We rescued both of our dogs. Our boy was found in Southern Oregon in the middle of a busy highway in a box with his brother as puppies. Our girl was being fostered after being rescued from a bad home.

My dog was adopted from Central Oregon Humane Society in 2005. I'll always adopt.

I always prefer to save a life by adopting from a shelter. Please don't breed or buy while shelter pets die.

I think we need to adopt our own animals here in USA. Cant believe there are well meaning individuals bringing in more unwanted animals into USA from out of country though!!!

Adopt from US or world-you save a life either way-Why put down someone who is doing a good thing while taking a world view.

I've got 1 of each. The oldest is the pedigree, so I will likely replace her with another just like her. My youngest is from a SoCal kill shelter and is a llasa apso/poodle mix. Both are so precious!

3-4 million dogs & cats in the U.S. are euthanized each year because there aren't enough homes. I have and always will adopt. My 3 dogs are all rescues and they are the best!

Have always adopted for the last 35+ years and have always been more than satisfied with the results. Always Chows which have a bad reputation and never was disappointed after initial intro and train

I’ve done both. Had good dogs both ways. I have purebreds now, but I did look at adopting first.

3 of our 4 dogs are adopted, but my youngest is from a breeder. I wanted a specific breed, with a good prey drive for rodents and got one from Texas. I waited a long time to find just the right dog.

I've pumped my own gas all my life until I moved here in 2018. Waiting in line for someone to do something I'm capable of doing is inefficient. As long as it doesn't cost job loss, I'd rather do it myself.

That's the trouble. I'm too afraid to lose my job. I've made more money at other places, but this is the only company I've found willing to work with me on my schedule for my career training.

Absolutely!. It would get done in a more efficient way and more carefully because I care about my own rig and don't want the gas dripping on the paint.

Absolutely!! I have lived in other states for 65 years and always had to pump my own gas and I prefer it because it speeds things up. It makes for a much slower process having to wait for attendants to finish with 1 - 2 cars ahead of you when you could be doing it yourself!! Good to have the choice!

And, contrary to what many on the other side are saying, they are NOT taking away attendants for those who don't want to pump their own gas... just providing a choice to do it yourself for those of us who want to.

In Culver we usually do since we have 1 gas station and they only have 1 person working the store.

I would rather have someone else do it...too many years of pumping my own gas... plus, it provides jobs

The push for this legislation seems more rooted in the benefit to station owners rather than the general public. If passed, prices won't be any lower at the pump. Besides, not pumping your own gas is pretty great.

There is no benefit to me to pump my own fuel. I do not want smelly hands. If they get rid of the Attendants prices will not go down. We need to keep it the way it is. There is no shortage of people who want to work at a gas station. There is also no shortage of greedy station owners.

I'm an attendant. I doubt I'd lose my job if self-serve was law, but I don't want to roll that dice. I have the resume to work for higher-paying companies-I have before-but this company is the only one I've found willing to give me the time off I need for my non-college training for my dream career.

I work on cars 5 days a week so sometimes i don't like to smell like gas. I got my start pumping gas. Also, after working all day, i don't always have the energy to pump my own gas. And my dear wife has no idea how to pump gas and has no desire to know, so she shouldn't be forced to.

I have found throughout history that self pumping does not lower gas prices. I prefer not to pump my own gas.

When in third grade we had an exchange student from Scotland. We exchanged letters with what would have been his classmates in Aberdeen. It was exciting learning about people's lives in other worlds. I continued communication with my "Pen Pal" through high school but then lost touch with her.
