The problem is that my neighbor is my brother.. His dogs have chased my chickens. I fired a warning shot and they have not been back to bother the chickens thankfully! I told him about it and he seemed unphased. Now his dogs are coming into my garden at night and stealing my vegetables!! Yes, my vegetables!!!! In particular, my spaghetti squash. It is my first year to plant that variety and haven't even gotten to harvest any yet because they steal them just before they are ripe. This morning I woke up to find that they had stolen deer antlers (off of our porch) that we use for rattling during deer season.. I walked over to his house to get them and saw 3 more squash stolen and destroyed.. My blood is boiling now!!! I texted him because he can't get calls at his work. He says sort of jokingly I assume, that it's payback for my dogs pooping in his yard. REALLY!!! There is no comparison as far as I am concerned. I told him he could keep the poop because we don't eat the poop. Only the squash...I asked that he please put them up at night. He says he has no pen. I suggested a leash. Then he says well, his dogs must have followed mine home because they visit his house at night. Uhmm, no they don't, because mine are leashed every night, all night. And it is because he complained about the poop. I complied gracefully and keep them leashed. No problem. My dogs, my responsibility. Then I get home from work this afternoon and get ready to till my garden. Go to grab my gloves and one is missing. So is one of my husbands. I text him yet again. Yes he has seen the gloves and put them in the garbage.. Oh, come on!! They hadn't torn them up and one was almost brand new. He could have just asked if it was ours before tossing them. Wouldn't you think? He knows his dogs are thieves because he talks about all the stuff that's in his yard every morning.. I told him that I still love him, but that I don't want animals causing BS between us. I just wish he would take the initiative to do what's right. I leash mine at night because of poop. (It has been over a year since the pooping took place) His are causing actual monetary destruction. What gives? The warning shot worked for the chicken chasing, maybe I should sit up all night at the corner of my garden.
