PagesDear AbbyDogs Who Bite as Well as Bark Don't Belong in Any Backyard DHAR ARRY Here in C alifornia we are currently experiencing a hysteria about pit bulldog attacks on children and adults Six years ago, when my son was IO years old, he was attacked in front of our house by a dog that was half collie and half German shep herd Mn son did nothing to provoke the dog I know, I was there The boy suffered wounds on his face that required HO stitches The owners of the dog refused to pay tin medical bills because that would have admitted wrongdoing We sued these people who. by the was were friends of ours My son received $2fi,<MM> compensation, but in retro spent it was not enough Due to the scars on his face, our son has been in psychological counseling tw ice to help hun adjust to the social problems those scars left ,\bh\ please tell your readers that it i*. against the law to keep a vicious animal, even if it is tied up in their backyard It a child climbs over a fence to retrieve a baseball and is attacked by a dog, th*- owner is liable Fhose “Reware «>t I log signs mean nothing V cording to the law the owner is liable for any injuries incurred NU son is now lo and h* «.

Here it is: With DHAR ABRY This is for all newspaper carriers, mail carriers and delivery people When you see a dog barking and growling in front of someone’s house, turn right around and forget that bouse Today a delivery boy tried to get up to our front door when he was confronted by our dog on a chain, growling and snapping frantically The delivery boy didn t take the hint, instead he kept advancing, trying to get around the dog and up to our front door Had our dog been able to get to this boy, he could have done him serious damage Abby. Km really worried. I have heard that according to law, every dog is entitled to one bite hut if he bites twice he has to Im- put to sleep Is that true? LOVES MY DOG DEAR LOV KS: "Laws’’ concerning dogs differ, depending on where on** lives. However, it would seem apparent that a harking, growling dog on a chain is doing w hat he has been trained to do — protect his domain — and anyone who deliberately attempts to invade his territory is asking for trouble. Mail carriers, newspaper carriers and delivery people are usually instructed to “forget” th** house that's being protected by man’s best friend. DEAR ARRY Recently my father passed away. Without going into any of the unpleasant details, my father was a cruel and selfish man who abused his family in every way possible My mother left him several times because of his abusive behav ior Now that he is dead, Mother speaks lovingly of hun. and with much remorse I can only bite my tongue and listen but I t annot bear to hear her constantly building him up as a “saint Next month, my husband and I are taking Mother on a va anon trip to Europe We planned this trip long before my father s death I fear that Mother will continue to speak in glowing terms of that terrible man and I will lose control and spoil a lovely vacation trip How can I prevent this THE TONG!
