What do you think the dogs would say? ;)

Don't get me wrong, I worked at an animal shelter years ago and still remember countless animals that I helped euthanize. That being said, if the dog feels no pain, isn't it human vanity to pass these laws so that we feel enlightened? And, just in case I'm wrong, I'm going to go donate $50 to the local shelter, so please don't flame me. Happy holidays.
