want to know
Noises from a chainsaw at 8 a.m. in the morning blows my mind, especially since my dogs are not allowed to bark at all.
I hate to say it, but who has rights in this world? And why? And who makes up the rules?
Dogs don’t have any rights in this world.
So why are we allowed to have them?
They are not allowed to do their natural thing in life — if you have not noticed, they bark.
I look at our flag. It has a dog on it. Why?
Is it to symbolize what? That we allow dogs to live here?
We use them as a big hit to Yukon tourism, but we don’t allow them to do their natural stuff.
Dogs are territorial and they bark. But, yet, we don’t allow them to bark when people approach our homes and encroach on our territory.
They are not allowed to do anything to alert us there is someone around.
They are just supposed to sit there like good kids.
I would love my dogs to talk, but they don’t do that. I wish they had inside voices at times, but they don’t.
I see cats run free and they catch birds.
I see the raven that sits in the backyard — all it does all day long sometimes is caw.
I see the squirrels in the tree and all they do all day long is chatter.
Nobody bothers them.
Somebody can come by and use a chainsaw in your backyard at 8 a.m. and nothing is said to him/her about their noise.
But a dog is not allowed to bark.
This is the Yukon and, if you can get used to other Yukon effects, why not the dogs?
