    Unfortunately people will still be doing these stupid things because of idiot pet store chains, who seem to be there for the sole reason of cheating people out of their money and ruining the lives of both their customers and the pets themselves. If you have a local pet store chain that begins with PET in it, Please inform the owners of these 3 main chains to get a freaking clue and to educate their employee's as well. Nothing is worse than overhearing a pet store employee literally giving someone all the wrong advice and info because their idiot friend had one of these and knows everything, even though the correct answer lies in a book these twits sell and are obviously to stupid to pick the darned thing up and read it first.

    Sorry for the rant but i had to let it out

    For a post that is several years old, still nothing much has changed.

    Hopefully, we can get enough people educated to make these changes in a real way. Its is difficult to paddle against a tide that pushes out animals as if they were simply a disposable product.

    I just read through alot of this thread. Post #1 talks about no sane person would keep a Great Dane in an Apt. Actually according to Animalplanet.com and my personal experience with owning multiple Great Danes, they make just about the BEST apartment dog. They are in the top 10 list for best apt dog. Big, lazy, huge bladder, gentle, not yappy like all of the small "dogs" that people think are good apt dogs.

    I don't understand why animal rights groups are all about dogs and cats but don't give a **** about fish. Fish are animals too! Sure, fish aren't cute. They can't make sad puppy-dog eyes, and they can't cry out if they're being hurt, but that doesn't mean they can't think and feel.

    I've even dealt with experienced and knowledgeable aquarists who think that fish cannot feel as much as terrestrial animals. Once I was reading a story about a student who had to use live goldfish in a science lab. I was outraged and said that it's equivalent to using dogs and cats in a lab. I was then fought and told that it's not the same. I had to end the debate with, "Well excuse me for believing that all life is equal." I made this picture on Ribbet to pass around and in hope that it will help open some people's eyes.

    Well, there's still some debate as to what extent fish "think" and "feel" but I do agree that too many people view them as expendable.

    Haha, I was JUST going to make that Great Dane comment myself! Contrary to popular belief, Greyhounds are also perfect apartment dogs, because all they want to do is sleep 24/7.
