Default neighbor came over today

Well today the neighbor came over to work on his fence. I feel much better about him and the hole situation. He thought I was making excuses for how Princess had broke the boards. I had told him his fence is warped, the boards are twisted and cracking and if she jumps in a weak area the boards will or can break. Where his dog jumps agaisnt the fence too, the difference is his dog is light as a feather.
Anyway, he came into my side of the yard, he seen for himself just how warped the fence is. He said he didnt realize it was so bad, he hadnt noticed it from his side. So he said he is going to push it back up, put in more bracing so it'll not fall over (looks like if you blew on the fence it'd fall over). So he isnt upset at Princess or us anymore since he was able to see for himself it wasnt something she had set out to do, it was just she took advantage of the situation!
And I will admitt, he's not as bad as I thought he was. He was very nice.

That's good . You never know about people....they may just be a little rough around the edges, and inside there's something really nice.

Good for you. Its horrible having your neighbors hate you. The situation between mine have gotten to the point where we cant fix our problems. We're pretty much just waiting until the other takes the first swing before it turns out into an all out brawl. Trust me, you don't want to be me in that predicament.

Glad to hear he came over the fix the fence. Sometimes it just takes a little communication for everyone to see what the problem is (fixing the fence) instead of going off the handle and just arguing over something. Maybe at the same time, you now have made a new friend.

Sounds like the best possible ending to a tricky situation
