I made a post not to long ago about my neighbors dog and hows its always on my lawn and everyone elses. so the other day i went to the store and when i came back home i walked im my backyard and my neighbors dog is on my deck (we had just bbq earlier). and my neighbors dog is lickin my deck near where the grill is. so i run up behind him and yell WHAT THE H3LL U DOIN IN MY BACKYARD the dog turns around and tries to run and i was goin pick him up and hold him hostage lol. the dog must of know what i was goin do and just starts screamin like i kicked him or something. it was the 1st time ever in my life i heard a dog scream for help and not even get touched. so what i wanna know is was i wrong for almost givin my neighbor dog a heart attack????

You are not wrong for wanting the dog out of your yard. It sounds to me like the dog may not be treated so well at his house. If it is a small dog I could see it getting scared, but from experience most dogs become aggressive if they feel threatend. I have an 8 year old Chihuahua, even if he knows he is wrong for doing something, If you go after him he tries to bite your leg off. I would discuss this with the neighbor. They need to keep it on a leash if it won't stay in thier yard!

Nah, by scaring the bajeebus out of the dog, it should discourage him from going back to your house! Just wondering why the owners haven't made a harder effort to keep him in their yard? I haven't read your other post but i have had a problem like this before, you need to make it clear to the owners that they have to make sure their dog stays in their yard - if he gets hit by a car then it's no-ones fault but their own - or, you could always do fencing around your place so he cant get in but then that's just a waste of money you don't need to spend. Have a chat with them & if they do nothing, try calling the RSPCA or whatever it's called where you are & let them know you have a neighbour who isn't responsible for the safety of his own dog - that might make your neighbours pay a bit of attention!

LOL, this is funny, maybe he will avoid your yard from now on. The stupid mutt deserved it. Reminds me of the time when my son age 17 was driving our car. This one house we always had to stop and then turn to go home and the dog living at the house on the corner of the stop sign would always come roaring out at our car and give chase. Well this happened for weeks and then my son one day after turning the corner and getting on a straight stetch with the dog snarling after us. Stopped the car and jumped out and ran snarling and growling and stomping his feet after the dog. I never laughed so hard, The dog stopped mid snarl. Eyes bugged out and turned with tail tucked between its legs back to its house. After that it never chased our car again.

lol this is too funny. i would have done something similar, i actually would have run up to the dog and pretended i was going to beat it while yelling at it. no you weren't wrong, the people really need to keep their dog on a leash...i have a similar neighbors dog which seems to think my front lawn is it's bathroom and it irritates me to no end that they let it just poop in my yard when i have a toddler running around and don't have a dog myself cause i don't want to deal with dog poop. i've been just too chicken to ask them to clean up after their own dog so i guess it's my own fault. sorry to hijack your discussion. you made me laugh.

Yes, you were wrong for giving your neighbor's dog a heat attack. hehehehehe lol. Just joking. Of course i would also feel the same way and would chase the dog but I cant kick him coz I love dogs. I even love the ugly nameless dog that our laldn lord owns, I love to call him dogie and he comes around waggling his tail with happiness.

NO WAY!!! I would have done the same thing. Also you need to talk to these people about there dog. If they wont listen call the humaine society or animal control. The people can get in big trouble for letting there dog run free.

That's a funny story! The dog probably wanted some of the BBQ drippings. Those neighbors might get mad at your *LOL* dog abuse. Maybe you can get a restraining order?
