My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
We had an interesting night. Wednesday night my 16 year old step son (SS) was at a friend's doing homework, he lives about 2 blocks from a gas station/convenience store, so they decided to take a break and walk over there and get some snacks. When they came out, a girl from their high school was filling up her car with her out of town boyfriend, and the boyfriend walked up to SS, accused him of flirting with the girlfriend (which SS denies), and pulls a knife on him and asked him if he wanted it in his (expletive) throat. Then come to find out, he called the mother of another boy in SS's class, and accused him of harassing his girlfriend (which this kid denies too), and basically tells the mom that if she didn't take care of her son, he would. So, my husband called this other mom and got her story, then we called the police and filed a report. Thanks to Face Book, we were able to pull up pictures of both the boy and girl, found out the boy has several underage drinking tickets, driving after revocation, and he's due in court in two weeks for a car racing incident. So anyway, the police are on the lookout for this kid. They went to that gas station last night to see if anything was on the surveillance tape, hopefully there is. So we're all on extra alert right now, sure doesn't make for a good night's sleep. You'd hope by living in a small rural town of less than 4000, you could avoid crap like this, I guess not.
So please, keep my family in your prayers, that this kids leave us alone, and the other kid too. He just sounds like bad news. I have a 9 year old daughter who stands out waiting for the bus in the morning after my husband and I leave for work (her 2 brothers, 16 & 19 are are there, but still), but God forbid if he got it in his head to do anything to her. We're adding extra locks to the house, and thank goodness we have a large dog that barks if anyone pulls in the driveway, she'll let us know if anyone is around while we're home. (Thank God for rescued dogs!).

This is terrible. Jealousy (sp?) can be a dangerous thing especially when they are teens and young adults. Hopefully he'll be tracked down and your family will be able to breath a sigh of relief. Prayers to you and your family and I agree, Thank God for Rescued Dogs! They are the best.

Wishing you and your family the best. This type of situation can be unnerving that's for sure. You never know what others may be capable of doing. Keep your family safe and I am glad to hear that you have a dog. That always helps we also have a big dog..... a Doberman!
