Fred just had his first ever bad dog experience a Springer, intacts male, came over and just got overly assertive. Growling then went for him I had Fred on lead of course. The Springer kept coming, owner was trying to get it away unsuccessfully, and Fred snapped at it.

She eventually got it.... I've never seen Fred get annoyed EVER. I dont blame him, but hope he doesn't think all make dogs will be like that.

Poor boy. I knew it would happen eventually, happy it wasn't serious, but hoped we would avoid any bad experiences!! Don't want him to be reactive, I want him to love other dogs.

He said "oh I didn't even see that, well, will the homeowners be home soon?"

"You need to GO," I repeated, and slammed the door in his face as he continued trying to protest.

So I called ADT to complain.
They told me they don't send people door-to-door.

So I called the cops. He wasn't wearing anything that said ADT (in fact I thought he was from FedEx because he was wearing all brown, that's the only reason I opened the door), he didn't have an ADT truck or anything, so. NOPE.


Came back to work to an e-mail letting me know I'm basically going to be on the phone for the rest of the afternoon. Sigh.
Uh.

You know he is feeling you out to see if you have an alarm system installed? :/ I'd be very worried...

That would be why I called the cops.

Good thing, too. Make sure all your windows and doors are locked when you leave, and dogs are crated? that'd geek me out SO much.

My dad was home when I left to go back to work. I told him what was going on so he knew. We never leave anything unlocked even when we're home, and the dogs are all crated. I do kind of wish I had told him "We have a no soliciting sign and also my dogs want to eat you." He could hear them all barking though.

The cops haven't called me which doesn't surprise me. They were supposed to call me and talk to me about the dog I saw get hit, and they never called me about that either. So of course I have no idea if they drove around the neighbourhood and found the guy or not.

omg get them all



It's so gross out, all I want to do is sleep. But thanks to puppy actually happening, I have to work. *lesigh*.
Also I feel my 'must have a girl' attitude caving, at this point I just want a darn puppy, lol.

Ha I wish! It's not likely I'll have the same options when I'm actually ready for a pup. Poo. But I know it's not the right choice right now.
