  1. Know the feeling Yep, been there got the t-shirt too. Thanks for the bullying guys. No value add to the thread but plenty of boots stuck in. Oh the irony - it seems some are safe targets but others are fair game. I apologised for causing offence. Seems that the DOL police have decided that they must serve up their version of justice. You win. I am leaving. There is clearly no place for people expressing concern about dogs anymore lest they be singled out for passive aggressive bullying. What a shadow of a forum this place now is. 12 years of membership and hounded out by a
  2. Hardly. People are allowed to do a lot of things even when a minority abuse that right or privilege and cause harm to others. Smoke, own guns and knives, drive cars, drink alcohol, operate heavy machinery, parachute, gamble, have children, etc. etc. We have laws so that people can have freedom while not endangering or harming others. When a group is identified as having broken the law repeatedly and it is having a serious impact on others, they may be targeted with additional legislation. Typically it seems to be a knee jerk reaction that victimises a lot of people that weren't breaking the la
  3. Really? Lots of steps are being made to achieve just that. Mandatory desexing is another step.
  4. That was never my intention and for that I truly do apologise.

  7. As far as I know, the industry in Tasmania is not being shut down. No industry is being shut down 'based on such iffy stats and figures'. The NSW greyhound racing industry is being shut down due entirely to its own failings. In the decades during which it has been operating, it has failed utterly in its responsibilities in relation to animal welfare. There have been plenty of opportunities for the industry to reform, but it has failed to do so. The opportunity to clean up the industry has now long since slipped away. So now we ban pet ownership because some people abuse their pets? That
  8. Most of my friends with dogs agree with those website reviews - more or less.
  9. Thanks for the info Anne. On this table I am trying to keep it very factual and measurable. When I first started looking at all these breeds it was around December last year and my first criteria was size, however I have further researched these breeds into areas such as temperament. Whilst there are a lot of dogs on this list, I have no intention of owning many of them, however I still wanted to put them on my table due to similar shared physical characteristics, as I wish to make the table as extensive as I can with these breeds. Do you have any suggestions for reliable websites that have in
