If I were in your place, I'd be telling him ... live with myself if another dog gets hurt or killed.

I think that this is a practicable approach. What with Cate's willingness to "deal" on a fence, I think that most neighbours would agree.

this is what we're doing. we're helping the neighbors build the fence that borders our property line. seems fair to both of us.

i was going to say wait to report it to see their response, but after hearing this, i'd say report it. i hate these kind of pit owners. they make the rest of us look bad.

Yes, they do. And they ruin some potentially lovely dogs while they're at it.
They're not responsible owners, to be sure, but they're not as bad as some of the asshats I see around town. Like the guy I see with his pit in a harness straight out of Zed's house of horrors in Pulp Fiction, making the dog swim in place for an hour against the current in a local stream. Maybe he's doing physical therapy, and maybe he's got a BSM fetish he expresses in his dog's attire, but I don't think so.

sounds like they're training them for fighting :-( we have a problem with it in my area. and yes, the owners encourage dog aggression, til the other dog owners grab the cell-phone then they disappear fast. can't go anywhere without a spray bottle of vinegar to ward off attackers

Rocky sends his best. Friday takes a while to warm ... very perceptive when it comes to dogs which are hurting.

Far from nekkid, Orson has two coats! Half of which seems to gather in the corners of my living room.

Labs are nekkid dogs, according to Friday, and goofy - a combination which requires life skills teaching. Friday is always happy to be a mentor.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.

yeah, i find the dogs like it more if you just throw a tennis ball upstream. -)

hey, nekkid goofy dogs are my lively hood! what else would entertain me while i'm stuck on a three month hiatus from work?

now i'm getting all philosophical again. crud.

Well, I eat meat, so I can only get so philosophical about letting my dog kill things.
Also, have I mentioned lately how much I loathe starlings and curse the *** that's responsible for their presence on this continent?

Also also, we recently acquired rodent invaders in our home, and I'm not feeling too charitable. We've been poisoning the bastards for weeks and yet they still taunt us. We have traps EVERYWHERE. I caught one. By the tip of his tail. I let him go outside. His friends are still here.

i don't eat meat, but the dogs do, i won't deny them that. we do have mice, and i'm not sure what to do with them. as long as they stay in the garage, i think i'll just leave them there. :-)
i have an Indian friend who had a German Shepherd when he was growing up. dog food is kind of a rarity in India, so they fed him raw meat. except they were vegetarian. so dad would go to the Halal market, lied and said his wife was Muslim, and buy big cuts of beef to feed the dog. i guess they got over their religious feelings for their dog's sake. :-)

The nightmarish thing is that I was right there and couldn't do a damn thing to prevent it.

That *is* the nightmarish thing. I know it's awful.
