    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.
