    Sorry, but I have to wonder about some owners. Here was this story....the dog seemed so sweet....BUT, forget about who was right..the elderly woman that says the dog attacked, or the owner..............the owner then let the dog loose again in the neighborhood today. How sad. Now, the sympathy that was there will be gone........BECAUSE OF THE STUPID OWNER..NOT THE DOG! It is just sooooooooooooooo sad. And, now the poor little dog is at risk for being destroyed. All because the owner couldn't bother to be responsible. UGH...:mad: I HATE news stories like this. :mad:

    Don't you wish you could just swoop down, snatch that puppy up and take it far away from such a stupid owner where it would be safe?

    Dogs just don't bite for no reason - and there's generally a human behind the reason somewhere.

    That is the absolute truth!!!!!! I'm not even going to get started on this, it makes me so mad that some people are so ignorant.

    Here's what the owner said happened; his dog broke his collar, and was only loose for a couple minutes. The elderly woman saw the dog....started running...fell (which is how I believe she broke her wrists..NOT the dog!) and started kicking. The dog did then give her a bite......but in total fairness, altho I'm sure it wasn't pleasant to the woman, it wasn't a bad bite. I think the dog got scared with all the screaming...and did react with a nip. We all know that IF that dog was aggresive, she would have had a 'REAL' bite! But....camera cuts to the poor, elderly, frail woman...with casts on both wrists....wailing how 'mean' that dog is...' a menace to the neighborhood...blah,blah,blah' Of COURSE they portrayed the event as if this little woman stepped out her door and was horribly attacked by a PITBULL! Meanwhile...back to the owner's house, where the dog is happily playing with the couple's baby. My hubby and I look at each other and say....'yeah, real mean dog there....NOT' Just another case where the media LOVES to hype this sort of crap. What is really sad....no matter how much we all protest....they still seem to THRIVE on these stories. There will be a hearing to see if the owner has to destroy the dog. I know I was angry with the owner at first......but now it doesn't seem like he was being totally irresponsible. I know it's our responsibility to control our dogs at all times, but this was something that happened in a matter of a couple minutes. It was unfortunate for all.........but my whole point to this rant is this.....that same bite could have been from a teacup poodle, and it would have NEVER been a news story. thanks....needed to vent that
