It's when I read threads like this that I wonder if I'm emotionally damaged in some way. Though I applaud good stockmanship and abhor cruelty for me dead is dead and mines a pint of bitter, thanks.
Years ago when I kept terriers and had them die people would ask me where I had buried them. My reply of 'in a bin bag in the dustbin' was never well received.
A couple of years ago when I got married I explained it to my brother in terms of dog **** that sticks between the cleats of ones boots for 30 years so I might as well marry it, He was similarly askance.
Maybe I'm missing out on some rich vein of human experience?

Well, yes, maybe, Hen-Gen. Although its a vein that is often indulgently over mined!
