Today I was scheduled to attend Small Claims Court with Kathi, whose dog was attacked on July 5, resulting in $600.00 in veterinary expenses. At the last minute, the dog's owner has promised to pay the bill without going to court.
This is good news. But it is both my personal experience and observation that many people won't pay until they are looking directly at court. That means filing fees and serving fees and lots of paperwork for the victim. Not fair. But neither are dog attacks.
It is unclear if the authorities filed charges against the owner of the attacking dog. Will report when that is clarified.
Meanwhile, Best Wishes Kathi. Hope the payment agreement holds up and hope that Chantal is totally recovered.
