Re: “Huge turnout for Durham's tethering ordinance hearing

"qehounds", you are hardly one to be giving a lecture on civility -- unless your idea of civility is posting a petition on pitbull-chat.com (what kind of website is that?) falsely claiming that support for this ordinance is tied to "TERRORISM."

http://www.pitbull-chat.com/showthread.php?t=13760

This pitbull-chat post also identifies "qehounds" as Natalie Rowntree. I well remember Ms. Rowntree speaking at the public hearing, but what she conveniently failed to say in her post above is that SHE is the one who "failed to adhere to the rules." At the beginning of the hearing, the Commissioners instructed all speakers to begin by stating their names and place of residence The dozens of Durham residents who spoke in favor of the ordinance all did so. Ms. Rowntree, on the other hand, did not. After she finished and was walking back to her seat, both the Commissioners and members of the audience had to repeatedly ask her to state where she was from. Only then did she identify herself as being from Stem, NC in Granville County. This disregard for the rules was repeated by other out-of-town opponents later in the night, including speakers from Fuquay-Varina and Wilmington.

So quit your whining, qehounds.

Re: “Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance

Hey ykw, while you're backpeddling, why don't you go ahead and retract this anthropomorphism as well. I really like it how you put it in ALL CAPS with an exclamation point: And while some are house dogs, some are kept in pens, some are on chains and are well tended, humanely contained and PERFECTLY HAPPY being so! You rock, dude!

Re: “Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance

"it also seems to have given you the rather preposterous idea that you can diagnose a dog's bark as "frustrated" or look as "miserable" and yet you disclaim your obvious anthropomorphism. My dogs are perfectly happy and healthy and many live on chains."

From zero to contradiction in 2 sentences flat.

So it's anthropomorphism to describe a dog as "frustrated," but it's a fact that your dogs are "happy." You are cracking me up, ykw.

Re: “Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance

Don't you just love it when someone starts out a post, "I'm through arguing with you," and then they continue to argue? qehounds, which type of dog would you prefer to be bitten by? An aggressive dog or a dog exhibiting aggressive behavior? Would it really matter to you? "Confine your dog in a fenced yard or dog run when it is not in the house. Never tether or chain your dog because this can contribute to aggressive behavior." http://www.avma.org/onlnews/javma/may03/030515n.asp

Boy, qehounds, it must really burn you up that the AVMA just won't scrub that statement off its website.

"Confine your dog in a fenced yard or dog run when it is not in the house. Never tether or chain your dog because this can contribute to aggressive behavior."

Re: “Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance

Wow, ykw, even if your not a psychologist, you're clearly a genius. The fact that two different posters spelled the proper name of an organization in Durham -- "InterNeighborhood Council" -- the same way (and incredibly, they both spelled it correctly), well obviously they must be the same person. Hey, here's something else interesting -- both you and I spelled "obvious" and "paranoia" exactly the same. Hmmmm. And both you and Sandi Coy spell her first name "Sandi". Hmmm.

Re: “Durham commissioners to weigh tethering ordinance

There is a big difference between the article stating "the American Veterinary Medical Association has determined chained dogs tend to be more aggressive" and your statement "Never tether or chain your dog because this can contribute to aggressive behavior."

My statement? Jeez, qehounds, can't you come up with something better than that transparent fabrication? That's not "my statement," that's what the AVMA said in its joint newsletter and it's what the AVMA website says right now.

"Confine your dog in a fenced yard or dog run when it is not in the house. Never tether or chain your dog because this can contribute to aggressive behavior."
