Man’s best friend eh? I DON’T THINK SO. Click here for the tail [sic ’em] of the Utah labrador that almost blasted his owner to kindgom come. And clock this canine conspiracy from today’s tampabay.com. “Billy E. Brown (above), general manager and executive vice president of the Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative, two friends and a bulldog set out before dawn to hunt deer . . . Brown and one of the other hunters were traveling down a bumpy, rocky road in a pickup truck to their hunting stands when Brown’s dog got excited and bumped a high-powered Browning .308-caliber rifle, authorities said. The bullet struck Brown in the right thigh. The dog, named Eli, was between Brown and a passenger, but it was not immediately clear how the rifles were positioned or if the safety was engaged.” Or who (or what) may have disengaged it . . .

      The government’s knuckled under to the Canine lobby long enough. If we let anyone who wants to own a dog just go out and buy one, every routine fender bender will be followed by shouts of, “Sic ’em, Fido!” There will be blood running in the streets, I tell ya.

      When will our legislators stand up to Big Dog and all the money they throw around and do what’s right?

  4. Whay are dogs trying to shoot us? If someone fed you cans of beef byproducts, ground hooves and minced cow lips day after day, you’d shoot the bastard too, wouldn’t you?
