Global warming blamed for “bored” dogs in Britain


Add it to the list. No really. I checked the date. It isn’t April 1st.

The effect of climate change on chickens is just so… yesterday.

You have to ask the question: if these scientists were actually trying to damage the global warming cause, would they be doing anything different?

Probably not much… it’s beyond parody.

A boredom epidemic is sweeping through Britain’s dog population – and global warming could be to blame.

Across the country, there are reports of down-in-the-mouth mutts, and under-the-weather canines.

Leading pet behaviourists told The Independent that the number of depressed and unsettled dogs they have seen in recent months is unprecedented.

And they suggested that the spate of wet winters could be at the root of the problem, as owners cut down on the daily walks that are crucial to keeping dogs’ spirits up.

“I’ve been working with dogs for more than 20 years and I can’t remember a time when they’ve been this bored. I tend to see boredom in bursts but I’m seeing it chronically this winter,” said Carolyn Menteith [Twitterbe nice please], a dog behaviourist who was named Britain’s Instructor of the Year in 2015.

“They are just really, really, bored. People are quite happy to get their dogs out in frosty, hard weather but not when it’s muddy and horrible.”

Because, as we all know, the UK never had muddy horrible winters before 1990, right?

She – like many scientists and meteorologists – puts this down to climate change and expects to see more bored dogs in the future as global warming unleashes increasingly frequent and intense bouts of winter rainfall. (source)

The journalist actually put his name to this – Tom Bawden [Twitter – be nice please]. It looks like it should have been revealed as a massive practical joke – you know the kind of thing, get old Tom to write this cock and bull story about dogs getting depressed because of global warming, ha ha ha! – but, sadly, I fear not.

I think I need to have a little lie down now in a darkened room.


this is not an “onion” post..its real..somebody “well credentialed” said it..look at the evidence:

“I’ve been working with dogs for more than 20 years and I can’t remember a time when they’ve been this bored. I tend to see boredom in bursts but I’m seeing it chronically this winter,” said Carolyn Menteith”

oh well thats it must be true..

  2. These dogs should be taught indoor activities for rainy days such as watching old movies (101 dalmatians ) , painting , making things , origami – this is what I did in the wettest place in west of scotland .

  3. seriusly? ( same expression that bath-scale have write-on )

    When the Muslims take over the caliphate of Britbongistan, there won’t be any dogs to get bored.

  6. not content with spewing toxic gases out of their gulf stream jets..

    Warmist Billionaire’s Yacht Destroys Protected Coral Reef

    JANUARY 31, 2016

    A massive luxury yacht owned by Microsoft Corp co-founder Paul Allen destroyed most of a protected coral reef during a visit to the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean earlier this month, media reported.

    An anchor chain from the vessel damaged nearly 14,000 square feet (1,300 square meters), or about 80 percent, of reef near two scuba diving sites in the West Bay, the islands’ environment department said, according to the Cayman News Service.

    Allen’s Seattle-based Vulcan Inc organization, which manages his fortune, said on Wednesday that the M/V Tatoosh was moored on Jan. 14 in a “position explicitly directed” by the local port authority and that his team was cooperating with the investigation.

    “When its crew was alerted by a diver that her anchor chain may have impacted coral in the area, the crew promptly, and on their own accord, relocated their position to ensure the reef was protected,” Vulcan said.

    The damage to the coral, which is vital for marine life, comes five months after the billionaire philanthropist announced support for research to stabilize and restore coral reefs.
