    I think I've been somewhat 'toned' down in this thread andhave offered advice,some of it at least three times.
    But the OP continues to back off saying its not their responsiblity etc etc when it gets too hard .

    I'm glad the little girl is booked in for desexing but the way he explains his mother and the way the family ( apart from him) dont really acknowledge the dog let alone care for it....well it makes me doubt that story very much.
    And sadly we will neverknow the truth anyways,but I thought we could of maybe helped the OP in the future by learning some form of animal responsibility .
    But I dont see that happening either.

    All I see is "why should it be left to me" and " its not my responsibility"
    Yes, you've offered advice, and I appreciate that. I've taken the main advice and booked her in, so what's the big problem?
    Here's how I see it. Let's say you and I were room mates, I shouldn't leave you fully responsible paying 100% of the rent. It would be OUR apartment, so I'd take 50% responsibility in paying rent. If she was my dog and my dog only, then I would expect full responsibility for her, but this is not the case.
    Like I said, you don't have to believe my story, it makes no difference to me either way, but it's all true.
    That's the thing with the internet, you can never tell if someone is telling the truth, or blunty lying through their fingers.
    What advice would you give me to learn some animal responsibility, I'd like to hear it. Just about every post in this thread, bar a select few, have been along the lines of "OMG OP you are such an idiot I hate you give your dog away you idiot."

    Wow guys, I know sometimes it must seem like pot calling kettles but... everyone is being so damn agressive on these boards lately! Maybe my perspectives has changed, maybe I am just in a good mood? I don't think so though. Some of these threads remind me of rabid dogs.

    Take a chill pill. The OP has said the dog is being desexed. The greater majority of dogs owners do not think like people do who visit boards frequently and disucss and know the consequences of dogs that are not desexed, or wandering or whatever. The general dog owning public do not have a million discussions, debates and experiences up their sleeves to make decisions with as we have.

    Every calm down! I'd rather be a member of a board that was known support, good sound advice and great social contact than a board that is frequented by aggressive zealouts or people who allow passion to make them act in ways that would be considered over the top to a normal person reading their posts.

    Think about it! None of us is perfect. Most of us knew a lot less than what we do now when we first started visiting forums about dogs. Give the new, young and uneducated a break.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Thanks Anne, there has been a bit of advice given to me here, but all is good.
    You're right about most people being unaware of the dangers. I was. But it's because I spend quite a bit of time on the internet, if I ever want advice on something I'll sign up to an appropriate forum and post a thread. But this by far has been the most unpleasant forum I've visited.
    I would like to learn more about correct animal care. So I think I might lurk around these forums a little more. But it's because of the people in this thread that I am unwilling to post anywhere else.

    Trying to liken owning a dog to paying rent is a long stretch and to be honest quite ridiculous.

    A dog , any animal , isn't something you can just go , oh she's not just mine so I dont need to look after her today as I'm so tired/lazy/studying etc

    I understand that your family gives you little help,I am sory for that ( for the dog as well as you) but that does not mean you can just wipe yourhands of her on those times "you dont feel like it"

    Life isn't going to be so lenient when it comes "but its not my responsibility" For example,you're flat mate doesn't pay their rent. As you see it its not your responsibility.So then are you just going to be evicted forclate/no rent ? Have your name listed as owing on a credit check ?

    What will you do?

    Dont be so silly as to not post anywhere else on the forum.
    If you are serious about learning then say so . But the learning should start with the dog you already own.

    But if you keep giving the "its not my responsibility" line then what are we expected to do ?
    I cant sit here and give someone support for only caring for their dog 50 percent of the time.

    You just said that "Trying to liken owning a dog to paying rent is a long stretch and to be honest quite ridiculous," and then you go and use that euphemism?
    Like I said before, I think you're hearing what you want to hear, I never said I don't take care of her because I don't feel like it. I look after her as much as I can.
    You're failing to see things from my point of view. Obviously you are a lot more passionate about dogs than I am, and I realise that, but not everybody is as passionate as you. Sure I love her and all, but to me study comes first. I need good grades to get into the university course I want to get into, which requires a lot of study. That being said I'm not going to let her starve or anything. I've planned my life for what I want. Obviously it wont go entirely to plan, nothing ever does, but my plan is to move to Canberra after school and do an electronic engineer course with the air force at ADFA.
    I don't care about my dog 50% of the time, now you're being ridiculous. I've said that I can't look after her while at school. Can you look after your dogs while at work?

    No I am hearing you loud and clear.

    Congratulations on being mature enough to have your life goals mapped out and ready to go.

    But I dont think dog ownership is really foryou,sorry,but thats my opinion.
    If you cant commit to a dog 100 percent whilst still living at home then there is no way you'll manage when trying to live,work and do Uni at the same time.

I, for one, would not expect my children to make sure my dog is safe and well looked after. That's my job.
    He came here asking for advice because he was concerned. He has taken the advice people have given and is getting the dog spayed. Is there really any need for people to keep slamming him?
    I agree, the only way we are going to to help dogs is educate the owners and make them aware of how to look after their pets properly , we cant slam everyone that comes on to this forum that doesnt know, it would be counter productive, they would just disappear not knowing what all the fuss is about.

    I too have noticed this forum getting a little rowdy lately I think we should all calm down and instead of going nuts and go with our emotions we should take the time to explain to our new members and educate them. We may make an impact on some of them and they may change their ways we wont be achieving anything by flaming the crap out of them.

    Unless of course we know they're a troll then
    Lets keep to the calm informative approach and use the art of gentle persuasion and keep this forum nice.

    Unless of course we know they're a troll then flame away.

    Well maybe so, but I'm not giving her away, I've become too attached.
    By the time I've moved out I will have learnt a lot more from here, and I won't be the only person able to take care of another dog. I would love to take little Molly with me but that wont be an option unfortunately. But that's not to say that anything I lean in the meantime wont be put into practice with her.
