We have new neighbors behind us. Daddy bought his son a house. Not ever good in my experience when you don't have to earn your house. Son has a dog. The dog has been whining and yelping since they moved in yesterday afternoon. husband has talked to the owner twice over the fence but has failed to mention that they should shut the dog up. I don't believe in outside dogs or dogs that are locked in garages. If you don't want another active member of the family, don't get a dog. I am in about as p-poor a mood as I have been in since Christmas. No one actually wants me to go talk to the people. But I could spit nails at husband for talking to these people twice today and not saying "With all that whining and barking your dog seems like he's a little anxious and lonely. Maybe you could keep him in the house with you so that he can calm down and be quieter." It would be much better than if I have to go over and say something. Much. Better.
