Spraying my dog would have meant that he would have had to use that Glock on me also. Besides wouldn't we all have been coughing uncontrollably inside a small cabin?

Why does man think he is a more important living creature than other animals?
When I see people trying to dictate other animals to act as they see fit I think to myself; why mess them up, look at what a mess we made of ourselves and our world? Leave them out of it!

Oh yeah, must have something to do about that religious self imprtance thing.

Btw, my best friend only growled and showed his unrest of the situation which is something that I am not allowed to show to the cop.

He wanted to spray him for it, he had the pepper spray unholstered.

File a compalint with the FWC, in that the officer did not allow you to take the time to properly restrain your dog.

Re: Boarded by the FWC at Anchor.

This thread has given me a headache.

LEOS have a right to protect themselves period.

How about, "sir, can I put my dog below or can I take her up forward?"

Being proactive helps.

Re: Boarded by the FWC at Anchor.

De scripto my rules. De facto not so much.

To the guy who suggested brutalizing the 13 pound dog: I suggest you read this article: ASPCA | 13-Pound Dog Received Paralyzing Blow

As a dog lover, I gotta take this opportunity to denounce violence against dogs. Especially toy breeds (13 pounds.)

I bet this lil guy weighs 16 pounds SOAKING WET.

I am willing to bet that a good number of 13 pound dogs would not even be capable of making it out of an average companionway. Let alone taking down a young gun.

Attacking a 13 pound dog is like handcuffing a toddler. It's just ridiculous and unnecessary. I don't care how vicious the dog is, it's THIRTEEN POUNDS. I have eaten steaks that weigh more than that!


Chopper Sick Balls!

If you pepper spray a great dane, I understand, but if you pepper spray that thing that looks like a bunny rabbit, you are evil.


Here is a vicious 13 pounder terrifying some poor innocent dames!

I am not trying to make light of dog attacks, they can be very serious, I was attacked by an abused dog when I was a toddler.

The reason he attacked me was because somebody abused him.

Let me restate this: Abusing dogs just creates more problems.

More importantly: A 13 pound dog cannot harm you. I can only imagine the frailest of naked people being genuinely scared of a 13 pound dog.

To me, the situation sounds entirely like the all-too-common intimidation tactic that many LEOs employ: abusing animals as a power-play.

Be real people. There is an element of totalitarian intimidation to this. Nobody is scared of a 13 pound dog. Not even me, who was mauled as a child.

Once the word gestapo has been used in a thread it has served its purpose.
