Bitter sweet

Sign just came down. My neighbors are moving. The ones with the two noisey as heck dogs. My neighbors were generally very nice, and I'm quite sad to see THEM go...but at least their dogs are going with them. I hope the new neighbors will have fish.

Depending on how rural your neighborhood is, you may have been able to get your neighbors ticketed for not shutting their dogs up. Most cities have noise laws, especially after 10 pm or so.

Yes but that's mean and that creates disrupt. That would be like me reporting my neigbhors for smoking pot so bad i can smell it all the way over here. "Sure" i could report it but then everybody would know about it and everybody would give me dirty looks and . Well yeah I've been down that road before

i know the feeling. i love dogs but the barking can drive you crazy. in college i had a great dog but every time i'd ride off to go to class he would bark. i could hear him barking for a while too. i was at a lose on how to get him to stop doing that. i'm sure the neighbors hated it.

I hate whining neighbors.They wanna pee & moan about everything (like barking dogs,yard cosmetics & the like) then when you keep the dogs quite & then they get burglarized or have something stolen from their backyard or garage, then they have something else to moan abbout
Heh.. We have a couple of pee & moan neighbors & being in somewhat of a rough neighborhood that's not good. What one sees is not always what one tells

Can a dog owner please explain to me why people
shouldnt be pissed at your dog assaulting peoples
quality of life ?? If I want to hear all of that noise
Ill move next door to a bunch of bikers or buy my own
dog. I bet if I aimed my 50 watt Marshall amp at your
house and played it at 11 whenever I felt like it needed
to be played you would be annoyed. I also have observed
most of you people who carry the little bag and spoon around
dont really pick up the mess unless you see someone is looking.
Guess what....people you dont see are looking.

Barking dogs are most often neglected dogs. Always had dogs growing up, and I can't remember any of them barking for nothing. IMO, complaints are legitimized.

Along goes mowers and chainsaws, and ATVs/snowmobiles, etc. at unsociable day/times. Don't some people love making noise?

None of that nonsense where we live now, thank god!

No! Not ALL complaints are NOT legitimized. Some people live on whining & complaining.

I was not saying one should give a dog chocolate but that the title made me think chocolate.






Besides Antifreeze would be much more effective......

to make other peoples lives miserable ?? Rules of common sense and
civility dont apply to you ?
How about this.....

Well...it's hard to call the cops on a cop. My neighbor is a police officer. Have to admit it made me "feel" a bit safer having a police car parked next door.

But I would never actually call the cops on a barking dog. I mean, really...they are dogs, that's what they do. Now if you were playing your thumpitty thump music at midnight keeping my family awake, then I would walk over in my pj's and politely ask you to lower the volume. Something of which you have control over.

Anywhoo...I would love to move to the country as suggested, but there ain't much country around these parts...'cept the music maybe!!

Oh...and I KNOW my S*!$ stinks...just ask my hubby

I would have to disagree 100% with this. Its in a dogs nature to bark. The same way cats meow if they want something.

It may be a dog's nature to bark, but so is crapping and peeing in the house. We train dogs to do the things we want them to do and NOT to do the things that annoy us.

We have always had dogs and never have we tolerated incessant barking. I don't know how some dog owners can stand it. They will bark when someone approaches the house. Once they've alerted us, we tell them to hush and they do.

for sure. but if a dog is not trained not to bark, then it doesnt mean that it is neglected.

i never leave my dog outside when there is nobody in the house. Even if we are in the house and we hear him barking outside at a bird or a passer by, then we tell him to shut up, he usually does, but if he doesnt we bring him back into the house.

Dogs are nothing compared to jerks with loud music. There were some down the street that had it up so loud that when I went and pounded on the door (As in hard enough the door shook and moved over an inch) they did not even hear it. I was thinking of getting the dogs and then kicking their door down but decided it was time for the police instead.

You aren't kidding! I came out once to find a guy peeing on our van's tire.

Holy crap! I was so bent. If he hadn't turned and split as soon as I started cursing him out, I probably would have kicked the tar out of him.
