BuzzFoto Blind Item

Two girls, one pup. These sisters are famous, for different things in the industry. They both share ownership of a very noisy dog. When a neighbor put in several complaints about their dog to the authority one of the sisters, (the less famous one) tried to get the dog’s voice box removed. The other sister, upset by the idea had started taking the dog to a trainer instead, but the problem has left the two of them with a grudge against the other.

Who cares?!

Olsen twins?

Removing a dog's voice box seems incredibly inhumane. They need to read The Dog Whisperer and learn how to train their dog.

Ronson sisters?

Really? REALLY? What kind of monsterous a-hole would suggest something so ridiculous and cruel? Well, actually, Paris Hilton probably would. I don't know if I believe this. But if it's true, that woman needs to take a trip to the vet herself to be fixed so her toxic, deformed genes can't be passed on.

Anti-barking collars work really well. Dog starts to bark and gets a little zap. Soon learns not to bark when the collar is on. So effective that the batteries can wear out and the dog still won't bark if it's wearing it's collar.

What about those two Mormon sisters who make out with each other?

The Hilton Sisters?

Hilary and Haley Duff...

I'm pretty sure this is the Ronson sisters. I think I read somewhere they had joint custody of the bulldog. Why I know this, ugh, I am ashamed.

Jessi said...

Oh and also it is EXTREMELY cruel!

mikey said...

Sam has had dog issues in the past.

My first thought was the Ronsons. Samantha seems like such an angry asshole.

reticulation said...

I hope this one gets outed so that everyone can egg that bitch's house and car. And steal her poor dog.

Mango said...

I hope it's two Kardashian sisters and that it ends in a gunfight. *fingers crossed*

Mango said...

I have to add: I don't understand how actors, singers and other celebs who travel so much for their work are able to own pets. That can't be good for the dog, say, when the actor is only home for three cumulative months of the year. Take Orlando Bloom for instance. We see cute pics of him walking his dog(s) on the beach at Malibu but you know that between shoots, his home in the UK, his girlfriend's home in AU, he can't be home often. What kind of quality of life is this for the pet? And I'm not picking on Bloom. That goes for any celeb pet owners who travel greatly due to their work.

Tempestuous Grape said...

I brought my dog to my office every day for years. I work from home now which is ideal. I think if the actor/actress is well off they can arrange for their animals to travel with them, otherwise, I'd imagine someone is home with them. When I go out of town, Grama watches my babies.

timebob said...

please please tell me no Vet would willingly take out a voice box.

chopchop said...

Yes, you really can get a dog "de-barked". o_O

As far as Orlando Bloom & his dog ... I thought you had to quarantine your pets if you're going from US to Europe, etc? So his dog most likely stays home either with an assistant or is boarded.

sunnyside1213 said...

I once had a yappy toy Poodle. The vet said get him fixed and that made quite a difference.

Julie said...

i originally thought the duff sisters.

i could see hilary being upset at the other one for doing something inhumane. BUT is the other one famous for something?

Points to the Ronsons Sam's a DJ and the other ones a clothes designer for JC PENNEY.

NOT the ronson sisters. i know charlotte and she is a fervent supporter of animal rights, she is way too down to earth to do something that nutty.

JasonBlueEyes said...

Lindsay and Ali.

Just because.

crila16 said...

Ali's too much of a follower. Whatever Lindsay says goes.

crila16 said...

Hilary and Haley don't live together. Hilary is married.

Naomi said...

And de-clawing a cat is just as bad.

Texshan said...

Naomi, declawing a cat is not as bad. I am a huuuuuge animal person, but I am sick of hearing this falsehood. All of my cats have been declawed throughout my life. They've all been inside cats, so they never have to worry about needing their claws for defense, etc. Inside cats can be really destructive if they aren't declawed, and unlike dogs many of them can't really be trained to stop doing things. All of my animals are spoiled rotten, and I think if they could choose to either live with me without claws or someone else with, they'd choose me. They've got it made in my house.

Not true you can't train a cat. A spray bottle of water does miracles. And it's a whole lot better than ripping their claws out. *shudder* My personal opinion. Obviously, your mileage may vary.

MCH said...

Yeah, sorry I can't get on board with declawing based on the many articles I've read and talking with vets. :-/

There are MANY, MANY other alternatives to dealing with a barky dog (I should know, I have a constant barker). Not even trying before suggesting this stupid operation is just lazy.

Naomi said...

Thank you. I thought I was being a bit harsh on them. To me its kinda of like salting your meal before you taste it. How do you know your cat will wreck havoc?

How this started, was that I think that de-clawing is the same as removing a dog's voice box.

Thank you again.

MCH said...

@Naomi - Not at all. We've actually had this same debate on this blog before.

I'm not trying to bash anyone, either, I just really do not agree with the practice. My dogs and cats have all destroyed things in my house over the last 10 years. It is what it is and I wouldn't trade anything for having them in my life b/c they make me SO happy. A scratching post has been a lifesaver for my current furniture.

Mango said...

What Texshan said.

My cats are both declawed, my vet recommends it. As he told me, people adopt a cat and one $700 couch later they often toss the cat out. But, as he told me, you have to commit to keeping your cats indoors 100% of the time. I do, anyway. It's more safe for them and their idea of the great outdoors is my screened porch. And as my vet told me (and I agree) my cats have NO IDEA that they are declawed. One of my cats routinely sidles up to my couch and goes to town on it. I let her do it and then shoo her away after a moment and she thinks she got away with murder and I have a couch that doesn't look like confetti.

ixolite said...

Texshan, declawing a cat is cruel. That's like pulling your dogs teeth out, because it chewed on something. Stupid and inhumane. Over here in good old Europe declawing is forbidden and rightly so. (Same goes for docking and cupping, btw.)

You can't deal with possible damage a pet can do to your stuff? DON'T GET A PET. Duh!

L said...

ixolite - i <3 you!
I have had cats throughout my life, none declawed, and we just trained them not to ruin the furniture but to use the scratch-pole.
Also, you can just get your cats used to getting their nails trimmed - do it weekly and it's easy peasy - you just need to know how to do it [trust me if I can do it anyone can!]

a friend of mine in the US bought her first cat declawed [the procedure was done when he was a small kitty] and the poor animal still cannot stand anyone touching his paws.

having pets it's a lifetime choice, if you cannot deal with its consequence, maybe you should consider not to have one.

just my two cents..

Naomi said...

Doesn't that say something??? It's amazing to me that talking about ending barking by taking out box gets such a rise and de clawing seems a normal thing because your vet says so. They also make alot of money from doing it.

You also have to have the understanding of a cat, or else frankly you shouldn't have them. You can't go in thinking that the cat will rip your 700 dollar sofa up. You can train them as others have said. And so what if you get some rips, so you are going to punish your cat for BEING A CAT who hasn't been trained by you. I look at the side of my chair that has been ripped a bit, remember very fondly over the past 20 years all my cats who were CATS. Its like someone said that they wanted their cat to be a vegan like they are. The Humane Society said then if they didn't understand cats were carnivores, then you couldn't take the kitty. In most shelters you have to sign something that says you won't get the cat declawed.

It is also such an American mentality of taking a doctor's word for something without doing a little research on your own.

Written by Veterinarian, Dr. Christianne Schelling

If you are considering declawing your cat, please read this. It will only take a moment, and it will give you valuable information to help you in your decision.

First, you should know that declawing is pretty much an American thing, it's something people do for their own convenience without realizing what actually happens to their beloved cat. In England declawing is termed "inhumane" and "unnecessary mutilation." I agree. In many European countries it is illegal. I applaud their attitude.

Before you make the decision to declaw your cat, there are some important facts you should know. Declawing is not like a manicure. It is serious surgery. Your cat's claw is not a toenail. It is actually closely adhered to the bone. So closely adhered that to remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat's claw has to be removed. Declawing is actually an amputation of the last joint of your cat's "toes". When you envision that, it becomes clear why declawing is not a humane act. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. And remember that during the time of recuperation from the surgery your cat would still have to use its feet to walk, jump, and scratch in its litter box regardless of the pain it is experiencing. Wheelchairs and bedpans are not an option for a cat.

No cat lover would doubt that cats--whose senses are much keener than ours--suffer pain. They may, however, hide it better. Not only are they proud, they instinctively know that they are at risk when in a weakened position, and by nature will attempt to hide it. But make no mistake. This is not a surgery to be taken lightly.

Your cat's body is perfectly designed to give it the grace, agility and beauty that is unique to felines. Its claws are an important part of this design. Amputating the important part of their anatomy that contains the claws drastically alters the conformation of their feet.

Okay, so now you realize that declawing is too drastic a solution, but you're still concerned about keeping your household furnishings intact. Is there an acceptable solution? Happily, the answer is yes. A big, joyful, humane YES! Actually there are several. The following website "Cat Scratching Solutions" provides many solutions as well as and insight into the psychology of why cats scratch. You can teach your cat to use a scratching post (sisal posts are by far the best). You can trim the front claws. You can also employ aversion methods.

Adopted an older Sheltie from a rescue group in New Braunfels. The little puppy-dog had a number tattoo and had its 'bark box' surgeried before being abandoned. Ginger still barked, but it sounded more like a hoarse cough than a bark.

She never really warmed up to us but we loved her & gave her a good home. Never understood why anyone would do that to such a beautiful puppy-dog. I love Shelties!

Naomi said...

It is wonderful people like you who keep an animal even if it doesn't jump in your arms and lick your face. Everyone has different personalities, and how lucky he was to have you.

keks said...

A dog that doesn't bark is not a dog. A cat that doesn't scratch is not a cat.

If you want a no-bark dog or a no-scratch cat, than you don't want a dog nor a cat. AT ALL.

No animal lover can condone this procedures. They are cruel.

Think a MILLION times before getting a pet.
