A friend send this to me. He says a bull terrier did it:



A joke, or is it for real?

The dog is on a high fiber diet.

Dogs have a history of chasing bikes. Now they have something else to gnaw on once they catch it.

Yeah, I do hope the dog is OK. I can't imagine eating carbon fiber is a good thing.

Once had a dog, off-leash in an area that definitely had leash law, run across the road straight into my rear wheel as I was booking about 25mph with a tailwind. Heard a bit of a twang and saw the dog got ejected somersaulting in my rear view mirror. Seems this could have happened the same way.

When I lived i Idaho I carried bear spray in my second water bottle cage on my road bike for bears and moose, maybe I should do that in PDX for dogs too?

Uhmmm..... Bull Terrier?........ Never mind the bike it mangled up, despite the sharp and splintery CF, but I sure hope that dog is not developing bad and scary tendencies.

Our doodle chewed every single thing in the house for two years. Probably causing thousands in damage if we cared to count it. He's not terrifying.

OP asks if this is real. Also want to know. If so, I will be sending it to all of my friends who go on and on about CF.

Yeah, hopefully. Would probably get stuck everywhere, poke holes in the "plumbing," and whatnot.

I wonder, though. If like a cat with a roll of toilet paper, the thing might well not eat any of it. Just the sheer, unfettered joy of destruction and mayhem. Have seen pets do a number on upholstered furniture, cracking open the coverings and sending the contents all over creation; and, with those, to my knowledge none of the contents were actually eaten.

Fifteen years ago I had a dog who would pull Kleenex out of the box one at a time. Loved it. Kind of a ritual, I guess. She would also tear open a new toy, rip out its fluff, and forever after ignore it - the fun part was over, as far as she was concerned. She was a 20# fluff ball and also not terrifying

^ Ah, so that's the perp, eh? A likely suspect! Completely chagrined after the talking-to. Or, more likely still, probably knew full well it was verboten and slumped the moment the two-legger walked into the room.

Imagine the big weepy eyes and what the "mumbling" would say if the little guy could talk:
"I didn't do it, Bob. Really, I didn't. It was a flood ... it was the Johnsons' cat, I swear. I had nothing to do with it."

It is a well known fact that dogs, and other pets, can have jealousy issues. The owner of this Specialized carbon fiber bike was getting too many miles and too much riding time taking away from the time with his/her bull terrier. The bull terrier waited for his/her opportunity and took care of the situation.

BTW I don't talk this way usually. I was channeling my inner Cliff Clavin.


What is the difference between a terrorist and bull terrier???


You can negotiate with a terrorist.
