Ok, here's my warning!!

Power outage tonight, for 3 hoursr. Went to the driveway, to see how many homes were out. Black everywhere. Saw a German Shepard, got down on my knees. Called the dumb dog, came really nicely, got the leash from Vic, dumbass dog came quietly. Hubby told me "It's the neighbor's dog", so I went across the street and banged on the door (it's their dog remember), they called the police because some insane person is banging on the door at 11 at night.

So...the cops come (cause I'm trying to break in during a power outage).. and the dog turns on the cop. Ok, he goes back to the car, I continue to cajole the dog, then he turns on Vic. Basically attacks him, as Vic is yelling for the cop to get the spray and subdue the dog.

And, at 2:00am, here Vic sits, bit up like a chew toy. Suffice to say, some dogs don't like men. Thank GOD, they like women, otherwise I wouldn't be here to tell this story...

Oh man! The dumb adjective doesn't belong to the dog, it belongs to the neighbors! Hope Vic heals nicely, and that your neighbors get a brain. Doesn't seem like the cops were too bright either.

Here's to electricity!

I'd laugh if the whole damn thing didn't make me cry. Stupid paranoid pet owners. Glad Vic is only slightly wounded. Is he repeating endlessly "no good deed goes unpunished" & giving you the stink eye?

OK, I've never actually attempted a break-in on anyone's residence before, but if I did, I'm guessing my first instinct wouldn't be to knock on the door and let them know I was planning on breaking in. Maybe people are just more polite about crime in the Chicago area?

People are awesome. I remember a few months after we moved out here, it was December and Connor was a baby. My beloved old mare, Sadie, had colic, and we had spent all night taking shifts with her, walking her so she didn't lay down and roll. She finally seemed better so we put her in the barn and got some sleep. She kept getting out of the barn and we kept putting her back in. I needed to run to town so Scott watched the baby. When I got back, it was dark. I asked Scott how Sadie was and he said he didn't know because he had been watching the baby and couldn't go out and check on her. So he went out in the dark, came back and told us she had died. My oldest daughter and I burst into tears and were inconsolable when there's a knock on the door. Its the cops. Sadie had gone down partially in the creek and someone driving by had called the cops and reported us for CONTAMINATING THE CREEK. Couldn't stop by and say "hey, did you know your horse died?" Nope. Instead turns us in for contaminating the creek.

I thought Scott was going to get arrested.

What about the cowering neighbors and their charming dog? Did they ever acknowledge their role in this?

I was home from school, one weekend, and I stopped by my Aunt and Uncle's place, just to drop some items off from my parents. I crossed the grass to the area where they were sitting. Suddenly this litte furball streaked across the yard and BIT me! I stood there in shock, until he started on my ankle. I pushed the dog off me, and looked to my Uncle for help, but they never got out of their chairs. I stood there bleeding like a stuck pig when it came after me again, so I yelled to get the hell off of me and kicked it. Then my Aunt got her fat butt out of the chair and throw me off her property for SWEARING!

I think the time on this message is EDT or 2:15 AM your time. I do not wish to be your employer today. Just take the day off. I think Vic can too. HRH Witan

1. You should be in bed by midnight
2. Most things like to bite Vic (including my bird)
3. You and police don't mix
4. Your neighbor is an idiot...that hasn't changed.
5. God probably turned your electricity off to teach you a lesson.. which is...
you should be in bed by midnight.

Dog bites are no joke, hon - hope he's had all his shots! Vic, I mean.

I've lived with big dogs for the past 20 years and it's a rare dog I'm scared of now, but when I was young I was terrified of them, right down to the puppies. In the early 60s for a blessedly brief period I had to walk three quarters of a mile in the dark every morning in every kind of dreadful weather, from my suburban apartment to the bus stop to catch a bus into Philly to work. The shortcut to the bus stop took me through an enormous housing complex, still and silent in the last frozen hour before dawn, windows mostly dark, nobody else on the street.

I don't remember why, if there was a services strike or some other factor at work, but that winter there were an unusual number of stray dogs in that area, ragged scrawny things, you saw them all the time. Problem was, on those cold lonely trudges over black ice and snow, I saw them in groups that I immediately recognized as packs; maybe not always all the same dogs but there was no doubt they were packs, working together, and the first realization of that is an adrenalin rush the likes of which is never forgotten.

I can't even remember how many there were at a time, seems like 30 but probably 6 or 8. Seems like more when you know they're deliberately encircling you, the footing is treacherous, and the little ones are nipping the heels of your boots and jumping and snapping at your face - or throat - while the big ones circle and watch. I never doubted that if I fell they'd be on me in a hungry rush. I couldn't stop thinking of those moments in dreams when you want to scream and you can't. Gave me nightmares and I wanted nothing to do with dogs for years and years.

I hope your neighbors get a whopping big fine.

Good thing you don't live in Detroit because,,,,

1. The dog would have been a Pitbull

2. Your neighbors would have shot you.

3. The cops would not have shown up.

4. Vic would be hamburger.

5. The Detroit Free Press would have given it one paragraph,,,(in the sports section)

I think that dog didn't care for Vic's anniversary gift either.

Love the Detroit one.....Maybe Kelly trained the dog to attack him after her anniversary present arrived.

What I wonder is if the dog was OK with you, but not the police officer or your husband, then what does the man in the family that owns this dog do to it to make it so angry against men?

So, don't suppose you'll get a thank you note or homemade pie as thanks for rescuing their dog?

Not sure I'd eat a homemade pie from them....

I've got to wonder...Here are people knocking on their door in the middle of the night...why did these people not go to see why their GUARD DOG wasn't barking and scaring them off???

probably because they are the kind of people who turn their dogs loose at midnight or 1 a.m. to roam freely for a few hours and then show up at their door at 6 or 7 a.m. Paper carriers HATE people who do that because they are at the mercy of those dogs running loose. I had a neighbor who did that. And somehow the police could never catch up with the dog.

Turns out, really wasn't their dog (which is why they called the cops on me, but you'd think after living there for 5 years, they would have SOME idea who I was).

It's owned by a guy down the street, he was "sorry", said it's never happened before (BS)....

Vic's ok, bloodied and swollen, had to get a tetanus shot and is on antibiotics for a few days

Guess it goes to show you, you try to be nice and it literally bites you in the a@#.

Nobody's ever bitten me in the a$$. Maybe I should be nicer?
