Let me begin this by saying we like dogs, we don't currently have one, but through the years we've had a number of them. All the dogs we've had were of a good size, German Shepherds, English Sheepdogs, Lab mixes. We're not small dog people, when we have a dog we want a DOG.
Our next door neighbor has been a good neighbor, she works long hours and is seldomly home and when she's home she's inside. In other words a really quiet neighbor. That is until she decided that though she's seldomly at home she needed a dog, not a good sized dog (she had one of those when we first moved here a golden retriever named Buck---he was wonderful- he use to go walking with us every morning), no, she got some yippy, little, hairy monster that she throws out the back a couple of times a day and at night----usually around 2am--- and all he does is sit out there and bark his little head off. We hate him and it makes me wonder about our neighbor. Like I said, she's gone all day till well into the evening and the dog is in the house doing, well, you know what he's doing, that's why he barks when she puts him out---he doesn't need to go outside he's already done.
Why would you want a dog if you were never home to enjoy it? She owns her own business she could take him to work with her, but she doesn't, we've seen her leave in the morning after she's put him outside for his morning bark.
You use to be one of our favorite neighbors, not so much any more.
