Yesterday, I was walking Beethoven (I walk them all seperately, because I can't control all three together), and I went to the end of the road with him. Well, there is a house at the end of my road, and the owners of the house have two chi X's. They NEVER close their gate, and every time I'm down there, the chi's are outside. They are generally pretty good about staying in their yard. Anyway, I walk down there with Beethoven, and the little girl chi starts barking (she's about as big as Thoven's head, if that helps you to picture this situation better) and running towards us. I start to walk Beethoven back to my own house, because, I was afraid she'd come upto him, and he'd hurt her. Beethoven acted surprisingly well, for a dog who I thought was dog aggressive. All he did was bark; he didn't try to drag me toward this little phsyco chi, or anything. We walk back down the road, and I turn around, and the little girl chi is out in the road. Being who I am , I put Thoven back in the house, and walk down the road again, to try and get her back in her own yard. She starts growling at me like she's a Rottweiler...OMG The little boy chi, who is friendly, was following her around, while she growled at me LOL It was actually very funny to watch. I did get her to go back inside the yard, and I didn't see her again, so I'm assuming she stayed. I'm afraid to walk down there, now, because I don't want her to bite my dogs, and I don't them to hurt her, either. I have actually chased the little boy chi down the road, in my PJ's, in the dark because he got out, and I was worried that he'd get hit. I really wish those people would either close their gate, or get rid of those dogs. I could've called Animal Control, I suppose, but the little chi probably would've ended up being PTS, because she was so unfriendly. These people had a chow chow, when I moved here, and I was always so tempted to "rescue" him....he was matted, and left outside all the time (and, where I live, it's 80 - 90 degrees daily). They just aren't cut out to be dog owners. And, I don't think they speak english, so I can't even talk to them. I was down there with Shelby, while the dog's owners were outside with them, and the woman was yelling in spanish at one of them. When I turned around, I saw the little girl chi slinking off, looking like she was afraid of being hit or something.... Anyways, sorry for the rant...It just bugs me that people can be so irresponsible with their pets.
