My across-the-road neighbors have two really big, scary-looking dinosaurish dogs and today was the second time I've seen the pair of them wandering loose and eating my outdoor cats' food. I wasn't worried that they'd be hit by a car or get lost or anything because we live in a really tiny, isolated, quiet neighborhood, and I saw the dogs get called home after a short while.|
I later mentioned it in passing to my mom, who is scared of dogs, and she freaked out and insisted I call the police if I see the dogs loose again because I would be "dead in a second" if they were to attack me. I really don't want to have to call the police for any reason, I think talking to the owners would be a better idea sooo ... what should I say to them and still sound friendly? I don't know my neighbors at all, and I don't want to sound whiny/bitchy, or threatening if I let them know my mom would call the police.
