Quoting I'm Marbles:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Syndal:</b>" That's good at least. Just why get a dog if you're ... [snip!] ... family but maybe one has an allergy to it so it has to stay outside. Others dogs no matter how hard you try can not be trained."
Quoting Syndal:" If you have allergies to dogs then you shouldn't be getting dogs. The dog shouldn't have to suffer because ... [snip!] ... outside without proper shelter? Your analogies are flawed and make no sense in the context of the idea that is being discussed."
Quoting Syndal:" That doesn't mean small dogs can survive the same conditions as a large dog."
Quoting SamMarie! :" VERY TRUE! we came from the apes, with a bunch of hair, I guess we dont need to wear coats and we can sit outside without getting sick in -0 weather "
Quoting Syndal:" Yeah I'm glad at least one lady kinda got it. This is why so many animals suffer. People don't seem to think of them in the right light."
Quoting NatashaHarper:" A dog is a dog is a dog... their coat, muscles, fat etc are relative to their size (obviously) So a ... [snip!] ... they will enjoy the different scents that the outside world gives them that a life sat indoors (until walk time) doesnt! "
Quoting NatashaHarper:" Oh for god's sake, grow up! You're saying we neglect our animals and let them suffer!? No. We are saying ... [snip!] ... have any issues leaving them outside. So no, I do not let my dogs suffer and I know what is good for them and what is not!"

Quoting animaLibera_:" I live in Ohio which gets extremely cold in the winter, our news station even make efforts to warn owners ... [snip!] ... when they bark their heads off they disturb neighbors who are trying to sleep at 1 am. It's rude and inconsiderate and lazy."
Quoting NatashaHarper:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Syndal:</b>" Uh no, I said they shouldn't be left in freezing ... [snip!] ... I wasn't saying just leave them there! As long as they have food and water and a bed and kennel I don't see the problem!"
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" What part of Ohio do you live in? Because i have never heard that, ever. Two of our dogs are outside, year round. We must be inconsiderate, rude and lazy because of that right?"
Quoting andthesenights:" I think they're required to have shelter. Do they have a kennel or something big enough for all three ... [snip!] ... a noise complaint, maybe that would inspire them to bring their dogs inside. I've called about a dog that barks nonstop before."
