    I have a place lined up for Mac, if he needs to disappear.
    What happened with the idea that the Kid's Mom was possibly willing to just
    *forget* the whole incident and not press a complaint?

    Did somebody *get to her* and change her mind?
    Did YOU ever get to meet with her?

    Is there still a possibility that she might speak up FOR Mac to lessen his penalties?

    Could Mac adjust to Ohio?
    How far is it to Whitehorse?

    The father came home. He is much more aggressive. He firmly believes Mac should be put down. I have spoken to the Mom several times and to the Dad once. I have no doubt that the push for a dangerous dog designation is coming from him.

    AC here doesn't usually issue anything until they the agreement of the "victim". I assume that the officer told them about the fine and dd and they agreed. The only way for them to have more input now would be if I don't pay the ticket and take the matter to court. Frankly, I don't want to do that. Not only would it cost me thousands, but it could blow up in my face. The judge would have the authority to revoke any accomodations made by AC and order Mac's death. I'll take muzzled, on a one metre leash and all the other requirements over dead.

    I'll be speaking to the manager of the by-law department this week. I have ten days to voluntarily pay the fine. I'm hoping we can work out some kind of comprimise before that.

    Correct me if I am wrong - But - father was not present at the time this happened? It was you, the child and his mother? Why does father get to weigh in if he was not even there? All he knows is what was told to him. Mac is NOT dangerous.

    I'd be willing to speak on your behalf if you want to give me this person's name and number (or address). Any chance we can get you re-zoned so you are outside municipal limits?

    Because the victim was a very young child who is unable to speak for himself, the opinions of both parents are considered in the determination. Doesn't matter if he was there or not. His child was involved so they have to get his input.

    No chance at rezoning. I am already given a special permit to keep my dogs at all. If I was buying my property today, I could only have four dogs there, six if all my neighbors agreed. I was there before that rule came into effect so my dogs are grandfathered. I can not move them off my property within the city. I have to leave the city if I want to move and keep my dogs. Another musher can not buy my property.

    Our plan is to move outside the city eventually, but the market is insane here right now. It is extremely difficult to find any property with some acreage that is dog team friendly(even outside the city limits, many areas ban dog teams) and that has a reasonable purchase price. A half million dollar mortgage is just not going to happen!

    I don't want to have anyone else contact the department right now. If I end up in court, I will be looking for letters ect for support!

    Another update..

    Yesterday I wrote a three page letter to the manager of the By-Law department, the big wig of AC, asking for an exception to the dangerous dog rules. He knows us, but I wrote like he had never heard of me before. I gave him all of Mac's history, hoping his lousy puppyhood might pull some heartstrings!

    I described my fencing, kennel set-up, escape precautions. Told him that Mac is already kept in a secure manner, that he's neutered, permanently id'ed and that I have plenty of liability insurance(all things that a dangerous dog designation requires). Explained why I let Mac run loose to start with(to distract loose dogs from jumping my team). That he's never been a problem in any way before and that he will never be off-leash again. Explained that he is high energy and needs an outlet; has no ability to wander when he's in harness and asked that he be allowed to continue his life as a working dog.

    I reititerated that Mac was not acting aggressively; that he was playing. And I invited him to the house to meet Mac in his normal environment displaying his normal behavior, anytime he wants to come by. I don't have anything to hide.

    He emailed me this morning saying that he had forwarded the information to the investigating officer(who I think was on my side) and his supervisor(the second in command of AC) for their input and a response. So, he didn't outright say NO which gives me some hope that we can reach an agreement that works for everyone.

    Keep your paws crossed!

    I think it was a good move to invite one of the authorities to visit your
    house set up at any time, & be welcomed.I believe the fine is plenty
    fair & he'll have a pledge it won't happen again. Prayers continue for
    you and Mac.

    Prayers please for rcgirl_ca, who didn't ask for them, but who emailed to let me know she slipped on some ice and put her back out. She still cannot sit for very long, but is getting better. Prayers for rapid recovery for her!

    Grandpa is back in hospital again, after falling and hitting his head in the shower because he was complaining of dizziness. Oh, and the hospital released him the same day this happened. More prayers are needed, again. I don't know how much of this I can take.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. She's not having a good year. She just got over being very sick and now this. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent her way.
