politics, religion, money and coffers

I don’t believe in cash registers“, » said the puppy’s new owner. I don’t want my dog ​​to be confined; It is cruel. She is part of the family; she shouldn’t be in a cage, she should be with us.

If you think this owner called me about burglary problems, you would be right.

I do not know when the idea of ​​crates has become an ideology with its share of supporters and detractors. People who resist checkouts become really adamant – and vocal – about not using crates.

Suki, 8-month-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is far from potty trained. Suki is usually kept in the kitchenWhere there is child safety gates blocking all open doors and pee pads scattered all over the ground. Her owners, however, allow her to be out of the kitchen when they are home to “supervise” her, so Suki had to accidents in almost every room in the House. Suki owners want her ask them come out, and now we are desperate to ever get the message.

If Suki owners are frustrated and desperate, Suki is just confused. Here is Suki’s thought process:

Oops, I have to go potty. Since I’m stuck in the kitchen and can’t get to the door, no one seems to know that I have to go out. I’ll sniff around and pee… here! It’s quite far from my food dish. OK it’s kind of on this piece of paper. There’s definitely a lot of paper on the floor. I’m just going to put one on. Yawn. It’s boring. Hey, shredding paper – now that’s fun!

Wow, I can finally get out of the kitchen with my family. Hmmm, I have to go potty. No one sees me looking at the door, so I’ll just stand behind the big chair and the potty. I’ve been there before and it always smells good. Plus, it’s quite far from my bed and, you know, “out of sight, out of mind.”

And if Suki could talk, here’s what she could say to her owners:

  • The kitchen is so big that I can always do my business wherever I want. If I had a smaller area (like a crate…hint…hint!) I would keep my little den clean. I’m a dog and we like to do our business away from our beds.

Suki is right. For even more reasons to become a believer in cashvisit the Humane Society of the United States which promotes crate training.
