The Dog Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

RIP Bobi

“The world's oldest dog has died at the age of 31.“

“Born on 11 May 1992, Bobi was recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest dog ever in February.

The purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo broke a record held by Australian cattle-dog Bluey, who died at 29 years and five months in 1939.“

They’ve been healthy on our table scraps …
(or is it, safe away from commercial food doctored up with plastics, drugs and recently discovered euthanized pets)
… for some 15,000, some say maybe as long as 200,000 years, yet everyone ignores the very real problems with commercial dog food. Sure, Bobbi must have been some sort of genetic time mutant, but he ate table scraps.

https://news.sky.com/story/amp/worlds-o ... 1-12990846


“The 38-year-old added that the dog always ate "what we ate" and was never chained up or put on a leash.”’

Bobi turned 31 in May,

World’s Oldest Dog Dies At 31: ‘Bobi Knows He’s Deeply Loved’


The “Dr Becker’s Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats: Simple Homemade Food” author added that Bobi’s owner Leonel Costa credited the late dog’s remarkable longevity to the serene and tranquil environment of the Portuguese village of Conqueiros, where they lived.

Dr. Karen Becker

Is there ever enough time 💔? I think not.
Last night, this sweet boy earned his wings 🕊️.
Despite outliving every dog in history, his 11,478 days on earth would never be enough, for those who loved him. When we asked Leonel what his recipe was for Bobi’s exceptionally long life, his response was swift: “Good nutrition, constant contact with nature, freedom to discover his environment, consistent veterinary care, and love. Bobi knows he’s deeply loved.”
Godspeed, Bobi…you’ve taught the world all you were meant to teach 🐾❤️‍🔥🌈.

Photography is great on all of them, but I liked the more natural look of the pile of pups.

As an aside, I find her art completely unattractive.

Damn, am I reading this correctly? Hey dog, ya got a week, but never you worry, you’ll be back. After we euthanize you and sell your carcass to china, we’ll buy you back as a dog food ingredient.

“He stayed at the shelter for a week, but there were no takers for adoption.
Four days before he was scheduled to be put down”

Do shelters that kill sell carcasses to China for dog food manufacture? I'm not seeing anything about that in the article you linked.

As soon as I figure out how to access my bookmarks on my iPhone I will provide the speculation.
Whatever the reason, there’s been a significant amount of the drug used to euthanize pets found in pet food.

I added china

Still don’t know how to access my old bookmarks, so I googled.

This seems to be all American made, you may remember when the Chinese put plastic in the substance they sell to us as a pet food ingredient. Melamine causes testing to indicate higher than accurate protein levels.

“Vets were especially worried about that possibility in the 1990s, when it looked like dogs were becoming resistant to pentobarbital. Some vets speculated that dogs were getting enough pentobarbital through their food that it let them build up a tolerance”


https://www.poisonedpets.com/20-year-hi ... ood-today/

“Two other terrible policies tell pet food manufacturers the FDA will consider the diversion of contaminated or adulterated food for animal use, as long as it’s not otherwise in violation of the law.
Even though the FDA is fully aware that dead, dying, disabled, or diseased (4-D) animals are used as animal food, the agency allows its use as long as it’s heat-processed (cooked in a can or rendered). However, if the objectionable material is raw then they’re in violation of the law:
“*Uncooked meat derived from 4-D animals is adulterated under Section 402(a)(5) of the Act, and its shipment in interstate commerce for animal food use is subject to appropriate regulatory action.*’
Which brings us to the the final insult to consumers, the FDA will not consider it objectionable if pet food manufacturers wish to use rendered animal tissues from animals that have died otherwise than by slaughter in pet food. Rendered material is the most likely source of pentobarbital contaminated meat in pet foods today just as it was twenty years ago.”
