The next door neighbors - you know the old guy that pounds all day long, just accused our dog of climbing the fence and lunging at him.
|Full of energy, Laydee goes above and beyond|
Yes, last year, she climbed the fence when the husband was out in front - almost immediately, my husband built a taller fence that she cannot climb.
|Old fence / Taller fence|
You see, we're up against some prejudice. Laydee is a black lab with some pit bull terrier in her. I told my husband he should never mention that. People do not like pit bulls. It is true, she is standoffish and leery of strangers. She's very protective, which we like. They have 2 little fluffy white and gray dogs - cute as a button. We're big dog people and they are little dog people, so every big dog is fierce and mean. One time, the wife, told me she would have brought me over some tomatoes from her garden, but she is afraid of my dog.
|Laydee is a fun dog|
I don't need your friggin tomatoes!
|She is a cuddler and snuggler|
The next-door-neighbor man, whom I shall now call, Bob the Builder, started in at 7 am this morning, pounding and sawing. I try and ignore it because my husband likes him and because they both like to borrow each other's tools. OKAY, I get that. I find, the more I obsess over it, the more it bugs me.
|I can see, where small-dog people would think she is bad-ass.|
What I am irritated about, is him trying to blame my dog, who is almost ALWAYS inside with me except for occasional times when she wants to go out, but we never leave her out when we are gone. In the late afternoon, she likes to watch the UPS and FED EX trucks go by. She grabs her ball and shakes it at them.
|She always has to have something in her mouth|
Okay I admit - when the husband goes to work, I will allow Laydee out in the backyard to bark at him through the fence, as he pounds, and nails, and saws, and sands - and Slams the gate closed so hard, it rattles my living room wall. I say NOTHING.
I do believe my husband now realizes they are gunning for our dog. (His baby) We just have to make sure, she is always where she is supposed to be. As for her occasional barking and growling at him through the fence - TOUGH!
