PET OWNER OF THE WEEK

If you see a yappy little dog named Candy, leave it the hell alone.

(Thanks to Jeff Meyerson)

FIRST!

Is it just me, or does the second paragraph have something deleted from it?

See now, this is why you have to be nervous, not some peaceable little 200 lb crocodile...

The lady was right. In my experience, if you let a dog go after you've strangled it some and smacked its head against things, it'll bite you.

Ahh, neighborly help!

So the article mentions that 'Candy', the dog, was "traumatised", but says nothing about how Robin Bush's 10 year-old son feels about all this.

"My mom can beat up and strangle your Rottweiler .."
"nuh-UH!"
"yuh-HUH!"

this sounds like one of those Jeff Foxworthy jokes.

WOW Jeff..this is the second time you get credit..what's your secret??..did Claire Martin have anything to do with it???

If I was a dog I would want to have RObin Bush as my owner for sure!

I think Jeff Meyerson and Claire Martin are having the hot monkey love.

julietine ... just don't be a Rottweiler, okay? We like hearing from you on the blog, and well, Rottweilers just don't have good chi with Robin.

I never undestood that phrase... who thinks monkeys are "hot"? Jack Hannah?

a haiku

an indiscretion
traumatized the little one
dead dog. one tough broad

If your wife is tougher than the neighbor's Rottweiler, you just might be a redneck.

Hell, you just might be one whipped husband.

Give that woman a medal!!!!!

Was that woman previously part of an Eastern European Olympic team? I'm thinking mid-80s here, when the testosterone flowed freely behind the Iron Curtain....

That had to be hilarious for the neighbors. Bark, bark, bark... gurgle....

When wee Candy let out a yelp
Robin Bush rushed to give help.
The Rottweiler was beaten
Twas no small feat when
She strangled the neighbor’s rogue whelp.

"rogue whelp" - excellent rhyme. Also wbagnfarb.

I had to choke a pit bull off of my dog's throat a couple of weeks ago (you do it by straddling the dog and twisting the collar, tourniquet-style). As my daughter pulled my dog out of the fight, I too wondered what would happen when I became the sole object of the pit bull's attention. Luckily for me, my daughter quickly returned with an baseball bat. The pit bull is still alive, but he avoids our place now. I don't know if my dog was traumatized, but it sure scared the hell out of me!

Flash, glad to hear you're okay. Guess your bat was worse that his bite.

I actually felt sorry for the pit bull (afterward), as he really ended up getting the worst of the damage. It seems that our neighbors were using him in some illegal dog fights, so he was only doing what he was trained for. When I reported the incident, he was confiscated by our county dog catcher.

I had similar experience though not beer- fueled.My neighbor's Rottie had my dog by the neck when I, without thinking, picked the Rottie by the ears and shook it until it let my dog go.Fortunately there were no fatalities at the scene...

You have some very scary neighbors, Flash. Glad you busted them.

" ... citing police."

The newsies are even getting into the cop act now. They're (not their, or there) EVERYwhere1

Eleanor, Flash, and gail:

WAY TO GO!

Yes, Jeff, I'd strangle a Rottie that went after my Yorkie. I tried to strangle the St. Bernard that killed my tiny Yorkie, but I couldn't get a good hold on the bastard.

My Yorkie's name was Roo (insert comment here). He's been reincarnated in Zippy, which should make me happy, but he's reminded me what a trial Roo was.

Sigh.

OK, I'm guessing the beer had NOTHING to do with this incident. Did this woman live a trailer as well?
