katydid joined dogforum.net on feb 15th, and within 7 days she already made herself at home and felt comfortable enough to let it all hang out. KATYDID first established herself as a liar when she proclaimed that she would SWEAR that her brindle amstaff is a "beagle/maltese" if BSL came a knockin in her community. she also claimed SOPHIE was harmless and that she would have to throw her mutant at a mugger to protect her, adding that her mutant would probably wet herself. another 7 days pass and after an especially rough day on the trails (she broke a nail!) KATYDID confided in her fellow fur mommies about how her sweet wimpy mutant turned into cujo during their walk.
I've NEVER seen her like that before...everyones worst nightmare of an enraged pit bull. But the transformation-if you saw a field mouse turn into a fire breathing dragon...
it sounds like KATYDID is getting off on her mutant's transformation.
Some time ago a family member became deranged...the whole time he was going off and even up to the police arriving Sophie stayed hidden and frightened. If she had the hardwiring to protect us wouldn't she have gone off then???
psychopathy runs in the family.
This was just a tall young man, dark skinned, red jacket and hat. Just like other 70% of the young men we see every day...that she pays no attention to. At night she's gotten tweaky sometimes if someone steps out of a shadow or down a dark street but not like today. I've never seen her react so strongly to anything human or animal. Never a human certainly.
this is a textbook example of how psychopaths use (abuse) language, notice how she contradicts herself in the very next sentnece: "I've never seen her react so strongly to anything human or animal. Never a human certainly." it would probably take very little effort to get her to admit that SOPHIE has reacted strongly to humans prior to this incident.
She was almost frothing, no she had her rabies shots, but the barking and leaping and him kicking her and me trying to catch her. Did she see a threat I didn't see? Was she having a flashback? She'll leap upright from a sound sleep barking and confused sometimes.after the other fur mommies chime in with excuses, rationalizations and justifications for SOPHIE'S uncharacteristic cujoesque behavior, KATYDID returns and adds a few more details.
But when I walked the opposite direction she stopped...and followed me...with her head over her shoulder the whole way back...then she dropped her head and tail like "Woooo, close one". If he had called the police...plan A we have connections that can get us out of serious grief or plan B I would've had to say he threatened me in some way and she was protecting me-law says if a dog is acting in the protection of a human it won't be condemned as a dangerous dog...
plan A and plan B are actually plan B and plan C. plan A was a dine & dash. when KATYDID couldn't control her mutant she decided to leave the scene. plans B and C were back up plans in the event the dine & dash failed.
I try to find gallows humor in what I can...you have to sometimes-while the guy was kicking at Sophie I got between them. He missed Sophie and kicked my hand...breaking my fake nail and real nail together owwwwww,.....fleeting thought just for a second there-" You broke my nail, okay then Soph have at him!more advice from the fur mommy support group and KATYDID discloses more.
KATYDID, the epitome of aggressive narcissism
I really feel that way too, I don't think it's that I'm being overprotective of her, it was just so completely out of character for her. Even with all her fears she has never singled out a human like that. And there are unfortunately many people in our area who are often on the other side of the law...I really feel she was telling me something there. Still shaky about it...jeez
i suspect KATYDID did get a nice adrenaline rush from the scuffle, in fact she probably only walks her mutant in the hopes of alleviating her genetic predisposition to boredom.
one fur mommy has the the courage to disapprove of this nutter's willingness to perjure herself and accuse an innocent man of violence, although a meek disapproval, it was better than nothing.
to which KATYDID replies
Hey, we protect our fur children and human children any way we can...if it came down to it I'd swear on ten bibles and a torah that she's a full-blooded retriever too!three more fur mommies felt empowered by the first one, so they too chime in to defend the innocent victim which only convinces the psychopathic princess that pit bull owners are different from normal dog owners, so she had better step back in line, as much as she can.
Nah, I wouldn't falsely accuse...actually worst case scenerio, we know police personally in the surrounding towns...have association with the animal control officer-she lives down the street and always happily greets Sophie by name, our vet too and the vet before that...all would attest to Sophie's true personality
poor impulse control, poor judgement and inability to learn from experience. how does she get away with this? why haven't they banned her?
As I said though, in this area the bad guys can well outnumber the good guys-look up crime rates for Newark NJ if you don't believe me-Sophie has to behave herself certainly but I feel grimly more secure knowing if it was a mugging...or carjacking...both which happen in broad daylight around here...that perhaps my girl would be doing more than wetting herself
look out newark.
