Animals are always unpredictable. You might think yours is a saint and can do no wrong but that's when the dangerous situations occur.

From my own perspective its the lack of respect that I don't like. Its putting animals at risk for no other reason than for a dumb photo and that's unacceptable no matter how low the risk. It's a privilege to be able to keep animals and that photo is an abuse of that.
I dont think someone with a reasonable IQ would do it thus its a reasonable assumption that the person who set the photo up is probably an idiot..and there was someone with a leopard skin onesie in the background which seals it

What's peoples problem with leopard print? I have a leopard print onsie, and pjs, and trousers, and blankets. I'm obsessed with it, always have been, even before it was 'in fashion'. Liking leopard print doesn't lower your IQ or make you stupid, otherwise i wouldn't be a haematologist in a clinical laboratory. Although that doesn't make me exceptionally clever, just less dumb than some people lol. Leave leopard print alone

Ok I will concede in your case that you are not stupid, you just have really bad taste

I really disagree with this, the only issue with dogs turning is the way they have been trained or lack of training and not given the correct stimulation.
If I may mention guide dogs totally 100% trustworthy.
Having owned and trained dogs for 30 years they do get a bad deal pretty much the same as reptiles do.
This is just my opinion of course.

No animal is 100% trustworthy, sorry but that's absolute *******

I have to disagree to a certain extent. When i was younger I broke my foot and so temporarilys slept downstairs and the family dog would curl up on top of the covers by my feet. One night, i woke in the middle of the night and made the stupid mistake of trying to give the dog a kiss on the head while she was sleeping. Safe to say, it gave her a spook and she bit my face, and still have the scars on my lip to show for it. I got up and turned the light on and she immediately realised what she had done, and kept sitting on me trying to lick my face.

I never did tell my parents what happened as I was worried how they would react despite it being my fault, but it was pretty obvious what had happened by he wounds. But the dog was allowed to stay, and nothing of the sort ever happened again. It wasn't down to training or the way she was treated, it was jut because it completely spooked her and it was natural instinct to protect herself.
