Folks say I’m irresponsible for posting pics of dogs with birds (aka Inter-species) because of the danger (you can see how aggressive this Golden retriever is:-)

In that 98% of pet bird deaths are caused by human negligence, should I stop posting pics of birds with people too?
An unusual family of animals is winning hearts on Instagram.
This has attracted over 77,000 viewers so far by regularly sharing snapshots from the life of one man’s pets: an eccentric but tight-knit group that consists of 1 golden retriever, 1 hamster, and 8 birds.
31-year-old Luiz Higa Junior of São Paulo, Brazil, says that
his golden retriever, Bob, is a little less than 2 years old.
In the beginning, he just had Bob, a cockatiel and a parakeet.
“Since the beginning I put them together to see their behavior,” he tells us.
“It was nice, so I decided to have them play together sometimes during my free time.”;
He then added more birds and a hamster to the group.
His photos show the group posing, playing, exploring, & resting together.
Facebook comment: Touch one of those birds and then you’ll see aggressive puppy.
Facebook comment: I love this post. People are so uptight.
Facebook comment: It don’t matter how much you trust your dog I trust my dog I thousand percent but even in play serious deadly accident or $1000 vet bill can happen it’s not worth the risk
Facebook comment: Animals get along, it is the humans that have the problems.
I had cats with my parrot, and they never bothered each other.
And your right, keep posting who cares what others say, you’r going to have haters no matter what.
Facebook comment: here is the thing about it…my birds will not and i say again will not stay around a dangerous animal…they love the dogs and seek them out…they give the cats a wide berth….the birds know the difference…animals can sense what is a danger to them and these birds in the photo would not have stayed there if they felt a threat….
Facebook comment: I think you are arrogant and opinionated. There really isn’t any real reason or benefit for birds or that Dog , is there?
Why can’t humans learn to get along together like this?
