as many of you know from this thread http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=385578 I've been trying to find my deceased neighbor's dog a home. I had found her a home, now I have her back. sigh............... The woman turned out to be psycho or schizo or whatever. Late thursday evening she left me a voicemail saying that she was attacked in her car and the dog jumped out the window of the car and ran off. After I listened to the message friday morning, I called her. She then told me that she had a home invasion and that the perps kicked the dog and she, the dog, ran out the door, not to be seen again that night. Friday morn, b4 I called her, but unknown to me, Floral Park police had called me to let me know that they had the dog in possesion. I told them good, either the woman or myself would pick her up. I then told FP police what the woman told me and they said that they heard nothing of it from NCPD 3rd precinct. So then I went to get the dog and the officer told me that he called NCPD 3rd again just to verify anything, but there was no report of a home invasion. He released the dog to me with the stipulation that I not return it to her as something wasn't right. Plus she needs a bath agian, somehow (which she will Jan 2nd). When I got to my car I called her and asked her if the police came and she filed a report, etc. to which she said yes, then I told her that there was no record to which she kept changing her story to maybe she filed a report, then she doesn't remember if she did, then maybe her aunt and uncle filed it, blah blah blah. I then said to her, "look you're holding something back from me. The FP Police were ready to arrest you on a misdemeanor charge because you would have given the same statement to them as you did to me, but fortunately for you, you didn't go to pick up the dog". Then she said something abut neighbor hood kids busting into her house and getting violent and locking her in her car and the dog ran off and she didn't want to get the kids in trouble with the police. She sounded genuinely distressed. But at the same time, I took this dog in to keep it from harm. Although, I don't know my neighbor who died, I think that it's what he would want. She was actually a bit peeved that I wouldn't bring the dog to her. I think a person in their right mind would be more understanding and tell me that they made a mistake and that they understand that I would/should think it over.
