I am starting to think that way listening to your view...

Wait..what?  Listening to *my* view on what?  ::headscratch::

but what I was trying to say with that is that you are comparing two issues that don't really relate.  people and animals are two separate things.

Exactly, you are so twisted up over dogs dying and God being cruel because of that, but people dying, nah, no biggie.  

. I didn't say animals should never die.  I said at the beginning of this post in the case of dogs, that 15 years is a cruel life span.  

Why?  Why is 15 years a cruel life span?  Why stop there?  There are creatures that only live a matter of months for heavens sake.  If you're gonna judge God, just go all the way with it...

I rather see 1000 adults die as apposed to even 5 animals.

 ::eek::

Stranger and stranger still.  ::eatingpopcorn:

why are you so stuck on dogs. I mention dogs cause I have them.  would you feel more comfy if I mentioned the lizards I have had, or the numerous cats through out the years, maybe the parakeets I have had, or even the snake I have now?  why should any of them have to die so early if they are loved my original issue was why can't animals have a lifespan closer to us... if you take horses at least they are close as I believe they have a life span of about 50 years. (if mistaken please correct me.)

You are the one who brought dogs up...not me...

true.   ::tippinghat:: ::nodding:: but that is because at this moment all I have at home is a dog.  so sue me for using an example that fits for me.  ::smile::

I know what gillandro is saying as I feel the same way.
Why do they have a smaller life span than we do.
Why do we have our hearts broken or  our kids heart broken because  we have to see them die
like my kitten , my kitten  only lasted a week. She was only a few moths old  so why take the animals and the joy they gave us away.
Of course its sad when humans die as well but they live past 13 yrs. why take away our joy in life, why did god set a small amount of years to them and not to us.
its like the hot dog to bun  question why so many buns when we have so little  hot dogs in the package.

How about this to wonder about as this has gotten me so down i was about to cry.
According to the bible...
We are "ALL gods children. We are ALL his lambs as he is our shepard.
 But when I wanted to get my daughter  christened (and yes I am a believer but somethings  make me question) 
I wanted my oldest sister(Since my older sister  was my first borns  god mother)  to be my youngest daughter's god mother but they refused one of gods children because she was divorced and  remarried  by justice of the peace. What is the difference if she is remarried or not?
She is catholic just like myself,  we all had the same sacrements, we all believe but because her ex husband was an **badword** and  a cheater  and gotten a divorce, she couldnt  be god mother to my daughter.
 That day i cried as Since i was a young girl I just wanted her to be my daughters god mother.
Was my sister supposed to stay unhappy and miserable to be accepted?  Is it in gods plan to stay miserable and unhealthy?
So  my sister had to stay misterable in order to be my daughters god mother.   Well we are smarter, she may not be  her godmother in your eyes but she is her godmother in our eyes and she is one of the best I ever known. ::preachit::

So, you never seen a documentary on Discovery Channel or Animal Planet then? Because an rudimentary knowledge of zoology proves the above statement false.

Two questions:
Have you hung around animals much???? My dogs will turn on each other over the chance one has a bigger treat then them, my cats will beat the crap out of each other for a spot on the couch, my chickens pick at each other for NO reason at all etc.

And

What kind of people are you spending time with???
