So my pup starts going crazy at my back door. I see two pits in my back yard, one male mostly white about 70lbs, one mostly brown female about 50 lbs. As a matter of principal, I haven't fixed the hole in my fence due to disagreements with my landlord concerning lawn care and fence maintenance. I open the back door enough to yell at the dogs to try and scare them. They just look at me for a second and continue to run around peeing. I grab a 6" blade and 2ft piece of pipe. I go into the back yard and the small one starts coming at me all friendly like. I didn't want them to think it was ok to be in my backyard, so I smacked the pipe on my concrete porch and yelled real loud while it was coming to me. It got scared and that triggered big dog to come at me snarling. I hold the pipe up high to try and scare it, he keeps coming. The dog gets to about 3 feet away and looks like he's gonna make a charge so I swing and catch him in the front leg/shoulder. He got the message and limped off as fast as he could. The other dog was nowherer to be found. I call my buddy tell him to come over. We see the dogs circle the neighborhood a couple of times. We make eye contact, they pause for a second, then run off. Dog battle 2006. Man, I love animals and I hate to hurt any animal but he deserved it I think. The neighbors kids stood on the tramploline looking over the fence the whole time... they are still there. All while trippin' on my pain meds so bad I can hardly stand with my eyes shut.
