Mine does. I have two neighbors in the complex who are dog owners. Both do nothing to control the beasts.
Every morning I get up to pee. I am upstairs, and the offending dog owner is downstairs and back, not directly below me. Yet each morning I can
clearly hear the yap yap yap yap yap. I finally figured out the owner must lock it in the bathroom! Also, there is nothing wrong with muzzling a
yapper when you take it outside. Four or five tomes a day as I sit in my livingroom I am jarred by the neighbor walking the yapping beast, and it does
not shut up!
The other dog owner, same deal, yapper, but worse, this dog owner will lock the dog on the porch (which is visible from my balcony) and one day we
noticed the dog pee on the porch then drink its own pee. But that dog is not as much of a yapper as the other one.
Why do people move in to multi units, with pets, and then refuse to be a good neighbor about it?
I dont care if you keep a pet, but a ten dollar muzzle for walks is just being a good neighbor. It is NOT dog abuse to muzzle a pet for a walk. The
people here are dog fanatics, our banks give out dog bones, (thats another debate).
There is nothing more odious that a bad dog owner, who refuses to train their dog.
And dog owners, please be aware, not all of us like dogs. I had bad experiences with dogs as a child, and am highly allergic to them as well. I simply
dont like them, and it doesnt make me bad, it makes me not amused with lil Rovers antics.
