Loud amfb dogs

Ok, so I am admittedly not a big animal person. Yes, I know some people think less of me as a result. Whatever! I grew up in a house that never had less than 3 dogs, 2 cats, rabbits, hamsters, mice, fish, birds, horses and on and on and on. What that led to is OVERKILL! So there it is, I am not a huge animal lover.

I know I have posted previously about the less than ideal situation with the dog loving jacka$$'s that we moved in next door to. You know the ones with the loud golden retriever and the shrill tiny (God knows what kind of dog) thing that bark anywhere from 3am to infinity. Well, things are no better. I think my blood pressure may have gone up a good 10 points. I am sleep deprived. The latest they start barking is 8am. They wake us all up. I am at wits end. I have had it.

The neighbors themselves won't even address us anymore. All because I said to them, as their dog pooped right at my front step, and I quote "the dogs wake up my kids at nap and in the morning, now this. I am a little frustrated." Those "harsh" words have created a situation where the husband (think ex-hippy looking 65 year-old with a crappy attitude) won't even say hello. If I say hi to him he snorts at me. The wife begrudgingly will wave and say hi. WTF?

We bought that device that supposedly stops barking dogs but so far no success. They bark and they bark and they bark. I spent this evening printing off local noise ordinances with the intention of giving them to my neighbors. I am just at a loss. I know barking dogs doesn't sound like much but 24 hours a day and it makes you insane. I want to scream half of my day. I want to move out of this damn townhouse that gives me a headache most days of the week.

I don't want to bother the police, like they don't have enough to deal with... although I am almost there. What the heck am I supposed to do with this.

Ok, vent over. Needed to get that off my chest.

Ho, ho, ho, right? ;D

P.S. anyone get the "amfb"???
