These containers are twice the size of those little ones, and leave a stain that's visible in black light. The other times the dogs backed down when I screamed at them. I like dogs, but not when they are running at you in a raging fit to bite the dogs I'm walking. Homie don't play that. I'm responsible for these little guys, and have to protect them.
Youíre a good neighbor😊

A couple of times when we had friends or family over for a bbq, someone brought a dog. I like dogs but I donít want them near my kitties no matter if the owner tries to tell me the dog ďlikes catsĒ. Iím not taking any chances and my baby girl is afraid of them anyway (which Iím glad about cause she runs upstairs and hides). Once one of my fianceís friends kept insisting on letting his dog and my cat interact even though she was afraid. and I refused and wouldnít let her out of my arms. They thought I was being too overprotective. They seemed like sweet enough dogs but you never know how theyíll be with other animals especially one that is afraid and hissing.

The dogs killed a beautiful young woman, but their hearts are with the dogs. Their hearts are always with dogs. Utterly irrational and yet considered perfectly normal by most. At least most expressing a viewpoint.

But, on the bright side, I see lots more sanity in this thread than I'm accustomed to seeing on topics like this. Dogs and their sociopathic owners drag down quality of life in every neighborhood in which they are found. It sure is refreshing to see more here who understand that.

Justice in a world with a sane perspective on the menace that dogs are would have all of these dogs dead (hopefully they already are) and their owners behind bars for life.
So you are for the extermination of all dogs due to the behavior of a small percentage? That was clearly your message in a previous post. Would that apply to young African American males as well? How about cars, should we ban them due to accidents that can happen on rare occasions?

I may have to research your post history to see if you are as bat schitt crazy as this opinion is.

They clearly never bothered to train these dogs and didnít care if they ran loose. I can only imagine what their kids are like.
I swear....if I see this garbage one more time....

We went to great expense to eliminate malarial mosquitoes, a tiny percentage of which killed people. Nobody wept for the cute skeeters and tried to defend them. And many states do ban all cars that can be shown to be prone to accidents. And we ban from the road all wild cars, that are not under the control of responsible humans.


Take care of your dog and make it behave and keep it out of my face, and I won't try to kill it.

If the cat simply runs and hides, as cats due when strange humans show up as well, I don't see the problem with the dog visiting.

As for the story of the neighbor needed mace is it really common to see dogs running loose? That is crazy and all on the owner. We live in a rural area here, and I know this is more common in rural areas, but the only loose dogs I have seen are captured by passing motorists (including us) and the owners are found as we all know owners don't want their dogs running loose.

This is a horrible story, and I'd never own a pit bull.

However...

My pug has no goal in life, no purpose, other than to crawl up next to you and snuggle. He prefers under the covers. He wouldn't hurt a fly. Pugs literally do nothing but want to be as close to their master as possible. If I laid in bed for 24 hours straight he wouldn't move.

I think people who have no pets or don't like them are weird, but that's just me.
Yep, that's just you, alright.

The topic is DOGS, not pets.

Typically....you haven't given an ounce of thought to what you just said.

Yeah, dogs are wonderful animals....if only you make the major investment of time and effort to prevent them from being bad. To prevent them from being themselves.

Good grief...................

I live in a county and community where dogs are supposed to be on a leash when they are being walked. Most people comply but I have one neighbor who just can't seem to follow the rules. Just this morning his unleashed dog approached me and put his nose up against my kneecap. The owner retrieved the dog and apologized even though this is the second time this has happened. Given that we are moving soon I decided not to make an issue of this even though I did report it to my neighbor who is on the HOA board. I've been an avid walker for 40 years and I've been bitten 3 times. Once by a Boxer, once by a Weimaraner, and once by a mixed breed. I carry mace with me but no amount of mace would stop 3 vicious dogs. Even a handgun wouldn't be sufficient if you were not fast enough with it. I realize how much people love their dogs and most people do take proper care of them. However, we've all met people in life who use their dogs as a power symbol. They delight in scaring the wits out of innocent people. It truly saddens me that this young woman was killed. Nothing will bring her back but I do hope the owners of these dogs spend many years in prison. When they get out they should never be allowed to possess any more animals of any kind whatsoever.

The poster complaining about quality-of-life etc. however itís just ridiculous. Iím pretty sure these posters complain about just about everything. If you look at their posting history I am going to guess itís a whole lot of complaints about a whole lot of things.
Talk about missing a gene.

I wonder if you'd begin to get it if that had been your daughter or sister. I doubt it. Your attitude parallels those who weren't phased by Sandy Hook.

That girl's blood is on the hands of all who have your irrational zeal to put a moat around these obnoxious animals no matter how many hundreds of thousands they maim.
