My neighbors are a lot better at keeping their dogs from getting out of the yard than they use to be. A few months ago I was rescuing both of their dogs at least two or three times a day. I think by going to their door each time their dogs got out and telling them that without a doubt their dogs will get ran over and killed that I finally talked some sense into them. But today the mom sent the daughter to get something out of the car and she left the gate open. I always have bird seed and dog and cat food and ice water in the driveway every day and night for any animal that is hungry that is running loose. Well, I was watching the Poodle & Chihuahua eating food for over ten minutes in my driveway. I thought the mom and dad were probably out front talking. But after so long I went to check and the gate was wide open and nobody was around. So I am so glad I got them back home before they got ran over or wondered off and got lost. I rescue my neighbors big dog Nena so often and hook her up on a cable until somebody comes to get her. That I don't even consider it rescues anymore although it is. The family refuses to fix the fence in the yard so she can't get out. The owner is a Alcoholic and does not seem to be very concerned about Nenas welfare. At least all the hours she is with me she is safe and fed good. I get the Lab from the yard across from me and keep him from 11:30 - 7 p.m. every day to get him out of the heat. It was a battle getting to where the family would just let me care for the Lab without giving me a hard time. But, no one ever said living a life as a rescuer would always be easy but it is so rewarding.
