I'm sure that the Dog Island
site is satire, but man is it sweet dark humor.
The premise of the site is that the owners of Dog Island are rabid animal rights people who think that it's awful that people own dogs. Therefore, they want people to give up their pooches so they can live on "Dog Island" where "Separated from the anxieties of urban life, dogs on Dog Island are healthy dogs who live a natural, healthy and happy life, free from the stress and hardship associated with daily live among humans."
It has the greatest FAQ section I've ever seen:
Q.My dog is very high strung and often gets into fights with other dogs. I can control this now, but what happens when fights break out on the island?
A. Fights break out occasionally, but this is not a real issue, because eventually, the dogs learn to get along. Every now and then some dogs gang up and kill and then eat another dog, but this is just natural, and it's okay for it to happen now and then, but normally this is not the case.
Q. If I visit the Island, how can I be sure to see my dog?
A. You can't be sure. Your dog is now free, a part of the natural system of life and the world. Many people do see their dogs, and others just instinctively know that their dog is there, happy and free.
