    Gas Meters and Dogs- I Got the Pic

    I posted about this a while back:

    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ad.php?t=18815

    I finally ran across the plate, my wife's digital camera and the inclination to put the two together.

    So here is a pic of the infamous gas meter plate.

    I still love guys from the gas company. I really do.

    That was a funny story, and sad for the cat and the idiot Rotties.

    Randy, thanks for closure at last. I have wondered several times (two) when you were going to post that picture. Good story and good info about gas meters.

    I work for a gas company..we have meters take a lot more damage than that all the time and it's rarely a big deal at all. I'm surprised the FD wanted to have you arrested over it.
