Hate Crimes and Small Cars

Another small car hate crime! Will the carnage (did you see what I did there?) never end?!!

Cumbria car vandal unmasked as dog - YouTube

A vandal responsible for puncturing more than two dozen vehicle tyres in a quiet Cumbrian village has been unmasked as a dog.

Police received a number of reports of damage over six months but could not track down the culprit, until one victim set up a CCTV camera.

Border Collie Jess - whose owner was unaware she was causing any damage - will be kept on a lead in future.

I take the 986 out for a walk once or twice a month and each and single time I prep the car... I get my dogs looking/taking back at me as if I am taking "THEIR" Pcar. It can feels awkward sometimes :/

That must be the ride that sparked that behavior





J.J. is my puppy forever and best mate (seen on the left). Who would have thought for a split-second that my best friend was a dog?! lol

Thor (right dude), although having officially registered his 680hrs of professional training during his past 4 years, still likes to believe he is an arrogant violent and cruel arsehole. He keeps the little garage here, my tools, the 986 and both the bikes safe from the cats and local car Tippers. Smart huh!

One is, the other no so much.

Below is Thor's exchange rate for allowing me to take his pcar out of the garage

San Resho: Yes, and all those smarts need to be used or there's trouble. As I understand it, Border Collies nip at the sheeps' heels to herd them, and I think this Collie is ticked because these cars drive by and just refuse to obey. It's an odd story, isn't it?

jmatta: Yes, it's kind of amazing isn't it? And so quickly he bites right through the tires!

NineBSix: Better you than me, that all looks a bit scary.
