      If you’re in Dublin, there is a whole pop-up shop for merch in Meltdown Cafe on Stephen Street.

    Yes! To degenerative inbreeding in toy dog puppy farms! Don’t forget your “boys” epilepsy medication!

      Did it ever occur to your seething hateful little brain that these may have come from a shelter?

          tell me. what do dogs that came from a shelter look like?

          Some people shell out 500 quid for purebred huskie puppies and they still end up in shelters — do you think these wee things are exempt cos they’re cute?!

            My cat is a rescue cat. She’d had a very traumatic life before being rehomed. She’s a lovely little thing. She’s gentle and very affectionate, and good with the kid.

            Even my dad, who is not a cat person, likes her.

            We both know these guys didn’t come from a shelter. And what if they did? . The fact that they exist in the first place is what pisses me off. These toy dogs live a life of pain and even if Reiltin (Reitlin?) rescued these dogs and they came to her neutered. They are a living (in pain and up to there eyes in daily medication) advertisement for toy dogs for all the idiots out there who want a pair too. And they will get them from a puppy farm and not a shelter, and come the next financial crash they will probably end up in a shelter anyway. It is cruel. I am against cruelty to animals. People say one thing and do the other. I take the “I rescued him/her” story with a pinch of salt. These dog breeds have to come from somewhere. Ocsar and Charlie cant mate with each other (successfully at least) so how are we to know they aren’t “intact” and not loaned out to another dog owner who has a female of the same breed? (and probably an auntie or some relation these two besides). Have you ever seen the malformed runts that come with a litter of inbreed pups? They have to be put down and the rest have to be put on drugs from birth to death , from cancer &/or organ failure.

            Sooooooo postmanpat you think these dogs should have been euthanised and don’t deserve to live?! What about disabled dogs? What about golden retrievers who are prone to hip problems in later years?!

            No trolling, but to answer your 3 questions, 1: Inbread toy dogs on lifetime meds, Yes. 2: Disabled dogs in chronic pain, Yes 3: Hip problem in later life (due to inbreeding) and in pain . Yes. When they stare at you with those eyes , begging “please kill me!” . My parents in law had a very sick dog that used to give me that look. No one had the heart to bring her to the vet and she lived on for a few months more than I was comfortable with but it wasn’t my place to tell them what to do. If I could go back I would have persuaded them and brought her myself. There are worse things than death Sharina. Suffering , especially needless suffering. A right to live isn’t the point. A right to die is. Instead of being forced to exist solely for the pleasure of a “higher” species.

            I didn’t bring it up. If they did I’m delighted they were rehomed. All my dogs have been rescued. Go Dogs Aid!

          2. Boj

            Oh I know De Kloot and I completely share your sentiments on Dogs Aid & shelters. However I saw no relevance of that fact in this debate…hence my ‘so what’ outburst! I see the author confirms that they are indeed rescue dogs, well done to them, I’m delighted, but why Starina brought up the shelter argument is beyond me. Postmanpat was referencing the inbreeding and subsequent medical care required as a result of inbreeding these dogs.

      1. postmanpat

        Crikey! These dogs have more rights then us. Then again, they are forced to breed with close relatives like grandfather and grandmother , to keep “ze-blood line pure!” Like precious Oscar and Charlie above.

          Seems that you care more about animal rights than the rights of your fellow humans. That’s nice of you.

            I like to make assumptions on people based on a few random sentences on the internet.

            I’m nice like that.

    1. The Ghost of Starina

      Yes. Often in shelters if a dog comes in pregnant they will neuter the dog, aborting the pups in the process. Same for cats.

    2. Is Mise

      They will terminate an animals pregnancy in order to protect the animals health and well being.

      This is not the case for women in Ireland.

      1. postmanpat

        Even today women have to disguise themselves as pets and go to a vet when faced with an unwanted pregnancy.
