Dont like big dogs. If you cant drop kick the doggy 40 yds. he is too big to have.

What an awful way to go...Just a few loyal obedient dogs is all one needs...To have a pack of 7-10 large dogs is apparently risky.

I think it's safe to say he was not the Alpha. Cesar Milan should chime in on this one.

Interesting that they didn't identify the breed yet. If the dogs had any visual characteristics common to pit bulls, the media would have been all over it.

How can somebody afford to feed seven dogs in the first place?

Were it my family member I would have stressed the potential risks of owning multiple large-breed dogs...but would not stand in his/her way were they to ignore that advice.

All accidents are regrettable - it's the ones that are preventable that are truly tragic.

Would I find the jokes funny? Probably not - but I will never be able to control how anyone reacts to anything, nor do I want to.

"Deputies say two were shot when they approached officers aggressively and seven others were euthanized." = 9 The way the story is written appears to leave open the possibility there may have been even more that were neither shot nor euthanized, but at least nine.

Not that it matters much.

Dogs are generally a refection of the enviroment where they are rasied. I find it hard to believe that a bunch of lap-dogs got up one morning and decided to kill their owner. There must be more to the story.

If one or more of the dogs was a pitbull I'm sure that the headline would have been sure to say so. A dog is a dog until it's been labeled a "vicious" pitbull.
