Doggie Drama

Animal Services has been prowling the neighborhood. Why, you ask? It would seem that a woman was walking her dog off leash at the park down the road. A grumbly old man took issue with the fact that it is not an off leash park and decided that the best way to deal with it was to approach the dog. And kick it.

The owner took issue with the abuse of her animal and kicked the old man in return. He then called the police. And now Animal Services loves our neighborhood.

What is it with people anyhow?He could have told the lady to leash the dog if its that important to him. Oh well.

Val, when will you learn not to deal with conflict by kicking people - especially old men??

People are so funny....and so the same wherever you are it seems! Rules are made and enforced for every conceivable situation -- provides good jobs for lots of people!

geez, you should move to the rurals. When we mmoved to the Niv, our old man neighbour was so awful that he threatened to shoot at our house AND AT MY HUSBAND!

I shoulda kicked him.
