In the 'This Could Only Happen in Texas' department...

TV: So, I was watching the news last night, and a story came on about a man in Conroe, Texas, who was mauled by a pit-bulldog while out jogging. It seems the man killed the dog with his bare hands, trying to get it off of him. The guy says it was self-defense; the dog's owner claims it was murder, and her dog wouldn't hurt a flea. This is in the midst of the Conroe city council seeking to pass legislation that would make it a law that dangerous dogs must be kept on leashes, behind fences, etc. 'Dangerous' would be defined as dogs which attack other animals as well as people.

Erm...These are dogs, remember--canines. Carnivores. Anyway...

One lady, when interviewed briefly about the proposed legislation and whether she thought it would affect her own dog, said, "Oh, no, I'm not worried. My dog is snack-sized."

She hasn't known some of the chihuahuas I've known. (g) Scary little buggers!

Wicca: Imbolc was...instructive. I'll have to think about the ritual some.

Current Mood: amusedbemused

I always roll my eyes and/or shake my head when someone ALWAYS says, after their dog has bitten/growled at someone "oh, but he wouldn't hurt a fly!".

As far as i know only Nostradamus and the Oracle of Delphi would be qualified to make such a statement.

Surely (and this is speaking as a dog owner) all you can ever say is "oh, but he has hasn't hurt a fly before".

Soft as they may normally be they are still animals and they don't handle their issues with a rational debate :)

Theo--Yeah, it's basically the same old thing. Every time I see a story like this, the owner is just amazed that her darling puppy could do such a thing. It's like they've never watch a National Geographic special or learned a thing about dogs in their lives.
