clubsprint has a point. where do we draw a line? why laugh that someone's PET duck got killed? doesn't that duck have as much right to live as anyone? i mean that duck could have mean't the world to someone.
There have been plenty of dogs PTS because they killed a neighbours cat etc. I don't think your dog should kill anything without your permission, but of course you can't really help most of the accidents that occur, my dogs have killed plenty of birds and mice in their time but I have always made sure that they have no way to get away from my property and get themselves in trouble, like finding the neighbours ducks, or chickens, or batch of new kittens .... hmm i think that rhymed
... ok I amd babbling now
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." - Edward Hoagland
