This is why I think it's OK to let Laverne "I must be free, FREE!" wander the neighborhood, even though SH is worried that she will be eaten by the non-existent pit bulls. She is scared of
1. The lawnmower (our reel lawnmower)
2. The garage door, both opening and closing
4. The 70-year-old lady who walked past our house yesterday. She was carrying a bag of groceries, so I can see how she might be perceived as threatening.
