I found the following whilst surfing trying to find out what on earth the lyrics to “Who Let the Dogs Out” by the Baha Men is talking about…
“…For years human beings have owned other human beings. This was called slavery. During times of slavery, slave owners talked about the difference between treating their slaves in a “good” way and in a “bad” way. The issue was never, should we or should we not own slaves. For a more detailed discussion of this notion, see Valerie Martin’s book Property. You’ll find it to be an eye-opener.
The same issues apply to us, in this 21st century. We have conditioned our lovely canine friends to live under our rules. They are used to it, yes. They have learned to love us anyway, yes. But it is not right, no. Dogs should live free, should live lives unfettered by humiliation due to forced public defecation and having to walk on a leash.”
Should we send you to Dog Island?
