Our latest foster seems like she's not going to be a total disaster.


It's a shame Jake tried to hump her soon as she got in the door.

but he gave her a kiss to make up for it


We have her til July, this was through the dogs trust and they insisted on a proper intro at their centre before we took her home. Her owner has to have an op after an accident and can't look after her while he recovers.

And that's the way it should be done!

Poor girl, the bottom has dropped out of her world and she's not to know she'll be going back home again when her owner is better. She certainly looks settled with you.

Yeah, what sort of idiot would drive a car on the road when there might be dogs wanting to use it.

Honestly, it's a stupid risk to take. Dogs are not robots. Even the best trained dog can do something it owners wouldn't predict once in a while.
Even if the dog didn't do something stupid why risk it's, yours and other peoples life by causing a situation on a public road that motorists don't generally expect. And like you pointed out, there's too many idiots out there in cars for it to be a safe thing to do anyway.

If you honestly can't think of any other way of exercising your dog than cycling with it then find somewhere safe to do it like a cycle lane or a path.

The roads don't belong to car owners, they belong to everyone and as such technically we all have a right to use them.

My point was that a sensible person in a car could easily pass someone with a dog and a bike, the way that they pass cyclists who are riding 2 abreast or people on horses. there will always be idiots though!

Technically you are right.
You have every right to put your own dog in the way of the countless idiot drivers. Of course only an idiot would choose to.

Except where did I say I did??

I said I USED TO some 40 years ago when there were far less cars on the road and people were courteous and kind to each other - there is a difference.

I'm not advocating it now, so what's your beef??

Does anyone know the colour variation of this dog? (It's an APTB unfortunately) It's absolutely stunning, especially with the nose too.

Adding to this, do authorities even recognise the Fila Brasileiro and Tosa breeds? I've never, ever seen one in the UK and was wondering whether they would even be recognised because they're pretty uncommon?

They're both banned breeds... which would be why you've not seen one.
