    Is on, tomorrow at 3pm on the Animal Channel.

    There are going to be a ton of cute puppies, kitty halftime, hedgehog cheerledaers and hamster announcers.

    Yay! The puppy bowl did very well in the ratings and all the adorable beasts were adopted.

    Thanks for posting the link! They are all adorable.

    It would be awesome if they could do even one 15 minute segment on older dogs. Bet they'd all be adopted too. icon_cool.gif

    That would be great. Maybe they could have a panel of old dogs sitting in a control booth situation behind a press table with microphones commentating (with human voice overs, of course) in the style of Howard Cosell, John Madden. Bob Costas, Marv Albert, etc.

    I think that would be a hoot. Those old dogs would be adopted for sure.

    Or maybe I just have too much free time on my hands to think of silly scenarios. icon_cool.gif

    I didn't consider older dogs needing homes. There are so many puppies up for adoption, because the owners of their mother couldn't adopt them out, and couldn't keep them, either.

    Yep. In my situation... my dogs are all old and I only have a couple of precious years left with them before they pass. When they are gone, I can't imagine my life without a dog... I've always had at least two dogs since I was a boy.

    I'm not sure I have the patience or inclination to want to train a puppy and I'm not even sure I would outlive a puppy or be able to care for them in in my old age. So after my dogs are gone I'm gonna adopt an old dog who needs a break and not so much attention as a puppy would require. I'm thinking of adopting one of the breeds like a Pit Bull or Rottweiler that have a bad reputation for being "aggressive."

    Those breeds have an almost certain death warrant issued when they are surrendered to a shelter. I think it is so sad; 99% of all dogs regardless of breed are sweet as long as they have never been abused.

    Oh! I love Rottweilers; they're such a good breed! There's one rottweiler in my neighbourhood that is so good. I gave him one rub near the tush, and he was puddy in my hands ever since. icon_lol.gif

    I want another dog, but I can't do it. Every time I go to the SPCA I feel like I want to adopt them all! It's so sad to see them all crying and barking the way they do, and it makes me so sad every time I leave. icon_cry.gif

    I know. My 3 male MinPins were all adopted from a MinPin rescue group that were in foster homes because I was particularly interested with that breed. My girl dog Farrah is a Lhasa Apso mix and she was an impulse buy. I bought her from a guy selling a litter of mongrels from the back of his pick up truck in a Walmart parking lot. She was so cute and sweet I couldn't resist her girlish charms and she stole my heart. She cost me $40 bucks and is the most well behaved dog I have ever had.

    I've never set foot in an SPCA shelter and I'm not looking forward to it. I know that one lucky dog will come home with me but the other dogs that I don't adopt for whatever reason have a good chance of being euthanized. That is a lot of guilt for a person to have on their soul knowing that the dogs you can't bring home with you probably aren't going to make the final cut and be put down. Who am I to play God and choose who lives or dies? But I'll cross that bridge when I have to.

    I'm not interested in a specific breed any more so my next adoption will be from the SPCA instead of a breed oriented rescue. Dogs in rescue orgs are in foster homes with people who love them and genuinely care about their welfare. Dogs in the SPCA shelters have just a few days to be adopted or it is curtains for them. icon_sad.gif

    Some of the dogs in the sPCA are in foster homes, but I find the SPCA is increasingly rescuing dogs from puppy mills and cats from hoarders, and they find alot of sick animals that cannot be helped, and have to be put down. Quebec is embarrassingly and notoriously known for it's lax laws on animal cruelty so alot of people come to the province because they know they can get away with alot of abusive behaviour towards the animals. It's a great shame, for me.
