Dog lovers are outraged by an opinion piece that refers to dogs as & # 39; parasites & # 39;

An opinion article published by San Diego Union-Tribune calling dogs "parasites" is getting a very bad reaction online. Probably because it is a terrible shot.

The first half of Chris Reed's editorial, "Let's be honest, the United States: dogs are parasites, not man's best friend," suggests that humans love their dogs too aggressively. A good point. The spa services for dogs referred to in the piece are probably wasted on our canine companions.

But then the piece takes a dark turn. Dogs, Reed argues, are "parasites" that force humans to feed and care for them with their adorable antics. To make this point incorrect, Reed makes reference to Stephen Budiansky 1999 "The Truth About Dogs", which holds that various canine manipulation tactics are to blame for our love for these hairy deadbeats.

Twitter for dogs was not happy.

Shortly after the Reed opinion article was published, Morris Refuge Animal in Philadelphia tweeted in Union-Tribune urging the publication to help find homes for adoptable dogs as a penance.

"The sweet adoptable child Comet has no idea that this piece says it is a parasite," says the Morris Animal Refuge tweet. "So he's happily smiling his big silly smile, @sdutIdeas.The least you can do is RT to help him find a loving home!"

It seems that Reed knew that negative attention was coming.

"More than the account when I will receive my first angry Twitter response in this column: in eight minutes," Twitter tweeted.

And the angry answers he received.

Dog lovers took to Twitter to defend their good boys and girls and to express their anger and dismay for the column.

Our problem is that there are not enough

Actually read the article, just because And the premise is ridiculous. It says that our dogs cheat us to look at them. I like it, okay? They still make me infinitely happy, who cares if they "use" us? OPEN INVITATION FOR EVERY DOG TO COMMIT ME TO LOVE IT

Some even joked that feline reporters were to blame from the article. A hard, but legitimate badumption.

That's why you do not let cats write for your newspaper.

Sure, dogs probably are parasites, but only in the same way that avocados are a fruit. Nobody cares, and it does not matter.

If each parasite were a dog, the world would be a better place in my humble opinion. And if you have the opportunity, cuddle up with your favorite parasite this weekend and let them take you to a happier state of existence.
