I agree with the OP, it is far too easy to get a dog. My partner and I decided a few months ago that we wanted to get a dog, and one of the places we looked was on Gumtree. Basically, anyone with the cash could get a dog. Sometimes the breeders/sellers were responsible and said they would insist on doing some checks, but more often than not, whoever could pay could get a dog.
Are you suggesting there should be some kind of basic intelligence test for dog ownership?

And you're suggesting what, or are you just hilariously parodying Angry of Tunbridge Wells?

More intelligent than the dog would be a good start.

Pigs are more intelligent than dogs, are you SERIOUSLY suggesting pigs should be allowed to own dogs? I don't know what's going on in the world anymore!
I'm suggesting that saying that there should be some prerequisites for having a dog (such as a license, an IQ test, you name it) that are somewhat stricter than those for having children seems a bit odd.
Fair enough. You know a lot of children who foul the pavement and indiscriminately bite folk?

Hell, get me a bit too drunk and I do all that myself.
Then you may need a jab or two.
Damn, I really want to make a little EDITED joke.
That's a great photo of The_Lhc, I never knew you were such a good photographer

Cats are not native to the UK.
As I understand it, both cats and dogs are domesticated from other species, and therefore neither is a 'natural' predator, nor native to the UK. Wolves may be native to the UK, but dogs were largely if not entirely domesticated in other countries.
