Just been to our local social dog club for the first time in a long while.

Dog turns up there which has a well known issue with serious aggression towards breeds similar to ours.

Owner let's it off the lead, within a couple of minutes it attacks our dog.  Like properly having to be dragged off attack.  Our dog is left yelping and limping.  We reckon he's okay now, just sprained the leg he went down on.

The organiser brushes it off, suggesting that the owner of that dog thinks about coming to an earlier group and asking us to ensure we always pre book to make sure they don't meet.  Because they're "friends" with the owner of the aggressive dog.

Sorry...but on what planet is taking a dog with knwon aggression issues along to a social thing like this and then letting them off lead reasonable behaviour?

 

Suffice to say, we won't ever be going back.  So yet again due to someone else's stupid, inconsiderate behaviour us and our dog miss out. 

Really getting fed up of this running theme in our life right now.

This may have been made before the introduction of integrated drum and bearing units so may just be able to get just the  bearing to fix. However, it's really not worth the hassle. 

The Bush machines (Argos) or Logik (Currys) are worth a look. Both are manufactured by a massive company called Vestel who make machines for other big brands. Spec is good and are reliable.

This one has been reliable to be fair. It's at least 8 years old... 

Just bad timing.

Just missed out on a 1999 Mk1 Focus Estate, 2 litre Ghia with all bells and whistles, 375 quid 10 miles down the road. Went to get some cash, car sold as I withdrew the notes. Bugger :(

I know how that goes. I'd have wound up being charged with animal cruelty and thrown in the nick for a decade.

The owner's a "professional dog trainer" don't ya know...

Scum that let their dogs off the lead but can't control them are a massive pain in the arse. Our dog is a bit of a twat with other dogs so we try to avoid other dogs and keep him on the lead. Then some dog bounds up of the lead with the owner not giving a shit.

I'd report them

The RSPCA say

  • Report the attack. If your dog has been attacked and injured, you can report it to the police by calling 101, or report it to your local council's dog warden.
  • Collect details. Get the owner's contact details and a photo of the other dog (if you can) and note or photograph any injuries your dog got during the attack. If you can, check if the other owner has third party or pet insurance for their dog as this may cover you for any veterinary care required. You may also want the contact details of any witnesses.
  • Take your dog to the vet. Even if your dog's injuries don't look serious, take them to the vet straight away to get checked over. Many bite injuries are a lot worse than they look due to damage to the muscles and tissue underneath the skin and the bacteria carried in dogs' mouths.

You know when you fork out for a new tin of an expensive product, and then a few days later whilst having a clear up you find a nearly full and still perfectly usable tin of exactly the same product?

Yeah, that.

Yep. Done that with copper grease a few times. 

Sods law says that even if you had a full scale 'rip the place apart' look for it before buying the new tin, you still wouldn't find it though.

One of those days today. Riding in to work this morning, idiot woman in a Range Rover nearly takes out the cyclist in front by pulling out in front of him to turn right across us. He fell off to avoid her. He has my details and I’ll send him the camera footage. 

Fume cupboard in the lab is playing silly buggers and will run all day with no problem or turn off after five minutes. Will restart ok, and either run for the rest of the day or stop again ten minutes later. Probably a £1000 call out.

our newer icp instrument wont form a plasma. Pre checks ok,  purge ok, ignition warm up ok and no RF issue, but it won’t ignite. Probably a £3000 call out at least, maybe £15000 if it needs a new power module.

then, in the pouring rain, riding home my bloody seat fell off. Snapped the bolt holding it to the post.  Back down to work and I fixed it to get home.

today was not the day to buy a lottery ticket.

What is it you do for a living?
