A day in the life of a dangerous dog

Staffies. The dangerous, ugly menaces that are walking our streets, savaging our children and biting our postmen. To alert people to the threat they pose, here is a diary of a day in the life of a dangerous dog. 3:00 am: Threat to house and home The predator is awake.

5 Gift ideas for dogs
