Half the reason we picked to live here was the dog friendliness of the neighbours. On one side, they have 2 dogs. Granted they bark too much when the owners are away but they are good neighbours. On the other side was this fantastic older couple, no pets but they loved Elliot and loved it when he came to visit them. They talked to the dogs over the fence and never complained. Hearing them say "you have 4 of them, they will bark, its fine" was the nicest thing I've heard in a while. The older couple moved out a few weeks ago and a young couple moved in. Was really hoping they'd be good neigbours aswell. They even brought a dog, so I thought great, dog people. No, havn't met the girl yet but the guy is so irritable, he's already had a shot at us twice for trivial things and he turns up thismorning telling us Sophie was barking all night (from 3am apparently but I didn't go to bed till 4am so he's lying already) Yes Soph was probably making noise from early thismorning, she was outside and its getting cold. I wrapped her up in her blanjet but she refused to stay in it last night. We tried to put her in the house last night but she has to get up to toilet o often its not worth it. Her new coat gets here next week hopefully. I thought I could deal with this guy so long as he doesn't mess with our dogs, but if they're annoying him, I don't trust him not to do something. My sister answered the door thismorning and said he kept saying things like "yeah that dogs real annoying, you've gotta get rid of it or council will come take it away" This is all while we have to deal with his dog making noises like its in agony all day because they don't have a fence and its tied up all day. We've been ignoring it, hoping it would settle in because its only been here a couple of weeks. And really... he better not call council, his dog has the wrong shaped head to be living in this state. Sorry for the rant. I'm really worried. But atleast if council gets called they'll just make all neighbours do a log of when each others dogs bark. Which is always when their owners are away lol. Ours can't bark trhat much, they spend and average of 2-3 hours a day, 3 days a week alone.
