A man shows incredible bravery and the response from a select few is to use the story for trolling and/or pathetic attempts at humour. You must find the human rights abuse in Libya a real side splitter.
RIP Mr Nerandzic.
About the dog
I am the son of a vet, so I have met many dogs of differing temperments, but generally all pretty unhappy to be in the vets surgery. It is true that there are no bad dog BREEDS, only bad owners. Staffies typically have sweet natures, but they can be nasty, just like any other dog that has been specifically bred for hunting, fighting of guarding. It is worth pointing out that, just like humans, you can come across the odd dog that regardless of upbringing, is a total nutter. Red Setters for example can suffer from Rage Syndrome and trust me when you are trapped in a caravan with one you will know what your fear smells like.
Personally I have only been bitten badly twice (which is not bad for 10 years hgelping my Dad in the surgery). The first was a miniature poodle which nearly took my damn face off and a cat which managed to bite through the meaty part of my hand prior to me encouraging it off with the aid of a handy desk. Never had a problem with the traditional "vicious" breeds. MAybe because you take extra care, but more probably because they are nobetter or worse than other dogs.
This all said - I imagine any dog that has been shut in the boot of a car is probably not one that has been well raised. Personally I would probably chew someone's arm off if I had been shut in the boot.
Must be a new cheap rate package for calls to mobiles
I have had a very polite and persistant chap trying a 419 via phone to my mobile recently. I bounced the first half a dozen calls (the number displayed was overseas and came at somewhat unsocialble hours). Once I did answer he went straight into a "only I could help him unlock millions" story. Sadly cold hearted type I was I cut him off mid flow. Since then he has tried to call several times and has left some heartbreaking text messages for me. Maybe the secret to releasing millions is me allowing him access to my PC. Now if only I can figure out how to block specific inbound calls to my iphone (my lack of technical skill in this department should be obvious from my choice of phone alone).
Do WHAT to your Dad?
I thought that the image of the torture scene in Reservior Dogs would never be surpassed in my mind for bowel quaking nausea. Congratulations Huntsman the thought of what could take place if you were ever confronted with that script has just surplanted it. I am off to scrub my brain with Dettol
