Isn't there a liability thing about having a "Beware of the Dog" sign nowadays? That technically it's inviting people to be bitten so you shouldn't have one? I really despair for this country.

No guns, no dogs... call the cops and wait for what? 15-20 minutes? WOW.... I'm an American and I'll keep my guns and my unfriendly dogs close by... To live in a nice world where love and flowers and butterflies abound is a great idea but in practical practice... NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

HAH! That's optimistic... The only thing that Scottish Independence will be good for will be to get out of all these stupid PC-Policies. But we'd have reverted back to a feudal system as our economy crashes anyway so it willnae matter.

How on Earth do you believe that Scottish independence will get rid of PC policies in Scotland?

Are the Scottish Labour, Tories and LibDems less PC than those in the rest of Britain?  Are the SNP not very PC?  I doubt it very much.

If any thug burglar ever comes into my house, they best take note that I am a sadist serial killer.

My gate sign doesn't say "Beware of Dog"

Oh no, it says "Welcome to my Dungeon"

You'd think the UK of all places would have castle laws.

Now I know some knowledgeable poster is going to tell me that yes, the UK does have castle laws.   If that's the case then legislating around doggie-bites has got to be the dumbest idea I've heard in years.   If you break into my house and you hear the shotgun clicking, you better get your dumb *** out.  Nobody's going to be whining that my buckshot bit you too hard, and how stupid are they, if they do.

Britain pretends not to be Europe. As far as I know in all other European countries, as long as there is a warning on the gate and the dog has its rabies shot (where rabies is predominant) he may bite any trespasser.
Heu!!!! France has forbidden attack dogs and owners have to take classes in order to own big dogs and they are held responsible for any attack.  So far none of them have involved burglar's attack but if the case occurs, I'm sure to socialo-commies will pass a similar law.  Few years ago, two illegal chased by the police went into hiding in a electric building that changes high voltage currant into 380 v, and of course they fried.  SOS racism is suing the cops (and might win) for illegal chase.

No need for that, my dog will eat anything.  

Plus my garden consists of concrete slabs and stones (beautifully arranged of course!) so unless she can use a pick-axe...

You're probably right, but one can dream can't they? Independence will kill Scotland anyway, but that's another matter. It's OK to have some Political Correctness, but like anything it must be in moderation. Perhaps respect or common decency are better words to use.

What was forbidden, and in more than one European country, is dogs that cannot be controlled by the owner. Some countries actually demand schooling for certain races (i.e. Pitbull).

But in any case, the best "dog" my family ever had was my  little sister's pet burro. No neighbor ever stepped on our pasture without getting bitten by him.

The dog welfare body says owners should have some protection under the law when dogs try to defend the home.

I agree. I have two dogs which are in charge of security on the property, kind of like Higgins on Magnum P.I. They wear WWII British Pacific Island type uniforms, or perhaps something like a big game hunter would wear, and their voices sound like John Houseman. They give a daily report of the security status. Anyone unauthorized attempts to enter the property will be met with a warning to divert course. If trespassers fail to comply, however, the dogs may use lethal force in attempting to detain and turn suspects over to the local authorities.

That's so funny:::: never had a burro  only cats and dogs.  I've seen however mules kicking lots of people when I was in the army (mountain troups were using mules back then)
