Dopey Over Dobermans
The place: Sharon Hill
The family: James Patterson, Donna Lauria and their four Doberman Pinschers.
James and Donna are selling their home instead making a Sophie's Choice.
Their neighbor, Shelli Towey weighed in this morning with this e-mail:
Just wanted to say a few words about the family with the four dobies. I live next door to James, Donna, Romy and the other three boys. I own the adjoining twin. When I found out my new neighbors were going to have 4 dogs my only concern was the back yard wasn't fenced and I worried as I have cats. The new fence went up before they moved in.
I have to tell you that I feel really bad for this family. They are great neighbors and these dogs don't bother me. They are quiet, well cared for and you don't even know they are there. They are never left outside unattended and James is out there cleaning up after them as soon as they go back in the house. I don't feel anyone should complain about something if it doesn't affect them. There are lots of dogs in our town that might get free, run in traffic or just bark a lot.
I feel for this family. They where looking for a nice place to live and thought they had found one. I wish they didn't have to move.
I've lived in this house for over 20 years and was so happy to have nice people move in next door.
PS. My cats don't seem to mind the dogs either!! They find them entertaining to watch!
