Today I ratted out my neighbor's dog to the housing department. I feel slightly guilty like I should've gone over there myself and asked them about their dog. But the very thought of walking outdoors in 75 degree heat with 75% humidity gives me swollen feet. And I swear it's hotter than that. It's too hot to leave the windows and doors closed considering we do not have AC. My thermostat on my living room wall says 80 degrees in here. But anyways . . . that dog barks constantly. I know it has some kind of doggie door or they just leave the backdoor open for it to go in and out. What I don't understand is why it doesn't just go inside or why they don't hear it barking NONSTOP and find out what's wrong or quiet it.
Is it possible your dog needs some fresh water? Does your dog need some of your attention? Do you realize it's nap time?! Are you even home?!! Do you realize you HAVE A DOG?!!!
Believe me, I considered putting the sprayer nozzle on the hose and shooting it through the holes in the fence at the dog. But I did not.
7/17/09 So, the housing office sent a nice calm reminder to the neighbors about not having their dog bark constantly. But that was about daytime constant barking.
But tonight the dog has been barking nonstop since 9:07 p.m. It is 11:29 p.m. Grrr. Danny wants me to bake cookies so when he goes over to talk to them tomorrow it will go smooth. I hope so. I hope it will go smooth considering my ankles will cankle-up and my feet will swell two or three sizes baking those cookies. Read Danny's thoughts here.
