mmmm, cocker spaniel...

There was a fairly hilarious story in the paper today about an alligator knocking on a woman's door. The hypothesis is that the alligator followed the woman home after she took her cocker spaniel for a walk around the alligator's pond.

There are two reasons this story is funny. First, the image of the alligator banging its head on the door, hoping against hope that the fluffy, tasty dog will come bounding out. I admit I'm not the hugest fan of cockers--of all breeds, they account for the most human bites most years.

Second, the dumb lady walking her dog around a pond where a huge alligator lives. It's like posting a sexy profile on MySpace for your 11-year old and giving out your home address. I had friends who lived on an island off the coast of Georgia and they knew to keep their pets inside or under close supervision at all times. Escaped pets regularly become gator food.
