Some difficulty for Pittsburgh Steelers unhinged linebacker Joey Porter this morning; apparently two of his dogs — a pit bull and a mastiff — escaped from Porter's residence and killed a miniature horse at a nearby farm. The horse, being miniature, was actually smaller than each of the dogs, so that probably wasn't pretty.
We'd like to express surprise that Porter's dogs are a pit bull and mastiff; we would have absolutely pegged him for a chihuahua or pomeranian guy. Porter has apologized for the incident, saying, "I am not sure how the dogs escaped. We have a very secure yard with a six-foot fence around it and this has never happened before. I have reached out to the owners of the horse and will do whatever I can to help them get through this very unfortunate situation."
But the real story? Well, the horse had been talking about the dogs, about how they weren't so tough, and the dogs just took that as a sign of disrespect, you know? And the dogs AREN'T GOING TO BE DISRESPECTED. Hey, they come into THEIR house and start hatin'? Ya'll better expect to get your neck chomped, WOOF WOOF!
