On the People's Court, a dog is left to be boarded and it gets a cut in
its front paw with much blood and requiring three stitches.
Acc. to the kennel owner, all it had was a cement floor, block walls,
and chainlink gate.
Isnt the chain link attached with screws and nuts, with the head usually
facing out and the threaded end facing in, and since nothing else is
around, isn't it most likely arent' the end of one of the screws was
sharp enough and cut the dog?
Do they make vinyl caps to cover the threads of the screws?
The owner seemed to sincerely think there was no way to make his kennel
(Cost him over 1000 dollars in vet bills.)
More likely the dog was trying to dig under the fence and got cut on
the twisted ends of the fence wire. They are pretty sharp. If this is
a domestic fence they put the twisted end down and the bent over end
up. On a security fence they turn it the other way with the sharp
twisted ends up. That is usually 6' or 8' mesh tho.
The other possibility is the wire they tie the top and bottom of the
mesh to the rails. A good installer turns that twisted end in so it is
not sticking out.
I did a little "fencing" in High School. Lot of work for not enough
I hae only boarded my cat once when I was unable to get a cat sitter.
It cost a little more, but I preferred boarding our cat with our vet.
She got very personal care, a large cage with cushions and toys, and
all of her favoarite foods. If I'd had a dog I'd have done the same

400 for xrays, and 2 visits. The first night he was vomiting, diarrhea,
and some other bad symptom, so they took him back.
Yes, they have that stuff that one dips tool handles in. That would
work probably if there are sharp spots and pre-fab caps can't be found.
I'll have to go find a chain link fence and check, though what screws
are used in one place doesn't guarantee what will be used somewhere
else. One could be sharper than the other.
It couldn't have been from digging because it was indoors and the floor
He was only there an hour this time before he got hurt. This was the
5th time the dog had been there, the other times for 2 or 3 days each
with no incident, but he was very restless this time, the kennel owner
said, "fence fighting" with the dogs on either side of him, who didn't
respond. But they put him in a "kennel" with cement block walls and a
"guillotine" door to the outside, where he hadn't gone, and a chain link
gate, which I figure must have been the problem.
