So I used to have a lovely neighbour, that was until i brought Jesse home! For over 8 years now my neighbour has been removing the existing hedging in the back garden to be replaced by his own, hand made wooden fence. I will be honest and say the completed sections look lovely. However there is a massive gap in between our two gardens only separated by a mesh wire garden fence. We've always had dogs, and when they were out in the garden, they would often bark at him or his wife. Unfortunately my two dogs passed away and I decided to get Jesse a delightful, energetic Heinz Variety bean. Last October while his wife was hanging out washing, Jesse stood on her back legs, with front paws on the fence barking and growling at her. I came home and was confronted with an angry neighbour, understandably and I was mortified. However when he threatened Jesse's life, that's when my attitude changed. I began by reminding him that he was informed i was getting another dog, where he agreed the fence would be finished. I also reminded him that the fence has been a work in progress for over 8 years, but being good neighbours, we never pushed the issue. I ended the argument with one question "had the fence been finished, would the incident have happened?" He couldn't answer, because he knew i was right. My question is.......am I? As a result of this, my Jesse (who is a collie cross) cannot have full use of the garden in the property i purchased. She only access the back garden now on a lead.
