THE BARKING DOG FROM HELL

Suburban homeowner arrested for barking dog
-click here for story-This link is to a news story that is all too common in suburban America; the barking dog that never shuts up, and the owner who either doesn't care, or isn't even there. In the news story, a dog owner is actually arrested for the noisy inconvenience, but out here in the real world all that usually happens is people like you and me lose some sleep; often lying there wishing the dog owner could be arrested. And perhaps water-boarded.
My own next door neighbors, whom I like to call Perfect Neighbor Jeff and Perfect Neighbor Nancy, have a wiener dog that tends to yap if left on its own. Luckily, I had to endure only one period of 'yappidge extremidge' before Jeff and Nancy, being Perfect Neighbors, put that dog down. No, just kidding; they take that wiener dog with them on vacation now, which is better for everyone, including their short, fur-lined yap-meister, who, from the sound of his howls, is not a fan of being lonely.
And for those of you stuck with a noisy mutt in the neighborhood? Bond with your other neighbors, pitch in together and hire a cheap lawyer, and sue, sue, sue. It is the American Suburban Way, even if they seem to overlook the possibility in the article, which I hope you enjoy.
