    They do, but that's more and more a rural thing too, my colleague says. The middle-class people in the city do keep dogs as pets and probably pamper them as much as we do.

    I became a vegetarian after seeing a doco on animal cruelty that also had scenes of dogs and cats being killed for food. It wasn't the fact that they ate these animals that shocked me - I grew up on horse meat, same kind of thing - it was the way in which they were kept and how they tortured them to death. The same doco showed shocking images of the conditions the cattle in Europe was often kept in. So I went vego. For a couple of years. That was almost 20 years ago and I can still remember most of the worst scenes in detail.

    I know, it's bizaar isn't it what we do to some animals without even thinking. Yet we pamper another species like our own children. In Europe there was (is) serious discussion on breeding livestock that has no pain receptors, so if they're being kept/slaughtered in such awful conditions at least they don't feel the pain. It's another bizaar attempt to make right what has gone so awfully wrong.

    Yes it is why I found traveling in Asia quite distressing. you only have to see the Horses and dogs. And the live-stock, well they don't matter at all
    Pets are forever

    Well, what can you expect from a country, which doesn't even give a damn about human rights. I know a young refugee who said after he arrived here 'I love Australia - even the fish have rights here!!'

    In all third world countries it will be the same though, look at India where they bash dogs to death for something to do.

    It would be nice if everyone treated animals as well as all the people on this forum do!

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

    I saw some shocking examples of stray dogs in India. Though to be fair, their religion does preach respect for animals more than most other religions. I remember in one day, actually in the space of an hour or so, being mugged by the cute looking monkeys in the temple who robbed me of the bag of lollies I had just been gifted there, being chased by a cow who wanted to steal the bag of oranges I bought to replace the lollies, only to have a big, aggressive macaque monkey come rushing towards me on the rooftop terrace and eat my oranges while I fled to the safety of my hotel room. Not everyone may treat these animals fairly, but they do often manage to co-exist fairly peacefully. Especially as most Indians are vegetarians too.

    Very true Beloz! and again I think it all comes back to socioeconomic class and then also what province or region they live in, lol they are all a little different in their customs etc from my experience with Indian and Chinese people (the place I work's biggest customer is in China lol). The pictures of the dog bashing's I have seen seem to be in slum type area's in India, where again life really seems to have no value.

    Haha sneaky monkies draw you in with their cuteness and then rob you

    The dogs in Bali are a sad sight all throughout the island.
    While i love the place and have been back many times for surfing trips i seem to be able to turn a blind eye as such to the situation for some reason.
    Ha ,ha Beloz. I know what it is like to be mugged by monkeys too.
    The suck you in with thier cuteness and then in a blink of a eye they rob you !
    I had one throw my hat of the cliff edge of a temple and another tried to steal my old walkman earpnhones hanging from my shirt. While i was fighting him off another took my whole bag of peanuts !!
