I can say "Dead Dog"
It's one more valid reason for being able to carry a concealed firearm. Out for a walk? Bring along your dog repellent. Pepper spray probably just makes you taste better to the dog.
Regardless of how anyone else feels about it, on my block, I'm TOP dog. All other dogs are lesser dogs and they better not come around trying to sniff my butt.
any updates on the fate of the dog?
Billie, there's a video floating around the web of a mule being attacked by a pitbull. The mule stomps the dog into the dirt numerous times and a man is beating the tar out of the pit with a board or a stick. The dog just kept coming back for more. There's only one solution for a dog like that. The light switch has to be turned off.
It's impossible for a human to do hand to dog chomper combat and win in most circumstances. Imagine if the dog was attacking the man in the video and he's hitting it with the stick to no avail. Even a stomping by something as powerful as a horse or a mule didn't slow it down much until the mule decided to squash it and bite it to death. The mule knew about the light switch deal!
Hey Doug that video gives new meaning to "As stubborn as a muke!"
Lol Mark, mules are the coolest aniMULES. They're often put in with sheep and alpacas to protect them from predators. They take no guff and can dish out the punishment.
When we were kids, back before leash laws; we knew which houses had loose dogs. There was one nasty-dispositioned animal that would go after our ankles as we pedaled by on our bicycles. Summer days, we'd bike out to Black Creek to go fishing. Before reaching the house with the bad-ass dog, we'd pick up some rocks from the shoulder of the road and then pedal as fast as we could, trying to get past the farm house before the dog spotted us. If the dog came barreling after us, we'd clutch our fishing gear and the handle bar with one hand, and cock our other arm back with a rock. The aim was to hold off until the dog was right below and rattle his brains with a straight-down head-shot. If you nailed him good (you could tell by the sound), the dog would remember and not chase you on the return trip. I clocked that SOB with a rock the size of a peach. It sounded like I'd cracked his skull. ...Just shook his head and wandered back to the barn.
...Never thought of a gun. If we'd taken out the old man's cavalry pistols (number one, they were locked up) we would have gotten an ass-beating worse than the dog's bite.
Glad you liked the story, Billie; they were fun times. ...And I don't want to give the impression that I dislike dogs. While growing up, we always had dogs: setters, Labs, even a Rhodesian Ridgeback. I've rarely been fearful encountering a dog. While campaigning for village trustee (prior to recognizing the 200 vote rule), I walked up one resident's driveway, giving never-mind to his Doberman. The owner said that he'd vote for me just because I had the guts to pass-by his dog. I believe the two issues that affect poorly behaved dogs are owners who (for whatever reason) do not train their animals and dogs being isolated from interaction with humans outside the owners- which is essentially a form of training. It seems to me that people get real detail oriented when shopping for a dog and slack-off on the care and behavior end. Of course, you've also got the clueless who put themselves in harm's way, but ultimately it is the owner's responsibility to control an animal's behavior.
A package was accidentally left on my porch, intended for a neighbor. When I attempted to correct the mistake, delivering it to its rightful recipient; the woman couldn't answer the door. She tried for several minutes to barricade her dog in the kitchen. She finally gave up, yelling over the racket her dog was making, "He won't calm down; you'll have to go away!" ...A pretty sad state of affairs. ...As with another neighbor who walks his dog, switching from one side of the street to the other to avoid encounters with other pedestrians. He can't control his dog's aggressive behavior. ...Often wonder what happens when pedestrians are approaching on both sides of the street.
