Munchkin the Teddy Bear on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/user/CindysMunchkin Munchkin the Shih Tsu on facebook - https://www.facebook.com/munchkintheshihtzu CNN's full feature on Munchkin (Combining a Shih Tsu with a Teddy Bear) - http://youtu.be/_D6TtFmMSZU Munchkin is an adorable teddy bear dog who seems to love her teddy bear dog costume and has recently posted a couple viral dog videos. But CNN showed the graphic truth behind the adorable Shih Tsu's doggy costume and that is stuffed animal sacrifice! You’ve probably seen Munchkin the Shih Tzu Teddy Bear she’s the most adorable viral thing on the internet right now a dog in a teddy bear costume, Venturing to new places no dog has ever gone. You've probably seen her youtube videos. She’s got one video where she does a spot on impression of an ewok. And another where she’s exercising on her treadmill. She also has a Facebook Page, a twitter account and is on Instagram! I think she’s very cute but I want to ask you all something, is this animal abuse? Is putting a costume on your dog animal abuse? She is adorable… But animals aren’t really meant to be put up on display for our amusement. I like sharing pictures of my dog too and he’s cute and all but I don’t make him wear ridiculous outfits. Where do we draw the line between pet costumes and the exploitation of wild and exotic animals forced to perform for our amusement. I suppose a costume on a dog is really just as harmless as putting a costume on a baby and I suppose it could be considered conceptual if the baby or the dog enjoys playing dress up… given that the costume isn’t inappropriate. But If a baby or an animal is not willing to wear a ridiculous costume and is forced to wear one anyways against their will purely for the enjoyment of others then that is exploitation and should be considered abuse. What I find most shocking about munchkins costume is the process it takes to turn a dog into a teddy bear as it involves mutilating a teddy bear! If a child were to see their teddy bear being cut and ripped apart they’d most likely cry and get angry. That’s because we as humans are all inherently compassionate animals. There’s a reason why you take your kids to pick apples but don’t take them to slaughterhouses. We care so deeply about our companion animals and only want the best for them. But what about all the other animals? Isn’t the knowledge of people in other countries harming and eating dogs and cats both shocking and immoral to us? But if we say that we love animals and that animal abuse is wrong then under that umbrella statement we must also deem this to be immoral and wrong and we must say this is wrong too, and this is wrong and this is wrong and this is wrong. Just Because this looks delicious to you does not justify taking these lives in order to satisfy your taste buds. Why love one but eat the other. Farm animals feel to the same capacity as our cats and dogs. They think, feel, dream and lead emotional lives. We have 0 nutritional requirements for animal flesh and according to the American Dietetic Association, a vegan diet is appropriate for humans during all stages of the live cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, adolescence, adulthood as well as for athletes and may even help in the prevention of certain diseases. But bottom line is veganism’s not a diet and since we are compassionate animals who believe violence, slavery and injustices are wrong then we should stop eating flesh and stealing milk and eggs. We should speak up for all the innocent beings who endure pain, suffering and die to be food, clothing or for any other purpose. Some of you may say that dog’s are carnivores and they have to eat meat but that is not true. My dog Heath has been on a vegan diet for the past 3 years and he is thriving! One of the oldest dogs that e ever lived was a vegan border collie named Bramble whole lived to be 27 years old without the consumption of meat or animal products. Perhaps slaught...
