Re: Dog Attack! - Apparently not.

i should think that most people are taller than dogs and would agree with you on that but dogs are not cowards , they are armed with a mouthful of sharp teeth and are born hunters even the smallest of dogs can be nasty i think if the owner is a bit fruitloop then the dog will copy and if the owner i...

Re: Edge 800 will soon be bits of broken plastic.
