i am really sorry BUT...what will it take to get this SAFETY point across???
Carol · Nov. 18, 2012
i left here at 845 to pick up feed for the pigs and already folks were arriving. by the time brenda got here at 9 am...the house dogs were hysterical...they had 15 minutes to wind themselves up hearing the driveway alarm before someone came into the house. bo and odie were going at it thru the wire door...brenda had to use a broom to break up the fence fight. there really are not too many other ways i can say this...the animals are being put at serious risk for harm by folks not respecting the on site 9 am start time.
i work really hard to leave the dogs safe, calm and settled before i leave here each day. i would appreciate if other folks were on my same number one priority of keeping the dogs safe and not unduly stressed page.
if it happens again, i will invest the money to put a locking gate at the end of the driveway..and then everyone will have to patiently wait til the person assigned to having the key arrives.
i am not goofing around with this...i get pretty serious when the dogs are upset for no reason except folks thinking the rules are for everyone else. the rules are here for ALL of us to protect all of the animals here, including the pain in the ass and prone to over reaction dogs.
it will be too late to wish you had arrived a few minutes later after one of the dogs gets hurt.
everyone knows the start time if they volunteer here. it is of non negotiable and critical importance to the dogs, the neighbors and to me.
