Tell me what would happend if you randomly saw this cutie in the middle of a field and decided to pet it.
What would be the risks of cuddling it? I assume he caries a bit if bacterias as they're constantly underground but i'm sure nothing deadly, right?

why would zoophiles and lolicons be disgusted, when they themselves are zoosadists and pedophiles? your logic makes 0 sense. other than that, I did not observe any of what you described in the furry community on a mass scale. It always boils down to "kero" and "rainfurest" every single time, which makes me believe that it's not a general thing. on top of that, there has been plenty of condemnation towards those both of those events, by furries themselves. You said that "they are sheltering these people", but when they push them away, you will say "oh well they're just coping, they try to hide their true nature", which is basically a nonsensical damned if do or damned if don't scenario whose sides both cancel each other out. Which leads me to believe that you've obsessed about them for a decade, and now you're talking out of your ass because you have this insane fixation

If a drop dead gorgeous girl was cooking you dinner every night and she never once did any weird fetish stuff(at least no fetish stuff involving animals), you wouldn't question it if she said she likes to draw furry art. She doesn't draw dicks and finds the sexual side of it disgusting.

If you are a responsible owner as far as training and control of your pet goes, you probably shouldn't/don't need to be neutering your dog just for the sake of it correct? A lot of the people telling me to get my dog neutered seem like really wacko leftist "dog mommy" types while a lot of evidence and information I'm finding on the internet coincides with what my vet said which was basically "there are pros and cons and the cons are usually downplayed while the pros are oversold...the main purpose of spaying and neutering is population control."

In other words all the people that are like "teehee it fixes behavioral issues!" or "teehee less testicular cancer!" are full of shit regarding the former and being ignorant or disingenuous with the latter because it also increases the rates of other cancers and can cause other issues. I've also been told "Can you imagine how bad it would be if you were your dog and you constantly would be looking for a mate and yet you would never be able to find one to release that sexual energy? Think of how much it would be suffer!" Which also struck me as rhetorical bullshit which put me off even more to the idea of getting him neutered.

I'm happy to be proven wrong because I want what is best for my dog, but all of the evidence I've seen keeps seemingly going against the common wisdom. I'm training him well and I keep him on a leash and I'm going to be building a fence in the backyard and never really leaving him unsupervised so him sprouting wings and dashing off to find is a female in heat is highly improbable. What do you guys think?

i would rather live a virgin with my balls and fap every now and then when no one was home than die a eunuch feeling weirdly feminine and longing for a cock up my ass, personally. so i don't see why a dog would want to be castrated. neutering is for dog breeders making sure traits that dont fit their insane standards dont get passed down. ie: a dog breeder will always spay/neuter insufficiently conforming dogs as early as possible to guarantee that they will not "worsen the breed" (read: improve it with genetic diversity)
>>
>>3760820
The problem is most people with dogs are infinitely more retarded than your average pet owner on this site. They will let their dogs roam without neutering and when they maul a child or another dog will defend themselves with a quick “das racis” before getting another puppy from their homie. So yes maybe you could pull it off but like gun ownership the vast majority are owned by literal subhumans who ruin it for the rest of us.
So just get your pets spayed and neutered so that we don’t end up like some third world shithole

You know, this makes me think the whole "well we need to prevent unwanted puppies from being born so let's take a cleaver to your dog's nutsack, I love doggos!" argument is sort of wacky as well. Is that REALLY the most humane way to prevent unwanted puppies? I feel like it's comparable to removing your dog's teeth or lower jaw and feeding it through a tube so it can't bite someone.

If you are really concerned about your dog somehow managing to sneak out of your supervision (which if that happened it means you're fucking up already on some level) and impregnating a female dog, why not buy some sort of "dog underwear" that allows it to still take a shit and piss, but prevents penetration? Surely that has to be the most humane solution for a problem that shouldn't even exist in the first place if you aren't fucking up as an owner.

Why do people think this is cool? Arguably the best part about having an aquarium is seeing how the fish interacts with it's environment and watching them create cool holes in the ground or seeing how they interact with different fish species. This is beyond the threshold for how appalling an aquarium can be.

I'm a furry but these are the most overrated animals of all time. Mogged by every other predator, out competed by what is basically a small wolf, and they're not even that good looking. It's just a dog that lives in the forest and sucks at not going extinct. Drop one (1) bengal tiger in the woods and all of a sudden the wolves are all gone. Gay.

its because dog dick sucks (harsh, quick, shitty sex with some inflation bs while holding perfectly still) so you know they're not in it for the pleasure and male dogs are shitty lovers (just possessive, violent, and prone to pissing on your stuff) so they're not in it for the emotional bond. so they're degenerate even compared to other garden variety animal fuckers.

Felines won that evolutionary race, as they're not only more adept at surviving on their own, but they're just as marketable and appealing to humans, if not more so. Although tigers are fucked, because they have humans down as a food source, and they're on chinks' list of things that will totally cure erectile dysfunction and micropenis.

Canines didn't lose, it's just that their ideal form isn't very popular.

Even though wolves are overrated AF, I still think they're amazing animals. Their "fans" are weird af, I knew a guy who tried his damnest to change his surname to "Wolf" for years.
The little autist even went to "meditate" in the woods during summer camp. I worked there back then, and was supposed to find him with my coworker. He found the guy literally barking at a rock.
When this happened he was 14 years old. I wish I was fucking kidding. no diagnosed mental illnesses either, if his "fursona" isnt counted in the list
