The lady across the road has a large dog that escapes every single day and wanders around the neighbourhood....I wrote her a (friendly) note a couple of weeks ago because this dog is in our front yard nearly EVERY morning when I come home from school drop off and it has started making its way under our house and into our BACKYARD when the kids are playing
Since then, she has been leaving her gates WIDE open when she leaves for work and making no effort whatsoever. The dog was barking and growling at DS1 right out the front of our house the other day when he was trying to cross the road.
I can't seem to catch her at home so I wrote her another (very diplomatic) note.
If she does nothing again, I think I am going to have to call the coucil, although I don't want to....I can't have my children put at risk in their own backyard.
Regardless of my note, I KNOW she she knows the sog gets out because I have seen her reverse the whole way back up our street before in the morning, just as she has left to put it back in.
I feel bad about it all, do you think I am doing the right thing. She works for the local radio station....maybe I could ring their daily lost and found animal section.......
