Maybe see if she's good with your dogs and can hang out at your house? Especially if it's that hot outside!!! I know I'm a weirdo in that respect though. I jump at any opportunity to offer to provide dog daycare for neighbors with friendly dogs. My dogs get way more exercise and stimulation with new dogs around.

I'd definitely point out that she DOES bark all day, and other neighbors could complain about that and get her fined. And that it's too hot for her to be out all day.

I'm not as generous as you are. I really don't need or want another dog hanging out at my house. I have enough work to do as it is and don't need more hair, more dog pee making brown spots in my lawn and more responsibility. If something ever went wrong with the dog, I could be blamed...like if it ate slug bait or some other awful thing. My dogs aren't interested in slug bait, but some are. My big thing that I work hard on are my gardens and I don't want more dogs trampling through them. I don't know how this dog would behave. BUT....I would be willing to go over there and visit with the dog a little...throw a ball, take it on a walk around the block. So, I might see about that. However, that dog isn't there all the time, but sometimes for several days in a row...here and there.

You're right...other neighbors might complain. But the dog doesn't bark so terribly much. It's mostly whining/howling. Today there were lots of lulls in it....probably on account of the heat. I hope I don't insult her telling her that it's too hot outside for the dog. I'm such a scardy cat about offending my neighbors. lol. I just want to keep this a nice place to live and not have problems with neighbors. I can hardly think of anything worse. Been there, done that a long time ago and it was awful. I had some psychotic neighbors in the past....seriously. I'll have to make a thread about that too some time. LOL.

Thanks for the ideas though. I will definitely say something as gingerly as possible.

I would come at it from the stand point of worrying about the dog, "oh, your dog seems so sad during the day when you're gone, crying, howling, barking, moaning, etc" Rather than from the stand point of, "uhm, your dog is loud, please make it stop"

Coming from the point of you feel bad for the dog, IMO, is more friendly (which is what I think you're looking for?) then simply asking her to keep her dog quite.

Oh! I wasn't about to come at it in any other way besides concern for the poor dog....because that's really the main thing I am feeling....sympathy for the dog. I definitely don't want to come off as complaining or in any way accusatory.

Well dang...I didn't see her when she came home, so didn't get a chance to talk to her. Hmmm...maybe this week end. That's all. Will update if there's anything newsworthy.

That is good. But like a lot of Washingtonians, (western Wa) I bet dogs are also not accustomed to such hot weather as we're having. I think being acclimated to it over a long time helps.
