Standard procedure is to defuse the situation by calming the situation down.
I recommend a judicious application of belly rubs to neutralise the threat, then remove the weapon to a safe location and replace with a chew toy

If he shoots and misses, will he go after the ball or reload?

Toss a handful of ham cubes just past his head, when he turns to follow them, you move in with a pincer tactic and do a fierce two-handed brisket rub.

WeRateDogs rubs me the wrong way from start to finish (except for the dogs, which are good). The company has the goose that lays the golden eggs yet still finds nasty ways to optimize egg exploitation. It changes the names of dogs it gets in submissions if they're too ethnic-sounding, for example. It's just a media business run by assholes capitalizing from free labor like countless other media businesses.

ferrygooddogs, on the other hand, is wholesome and adorable.

Dog Rates is run by a college kid from West Virginia. Where’s this about him changing dog’s names?

And yes, ferrygooddogs is awesome and just got another follower.

He hired staff and started selling merch and so on ages ago. WeRateDogs got profiled in Forbes, for Christ's sake.

https://slate.com/technology/2018/06/weratedogs-twitter-account-criticized-for-renaming-dogs.html

The hyper-curation and filtering and tweaking and streamlining of dog tweets for commercial exploitation doesn't really jive with the freewheeling "They're good dogs, Brent" vibe of the early days, is all I'm saying.

1) it didn't start out as a company, though by now I'm sure Matt Nelson has hired some people to help run the business
2) he promised to stop changing the dog's names after that kerfuffle (whether or not he did, I dunno)
3) Matt Nelson has always curated the account with an eye toward what will go the most viral and has been very up front about that. That's the whole reason he started the account in fact.
4) regardless of his personal politics he uses weratedogs to promote diversity and tolerance
5) the dogs are good

Yeah that was dumb of him and I hope he quit doing it; his accounts (and FerryGoodDogs) are like the only good things in the cesspool of social media.

Also two bits of Lando news

1. He got a new rain coat


2. He fell asleep on top of my arm with his head on my chest and it’s currently going numb but he’s so comfy and making adorable little noises as he dreams so I don’t want to move and wake him up gently caress it I guess I didn’t need that arm anyhow

Baby, I've had all my shots and I'm fine

Oh we've given up on walks for Pit Pat when it's below freezing. He's just too small and cold. We open the door in the morning and dangle him on an extended leash out the door until he does his business in the yard.

This morning he went outside, looked at me with a look of utter betrayal, and came right back in. The wind chill was -13.

How did he ever live as a hobo

I took Gulliver out this morning with the wind gusting and the real temperature around 0 (windchill around -12), my face felt frozen from the windchill. Gulliver has a nice double coat and doesn't seem to mind the cold and snow; in fact, snow is now one of his greatest joys, both for playing in and for eating.

I'm worried thread; my dad texted me that he and my mom are taking their Basset Bo to the ER, because when they got home from supper he wasn't able to walk. He hurt a disc in back last week, but he was on anti-inflammatories and seemed to be doing better. Hopefully a shot of steroids will fix him right up, but he's an old dog with a heart murmur so surgery isn't an option if it's something more serious
