    Default I Can't Believe How Ignorant My Friends Are!

    I tried explaining to them the whole back yard breeding, puppy mills and pet shop situation.
    They refused to believe it.
    Im so flippin' angry.
    I gave them every piece of knowledge on it and nup, they are just to caught up in their own 'opinion'. Pffft, its not even an opinion, its just ignorance.
    Then they were asking why im so annoyed!
    They know nothing about dogs!
    Im surrounded by absolute idiots! My mum, my friends! The only person who I feel I have actually educated is my dad.
    Far out, doesn't my profession give me a friggin idea on animals! They take my information like I have no idea!!!

    Maybe you should take them to the pound or animal shelters and let them see the end result of puppy mills and BYB's.

    Some people are so ignorant and set in their ways, you just can't tell them and these are the people who keep puppy mills, BYB's and pet shops in business.

    I totally understand- most my friends don't have a clue over anything that doesn't specifically pertain to their job!

    People are interested in different things. Unfortunately we can not force education on issues that we feel are so important down their throats if they are not interested, even though it means so much to us, they will turn off. If we keep doing it we can get looked on as being a fanatic. You may have to back off a bit and just use a situation if and when it crops up to try and educate.

    Yeah, I know what you mean Di.
    But I expect this with customers, not my own friends.
    *sigh* Maybe someday...
