So I'm at work yesterday and a friend/coworker of mine and I are talking about vet bills, she's saying how much she just spent on her lab, I'm telling her about my bc's broken toe, and we're talking about the company's pet insurance, whether it's worth it. This guy we work with jumps in and says if his dog got sick he would just shoot it. Ok, so we live in north georgia and I hear this sometimes. I let it go...we keep talking and he jumps in again and says his dog lives outside and just roams. Ok, I hear this sometimes too....THEN he says he doesn't feed it or give it water, that it hunts for its food and drinks from the stream. And he only sees it every 3 or 4 days. And he says not to worry, its healthy, it comes when he calls it, he gives it attention, etc. He says he doesn't want to feed it because then it will become dependant on him. I tell him I would bet money that its not hunting, someone else is feeding it, and as far as I'm concerned it's not his dog, that it's a stray that hangs around his house. Well, now my friend says she is going to his house and is going to take the dog, and of course we all know stealing is wrong, but he would definitely have a hard time saying that was ever his dog I think. Really weird situation.
