  1. Oh, please (eye roll). What a drama queen. How about the owner control their own dogs? There's a thought. The only one to blame is the irresponsible owner who obviously couldn't control their dogs. If the dogs weren't loose this wouldn't have happened.

  2. The dogs dug a hole and got out of the yard. The owner called animal control to report the dogs missing. Ive pet those dogs. Super friendly!!
