Stitching To Calm The Nerves
I needed something quick and simple to stitch to calm the nerves.
We are having a major problem with a neighbour and his aggressive German Shepherd that got loose yet again and started running around our property. When I tried to open my front door, the dog started barking, hackles up and lunged at me. I had to call our local animal control. Fortunately, the officer arrived while the dog was still tearing around. She told hubby and me that she has dealt with all sorts of dogs before and this was the first time she had to carry her can of mace for protection before stepping out of her vehicle.
We filled out a complaint and the owner is going to be charged and slapped with a fine.
You want to live in harmony with your neighbours and avoid trouble but where do you draw the line? I shudder to think I was out raking leaves in my own yard earlier today and what if the dog had got loose while I was out there.
