  • In more proof that modern scientists are bogus and with little merit, British researchers are now claiming that playing fetch with your dog is bad and leads to premature death for your pooch.

    As reported by the Daily Telegraph:

    Dan Brockman, a professor of small animal surgery at the Royal Veterinary College, has advised owners to use rubber toys or balls instead.

    In a new report, Prof Brockman catalogued serious injuries caused by dogs being stabbed by sticks they have rushed to collect for their masters.

    “When I see people throwing sticks for their dogs in the park I just get so frustrated,” he said. “I want to go and tell them to stop.”

    Prof Brockman’s report, which was co-authored by Zoe Halfacree, another expert in small animals from the Royal Veterinary College, details cases of dogs being paralysed after a stick stabbed their spinal cord.

    That’s a bunch of laughable hogwash, good friends. Here’s the fact of the matter. Since they were created 6,000 years ago by the hands of the almighty, dogs have been fetching items large and small. Growing up I had the pleasure of owning a small poodle, courtesy of mother, and a rot, courtesy of Dad.

    Not once did I see one of those dogs go down with injury from playing fetch, nor have life shortened in any way. I’m sure the case is the same for you as well.

    So what we have here is just another case of a scientist trying to push off their ‘findings’ on us with a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, when logic dictates that these findings are as left field than evolution or contrived endosymbiois.
