I am absolutely horrified when I hear of a parent reversing their car over one of their own children and killing them. It happens often enough. If it was me, I think I would kill myself because of the guilt. It would surely be an experience for a parent to endure that is beyond imagination.
But in the same basket I would add your four year old child clinging to your leg and being mauled by a dog until she was dead. That happened in Melbourne yesterday. I may well have some mother readers. Can you even imagine that?
Our state government makes sound noises in response, increased penalties lala lala lala.
It is not hard. Ban these dog breeds. Oh, it has been done already, but in a typical politician way. The breed was banned, but not the cross breeds.
Big powerful and potentially killer dogs have no place in our present society. Even my most ocker Tradie Brother is rather fond of little yappers and he is about to see his second Lab to death at an old age.
I just looked at my post back in 2009 about the same matter. I think it is great to encourage people to write, never mind how bad their writing is. I don't dis people for bad writing, but for once I shall snobbishly elevate myself in a superior manner, so do read the ill educated comments from the working class who don't work and have a packet of Winnie cigs stuck up their tee shirt sleeves and may just own one of these dog types.
Oh, the confluence. The confluence became bigger after I started to write this post and I spoke to Sister. Explain later.
