Possible Poisoning attempt
After living behind someone for 25 years who has dog after dog after dog that barks (she now has 9 pugs), I can understand why someone would "think" about doing SOMETHING, but I think more of doing something to the people than the dogs. It's not the dogs' fault. I have called at 2 a.m. after being up all night with their dogs inscescent barking, telling them who I was and if I'm up, they will be up too! After numerous nights of this, they finally put their dogs in the house. I understand this is now the world of cell phones, so this may not work as well, but jam up their mailbox. Maybe eventually they'll get the hint. We are in the country so there are no "barking" laws here. You just have to try to work with the neighbors. They keep their house locked up both night and day, with either the air conditioning on or heat on so they can't hear their dogs barking. She actually told me someone gave her one of the dogs because in the city the dog had so many complaints that they were going to put the dog down, so they gave it to her so the dog could live in the country where the neighbors don't care if the dogs bark or not!!???!!! What is wrong with people? We have 3 dogs of our
own, and I'd be imbarressed if my dogs (or kids) were disturbing our neighbors.
