Michael Vick Wants A Dog

Posted in Opinion

Photo by PupandHorse.com Michael Vick wants a dog. Simply put: No. Certainly not anytime soon. After his conviction on dogfighting charges he was barred from having a dog until, at the very least, his probation was complete. While we at DogExplorer.com have a belief in rehabilitation, there are circumstances such as the Michael Vick case where the demonstrated lack of decision making; of knowing right from wrong; the absence of compassion and care for the well being and prevention of suffering of others, overrides our hope for Vick’s rehabilitation. In our opinion, he found pleasure watching pain inflicted on innocent animals in a manner close to many definitions of a psychopath (Psychopathy was, until 1980, the term used for a personality disorder characterized by an abnormal lack of empathy combined with strongly amoral conduct but masked by an ability...

Splash Dogs Size Does Not Matter – Hotrod The Dachshund

Posted in Dog Pictures

The Splash Dogs were in Irvine, California, over the weekend, taking part in the first ever Pet-A-Palooza event. Among the splash dog pack were the likes of tiny in size but big in spirit Hotrod, a cute dock diving Doxie. From the competition we viewed on Saturday, 16 October, 2010, Hotrod was the smallest dog in the water. While he did not jump very far he did seem to be having a great time. Dog Photography by PupandHorse.com Unsurprisingly Labrador Retrievers were well represented along with a few examples of Shepherd breeds, a Golden retriever, Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Pit Bulls and some mixed breed mutts if I heard correctly. Click the picture of Hotrod to see the rest of our Splash Dog pictures and please also upload your own, we’d love to see them. You can discuss the...

Supreme Court Hears Pit Bull Dog Fighting Video Case

Posted in Dog News

A man convicted for selling videos depicting pit bull dog fights, along with other scenes, has found his successful appeal in a federal court appealed in turn by the Obama administration to the US Supreme Court. The defendant claims the law used to charge and convict him is unconstitutionally broad. The Human Society of the United States and others say the law is needed to protect animals. Other groups, including the NRA, say the law is so broad that it would make the depiction of hunting quail in a documentary film unlawful and subject the producers to prison time. The defendant in the instant case, who was never charged with actually staging dog fights, only editing existing videos together (largely sourced from Japan where it is legal according to one published source), received a longer prison sentence than football...

Dog Picture: Splash Dog – Dock Diving Dogs

Posted in Dog Pictures

Photos by PupandHorse.com With Summer well underway we thought it would be nice to share some fun pictures of dock diving dogs getting wet and wild. The pictures were taken at the 2007 Pet Expo Splash Dog Demonstration in Orange County, California. What is splash dog? A very simple description is that it’s a distance jumping competition. Handlers prep or stage their dogs on either a real dock or, as with these pictures, an on-land man-made contraption with a large pool at the end. Farther is better – it’s all about the jump. Some competitors use classic retriever dummies to throw for their dogs. I’ve also seen more toy-like items thrown. Not surprisingly the retriever breeds are popular, like the Yellow Labrador Retriever shown here, but so are other breeds you’d find in dog athletic events like flying disc...
