What is the point of outside dogs?
What exactly is the point of having outside dogs? I don't get it. Why have dogs if they are just going to live outside? It seems like a lot of bother (poop scooping, food and vet expenses) just to always keep the thing outside.
I know that some guard dogs and working dogs are outside almost all the time but I've encountered people that get them as pets and they are "outside" dogs. I never understood this concept.
Am I missing something?
