The Continuing Saga of Our Next Door Neighbors…
In case you were wondering where we are at, following the last blog regarding calling animal control…
A few days later, when I arrived home from work, Mrs. Neighbor came out of her house and followed me from my car to the mailbox (because who doesn’t want to be bombarded by someone the moment you arrive home?). She furiously apologized for her poorly behaved dog and told me he had been her mother’s.
Then, she proceeded to bawl. Not tear up, BAWL.
Mrs. Neighbor told me all about her mother, who of course I never met and how she had “recently” died. Now while I am extremely sorry for her loss, why in the world has this been affecting myself and Mr. Cabbage for months now?
She told me they had bought the worst of the four dogs a collar to shock him, but it was hurting him and she thought burning fur off of his neck. So they removed it, and the barking which had mostly subsided for a bit was back in full swing.
Still crying she told me they were very sorry and would try to solve the problem soon.
