    Took the ol' Swifter for a walk last night, and we were chugging along, when I looked down the block and saw 2 dogs, medium sized Pits, one on a leash and the other wasn't. We all saw each other about the same time, me, Swifty, the other dogs, and the lady walking them.

    So the dog off the leash starts coming aggressively at Swifty, and Swifty is doing his typical ready to charge another dog thing that he does, so all the slack is off the leash. As the dog gets to Swifty, he makes a full lunge for him, and with that I pull Swifty back in the air on his leash and harness, almost literally from out of the Pits mouth, and swing Swifty up and over a fence that I was standing beside.

    By now, the lady that owned the Pit got there, and put the leash on the dog, and I was all 'WTF'. I was stunned by the whole thing. Swifty was millimeters from certain death, and I saved him. Somehow, he got out of his harness in the swinging around, but absolutely no harm. Harnessed him back up, and went charging on our way. I was still a little fucked up from it though.







    Later, Swifty did that charge and bark at me as I tried to get into my own bed.


    No pics.

    Wow, that is an exceptionally gay post that certainly should have been self edited to 'cancel', instead of 'post'.

    And here is the thing....I was so tremendously faded from really good wax, that I was stunned that I had the reflexes and quickness of thought/mind to take the EXACT action in which I took.

    Shit was cray cray, yo.



    After he did his whatever the fuck little alpha dog thing when I tried to get into bed, I let him know that he was the luckiest fucking dog in San Diego.

    IF the worst had happened, and he had gotten Swifty, that would have been it. Had Swifty made it through that and into a Vets, anything more than 10 bucks, and I would have put him down.
