it really pissed us off recently after roofers came through and left our gate open letting our two dogs out.

they were picked up after some scrooge neighbor called animal control - these are very mild mannered labs who are mostly indoors. they both had tags. all the neighbor had to do was call the number on the tag. they were three houses away. it was only the 2nd time in 6 years they have been out by accident.

it end up costing us over 300 dollars to get them out of that filthy dirty tulsa animal shelter and pay for a visit to the vet and medication because within a couple of weeks - both dogs had kennel cough.

that place was so sickening, we wanted to adopt a dog, and offered to adopt two in lieu of having to pay some asinine "dog at large" ticket for $75.00 each in addition to all the rest of their fees but we couldn't afford it after all those fees.

sometimes i think these contractors purposely leave gates open, break sprinkler heads, crush bushes, and leave dangerous nails and sharp metal pieces throughout the yard just to take out their 'woe is me sorrow over my crappy job because i have no education', on the world at large.

those tree killers pretty much destroyed the trees along our street after their butcher jobs. arborists??? yeah right. you couldn't pay me to use that company that pso uses. i believe it's a privately owned company.

boycott them.

Does Asplundh make all their money through PSO?

Such a lucrative deal might explain why PSO doesnt want to bury lines.

Angie is right about checking your gates after the crew is gone. Years ago a tree company was doing work in my yard, did not close the gate and our dog was gone for 6 weeks.

What more do you want? They paid your vet bills and meds and fired the supervisor. It is obvious they don't tolerate this behavior. I smell a lawsuit out of this one.

You can't trust anyone to do a good job anymore. It is a rarity when someone takes responsibility for anything so my advice is if you know someone is coming into your yard and you have pets..take care of the pets in advance. Keep them inside or board them if you have to. You have to watch people like a hawk anymore. Sad state.

Get Real people....accidents happen. Sometimes I forget to lock my gate.......so what. As far as the trees go I have no sympathy for these tree people. I lose my electricity once at least once a year, most of the time for days on end. I say cut them all down if they are even near power lines or make the owners of these trees pay a fund to put people like me in hotels once a year when my electric goes out.

I think it would be more prudent to put you in a mental insititution.

Not only should you check your gates but also go out and check on the workers. I found the Asplundh fellows leaned up against the back of my house in my lawn chairs having a few beers. They left us an 8 foot tree trunk that now has tiny branches growing out in all directions, a mess of tiny branches everywhere and also a few beer cans tucked into the mess. And if you try calling PSO or an Asplundh supervisor,good luck trying to get anything resolved. In essence they suck.

I must be one of the rare ones who had trees cut by a PSO's contractor and they actually did a good job. They made sure my gate was closed so my dogs wouldn't get out. However, it is the meter reader who left the gate opened at my neighbors house. I have seen them do it several times. I shut the gate so their dog wouldn't get out. It may be their responsibility but sometimes people forget (not likely the case) or don't care.

Maybe the same ones who used a bucket truck to go over my fence into my pasture to cut down my trees. They cut down 167 trees between the corner and my house, leaving about 5 foot tall stumps all the way through. They tore up our fence as well. We did take them to court and they had to compensate us for the damage, but they'd do it again in a heartbeat if they had the chance!

No they don't make all their money through PSO. In fact they are nation wide. As far as keeping an eye on them that's a very good idea. I always make sure that they don't trim my trees too far back and destroy them. If they have to cut one down, I tell them to take it to the ground or not at all. They usually do a good job as long as you watch them like hawks.

Has anyone ever seen the "Nosak Raw" show, at about 2am? A tree trimming reality show (filmed by Nosak himself), it's just bizarre enough to be interesting (or if you can't sleep), and if you want some great chainsaw sound effects, go to their equally bizarre website: www.nosakraw.com

Yes, you need to keep your eyes on anyone doing work for you. However, it was the dog situation that resulted in her injuries. Why live with two dogs that have to be separated all the time. That's a bit crazy. People tend to set themselves up for a lot of things.

I agree I have had workers from pso leave big logs... and they aren't suppose to do that unless their is an emergency situation such as the ice storm... I had to get rid of the logs... I got rid of them when they picked up storm debri from the neighborhoods!!!!

Why would you have 2 dogs that have to weigh close to 100 to 140lbs apiece in the same house if they can't be kept together.

It sounds like her injuries are a result of being a poor pet owner. This breed of dog need way more room than you can provide in your little back yard.

You should have checked your gate before you let the other dog into the front yard. A place that it didn't belong in the first place.

I would be curious how her setup is when the gate is closed. Would one of the dogs stay in the front yard at all times? In the house? I think there is more to this than she is telling.

You couldn't keep these dogs seperate all the time without one being in the house and one outside.

If you can't handle your dogs. Find them another home.
