So, taking all your fabulous suggestions into account, the peeps went over to the neighbors' house to talk to them. We hadn't heard a thing about Plymouth, no apology or anything. But, at least once since the Plymouth attack, their dogs had dug under the fence (which is almost 5 feet high and chain link) and were in OUR yard! Thank dog we were inside both times.
The peeps talked to the neighbor, telling him (nicely but firmly) that his dogs had been out several times in the few days we'd been there and that he needed to do something about it. They mentioned that we have little dogs and chickens, then they neighbor brought up Plymouth. He seemed genuinely sorry about her, and told us that the dogs belong to his father, an older man who lives there too. He said he's been meaning to put electric fencing along his side (so why hasn't he done it yet??????) and that he was fine with us fixing the fence.
Our plan of attack is to fill in the holes the dogs have already dug with concrete , then putting some form of visual barrier against the fence. Possibly barbed or razor wire along the top to make sure they can't jump over. We though about putting barbed wire along the bottom, but that would be a bad idea (as you can guess, with small dog breeds, that's a recipe for disaster.).
So we'll just go from there, and if the keep digging under we'll have to cement the entire length of the fence. If any more issues arise, the authorities will be called. Thanks again for all your advice, my Blogville family!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
