We have some deadbeat neighbors -- druggies who live off of the system and are proud of it --- what is worse is that they teach their kids the same way.....
They have 4 kids, but the one I have been having the problem with is the 8 year old boy........ he is constantly coming over to my house, he is rude and annoying and I cannot trust him at all ( especially around my 3 year old twins) ...... I have told him that I dont think it is a good idea for him to come over anymore because he doesnt listen ( he has walked right into my house and yard without asking ) .......
well the other day I was out in my yard..... i hear my little dog barking from inside and go in to see what he is barking out ( he never barks) .......
There stand the boy holding his hand, whinning and crying saying the dog bit him.......... I look at the mark and it was barely anything ( even for a small child) ..... I washed it off, put some neosporin (sp) and a bandaid on it and told him not to come into my house again, and that it was his own fault.
Tonight I get a phone call from a lawyer saying they want payment or I will be taken to court....
They also said that they were in beliefe that I was babysitting the boy at the time and I failed to control my dog .... AND they want my dog put to sleep !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That dog is my 3rd baby and has never, NEVER bit anyone else.....
The boy basically broke into my house, after he had be warned before...... how is that my fault ?
