  2. It's interesting how quickly the neighbors learn they're neighbors and
    not the sovereign rulers of a private island once you exhibit your
    willingness to involve law enforcement.

    I recommend it highly to anyone with assholes in any direction.

    Any particular reason why you don't quote anymore, Blair?

    Especially ones like mine that are noisy Pitt Bull owners...
    I have nothing against that breed, just owners that don't train the
    damned things and let them bark all frickin' day!!!

    Ain't that the truth. It's too bad that pitbulls have
    gotten such a bad rep. I've met more bad pitbull owners
    than almost any other breed. They tend to encourage
    aggressiveness and almost always neglect to give the
    dogs basic obedience training.

    It's the humans that have the problem here, not the
    breed.

    Rotty owners tend to be nearly as bad, but not quite.

    Oh, I know that. You're overall understanding of the animal
    world is quite high :)

    > Rotty owners tend to be nearly as bad, but not quite.


    Yup. Dobermans, too. The guard dog breeds in general
    tend to have a high percentage of idiot owners.

    I don't anthropomorphize... <G>

    Animals are not humans.

    Sux don't it?

    My personal preference is for the herding breeds.
    Easier to train.

    I'm gonna seriously miss this little Pembroke Corgi when my Brother in
    Law picks her up. <sigh>

    In this particular instance Blair don't need to do any friggin'
    quoting, what he said is PERFECTLY spot - on...

    Because I *am* posting through groups.google.com, and don't need to, so
    I forget. I recommend everyone in the world upgrade at the very least
    to a threaded newsreader.

    Quoting on google is a p.i.t.a., btw.

    Pit Bulls were bred for aggression, strength, and self-sacrificing
    persistence once they clamp on. Their owners are generally bred for
    stupidity. It's an intolerably bad combination. If any breed deserves
    to be extincted, it's them.
