I am a wife and stay at home mom to two darling girls, Whitney and Ellison. We are an active duty Army family constantly on the move. we currently reside in Iowa closer to our families. Using the blog to document our lives and a few of my thoughts!
Our neighbor's dogs had another episode last night. After ten minutes of barking I dug out the phone book and started looking up the number for the Waynesville police. Whitney was awake at this point and crying, so I decided after I got her back down that if the dogs were still barking I would call the police. Now I am one PO'd mama. After about 40 minutes with Whitney the dogs were still barking so I called the cops. I went back to bed but after a few minutes I was curious as to how long it would take for them to show up, so I set up shop at our back door. Within minutes they were there, and thank goodness the dogs were still barking. I would have felt pretty stupid if they had stopped by the time they got there. I was so excited that I finally did something about it that I couldn't fall asleep again. Oh well, I'll give up a night of sleep for one small victory. You may be thinking that I should have been a bit more neighborly and said something to them personally, but I am thinking they should be a bit more neighborly and control their dogs. 5-10 minutes of barking, whatever, after half an hour, no way. I call the cops. And that's what I have to say about that. I am THAT neighbor now!
