|At a dog festival in October. I think they got more attention than any other dog there. Everyone adored them:)|
|We also went to Octoberfest! Like the other festival, the dogs got (almost) as much attention as the beer & sausages!|
Beyond them just being awesome dogs in general, Zoey has become best buds with all of them, which is a true testament to their good nature. Zoey can only be trusted around dogs that completely ignore her and give her plenty of space. Until recently, Kaya and Norman were the only dogs Zoey had accepted as friends and not enemies(aka: lunch) in the past 8 years. I think Zoey loves pit bulls!

So when an officer arrived at her house and demanded $1200 in fines for the complaints, she could only tell him she did not have the money. He repeatedly demanded the payment from her and she told him honestly, over and over, "I don't have the money."
The next morning, 6 police cars arrived at her house including a SWAT team prepared with shields, masks and guns and an animal control van. They presented her with a warrant to search the property and moved inside to search the house. As about 15 armed men in full riot gear filled the living room, each of her 5 pit bulls barely lifted their heads from the couch, where they were enjoying a mid-morning nap. As the officers approached them, the dogs offered kisses to their out-stretched hands and then went back to sleep. The officer agreed to drop all the charges and release her from paying any fines. Then she requested that they stop bothering her and her dogs:)

Luckily, it all ended well, but I really feel for her living next to someone like that! Obviously, her neighbor has never even tried to meet one of her dogs. And from what I understand, the neighbor owns a small dog. Yes, one of those who has a lot to say about nothing. But I love how unfazed her dogs were in that situation, she must have been such a proud dog-momma:)
|Zoey finally found some cool dogs she can hang with:)|
