Dog Hell

I thought I'd have a pleasant, relaxing ride on the horse, but no. It was Dog Hell. Don't get me wrong, I like dogs, but Stella was a bridge too far. Well, she got a shake up and quietened down - not before time. The question is, if animals can go to heaven, can they go to hell?

Had a good equine encounter after the Dog War went cold - must concentrate thoughts on Coyote Call(ing) & getting a .308.

Here's Bishop Wantland, a shooter and all 'round good man. Favors Charles Martel, as do I. Just say no to dhimmitude.

Gun Rights,

LSP I have a question for you. Was the dog doing his job and guarding the property? And if so should the dog be destined to eternal damnation for doing his job and teaching you something while he was doing what it was he was doing?

I love your horse and great to see that you have a friend who also shares the same passion for guns as you do.

I lived near a farm as a kid. The old man who ran it had a favorite dog. One day the dog started chasing a deer and the old man called and called and called but the dog wouldn't come back. So he jerked his pistol and shot the dog and caught it up in his arms and tossed it on top of the dog pile and said "I loved that dog" and walked away. I was shocked. Thirty years later I laugh my ass off at the memory.

Good question Darlin.

The dog was simply being bad! More the fault of its owners than anyone else...

Damnation? I don't think that's a choice Stella's equipped to make. Fortunately, perhaps, for Stella.

God bless.

That is a great story Sanarky - will have to quote you.

tKilling an animal for disobedience is a terrible story; the dog was just following its quiddity, and its death was an unforgivable fellness.

The farmer found his pleasure in the controlling, and not in loving his "favorite dog"; I'd venture, he was not capable of the latter, himself included

I agree! What they tend to do here in "the brush" is let their unwanted animals loose.

They pack up, go feral, and end up getting shot, sadly. If you don't want the animal don't get one. That's what I say.

Must get a new horse.

People don't realize there is an expense dog ownership, and they dump them near new home construction thinking they will be adopted.

I remember the first time I saw a coydog, and naively thought they were just ugly mutts.

What happened to your other horse?
