    by those eyes..

    I'm wondering if the pit bull shagged him.

    1. Sherrie Ludwig

      Re: by those eyes..

      Good grief, no! Any pitbulls I have befriended have MUCH better taste that that. (I imagine even after biting him, they'd have to go wash their mouths out - BLECH!) Poor animal.

    Takeover imminent

    Now that's two dog shagging stories in less than a week - is El Reg fishing for a Daily Mail buy-out?

      Re: Takeover imminent

      It's probably the context of the story, but I read that as "fisting for a buy-out"

        Can you Floridians do something about the politicians you've been electing? They make this guy look like a pillar of the community. Just embarrassing. I moved out of Ohio because it was looking like Florida without the palm trees. Something in the water? Secret CIA trials of mind-altering substances?

      There was a recent letter in the PB Post wherein someone complained about how the news media are always picking on Florida, don't stories like this happen elsewhere? (Answer... apparently not. At least not with _eight_ dogs and illegal guns.)

    Was it a boy or girl doggie? Was he the active partner? Had the dog been trained with treats? Did he use protection?

    And I wouldn't blame the Floridians too much - I've seen similar in Ohio & Ipswich UK (the redhead will remain nameless).

    Inconsequential fact - a dogs wang is actually cleaner than the average humans mouth..

      I would really like a link to the research that established that.

      Is that before or after my dog has gone for a walk and decided to stand in a stagnant pond up to his chest?

      I doubt Florida is in reality much worse than other places; perhaps they are just more upfront about reporting things.

        The equipment...,so to speak, is retracted for the majority of the time so it stays nice and protected even when they find the most disgusting places to roll around.

        The bit you see doing the dangle is the sheath - not the business end of things - that only shows up when needed.

        As to the research - what do you think vetinarians do all day - its hardly rocket science - just compare the flora on the human body with that of a dog and you'll find that dogs are actually cleaner at both ends - less nasties if you kiss a dog than the average human.. and vice (squad) versa..

        There are some zoonoses you need to watch - especially with cats - new research indicates infection with a particular cat parasite makes you more likely to have car accidents.. by slowing reflexes & altering risk perception.

          Well, I know the vet is expensive but I hadn't realised it was because she spends all day comparing dogs' flora with that of human beings. You live and sometimes you learn.

          Cats - nasty brutes and I'm not surprised they spread diseases. I also learned today that they are responsible for the near-extermination of really cute flightless parrots in New Zealand, and now you tell me that they are responsible for Audi drivers.

          > you'll find that dogs are actually cleaner at both ends - less nasties if you kiss a dog than the average human..

          I think doggy hygiene has improved greatly over recent years. "Dog breath" used to be a credible insult but now the chances are it's the owner who's the halitotic one. Dunno about the other end but it brings to mind the joke about the bloke who goes into a pub and sees a dog licking its knob.

          Bloke to barman: "I wish I could do that!"

          Barman: "If you buy him a packet of crisps, he'll let you."

          Boom boom! The old ones are the best.

    Guess he might have a ruff time if he ends up in jail.

    If he had fornicated with a sheep he would certainly end up behind ba-s.

    Let sleeping dogs lie - that ones shagged out anyway.

    thyrotoxicosis ??

    The IT angle on this story for some reason eluded me.

    always a bit dodgy making diagnoses over the internet, but it looks like he has got Graves disease - thyrotoxicosis, whch can send people a bit mad.
