I have weird puppies. They decided they like Kale and uprooted, and ate, several Kale plants in the garden. I guess they need the Kale as a salad green to go with the gopher they caught earlier. :rolleyes:

We had an interesting late afternoon yesterday our new neighbours Staffordshire Bull Terrier (external link) jumped a 5 foot wooden fence and attacked the puppy. The Staffie had hold of the pup, the pups mum had hold of the staffie, I have broken my toe and finger, I had no shoes on and kicked the dog then I got hold of her collar and twisted it, she dropped the pup and Teresa tried to pick the pup up and instinctively the pup bit Teresa, So off to the hospital for x-rays and tetanus jabs. The pup is fine, the staffie has two very bloodshot eyes and does not know how close she came to being choked to death. The neighbours are really upset, they have a 5 month old baby and are now worried.

That's horrible. Ya know, I have known some really sweet pits, but unfortunately when they go bad, really bad things happen. In our old neighborhood we had a pit kill another dog. Really sweet pit to people and to most other dogs. There was just something about this one the pit didn't like and when it had it's chance, it attacked with horrible results.

That sounds like a dog turning sour! :(

My sister had a German shepherd/Border collie mix that developed a really bad attitude when my nephew was born. He came to live with us, but always held onto the spoiled brat attitude.

This is one of those episodes that can scar a dog for life. This can be particularly bad for a working dog....as it can make them shy away from other dogs forever. Hope everyone in the Rice household mends quickly and the pup is able to let this quickly fade from his memory!

Time to say bye bye to the staffie, unfortunately.

I wouldn't even "risk" it with a baby about. No matter how small the risk.

Last I heard, from the NICU staff we regularly meet with, a woman took her newborn home, still in car seat, put the car seat down and their dog attacked the baby. Wasn't a good outcome.

Always sad, for both the animal and the children.

How is T doing? and how is your toe & finger?

We are ok, to be honest the pup seems to be the least affected by it. T's hand has a small cut but lots of bruising and I have a strapped toe and very swollen finger.

I could not believe how strong that Staffie was, I was kneeling on it and twisting her collar very tightly round her neck and she still managed to spin. The good thing is that neither of us was bitten by her.

Sookie was doing her best to protect her pup but the Staffie was ignoring her and just working on the pup.

Neil, good to hear that the pup is the least affected and that you and T are on the mend.

I hate to say it, but I have to agree with Harm. Time for a new more appropriate home for the Staffie.

Holy traumatic!! It was stressful just to read. I'm very glad you are all okay. Sookie too I presume?

Our bunnies aren't up on the deck yet, but they sure are all over the yard! I wish I could just snag one whenever I wanted to cook one up.

I suppose I could spend some time shooting them with my Canon.

Prop a box up with a carrot and tie a string to the carrot, then wait ;)

I wanna party at Zane's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll bring tequila, and the rest of the makins' for margaritas!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!! Wished you could've ventured south this week!!!!

I wish I could have come down. I will make it again.

For sure. His method of barking as he ran up at the bunny just didn't work so well. We always wondered what he would do with the bunny if he actually ever caught one.

Zoë met the ground hog, stepped on it so it would stop running then stood there looking nose to nose like "hi". :roll:

Here is a video on what to do although it sounds like you were working on it. I don't know how easy this is for the average person but it seems like a reasonable approach.
