A long-standing neighborhood conflict over roaming dogs escalated when a 74-year-old man fired a shotgun out a window of his home, killing a loose Chihuahua and landing himself in jail on criminal charges, according to police.
Mueller leveled a semiautomatic .410-bore shotgun loaded with bird shot out an opened window and shot the animal on the street at a corner of his property, police Lt. Dave Parker said. Faux Pas was about 20 feet away from the window.
A neighbor outside shoveling snow heard a shot, looked over and saw the dog, Parker said. The man told police the small dog was "bleeding and squirming in the snow," Parker said. He got into an argument with Mueller about shooting the dog, then Mueller came out and bagged the then-dead dog, he said.
"I really didn't mean to make a killing shot on it. I just wanted to tickle it, is all I did, and I missed tickling it," Mueller said. "I'm sorry for shooting the dog, but I'm glad it's gone. It's just been a pain in my side here for a long time and those people just wouldn't do nothing about it."

Am I the only one seeing the irony of the dog named Faux Pas?The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

"But the problem of it is that when you keep a female dog out like that, other dogs are going to come into your yard. What he's saying is that my dog is out of control and running through the neighborhood. What I'm trying to tell him is, 'The only reason my dog was at your house was because you're keeping a bitch in heat outside.' "Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

surprised that an eagle didn't mistake the chihuahua for a rat and eat it

This guy should have been arrested and should pay restitution. He deserves at least 30 days in jail. Keep in mind I have a limited ammount of information. That chihuahua could have been in attack mode.I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
