    here,since many years
    Thanked: 4689
    though one also should keep in mind, there are many old people around where the dog might be the only companion they have! and one can hardly teach such a mutt,because most of them are just that, to pee into the toilet. therefore i see the grannies or old men, walking their dogs, staying away from other people. that is more or less what we all do,including me. Jhinn HAS to go out 4 or 5 times a day,he is an old dog and needs to be. we do have police patrols around here, and no one bothered us. we do not stick together, do our rounds and go home again...
