I'll get you, my pretty... and your little DOG too!

I am seriously considering taking out a hit on the dog next door. It will not shut up. Last night they left it outside for at least 30 minutes and it barked THE WHOLE TIME. (Coincidentally it was during the entire broadcast of American Idol.) I'm not talking a "arf" here or there... It BARKED for half an hour straight. It's a terrier so it's that little "yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip..." constant-type-bark. I even went outside and looked around hoping there was something valid he would be barking at. Nope. Just the wind.


I think I was more upset last night to learn the lesson that you still can't control your neighbors - even in a nice neighborhood. Why did these people get a dog if they don't want anything to do with it? Dogs are pretty labor intensive and if you don't have the time to spend with one, or even the time to train it, then why get one? It's really not fair to the dog.

I will take a picture of the culprit tonight... along with a picture of the patio furniture. (Sorry Kevin!!)

When we lived in JAX we had a similar problem with our neighbor and her yippy dog. Our only consolation was that she never let the dog out before 9 am and didn't keep him out later than 8 pm. I think you have every right to complain though if you start hearing the yipping at unreasonable hours.
