Well yesterday my mom let our inside dog outside to use the restroom because she’s had a stomach problem and wants out a lot, well this old man neighbor we have was IN OUR YARD cutting the grass on his hands and knees with scissors…the inside dog (Talon) starts barking at him and my mom is trying to calm him down, well this wakes up our skiddish outside dog Gina and she hates men especially in jumpers and hats…And especially him because he always waves a stick at them and snaps a belt at them when they bark at him (when he is in his yard of course) well Gina bit him and one puncture mark went through his skin to his bone (not hard because he is 86) and my mom finally got the dogs inside (she saw the whole thing) and she tells the guy he needs to see a doctor…
The doctor tells him he has to report the incident to the police because it was a dog attack. Well my mom is at home at this point and the pound shows up. Well because the old guy doesn’t remember which dog bit him, they take BOTH dogs. My parents and I are so upset. I miss my dogs.
Not only did we not know the guy was in our yard, and he got bit, but now we have to pay like 500 dollars in bills for our dog biting the guy who was trespassing, and our 2 female dogs have to be in quarrantine for 10 DAYS. We can’t touch them, but we can visit them and say “hey” … not gonna happen. That is sooo cruel. Just a tease to them.
If this guy sues, it’s gonna be so stupid. I don’t think he will though. It’s just rediculous because my mom saw the whole thing and KNEW which dog bit him. She put them in the paddywagon and the dogs were soo scared. She didnt want the pound putting them in there because they use that noose thing.
Just wanted to share my story. It sucks. I don’t really care for pity though.
Just a warning…Even if someone breaks the law by going onto your property unauthorized, you still have to get the blame if your dogs bite them. Grrr. :crying:
Back to my knitting… hurrumph.
