    Default You Wanna Know Whats Tough?

    So I am in the small town of Nangus, NSW. Population 150. 15 children in the local primary school. Every person there is a sheep/cow farmer, farmers wife or farmers child.
    Me, Roles and Lady are spending time with my grandfathers on his sheep farm.
    Yesterday, we go next door(1kilometre away) to visit the neighbours.
    These are the roughest people I have ever met.
    3 Kelpies. 2 bitches, one intact male.

    Long story short, slit 9 puppies throats at 2 days old cause he knew he wouldn't find homes for them.


    Where do I begin with whats wrong with that....


    The 2 bitches arn't needed, so are never off the chain. 36 degrees, neither have water. I took the liberty to fill them up myself. Finishes it off, so I refilled. The male in still on the ute after being worked with sheep. Hips and spine clearly visable.
    The sad thing is, this isn't uncommon on most farming properties.
    My grandfather though, one of his are currently on a diet, he moves them into a shed when its too hot, and he gets angry at me if he doesn't think my dogs have enough water

    Yea, I hate the way that some farmers treat their animals. I would not have married into this family if there was ill treatment. Could not have done it as I value mine so much.
    I said no to a farmer who wanted a pup. I was told he would have a good home for her. Some farmer's idea of good home and mine do not mix. I investigated further and no way in hell could he have Jessie. I don't mind at all that they could be outside working dogs but freedom, water, food shelter and care are totally essential. My FIL has also twice now become a carer for 2 old dogs whose owners have died, spoiled house pets. They became outside dogs and Barney, a huge bassette lived happily a long time and Bonny is still going strong. They loved the farm. In fact, the box that the pups are/were in was his kennel. He and bonny never had to be restrained by chain or crate. All they did was lie in the shade, eat and interact with him or the other dogs.

    When I see differently I try and say something in the least confronting way I can and hope things may change. Luckily I do not go out a lot.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    This is sooooo sad. I'm lost for words.

    I guess they just don't see their dogs the same way we do and probably never will.

    Sad, sad, sad. Poor dogs

    Nothing ****s me more than that, the mentality in treating dogs like that MUST be inbred Saddest thing is it,s so common around the country on many, many farms.

    If I reported them, they'd figure out who did it right away.
    Its not like another farmer would.
    I told my step grandmother and she said 'well they can't keep every puppy"
    I exclaimed "Oh, ok,, how about they just don't breed them?"
    ...she went silent.
