Barking dogs, get rid of them!
Why the hell should I have to put up with barking dogs?
You have no choice, lol, get used to it, I don't like people talking on a cell phone doesn't necessarily mean I have to shut them up
If you had a loud stereo at 2am every night you would quickly get stopped.
there's a world of a difference, situation can be prevented by getting headphones
If you kept a pet cow on your property that went next door each night and crapped on your neighbours lawn, just how long would it be until the neighbour put it in his fridge?
same can be said about the homeless, should we do away with them too
If you keep a ROOSTER on your property it can be illegal, people won't allow the crowing.
WTF, I've had no problems with roosters, IT IS NOT ILLEGAL for a rooster to crow, the same way it isn't illegal for babies to cry
If your burglar alarm went off every night you would have to fix it.
It's a machine, machine's are stupid, what's the relation to a barking dog
So why the hell should I have to put up with your DOG?
you can always LEAVE, or move out
Why should I have to put up with your animal crapping on my sidewalk, or lawn, chasing my cat (if I had one) scaring my kids, barking and keeping us awake at night, scaring us by rushing the fence and barking when you walk pass?
Natural Instinct, what else are your kids afraid of?
If you need companionship get a freaking budgie!, Get therapy, get a partner, get a life, but get your annoying pet out of my sight.
There's always China, they cook their animals alive, ever consider moving there
If you need protection get a freaking alarm system. Buy a gun, or a baseball bat.
a gun, on the condition that if your kids end up dead don't go blame the gun manufacturers
If you are lonely, get some friends, or is a dog the only thing you can find that WILL be your friend. If thats the case then you are in worse troule than needing a dog.
I totally agree, get a beer, or better yet go to ats.com
You annoying dog keepers who put your own inadequacies and emotional immaturity in front of keeping the peace are the source of the problem.
KEEPING THE PEACE, There's a world of a difference to a dog barking and people dying
If you can't get rid of your barking dog then get the hell out of the city, buy a place far away from others, the dog will love you from it, and you have your canine companion all to your inadequate insecure selves.
Life's fair, but in this case NOT in your favor. Find something else to complain about

Great answer to the whiny dog owners who accuse others of animal abuse when they are the ones putting their dogs in unnatural uncomfortable situations.
This isn't animal sex that's being talked about
I mean really, if one were to keep a human in an unnatural, perpetual state of dependence, basically keeping him or her as a child for his/her lifetime, that would clearly constitute abuse.
Not really, think of it as adoption
But with animals, it's okay, because it serves the greater good!... or, at least, the pathetic pet owner's need for companionship unfulfilled by human society for some reason.
I don't understand.. What Greater Good are you ranting on about
It's funny how quickly they resort to making threats of violence when faced with the fact that yeah, you're dog is a smelly, misbehaving pile of s*** that has no place defecating on my property and intimidating my children.
Who's saying my dog is smelly, or that I make threats of violence

There is a simple soulotion for this.
Dogs can be silienced by surgery. Mine dosent bark, I dont need him to bark to alert me to intruders, he is a 200 pound rottwiellier and their screams as they are being torn apart will let me know they are there.
And for those advocating posioning, my protection deal with him goes both ways.
In other words I got his back too and I dont bark either.
