Mad As A Hornet
What good is a city ordinance if they don't inforce it? Coming from the ranch early this morning when we got to our neighborhood who should we meet prancing down the street with not one, not two, but three puppies trailing behind? One of the big dogs that attacked Susie yesterday. John called the city. Oh they were familiar with his name and they remembered. I sat on the porch and waited. The dog catcher never came. I think he picked up the male dog yesterday because it was no where in sight. The female was just as vicious. Susie is still improving. She is eating her soft food and can get up and down out of the shef but doen't come out of the shed. We have her because someone didn't take responsibility for their cats years ago. A mama cat left a litter in the carport and never came back for them. The three males dissappeared one by one so I took Susie and had her spayed and she has been with us ever since. Taking her to be spayed was no easy feat as she was wild and afraid of her shadow. She has remained on the wild side. Even I can not pick her up. If everything is very quiet and calm she will get in my lap when I am sitting on the porch. Any sudden noise or movement unsettles her. She would never have anything to do with anyone other then us but just recently my daughter and John's daughter both told me they petted her on the porch. This episode will set her back.
