Here is a snipit from a local paper for an island of the west coast of Scotland called Arran, and the island of the Arran Coast.
your respniable dog owner.
Dog kills rare sheep on Holy Isle
Report by Howard Driver
Published: 17 July, 2009
A rare breed sheep has been killed on Holy Isle by a dog from a private boat.

Holy Isle is a spiritual retreat centre owned by the Budhhists of Samye Ling, Eskdalemuir, and dogs are expressly forbidden ashore on the island.

Local administrator Adam Rose said: 'Visitors from a private boat brought a dog onto the island, lost control of it and it chased one of the wild Soay sheep into the sea and drowned it.

'It was horrible. A lot of other sheep scattered and disappeared and the owners finally restrained the dog. It was an Old English sheepdog and just a puppy, but he was an urban dog and probably not used to sheep.

'I know that a farmer would simply have shot the dog.

'We very much welcome day visitors and had more than 1,000 on the island last year. But to help us protect our rare wildlife and to respect the Holy Isle as a spiritual retreat we ask visitors not to bring dogs ashore.'

Tom Sheldon runs the Holy Isle ferry from Lamlash pier. He said: 'I know the people in that boat. They are regulars and they can be quite arrogant. No-one would get on board my ferry with a dog. The animals over there are just not used to dogs.'

Adam added: 'The issue is basically with people who come to Holy Isle with private boats. Our retreat leader Lama Yeshe has done a lot to open up the island to the public. We meet every boat that comes to the jetty and welcome them to our spiritual retreat.

'I will be writing a letter to every yacht club and marina on the Clyde to inform them that dogs are not allowed ashore here.'

Last year two dogs were shot by a Northend farmer after worrying sheep in Sannox.

Two months ago the Banner reported on a case of six sheep being killed by a pet dog in a field at Springbank, Brodick.

Put this in writing and give copies to the paper, and the mayor and the Post Office.

The first person will probably not get a response. The second they might notice. It will be the third one that starts to get results. You never know where you are in the line so report each and every thing.

And I don't agree that dogs who bite should be controlled. I think they either should be in a paid kennel, where owners can visit and security is water-tight, or they should have operations that make them forever docile, or they should be put down. Period. mg

Thanks olddude, you just made my day.

I guess I'm OK now, although the arm is still a bit uncomfortable and I get bouts of tiredness hit me unexpectedly.

Me and my good lady (who was almost as traumatised as I was, and has been running around after me, driving me to the hospital 5 times so far) have been planning just the kind of treats you've all been mentioning.

I think this thread has run its course now, I probably won't post again.

I saw today an example of a person hating dogs that moved me to wish violence upon a woman.

BG were in a pub and the landlady has a wholly adorable boxer (mostly red) that is regrettably deaf - but has not an ounce of vice in it.

Obviously the dog is used to pub customers feeding it crisps and so on.

It was "working the room" (for this purpose, and indeed much to the delight of most customers who were making a fuss of it) and approached the woman in question. She reached for her small handbag - an almost dead ringer for a crisp packet - and the dog put its head forward expecting a treat. She started yelling and violently pushing the dog away and hit it on the head (fortunately not hard) twice.

The look in the dog's eyes was simply tragic.

Olddude, you are an okay guy.

So, G-force, you are having quite the ordeal. Have you given any thought to what special treats you will give yourself to make up for it?

When a child is sick or hurt, people give presents or take it on nice outings to make up for it. You are no longer a child, and you must take responsibility for giving yourself your own treats. (Joke!)

Are there any butterfly houses in your country? Perhaps a visit to a butterfly house, followed by a nice meal in a special restaurant. When you are feeling up to it, of course.

I'm glad to hear you can play music again.

I can see why they would make an exception for guide dogs. It would be difficult for a blind person to clean up after the dog. And there aren't usually a huge number of them around, so it wouldn't be such a big deal.

On a lengthy list of local bye-laws, after some clauses about dog-owners being obliged to lift their dogs' dung in plastic bags and deposit it somewhere hygenically, I noticed that exceptions were made for Guide-Dogs for the Blind. This set me wondering. Are such dogs trained to defecate only "at home"? Actually, my first thought was, "are blind/visually impaired people able to locate any dung by smell, or touch, since they obviously can't see exactly where their Guide-Dog has performed?" It would certainly be a bit odd for a blind person, complete with Guide-Dog, to be accompanied by a sighted companion whose specific purpose was to be a shit-lifter...

G-Force, I didn't see anything racist about your remark. You made no reference to race at all.   I'd be ticked off too by somebody who had a dog that was prone to bite and didn't keep it under control at all times. I think we all realize that your "I hate dogs" comment was just venting - understandable as you were shaken up and in pain. I'm very fond of dogs - but not when they bite!

Blimey, how my moods are going up and down ...

The arm gets gradually better, I can play 'tina for about 15 minutes before it stiffens up too much, and I feel like going out and hugging a dog.

Olddude practically calls me a racist and I feel right down again, so I feel like nominating a pile of dead dogs for the 4th plinth.

Guest mg: 'lack of law enforcement'. Quite. I now hear (from the postman) that the Post Office complained about this dog about a year ago and there was supposed to be a court case. Obviously nothing happened, so doggie lives to bite again. And presumably again. Unfortunately to enforce a law you have to have proof. In the absence of witnesses, the word of a shocked and exhausted victim wouldn't carry much weight in a court of law when it comes to actually identifying the dog.

Goatfell, its because dogs are sexual role models for many humans although most humans are simply envious of what dogs do. For instance, do you know why a dog licks it's balls? Because it can! And think how great the world would be if you could whiff the crotch of anyone you chose! Or what about some wild passionate sex anywhere and anytime the spirit moved you? Well, except for the part where someone threw a bucket of cold water on your ass...............

Anyway, just think about it.

I have had a lifetime of Weimaraners, often two or more at a time. They are very intelligent and were bred to be not just hunters but companions. They've often been referred to as a dog with the human brain. They make excellent service dogs as well as being great for nursing home visits. But like with any, its all in the training. Weims just really want to please you though so its a bit easier with them. Loyal to a fault, their need for human interaction is so strong that many (most really) suffer from separation anxiety which is easily fixed if you just take them along everywhere you go.......and I generally do. Having more than one eases this problem as well.

The old hound laying on my feet as I type has lived longer than most Weims do already but even with all her problems of aging, she's still a happy girl. Almost blind now and about totally deaf, she still recognizes that Tim Horton's bag that holds her Apple Fritter. And whenever she can she steals my Tim's coffee as well. A very happy old pup........When that ceases I will do right by her. She and her mate Jaeger were the finest Weims I ever shared life with and Sissy will sadly but probably be my last. I could never find better.

Most dog problems as has been stated are really owner problems. We play games with puppies that seem to be fun but sometimes are teaching the pup all the wrong things. I suggest anyone with any interest in having well trained dogs that are a pleasure to take along anywhere become familiar with the methods of the Monks of New Skete:

bruce i am with you thogugh we don't have kids round the dogs.

even when we move them in their sleep, if they grumble at us they are straight on their backs with a very unhappy mummy in their face.

with one of them we play eat his whiskers, that is the only time he is allowed to growl and show his teeth, mockingly aggressively, we know he isn't serious because he licks us at the same time. as far as i know he has only nipped twice once was when a kid stood on his tail, he moved very qiuckly but i don't think he got the kid, the second was when they were all tied up in a big EMPTY square, a man decided to walk as close as possible so he nipped his hand, very funny considering the man did it as a wind up, he has learnt his lesson that dogs are to be respected.

this doesn't paint me in a very good light i know but if they have behaved badly without reason, they are severly told off.

take care all

I like dogs. I find them best when deep fried with a nice green chili salsa for dipping.

For many years I was the chief dog catcher in Anchorage. In that capacity I was bitten over 100 times by a wide variety of different breeds. Whenever I was bitten, I made sure to impound the beast for at least 10 days quarantine to be sure it didn't have rabies, I issued as many citations to the irresponsible owner as I could, and I imposed severe confinement requirements for the miscreant for the rest of its unnatural life. I usually took a few paid sickleave days as well.

Best wishes,
Mike

My dog, Tamar, was trained excellently--pardon me for saying so. She'd do all the normal stuff people train their dogs to do, but she walked at heel unless I gave her permission to range ahead. She would allow ANYone to put their hands in her food dish while she ate. Taught her to back up and sit down. She eventually learned hand signals--that is, if I pointed she lie down, sit or if necessary, attack. She understood the word gentle and protect with children or basically anyone. Best dog I ever had. Early in our relationship she growled at me. I drove her between the eyes and when she got up we had a very good understanding of what was what. When she was around kids, and if they bothered her, she'd go someplace the kids couldn't get to and take a nap.

When I first got her she'd been very badly treated by the people who had her. They'd broken one of her ears and snapped a piece of her tail, so as a show dog, she was out of the running. Her pedigree was such that if she'd been a human she'd never have talked with me. Her father was a big sonuvabitch [:-)] and her mother was the most beautiful GS I've ever seen, bar none.

I kept her for a few years and I'm glad I did. One evening I had a few too many and she came into the lake after me. Swimming wasn't her thing, but she came anyway. She once attacked another dog because the dog growled at me. It was a GS/Collie cross. I knew the dog and he had a shit disposition. Tamar had him by the throat in nothin' flat. She dragged him around until she could see me and it was clear in her eyes that she was asking whether to dispatch the s.o.b. or let him go.

On the other hand, I once had a mutt whom I had 'rescued' from a life of constant pregnancy. No one took care of her in the place I was living at the time. I got her spayed and she was with my family for two or so years. One day when my daughter--about 7 months old at the time--was crawling around the floor the dog growled at her and bared her teeth when my daughter approached her food dish. Sorry folks, but I will tolerate no dog that growls at kids, regardless the reason. I called the dog, took my .22 and was leaving to take her to the dump. A teaching colleague saw me and asked where 'we' were going. I replied, "The dump." She said, "My father is looking for a dog. Could I give her to him?" The dog got a reprieve and that's kinda the end of it.

Dogs, horses, cats (and many other domesticated creatures) have helped us, worked for us and basically done their share of the work, whether it be killing mice, defending us, tilling our fields, herding our livestock or improving the quality of our lives by simply being our friends. I know Tamar certainly was a friend to me. That is one dog I will never forget: sense of humour, loyalty, kindness, brains and guts.

We get qualities back from most creatuures we befriend. And as has been said a few times on this thread, SO much is the responsibility of the owner(s). I will never have a dog around me that I do not trust. But then, we aslo have to offer guidance and training to the 'pets' we befriend. To do less does them and those around us a disservice.

I hope no one interprets this as a lecture. It ain't meant to be. It's just the way I see things.

Thoreau recommended a method of defusing a strange dog's aggression that I have used successfully a number of times: Call it to you, enthusiastically and loudly.

As he said, the dog has no reason to obey a stranger.

In Virginia if you need medical treatment following a dog bite, then doctor or hospital are required to ask about the animal and submit a report to police or animal warden.

In the case of my youngest child, the attacking dog (a jack russell) belonged to a police officer who went with us to hospital. Hospital staff said if he could produce up to date rabies vaccination record then they needn't do a report. He promised to pay for insurance deductible for emergency room visit, but never did.

I have been attacked by poodle who had recently had pups and frightened nearly to death by a German Shepherd (Alsatian).

I have had cat scratch fever from a cat attack and my god I was so so sick for months.   I was hunched over like a question mark for weeks with joint pain.

Still prefer cats to dogs. I like both, but kitties are my favourite.

Hell, I've seen people who love their dog so much that they not only let it sleep in their bed, but they'd probably MARRY the dog if it was legal to do so! ;-)

Personally, I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to...as long as it can be proven without a doubt that the dog fully understands the arrangement and gives consent to it. The dog could bark at the wedding when the vows are taken to say "I do"...and could wear a ring through its nose or perhaps on one ear.

This is one area of civil rights and equality that you DON'T see the most ardent liberals and progressives on this forum defending, and I think it's a disgrace. They should be ashamed of their blatant bigotry and prejudice. After all....THEY don't have to marry the dog, do they? And how does it affect THEIR own marriage if someone else marries a dog? Shame on them, I say! Shame! (Heh! Heh!)

Folks who anthropomorphise pets, should be automatically disqualified from owning them too.
It's a dog, it's a cat, you're a human being (allegedly). HTF can you be it's Mommy or Daddy?

He is a different sort of person from your average folkie Mudcatter, makes his income from renting out properties, is generally regarded as a bullshit merchant and obviously doesn't mind making enemies

interesting, do you generalize all people? how about, black people, and Irish people and Asian people and the list goes on. or do you just generalize people who own dogs ?

sorry you got bitten but i think I understand why. I have little compassion for someone who likes to generalize others. I have been bitten by dogs, scratched by cats, even attacked once by a black bear. never once thought of making a general statement about other people because of it. I hope you feel better, I am done talking to you for sure

that is great news g-force i hope your arm gets full use back very soon. i too understand you were venting your frustration and i am glad that it hasn't given you a phobia of all dogs.
taking a cane or something isn't a bad idea.

take care

That's good news about your fingers and grip. I hope the straightening and the arm strength will return in time. Have you asked for physical therapy? I understand that when an arm or leg has been in a cast or sling, it needs a little PT to restore its strength.

I think 'the average folkie Mudcatter' understands that in your first post, where you said you hate dogs, you were merely venting. You hurt, you were worried that your playing ability was damaged, you were miserable, you were traumatized, and you needed to let off some steam.

I want to be fair to dogs, but I will never change my opinion that Weimaraner's are any ugly color and have creepy, pale eyes.

One final thought - when you go for a stroll take a stout cane or walking stick along in case you encounter that dog again.

As a child I was bitten in the face by my neighbor's white German Shepard. That incident did not cause me to hate dogs.
As a teen I had a dachshund/shepard mix (yup, you read that correctly). I got home from school one day and my sister started screaming at me that MY dog had bitten HER son. My first question was "what did he do to MY dog?". Turns out, he'd been trying to pick her up by her tail and had hurt her. My nephew was at fault, not the dog. It's not like she could say "hey, dude, that hurts." He was taught to treat the dog with respect and it didn't happen again.

You are also more likely to be bitten by a small breed (poms, peekapoos, etc) then you are by a large dog, the large dog just does more damage and gets more headlines.

it's the dogs that lick their own arses and gentials and then after the cover their tongue with shit, they lick their owners faces, and then their owners faces and mouths are covered in dog crap come and give their firends a kiss or a cuddle, smearing you with dog crap.

I must say that it has been wonderfully therapeutic to be able to shout my mouth off on Mudcat and watch the replies (pro and anti) roll in. A bit like trolling, except that the underlying point is very serious.

Little Hawk, if your dachshund is male he is very welcome to come and pee in my garden, I believe the testosterone deters the foxes (I have been peeing out there too). Presumably female pee attracts them.

The sling is now off and all the bite holes are now dry except one which still has a dressing on it. My fingers work, my hand has got much of its grip back, but I still can't completely straighten the arm or lift anything heavy like a bucket of water or a pint of beer (but then I'm right off alcohol until the antibiotics are gone).

And I can play my concertina, for a little while at least. Result!!!!

On the wider issue, don't take me too literally. Dogs, like gunpowder and nuclear power, are morally neutral. It's what you do with them that is either good or bad.

I am gradually building up a picture of the dog owner, based on odd comments I have heard. He is a different sort of person from your average folkie Mudcatter, makes his income from renting out properties, is generally regarded as a bullshit merchant and obviously doesn't mind making enemies. He lives in a big house behind a shingle drive and an agressive dog, and I think I pity him because I don't have to do that.
