Bad Dogs: Why ‘Marley & Me’ Needs Cesar Millan
It’s amazing how the modern media can help you improve your life. For example, you can watch TV shows such as “Dog Whisperer” or “It’s Me or the Dog” and learn all kinds of useful Pointers on dealing with your misbehaving canine. And then you can trek to the No. 1 movie in America, “Marley & Me,” and forget everything you’ve been taught, the Los Angeles Times reports.

These crush videos, dog fighting videos, or anything for that matter that shows harm to animals just makes me ill! How can ANYONE find pleasure of ANY KIND watching this sick filth!? I am appalled at this whole idea of profit from pain! When are we going to stop all this cruelty?!

As far as the animal abandonment is concerned I am sickened by this. How anyone could just leave behind their pets in beyond my comprehension. I have recently rescued a dachshund who was left in a home for 2 wks. w/o food or water. How is this possible? Starving to death is an awful way to die. At least at the shelters they have food, water, & warmth. Please don't do this folks!! They are a part of our family & depend on us, DON'T LEAVE THEM BEHIND!!
