These days no self-respecting local hard-nut is properly kitted out to venture out in his “Manor”
without some ferocious fighting dog such as a Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Bull Mastiff – preferably rabid – in tow.
“Attack Dogs” are the “Weapon of Choice” is, I believe, the phrase the RSPCA used.
I appreciate that Gang leaders, Vendors of Mood-Enhancing substances may be reluctant to consider lesser breeds such as Chihuahuas and Pekingise as they wouldn’t have quite the same “impact”….
…but are they missing a trick?
Maybe they can’t use old fashioned pets like goldfish, hamsters or tortoise….. BUT have they forgotten the threat of Mad Cow Disease that had us all choking on our burgers?
My pal Rupert has found that “patrolling” with his Fresian, Daisy, all loose-bowelled and hooves askew as she slides around slobbering, has worked well for him as an enforcer……plus he’s making his own yoghurt.
He’s considering adding an eagle to his “team” …he wouldn’t have to take it for walks AND the
added threat of bird flu ….. He’s going to plaster it’s beak with a bit of that green crazy string stuff for that nicely “snotted-up” look.
The Parrot – a poor man’s Eagle but a better conversationalist.
PATHETIC! The even less imposing budgie – a bit like a parrot-with-aids
