>General Running>Dogs; what to do?
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
But he was a killer. All three pounds of him. I'm considering suing for damages, too. Anybody know what those plastic things on the end of your shoelaces are worth? Cuz Max swallowed one of mine.
Yea sometimes though damn yappers are the worst.

Know why he attacked? Because he's so damn vicious that the electric collar had burned holes in his neck. Bleeding, puss-oozing holes, that I'm now seeing up close and personal. That shouldn't be possible. Most dogs, they get zapped once or twice and never go near the boundary again.
Not Cujo. He burned holes in his flesh, he wanted to get at his prey so badly.
So what did the owners do? Of course - they just took his collar off. What blithering idiots. Admittedly, with most dogs, it would have been okay. With most dogs, once they get zapped, they don't really need the collar. They stay away from the boundary, collar or no.
Not Cujo. Evil little bastard knew he was free and clear as soon as they took it off him.
Be careful with the pepper spray. It can come back on you. So, even if you aim for the dogs, you can still get the effect.

I called Animal Control, but they didn't come out. I am going to call them again and ask why, probably because I didn't get bit. The thing is these animals have been out a number of times and have made moves agaist my daughter too, and animal control has been called a number of times.
I think I'll call the police too and see what they say when I tell them if they make a move against me again I'll kill them. ( The dogs that is.)
