wow... hope that dog isn't put to sleep

They certainly shouldn't get the dog back. They've already proven how inept they are at taking care of it.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 2:23 PM

the bigger question is why they let someone with a dog into the venue in the first place

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 2:23 PM

the bigger question is can i eat dog with hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 2:26 PM

Why shouldn't they let in dogs, 2:23? But before you answer, first take in a deep breath and say, 'I am an anal retentive twit that loves rules and hates fun.' Ok, you can stop there you now don't have to answer.

Years ago someone left a chinchilla at the Knitting Factory, back when it was still in Tribeca, before twitter existed. What's with people leaving their furry friends behind at venues?

Posted by Roz | January 11, 2013 2:27 PM

Yeah and after you get your dog, go enroll yourself in a 12 Step AA program...

If it's some little pocket book dog, then this whole situation exactly sums up for good and all the morally bankrupt lifestyle of the Noveau New Yorkers who killed art in this city.

Whoever brings dogs to shows are fucking assholes. Dogs have way more senitive hearing than humans & loud vibrations will fuck their hearing up permanently.

Guys, 2:27 is most likely a dog owner. But not as much the fact that he's defending dogs being let into a venue so much as his overly touchy/bitchy/condescending attitude that dog owners are generally known for. Ever see how over-agressive and shitty a dog can act sometimes? It's a reflection on the owner (as with however a dog will wind up behaving anyway).

Fucking awful. Makes me loathe the inhabitants of Williamsburg even more. Yeah, take a dog to a show and get drunk while it's in your care, how alt and quirky. I seriously hope the owner doesn't get it back and it goes to someone who actually knows how to take care of animals.

3:07, has it occurred to you that your comment says more about the type of dog owners that *you* know than it does about dog owners in general? I have known some terrific dog owners in my life, some of the best people. You, on the other hand . . . it sounds like your peer group is mostly comprised of shitheads. You should probably try to get the hang of meeting and befriending some decent people and their dogs. There are clues that people drop, if they're shitheads. It's worth learning how to read them.

Killing animals so you can eat them is a behavior showcased by people with little intelligence and zero compassion.
And yes, it is very strange how many people feel its just fine to torture a cow, chicken, pig whatever for it's entire life so they can eat it, yet get their panties all in a knot that some dogs ears may have been hurt by it coming to a rock show.

This behavior is pure stupidity and complete nonsense.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2013 4:11 PM

"2:27 and 3:58 are the same person."

I'm thinkin' more 3:42, than 3:58. But regardless, I'll address 3:42:

3:42, I DID address that point briefly with the "(as with however a dog will wind up behaving anyway)". A well-behaved dog generally has a nice mild-mannered, decent person as its owner. But it seems these people are few and far between. And yes, this IS all from experience. What other type of analysis were you expecting?

And I certainly know how to pick up on people and read their clues, as I so indicated on my 1st post. I don't really see myself as belonging to any type of specific (peer) group or anything. Which I, in a way, consider good (you know, individuality and all). And to be honest, you didn't really have much of a solid defense anyway.

Being a meat eater, gives you ZERO credibility in having any comment regarding the well being of this dog.

So if anybody here is pretending to care, while snacking on a wiener or chicken wing, they are ignorant people with their head in the sand trying to remain blissfully ignorant about the facts.

Most dogs (if not, all) themselves eat at least some kind of meat. You know what that means, right?

Dogs and animals do not have the conscience nor ability to comprehend the horrendous act of killing for the simple sake of enjoying the "taste" of meat. They run on instinct like a lion or tiger. We human beings have a large brain, but perhaps you do not.

Facts: Humans evolved from Apes. We share 99% of their DNA. Apes are vegetarians. The human digestive system is not designed to digest meat. Humans are vegetarian by design. Our jaws and teeth are those of grazers not flesh rippers. Science has proven time and time again that a vegan lifestyle is also a healthier option.
