This has probably been done before, and I didn't bother to searchbar because it would have probably yielded an old thread which I would be yelled at for necroing. So deal with it.
If you could have any animal in the history of the world as a pet, what animal would you choose?
I'd have a pet Spinosaurus and name him Cuddles.

I don't find the concept of keeping pets a very humane one and I find it a bit sickening to be honest.

A Jolteon if I had to choose.

I can't imagine a pet better than my GSD pup, she's only 5 months old and awesome!

Oh yes showering a dog with affection, feeding it, letting it swim in my pool, sleep in my bed, and run around my large yard is so inhumane. I'm a monster.

Edit. a Valosoraptor (spelling?)

I just don't get what people mean by that. If you mean domesticated animals in general I get you. But if you mean dogs should just run wild, thats what I don't get. Sorry that I came across as a douche if I did.

Get by what? I think it's sickening that people call their pets their own. Do you own the dog or do you live with it?

Why claim ownership over another living being?

I just meant that I have met people that say they don't like domesticated animals. I'm ok with people thinking that if they want even If I don't agree. What bothers me is when someone bashes me for having a dog even though it lives better than a lot of people children.

Why is it sickening?
You provide a home for the dog, you feed the dog, you take the dog to a vet, ... dude, it's YOUR dog.
imo it's absurd to say you 'live with your dog'


EDIT: to contribute to the thread I'd say a sloth or an anteater

yeah, my dog would love to be kicked out on the streets in the cold so he could go try to find his own food so he does not die. Thats what he really wants.

A classic case of somebody having an opinion that is outlandish just to be attention grabbing. There are far worse things in the world then caring lovingly for animals, I imagine.

A mole. The saddest thing I've ever heard, was that I could never have a pet mole. They have panic attacks and die if they're not underground.

Maybe if I got it drunk all the time, showed it some titty bars, it'd man up.

Attention grabbing? I'm not forcing anyone to answer me. I stated my opinion. I don't blame others for having pets, but I don't have pets of my own.

"there are far worse things in the world". Wow, what a solid argument for not having opinions about subjects.

Wow, people really started to cry now?

"my dog isn't complaining"

Yeah well he doesn't know what else exists, not that I say anyone of you treat your pets in a bad way. I don't think you do, but what would a dog know about anything else but what is put in front of it?

I'm sure she is. I would too

I did not state I think these pets are being taken care of in a bad manner whatsoever, I however find it weird to claim ownership over other living beings.

Opinions are fine and I respect everyone elses. But seriously, you said "it's sickening" that people call their pets their own. I'm my father and mothers son, aren't I?
Besides, I racially abuse my dog because he's black. Fair game.

I find it sickening when people see their pets as their own and their possesion yes. If it's your friend it's another thing. But I think people really try to misunderstand every single thing they read in here just for the sake of being e-tough guys.

I think people really know what I meant and just wanted to act stupid to be able to insult me.

Either that or idiocy is the new trend.

Do your parents own you?

We didn't ask you to roll in here with a ludicrous claim you can't support other than it's your opinion.

EDIT: Furthermore, it is my opinion that the song Friday is actually good. Anything you say regarding how terrible the lyrics are at this point is rendered moot because you disagree with me.

So you're against having children?
It isn't weird.
I'm sure if an animal could choose to have a life full of being treated nicely (in most cases) or being in the wild at risk of disease, hunting, being eaten by higher species in the food chain, etc etc, then it would choose to be a pet.

Besides which, that's what domesticated animals are for.

The thread was about pets, I stated my opinion about pets.

Why would I support my opinion in any other way than stating it's my opinion?

Off to eat some meat. Hope it's delicious.

You can't eat the meat though, because it's an animal and you don't own it, and as you don't own it that means it's stealing.

THIEF!

Well what the hell else are they for?
That's the whole meaning of the word 'domesticated' they were bred over the years to be suitable for home keeping.
If you release a domestic animal into the wild, it would most probably die within a few days, and if not it would have a much shorter lifespan as it has not adapted to living in the wild.

Unless you're arguing that domesticated animals shouldn't exist, fair enough if you don't see the point of pets, but I doubt Humans would have advanced thus far if they had never kept animals in some form or another.

if your parents feed you, give you a place to live and love you then yes, I would say they do own you in some way.

I think your more mad at people in the world thinking they can own everything they can buy. (witch is a problem and does piss me off) But your thing with dogs is just plain stupid.
