Sic ’em, Tina!

If I hadn’t had a doctor appointment this morning, this post would have been the first one fired off of my cute little fingertips.

Joey Porter’s dogs killed a miniature horse.

Somehow his dogs, a pitbull and a mastiff (would you expect the most feared man in the NFL to own anything less?), got out of a six foot high fence. I don’t know why, but I have images of the pitbull turning to the mastiff and saying, “Hey man, gimme a boost here.”

The dogs then proceeded to enter the neighbor’s yard, enter the horse pen, and kill the horse.

If I ever own a pitbull and/or a mastiff, you can be damn well sure I’ll also own a gun, for those occassions when I find the dogs looking at me with drool all over their paws and a look of, “You know, I could totally take her” on their faces. In addition, you can be sure that I would give them death-appropriate names: Scud, Spike, Stone, Thor, Look At Me Wrong And I Will Totally Eat Your Jugular.

Joey Porter chose to name his horse-eating beasts … ready? Tina and Nemo.

I hate that I am laughing at a dogs kill a horse story, but damned if I’m not chuckling a little bit at this.

    The dogs are named Tina and Nemo…the horse was named “Carson”.

    I am glad I wasn’t the only one laughing (on the inside) about this. Miniature horses are funny. Oh so funny

    A dog once followed a friend of mine on her run from Washington’s Landing down to Heinz Field and back again. When she got back to the island, somebody said, “Hey, that’s Plaxico’s dog — and he’s right over there.” So my friend took the dog over to Plaxico and told him about the dog’s travels — to which Plaxico, in his gratitude, replied, “fuh real?” and took the dog back in the house.

    I know, not a particularly great story, but I like to share. It’s what I do.

    Come on you guys, this is a real life, heart breaking event for Joey. I mean he’s shipping the dogs to a kennel in Calif, will have to pay a fine, his neighbors will give him stink eye, I mean with all that expense he’s still gotta pay the electric bill and feed the kids and all. Have some heart.
    The horse? Oh, they can get another horse right?

    Im glad all you heartless people think that the death of someone’s beloved pet is cause for amusement! How would you feel it it was your pet that was savaged by two killer dogs??

    That being said; I wonder how Mr. Porter got away with sending his dogs out of state in order to be “careful”. I guess he thinks that the people of California dont have pets or children that could be attacked by his vicious dogs. If he really thought that the dogs were “safe”, he would have brought them back to his own house. Those dogs are now killers and should be destroyed. If those dogs had been owned by ordinary citizens like you and me, you can bet your butt that they would be dead by now. Double standards for celebrities.

    There was another incident when he lived on Mt. Washington but he said they were two other dogs. I wonder where they are now??

    Dont you wonder why Mr. Porter feels the need to keep such vicious dogs as pets?? Doesnt he worry that he is putting his own children in danger??
