Thanks for all the support but....

Well, that didn't last! approximately 50 hours of no dogs loose. 6:10 PM today that was gone. Dog charged the fence barking. Came across the road, up to my fence running, barking etc. Sigh. Call in. Citation will be done Thursday early. (Deputy on night duty tonight & busy - then off.) I'm hoping that the fine will be reinstated without me having to go to court.

And I didn't have my camera. As I left the house I had thought how nice it was not to have to take it with me..............

I was afraid that he wasn't going to take it seriously. I am sure his male ego thought he got one over on you.

Yeah, well, again last night which the dogs were called back accompanied with cursing them and cursing me. (judge will be so happy to hear) Then this morning three dogs charge the fence. Photographed last night and this morning. Getting ready to walk again...

I suspect that once he blew it, he knew it was over in that the fine would be reimposed. I wonder if he has considered that the judge may increase the fine for subsequent violations?

I really dislike this. I mean California is burning, some fool killed a large number of people, there are storms in the SE and I have to worry about the joker across the street...

Ironically, we do not have room in our jail (new one is being built having gotten an overwhelming approval of a bond measure) for him or I'm sure he would be there for lack of paying fines already.

I know just what you mean about trying to keep things in proportion-but this is a legitimate quality of life issue.

Keep us posted,

Sheriff's deputies (2!) came out this morning, took the report and attempted to serve the citation. Had a discussion regarding what the fine was in opposition to just paying the citation -- much more if you contest it. Especially if you don't have any basis for contesting it. So watch that. The guy escalated the threats yesterday morning so I am going to file a restraining order on him. That means he cannot come within 150 feet of me. If I walk the road, he needs to move to the back of his property. He cannot talk to me (and that includes he cannot scream profanities at me.) So I am anxious to get that in place. If I weren't headed down the hill to practice in the first snow of the season, I would have done it by now.

Wow, Middle, this is like a nightmare. So sorry to read you are going through this. You are right, with all the problems going on around us nationwide, who needs a lunatic like this around the corner. Gheez.

Here's the latest - got the restraining order today. The judge was not happy to be dealing with the boy again so soon. Got it so he has to use a different street to access his property - he can't drive along the one that fronts my place but needs to use the other one. My neighbors owe me for that one.

It hasn't been served yet - he will get the citation on his dogs and the restraining order served at the same time. Any noise from him & he goes to jail. That ought to cool him off for a bit.

Middle, be careful. I'm somewhat concerned for the safety of you and your dogs.

I admire how you have taken care of all that has been going on.

Thanks for the kudus.

Got a call from the deputy. (Hey this guy is good) Neighbor (40 yo) has been served - with citation for dogs and restraining order - of course he is not exactly happy but, ya know, his actions have not made me happy. All the authorities in the county (OK it's a big county with a small population) know this family and especially this one. The recent thing is that his 70 yo mother (who is also my neighbor) got arrested for robbery and spent a couple of weeks in lock up.

My thoughts are: If you let jerks intimidate you, they will continue to intimidate you and others. Not good. (I think that is part of what has happened with my neighbor) My mother's "Ignore them and they will go away" is not an effective strategy. On top of that, it had to be done because a neighbor routinely screaming curses at me is not acceptable. And stress producing. So it had to stop. This is the vehicle I have to shut it down. I am happy to have it although frustrated to learn, despite what I was told, that I could have shut it down months ago.

I think I am OK because he cannot near my property or me without going to jail for it - and they will take him in. He might ignore fines but the thoughts are he does not want to go back to jail.
