I have received threats too... even on this forum ROFL.
I had a crazy ex who wanted to kill me. He has even tried to set another girl on fire after tying her to a chair.
The fact is he is a looney. If he wanted to get me so badly, he would shoot my dog anyway.. or throw it baited steak.
why isnt he locked up after attempted murder? teach your dog not to eat from anyone except from you or your partner, if you have one.
