    Forget about Dog Bites Man. Relegate Man Bites Dog to the back pages. Today we are dealing with Fish swallows dog, an item which reaches us by way of Moscow.

    The dog was swimming across the Pechora River to join its master when it vanished, leaving only a ripple. The dog's master, who was fishing at the time, hauled in his net and found it contained a giant pike. He looked closely at its mouth and said to himself (probably) "Thereby hangs a tail."

    Yes, it was Fido (or the Russian equivalent). The dog struggled out after the fish was cut open, and, according to Radio Moscow, hurled itself at the pike, "barking excitedly."

    It is often difficult for fishermen to tell stories about the one that got away. In this case, Radio Moscow notwithstanding, will it be any easier to tell about the one that didn't?

    Its reported as being a true story out of Moscow back in the later 1990's:stickfight:

    It would have had to happen real quick as I agree with ya--I never seen no dog that could breath under water yet myself!:cheers:

    And the dog's swimming.......as dogs do......with its head out of the water......but supposedly the HEAD of the dog was down the fish's mouth?! I guess that's where my problem is.....


    I go back to "We were trying to save the dog....but we didn't have time....the squirrels attacked him too fast! YOU WEREN'T TRYING TO SAVE THE DOG! YOU WERE TOO BUSY SAYING....OH MY! THERE'S SQUIRRELS EATING THAT DOG! DID YOU REALLY HAVE TIME TO THINK.....I SHOULD DO SOMETHING!"

    HAHAHAH! Good times Pman! Good times!

    You know the difference between a Northern Fairy Tale and a Southern Fairy Tale, don't you?

    A Northern Fairy Tale starts out, "Once upon a time....."

    And a Southern Fairy Tale starts out, "Y'all ain't gonna believe this sh......."

    I will only say this, in summer of 96' I was fishing on Waynetta lake I was watching a couple of ducks swimming to shore a male in front several ducklings in the middle and a female on the tail end. There was a huge splash I saw a tail of a large fish and the female was gone and did not come back. That lake is famous for it's muskies the state record at that time came out of that lake and it is my guess that is what got the duck. There is a store in town near the lake with a muskie caught there with a regulation size football IN it's mouth. So possible yes IMO.

    WAIT a MINUTE!!!! Are we talking ducks or dogs here! I have seen small ducks eaten by Muskys. Not dogs! Plus as Parker said....dogs have to breathe! Maybe the Russian should have stated the size of the mongrel!:cool:
