Petty Vents

The baseball bat will be be accompanying me. I also wear some good sturdy boots, and am not afraid to use them. Beagle is a very peaceful dog. If the other dog ambushes her, weimeraner will have the heck kicked out of her. I am concerned, as she bit the neighbor's butt, and tried to attack another friend. DH talked to the owner after the first time his dog attacked Beagle, but he's become lax again.

It's very strange to me, usually weimeraners are very nice dogs. One of Beagle's best friends is a weimeraner. She's known him since he was a puppy.

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.
Addie...you actually went through all that for a minor scratch from a family pet? Lordy....if we went to the police station here and reported a small scratch from my kitty or my daughter's inoculated playful dogs, we'd be in there every other day and laughed out of the place.
And I'm pretty sure it's not just Boston that requires shots to license a pet.

I'd buy a taser. You can keep the other dog off your beagle, but if he goes for you, that's a whole 'nother situation.

I don't know why people won't leash their dogs. I used to trot my Dobie alongside my bike (on leash) because he needed more exercise than I could give him jogging. I was always amazed at the number of dogs loose in their front yards that used to run out in the street after him. Usually with their owners right there.

My dog wasn't aggressive, but he'd surely stand up for himself, so I'd drop the bike and walk him toward the chasing dog. Chasing Dog would slide to a stop, turn tail and run back to its owner and when the owner saw his dog almost got himself into a fight he couldn't win, there'd be apologies and promises of keeping the dog on a leash in the future.

We must have made an impression. No dog ever chased us twice and my dog never even got near to a chaser.

Oh, and just to stay on topic, my petty vent is wondering how it is I love chocolate and everything that causes me to gain weight, and why couldn't I be born loving to eat broccoli instead.

Oh gosh Dawg...I sure hope this situation is resolved soon. I know how you love to walk Beagle, and you should be able to do that without being in fear for anyone's safety.

Maybe if DH tells the neighbor they would rather leash their dog rather than hope your DH restrained you it might make an impression? Warn the guy you might go all vigilante on him and his dog. Of course the neighbor doesn't need to know you're really as gentle as Beagle, right?

Kinda makes you wonder how that dog is treated by his master, eh?

I know they've been required in suburban Cleveland since the late 1950s. My parents always had a dog, and I can still see the little tag dangling from our dog's collar verifying her vaccination each year. Heard it, too, since it would jingle up against the bone-shaped one with all the owner information.

There are no bad dogs, just bad owners. DH plans to take care of this. If he doesn't, I will. (Puts on boxing gloves).

Strangely, this is the sweetest dog inside. However, mess with the Beagle, you get the horns.

I've discovered after recently trying, that if you want to print your own shipping label using "Flat rate" shipping prices, your weight limit with UPS and USPS and Paypal is 13 ounces max. Otherwise you have to use USPS Priority or UPS's and Paypal's more expensive shipping options. After much searching and being frustrated that eBay let's you choose the cheaper "First Class Standard" shipping rate for an item you've auctioned, no matter the weight, I found that if you are an eBay member, and you've sold an item, and if you can bring up that item, there's an option to "Ship Additional Items" and that brings you to eBay's shipping label page for both USP and USPS to print "Flat Rate" shipping labels, with no weight limit, even tho you auctioned off that item months ago. Jeesh! Finally! This means I can print UPS labels here at home, arrange a pickup online for free by UPS here at my place, OR...print a USPS label and set it out at my mail kiosk area for the mailman to pick up. I don't have to drive to the post office.

I even tried Stamps.com to accomplish all this, but they charge $15 a month for their premium label shipping service.
Why these other sites limit the weight if you want to ship low cost First Class and print labels at home, I don't know.

Yeah. He broke the top layer of skin with his canine tooth. It was my own fault. And I am sure a lot of cities and towns require shots to license their pet.

Waiting to hear from the mechanics on how bad the damage was done to my car.

My son was driving it when the alternator went on it. He was able to get it off the road out of traffic before he caused a collision on the freeway in the pouring rain.

He called AAA and asked for a flatbed truck to tow the car. Because of the make and model a dolley pulled from the front wouldn't do.

They sent out a tow tuck and the guy hooked it up in the front. Causing an air carriage (?) something under my car serious damage. It's just hanging by a thread. Damage to the back was also seen.
He had the audacity to say "That's normal"

You just trashed my car and that's normal? What an idiot!

Were hoping he didn't damage the transmission. I'll be pissed!
If that's the case somebody's buying me a new one, and it won't be on our dime either.

My sons with the mechanic who always works on my car. He knows what's normal and what's not.Pics are being taken in the daylight. They could only see the damage in the dark last night.

The complaint has been filed.
