Well I made a fool of myself yesterday but I don't care. I told my next door neighbour she shouldn't have a dog if all she does is leave the dog in the backyard. The dog needs attention and walking. Couldn't believe she said that dogs don't need walking. I have three and don't walk them as much as I should but I try to as often as I can, but they come inside in the afternoon and sleep inside at night. The poor dog is lonely and sticks her muzzle under the fence for me to pat and for my dogs to play with her and even gets excited when I come home as I used to give her a bone occasionally. She had a short term companion for a while so I stopped the bone in case they fought but that dog went home yesterday and now she will be all alone. This girl is pregnant so you can imagine that once the child is mobile the dog will be dumped at the pound. People should think long and hard before they get that cute puppy.
