“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday I received notice, through my mail slot, that someone had filed a complaint with animal control alleging my (tiny) dog had bit them, and requiring me to present my dog for a health inspection twice, once immediately, and once in six months. Thing is, the dog described is the wrong color and wrong size, and moreover neither I nor the dog were home on the date of the alleged incident.

Anyone have any experience dealing with this? I’m hoping to hear about it before I give animal control a call to sort this out.”
