Normally is pretty quick. I've had it a few times where Amazon just refund the money and let me keep the item (no pikey) but not for sellers on Amazon.

Piece in the local paper about some poor Golden Retriever getting savaged by a load of Alsatians in the park round the corner and appealing for information.

From the description I'm 100‰ sure that it was my Romanian neighbour. Should I grass? What would come of it?

What if the dogs end up munching on a kid?

Laughing out loud Mentioning their nationality makes more sense when I remember to post a link to the story. No racist.
