Dog Repellent With… Water Bottles!


Keep those pesky dogs away from your home!

A clever, and unexplainable at least for me, is a trick done by regular folks down in Mexico. The sane people who do not have dogs.

For several decades people in the countryside of Mexico used to place transparent bottles of water on their windows and doors to repel not dogs, but mosquitos.The same ones tat today carry the Zika and Dengue viruses, for example.

It was funny and amusing to see so many water bottles everywhere.

For some reason, or reasons, mosquitos almost never cross the windows or doors where the water bottles were placed. Maybe because they relate that water to rain that could crush them or due to some water physical/chemical characteristics we don’t know about.

Well, some astute observers down there noticed that where they placed those water bottles, the same would happen to those pesky dogs. They wouldn’t come either!

Dogs see the bottles and turn back!

Not just in Mexico but also Italy, Malta, Greece, Brazil, Spain… Dogs are hated anywhere anyway.

How to do it?


Just use any transparent or translucent bottle, PET or glass doesn’t matter, fill it up with tap water, close it, and place where you want to keep those dogs away. Right on the ground. Your front door, back door, near the garden, front gate… anywhere.

You don’t need any additive in the water.

The water bottle must be a few feet from where you want to keep the dog away, 3 or 4 max. It won’t work for a distance of tens of feet or more.

Again, the bottles must be fully closed to avoid the spread of mosquitos.

Will just leaving a full jar of water in the middle of your lawn keep dogs from defecating on it?


This is Not a trick for the wide open lawn! Or any other open large area.

This water bottle trick only works when you place the bottle upstanding along the door frame, for example. And to avoid the dogs crossing that door or gate.

It does not avoid dogs defeating in your lawn after you have thrown a bottle there.

Explanations why it works?

Possible “reasons” for why this works:

  • They relate that water to rain that could crush them or due to some water physical/chemical characteristics we don’t know about.
  • The glinting of the water in the bottles emits some special canine danger signal.
  • Dogs won’t foul a source of drinking water, or they won’t mess where there’s food or water to be found. (of course they would, dogs defecate anywhere)
  • Pooches see their reflections in the water, are disconcerted by them, and run off.
  • The smell roiling off jugs filled with pure bleach or a bleach-and-water combination drives the mutts away.

Myth? Superstition?

Many people will say it is a myth, superstition, April 01st…

Were they dog lovers who would avoid anything ‘bad’ for their mutts? And say anything like… lies?

Try it for yourself. And please let us know how it worked for the pooches in your area. You may be known as the crazy water bottle guy/gal but who cares when the mutts are far away!

Sorry, I’d like to write more but my time is short these days.

The Dog Lovers’ SANATORIUM – Most Stupid Things Dog Owners Say

Most Stupid Things Dog Owners Say – The Doggists’ Sanatorium

Find out the most stupid things dog owners say, and do, ridiculous conversations that you, as a normal person, would only expect to find in a Sanatorium full of incurably sick persons, people of the highest degree of insanity.

stupid things dog owners say

This is Not a joke post, it’s real, all made true by hard-core dog lunatics.

My respect for the real mentally challenged persons

First of all, my utmost respect for the persons who, due to a little but significant mistake made by nature, came to develop some kind of mental illness that impaired them of living a normal life. They didn’t choose to become mentally ill, it was forced upon them and they had no recourse. Again, it was not their choice. This post has nothing to do with them, at all. Once more, my full respect for them, their families, and the real doctors who fight for them to live a better life.

Dog lovers, on the other hand, choose to live an unhealthy, demented life.

Ok, ahead.

What is a Sanatorium?



Sanatoriums – A hospital for the treatment of chronic diseases, as tuberculosis or various nervous or mental disorders.

Psychiatric Hospital

Psychiatric hospitals – Hospitals or wards specializing in the treatment of serious psychiatric diseases, such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Also known as…


Also known as…

Mental hospitals / Psychiatric wards /
Psych wards

Around the world, the words Sanatoriums, Hospices, Psychiatric Hospitals, Psychiatric Wards, Psych Wards, are used to define a place where people with deep mental deficiencies live or are treated. Every country, a different word.

In simpler terms: Sanatoriumwhere crazy people live.

In this article: Sanatoriumwhere crazy DOG OWNERS live. Eg, everywhere.

Crazy dog owners above is used as a pleonasm as all dog owners are intrinsically crazy, unless they are a Responsible dog owner, what is extremely rare.

The Most Stupid Things Dog Owners Say

Moronic, deranged, psychotic, crazed animal, retarded, idiotic, insane, ludicrous, ridiculous, demented, asshole, jackass, oaf, uncultured, delusioned, clumsy, jerks, strange, cuckoo, fruitcake, flacky, wacko, loco, screwball, dangerous, thick, suckers, disturbed, unbalanced, loony, basket case, bonkers, bipolar, nuts, crackers, psycho, mental, maniac, abnormal, crackpot,… well, simply… mentally ill.

It’s not something made up by us non-dog-people, meaning normal people, to denigrate the image of dog people. Even Google is aware of them:

dog owners are idiots dog owners are stupid crazy idiots

Dog owners are idiots.
Some dog owners are idiots. Yeah, just some.


Pitbull dog owners are no exception.

The Most Stupid Things Dog Owners Say – And Do!

So, let’s go.

These are the statements and conversations you would ONLY expect to hear from those demented people but that we are hearing basically anywhere:

“Dogs are people, too!”

“He’s (the dog’s) friendly!!”

“Because Pet Parents Are Moms Too!”

“It’s all about how you raise them…”

“My dogggie never hurt a flie…”

“Biggest baby!”

“All dogs bite!”

“Get educated!”

“PBs (pitbulls) used to be nanny dogs!”

“Blame the deed, not the breed!”

“I wonder what provoked them…”

“How do you know I don’t have a leash in my pocket?”

“My dog won’t like that muzzle!”

“They are dogs! Don’t you know that?!”

“They are my Babies!!!”

“I am a mother of dogs!”

“They are part of the family!”

“My dogs are better behaved than those pesky kids out there!”

Fortunately, sane people still say logical things:

“The dog acts as a projection of the human’s stupid. Stupid people without dogs don’t have such a mobile way of letting others know how moronic they are.”

“It (a dog) does seem to attract a certain kind of stupid, though.”

“They are domesticated disease carrying vermin. “

“Common sense is not so common”
— Voltaire

“You cannot convince a dog lover of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep-seated need to believe”
— Carl Sagan

This is just the first draft of many. Frequent updates to come.

Have you heard something overly stupid a dog owner said to you recently?

Let us know!

(Once again – Not counting this paragraph here, this article so far, the finalised first edition, has exactly 666 words – the number of the Beast – with No adjustments made on my part at all to come at that. Dogs really have something evil in and around them. It’s not just coincidence.)

Anubis – The Egyptian Dog God of the Dead

Anubis, God of the Underworld.

Anubis-dog god of the deadAnubis was an extremely ancient deity whose name appears in the oldest mastabas (meaning “house for eternity” or “eternal house” in Ancient Egyptian) of the Old Kingdom and the Pyramid Texts as a guardian and protector of the dead. We are talking Egyptian Mithology here, one more culture where dogs are related to evil creatures.

It was originally a god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites. His name is from the same root as the word for a royal child, “inpu”. However, it is also closely related to the word “inp” which means “to decay”, and one versions of his name (Inp or Anp) more closely resembles that word. As a result it is possible that his name changed slightly once he was adopted as the son of the King, Osiris. He was known as “Imy-ut” (“He Who is In the Place of Embalming”), “nub-tA-djser” (“lord of the scared land”).

Anubis – The Story of His Birth

The Egyptian mythology states that Anubis was born after Nephthys made Osiris drunk. Without his consent, Nephthys made him drawn into her arms. Then he gave birth to Anubis.

Anubis – The Family

Anubis is believed to be the son of Osiris and Nephthys. His sibling was Horus. The goddess of purification, Kebechet was his daughter.

Anubis, Guide of the Dead

Anubis was initially related to the Ogdoad of Hermopolis, as the god of the underworld. In the Pyramid Texts of Unas, Anubis is associated with the Eye of Horus who acted as a guide to the dead and helped them find Osiris. In other myths Anubis and Wepwawet (Upuaut) led the deceased to the halls of Ma’at where they would be judged. Anubis watched over the whole process and ensured that the weighing of the heart was conducted correctly. He then led the innocent on to a heavenly existence and abandoned the guilty to Ammit.

The ancient Egyptians believed that the preservation of the body and the use of sweet-smelling herbs and plants would help the deceased because Anubis would sniff the mummy and only let the pure move on to paradise. According to early myths, Anubis took on and defeated the nine bows (the collective name for the traditional enemies of Egypt) gaining a further epithet “Jackal ruler of the bows”.

The growing power of the Ennead of Heliopolis resulted in the merging of the two religious systems. However, Osiris was the King of the Underworld in the Ennead and he was more popular (and powerful) than Anubis. So Anubis was relegated to a god of mummification. To save face it was stated that Anubis had voluntarily given up his position when Osiris died as a mark of respect. Some myths even stated that Anubis was the son of Osiris and Nephthys (who was herself associated with the funeral rites). Anubis was still closely involved in the weighing of the heart, but was more a guardian than a ruler.

Anubis – Patron of Lost Souls

He became the patron of lost souls, including orphans, and the patron of the funeral rites. In this respect he overlapped with (and eventually absorbed) the Jackal God Wepwawet of Upper Egypt.

During the Ptolemaic Period Anubis became associated with the Greek god Hermes as the composite god Hermanubis. Hermes was messenger of the gods, while Anubis was principally guide of the dead. Hermanubis was some times given attributes of Harpokrates. He was worshipped in Rome until the second century and was popular with Rennaisance alchemists and philosophers.

Priests wore Anubis masks during mummification. However, it is not clear whether the Anubis mask was a later development influenced by the Osirian myth or whether this practice was commonplace in the earlier periods too. Anubis was also closely associated with the imiut fetish used during the embalming ritual. Anubis was credited with a high level of anatomical knowledge as a result of embalming, and so he was the patron of anaesthesiology and his priests were apparently skilled herbal healers.

Tombs in the Valley of the Kings were often sealed with an image of Anubis subduing the “nine bows” (enemies of Egypt) as “Jackal Ruler of the Bows” and it was thought that the god would protect the burial physically and spiritually. One of his epithets, “tpy-djuf” (“he who is on his mountain”) refers to him guarding the necropolis and keeping watch from the hill above the Theban necropolis. He was also given the epithet “khentyamentiu” (“foremost of the westerners” i.e. the dead) because he guarded the entrance to the Underworld.

He was originally thought to be the son of Ra and Hesat, Ra’s wife (who was identified with Hathor), but later myths held that he was the child of Osiris and Nephthys, or Set and Nephthys. He was sometimes described as the son of Bast because of her link to the perfumed oils used in embalming. His wife, Anput (his female aspect) was only really referred to in association with the seventeenth nome of Upper Egypt. It is thought that they were the parents of Kebechet, the goddess of the purification.

Dogs and jackals often patrolled the edges of the desert, near the cemeteries where the dead were buried, and it is thought that the first tombs were constructed to protect the dead from them. Anubis was usually thought of as a jackal (sAb), but may equally have been a wild dog (iwiw) He was usually depicted as a man with the head of a jackal and alert ears, often wearing a red ribbon, and wielding a flail. He was sometimes depicted as a jackal (such as in the beautiful examples from the tomb of Tutankhamun) but only rarely appears as a man (one example is in the cenotaph temple of Rameses II at Abydos).

His fur was generally black (not the brown associated with real jackals) because black was associated with fertility, and was closely linked to rebirth in the afterlife. In the catacombs of Alexandria he was depicted wearing Roman dress and the sun disk flanked by two cobras.

Anubis was worshipped throughout Egypt, but the center of his cult was in Hardai (Cynopolis) in the the seventeenth nome of Upper Egypt. To the east of Saqqara there was a place known as Anubeion, where a shrine and a cemetery of mummified dogs and jackals was discovered. He was also worshipped at cult centers in Abt (the eighth nome of Upper Egypt) and Saut (Asyut, in the thirteenth nome of Upper Egypt).

  • Barking
  • Dogs at large / unleashed (eg gated communities)

Does a Letter of Intent to Sue Work Every Time?

It’s expected by all persons victimized by dog that after a Letter of Intent to Sue is sent to the offending dog owner all their problems will cease. There is no such thing, unfortunately.

It usually works, most of the time, but not in all cases. Some dog lovers are hardened criminals or anti-social people or previously nice people who were later brainwashed by all the dog propaganda, and say: “I don’t care. Let them sue. I pay how much the penalty is. I can go to jail for how long it is. But nobody will ever take my dog!”.

In this case, your very best option is to hire a competent lawyer and go through all the legal process, lengthy and costly, in Small Claims Court or Superior Court, now to obtain financial reparation AND the destruction/relocation of the dog.

Anyway, the worst thing you can do is doing nothing.

Final notice – From Me

I am Not a lawyer. This information is provided in my highest goodwill but I encouraged you to talk to a competent lawyer, for example at the closest Small Claims Court where there are usually lawyers who can give you FREE legal advice and proceed in full accordance to all the laws and regulations in your specific location, be it neighborhood, city, state, country.

All the best.

Poonami – Dog Poop Tsunami From the Skies – Personal Stories

Personal Stories of Dog VictimsThis is a fantastic story from Reddit. You will love it!

Uncle’s Patient Dog Poo Vengeance

By TimeTravelTrabi

This is a story about my uncle’s vengeance. My uncle is chill and friendly, but he once had the misfortune of living next to an awful neighbor. The guy actually didn’t have a ton of bad habits, but he did exactly what he wanted to do and he didn’t care who it affected. And one of the things he wanted to do was take his big dog on a daily morning walk and let the dog do his doggy business on my uncle’s lawn.

The first time my uncle caught him, he calmly confronted him and politely requested that the neighbor stop using his lawn as a dog toilet. The neighbor calmly told my uncle to get fucked: he didn’t care what my uncle thought, there was nothing my uncle could do about it, and nothing would change.

This being 1970s southern California, my uncle couldn’t record the neighbor and shame him online or report him to the police for some litter violation, and although he is a cool uncle, he was in no way physically intimidating enough to get this guy to back down. Every day for a week he went outside to confront the shitty neighbor and his shitting dog, and every day he got the exact same answer: fuck off, I don’t care, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

On the eight morning, my uncle stayed inside, watching as the neighbor yet again allowed his dog to leave a fudgy dump on his lawn. Then, after the neighbor and his dog had continued on their walk, my uncle grabbed a shovel and went outside. He scooped up the dog shit and, with masterful accuracy, flung it onto the roof of the neighbor’s house. As mentioned before, this being 1970s California, the neighbor’s roof (like all of the houses in that area) had a very shallow slope, and once he saw that the poop didn’t roll off, my uncle headed back inside.

He repeated the exact same procedure every morning… for the next eight months.

Not once did the neighbor notice the steadily growing pile of dog shit on his roof, baking and dehydrating in the California sun. Not once did he smell anything off, nor did he find it suspicious that my uncle still greeted him in a friendly manner after having his lawn used as a dog loo every single morning.

Finally, after eight months, the hot and sunny weather gave way to a massive rainstorm. Within minutes, the entire crusty layer of dog poop shingles rehydrated and broke free, a reeking mudslide from hell that sloshed down onto the neighbor’s property, splattering his lawn, his house, and his car with literal pounds of dog shit. Over the next few days, the neighbor’s grass succumbed to the poison and died, paint began to flake off his car, and the neighbor himself had to finally clean up after his dog once the sunny weather returned and the remnants of the dog poonami began to dry up while still stubbornly stuck to every stinking corner of his house. Tragically, my uncle didn’t take any pictures of the poo-house (I would have loved to have seen that).

From the day after the rainstorm to the day my uncle moved out of that house, he never spoke to that neighbor again… but the dog poop stopped appearing on his lawn for good.

We can always learn something…!

Why Do People Need Pets? Ehhhrrr… dogs?

Why Do People Need PetsWhy do Some People Want Pets? Specially a dog???

“It’s an epidemic – most likely caused by a yet to be discovered virus; because no sane person would make such a sacrifice, of their time and money.”

Why do People Need Pets?

They don’t. As simple as that.

People are made to believe they need a pet, specially a dog. The demand for pets determines the supply and what we see are huge amounts of dogs outside, anywhere we go. Lots of advertisements with dogs. Lots of dog people claiming their dogs are wonderful.

Many people can see the usefulness of keeping pigs, chickens, or cattle: they serve as food for people. But what use are pets? The most common reasons people declaring for keeping pets are:

  • Company
  • Socializing
  • They are beautiful, nice and interesting
  • Status
  • Something to do

Ahn… really? Let’s see:

Company – You need an animal as a company? Sorry, but if you are incapable of finding a Human being as a company, you have a social dysfunction. You don’t need a pet dog, you need a doctor.

Socializing – You need an animal to socialize? Cant you go out and simply talk to people – humans – in a supermarket, bus stop, community meeting? Sorry, but if you are incapable of finding a Human being to talk to, you have a disability in engaging in social contacts. You don’t need a pet dog, you need a doctor.

Dogs are beautiful, nice and interesting– Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Would you find my Tarantula pet beautiful, nice and interesting? No??!! Exactly, I don’t think your dog is beautiful, nice and interesting at the least. By the very contrary.

What you think you see is what other people say they see. Those people have a variety of very strong reasons to behave that way: purporting dogs as gods of no evil doing (to make money in the process) or just going with everybody because everyone out there – specially the Hollywood Super Stars in movies and TV – has a dog so you must have a dog too, after all this is the new trend!

You want to be cool in the eyes of anybody else, instead of being yourself. Sorry, this a poor personality trait, a mental disorder. You don’t need a pet dog, you need a doctor.

Status – You want to show other people what you are really not. You need a pitbull to show you are bad and brave. You need a Azawakh dog ($3,000 and up) to show how rich you are. You need any dog whatsoever so your status in the community is as good as anybody else, except for the ones who do not have any dog at all. Sorry, this a poor personality trait, a mental disorder. You don’t need a pet dog, you need a doctor.

Something to Do – So just because you have nothing to do, you choose to get a dog. A dog? An animal that is loud (bad to your health, unless you are profoundly, 100% deaf) Dirty. Smelly. Destructive. Dangerous. Diseases carrying.
Exceptions – If you are an elderly, lost your spouse, your kids moved to another country, you are terminally ill… so, you may have plausible reasons to want a pet.

That does Not say that that will be a nice fit for you. You will spend lots of time (you have plenty), effort (you do Not have lots of energy), money (you may Not have if you need to take care of your general health). You are committing to a new job that you didn’t have to but, because “everybody else” does it, you can do too.

Dogs carry and spread a huge variety of diseases. Hazardous, life threatening diseases as well. Being an elderly, your health probably is not so good as it was when you were a teenager and a dog will just make it get worse.

Pooches are highly movable, they pose a serious hazard for your mobility in and around your home. Not a wise choice choosing a hobby that strongly increases your chances of a many falls.

You want ideas on what you can do as a senior, this site has a great list of *productive* activities, both for you and the environment. Please check it and open your mind.

Excuses on “Why do People Need Pets?”

We are all too familiar with excuses like “the many benefits of having a pet pose”. If not all, most are constantly debunked in a regular basis.

I won’t list them all but just give you one another example:

Petting animals does not result in lower blood pressure

A Dutch ( Health Insurance Company (De Friesland) wondered if petting animals can help to lower your blood pressure. The company did a number of “humorous” tests and arrived at the conclusion that petting animals does not, in fact, help against high blood pressure. The Insurance Company still advises keeping a pet, but then, of course, one that suits you best.

All I ask is that you make up your OWN mind and please don’t go with the fad crowd.

You may want a pet dog. But you do not need a pet dog.

Goats kick dogs – Goats are smart, better pets than pooches

Goats kick dogs - Even Goats are better than dogs

Goats kick dogs’ rear… in everything!

Goats kick dogs’ rear even as a better pet!

Take a look at the picture above; do you see a calm, silent animal, or a noisy, barking one?Do you see a lush green yard or a yellow-spotted unseeing area? Do you see piles of excrement all around? Would people pay top dollars for that place? Can you feel how pleasant is that natural smell in the air? Can you feel how peaceful is that property?

Obviously, and fortunately, we are talking about goats. Not dogs.

Goats don’t ‘bark’.
Goats don’t bite, maim, or kill.
Goats are not overly noisy animals.
Goats don’t constantly bother your neighbors.
Goats don’t warrant you regular visits from the Police.
Goats’ poop are immediately compostable and ready to use, fertilizing the soil.
Goats feed themselves, with grass, keeping the yards tidy and pleasant to look at.
Goats enrich your property, in numerous positive ways.

Dogs on the other hand… not at all!

Goats kick dogs’ rear as a better animal in general

Buying a goat can cost between US$70 and $350 depending on sex, age and temperament.

Buying or getting a dog no matter where (Not ‘Adopting a rescue dog…‘) is roughly the same, but a pedigree puppy can be sold by hundreds or even several thousands of dollars, and there are people who pay that!

The average lifespan of a goat is 12 years, while most dogs live between 10 and 13 years, without ever producing anything useful in their whole lifetime.

Goats are curious animals and may escape easily. But they will never bite, maim, or kill anyone. A 6ft high chain link fence which can cost up to $5,000 is recommended, but as a farmer you probably lready have one. They also need a warm and dry living space. A large doghouse will do, which costs around $400. Of course, goats deserve something much better than a dog house, simply because dog houses are for… dogs.

Goats need hay as bedding as well as 10lbs/5kg of hay per day to eat which will cost around $200 a year.

Dogs usually live indoors but costs for food are estimated to be around $400-$550 per year.

Routine vet bills of around $200 a year are likely for both animals. Dogs have additional costs of flea and worming treatments, neutering and spaying, kennel costs, microchipping, grooming as well as annual vaccination and booster shots. And all the extra, repeated fines after barking non-stop and by being re-captured by Animal Control after wandering freely in the residential neighborhood.

Overall a goat is likely to cost roughly $13,000 over its lifetime, compared with between $20,000 and $40,000 for a dog, depending on its size. Otherwise, you could feed them grass clipings or let them splurge on your lawn.

Goats can be destructive to simple fences, housing and gardens and can call loudly, which some neighbours may find a nuisance. But infinitely less than a barking dog.

Goats that are lactating (producing milk) need to be milked twice a day, every day. You should only consider getting a lactating goat if you’re prepared to put in the extra work and time needed for milking. But if you milk your goats you may either use it for your own family comsumption, or make money by selling them. Do dogs allow that?

Goats kick dogs’ rear as a better companion for the lonely

Now, pets? Goat pets? Please…

Goats are not for cities, only farms or cottages. Just like dogs are nor for homes or apartments, only to the outside, preferably far away from humans, close to where their ancestors, the wolves, live.

Animals are animals and should be left to live as such. Period.

But, if you still think you are psychologically attached to live with an animal, choose a goat. You will suffer less. And your neighbors, too.

“My neighbor has just gotten a pit bull puppy.”

Personal Stories of Dog Victims

I just got this question in the private messages area but I think I could reply here as it could hopefully help other people. Certainly, no private details are mentioned.

Let’s call him/her, Stormy:

“I don’t know if this is the right area to put this in, but here I go: My neighbor has just gotten a pit bull puppy. It doesn’t appear aggressive, but I still don’t feel safe with it around. What should I do?”

Hey, Stormy.

Well, at this point all you can do is nothing. Ethically or morally, nothing.

The dog is not barking. Yet.

The dog is not loose on the street. Yet.

The dog is not defecating in your front yard. Yet.

The dog is not breaking a fence and going to your backyard. Yet.

The dog is not a health hazard with its odors from uncollected feces and urine. Yet.

The dog is not preventing you and your family of enjoying your property in full. Yet.

The dog has not bitten anyone. Yet.

The dog has not attacked/mauled/maimed anyone. Yet.

The dog – a PITBULL – has not KILLED anyone. YET!

So, there is absolutely nothing at this point that you can do. Or is there?

Yes, there is.

I suppose you agree there is no point trying to convince your neighbor that pitbulls are dangerous and you would immensely appreciate if him/her could get rid of the canine.

I also suppose you once more agree that calling police/animal control/city officials would lend your complaints in death ears only. You may be ridiculed, too. Just because many of them are dog lovers nonetheless.

My suggestion is (because that is what I would probably *personally*) do:

  • Start reporting to the appropriate department in your city every little infraction Unrelated to the pitbull;
    – Loud parties
    – Invalid/expired car license plates
    – Unkept gardens
    – Untrimmed trees
    – Cars parked on the sidewalk
    – Smells of marijuana from their house?
    – Anything that could either annoy them like paying repeated fines or make their lives difficult and dangerous (police coming to their property when those are drug users?).
    – You got the idea: make their lives hell.
    (as that is what they are trying to do to yours, intentionally or not)
  • Start documenting every little infraction regarding that dog, right at this time, problems that will grow bigger and bigger very soon if you allow it to happen, infractions that are now Related to the pitbull:
    – Get a video camera/cellphone and start recording with clear audio and video everything that that neighbor is wrongly doing related with the dog, and the dog is doing by itself. If possible, this is the best, also get a Security Camera that records the limits of your property, 24×7.
    – Keep documenting EVERYTHING listed at the beginning of this post AND reporting them to appropriate department(s).
    – Keep copies of all this documentation in a safe place.
    – We all know what happens next: you will be dealt with indifference. Do NOT give up. Keep on documenting And reporting. At one point these logs will grow so big that they will HAVE to do something. If they don’t take action and something happens, eg a kid is mauled on your street, you may make good use of this by yourself or helping other affected neighbors.
    – You may call the press and provide them copies of all the documentation you collected. Please choose a serious, professional reporter and news organizations that seem to be more receptive to your story, than those dog-loving reporters and outlets.
    – You may even get to the point of threatening to sue those officials who didn’t do their job well. Or at all.

Easy? Of course not.

Quick? Of course not.

Stress-free? Of course not.

Perfect, 100% sure-proof? Of course not!

But even worse is if you do nothing, or do half heartdely, because in just a few months YOU will be the one who will HAVE to think about moving.

Well, that is sincerely what I’d probably do myself.

Hope you all the best, Stormy.



“It’s just a puppy…”

This is a phrase regularly used by doggists of all kinds. I’m not referring to Stormy above.

Instead, I say: No, it’s NOT JUST a puppy.

Just a puppy would be a puppy teddy bear, a simple teddy dog. Simply because that teddy dog will never grow bigger than what it is today. It will always be small and harmless.

Real dog puppies on the other hand will grow to become too big, too loud, too stinky, too annoying… too dangerous!

All you need is to wait just a few months and those little ‘cute‘ puppies will Not exist anymore. Before, they used to fit in a little bag that the owner could carry anywhere, easily. Later the now fully grown mutt is the one that pulls the owner anywhere it wants to go. Many times to bite you or to poop on your immaculate begonia garden.

During this later stage, the barker barks more and louder, defecates more, urinates more, probably carries more diseases, and can cause bodily harm several times more serious and even life threatening than that little puppy from a few months ago.

Landlords are one class that is constantly deceived by this statement, actually a lie, a white lie, but a lie no matter what: “Oh, it’s just a puppy, there will be no problems…“. Yeah, right.

Other people, normal people, decent persons with big hearts many times succumb to this, well, how can I say, just like a little kid when she says “Ahhh, but I want this soooo much… please buy it for me… please, please… I love you sooo much…“. Emotional chantage?

Point is: Please don’t let dog people deceive you, or anyone you care for, with the fake mantra of “It’s just a puppy…“.

It’s not.

Different Types of Dog Owners – Driven by Insanity to Greed.

Dog Owners, dog lovers, dog supporters… lots and lots of people promoting everything dogs.


You’re going to find the major 3 types of dog ‘lovers’, not necessarily dog ‘owners’, just because some people who ‘love‘ dogs – because of the money they make – not always ‘have‘ dogs, just promote them in some way. Or several ways.

I’m not going to describe Responsible or Irresponsible dog owners, or if they are the bullying or the introvert type. No. There are countless lists like that, almost all from dog loving sites and that is not what matters to us, regular people who just want peace and quiet.

Here is, the major 3 types of dog owners, actually dog lovers, are:

  • Dog Worshipper
  • Mary-Goes-Round
  • Dog Greeder

In greater detail…

Dog Worshipper

The person who feverishly adores dogs at no cost, no matter what. This is the real ODOR (Obnoxious Dog Owner) who will never, ever listen to reason, even after tragic events happening even to themselves.

One example? We have Grandma Linda who was allowed to spill her insanity here on this site until we could take it no more.

They border insanity, or already crossed that border.


The person who got a dog just because of social pressure; “As everybody has a dog, I have to have one , too!”.

I remember one of those Candid Camera episodes on a Saturday/Sunday night when the presenter was talking – live – to a family and they told him that they did Not have a dog. The presenter’s immediate reaction:”What, you guys do NOOOT have a dog???!” Yes, he was joking, but the family made that face of “We are being ashamed… on national, live TV…” and they certainly were. They were made of fools in front of millions and millions of tv spectators who then either thought “I have a dog!” or “I have to have a dog…

Dog Greeder

The ‘propagandist‘. This is the person or group of people or even entire businesses and organizations that promotes dog ownership, either directly or indirectly.

They are, in no specific order:

  • Dog breeders/ Puppy Mills – Low level business people, usually with no formal education at all or professional qualifications, who decided to open a business, many times to run unlicensed, to start raising dogs for profit. They can do that because there is No entry barrier to start such a business, but lots of unwary customers. Anyone can do it, in the worst meaning possible.
  • Dog fighters – People who raise fighting dogs for profit during and after fighting sessions and sell them at a later stage for a lot of money. Winning fighting dogs selling for up to US$40,000 at that point are common. Most are career criminals, convicted felons. Pitbulls are their dog of choice.
  • Hollywood actor/actress – They may even hate dogs to their heart but always have a dog on their movies. Pay attention if you can find a movie nowadays without dogs or a barking noise in the background sound. They won’t be easy to find. One exception are independent movies and actors/actresses, simply because they are independent, they do not receive orders from the big H.
  • Hollywood Studios – Their movies have to have a dog, specially in the beginning. Those dogs are always smart, well-trained… and never do evil. Nor are ever hurt.
    From one of our commenters on Facebook:

From Rick

Think about the movies made in America. Arnold or Bruce can kill dozens of people in the movies, but even an attacking dog has to be shown to be “okay” or you lose your audience. (Example: “True Lies”, where Arnie bops the heads of two dobermans together, and they have to show them running off unharmed.). In the movie “Dante’s Peak” Children risk their lives to save the family dog, then watch Grandma die a horrible death in some lava. But they don’t mourn her, the dog is ok. In the movie, “The War of the Roses” The climax of the movie is when Michael Douglas believes Kathleen Turner has cooked his dog “Benji” and served it to him for dinner. The whole dark ending hinges on this moment, but of course, they show Benji hiding under a desk unharmed. In the movie, “A Fish Called Wanda”, Michael Palin plays a hit man who is supposed to kill an eyewitness, but accidentally offs her poodles instead, which upsets him to great comedic effect. This was a BRITISH movie, and I talked to some people who would not see it because a poor doggie gets killed. This mentality of elevating canines over people is why some people (a lot) want to “rescue” defenseless pits instead of putting human children first. And it gets worse every decade. I remember vividly going to the beach 30 years ago and though everyone was smoking cigarettes, there were very few dogs. People left them home. Now there are few cigarettes and everyone brings their dogs to the beach because they are “sad” if they can’t come.

  • TV Producers – Similar to big H, you won’t find too many TV series or even documentaries without dogs wandering around. Discovery Channel, History Channel, NatGeo… almost always currently portray dogs in their programs. It was not that way a few years back.
  • Dog Sellers – Self explanatory, isn’t it?
  • Petshops – Have you noticed the explosion of pe$t shops near you?
  • Dog “rescue” organizations – Are dogs ever “rescued“? Please! Dogs are ONLY TAKEN from the streets or from a previous dog keeper who discarded the dog. Unless it is a scenario where a dog is taken from a house on fire or pulled from a drilling well, that is NO rescuing operation whatsoever! Just a ploy to deceive the least intelligent.
  • Dog “adoption” agencies – As above, are dogs ever “adopted“? Please, again! No, dogs  are not adopted! Dogs are BROUGHT to a home for a person to TAKE CARE of the animal. Hopefully. The word “Adoption” must be reserved only for people, humans, like the millions of kids in orphanages who are expecting a loving family to really adopt them.
  • Dog “adoption” events – Dog  supporters promote several kinds of events, like in parks, for current non-dog owning people to adopt get a first dog, or for people who already have a dog to get a new dog(s). Such events are almost always supported by petshops or pet food companies.
  • Dog shelters – Shelter? No. That is a kennel. Nothing else.
  • Dog “shows – An event where excentric people take their dogs to prove how special and the best of the best they are. Such events are almost always supported by petshops or pet food companies. The media is always present because it makes money for them.
  • Main Stream Media – The big websites and news media organizations that are constantly promoting dogs, including pitbulls as is the case of the Huffington Post. Their “news” attract gazzilions of Type 1 and Type 2 of dog owners and so make them tons of money in advertising. More people coming means higher fees for all advertisers, including those that have nothing to do with dogs whatsoever.
  • Veterinarians – Those professionals today see to care just for dogs, other animals, like farm animals, seem not to interest them a lot. Maybe because dogs are the ones that make the most money?
  • Veterinarian Associations – They are in the plural form because basically every major country has one. They are always promoting the virtues of dog ownership. Virtues, yeah…
  • A satellite dog-industry that will do anything and everything to keep their businesses running and profiting from this fad, from the “Sexy Beast Dog Perfume” to “Rear Gear Butthole Covers”. Only the greeders can sell, only the stupid will buy.

A special category within Dog Greeders

The three groups below seem not to financially and directly benefit from the dog business, but let’s see:

  • Animal Control – If there were No dogs, there would be No dog problems, so that there would be No need for Animal Control officers, and other employees, who are all government employees, seemly incapable or unwilling to find a better job in the real world. Still worse is that some of those public servants are connected to groups like kennels and shelters an d such. Please refer to and that you will find several real life examples there.
    By not doing their job well they negatively contribute to the dog problem. First one.
  • Police Officers – Similarly to Animal Control people above, cops love dogs, specially the more dangerous ones. Cops are usually bullies and so they need a dog to match their personality. As dog lovers, they do whatever they can to not solve any problems created by dogs, for example, barking dogs. One example here: Why cops do Not come for dog violations?.
    By not doing their job well they negatively contribute to the dog problem. Second one.
  • Politicians – In view of not losing voters, they follow the herd. If there are lots of dog owners, they will legislate in benefit of them, who cares about the rest of the population with barking and getting killed. Also important are the dog lobbies, for example, highly vocal pitbull advocates breeders that always make a lot of noise (pun intended) and so frighten and intimidate them.
    By not doing their job well they negatively contribute to the dog problem. Third one.
  • Judges – Lately we have seem numerous absurd decisions by judges benefiting dog owners of all kinds in all cases: barking dogs, ok; dog mauled baby, ok, community service; dog killed elderly, ok, a $100 dollar fine and one month prohibited of possessing a dog; and so on. Even though they are paid for by the entire population they seem to be protecting only the lives of dog owners, mostly criminals.
    By not doing their job well they negatively contribute to the dog problem. Fourth one.

I left one major, most obvious group out, on purpose; can you guess which is that?

There are more, perhaps.

People Who Do Not Own Dogs – But Do Nothing – The Cowards?

There is perhaps a fourth category, so not included the other three above, that are the people who do Not have and may not even like dogs but, due to social pressure, they never do or say anything against dogs.

They are different from the Mary-Go-Round, as those ones HAVE a dog.

They are afraid of what their family, friends, coworkers… will say about them and so they keep quiet, even during a non-stop barkathon or a vicious attack on a children they know well. They don’t call the Police, AC. They don’t attend HOA Homeowners Association meetings to tackle the problem. They don’t agree to  testify as a witness for a neighbor who is suing the criminal dog owners. Some are even cautious of clicking a Like button on Facebook because ‘everybody’ will know they are ‘dog haters’.

Anything that needs their help, a minimum help, lifting a finger, they refuse to take part. Even when strongly benefiting them.

They simply chicken out.

People who refuse to criticize the danger of dog ownership and worshiping to friends, family and co-workers, makes them a willing part of the problem that society is not changing as fast as it could be for the better.

With their passivity and complacency they seem to agree to the dog pushers so their numbers seem even bigger.

Dog business grow. Normal people lose.

Silence encourages the tormentor,
never the tormented.”

Elie Wiesel

People Who Do Not Own AND Do Not Want Dogs

Those are us.

Me, at least.

And me being me, I ponder: How can we combat all those people and stop this craze?

(if that is ever possible)

Man Sneaks A Dog Into Hospital To See His Dying Wife (FAKE!)

fake-dogsPlease, take a look at this ‘story’:

His Wife’s Final Wish Was To See Their Beloved Dog Again, So He Came Up With A Clever Plan.

After suffering complications stemming from an invasive surgical procedure, one woman had undergone the procedure to save her life – but after a few days, it was clear that things were not going well.

Her last wish was to see the couple’s dog, named Bella, before she passed away. Of course, dogs aren’t normally allowed in hospitals, but her husband wasn’t going to let that stop him from granting his dying wife’s final request. So he came up with a brilliant plan.

Before she passed, the woman had one final wish.

She wanted to see the couple’s dog, an Australian shepherd named Bella, one last time.

Her husband knew he had to grant her wish, but there was just one problem: dogs aren’t allowed in hospitals.

But he wasn’t going to let that stop him. He got a suitcase and put the 50-pound dog inside.

When they asked him what he was carrying, he told them it was something for his wife’s comfort.

“Unbelievably, she never whimpered, barked, or whined. When I walked past the station nurses, I told them I was simply bringing items to make my wife more comfortable.
He took the bag into the room and unzipped it. Bella hopped right out and up onto the bed, positioning herself so she could look right into the wife’s eyes.

When she woke up and saw Bella there, she burst into tears. She was just so happy.

She hugged Bella for over an hour. A nurse that noticed what was happening was so overcome by the scene that she let Bella stay.

Sadly, the wife passed away a few days later. Her husband says that now, whenever he grabs his suitcase, Bella gets uncontrollably excited because she thinks they’re going to see her again.

What an incredible thing to do for your loved one. I can’t imagine what she must have felt like, looking into her beloved dog’s eyes one last time.

Share this touching story with your friends below.

I call it total BS!

Almost all the photos are of different dogs, most from Flickr.

Dog nutters, specially dog greeders, are capable of anything, and I think this clearly is one of those cases.

A dying wife. A loving husband. An elderly couple. A life-long marriage. A loyal dog…

A woman. Not named.
A husband. Not named.
A hospital. Not named.
A nurse. Not named.
A story. No source.

A dog. That is ‘named’.

This story was picked by big media sites like:


It’s clear that they didn’t verified anything, just wholeheartedly trusted the word of a Reddit user named Mellifluous_Username.

So, just invent a ‘touching’ story and the easily influenced dog lovers out there, current and soon-to-be-dog owners, would feel touched and encouraged to get a new, or another, dog.

More money in the doggists pockets.

Dog nutters; how low they can go?


Wait, that story may be fake, I stand by my assumption. But this insanity is real, this time again in Brazil, a news story that just broke up at the DailyMail in the UK even though it is said to have happened october last year (would there be a reason for that, eg the contamination the mutt brought to the hospital?). Here is:

Moving moment a terminally ill mother, 49, with cancer is granted her dying wish to be reunited with her beloved pet dog for the last time

  • Rebane Chili decided to discontinue her treatment after a long battle 
  • She had not seen her dog Ritchie since being hospitalized in Porto Alegre
  • Both Brazilian mother and her dog were overjoyed to see each other again
  • Doctors said they noticed a change in her mood and she was more active

The Hospital’s name is Hospital Ernesto Dornelles. That is ALSO a hospice hospital.

Hope none of the Olympic athletes need to be treated there.

Fake or not, insane, yes.
