Love your dog, but don't love your dog. If you know what I mean.

71-year-old man attacks 44-year-old son with a crowbar after discovering that his son's canine companion was also his special friend. Dad got a suspended prison sentence; no mention at all of the son getting charged with anything.

I just love that their last name is Buble.

I find it amusing that Boulware believes that such a thing could never happen in the Almighty Bay Area, oh no. And that he feels the need to point this out in his very first sentence.

Anyway, I guess you'd have to catch the guy in the act of screwing the pooch before you could charge him. And what if the dog likes it?

That doesn't seem very fair to the animal. Any humane zoophile should go the humane route, using plush substitutes.

I like that last line: He [the guy screwin' his dog] added that his father shouldn't have to spend time in prison, but "he needs serious therapy."

That sure would have made an interesting episode of Lassie.

But what happened to the dog!?

haha! he needs serious therapy. I'm sure someone screwing a dog doesn't and is in authority of giving advice. Btw, isn't that concidered animal cruelty? Legal/Illegal?

"Dad, I really wish you would stop calling my girlfriend a bitch. It really makes her feel like she isn't part of the family."

Why would he talk to his dad about his relationship with the dog? "Hey, pop, I met this wonderful girl at the bar last night. She's a bit of a dog, but with that tongue, who cares?"

How long before the zoo's have their own equivalent of NAMBLA?

B.A.R.K.: Boys' Association for Raping Kanines.

Man bites dog, indeed.

And, would they think that it is worse to make sweet, sweet puppy love to a young, underage animal than to an older one? Where do they draw the line?
