Bad Dog...

R Next Door was in the park this morning, when an Akita went for a squirrel, and snapped off a bit of its tail. Very scary, and I've never heard her shriek SO
hideously. She turned on the owner, saying she should be arrested, and if the squirrel had died, there's a £500 fine, etc. The woman, who is in some sort of  mobility scooter, was terrified, and chugged off. I was just standing with my jaw swinging, through it all. I tend to freeze when alarmed.
She went on to say that the woman deserved to be disabled and she hoped she'd die soon. I said she'd draw bad luck on herself by talking like that, but she thinks that God understands and approves. Och... She also reckons that the squirrel is now doomed to die, because they can't survive the winter without a full tail to wrap themselves in. I don't believe that's true, but no use disagreeing with her.
Watched the first episode of HOUSE OF CARDS, series 6, and it was OK, but whatever  odious stuff Kevin Spacey has done, he's a riveting actor, and the show is poorer without him. Robin Wright is excellent, though, and I liked the touch of woowoo that's been introduced.
