What place in your heart do dogs have?

Like the cats, your neighbor's dogs are victims of idiots, too. I personally don't think most dogs should be left outside unsupervised (meaning someone's home and aware of goings on), with exceptions of course. Our dogs are never outside when we're not home or up, and when they do get let out, the moment they start barking they come inside. I've had neighbors with obnoxiously barky dogs that are left outside constantly and it drove me crazy. Ironically that's often why many dogs bark incessantly - they're reacting to being deprived of being with their "pack" (aka people).

You know what dogs are saying when they're barking? "Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!" Or, when they're in a really puckish mood, "No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you! No sleep for you!"

Ad infinitum

Toby the Border Collie would be left inside while his owner was at work, and since that room is just a few feet away from my window... well, guess who had to listen to Toby express his separation anxiety all day?

I had to threaten my neighbor with a lawyer, and since the last firmly-worded letter he apparently got a shock collar for Toby the Yapping Border Collie. Sphinx Who Barks at Invisible Squirrels... I'm just glad she's not let outside for long any more, and besides, I'm sure she has a hard time finding the door.

Spike the Psycho Canary used to sing. My 2nd-born niece and her doofus husband shushed him every time he'd sing and now he doesn't sing any more. That still ticks me off. Anybody know how to get a canary to sing again?

I think it's very true that men don't get annoyed by noise as much as women. When we lived next to a (hopefully now totally deaf) moron who liked to play his thug rap music as loudly as possible, every day, it barely fazed Dad. It drove me INSANE! We had to call the cops on the neighbor several times, and I'm sure that several times they never could get him to answer the door, due to the (c)rap he was playing so loudly.

I just don't get people who force their noise onto others. Get headphones and a Besenji, if you need loud music and a dog. Good fences and quiet dogs make excellent neighbors! :)

All of it. He also has my bed, floor, kitchen, sofa, rug, porch, and bathroom. I don't know if I own him or he owns me. I think the cat knows but she isn't talking.

Similar to others here, I can't remember a time in my life where dogs were not a part of it. :lol:

Hope it never happens that this changes!

Coffee, dogs, horses. Other than the people in my life, can't imagine it w/out these 3 in it :D
