    I am not saying that 'anything goes', but we do a lot of things to animals without asking their permission......like everything. When we stop cutting chickens beaks off, docking tails and ears and a million other things.....I MIGHT be able to drum up a little bit of concern about this.

    At this point, I see a guy who likes his dog so much he wants to do something cool for him. He gives him a good home and knocked him out for the actual tatooing. Not sure what is so horrible about this.

    I actually think it's creepy and weird and a little wrong. Not enough to really argue it through with anyone, or hold up signs, or sign petitions, but I don't really think that's okay.

    And all of those things should stop, too. We have no right to torture animals.

    I'm with Kyla all the way on this. I've never owned a pet without an ear tattoo. Tattooing and microchipping are standard identification practices, at least every place in Canada I've ever lived. Tattoos are done at the same time as spaying/neutering. Are we supposed to stop spaying and neutering because we don't have the animals 'consent'? Sorry, but that makes me laugh a bit. Wildlife is tagged all the time. Should we start asking the bears and cougars before they're darted if they mind having a tracking beacon inserted? How about endangered pandas that have their sperm collected in the effort to ward off their extinction from the planet? Humans do lots of things to animals that hurt, but many are in order to protect not only the animal population but the human population as well.
