A plucky foot-high Jack Russell terrier named George saved five New Zealand children from two marauding pitbulls, but was so severely mauled in the fight he had to be destroyed, according to his devastated owner.
George was playing with the group of children as they returned home from buying sweets at a neighborhood shop in the small North Island town of Manaia last Sunday when the two pitbulls appeared and lunged toward them, his owner Allan Gay said.
"George was brave - he took them on and he's not even a foot high," Gay told The Associated Press. "He jumped in on them, he tried to keep them off.
"If it wasn't for George, those kids would have copped it."

Just zoomed in to look up our Model of the Month "Eacatman."
Besides looking cute, great smile and bod. His profile is Sarcastic, irreverant, cynical, disingenuous and a wind up merchant who likes to take the piss.
I'm in love with him already. Wonder what made him put himself up for Model? = other than mischief.
HaHa You've brightened my day. :)
Would love to see you with long hair.
Is This Mr Bean?
Or Jim Carrey on a acid trips?
No. It is our Foreign Overseas Minister David Milliband. He is visiting you at the moment. He looks and acts like Mr Bean but twice as thick and with less social graces.
He has just been to India and broken the Guiness Book of Record of insulted and offended the most people in the least possible time.
This really is his image. Considers himself the next Prime Minister in waiting. He's visiting you at he moment. Could you keep him? please.
A hill farmer has a cunning plan to rid his fields of a plague of rabbits. Either that or he has cabin fever and has been sniffing the silage.
Paul Coppen, 69, who owns a hill famr in Durham and supplies London's oldest restaurant with pedigree beef, was struggling to keep an army of rabbits from stripping his pastures bare.
So in an attempt to gain the upper hand, he camouflaged his vintage Massy Ferguson tractor as a cow - complete with a firing platform and a gunslit from which to blast the unwary bunnies.
He admitted the disguise - a black and white heifer painted on a wooden board fixed to the side of the vehicle - was not entirely foolproof.
He said: "One of my neighbours, Stan Mitchell, came up with the idea and helped me out, and I just went with it. I hoped the rabbits would ignore the fake cow, thinking it was just another member of the herd, thereby presenting a stationary target for the rifleman as I drive about the farm.
"A driver-cum-rifleman was cunningly camouflaged behind a picture of a tree above the cow. Maximum angle of fire was achieved by pointing the air-rifle through a horizontal slit above the cow, not unlike the firing positions in Second World War pillboxes.
"It has to be said that not all rabbits are entirely fooled. Whereas cattle obviously do move around, trees usually don't and that may be a problem."
Mr Coppen has farmed at White Close Hill, near Bowes in County Durham, since 1975. Beef from his herd of pedigree Belted Galloways - an ancient breed probably derived from Celtic stock - is supplied to Rules, of Covent Garden, London's oldest restaurant.
"I won't pretend this device is going to be the be all and end all of rabbit control - but it does seem to startle them somewhat and stops them from scampering away too quickly, which give us a chance to have a shot at them.
"Luckily, no cows have been accidentally shot so far and Granite Brain, the stock bull, has not displayed any amorous or belligerent intentions towards the glamorous heifer depicted on the side of the tractor."
Over 500,000 lost their jobs in the USA in November alone.
I know we are all suffering the credit crunch and that ther are more of you over there than here. But still, half a million in one month. YIKES!!!
I do have a Universal love and concern fro everyone. Polticians should be for people and the stability of their nation first.
No end in sight yet, despute the billions. Hope it turns around and hope you are all alright. Would like to know how you are all doing and who is getting caught up with it. Nows the time to reach out and network and work together. Find solutions as a community. Not feeling ashamed or embarrased and isolated in your troubles. Despite differences lest keep praying for each other and caring.
How Do You Like Your Eggs?
Jill and John got married. John thought this would be a "marriage of the 90's" -- equal roles for equal partners. So, the first morning back from their honeymoon, he brought Jill breakfast in bed. Jill wasn't impressed with his culinary skills, however.
She looked disdainfully at the tray, and snorted, "Poached? I wanted scrambled!"
Undaunted, the next morning, John brought his true love a scrambled egg. Jill wasn't having any of it.
"Do you think I don't like variety? I wanted poached this morning!"
Determined to please Jill, the next morning he thought, "third time's a charm" and brought her two eggs -- one scrambled and one poached. "Here, my love, enjoy!"
Jill looks at the plate and says, "You scrambled the wrong egg."
I thought the usual answer to how do you like your eggs in the morning was Fertilized.
Recently scientists for Health suggested that men should take a look at their beer consumption, considering the results of a study showing the presence of female hormones in beer.
The theory is that drinking beer makes men turn into women. To test the findings, 100 men were fed twelve pints of beer each.
It was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, could not drive, argued over nothing, refused to apologize when clearly in the wrong and could no longer stand up when taking a pee. Not meantion man boobs.
No further testing is planned.

1.THE wise bride will permit a maximum of two brief sexual experiences weekly ? and as time goes by she should make every effort to reduce this frequency. Feigned illness, sleepiness and headaches are among her best friends in this matter.
2.MOST men are by nature rather perverted, and if given half a chance, would engage in quite a variety of the most revolting practices, including performing the normal act in abnormal positions, mouthing the female body and offering their own vile bodies to be mouthed in turn.
3.A SELFISH and sensual husband can easily take advantage of his wife. One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: Give little, give seldom and above all give grudgingly. Otherwise what could have been a proper marriage could become an orgy of sexual lust.
4.JUST as she should be ever alert to keep the quantity of sex as low as possible, the wise bride will pay equal attention to limiting the kind and degree of sexual contacts.
5. MANY men obtain a major portion of their sexual satisfaction from the peaceful exhaustion immediately after the act is over. Thus the wife must ensure that there is no peace in this period for him to enjoy. Otherwise he might be encouraged to soon try for more.
6. A WISE wife will make it her goal never to allow her husband to see her unclothed body, and never allow him to display his unclothed body to her.
MANY women have found it useful to have thick cotton nightgowns for themselves and pyjamas for their husbands ? they need not be removed during the sex act. Thus, a minimum of flesh is exposed.
7.ONCE in bed, the wife should turn off all the lights and make no sound to guide her husband in her direction, lest he take this as a sign of encouragement.
8.WHEN he finds her, she should lie as still as possible. Bodily motion could be interpreted as sexual excitement by the optimistic husband. Sex, when it cannot be prevented, should be practised only in total darkness.
9. DO not encourage him ? nudity, talking about sex, reading stories about sex, viewing photographs and drawings depicting or suggesting sex are the obnoxious habits the male is likely to acquire if permitted.
10.IF he attempts to kiss her on the lips she should turn her head slightly so that the kiss falls harmlessly on her cheek instead. If he lifts her gown and attempts to kiss her any place else she should quickly pull the gown back in place, spring from the bed, and announce that nature calls her to the toilet.
11. IF the husband attempts to seduce her with lascivious talk, the wise wife will suddenly remember some trivial non-sexual question to ask him.
12. SHE will be absolutely silent while he is huffing and puffing away ? she will lie perfectly still and never under any circumstances grunt or groan while the act is in progress.
13. AS soon as the husband has completed the act, the wise wife will start nagging him about various minor tasks she wishes him to perform on the morrow.
14. CLEVER wives are ever on the alert for new and better methods of denying and discouraging the amorous overtures of the husband.
15.Arguments, nagging, scolding and bickering prove very effective if used in the late evening about an hour before the husband would normally commence his seduction.
15. BY their tenth anniversary many wives have managed to complete their child-bearing and have achieved the ultimate goal of terminating all sexual contacts with the husband. By this time she can depend upon his love for the children and social pressures to hold the husband in the home.
OK who said it wasn't much different today? Did I hear a gruntle in the bikeshed? lol
Congratulaions America for the govt to take on the home owner loans and business loans to secure the common people and let the banks, investment companies and insurance companies to burn their own boats if they sink or swim.
Afterall it is only what the companies have been doing. selling off their loans to others then selling other loans. Bit like a pyramid system. And it is not losing govt money as they have bought the loans so the loans are paid to them. Unlike pouring trillions into the investment business just for them to gamble it wrong again and hope for a turn around which may not happen ina depressed market.
Also it was admitted the other day that no one in the city understood the Hedge Fund system. Just left it to the golden boys to sell it and get on with it.
I am mildy reminded of the pea and three cups scam and dexterity and blather of the scam merchant.
Bang Bang. isn't it wonderful that such high up intelligent professional people get taken in by the lowest trick. I said the Endowment Mortgages wouldn't pay back when they were introduced in the 80s and lose their value. and all were investing in each other. insurance firms into insurance firms into futures into investment banks etc etc. It is a big pyramid of nothing which always eventually collapses.
But the gov't should secure the well being of the common citzen and common business as they are the ones who vote for them and who pay their wages. No wages for the common man, no wages for Mr President and the rest of the staff and egg heads.Gamble what you want amd play tricks on each other. Just As long as the normal man and the normal economy is not affected.
But well done America govt in rescuing its own people and small businesses.
been suggesting it for weeks. Come on Gordon, stop pouring trillions into a well and gamblers and tricksters. Secure everday businesses, homes and jobs. You know it makes sense.
good luck all of you.
Osama Bin Laden sent Mr Bush a coded message to let him know he was still alive
Bush is baffled even the FBI, CIA and NASA cannot decipher it. They turn to Britain and ask MI-6 for help. MI-6 reply "Tell the President he's holding it upside down."
Don't blame me blame the bf, he sent this last night.
He's back. and asleep.
Doesn't he look cute?
My Lover is back and I love him and adore him. He kept the sim card with all my messages from the few years back in his wallet. Kept putting it in his phone and kept reading them. Aw!! got a BIG LOVE for him. and he for me. he missed me. Love him to bits.
Now go. Sneak out quietly. Gonna love him some more.Took some time to get him back a few feet can be too deep and wide to cross because of pride. Crossing the street has been hard and too many times we talked about the price of bread before moving on.I'm not going to let him go this time.
Nina Simone is playing in my head.
A Tribute to Paul Newman
The news of Paul Newman's illness has come across the pond. What stands out for me and what gives me a lot of respect for him is his quiet dignified approach to this and his choice of privacy not making a publicity out of it (modern "celebrities take note)and being with his family first.
Very Sad for those who grew up watching him. One of the old greats.
God Bless You Paul and your family at this time.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof must be one of my favourites. What's your tribute memory?
CONGRATULAIONS MANNY AND STEVE ON GETTING WED TODAY 26/07/2008

YOU'RE SIMPLY THE BEST
I have just won some full extended compensation - back dated for an incident which caused me to lose my position and work a few years ago.
I feel I have won the money - but no the point.
I am/was a professional and raised bad practice and lack of management addressing bad practice. I suffered persecution and threats yadda yadda. But because if the practice I suffered a serius incident which put me off work. because the input and professionalism was too late and bad my condition worsened. Which meant i had to go into "survival" mode (Sell my grandmother to white slave traders. Send my pets to work down the mine etc) I also got further harassment and persecution for raising the point that the input was lousey and conterproductive.
it has now taken over 7 years to get to the point that "Yes" it was bad practice, Yes they did screw up and Yes the input was all lousy. I've got compensation and back dated. But the situation and bad practice remains the same with the consequences that others also lose.
My advocate said "Smile. You've got the Money" Does anyone get the fact that that's not the point?"
Bit Numbed and Stunned. I don't Wanna be an Anarchist - It just comes naturally to me.
Meeting is in two weeks, bring your own flag and rattle and soap box. We are going to start a revolution. The 2nd Peasant's Revolt Is Long Overdue.
Ok. I have been writing my romantic comedy for some time now. Everyone positive and loving what I have written. The disk has opened everytime and yes I have versions backed up. But the perfect proof read one is one one disk. It has been opened and changed and checked and verified right up to half an hour before it was going to be printed. It has opened on every machine. Until I opened it to be printed and NaNa. It wont open anywhere. Every other disk will open except the one ready for printing which has been proof read. Friend has organised me meeting with a Head of BBC drama and the ***** thing wont open.
Life is Comedy or if Life Tragedy? I think mine is a Tragic Comedy. BooHoo!!!
SCAM USING SYMPATHY AND LOYALTY TO TROOPS.
Have received a scam in email asking for me to use my bank details to launder some money. Ok bAd anough when from some Herbert in Upper Niger or some Mutt in Mongolia. But this says he is a genuine member of the USA troops in Iraq tring to get money out.
Bullshit as usual but just incase there is a Country Bumpkin among us or the resident town fool may be taken in.
Just thought I'd raise it up. Of course there are problably lots of rich money launderers among us who have given their bank details over. Let me know who you are so I can send you a wink. (lol :)_
See following as the post:
Hello Dear J,
How is everything going, I hope great? Though I have not considered
this medium to be the best manner to have approached you on this issue
being that the internet has been greatly abused over the recent years and
is very unsecured for informations of vital importance.
I have decided to take the chance seeing that no other means could have
been faster and more efficient than the E-mail. I write to you
irrespective of the fact you do not know me, but please do consider this
letter as a request from a brother in need of assistance.
My name is Philip Adams (Sgt) an American soldier, I am serving in the
military of the 1st Armored Division here in Iraq. As you know we are
being attacked by insurgents everyday and car bombs, it will come worst
now Saddam Hussein was executed. During one of our rescue Mission we
came across a safe that contains the total sum of $26,100,000:00 (Twenty
hundred thousand Us Dollars) that belongs to the revolutionaries, which
I believe they use in buying weapons and ammunitions, and it was
agreed by all party present that the money will be shared amongst us. You
can go to this web link to read about events that took place here:
Out of the total fund my share was $8,700,000:00 (Eight Million,Seven
Hundred Thousand US Dollars). I am seeking your assistance to evacuate
my share of the money, which is $8,700,000:00 out of here to you, in as
much as you can assure me that my own share will be safe in your care
until I complete my service here.
This is not stolen money,and there are no dangers involved, as I have
made arrangements with an UN representative based in Asia who promised
to deliver the fund to any of my choosing destination. I shall be
compensating you with 25% while the rest shall be for me for my investment
purposes.One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this
matter with a third party, should you have reasons to reject this
offer, please destroy this e-mail as any leakage of this information will be
too bad for me. I do not know for how long we will remain here, and I
have survived two suicide bomb attacks, which prompted me to reach out
for help because I will be migrating to you to invest and start a new
life not as a soldier anymore.
Please if this proposal is acceptable by you, kindly send me an e-mail
via firstname.lastname@example.org signifying your interest including your
most confidential telephone numbers for quick communication also your
home address where the fund would be delivered.
As soon as I receive your email with the information, I will furnish
you with full details on when and how the fund shall be delivered to you
by the diplomat and he will make a contact with you before anything
Waiting for our urgent reply.
Sgt. Philip Adams.
