Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

People Would Rather Cut Back On Presents For Family Than For Dogs

After all, in a society without a God who created man in his image, we lose all distinction between people and animals. And what human can compete with the unconditional love of a dog? My only comfort is that this article mentions only small-dog owners. I never trusted those folks anyway. Anyone who chooses this over this, or this over this, is a little off to begin with. If we ever lose our jobs or have to cut back, the dog is big enough to go out and get work to pay for his own toys. Heck, we could probably save on groceries by sending him out to hunt the neighborhood's cats...

P.S. For the purpose of this or any future discussions regarding dogs, the Jack Russell Terrier is the only dog breed under 30 pounds that shall be considered by this blog to qualify as a "real" dog.
