Thread: Proud Gay Men Stole My Dog!

  1. #1

    Angry Men Stole My Dog!

    About 5 years ago Maxine, one of my Miniature Pinschers, went "missing" from my backyard for about a week. I put up posters *everywhere*, door knocked all over, contacted the vet, contacted the council and I searched around in the evenings but no luck.

    About a week later I was taking some DVDs back down the main street in Enmore (about 1km from where I lived) and it was dumb luck that I happened to look up at a 2nd storey building window across the road and I could see a small dog looking at me and bouncing up and down. My dog was the only dog I knew at the time that jumped like that when she was excited (i.e. wanted to go for a walk or she saw my sister's pet mice).

    I went across the road and knocked on the ground floor door and could hear someone coming down the stairs yelling "Did you remember the coffees?". The door opened and a *very* gay young man was standing at the door with Maxine in his hands who proceeded to howl when she saw me!

    I was happy and blurted out "Hey! You found my dog!!!" just as another man turned up with shopping bag and a coffee tray. Both men kept telling me I must be mistaken and that they'd had the dog for "years". When I told them I had put posters up and down this road (even under their door) their mood started to sour and they proceeded to move inside the door.

    I pushed the second guy out of the way and grabbed Max who was barking and squirming very loudly at this point in time. There was nothing but "You M* F**kers" and "Stay the f**k back" coming out of my mouth as I wrestled a stupid spikey collar off Max and dropped it on the floor. I was ready to beat these two guys to bloody pulps but I knew that if I put Maxine down she would get frightened and run away! With coffee spilled on the pavement and a crowd of people now looking I walked away with a happy, panting Max!

    Another week later I was sitting on my veranda and a women walking by stopped and asked me if that was the dog on the posters I had placed on the front of my house. This woman said she was walking to work in the morning and that she saw my dog running around with two guys trying to catch her. Apparently they finally cornered Max as she was frantically running back and forth between the side gate entrance and the veranda. When the woman asked what was going on the men said that the dog was "lost" and they didn't know where the dog lived. Right!

    I'm getting mad just thinking about it again ...


    Maxine about a month before she went missing ... Now who wouldn't want to steal her?

    I'm very glad to hear you got your little dog back safe and sound. Min Pins are great escape artists so it's a good idea to leave them inside the house when you go out.

    Sorry to say it but I personally took offence at the title of your post and the emphasis you place on the fact the men involved were possibly gay. Being ****sexual is based simply on sexual preference and has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact the men had your dog in their possession. I would find it just as offensive if you had said members of a certain religion, colour or race had taken your dog.

    It's 2009. Time we all learnt to be a little more tolerant.

    Glad you got your dog back
    I doubt being gay had anything to do with why these guys took her though.

    My apologies if anyone took offense, but I don't believe there was anything derogative or intolerant in the tone of the story. It was merely my observation or attribute of the situation ... Nowhere in the story do I imply that *all* gay men steal dogs, no would I even want to ...

    If a cowboy had taken my dog then it would be titled "Cowboys Stole My Dog", if someone with a gun took her the title would be "Men With Guns Stole My Dog".

    Escape artists ... yes they are! Unfortunately the bricks retainers had been removed from outside the fence!

    I also think the title is uncalled for. Their sexuality has nothing to do with the fact that they had your dog. If you had titled it "Two men" or "Two horrid men" or whatever would have been fine, but making comments about their sexuality, it's really not called for in this day and age!

    Ok, I can see that at least two people have an issue with the title so I've trimmed it to become a better community player.

    Anyway ... I thought I'd share a bad experience that had a happy ending. I'm glad I got my dog back and she's leading a happy, comfortable life as part of my family.

    Hmmm ... I changed the title of the original post, but it does not appear to have updated in the main thread listing!

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Geez ... Did you read the content of the story. Where are you picking up "****phobia" from? I titled the story that way because it's what happened ...

    Heck, I live on Oxford street and watch the Mardi Gras from my balcony! I have plenty of gay and bisexual friends that I go boxing, climbing and riding with ...

    As far as respect goes I think you're the one who has lost it ... Look at the amount of hate and rambling you've personally directed at me in your last post!
