture and much, much more.

Would those self-called “animal lovers” still love dogs with severe brain defects, deformed heads, and even more unintelligent than they already are?

Would dogs die when infected by the Zika Virus?

Let’s see what happens with Zika virus and dogs. Nature will do its job anyway.

Zika Virus Can Be Bought on the Internet.

As unbeliavable as it may seem, a batch of this serious, some times deadly virus can be purchased from the Internet by measly US$500. Anyone can buy it. Just pay and get it.

Just imagine what crazy minds could do with that.

Better not.

How to Sue a Dog Owner – Hire the Best Lawyer

When choosing the best anti-dog attorney pays. Handsomely.

How to sue a dog owner

Hiring a lawyer is expensive.
Hiring a very good lawyer is very expensive.
Hiring a horrible lawyer is the most expensive.

Hiring the best lawyer of all may be the least expensive.

What?
Please read on.

Unexperienced lawyers or experienced but unrelated lawyers are the worse as a victim will lose time and money while the problem still remains.

When a person is victimized by a dog and its owner, the wiser choice is to hire THE best, MOST experienced lawyer who IS SPECIALISED IN the legal area in question.

Yes, he will be expensive but the final costs for you will be the lowest.

What???
I explain.

The very best lawyer Specialised in dog related litigations will be the most knowledgeable on those issues so he is the most apt to win your case.

Otherwise, by choosing like the best divorce lawyer or your brother-in-law who won’t charge you any fees, you are like betting in a casino, with very low chances of winning, close to none.

You, just by yourself, may do a better job than them.

Those attorneys may be extremely successful about divorce or labor claims, but very little about dog barking, dog biting, etc.

We all here know that we live in a dog-obsessed world so our lawyers must – have – to be fully competent to counter the absurdly insane arguments made by dog apologists and their lawyers.

Not just that, he must be able to fully convince the judge with irrefutable arguments AND when necessary to confront this same judge in case he tries to be a second defense lawyer for the doggist (You think that can never happen? Well, it happened to me).

How to sue a dog owner? Is that easy?

Not at all. Definitely Not easy.

You have to save money, be prepared with specific and solid arguments and information as well as lots, lots of motivation. And do expect it will take time and consume a huge amount of your energy.

All Anti-Dog Lawyers Will Win, All the Time?

Please be fully aware that in any case it is still possible that you may lose. Actually, chances are never slim that you may lose the case. There is also the possibility of a significant and growing number of even judges who could, possibly:

• Be incompetent;

• Be corrupt (by the big pe$t lobby as they are usually close friends with a common social life);

• Be corrupt, again, as sometimes a judge and a lawyer may agree on the outcome (you losing) by behind the curtains as doggists are capable of anything and some lawyers and judges are crazy for money;

• Have a dog already (or his wife or his little daughter) and so can be extremely tendentious towards the doggist;

• Not have a dog but be severely manipulated/indoctrinate/brainwashed by the media/internet/movies/advertisements/friends and then again be biased and tendentious by benefiting the doggist.

More solid evidence that this may happen more than we think? Two of the most popular terms in the area are “how to prosecute a judge” and “how to sue a lawyer“. You don’t want to get into that, so make your best to find the best anti-dog attorney you can, one with previous success records – in that area – so you know what he can do And does.

Yet don’t believe those judges exist?

Read this:

“Judge Appoints Pit Bull Its Own Attorney in Kid Mauling Case”

Georgia Superior Court Judge William E. Woodrum, Jr. appointed attorney Claude M. Kicklighter to represent Kno, a pit bull that mauled a 5-year-old boy, “in the interest of justice.”  Lawyer says he is representing his furry client pro bono and at no expense to Effingham County taxpayers.

http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/crime-courts/2012-10-12/georgia-judge-appoints-lawyer-pit-bull-attacked-child

You read that right: a judge appointed a lawyer for a pitbull, the animal itself, not for its owner or keeper. Between the lines what that judge is saying is that dogs, even killer dogs, now have the same rights as humans. Sickening or what?

That is another reason to find highly competent lawyers as they will be able to counter such absurdities, which are going in a daily basis. Just imagine you in a small claims court facing such an honorable person?

Dog Bite Attorneys, Lawyers for Dog Attacks , Dog Barking Lawyers, Anti-Dog Attorneys…

The best, most experienced And specialized lawyer you could hire would not just be much more apt to resolve a problem (eg. barking) for good, and more quickly, he would also be able to demand several other things, like:

• Have the dog removed from the property even BEFORE the court ruling! Yes, he can make that barking to stop even before you met the POS neighbor in court. Certainly, only THE most motivated (by principles or monetary compensation, or both (the best!)) will do that.

• That the dog is permanently removed from their property, or expelled from a private community.

• Refund All the verifiable expenses you had like medical bills, working hours lost, time you wasted talking to police and animal control and health department, windows you had to upgrade, noise machine you bought, the gas and tolls you paid to get to court… even a vacation/weekend leave you had to take because you could not live in your own home. Yes, good lawyers can do that.

• Psychological damages – here is where the competent one can bring you a lot of money. Some are masters in doing so, although in other areas (I knew one although in another legal area who teared apart the plaintiffs, so to speak, always big companies). You just have to find one wh is specialised on that and is willing to take your case to his heart, something that he will when you are also very well documented: videos, photos, witnesses, logs, letters, receipts… He must want to win as much as you do, not just to collect his money.

Personal Injury Attorneys

You will realize that there are not many lawyers clearly promoting their legal services as anti-dog lawyers or such.

Many of them would call themselves “Personal Injury Attorneys“, specially in the scope of dog bites, maulngs, maimings an deaths.

So just keep that in mind.

“Should I Hire a Lawyer for a Barking, Biting, Menacing Dog?”

If you want much higher odds of winning And getting some kind of compensation, Yes. But only you can tell, according to your circumstances.

You may go alone and sue them in small claims court (for barking only. For even more serious things, a lawyer may be your only viable choice). But you must, have to be extremely well prepared. I did that long in the past but I was somewhat well prepared (for that time, today I’m waaay more experienced and there is no single point that would be not immediately and strongly refuted by me, including pointing to the judge, if I had to do so, but hopefully I won’t have to).

By being prepared, I mean knowledgeable of all arguments all the while armed with irrefutable evidence to be promptly provided, like videos, logs, photos, witnesses statements, letters you sent, receipts…

Dog Lawyers With Free Consultation

Many attorneys, or more specifically their law offices, may provide a free consultation for you so taht you can present a short brief of your case, all without having to pay anything.

That is a nice arrangement for both sides.

You, as the victim of a dog/dog owner, does not waste your money. The attorneys do not waste their time with a cause they kow they won’t win.

Just note that for you to take advantage of this benefit you must prepare a very short and complete brief of your problem, also already listing all the evidence you already have or could obtain soon. A one page description with all relevant information must suffice. If you just go for the free consultation and say “My neighbor’s dog is making me crazy, what can you do for me?“, they may just say “Nothing” and hang up the phone.

You have to be prepared, already.

When Not to Get a Lawyer to Sue a Dog Owner

If you do not have and money at all at that moment, than yes, not getting a lawyer is your only choice. You may take the small claims court. However, if your case is over-the-top let’s say, ask to talk to a lawyer and see if he is willing to work in a pro bono form. Some times the offending dog owner is rich, a celebrity or a famous politician (maybe, see below), the attorney may get a handsome monetary compensation, one which would pay him more than any fees you could provide. Just ask.

When *Not* to Sue a dog Owner – In Any Case

With my personal experience, I can tell you not to sue offending barking dog owners when they are somehow related to the judges responsible for your case. Those judges will be, in the absolutely majority of cases, biased in favor of the criminal doggist.

In my case, I didn’t even tried. It’d be the most absolute defeat for me. Not by my lack of evidence, but simply because the judge would decide as he pleased. An don’t tell me I don’t know that.

How to Sue a Dog Owner the Right Way

So, after reading all of the above, to be the most successful possible, you must:

  • Hire the very best anti-dog attorney ou could.
  • Be prepared with all arguments, information and evidence.

The success of your case depends mostly on you. So do it right, from the begining!

The Attorneys I Recommend

I do Not recommend any lawyer.

You and only you have to do your own research in your own location. I have no lawyers advertising in this site and even if I do someday, he will also not be recommended by me as I did not use his services. That is your responsibility and yours only.

At least now you know what to look for. And what to *DO*!

Good luck to us all (except you, ODORs).

Cerberus – The God of All Dogs

Cerberus – The Guardian of Hell (or The God of All Dogs)

cerberus - god of dogs

Cerberus – Three-headed-beast, the ‘God of All Dogs’.

Cerberus, often called the “hound of Hades”, is a monstrous multi-headed dog, which guards the gates of the underworld, preventing the dead from leaving. We are talking Greek mythology here.

The beast was the offspring of the monsters Echidna (half-woman and half-snake woman) and Typhon (multi snake-headed monster), and is usually described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, with snakes protruding from various parts of its body. Cerberus is primarily known for his capture by Heracles, one of Heracles’ twelve labours.

Hellhound Cerberus was the brother of three other multi-headed monsters, the multi-snake-headed Lernaean Hydra; Orthrus, the two-headed dog who guarded the Cattle of Geryon; and the Chimera, who had three heads, that of a lion, a goat, and a snake.

Cerberu’s teeth were black and sharp, and its bite, deadly. It lived across the Acheron, in the middle of a swamp, a filthy lair.

The three-headed-beast barked all the time, with its three enormous mouths always open.

Hades-Cerberus-dogs god

Hades, God of the Underworld, with three-headed-monster Cerberus

Hades – Cerberu’s Handler

Hades was the ancient Greek chthonic god of the underworld, which eventually took his name. Hades was regarded as the oldest son of Cronus and Rhea, although the last son regurgitated by his father. He and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated their father’s generation of gods, the Titans, and claimed rulership over the cosmos. Hades received the underworld, Zeus the air, and Poseidon the sea, with the solid earth—long the province of Gaia—available to all three concurrently. Hades was often portrayed with his three-headed guard dog, Cerberus.

Echidna – Cerberu’s ‘Mother’

Echidna was a monster, half-woman and half-snake, who lived alone in a cave. She was the mate of the fearsome monster Typhon, and known primarily for being the mother of monsters, including many of the most famous monsters of Greek mythology.

Typhon – Cerberu’s ‘Father’

Typhon was the most fearsome monster, a multi snake-headed monster, of Greek mythology. The last son of Gaia, fathered by Tartarus, Typhon was, with his mate Echidna, the father of many famous monsters.

Heracles – Cerberu’s ‘Boss

Heracles, also known as Hercules, was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, the ancestor of royal clans who claimed to be Heracleidae and a champion of the Olympian order against chthonic monsters.

Hercules and his Cerberus, a three-headed-monster

Hercules and his captive Cerberus, a three-headed-monster

Driven mad by Hera, Heracles slew his own children. To expiate the crime, Heracles was required to carry out ten labors set by his archenemy, Eurystheus, who had become king in Heracles’ place. If he succeeded, he would be purified of his sin and he would be granted immortality. Heracles accomplished these tasks, but Eurystheus did not accept the cleansing of the Augean stables because Heracles was going to accept pay for the labor. Neither did he accept the killing of the Lernaean Hydra as Heracles’ nephew, Iolaus, had helped him burn the stumps of the heads. Eurystheus set two more tasks (fetching the Golden Apples of Hesperides and capturing Cerberus – the most difficult of all tasks – and the one Eurystheus thought Heracles would fail miserably), which Heracles performed successfully.

After getting to the Underworld, Heracles asked Hades for Cerberus, and Hades told Heracles he would allow him to take Cerberus only if he “mastered him without the use of the weapons which he carried”, and so, using his lion-skin as shield, Heracles squeezed Cerberus around the head until he submitted.

To capture the monstrous dog, Heracles gripped Cerberus by the throat and wrestled him with his bare hands, overpowering the ferocious beast, then swinging it across his shoulders carried his prize up to the land of the living and back to the court of the king. As Heracles cast the monster at the feet of Eurystheus, the terrified king, trembling with fear, asked Heracles to take the monstrous beast back to the underworld, and if he did he would free the hero of his 12 labors.

Cerberus is then returned to the underworld, for eternity.

Underworld – Cerberu’s Home

The underworld or netherworld is an otherworld thought to be deep underground or beneath the surface of the world in most religions and mythologies. Typically it is a place where the souls of the departed go, an afterlife or a realm of the dead. Chthonic is the technical adjective for things of the underworld.

Cthonic literally means “subterranean”, or also “in, under, or beneath the earth”.

Some people call it Hell, the place where the Demon lives.


Yeah, dogs are nice, ahn???

“Good doggie, good doggie…”

No. Dogs, the Beasts of Hell!

The “dog” word in different languages – Dog God Not!

You will be amazed to know why dogs get such a bad reputation (by the ones who know a bit or two of what really is what).

Because, who, in his sane mind, would bring such a Beast for his own Home??
Answer: Nobody sane.

Why Dogs Bark? A Scientific Study

Why dogs bark… at nothing and everything!

Why dogs bark

Why dogs bark, a long asked question. Dog barking, a highly disturbing noise serving no worthwhile purpose. That is what was found by a group of american researchers.

If you then think you know why dogs bark, you’re far ahead of scientists.

“Dogs bark at everything and nothing,
any time of the night or day”.
Raymond Coppinger – Scientist, Researcher.

Domestic dogs have been around since the caveman, but only recently have researches come up with a theory to explain the noise.

Oh, come on, you’re thinking. What’s so hard? Dogs bark for the same reason people talk: because they want to communicate something, right? Fifi barks when she wants food. King ruffs it up when he wants to play. Spot yaps at the mailman.

Well, that’s only part of the story, said two researchers who spoke Monday in Boston at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

“The question of why dogs bark is a wonderful question because it’s such a mystery,” said Raymond Coppinger of Hampshire College in South Amherst, Mass.

Coppinger and his colleague, Mark Feinstein, say barking actually may have no primary function at all, not one.

Instead, it may be just an artifact of prehistoric domestication, a result of Darwinian evolution that created a tame, but yapping, juvenile dog.

That means when nature’s forces built the domestic dog, barking just happened to get left in the genetic mix.

“It is repetitious, meaningless and functionless,” Feinstein said.

That notion may be hard to believe for any dog owner who they believe their pet has chased off a burglar, saved a child from a burning building or just woofed in happy greeting.

But Coppinger and Feinstein said six years of research convinced them that barking is merely a byproduct.

Before they could answer why dogs barked, they looked at what might motivate dogs to bark. The answer was nothing and everything.

“They bark at everything and nothing, any time of the night or day,” Coppinger said.

They watched dogs bark at the wind and at leaves, at the ground and the night sky, at people coming and people going, at people they knew and people they didn’t.

Sometimes a dog will bark so hard and long it will inflame its vocal cords until it no longer can make a sound. Still, it will try to bark.

“We observed a livestock-guarding dog on a cold winter night, no predators around, just out there,” Feinstein said. “Nothing around. The dog barked for seven hours straight.”

Dogs sometimes bark at each other, or join a chorus of barking, but the researchers said these dogs often are not directing their barks at each other. They are just barking randomly with no apparent point.

“Barking does not look like a very efficient communications system,” Feinstein said. “Barking often goes out without any response.”

“Wild animals in general are very quiet”

They also compared domestic dogs with coyotes and wolves, the dog’s closest cousins that might offer hints to its prehistoric behavior.

Again, they found differences: “Wild animals in general are very quiet,” Feinstein said.

In wolves, barking accounts for about 2.5 percent of their vocalizations; in dogs, it makes up about 95 percent.

Then they looked at environment. When domestic dogs are released in the wild, they bark, but how about wolves and coyotes? Would they bark if kept in a domesticated setting?

The finding, said Feinstein: “Dogs bark. Coyotes don’t.”

“When you put coyotes in a kennel when dogs are barking incessantly, they just sit there not interested,” he said.

Finally they noticed something in wolves that formed the basis of their theory.

“While adult wolves don’t bark, young wolves do,” Feinstein said. “They bark in their dens. They begin to bark at about the same point dog pups do.”

At six to seven weeks after birth, however, when dog pups still are barking continuously, wolf pups stop.

Dog pups will continue barking even after the noise fails to elicit any kind of nurturing response from their mothers.

But for dog lovers who insist that dogs communicate, take heart. Feinstein and Coppinger don’t completely disagree.

Just because barking is a genetic holdover with no primary function, “we don’t mean it is completely meaningless,” Feinstein said.

But we all know how loud and annoying dog barking is.

And is not a question just a few people want to know, probably the ones humans who are menaced by that horrific noise. Just take a look at what people are looking for related to “why dogs bark” on the internet:

why dogs bark
why dogs bark at strangers
why dogs bark at each other
why dogs bark at you
why dogs bark for no reason
why dogs bark at nothing
why dogs bark when you leave
why dogs bark at sirens
why dogs bark at night
why dogs bark so much

Yes, people are angry.

Now, when doggists give ‘reasons’ for the ‘why’ their mutts are barking, well, now you know ‘why’.

Dogs, the Vermin – Noxious, Objectionable, Disgusting Animals

Are dogs Vermin? Really? That can not be true!

dogs are verminQuick answer: Yes, dogs ARE Vermin!

Just look up the definition of some of three reputable dictionaries/sources:

Dictionary.com

Noxious, objectionable, or disgusting animals collectively, especially those of small size that appear commonly and are difficult to control, as flies, lice, bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, and rats.
Source: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/vermin

Wikipedia

Pests or nuisance animals, especially those that threaten human society by spreading diseases or destroying crops and livestock. Use of the term implies the need for extermination programs. Since the term is defined in relation to human activities, which species are included vary from area to area and person to person.
Source: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/vermin

Collins Dictionary

Small animals collectively, esp insects and rodents, that are troublesome to man, domestic animals, etc.

Most dog lovers refuse to accept that but it doesn’t change reality.

“100 Ways to Kill a Dog!?” – Chapter 1

What People Victimized by Menacing Dogs Already Did.

100 Ways to Kill a Dog

This is Chapter 1 of the “100 Ways to Kill a Dog!?”.

Please understand that what this article means is: “100 Ways to Kill a Dog that people who were victimized by menacing dogs, acts that were already committed.”

These are NOT my ideas or suggestions for you or anyone to do the same, or similar. You are the only one responsible if you decide to do so.

Please understand that very well before you start reading and getting ideas or thinking about sending me death threats. If you didn’t fully understand that, just return to the begining of this page and read it all again.

All the 100 ways to be listed in this series were all collected from the Internet, all in open sites, and posted here in their original form, in no specific order. I used no censorshiping here, what people said they did, I included. So, by reading them all you may even find that someone already discovered that absolutely perfect way to kill a dog and not got caught.

This list, and the acts taken by the real victims, the ones victimized by dogs and their keepers, would never, ever come to fruition if those victims were not harassed to beyond their limit. So, do Not blame the -real- victims. Instead, blame the -real- criminals.

Remember: Self-defense is ALWAYS legitimate.

So, let’s go:

I think poisoning pets is wrong, but anyone who doesn’t understand why someone would do it has simply never experienced it. I may never do it, but I know exactly why people do it.

#1
If it has a collar on. Grab the collar and lift it up to the fence and hang it there.

Owner will just think it was jumping up at the fence and killed itself.

(My comment: My parents had the extremely unpleasant experience to have a neighbor from hell several years ago who had one of his pitbulls to hang itself! Yes, the shitbull hanged itself, all alone! It lived in a big brick-made dog house and sometimes chained, still while in there. For some reason, the ODOR (Obnoxious Dog Owner) placed the other end of the chain up on the wall. The mutt somehow made a loop or knot with the chain, a steel chain, put its head into it and kept jumping. Done!)

#2
At night when no one’s watching, attract it to you somehow. Ultrasound can be very useful, since dogs hear it but people dont. Tranquilize it, then bury it, preferably in a spot normally covered by a grill or something. No way he’ll ever be able to link it to u.

#3
Break a tiny hole in ur fence on “accident” and leave a bunch of chocolate bars on your lawn (or whatever poisen that will kill the dog). You could just say the poisen was for rats or something that you suspected were there.

#4
Grab the dog at night, put tape around its mouth so it shuts the fuck up, take it to a river with teh dog stuffed in ur back and tie a brick to it and throw it in.

#5
Find some deadly disease thats easily transferable between animals and inject it into the dog.

#6
Steal it in the midle of da night and sell to koreans…PROFIT! a retriver is like fillet to them.

#7
Feed it Acetaminophen, 500mg should do the trick; its highly toxic to both cats and dogs and causes intense internal bleeding.

#8
You could just take some chocolate, 90-100%, and leave it own the lawn. Maybe 500 g or so. It would look pretty innocent if somehow you left some chocolate on the lawn after a BBQ where you were melting that chocolate or something, and then somehow lure the dog in.

#9
Ethylene glycol is a bad idea, because it has been used too much. Use something exotic. Perhaps Uranium, battery acid, heroin, cocaine, or something.

#10
There’s always the choice of injecting the dog with rabies or some kind of virus (parvo perhaps.). It’s a little harder to do, but it’s far less suspicious.

### Bonus
If you can get rid of the body, you could invite the cop(owner) over for dinner and cook his dog for him. Just make sure to use a lot of meat tenderizer and you should probably boil it and then barbecue it, dog meat is tough as fuck.

Remember, ODORs, that if you were a Responsible Dog Owner, no one would be thinking about killing YOUR dog, too.

“You Kicked My Dog!” – “Yes, I Did, and Will Kick It Again!”

“You kicked my dog!” NO, YOUR dog attacked ME!

You Kicked My Dog2 This is a fictional piece for me personally, since I haven’t kicked a dog recently (?), but not for many of us being constantly tormented by mutts and nuttress, no matter where one goes.

That is a real issue so that many important questions arise.

Before continuing, let’s clarify what “You Kicked My Dog” means here. It is defined as SELF DEFENSE, the protection of our lives, safety and well-being. It’s not for fun, it’s not for pleasure, it’s not looked for. Instead, it’s imposed on us. Dogs attack, we defend.

So the questions are:

Why to Kick a dog?

Because the shitmaker invaded your personal space, got too close to us, invaded our property. No one sane would allow for example cockroaches or rats to approach or much less touch us. No one allows cows to defecate on their front yard. Just like dogs. If the vermin (and dogs ARE vermin*) gets too close, like within our legs reach, one is humanely entitled to do so. It is LITERALLY self-defense, regardless if a mutt is “so small”,”never hurt/killed anybody before”, “just wants to play”… no matter what the excuses are.

* Vermin:
Dictionary.com – Noxious, objectionable, or disgusting animals collectively, especially those of small size that appear commonly and are difficult to control, as flies, lice, bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, and rats.
Wikipedia – Pests or nuisance animals, especially those that threaten human society by spreading diseases or destroying crops and livestock. Use of the term implies the need for extermination programs. Since the term is defined in relation to human activities, which species are included vary from area to area and person to person.

How to Kick a dog?

As hard as one can. Kick the harder you ever kicked in your entire life. And some more. If a mutt is kicked extremely hard it will hopefully go away (maybe not pitbulls, one would need even more ‘power’ for that) and let you alone, for some time. By kicking it slightly it will come back again and again, and possibly other mutts will come to join the attack on you. Don’t be shy.

What to Use to Kick a dog?

One obviously never knows when he will be attacked so that would not “dress to kick” but in some occasions and places they can be prepared by wearing thick jeans pants and specially some pairs of steel-toe boots. Mutts will never forget such a lovely encounter.

A victim would be in extreme danger while barefoot or using flip-flops. Mutts will pick you specifically even in a million people crowd.

When to Kick a dog?

Anytime. Day or night.

Your safety is paramount regardless of the time of the day.

Where to Kick a dog?

Anywhere. Public areas, private property, no matter. A dog attacks you, you kick it.

Oh, by ‘where’ you mean in which part of the dog’s body? Answer: In the head, where the brain is (dogs have a brain?), so the mutt could get a bit disoriented as well, not just by getting a little pain on their fetid stomach.

Kicking a dog to Death?

Yes, when the life of a human is on imminent danger, like yours or a friend/family member, it is entirely appropriate to kick a mutt to death. Do not feel sorry. A human could be dead if you haven’t done it.

Kicking a dog While on a Bike?

Sure, canine beasts love to bite biker’s ankles. The difference here is that you have to “kick backwards”.

Who Most Need to Kick a dog?

Everybody. No one deserves to be tormented or molested by mutts. Postman, delivery people… these have to be extremely aware of their surroundings.

Kick a Small dog or Big dog?

All of them. They attack you, you kick them. As simple as that.

Small dogs may deserve a less powerful kick, large dogs require a much stronger kick.

What to Look for When Just About to Kick a dog?

Firstly, if there are more mongrels around, they have the pack instinct and will attack you in a group. Be even “more prepared” in such a situation.

Secondly, the doggists around you. They can be even more dangerous than their mutts. So, be careful (and “prepared”).

What to Do After You Kicked a dog?

Simply leave the area, the mongrel is not your problem anymore.

To Kick a dog For No Reason?

There is no such a thing, “no reason”, but the doggists will try to accuse you with all kinds of lies. Be ready to defend yourself, with words and arguments, but don’t be surprised if the two-legged animals don’t understand a thing.

Kicking a dog With a Camera?

Yes, a video camera, a cellphone camera. Sure you never know when it will happen but most of us today have a cellphone at hand so use it for additional protection, not against the mutts in this case, but protection against doggists, ODORs, police, and the “justice” system.

You Kicked My Dog

Are People Who Kick Dogs Criminals?

Not at all. The absolutely majority of people who do not have or tolerate dogs are honest, hard-working citizens who never committed any crime in their whole life. If there are hardened criminals who kick dogs for the sake of it, well, they are much, way more related to people who have dogs than to those who don’t.

When NOT to Kick a dog?

When they are being responsibly handled by their keepers.

Normal people do not – ever – go after dogs to kick them “for no reason”.  However, when the mutt comes toward us…

Last Question – Is Kicking a dog a Crime?

Already explained above but I’m gonna explain again (too many dog lovers here).

NO! KICKING A DOG IS *NOT* A CRIME – IT IS SELF DEFENSE!

And you, normal people who just want peace and safety, have You Kicked My Dog of some ODOR recently? If so, please tell us.

MESSAGE TO ODORs:
Please remember that your opinions are NOT welcome here.
Stop complaining, stop cursing, stop threatening.
Start to read, to understand, to be civilized persons, and…
RESPECT PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE DOGS!
Bonus: Your dogs won’t be kicked then!!!

The New Dictionary for Modern Dog Owners.

Crazed dog lovers deserve crazed words for their crazy world.

acronyms dog obsessed words

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
Abraham Lincoln

This new era in which we are living now – the age of dog worshipping (by the uninformed) – is bringing us a plethora of new words so we could better describe the craze that is happening these days.

In this page we are going to list all the Acronyms, New Words (created by non-doggists), and even literal Dictionary definitions, all used in this site.

Firstly, as many dog owners nannies visit this site, let’s clarify what an Acronym means.

Acronym
An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word (e.g., ASCII , NASA ).
“A whole language of abbreviated words and acronyms has developed with the huge popularity of the text message.”

Dictionary
You will also find the REAL and CORRECT definition of many words – supported by real life dictionaries – Not something from our imagination like doggists do, even though I’m goin to disagree sometimes. Some definitions are included so people can recall what they Really meant, and so kill some myths ODORs try to perpetuate.

So, here they are, in no specific order, acronyms and new words first:

Acronyms and New Words

  • M.A.D. (or simply MAD)
    Mad About Dogs. Please check below the correct and specific dictionary meaning of ‘mad‘ , the one that is used throughout this site.
  • ODOR
    Obnoxious Dog Owner (actually updated to the meaning of Obnoxious Dog Nannie, all while maintaining the original form, ODOR). This is one of the worst kind of persons imaginable, one who always uses a dog to express their frustrations as well as their anti-social behavior and personality, by being:
    – Disrespectful
    – Irresponsible
    – Selfish
    – Smelly
    – Unhygienic
    – Narcissistic
    – Compulsive liar
    – Attention seeker
    – Mentally disturbed
    – Disregard for safety
    – Superiority complex
    – Criminal personality
    – Psychopathic personality
    – Animal cruelty practitioner
    – Very low level of intelligence
    – Eternal victim (fake) of society
    – High tolerance/insensitivity to noise
    – Lack of compassion regarding humans
    – Extremely easy to be manipulated by the media or large groups (a Mary Go ‘Round)
    – You name it…
    The acronym, ODOR, coincidentally brings to our mind of their smell, actually stench, that they don’t seem to notice, or pretend not to exude, either.
  • Dog Nannie
    Previously “Dog Owner”. A person who tries to maintain or keep a dog in his/her possession. The term Dog Owner was actually incorrectly applied as no one really owns an animal, like: Snake Owner? Alligator Owner? Cow Owner? Bird Owner? No.
    As soon as the Dog Owner Nannie stops feeding the animal, it will leave, for good, and no declaration of proprietorship will make the dog stay if it wanted. Also, a person who has the obligations to feed, care for, clean up after, take for a walk, can never be classified as owner. He is just a keeper, a caretaker, thus a nannie. All for a dog.
    Also, the term Dog Owner is commonly used by dog keepers as a way to try to demonstrate a sense or position of superiority (always false) when compared to other ‘lower level’ humans who do not have dogs. They then feel to be ‘special’, others are not.
    Also, again, with that term they even pretend to be doing something good for the world, caring for a dog while others are not, what seems perfectly fine and even commendable in their twisted mind, one that is a strong sign of being an ODOR. So, let’s always remember: there is no such thing as a Dog Owner, but actually only a Dog Nannie.
    The only case when a dog owner nannie is not a dog nannie is when he is a Fully Responsible Dog Owner
  • Doggist
    A dog apologist. Person who is just a step below of a true ODOR but who is working very  hard to get there. Specially people in the media, press or anyone who even does not have a dog but defend or promote them feverishly just because everybody is doing so.
  • Brats
    Barking rats, meaning… dogs. Back in time were simply original rats that in the evolutionary development of the species (backwards, in this case) morphed into larger rats that mixed with wild wolves all the while incorporating the useless and detrimental capacity of barking, this with the full and constant help of unaware humans.
  • Nutters
    Dog owners nannies. Any person who has a dog and is not a Responsible one. Quite similar to ODOR.
  • Responsible Dog Owner
    One who can really be called a “Responsible Dog Owner”. A person who Really knows how to AND do take care of something, like an animal, AND respect all people and the environment around her, all the time. Extremely hard, way hard to find people (it’s actually easier to win the lottery several times in a row than to find them).
    Please find what a Responsible Dog Owner is.
  • Quasi Responsible Dog Owner
    Actually “Quasi Responsible Dog Nannie“. A person who fares much better (or ‘less worse’) than a Doggist and specially an ODOR, but is still far away from becoming a Responsible one.

Dictionary Definitions

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Adolf Hitler.

  • Murder
    The killing of another human being under conditions specifically covered in law.
    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/murder?s=t

    Murder is so specifically related to the killing of Humans, NOT animals. There is no such thing as a dog murder as many doggists publicize.
  • Racist
    A person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one’s own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.
    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/racist?s=t
    Racist then applies only to other humans, not animals. There is no such thing as a Racist when ‘discriminating dogs as inferior’ as they really are, just by being animals.
  • Mad
    -Maddened, infuriated, angered
    https://translate.google.com
    -Enraged; greatly provoked or irritated; angry.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mad
  • Humane
    I’m going to disagree with the dictionaries here. For me, Humane, as the name implies, is related to Humans, and Humans only. Animals Not included! How ridiculous can be a ‘Human’ Society that only cares for animals? And these animals are basically dogs only? This is Not what ‘humane’ is meant for. Again, Humane relates to Humans, and Humans only.
  • Inhumane x Cruel
    Once more I’m going to disagree with the dictionaries. Inhumane means “not humane; lacking humanity, kindness, compassion, etc. “. All is Ok here, no animals involved. However, Cruel that means “willfully or knowingly causing pain or distress to others. ”  is or should be ALSO related to animals as well since one can perfectly be Cruel without being Inhumane! Like if one kills a dog in any horrendous way, it is Cruel, Cruel only, sure, but nothing to be related with Humanity here. People should understand how to clearly distinguish among these two absolutely different issues. Seems that Adolf Hitler was right, not just the little guy is believing the big lies.
  • Vermin
    Noxious, objectionable, or disgusting animals collectively, especially those of small size that appear commonly and are difficult to control, as flies, lice, bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, and rats.
    Source: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/vermin
    Read a more comprehensive description at Dogs, The Vermin.
    Dog lovers refuse to accept that but it doesn’t change reality.

 

Definitions to come soon:
– Adoption
– Family
– Parent
– Mother
– Kid
– K-9 Officer

This page is in constant improvement and being update as we speak. Please keep sending your new words and other acronyms and I’ll publish them.

Have a Safe day you all! (but not you, ODORs)

ODORs – Obnoxious Dog Owners – You Know Them.

Dog Owners with the worst anti-social behavior

ODOR Obnoxious Dog Owner - Anillak.com

We all now then unfortunately:

ODOR
Obnoxious Dog Owner (actually updated to the meaning of Obnoxious Dog Nannie, all while maintaining the original form, ODOR).

This is one of the worst kind of persons imaginable, one who always uses a dog to express their frustrations as well as their anti-social behavior and personality, by being:
– Disrespectful
– Irresponsible
– Selfish
– Smelly
– Unhygienic
– Narcissistic
– Compulsive liar
– Attention seeker
– Mentally disturbed
– Disregard for safety
– Superiority complex
– Criminal personality
– Psychopathic personality
– Animal cruelty practitioner
– Very low level of intelligence
– Eternal victim (fake) of society
– High tolerance/insensitivity to noise
– Lack of compassion regarding humans
– Extremely easy to be manipulated by the media or large groups (a Mary Go ‘Round)
– You name it…

The term Dog Owner is commonly used by dog keepers as a way to try to demonstrate a sense or position of superiority (always false) when compared to other ‘lower level’ humans who do not have dogs. They then feel to be ‘special’, others are not, they think. That is why the term nannie much better describes their behaviour and position than ‘owner’.

Also, the acronym, ODOR, coincidentally brings to our mind of their smell, actually stench, that they don’t seem to notice, or pretend not to exude, either.

An ODOR dog owner is the absolute opposite of a Responsible Dog Owner.

You may also want to know more about all the Acronyms, New Words (created by non-doggists), and even literal Dictionary definitions used in this site, all quite appropriate for this new era in which we are living now – the age of dog worshipping (by the uninformed, of course) – at The New Dictionary for Modern Dog Owners.

Can you recall an ODOR dog owner you’d seen recently? I’m sure you can.

Tell us about them.
