He is a police officer and keeps a gun on him 24-7. DD, DH an I were playing outside today and the dog ran at DD and attempted to bite her. After I picked her up, he shot the dog. I am upset, not because he protected our daughter but because our neighbors are extremely redneck and quite frankly I am afraid they will attempt to do something while I am home alone. I have been having anxiety since this has happened. Its completely ridiculous.
My brother's dog got shot by a neighbor for chasing his cattle. I think your daughter is more precious than any farm animal is, so your husband is completely justified in what he did. I hope that your neighbors can understand that. Hopefully they will think about the situation wth their own children in mind.
