I read this and it really messed me up. I love animals in general and dogs in particular and I'd gladly break the arms the individual who did this.

- Yes, cruelty exists. A cute chihuahua hardly deserves sympathy over the thousands who die heinously around the World every day.

I know they do and that a lot worse, but that doesn't excuse this kind of blatant cruelty to a tiny creature who has no means to defend itself. I'd sympathize with anything or anyone so treated.

Why read it? There are messed up people in the world. You can either try to fix the entire world, or ignore the bad in the world and only focus on what is close enough to home that you can actually impact.

- But you see, you decided to make a post about a chihuahua rather than a post about kids getting slaughtered. That's a priority problem. The whole affair is unsettling.

Chihuahua's are cuter (but not by much), lol.

I see this tendency in America as profoundly pathological. A sizable amount of people here anthropomorphize dogs, and idolize them to the point that this sort of trivial thing drives them into a real rage. I've literally heard people say, in all seriousness, that they hate people who kill dogs more than people who kill people because of the dog's 'innocence'. It's one of the social maladies in this country which just sickens me to the core.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

- So true. I mean they are freaking animals!!!! I once had a discussion with a member here & he was offended because I said dogs are dirty & shouldn't live inside the house!

I've literally heard people say, in all seriousness, that they hate people who kill dogs more than people who kill people because of the dog's 'innocence'.

- I am pretty sure they don't mind the killing of sheep, chicken & the likes for their own culinary pleasure. Isn't a lamb innocent too, or a poor little chick!!!

It's one of the social maladies in this country which just sickens me to the core.

- Nonsensical social behaviour. Dogs are seen as friends now! I reckon this behaviour is clinically pathological.
