I just got a message from my daughter that animal control just came and took my 3 dogs. And I'm stuck here in Iraq and can't do a thing about it. Heres what happened. My nieghbor keeps there garbage can on the edge of my property. I never said anything because it was'nt causing any harm. Once in awhile my dog gets off the leash and runs around the yard playin with his bowl etc. She brings her garbage out, he see's her and runs toward her (in my yard) but stops and only barks at her. She calls the police and they show up and go in my yard and the dog charges them and stops about 2 ft away from them and barks and growls or so they said, because if I have a dog charging me I aint gonna let it get 2 ft away before I put a bullet in it especially the size of that dog They did'nt even draw there weapons. So they give my wife a ticket and tell her if the dog gets off again they will take the dog (singular) So this time my little dog that don't stand but maybe a ft and a half gets off the leash and runs around a bit. The police and animal control show up and take all the dogs siting they're vicous when they never bit anyone or fought with any animals ever. Now normally I would be home to handle such affairs but unfortunatly I'm stuck in the god forsaken hell hole known as Iraq and My wife is home 7 months pregnant working full time and tending to my other 3 children. You know there used to be a certain compassion and understanding in the community when it came to deployed soldiers and there spouses. But it seems like now no one really gives a hoot. What kind of communist state have we become when no one cares about the possible undo mental stress put on our families and the soldiers in harms way!
