This site is notoriously known for receiving all kinds of cursings, death threats and what not. Specially several “f@ck-you” notes. Right now I have over 200 messages in my in-box and certainly most will be just like that.
By the way, I just noticed that I’ve got not my first, but my second(!) report to the FBI! You’ve read it right, that FBI. It’s on Facebook. All because I’m letting people know real stuff about mutts and nutts.
Yes, Mr. MAD is famous!
Well, on the other hand, once in a while I come to get a real “Thank You” message. Together with a kind personal story from a regular French folk, just like us, who simply want to live our lives in peace.
I just want to say that I’m really glad I got this message and that this is one of the main reasons I keep on with this site.
A big Thank You for you too, cher visiteur!
This is a message of support and gratitude from one of your french readers. I want to thank you. I have always wondered why I was forced to endure the stressful barks of dogs every time I walked in front of some gate since my childhood. Every walk is a dog’s opportunity to disturb my tranquility and peace of mind. I’m not afraid to say it even scares at times. City life has been a source of stress to me, and I’ve found out that road traffic is not the only cause of that. In every park, on every sidewalk, on every path : dogs are here. Many nights, I stayed awake late because barks disturbed my sleep. My mother herself was bitten by a dog when she was a child. A guest’s dog has come into our garden and scared my pet tortoise (the dog barked and looked like it was about to attack, and tortoises as you know are powerless, peaceful animals…) I was almost kicked from the familial home because the guest’s dog was still there, and my father knows how I hate dogs, so for peace’s sake he decided that I had to leave ! Can you believe this ? The next day, I was walking outside, minding my own business, and I swear within one minute after I left my place, a f****** dog jumped at me and barked at me. This was the last straw. Enough was enough. I kicked him right in the snout, in view of its owner who was shocked to see someone actually expressing its disapprobation of her unquestionable choice of owning a dog and letting it disturb people. I was furious. I AM furious. How have we come to this ? We have come to this because some misguided people took for a pet a degenerated wolf hybrid trained for hunting and guarding since thousands of years. We must DEFEND ourselves. Let’s stop being passives and letting a few dog owners ruin our cities and parks. We deserve better than this, and dogs deserve to return into the wild (The ability for dogs to actually survive without human help is of no concern to me. Let natural selection sort it out.) So, thank you for this blog, it shows me that I am not alone, it has given me methods to defend myself against this plague, and it gives me hope that, maybe, some day, we will have dog-free cities and lives. Thank you. ***** from France.
Once more, thank you very much for your kind words.
