    Well he is taking a 2 week break. I hope no-one starts asking about unanswered questions to him upon his return to then start making comments about him flogging dead horses

    That is all....

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I think it's a shame.

    Educating people on responsible ownership is the ONLY way to ensure the safety of the general public and everybodies children.

    What experience with dogs do you have clubsprint? How many years of training, education and hands on experience with dogs OTHER THAN YOUR OWN do you actually have? Frankly I doubt you have ANY at all - if you had you would know exactly why BSL will NOT work and why attacking ANY individual breed will only serve to cause a RISE in bites, not a decline.

    Dr Hugh Wirth will lose his position if he speaks out against RSPCA policy. Therefore his public opinion is in alignment with the RSPCA's policy regardless of his beliefs. Frankly I think the man is a weak individual who looks for any media attention he can find because he wants to be a celebrity. His time has passed and he should step down and allow the next representative for the RSPCA Vic to take over and fix his mistakes. I said nothing about whether he was 'good' or 'bad'

    BTW that quote you've just used is approximately 9 years old that has been dredged up to assist a sensationalist news article in order to turn more profits for the news company - well done, you just made yourself look a tad ridiculous!

    The UK's dangerous dog laws have NOTHING to do with the RSPCA UK's stance on BSL - the RSPCA is a welfare organisation NOT a government association over there - you need to do more research...

    Your personal beliefs on how the ASPCA is run seem to have nothing to do with reaity. Perhaps you should just as thoroughly discredit the actual lies that are being told to you, by the people you seem to respect. What proof do you have that the NCRC is (and I quote you here)
    I have already shown to be thinly disguised pitbull advocates pretending to be some form of unbiased independent body.
    That's right, you have shown a picture of someone with their cross breed pets.... Heaven forbid someone who has something to do with canines have pet dogs!! Oh the horror!!!

    You really need to learn more about Pitbulls. They were never bred to be aggressive to humans EVER - until ****wads got hold of them and started indescriminantly breeding them that is... But that's only been in the last 10-15 years since the government starting ranting and raving about them being vicious - funny that... Make a dog sound like a great guard dog then morons get hold of it. Are you going to call for a ban on the ACD or Kelpie or BC next? They actually hold some of the highest bite statistics and are renowned for their tenacity and it is well known how much damage they can do....

    So the AVA can't have a professional and educated opinion simply because it does not fit with your ranting and raving and slander of an entire breed? Funny how you're ready to discredit the organisation that ensures your own vet follows the correct standards and aligns themselves to a code of ethics to ensure the safe and correct handling of your pet - I bet your vet is a member.... Are his/her views irrelevant to you too?

    Join the MDBA

    There's the information on how to join... Funny you couldn't find it, I found it with two clicks of the mouse! So an association designed to ensure that people are doing the right thing when breeding dogs of any breed isn't good enough for your apparent lofty standards?

    Sorry Pugger... The dead horse comment was completely different when I initially wrote it.... Then I changed it, changed it again, got the immaturity out of my system, then was sad and cheering at the same time when I saw it was a 2 week break....

    puggerup, with all the respect that is due to a moderator I would like to remind you about the meaning of 'moderate'.

    adj.
    1. Being within reasonable limits; not excessive or extreme: a moderate price.
    2. Not violent or subject to extremes; mild or calm; temperate: a moderate climate.
    3.
    a. Of medium or average quantity or extent.
    b. Of limited or average quality; mediocre.
    4. Opposed to radical or extreme views or measures, especially in politics or religion.
    n.
    One who holds or champions moderate views or opinions, especially in politics or religion.
    As to the meaning of 'moderating'-

    v. (md-rt) mod·er·at·ed, mod·er·at·ing, mod·er·ates
    v.tr.
    1. To lessen the violence, severity, or extremeness of.
    2. To preside over: She was chosen to moderate the convention.
    v.intr.
    1. To become less violent, severe, or extreme; abate.
    2. To act as a moderator.
    If you were moderating, you would not only be targeting those that disagree with clubsprint, you would also be pulling clubsprint into line for his obvious attempts to bait members of this forum.

    But you are not actually moderating (at least, I have seen no evidence of you remonstrating with clubsprint; if you have tried I apologise, but if you have, he hasn't listened). I have chosen to ignore clubsprint (much to his chagrine) and I'd recommend that we all do this, but I think that you should be doing a more open and even handed job of moderating this forum.

    I have been a moderator on an American Pit Bull Terrier forum and I have had to deal with less than human scumbags who think that dog fighting is justifiable and a good thing for improving the APBT breed (a small but very vocal minority on that forum). I have some understanding of how difficult it is to actually moderate without being influenced by ones own personal beliefs and values.

    I do realise how difficult it is to moderate on a forum where all members hold passionate views. Hey, if you want I'll volunteer to be a moderator on here (and I am not joking here; I would be a good and fair moderator and I'd take some of the flack from you).

    Please don't think that I am having a go at you or trying to make your job even more difficult than it is already. I really am not the problem, and I am trying to be part of the solution.

    Anyway, my mother died yesterday; I am grieving and I am not sure why I am bothering to try to help on a dog forum but I am. My mother was a passionate believer in fighting for the issues that were important to her and dogs were important to her and me. My mum only owned cocker spaniels and pugs all her life, burt when she heard about BSL she said "What? Dogs like Hobbes are banned? How stupid!"

    Yeah, BSL, totally stupid and indefensible. And that is just a moderate view by a gentle old lady in her eightys.

    Regards,

    ricey

    My condolences on the loss of your mother. I have lost both parents in the last two years.

    If you had read other threads here you would know that there have been two more moderators appointed.

    How good of you to voice your patronising comments from your lofty pedestal.

    In the two forums that I moderate on it is in the rules that criticism of Mods or their decisions is a banable offence. I am not going to search them tonight so I will just report your post.

    Clubsprint has had his account suspended.


    I am sorry about the loss of your mother. I believe you probably need time to go through your grieving process rather than take out your frustration here, at me.
    Please step away from the computer if it is upsetting you. You need to give yourself space and be around people who can offer the support you need during this sad time.

    Whatever; I am not trying to have a go at puggerup here, I am simply offering to help.

    If offering to help moderators on the two forums you moderate on is a bannable offence, then I'd suggest that your forums aren't worth much.

    I have not bothered to report your offensive post.

    I found your post patronizing and rude and not helpful at all. I can't remember asking for your opinion or help ricey.
