postheadericon Man Shoots Dog At NH Rest Stop After His Dog Comes Under Attack

HOOKSETT, NH — As a concealed carrier who does a fair bit of traveling, few things are less fun than a rest stop. Although some of them are well-surveilled, some aren’t, and the constant arrival and departure of travelers means that maintaining the situational awareness every carrier has to have takes an effort that is far above average.

Even more frustrating, there is more to maintaining that awareness than just the human traffic — animals need to get out and do their business and stretch their legs, too.

Sometimes, those animals don’t get along, as one concealed carrier found out the hard way.

The Boston Globe reports that a man taking a break at a rest stop in New Hampshire was walking his small dog when a large, aggressive dog in another vehicle noticed the small dog and leapt out the vehicle to assail it.

The big dog clamped on to the little dog and stayed there.

The owner was mortified, and did all that he thought to do to free his dog without killing the larger dog. However, it did not seem that anything the owner was doing was going to work, and his pet’s life was in jeopardy.

So, to save his animal’s life, he shot the large dog and killed it.

There are two things that would have completely prevented this situation, and neither of them are the owner’s fault, here.

  1. The owner of the large dog could have ensured that his/her large, obviously aggressive, animal was properly restrained for such a high-traffic area.
  2. The owner could have been paying attention enough to come and resolve the violence his/herself.

Since this is a rest stop, it’s reasonably fair to assume the owner was likely stretching, relieving his/herself, etc., but if that is the case, refer back to #1.

What a shame.

postheadericon FlashRouter Flash Special: Get a New Roku 3 or AppleTV Under $25

Want Better Streaming? Get a Better Wireless Router!

One of the very best reasons to purchase any new router is to enhance your home entertainment and streaming video/music experience. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more provide solid HD entertainment but to get the best viewing experience you must have the correct router in place.

Many may have received the gifts of Netflix subscription, Hulu Plus Subscription, Pandora, Slacker, or Amazon Prime over this holiday season. Perhaps your viewing experience is not all you hoped. Are you limited to viewing on your computer alone? Is the quality of your video suffering from a slow wireless connection? Perhaps you are noticing buffering with your High definition (HD) streaming.

How Can a Better Wireless Router Improve Netflix Quality?

Even for those with a powerful Internet connection, without the appropriate router for your specific needs, your ability to stream the content you desire may not be up to par.

At FlashRouters we convert personal class/SOHO wireless routers to more powerful business class routers with special Quality of Service controls and wireless extender features. This means that you can enhance your streaming experience…

Many of our educated customers are aware of security and anonymity concerns as well, and would therefore like to integrate a VPN connection into their network while also streaming the content they desire. VPN connections require a very large amount of processing power, and combined with any streaming needs, a user will need a truly powerful router to complete this setup without any buffering or access issues.

This is why we are now offering an all-encompassing streaming solution to FlashRouter customers so they can not only get a better router, but a better Internet experience on all devices in their home network.

Using VPN with a Streaming Player/FlashRouter Combo

Not only do you get the high-powered router and the big streaming player savings, but you get 3 months of expert technical support to make sure your system is humming.

Normally many of these devices would be unable to connect to the Internet through a VPN service. This meant that you could not encrypt and anonymize your Internet traffic on these devices for general privacy, nor could you access the content you desire if you were not in a specific geographical location. A FlashRouter will allow you both these features.

Once you integrate your FlashRouter with one of the 30+ supported VPN Providers including , PrivateInternetAccessHideMyAssIPVanish, StrongVPN, & Overplay, you can very easily connect any streaming player to your FlashRouter network, either wired or wireless, and send all data and traffic through the VPN tunnel for full anonymity and to unblock your favorite content.So upgrade your entire home network today with a brand new FlashRouter and streaming player.

Note: This is a limited time offer. This deal applies to new orders only and cannot be honored for orders previously placed. We have limited quantities available of each player so once it goes out of stock, you are out of luck. If you have a preference for streaming player savings be sure to snatch up your media player at these unbeatable prices before they are all gone.
