Gomez,I actually read about Dog-Island quiet a while ago and I am not sure how I feel about it:confused:
The dogs will turn feral,I am sure and I am also sure many will be killed.
But if I could save all the dogs in China from beeing eaten and skinned alive for their fur,it might be a good place to take them:dog:

This is not for real. I found this awhile back and recall that it is fake, but can't remember where I looked to determine that. It's kind of a nice idea, though. Maybe parents tell their kids this is where the missing family dog went?

Oh phew...

I thought it was actually kind of mean - your dog is used to a cushy lifestyle and the BAMM! fend for yourself buddy!

I searched for a disclaimer but didn't find any...

Thanks

Somebody (or somebodies) has (have) waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too much time on their hands to put together a site like that. I thought they might be serious until I read the FAQ section. Kinda makes you giggle. Thatís right, Iím a man, and I giggle. ;)

I've seen this before too. It's kinda sad really to think of leaving your dog and 'maybe' seeing it again. :(

Would be great for all the homeless dogs out there though.

Oh thank God this is bull!!! But before seeing that post, this paragraph that I found on their site REALLY ticked me off! :mad:

Dogs never want to leave the island once they experience it, so you will not be able to have your dog again. You can come to the public visiting days, they are three times a year. Sometimes, someone sees their dog again. Usually the dog has either forgotten them, or has grown to resent all the years of captivity. Even with the sweetest relationship, it was always wrong for the dog to not be free.

Just goes to show that you can find anything on the internet. Mocha wouldn't make it too long out there....not with his back. And he's too needy....:D He wouldn't be able to survive without all the hugs and cuddles :crazy:
