The Animal Control department in this city is useless.
It has been four days since the attack and they STILL have not been able to contact the owners of those beasts to determine if they are up to date on their shots, nor have they collected the animals for quarantine.
I have just left ANOTHER message on their answering machine to find out what my options are at this point.
And, in what I can only describe as “what a small world”, I found out that one of the other manager’s in my department has a sister who lives on the street where I was attacked and they put me in touch with another neighbor on that street who is organizing information on the several attacks that have occurred in order to go to a city hearing to discuss these animals.
I have given her all of my information and she promises to keep me informed.
Meanwhile, I have been walking Teddyji closer to home, but, I am still constantly scanning all around me and paying attention to how Teddyji is behaving (as he KNEW the dogs were in the area long before we ever saw them! He was pulling on the leash like crazy that day trying to follow their scent!).
That’s all I have for now. I just want to thank everyone for their wonderful, supportive, comments on this blog and the emails that I have received. It’s truly comforting to know how many good people there are in the world and how this miracle called the World Wide Web has brought us all together!
