Monday morning I was visiting teaching Arlene. When we finished our lesson and visit, she and I went to her backyard to see her flowers, vegetables and herbs. As I was walking along the path in the side yard, the neighbor's dog, which was chained up, lunged at me several times. It clawed my side and tore a huge hole in my shirt. Today I called the family and told them what happened and that perhaps they should make the chain smaller because Arlene's little grandchildren are coming for a long visit. I didn't want those children to be hurt. The lady apologized and asked me if I wanted a new shirt. I told her no that I just wanted her to be aware of the problem. She replied by telling me that the dog was very nice and that she herself had quite a few children and that the dog was always nice to them. I'm not quite sure that dog is so nice.
