Bad neighbors dog broke its chain and came into my yard AGAIN today. I was dumping a pail of chick poop from the brooder down the bank in my pasture and it came right at me....teeth bared and hackles up. Held the pail so I could stick its head in if it got any closer (2 feet is close enough!). My dog saw it and came flying after it....minor dog fight, at least my dog listens to me. Neighbor lady came and got ahold of it. Absolutely had it with this dog and these people. Tomorrow after the vet comes to check a horse, I go and apply for a pistol permit. This dog made its first trip here the first day they moved in. It has been here at least a dozen time, threatening every time, got ahold of a couple of guineas, gone after my family, ran my horses. It is so inconvenient to try and work with a shotgun in one hand. Animal control has done nothing...of all the times I called, they have gotten ONE ticket. The neighbor lady hates the dog, it belongs to her boyfriend. When I told him I had a legal right to shoot it, he threatened to shoot all of my animals. Jerk. At this point, if I could go and get the dog when they are not home, it would just disappear. Can't get near it though. I so hate living next to such a loose cannon of a guy, I know he has been in jail, not sure what for, I think drugs. He is a total wack job.
