I can sooooo relate to this…so I feel at least part of your pain. :mad::mad::mad:
Our neighbor to the right has a beagle which I'm pretty sure is an outside only dog. Anytime they come home or a visitor comes in the driveway, the dog starts barking and will go on for hours. I've heard it bark for 2 or more hours - of course it usually is around 10pm, but always on the weekend during both days. Anyway, my b kids can be sleeping, but the minute that thing starts barking they start running around like crazy because with the windows open, it sounds like it is right outside.
Imagine my feeling about the barking the last 8 weeks when I've been trying to keep Brando quiet because of his broken leg. It hasn't been good. :mad::mad::mad:
I don't hate the dog, I feel sorry for the dog...but I can't stand the neighbors! And we live on 2.5 acres - I can't imagine living closer to someone whose dog barks all the time AND comes in my yard. Luckily, our neighbors don't have dogs that run into the yard very often, but there are plenty on the street that come running out at us when we walk.
I will say though, we really do have a bunch of idiot dog owners on our street. :rolleyes: On our road, 2 dogs have gone missing - of course anytime I ever saw them they were wandering in the road. Another neighbor - one of their dogs walks with a serious limp (looks like it was hit by a car) oh, and guess what - that one was always chasing something into the road or on the road. We have another neighbor who rides around with his yellow lab loose in the back of his pickup. He told my brother he would love to breed one of my basenjis to a beagle (to make the ultimate hunting dog) - my brother just laughed at him and said no way that was happening. :rolleyes:
Yup, can you tell...I love my neighbors. :rolleyes:
