This common sound-bite needs reconsideration
Either way, the animal is often simply ejected from the family system. It is one of those soundbites repeated so often that it takes on a ring of having always been true. What started to make me really wonder about the statement was doing research for my most recent book, Run, Spot, Run coming out this spring which is about the ethics of keeping pets. There would be at least 6 or 7, often many more, newspaper headlines about horrendous treatment of pets. Dogs left to starve; tethered to cars and pulled to their death; cats smashed with a shovel; burned with chemicals. How could a nation in which pets are family generate this much abuse?
In fact, it can be the very source of your trouble. So, when you look through tables of contents of books about animal ethics and animal welfare, there is rarely any discussion of companion animals and their problems. But the animals who share our homes need protection, too. There needs to be ethical scrutiny of how people treat their animals, what kind of care they give or, especially, fail to give.
The ideal is that companion animals are, indeed, integrated into families and treated with the respect and care that—within a functional and kind family—other humans would be treated. We should all be working to create conditions in which animals really, truly have this special place in our hearts.
I was pondering the other day, similar to the topic of this post, that all 'pets' in the process of domestication are, actually, psychologically or emotionally abused. Think about the general scenario: A puppy is separated from its natural mother against both of their wills say, in this often common scenario, a mother dog gives birth to a litter of puppies. The human family do not want to take care of them and decide to sell them and is purchased by another family. The dog cries nights on end in a room it has been placed in again, against its will.
It may or may not be admonished I'm only proving emotional abuse, not physical, at the moment Is called something it had no consent to being called, and is taught to internalize these random rules set by the owners of it until it conforms without fuss to the aforementioned rules don't defecate in the house, don't bark at night etc.
An incisive comment, and I agree completely that what you describe happening to a puppy--all very "normal" and part of how we do things-- is a form of emotional abuse. Coming out in April. Yeah, I'm reminded of Galtung's cultural violence when I think of that scenario as well as 'puppy school'.
