Am I just mean or what?

I live in the country (rural area), there are no leash laws, no tether laws either. The road I live on is a private road with about 9 houses on it. We have 3 signs posted on our road.... NO SOLICITORS (it's a decision all the neighbors came to unanimously, so no problems there. Most of us have dogs, I have one, particularly, who does not like strangers. Lately we've had an insurance salesman stopping by our street once a week for about a month now, leaving his business card on everyone door. Four of us have called him and told him we're not interested and this is private and posted road. He came back this evening and my dog chased him halfway back down the road. Normally I would stop her, but this dude is really pushy so I let him get the full affect. Is that mean of me?

  • Maybe not mean, I'm sure you got your point across but be careful people will sue for stuff like that now a days. Especially if your dog caught him and chewed him up a little.

  • Yes that is mean! Instead of being mean and hiding behind your dog you should have told the guy personally to stop putting business cards on your door. Coward!!!

  • Mean, maybe. Wrong? Not entirely...could have very ended badly (for ALL parties) if your dog had caught him, though.

  • Anon she said that they DID call him and tell him to stop.
    No not mean but I would be careful, he could call animal control on you and claim your dog is an attack dog that chased him down the road.

  • There is no leash law, what is animal control going to do? If there are no trespassing signs up, no beware of dogs signs up (there should be), then they should be fine. They did inform him to stay away. I think it's funny, and would be pretty funny to watch. So, I guess I'm mean, too.

  • No leash laws or not, if a dog is " vicious" then they can do something. All it takes is one jerk off making a report.
