good fences and my neighbors

Dear Neighbor,
I love dogs. If anything awful happened to my dog, I would be heartbroken. Your dog doesn't just jump over his eight foot fence, he vaults it, with several feet to spare. Then he runs around the neighborhood and into the path of on-coming cars. Your neighbors eventually catch him and either put him back into your yard, or keep him in theirs until you get home from work. Neighbor, you know all of this, and yet you don't even equip your dog with a collar and tags. One of these days, a neighbor won't be around to take care of him for you.

There's a very simple solution to all of this: put the dog inside the house when you go to work.
