    Maybe his neighbor has a good reason to put two rounds in his chest and one in his head too.

    Don't you think there are more serious issues out there than someone shooting someone elses dog!? After all a dog is just a dog. You can get them a dime a dozen. As far as I am concerned the only good dog is a dead dog!!!
