In other news before I got home last night a woman was walking her English bull terrier past our house when it was attacked by a Staffy that emerged from somewhere else - they proceeded to have a dog fight (I have been told for about 15 mins) on our front grass with the woman sreaming and crying whilst still holding the EBT's lead, the man and woman who owned the Staffy appearing and trying to prise it off (for the last 5 mins of this fight the Staffy had its jaw locked around the EBTs throat, and some other neighbours appearing (one who went back home to get his baseball bat) just to see what was going on.
Mrs Skinny and middle d. remained watching from the house but found it quite traumatic enough from there. During the final struggle the Staffy bit its owner's thumb to much cursing and swearing. Fortunately they managed to prise the Staffy off before the neighbour got back with his baseball bat or our front garden could have got really messy. As it is there is various blood (dog and human) on our front drive.
The Staffy owners disappeared with their dog saying they would have to get it put down and would be back with their phone number and address to help pay for the other dog's vet fees. They never reappeared so it is a little unclear whether the Staffy is now dead or still free to escape from the garden and attack random dogs or worse (joggers for example)
You might - I just look like a light bobbing around on their side of the road going towards them - they slow down because they sh1t themselves a little bit that there is a vehicle on their side of the road.
