Annoying Neighbors

I've had it. Since we have moved in to our house we have put up with our backyard neighbor's dogs. They leave them outside during the night, no matter the weather. Whatever. The problem is that more nights than not these darn dogs bark and howl. One dog is a little yelper and the other dog is an old hound. And together they are infuriating. The problem is that the owners do nothing about it. They have kids, do their kids not wake up from the barking dogs? Last night it was SO bad and loud that I got up and turned on the porch light and went outside. I was THISCLOSE to going to their house at 1:30 in the morning. If they can wake my house up, why can't I wake theirs up? They also turned on their back porch light but did not go outside! After half an hour Wade got up and said he saw them put food out for their dogs to quiet them. Those dogs were at it for an hour!!! I want to do something about it instead of just being a complainer. Do I go over there, leave a note in their mailbox, or file a complaint with the police so hopefully they get enough complaints and have to do something?

I don't hate dogs or animals. I just hate inconsiderate neighbors. If those were your animals waking up the neighborhood in the middle of the night, numerous times, wouldn't you do something about it? Barking and howling dogs in the middle of the night is super annoying, but I'm extra sensitive to it right now because I need my sleep. If it's not Whitney or Wade waking me up, it's these dogs. It's always something. And the dogs wake up Whitney, who is not my super sleeper anymore, but that's another story.


  1. I think I would call the cops!! That is ridiculous and obviously they know they are bothering you if they came out and fed them.

  2. Yeah Jack, I've told Wade many a times to grab that pellet gun. It even has a silencer on it!
