  1. Poll: Re: What is your opinion about keeping pets? Poll planned...

    Well all those animals have been bred, whether that was as an "accidental litter" or as part of the "merchandise" of a business. But even if they don't end up from the breeder straight into a rescue,...

  4. Poll: Re: What is your opinion about keeping pets? Poll planned...

    I absolutely adore my 2 dogs, and I feel like a day without dogs is a day not lived. And yet I would welcome the day that there simply would not be any more dogs to give a home to. It would mean no...

    Re: What do you do to stay fit and healthy?

    Bloody 'ell sniv, that ain't half a list! You must be soooo healthy!! :eek:

  6. Poll: Re: What is your opinion about keeping pets? Poll planned...

    Through working as a volunteer at this animal rescue/ambulance service I've learnt to never ever trust a dog's road sense. 9 Out of 10 heart broken dog "owners", standing by the remains of their...
  7. Poll: Re: Dog diet info for Billy

    Hi Mike,

    thanks for that! :) I'll have a look at it later (possibly even have it printed off at work ;). Like I said, there is precious little information about vegetarian/vegan homecooked diets...

  10. Poll: Re: What is your opinion about keeping pets? Poll planned...

    Hi Mike,

    Could you please tell me where you got this information from? There is awfully little information about when it comes to a vegan homecooked diet for dogs, so I'm happy with any bit of...
  11. Poll: Re: What is your opinion about keeping pets? Poll planned...

    Sooo many posts and things that have been said already, and I think most of us will agree: having companion animals from rescues etc is fine, buying from the pet trade, whether that is a...
  12. Re: How do you all feel about animals in captivity?

    Would seem obvious to me as a vegan: animals do not belong in cages. The only exceptions I can see are rescue animals who were born in captivity and wouldn't be able to have a good quality of life if...

    Poll: Re: How long have you been vegan?

    Went veggie in '93, and then vegan at some point in '94 - it was a bit of a gradual thing, not from one day to the other, but I think I had it nailed within a few weeks. Never looked back since :D

    Re: Animals Like Vegans Better?

    To be honest, I don't think you can answer that question in generic terms. It's like saying "do animals like people with brown eyes better". I'm on a dog forum, where everyone loves their dogs to...
  15. Poll: Re: "Honestly: Do you think vegan food is as tasty as the food you ate before?"

    I've always been into cooking, so I was able to make pretty tasty stuff containing animal ingredients before I went vegan. What I found most exciting about going vegan, was that I had to learn to...
