Just a little neighbor dog update. When I came home from work yesterday there was no doggie around. Great, I thought, maybe talking to the neighbors worked and they are keeping him inside now. Or at least they are bringing him in before I get home. Well, this morning, 7:15 am, I hear the familiar jingle of his dog tags. I look out and see both the pit bull and his fellow house-mate, a small brown dog who is usually too shy to come over. I stayed very quiet in my RV and they went away after peeing in front of the door to my truck. Thanks dogs...good morning to you too.
This evening I watered my plants right when I got home so that (hopefully) the dog wouldn't know I was home yet. Once again I hoped that his owners had taken him inside since it was dark outside but 20 minutes later he was at my door. I don't like having to hide from the neighbor's dog but I don't have my stick ready yet (not a beating stick...more of a here, chew-on-this-instead-of-my-arm sort of stick and a stick to give me more confidence around a pit bull). I'll need to be prepared this weekend. Watch out doggie, I am not going to hide inside. The weather will be great and I have stuff to get done. He can hang around if he wants but there will be NO jumping and NO biting! My stick, water gun and pepper spray will make sure of that.
