My neighbor across the street has one of those nasty little hairy white yappy dogs that he doesn't control. They had it out in their front yard (no leash, no fence) and it just came running across the street up into my driveway, barking its head off. When I held out the back of my hand for it to sniff, the damn thing BIT me! Then it started attacking the legs of my pants. The neighbor just stands there waving her hands in the air, saying "Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!"
I think it's time to buy a case of gum with xylitol and start dropping it in their yard. Ought to be really effective if I can find some that's bacon flavored. Feeling plenty cranky right now. Maybe Son can give me some animal control pointers.
