Need to vent a little. I let my pittie out at lunchtime today to do her "business". She went out, relieved herself, then started her usual fenceline trot and sniff routine. When she got near a hole (more on that in a second), the neighbor's dog rammed its head and neck through, grabbed her ear, and tried to drag my dog through the hole. I managed to knock the other dog loose, and that started a general melee at the fence. I finally scooped up my dog and placed her in the outdoor kennel so we could both cool down. Called Animal Control, and he said that since both dogs were mostly still on their respective properties, there's not really anything that can be done. At least by them, anyway. Now, the hole. That got started by the neighbor's scruffy little terrier sized mutt. It dug under to visit and play with my Lab, and the bigger dog bashed through it one day while my dogs were inside. I think he was looking to explore the neighborhood, and picked the wrong direction. It was boarded over on their side after that, but some time between breakfast and lunch today their big dog ripped the board off in shreds. I bought a dozen pickets today and replaced anything that even looked questionable. Animal Control also said that the dog in question has had a few issues with dumping trash and trying to start fights when he's gotten out before, and the owners are surrendering him before he really does something bad like attack a person. I'm mad as hell at the neighbors still. We didn't speak before due to a couple of disagreements over noise (theirs not mine), and that sealed the deal. Sura is doing well. She has several stitches and a drain in her ear now, but is eating and drinking well and seems in good spirits. Better than mine, anyway.
