Absolutely. Judging is what one does when one comes to a public
for mum and puts one business out for the world to see.
You think having a dog outdoors is fine, I do not. Dogs are pack
animals and thrive on companionship from humans. I have yet to
see ANY dog get, what you so matter of factly, refer to as
satisfactory attention. There are working breeds of dogs that
fair better outdoors if they in fact are working. Others do best
indoors with their human pack.
I live with four, well-behaved dogs that respect my birds and
even interact with them on a limited basis. I am not so foolish
to think that nothing could go wrong, but to imply that you will
have a disaster if a dog lives amongst companion parrots is
All behavior is instinctive. Humans and animals all have
instinctive behaviors so can't see what the point you're trying
to make. If you're implying that killing or maiming is foremost
in their minds, you really need to brush up on canine behavior.
As far as being narcissistic, where did that come from? Do you
even comprehend the meaning of the word? How could you get that
I'm in love with myself. Please don't confuse judgment with self-
You are just as entitled to your opinion as am I. Unfortunately,
you speak without thinking. Have a great evening Paula.
