Just the Hazelnut. Yes, she is just over a year old, and yes, she still wiggles so much it's hard to get a clear picture.
It seems that the dog has been banned where Miss Lizzie currently lives, and will be turned over to the pound if seen on the property. A neighbor tried to aggressively tease the Hazelnut, and she growled at the person. The neighbor then claimed, though witnesses say otherwise, that the dog tried to bite her.
The landlord, not wanting to get into it all, just told them to get the dog off the property.
Miss Lizzie has nowhere else for the Hazelnut to go, and as much as i do not like the way she left here, or approve of her lifestyle now -- she's back to living with her old boyfriend, who has been in jail multiple times since they got back together, the latest time for stealing her car -- the poor dog is an innocent victim in all of this.
So we are dogsitting.
Just call me Softy.
