Case in point: Why do you sit back and watch as your small children approach (run, walk up to, dance around) a dog which has been bred for protection and/or aggression and start barking in his/her face? What do you think the outcome will be?
How cute is this: Let your children run in front of cars and make the tire-screeching noise, directed towards the oncoming vehicle. Same principle, really. Outcome inevitable.
I know that education is key to this scenario and many people aren't educated about animals. But phucktards, really.... we share the planet with creatures that actually might have a higher capacity for learning than you do. At the very least understand, that these creatures have much larger teeth than you or your children, are faster than you and your children, and may not speak your language.
I think that I may just teach my dog the code for attack as "How". That way, when these small phucktards run up to him and start with the "how how how!" (in dog-speak here), he'll just not waste the time on pleasantries and go right for the jugular.
|"How How" you like me now?|
(When you see someone walking their dog at a quarter-kilo distance from people, there is a reason why.)
