At 8:30 this morning someone was banging at our front door, figured it was JW's.
There stood a large man with a clip board and I thought to myself, are they still delivering the tracts? I opened the door ready to give him hell. Low and behold its a county employee telling me a neighbor reported that one of my dogs was roaming loose yesterday.
My dogs have never been loose, don't sit outside barking and I keep the back yard as clean as possible so no odors are wafting about for my neighbors. We walk our dogs at night because they are atttacked by all the "loose dogs in the neighborhood."
I asked the guy, did they have a description?...no, .....dog collar?....don't know.....He finally admitted after sitting in my living room for 20 minutes it probably wasn't my dog but they were definate about the address.
....since he was here he needed to see rabies tags, which I had. He then wanted county licesnes for these dogs. Since I had just recently adopted them and the county wanted rabies documents in my name, I couldn't get the tags. Apparently HIPPA regulations now apply to animals because after calling the vets, none will release info on these dogs. I had the certificates...just not in my name. NOT GOOD ENOUGH>
So I get to spend hundreds of dollars for vaccinations that are already current just to get a piece of paper with my name on it.....for a $6.00 tag. If I don't do this within 10 days its a $50.00 fine per dog per week.
Thank you neighbors, I think I might let all the crap pile up in the back yard for your enjoyment.
