For the past couple of days, I kept getting messages from various "animal loving" neighbors saying that they had being seeing two stray dogs on our lonely dirt road. So of course my first question was always the same to each neighbor..."why the hell are you calling me? You claim to be a dog lover, why didn't you take them into your home? Geezus, its been 110 degrees here. You couldn't give them water??!!" I was furious. So today our volunteer dog walkers spotted the dogs down the road and we went and picked them up. Well furious didn't describe what we saw. One of the dogs, an old female Pit Bull, had been attacked by a coyote, her face swollen, puncture wounds under her neck and ear. I just shook my head. I live in a town that claims to be "upper class, educated, country living, animal friendly" What a joke. My entire neighborhood turned their backs on these dogs, chased them out of their yards and left them to die. My neighbors consist of: a former LAPD officer, a horse trainer and a dog groomer. Unreal, eh? So they are safe now and resting comfortably and will be added to our pack of beasts looking for someone who will love them as much as we do already.
