The Garbage man
[Return to Topics]

The last 2 months any time i move my dump truck my white German Shepard goes ape. When it first started was at the shop and thought i heard the garbage man barking at the dog. Then i thought i was just hearing things. This after noon i came home to get my service truck and mom met me at the door said the garbage man on the back of the truck was barking at the dog and when he came back through he was leaning way off the side of his little stand poking a metal rod at the dog. Im still P1%$$ed off about it. We spent alot of time breaking dogs from chasing traffic and thats the only thing they chase it because of the county retard. I called the supervisor and he said he was allowed to defend himself with the stick and i musthave missheard him barkin. I told him if he wanted to poked at the dog do it on the same ground and see how different it is. If its not cured i have an unlimited source of quarter sized hard green apples and a good sling shot lol.
The dynamic duo also drive way too fast and have had a few close calls with tractors on these little roads. But this messing with my dog really took the cake. It may get cured as this is election year or it may get ugly. Ive worked as a garbae man when dad owned a refuse company and as long as any of our hands never messed with a dog we never had and chasers.

heres the thing with dogs and daily service and delivery people. the dog is protecting his property. he sees a threat coming, he barks, the threat eventially goes away. the dog thinks "this barking thing really works" so with every delivery the ups guy makes it enforces the bark/protect method.

off hand i would say tie or pen the dog, run a video camera of you ediot garbage collector trying to provoke the dog into the street. go to the supervisors boss or to the spca guys. that way maybe you can get rid or two public servants that don't think they are suspost to serve the public. if they let the guy continue to get away with it.. well no telling where it will end.

yeah.. hard to understand why dog bark at garbage man.. My dog has been doing this alot of times even if I am outside.. most time I watch from window to be sure those garbage man dont hit or hurt my dog.. I guess the dog did not like garbage trucks b/c taking what smells is ours' and garbage truck smells bad.! never know.
but my dog pass away. (wolf)

People are just ignorant regarding animals. Sometimes I think the animals communicate better!

I have a friend that is in the towing business and he issues pepper spray but to make sure an employee knows what an animal goes through employees have to get a mist of it. What burns me is that i owned this dogs father and he had been picked on by an ignorant family member and ruined to the point only me and my barents could hanle him. Anmost folks in town would bang on the windows and cab of a truck if he was in there. This dog is well tempered and likes most folks. Dad told me if he does it again he ll show the garage man what getting poked at with a stick is like. The fun part of it dad was serious as he could be.

Taylor..Normally the men like to watch a dog fight..Maybe get some neighbor dogs over as they may want to watch.(really,I hope things get better)..Lenore and I enjoy reading about how you started off into construction.We think you did ok.The times in my life I was socializing with friends could have been better spent working.You missed very little.

Cant dog fight here lol unless theres a gravy and biscuit involved lol. In 23 years here we never have had many dog fights. I found out today that the garbage man got caught last month and was was warned for the same offense. Last time he had a rag tied on the end of the rod to egg the dog on.
