It might not surprise researchers studying the capacity of dogs to sniff out everything from cancer to blood glucose levels. Dogs have up to 220 million olfactory receptors, compared to 50 million or so in humans.

I'm glad we're taking conjecture as fact now. :lol:

I'm just saying; if a dog ever wants to bite something off you, you should probably let it.

So it takes five humans to sniff out the same amount of shit as a single dog? Big deal, I'd like to see a dog drive a car.

To be fair, most people can't parallel park, especially if they're from the suburbs/country or under 25/over 65.

Police had to station guards outside her home because she was receiving crazy death threats and is basically the most reviled person in the UK right now.

She also used the Michael Vick defense saying, "I don't see the big deal, it's just a cat."

Pets with haircuts freak me out. It just feels wrong. It's a little more understandable for dogs than cats though. Certain dog breeds have some fucked up hair that needs to be controlled. If you shave your cats though? You should have your cats taken away from you by the Animal Services.

How you would you even be able to shave a cat? Sedate it?

I don't know, but I've seen people do it, and it's absolutely horrible.

My dogs hair gets pretty long and then it gets matted and he starts shedding leaving fur all over the place. The haircut had to happen but he's scared to death of the electric clippers I got for him so I had to use a scissors.

My cats have long hair, and it gets really matted and troublesome for them, and they shed everywhere as well. You know how we solve that problem? Not with scissors or clippers... but with one of these things:

You know, the thing that you're supposed to use to keep their fur clean, fluffy, and soft. It's a win-win situation. They love being petted/combed, they get a clean coat without uncomfortable tangles, they swallow less fur and have fewer hairballs. We get far less of a mess, and fluffy, soft, gorgeous cats to pet instead of gross, sticky, shaved monsters.
