In Lovejoy, Texas a 52-year old man has been sentenced to three years in prison for firing a crossbow after a huge dispute over a breed of the neighbor's dog last Thanksgiving.
While the victim, George Hadley, claimed that his dog was a poodle, the neighbor, Kenneth Cockerell said it was a "Dober Pincherman" and told his neighbor to keep the dog away from him as he didn't want to be bitten while coming home late at night.
Over the weeks the argument grew more and more heated and after a huge meal and coming home late Thanksgiving night from an all night bar, Cockerell apparently stepped in some dog shit.
He then began throwing rocks at his neighbor until Hadley came out, slightly inebriated himself, just in time to have a rock crash over his head.
Reportedly, there was a big stink about the Dober Pincherman's hockey when the "Pincherman/Poodle argument began all over again and the fact that a poodle couldn't shit that much.
The incident concluded with Cockerell staggering into the house and taking a shot at Hadley with a crossbow.
Police report that Cockerell will not say where he got the crossbow but they did report that the dog was a miniature collie.
