The wife called me in a panic this afternoon, a neighbour had rung her at work to tell her that 2 RSPCA inspectors were noseying around the house and looking at the kennels.
Thankfully my neighbour is a bit of a curtain twitcher and went out to question them as to what they thought they were doing. They were very off with her at first but she kept on at them until they told her.
Apparently they had been informed that I had been abusing the dogs and one had been killed recently in the kennels, to which my neighbour replied that she had never heard such rubbish.
So when I get home I find a very formal note through the door asking them to contact them immediatley, which I do and speak to an unhelpful voice on the end of the phone informing me that they will be intouch.
Im well aware of their total lack of powers and bullying tactics and am unconcerned but very miffed that for some reason ive been targeted.
Later tonight the inspector call and after the formalities I question what the problem is to which he replies there is absolutely no problem and was sorry to have caused any concern but they had a call and had to respond.
Are they working dogs? Yes its obvious they are. Yes it is says the inspector I could tell because they look so well looked after and healthy.
I could see as soon as I turned up that the allegations were unfounded. What about this utter tripe about one of my dogs being killed in kennel? Well the caller said they saw blood on the kennel floor(at which point im now seriously concerned as to who's been tresspassing) Oh blood...hmmm I think I can tell you the answer to that inspector, why do the dogs look so healthy do you think?, because they get fed the BARF diet alot. Ah yes replies the inspector so you feed them alot of raw meat.....very good your dogs are a real credit to you and im very sorry to have caused any concern again.
I was glad that my neighbour set them straight though as it could have been abit more drawn out.
So not all RSPCA are little hitlers which im glad to discover.
Now to find out who's got a grudge to bear with me things could get very interesting for them.
