So imagine, you wake up one day and your tires are slashed. You are mad, but get on with life. I mean, what other choice do you have? Few weeks later, more tires on your street and in your neighborhood are slashed. This goes on for sixth months or so in a town in England. Finally, the people got fed up and worked together to find out what horrible vandal was doing it. Guess what they found? Jess, the dog who punctures tires.
Not quite what you were expecting, huh? Them either.
Seems Jess does not have a malicious bone in her body. She just likes to attack tires. Why? Well, why do you like chocolate? Why do you like rock music? I mean, we can’t actually ask the dog. We think it is just one of those quirks that the dog has. Jess is just the dog who punctures tires, plain and simple. Some dogs like to run in circles. Some dogs like to eat rocks. They are quirky like that. Jess just likes to way rubber tires feel in her mouth, so she chews them. Once the people found out it was a border collie and not some punk kid, it kind of changed everything.
Now Jess’ owners are far less likely to let her off the leash because they know she has the rather expensive habit of chewing on car tires. They are in the process of trying to find her a little toy version, I think. I just made that last part up, but it seems plausible.
