This is ridiculous. It's almost impossible to stop a dog from ever escaping, at least once in it's lifetime, and the one time my Zena escaped (one of Billy's friends actually opened the door and let her out in the front yard while I was in the bathroom) she was so excited she set off at a full run. Maybe Rolo was just feeling happy and playful? It seems that this woman is unjustly afraid of large dogs, as many people are. Also, I find it odd that all the neighbors are testifying about how dangerous a dog with no history of aggression is. Sounds like neighborhood politics. Either Rolo's person is the neighborhood 'black sheep' or the woman who got 'bit' has been exaggerating the incident to the other neighbors. I'm insensed at the injustice of this situation. Poor Rolo.
