Three Cheers For Judge David Aubrey QC!

Andrew Blennerhaccett, defending, said the dog had never behaved in a way that caused Nimmo to believe he caused a risk to members of the public. He said Tyson had been a “placid and affectionate family pet.”
But Judge David Aubrey QC asked: “Why was the dog called Tyson? I assume he was called Tyson after the boxer Mike Tyson.
I would like to know why an affectionate, placid dog was called Tyson. Let’s get real for a moment.
And yes, it's yet another American Bulldog. A pity that the pussy pass came into play here - her jail sentence should not have been suspended.

Not all dogs called Tyson have a bad rep. My neighbour had a collie cross called Tyson and he was the sweetest and friendliest mutt you could ever hope to meet. The name doth not necessarily make the dog. Bad owners on the other hand...

No, indeed not.

But it's a clue to the potential for trouble, when laid alongside postcode, dress, demeanor and attitude of the owner!
