Cute pictures! What was the neighbor issue? Did they have an issue with Zoe?

And of course we have to throw Dexter in the mix. I crack up so hard when the little fella calls Dexter through the window. He even calls Phoebe....but Phoebe was a no show.

oh yeah AG......I had major major issues with my neighbour. Let me see if I can find the old thread and post a link.

She gave me a list of dogs she didn't like, and asked if Zoe was a Husky because of her curled tail. I said no but she is part Chow.....well Chows were on her list.....and then the fun began.:wall:

Aww, that last pic is a keeper!! You need to blow it up and give it to the mom as a keepsake. It's adorable.:cloud9:
Is that the mom in the first pic? Nice to see the smile. :thumbs up Great work!!

Yep, that's the mom. She even stops to come and pet Zoe whenever she is outside.:thumbs up Zoe is all bum wiggles when she sees her now.

The mom even picked up on when Zoe does her "alert" bark that something is nearby. They were playing on the little fella's new swing set way out back , and Zoe was in her yard watching......and she saw/smelled something, and jumped up and did her bark. She ran as far to the back of the yard as her line allows and just barked and barked with her back protecting the passage to the next yard. The mom payed attention, and the next thing is two loose dogs come barreling through the backyard......Zoe went nuts.....you don't mess with her peoples. Then she had to give kisses and sniffs to make sure everyone was all right.

Oh and I forgot to add, Zoe did all the hard work. It's those big brown eyes of hers I tell you. There is no denying them anything.

Wow, what a positive outcome, dch!!!!!

I think it is great that a little boy gets to enjoy the love of a dog, even if it is only a part time dog :lovestruck: :cloud9:

OMG DCH, you have the patience of a saint. If I had a neighbor who came up to me like that, I'd look at the list, then at them and say, "If you have a problem with the dog, then I suggest you put up a fence. Other than that, watch your kids and keep off my side of the yard. I'm not going to chain my dog up, or keep him in the house because you just moved in."

Oy! Seriously, the nerve of that woman.
