Man some people are stupid. Real situation
about 2 weeks ago, i was over at my buddies house with another friend. The three of us were standing in the front yard shootin' the breeze, getting ready to go out. The neighbors across the street are an awesome older couple. She makes cookies for us college kids, and we help them put up their christmas decorations and plant their trees. Anyways, their grandson was in town, apparently with his family, and I guess they had a big doberman Pinscer because the kid was about to take the dog for a walk. Now this boy is probably 100lbs and 5 feet tall. That dog would have pulled him anywhere he wanted--and he did, but we'll get to that in a minute. The house next door to theirs has a younger couple. Never met them, and didn't even know they had a dog. Well, they do. A big black malamute or some type. Big dog.
So we're standing there talking, and next thing we hear is some barking, and see the kid being dragged on his ass towards this malamute. Of course a very aggressive dog fight ensues with the kid pulling for all he's worth on the leash, and the owner of the other dog (yuppie lady) clapping her hands and saying "no, no" like it's gonna do a damn thing. My one friend started over, and I told him to stop. It wasent a critical situation yet We stood there watching for a minute, and the kid ended up tangled in the leash between these two snarling dogs.
Well, that did it, we were over there as fast as we could, I grabbed the pinscer, my buddy grabbed the malamute, and we wrestled to the m apart and to the ground. I wasen't worried about getting bit too much. Aside from the pain, this was a nice area and I wasent worried about diseases.
The kid is on the ground crying and scratched up, these two dogs are still trying to fight, and what does this dumb lady say? "GET OFF MY DOG, YOU'RE HURTING HIM. HE WONT HURT ANYONE, HE'S NICE!" To my buddie's credit, he looked at her and said, "**** you lady, I'm not getting up until you get a leash or this dog's unconscious." The kids grandparents scooped him up, thanked us, and took him inside. I went over later and mentioned that they should probably not let the kid walk the dog, as he clearly couldn't control him. They thanked me again, and that was that. The other lady got a leash and stormed off muttering at us.
During the fray, my shirt came untucked, and my piece was displayed for all the world to see, but thankfully nobody made a mention of it. Shooting either of the dogs never entered my mind. It's not something I'd ever do--especially with a kid around.
Some people :hand1:
