We have dogs... 3 dogs. Two big labs, one little beagle.
We have a neighbor, many neighbors actually, but one in particular who lives right behind us.
Our dogs bark sometimes... our neighbor doesn't care for this.
Our neighbor tore down the wooden fence between our properties, put up a wrought iron fence (to improve their view), tore out one of my big bushy bushes in the process... and now... complains about our dogs.
Our neighbor put a pool in right next to the fence and doesn't like it when our dogs run around and bark as his kids noisily jump, laugh & play.
Our neighbor has loud parties... late parties... keeping us awake type of parties... we've never said a word.
Our neighbor's son shot our beagle with an airsoft gun last summer... now she howls when they come home everyday. He doesn't like this either (yet refuses to acknowledge the logic of the beagles fearful reaction to their presence).
Our neighbor calls if one of the dogs bark for dinner.
Our neighbor calls if we are not home and our beagle howls... he calls a lot... he calls and leaves recordings of our dog howling. He calls and leaves "teacher voice" messages like we are stupid fools who are simply letting our dogs bark. (He's an 8th grade teacher and his voice radiates condescension.)
Our neighbor ignores my children when they say "hi". (Did I mention he's a teacher?)
None of our other neighbors hear our dogs. I'm thinking I don't like this neighbor too much. I'm thinking we're going to put a big thick wooden fence along the back of our yard so our dogs can't bother him, he can't bother them, and... most importantly... he stops bothering me!
Just saying... now back to knitting. Hmph!
