So more on the dogs next door...
They bark. A lot. (Or, rather, one of them barks.)
I actually feel bad for them. They're in their little deck all day; I never see anyone out there with them. I see them out there all the time, rain or shine, cold or hot. They really deserve better than they're getting.
I decided to call animal services yesterday using my unlocked phone (our county has anti-tethering laws, and the husky is chained up).
Basically, they told me off. They said that as long as the owner himself wasn't abusing them, there wasn't anything they could do.
I told them about the dogs fighting, about the husky bleeding, about how the husky was tied up and the pit bull wasn't. Animal Control told me that dogs fight - that's just what they do.
I was disappointed. Now what?
