George, the great white hunter

When we were out this afternoon George decided to adopt big fierce hunty dog mode. Which came a surprise to the pheasant that stalked across our path.

When George returned empty-mouthed I said, 'It's just as well, George. I'm not sure if it's pheasant-hunting season.'
'Pheasant-hunting season?'
'Yes, you're only allowed to hunt at some times of the year.'
'Correction: you're only allowed to hunt at some times of the year.'
I looked at him. 'What are you talking about?'
'I'm a dog; I can hunt at any time.'
'But I can't.'
'But you weren't hunting.'
'I'm not sure that would stand up in a court of law.'
'Why not? It's perfectly logical.'

Alas, poor George. He has a lot to learn about British law and its logic.

It would be an interesting test case though. :-)

Its still just the season I think, and hunting with just one dog is OK. Not that you are ever going to catch any pheasants that way - try rabbits.

George's logic sounds perfectly sound to me. Of course, he would need just the right lawyer to convince a judge of this:)

Yeah, I would like to see a test case on dogs hunting laws.

Luckie will be eternally incarcerated if there are hunting seasons for chipmunks, rabbits and squirrels.

I don't remember if it was hunting season the time I took down a pheasant. I was taking husband to work as I needed our only car for the day and the bide flew right into my grill. Hubby said, "You can pick him up on the way homw and cook him for dinner."

He was joking.

We had pheasant for dinner that night. He had fogotten that a friend had given us a pheasant and it was in the freezer. I didn't remind him.

With my logic i could donfuse them maybe, furtheron?

Rabbits? George is frightened of rabbits.

I could be his attorney, rose.

Luckie could just sit and look appealing, nitwit, and even the most hard-hearted judge would be unable to condemn.

That's my feeling too, jams.

Oh no! Does he still think he was eating roadkill, katney?!
