So I heard the most disturbing story today while I was out walking with Laurel. We had stopped by our neighbor dog’s house en route to the horse stables, and the man who lives there told us that his home had been struck by vandals! Apparently, a group of individuals threw rocks at both his and his daughter-in-law’s cars, damaging them both. They also smashed their Halloween pumpkins and smeared them all over!
His neighbor across the street had his pool cover ripped open, all his patio furniture thrown into the pool, and – worst of all – the hose turned on and put in their window-wells. These are relatively new people to the neighborhood. What a terrible welcome!
Allegedly, these same vandals also struck the nearby elementary school, throwing the trash bins through the windows of the Science Lab and strewing the walkway with trash and fecal matter. Hopefully, they have been caught on camera.
Mom is REALLY grateful that I’ve gotten so “barky” lately, what with me taking my Homeland Security job so seriously. These vandalism incidents happened a block away from our house! Buddy2Blogger (Sherlockian’s Blog) reminded us today to keep pets indoors on Halloween, as they are targets for tricksters. With the “pranking” already starting in my ‘hood, this is sound advice!I’m on window patrol, watching and listening. Homeland Security is my top priority! Woof!!! (Grrrrrrrowl!)Love, Maggie
