My Little Bull Terrier [Apr. 18th, 2009|01:20 pm]

Bull terriers have an interesting quirk - they can bite down so hard that nothing will make them let go until they want to. Some people mistake this for them 'locking' their jaws, when in fact it's just sheer bloody-mindedness on the part of the animal. No matter how much damage is done to them, they won't let go until they are done, unconscious, or dead.

I once saw our 13 year old, half-blind bull terrier, Pancho, get into a fight with three other younger, bigger dogs that weren't on leads and ran as a pack. Dad tried to intervene, he always did if Pancho was involved in a fight, but after having the owner of the three dogs make no effort to stop them, and make a smiling comment along the lines of 'Sorry mate! Dogs, eh? Whatcha gunna do?' Dad decided to let Pancho do his thing. Dad wasn't trying to protect our dog. Pancho tore them to shreds, much to the dismay of the owner.

Sharon is a bit like a bull terrier At the moment she's pissed off at someone who is wrong on the internet, and is formulating her reply. I was going to reply to them myself, but shazgirl is going to do a much more thorough job than I, who would have been relying on memory and, too be blunt, can't be bothered arguing the point that much. They are making sweeping statements about events they weren't around to witness.

Normally Sharon wouldn't bother to reply either, but this one has annoyed her. She knows the statement made is wrong, and now she's doing the research to prove just how totally wrong it is. Today is the second day of her research. I would have gone into this with a figurative punch on the nose, Sharon will be going in with a chainsaw in each hand.

Love you, sweetheart! And I've never wanted you more!

I got no idea where it is at the moment. I know roughly but will wait until Sharon digs it out, then chuck up the link.

BTW, I received your latest 'cock' while sitting down to dinner with my parents. I'm not sure what my dad thought of it as he handed me the phone and said, "You have a message."
And ThungummyBob is currently stuck to teh bathroom door so that Josh can play with him while i am in the shower.

I hope you both appreciate how carefully I have to time things sometimes. If I'm not careful, it's so very easy to miss sending them when your parents are around.
