Well I have to say I am very impressed with our County's Animal Control. Yesterday an officer showed up at my house to check on Oscar and to see the burn wounds I have on my hand to confirm that I did in fact have open wounds that provided a potential point of entry for rabies. She was on her way to the other dog's house to take the dog and do a 10 day rabies quaratine, as well as possibly cite the owners once she saw the fence. I was impressed with the follow through! Someone is supposed to call me tomorrow with details about whether or not the owner could provide rabies certificates. I'm scared of retaliation, so hopefully I can also find out how the owners reacted when Animal Control showed up. For a while we're going to walk on trails and not the road. I don't want these people to see us and possible do something to us if they're mad.
On a "golden" note, when we were on the porch talking to the officer, Oscar sat calmy and after a few minutes, offered the officer his paw. He loooves to shake hands. It was really sweet and I think it really sent the message home that Oscar is not an aggressive dog and was an innocent victim!
