don't know if anyone is still interested in this story, but i will post it in case your curious. Today the landlord came over and i heard mary growl a little..i had let them out on the porch because i heard onyx barking there for i knew she was chained. Mary didn't mean anything about it..it is just her way of saying someone is coming and she doesn't recognize them yet. I put her so she wouldn't follow us to the water meter hole in the ground because my meter is not in my yard. Victor in the meantime is on his lion rug..on a 12 ft leash tied to the porch post. All of a sudden her comes Onyx full hackels and heading for Victor like a freight train. He is no fool, but has figured out he is in deep dodo being tied he cant run away from her, and he is trying to scale the house to get away. Onyx is easily twice his size in weight. I do not think of him as a coward, but i think he is instead very very smart. I realized there is no way i am going to get to the front door to get him into safety..so i am running with my glass of ice tea in my hnd..i am shouting in my meanest voice NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO and then i threw my ice tea in her face..just inches from my Victor who is now so tangled up in pots and plants that he can't move..a sitting duck. Amazingly the NO's and the tea worked..she swerved off behind the house..i shouted IN THE CAR..and she made a bee line for it. IN the meantime woman of the house is all most to my house in the car..so she saw the whole thing..man of the house has toddlers corraled in the front yard of his house. I took Onyx home. He asked me if i thought the invisible fence would hold a 4 year old tuff woman like Onyx, i said i don't know that is why i brought u information with all the pros AND cons. I said a hot wire will tho. I explained about how my friend Kelly put up a small fenced yard behind her house and ran a hot wire around the top. He said his father has a box he can use. That was too close..and my landlord saw it as well...remember that Onyx picked his sheltie up and shook her like a ragdoll..punctures, bleeding and a vet trip. When he turned them in they turned him in saying that he let his dog run all over the neighborhood which is an out and out lie. His dog is like Mary and never but never leaves his property. She follows him everywhere he goes. I have a left eye headache now. My nerves are shook, i am angry, I will take her myself and have her put to sleep if she bites my dogs again. I won't send her to the pound..that isn't right, fear and gas barrel or how ever they do it, she doen'st deserve that. Worst part is give me Onyx (if i didn't have Vic and Mary) and i could turn it all around. i hate these people..i try so hard not to hate but my god how much am i suppose to put up with. I do not want to be responsible for killing Onyx. This weekend there better be a wire enclosure and a hot wire..and there simply can't be anymore of this!
