Walnut the Whippet

Recommended Posts

Good point. This is all about the man, not the dog. He's too craven to do the right thing and euthanise the animal straight away.

I was shocked when I saw on tv that he was carrying the poor dog around the beach and exposing it to the people and dogs while it was showing clear signs of stress. Poor Walnut.

Oh :mellow:  I thought this was a good news story.

This was mentioned on the local radio listings earlier in the week in amongst the coffee mornings and bring and buy sales.  It wasn't given any prominence.

Then by Saturday it's on the national news.

Good point, I thought it was a bit odd.

 

But then I guess we like to take the contrarian point of view on a lot of things here.

Actually, BossyBottom was reading more into my OP than I actually intended. I was just making a stupid joke.

every animal I have  had put down I have made sure the last day is exactly like any other. I thought this Walnut beach walk was cruel. As Bossybabe said, it was all for the people and FB attention, and nothing for the dog.

My biggest failing: overthinking. :rolleyes:

Possibly because most of us are smarter than the average bear!

I thought the same as many of you.  Might have been some comfort for the bloke, but I doubt the dog will have any idea why hundreds of people suddenly turned up and wanted to pet it etc or derived much pleasure from it either. Just put the poor sod down asap FFS.

Walnut was given his name because his turds looked like whalnut whips. Without the nut on top, obviously.

I thought it was something to do with pizzagate.

I'm calling "shenanigans" on this story as it claims the gadgie is from Cornwall..!

Everyone knows that whippets are only owned by Northerners...

Whippets do that when in full health ...the most nervous dogs on the planet ...apart from the ones that earn their keep

Whippets are lovely, and they can sleep on my bed. Since it's a full f8gging supermoon, I get the dog basket in the kitchen

Same kind of attitude as that woman who recorded her 8 year old in tears for voting trump i.e. using whatever you can for social media likes.

I owned on for 17 years from age 6 weeks. He only did that when stressed or scared. He wasn't a nervous dog.

I found the whole non story quite mawkish.

Healthy dogs are impounded daily, and I would assume subsequently euthanised in time.  This dog had reached the end of its life!

A British media doggy story, when there are far more significant problems out there!
