Princess Anne's Terrier Strikes Again
Wed December 31, 2003 10:33 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - Florence, a bull terrier belonging to Britain's Princess Anne, has attacked a royal servant only days after savaging one of Queen Elizabeth's dogs which had to be put down, Buckingham Palace said on Wednesday.
Anne, the queen's only daughter, has already been in trouble over the behavior of her three English bull terriers.

The princess was the first British royal to be convicted of a criminal offence in 350 years when she pleaded guilty in November last year after she failed to stop another of her dogs, Dottie, from biting two children.

She was fined $880 and told to pay the same again in compensation, but she could have faced six months in jail.

The latest episode of doggie bad behavior occurred at the queen's Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, eastern England on Saturday when Florence bit a maid on the leg. The servant was treated by a doctor. English bull terriers are a stocky breed of dog with powerful jaws.

The news is likely to prompt calls for the terrier to be destroyed since it now has a history of attacks -- the queen's corgi Pharos and now the maid. Buckingham Palace refused to comment on whether the dog would be put down.

The queen has bred corgis -- a short-legged Welsh farm dog with a fox-like face -- since being given a bitch called Susan for her 18th birthday. Her dogs can often be seen in news footage milling around the legs of the queen's guests.

People who can't control their dogs are idiots - whether they live in a double-wide on blocks, or a palace in Britian.

... I knew what this topic was all about before I even clicked on it [:D]

Both bitches should be put down.
