She was still a mutt... and there's nothing wrong with that.

And, while that link might take you to a "Golden Lab", that dog that got hit in the TdF was a Yellow Lab.
I remember you now. Your the guy that flamed me about 4 months ago when you were being "etymologically correct."

Could very well be, though I think "flamed" is a little harsh... still, sounds like something I might say...
It appears you have a pretty good memory for an old guy
Be that as it may, I say a lot of things but show me I'm wrong and I'll freely admit it.
I have no problem with standing corrected. I mean, it's not like I'm from Texas or anything like that...

I think you are wrong continually correcting others. I find it extremely more beneficial to work on my ownself rather than spend the time cutting others down. When I went to the shrink for several years, she explained that people who continually cut others down usually have low self esteem and persist in cutting others down to try to make themselves feel better. I have no idea if that is your problem or not. THIS IS A BIKE FORUM, NOT GRAMMER SCHOOL! CORRECT SOMEONE ELSE.

Perhaps I'll learn to use the ignore button.

Definitely a yellow Lab.
And definitely some overreacting going on around here.

As to the question about the course marshals, they can't be everywhere all the time. The dog's owner may have had the dog secured when they came by.

Then we have the Canine Hybred which performs ok or poorly on all surfaces depending on your attitude. Their rear dropout widths are variable and best left where they are found unless you are the owner in which case "leaving them" can become expensive. Their geometry is relaxed as the designer intends them more for show than go..........................................

It's obvious from the video that the dog was doping...

More obvious that the dog's owner was a dope.

I'm glad that's over. For a minute I thought I was at the "Advocacy and Safety" forum with the kids.
