The Carpetbagger Report � Blog Archive � Beat 'em for Jesus! The unhappy childhood of Dr. James Dobson

The Carpetbagger Report � Blog Archive � Beat 'em for Jesus! The unhappy childhood of Dr. James Dobson:
Even more alarming, Dobson admits in one of his books that as a child he arranged a fight between two mismatched dogs. The battle involved a tenacious bulldog and a "sweet, passive Scottie named Baby," and Dobson provoked it by throwing a tennis ball toward Baby. He writes what happened next: "The bulldog went straight for Baby's throat and hung on. It was an awful scene. Neighbors came running from everywhere as the Scottie screamed in terror. It took ten minutes and a garden hose for the adults to pry loose the bulldog's grip. By then Baby was almost dead. He spent two weeks in the animal hospital, and I spent two weeks in the doghouse. I was hated by the entire town."


No wonder James Dobson is such a complete nutcase. He got tortured even more than my friends and I as kids, and he went completely psychopathic after it. I don't feel sorry for him, but it's interesting how the monster was made.

I don't know who this Dobson is, but he doesn't seem to like dogs too much. Terribly sad.
