Default wierd neighbours?

did u know well it s law here, but dogs are not allowed to bark if it desturbs neighbours my panphlet says"there are NO "ok to bark hours" despit what people may think"..thats what it says...luckily poe is pretty good at not barking..once in awhile(blue moon) ....BUT hes a dog so hopefully no one will complain.
there were people who complained about boggles barking(we were working on it) ..and we understood their concern...butthey called us ignorant, and this wil not be tolerated...and they will sue us..and they didnt put there names because they said they do not want to be "picked on or patronized by the owners" like my mom and dad weould do that?
well any ways a month after our dog was a victim of hot dog poisoning people put hotdogs with poison and threw them over the fence so the dog would eat it and die...i sure hope it wasnt that people who wrote the notes but who knows...luckily he was ok...even though he died months l8r from seizures.

If someone works all night long and sleeps during the day why would it be ok to have dogs barking at nothing during the day? Where I lived, before I came here that was the case. Instead of getting pissy about it we just moved. Moving is a lot of energy and expense and I wasnt very happy with it and I like dogs. I dont feel that its right for our activities to ever interfere with the folks around us.

the point im trying to make is not if they were right or wrong, but how they came about it...calling us ignorant not putting their names cuz they think we'll pick on them, is not the way to go about it at all...IM SSORRY...but that wasnt the point at all.
...besides im pretty sure they did the hotdog thing..wont get into details and dont know for sure...but have many leads to back me up. and he didnt bark that bad at all...and i said i understand their situation..we made sure it wasnt inconvienent.. i dont know where ur going with this. the point was the neighbours and what they did and said not my dog barking, many dogs bark at my street one house got two pup hounds boy they wake u up at 1 oclock..my dog never did that.. just cuz he barked a few times doesnt mean they have a right to do and say what they did?!
so ur saying im getting pissy about it?
ecuse me but i will not tolerate ppl calling my family ignorant and bullies and then waht happened to my dog?
im sorry but i do get pissy and still hold a grudge when my dog is suspiciously poisoned...my neighbourhood also found out it was some1 on our street.........he didnt even really bark thats the point and they had then nerve to not even say who they were PREDICTING" WE WOULD BE RUDE TO THEM, AND VERBALLY ATTACK THEM"......thats the point...guys plz dont say well u shouldnt let ur dog bark..i didnt explain it well on my first post but he only barked when we were playing with him out in the yard...for a toy or such

Fearing retaliation isnt unwarranted. People who do things within the law have very little recorse to deal with people who have no regard for it. The problem is people dont have the information about someones desire to adhere to the laws until it is too late. If you have a dog that makes noise in an area where someone lives that doesnt like it and said person has either no faith in the law or no regard for it you will find that your dog gets silenced one way or another. I am not saying that it is right, Im just saying that, that is the way it is.

Many dog owners dont think that their dogs little bit of growling at the kids by the fence isnt a big problem. They dont think that their little darlings barking is really all that bad. They dont think that an occasional confrontation between man and dog warrants death for the dog. What dog lovers see as cute playfullness is seen by others as mischief.

In my case someones cute little puppy cost me several nights sleep, about $2300 in moving expenses counting deposit for the next place, a week of searching for a place to live, a week of labor tacked on to working 10 hours a day anyway and the stress of juggling all this. My options were to deal with a city mini government (that I had no faith in), deal with the dog owners that just added to the noise by yelling shut up at the dog after I did, move or... you guessed it the famous decon in the hamburger trick. I chose to move I dealt with all of that because people didnt think that being quiet in the day is important too.

I am sorry for your loss of your dog.

I can understand both sides of the fence. My husband also sleeps during the day, but most of the time dog barking doesn't bother him, sound sleeper I guess.

In our neighborhood 90% of the people have dogs outside during the day, either tied or in a fence. So I guess nobody complains because most are at fault themselves.

But to poison a dog is not the right course of action.
It really is hard to keep a dog quiet 100% of the time.

I guess we are really lucky where we live to have understanding neighbors.

When a strange dog gets loose and runs through our neighborhood, all the dogs in the whole neighborhood go off, barking and it sounds like a huge dog kennel or something. Then when strange dog leaves everything is quiet again. Even though these dogs don't have contact with each other, they know and communicate thru each other and warn about strangers.
Has nothing to do with this thread, but thought it is kinda cool.

Julie.

Buckshot, if you read the original post, she said that she understood their concern.

They shouldn't have called you ignorant and threatened to sue you. That's pretty unproductive.

That's horrible that someone poisoned your dog! How awful. Definitely be careful with Poe if people like that are living in your neighborhood.

They probably didn't know your parents so they probably didn't want to take a chance of retaliation for reporting your dog. I can sympathize with them on that point because you just don't know what some people will do if you get them mad.

I'm sorry your dog was poisened, even if it didn't die then it's just sad.

First off let me say that I dont condone poisoning a dog. I feel sorry for people when they lose a cherished pet.

>>You have to look though the eyes of your enemies.<<

Understood their concern? What does that mean? Does that mean making the problem go away or making these people pissed off for only another couple of weeks. I know in my case the dog just would bark a few times then be quiet for 15 minutes or so then bark a few more times. That really isnt very much barking, just enough to where I couldnt sleep. Some people sleep like grim death. I sleep well in constant noise, diesel generators, frogs, crickets or even a stereo on low, but intermitent noise like horns honking and dog barks can wake me if they are many blocks away. Even if it wasnt a sleep issue the guy just may not be dog people. There is also the possibility that the person mentioned didnt do it and some much more sinister loser sitting around in his basement wearing his grandmothers underwear did it.
