Poof: Good grief, hope the computer gremlins have been exorcized.

Ugh, got up early because the sprinkler guys were suppose to be here between 8:30 and 1.
Call at 8:30. They need to finish a job from yesterday. No morning for me.

Beautiful day and I'm stuck all afternoon.
Or wait till next week.
Seed went down yesterday and I can't find the sprinklers in the garage.

So, I'm up.
Yes. Me. Up.

Maybe I'll do my afternoon stuff in the morning.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

The guy across the street...the old lady's son...has a dog.
When he moved in he had the sweetest dog. She was my dog friend.
He only walked her once a day and NEVER let her in the house. Even on the days were the weathermen would warn to take your outdoor pets in.
That dog died in the yard. He never even took her to the vet to be put down when she was old and sick.

Then he got a puppy. He told his mom and I we would not be allowed to "ruin" the puppy. No playing. No petting. I never got to know the new dog.

He wants to raise it to be his. It is a Belgium Shepard. Smaller than a German Shepard. He didn't socialize it to dogs or people.
He brings it to a dog gym for exercise and training. I weird place with people who think like him.
That is expensive, so he put a treadmill in the garage for the dog.

Every time he puts the dog on that treadmill, the dog lets out a scream and cry.

Just heard it. Looked out and I can hear the treadmill.

He went back into the house! He left the dog tied to a treadmill on fast speed. Alone. If the dog trips, she will be hurt.

Jackass.

At least this dog lives in the house.

That'd be enough to get me to call Animal Control.

ps. No really, that makes me want to cry at my desk just thinking about it.

I'm just hanging out, really.

You need to call the police or animal control. That's animal abuse.

Good morning. Absolutely agree, call the animal control people (keep it anonymous if you can as you do want to avoid any retribution)

I've always been told there's no such thing as a stupid question but I heard one today. My colo-rectal doctor asked me if I wanted to come back in six months or a year.

Can't use the dog. She doesn't like Rusty.

My next door neighbor will shoot him. He once said if he sees the old lady mow the son's lawn, he'll kill the son.

So did you call the ASPCA or is there some special Lon Guyand warp bubble that negates any actions of propriety?

From the trapped squirrel call, I know they don't come for days. How can I prove the guy leaves the dog on the treadmill by herself?

I'd like to think that they would at the very least investigate and if they can't catch it directly at least "put the scare" into the guy to hopefully knock that stuff off. Now if they refuse to at the very least make an inquiry without 'proof', that's probably a different issue all together.

You might not be the only person calling, you know. But you might be the one that tips them from 'not investigating' to looking into the situation.

plus - assuming you're right and the guy is doing it - if the guy thinks there's nothing wrong with doing it he might admit to doing it.

Hell, I got a call 10 days after reporting that there was a squirrel in a trap in a yard. It was the guy who could do something about it, except the trap was gone by then.
The guy was just a frustrated as I was.
There is no way I'm going into the yard of a Shepard that was trained to be a one man dog. So I'll never have proof.

He'll just say he stays with the dog. Lots of people put the dogs on treadmills.

I'm sure he told the breeder how he wanted to raise the puppy. They still sold it to him.
He tried to breed her and she wouldn't let the male dog near her. He told me there is a cage you can buy that would trap the female so the male can mount her.

Yeah, because this guy would take good care of puppies.

He never did it. that was over a year ago.

Damn lawn sprinkler guys never showed up to turn on the sprinkler system.
They called in the morning and said they wouldn't be here until the afternoon, would I like to change the appt.
I said, no, the seed is down. I need it turned on.
They took 2 phone #'s for me.
I called when I walked Rusty to make sure they weren't coming when I was gone.
They never called to say they just weren't going to make it.
They had to know that at some point in the afternoon.

I called them at 7pm and no answer.

Now I'll have to hand water for at least a week. Or go out and but new sprinklers to use for one week.

Don't know. If hubby watched them once , he could do it. But he is still working overtime and has no interest in figuring it out.
There is a control panel outside, underground with the pipes for each zone, plus a computerized control panel in the basement.
In the fall you need an air compressor to blow the water out of each zone.
I don't know what they do in the spring.


How hard is it to call and say, we can't make it. We warned you this morning.
Now I'll have to dig through the garage and see if I can find the sprinklers.

I'm mad.

In the spring, they just turn the water on and check for leaks. We had to do the same thing in Washington. We don't have to do that here as it rarely gets cold enough to freeze the pipes that far down in the ground.

if it is like our system, you just have to program the panel to tell it when to turn stuff on and off. like an alarm clock. you can do eeet!

Turn on the control center and open the maual shut off valves for each zone I would guess.
