I didn't know they had those. I thought they just had trained dogs who'd go get help or something. Dogs really are amazing.
I guess they can sense somehow that a person is going to have a seizure and are supposed to bark, whine, alert them somehow, then the person can get to a safer place or something before it happens. I dont understand it a whole lot but I just know what Ive heard about those dogs.

True, to a point, but I ask you, if you went to a store at this time of year and asked one of the people working there if they thought people or dogs are more amazing, what do you think they'd say?

They would say dogs. Sorry, for answering.

People can be amazing yes, but animals also can, some can do things people just can't, like a dog's sense of smell is much much more than a human's and they can hear frequencies we just can't.

Well I would consider them pretty idiotic then.

Well sure, but overall I think we can both agree that the human race can do far more amazing things than any other species.

I agree with Drakow. Overall, animals are just there to be either eat or be eaten, no other reason. And while they can do many things that we can't, the list is far longer if you look at all the things we as a species can do.

Well, I think animals are amazing but then again, I love animals and like learning about them and am fascinated by them. I like them more than people to be honest ^^;

I can understand being fascinated by them, but I don't understand how you can possibly find them more interesting than people, who actually can hold a conversation with you and speak to you. But that's just me.

Well people can be cruel to you, they can say things to you to hurt your feelings. Thats happened to me a lot in my life by many people. Animals have never done that, they never make fun of you, they dont care what kind of day you've had, they arent going to make it worse for you on purpose, and are always happy to see you. I really appreciate that I have that kind of companionship with my pets. Humans can do bad things,on purpose and they often do. I know they can do good things too, but this is my experience.

I find it hard to understand people and all the things they do its too complicated and I find I dont really identify with a lot of people and dont really think Im a lot like others.

The only reason (at least in my experience) for animals always being happy is because you are carrying food or water or something else they want/need whenever you see them, lol.

My cat will cuddle with me even when not hungry or something she'll go hang out with my family because she likes being around people. Heck at my mom's Christmas party she even let some people pet her and she's usually so shy, she likes people. Sometimes pets just like companionship.

I miss having an animal around. They're always loyal and you can love them just like any other family member.

Well, until you have to move and give up your animals. :c Hopefully when I get on my own I'm going to get another dog. I miss having a friend around the home all the time.

Im lucky to have my cat. I had another cat before her and he was such a nice kitty, I think I was his favorite, I really missed him when he ran away and we assume died. It wouldnt feel right to me to have no pets.

I never could have an animal around because of my allergies. I know my parents had to give away their dog, and maybe their cat too once they had testing done on me and found out that the animals really affected my allergies. I couldn't even visit some relatives because their pets would send me into an asthma attack.

Never had any pets, although I work at the zoo so I get to see plenty of animals there whenever I'm there. Some of my friends own a wide variety of reptiles which I think is pretty cool.

I think Doomsday will only occur on the Mayan's timezone, so you can't expect it to happen in the morning on a different timezone.

Well both sides regarding Dec. 21 do have excellent points. On one side, the Mayan forgot about leap years, but on another side, the calender is said to have predicted 9/11 and the earthquake in Japan.

Honestly, if everyone believed what the Mayans, and other ancient civilizations said we would all be dead right now.

I agree with this, nothing is happening at all.

But yeah Pinkie, interesting theory about 9/11 and the March 2011 earthquake/tsunami in Japan.

I don't see why anything should happen really. Unless we're all suddenly wiped out in a second?

Maybe the "Satellite" was really a Nuclear Bomb and we're all going to DIE.
