Am I being whooshed
From the FAQ:
The web site does not explain why there is a need for Dog island. Could you please try to explain?
Yes. I will try to explain here. For years human beings have owned other human beings. This was called slavery. During times of slavery, slave owners talked about the difference between treating their slaves in a “good” way and in a “bad” way. The issue was never, should we or should we not own slaves. …
The same issues apply to us, in this 21st century. We have conditioned our lovely canine friends to live under our rules. They are used to it, yes. They have learned to love us anyway, yes. But it is not right, no. Dogs should live free, should live lives unfettered by humiliation due to forced public defecation and having to walk on a leash.
So you can take a dog, dump him on the island, and hope he’ll eat by running down rabbits??
How STUPID an idea is this??? I keep looking for the punchline, but I haven’t found one. Yeah, some lady’s fat little shih-tzu* is going to catch rabbits to eat. R-i-i-ight. And when they get too old to run down rabbits, I guess they’ll just let them die, cuz that’s natural, right??
OH, and their products. Check out the “Empathy Leash.” It’s basically a leash with a clip on each end. You clip one end to your dog’s collar, and the other end to a collar you wear.
Jeezopete. Dumbass dickheads.

Looks like a classic web page hoax. “All dogs to be outfitted in thermal underwear made from rabbit hair” Heh.
Someone dredge up the kitten in a bottle link.
Actually, the shih-tzu isn’t supposed to be there. If you can find it, we’ll drop Dog Plissken on the island for a rescue attempt.
I saw that, and thought “Right. Rabbit hair.”
I’ll be happy if it’s a whoosh.
Definitely a whoosh…
And their employment inquiry email address is “
Worklikeadog@dogisland.com”, not to mention this awesome tidbit:
A very good whoosh, but a whoosh nonetheless.
What a relief. I thought it was a new reality show.
Ok, it looks like
Snopes has an entry for it.
I wuz whooshed!
Just to keep this pit-worthy:
I pit the folks who put up web pages good enough to fool people like me (who ordinarily aren’t fooled by things like this)!!!
