You are required to report any and all dog bites here. Teddy was playing with me and one of his canines scraped my skin and broke it. Had to bring his dog license down to the police station along with the vets report of what shots Teddy had for the year and file a report. Even though Teddy is a family dog, and he just scraped my skin, it still is required to be reported. And you can't get a dog license in Boston, unless the animal has had his rabies and other required shots. And you have to get a new license each year along with the new report from the vet. A great money maker for the city.

We're sort of in the Wild West here. Out in the country. A friend's house across the highway caught on fire, and the city fire dept. let it burn, as they didn't pay taxes for the fire dept.

I'll let DH kick his butt. If that doesn't work, then I'll step in.

Are they covered by a volunteer fire department?

We're covered by a little town's volunteer fire dept., about 8 miles away.

Sigh, you would think the fire departments would have some kind of arrangement. What happens when another town has a huge fire and asks for help? Do they refuse to go?

They go. We don't pay town taxes since we don't live in town. We pay taxes in the little town. I just found it cruel that the town fire department let their house burn down.

It is mean. So, could it happen to you if your house caught fire?

Probably. We pay school and other taxes, but they get strange around here.

I say get Black Russian terrier or some other wishes dog like that, so he will snap that Weimaraner dog in a half. That will teach them a lesson.

Dawg, I think both you and DH should carry a can of pepper spray when you walk "our" Beagle. That should settle it, if there's no law out there!
When DH talks with him again he can be warned it will be used.
