Dog Update

The dogs finally got their teeth into someone this morning. They jumped a fence to attack someone's pet and the woman of the house got bit trying to save her dog. (My understanding is that she wasn't too badly injured.) The husband chased the dogs off with a baseball bat and fortunately an Animal Services officer was up the street. The husband got the AS Officer, she called in a couple of Sheriff deputies, and two of the three dogs were removed.

Naturally, my neighbor is blaming me for this. He vows to get his dogs back. (Left unspoken is that he intends to let them loose again.) I left out the part where the dogs have possibly mauled and/or killed a cat, that they were tearing up my car again, and that they were trying to come through my front door to get at my family.

Despite it all, this is a good day, and hopefully, later, we will be taking my daughter to her first movie. They were supposed to be at the theater by now, but the stuff with Animal Services and the Sheriff deputies took too long to make the early showing. Alas!

What I'm up against.

This:




And two other dogs treated similarly. And the person that thinks that chaining a dog like this and leaving it unattended to chase children onto roofs and keep people hiding in their houses is a good idea, while the dog owner spends most of his time elsewhere. Also, the system that hamstrings local government from doing anything about such dangerous dangerous animals until they actually get their teeth into someone.

By the way, these pics were taken on my front porch, with the dog less than five feet away. He isn't all that friendly, I just happened to have a nice plexiglass door between me and him.
