Yappy little bitch...

We have a chi-hua-hua next door. It is the poster child of the yappy, vile, neurotic, inbred little monsters that they're so famous for being. It barks. All day. I cannot exaggerate sufficiently to express how often it barks. It's non-stop, and a bit of a shrill howl. It does this at anything that moves outside from the moment it's awake to the moment it falls asleep. The neighbors will lock it upstairs in it's bedroom when they're downstairs eating, and I only noticed this recently because they've begun to open their windows, which really gives me a new perspective on how annoying and LOUD this little shit dog is. I actually WOKE UP to the sound through my double pane windows.

On my way to the S4 this morning, I saw the neighbor on the opposite side of this one (We live in townhouses) and I pointed backwards at the little shit, doing it's usual barkfest, and I said "That's all it does. Is bark. All the time." and she snorts, shaking her head and muttering "Tell me about it."

So, I've decided intervention is necessary.

Oh I could call the police, the humane society, I could contact the home owners association (Galen is on the board after all) but in all my experience with problems like this, there really is nothing you can do that'll accomplish anything. Besides maybe kill it. But. We're not at that point yet.

No, instead.. I've decided on an alternative.

I am going to say the nastiest, most insulting and sarcastic remark I can think of the next time I see these neighbors. Something along the lines of "Hey I just wanted to let you know that there is NOTHING quite as wonderful as waking up to the sound of your shitty little dog barking it's head off every single day. Just thought I'd let you know that, so have a nice fucking day."

I think I'll feel a lot better after saying this, and it will allow my angry stares at them to carry a more prominant message in the future, every single time I see it outside or otherwise trying to get through the windows presumably to attack me.

And on the off chance that it gets free of it's leash and runs up to me? ... I'll make it swift and painless. I won't be waiting for it to bite me.

I suppose asking them nicely would be a better ramp-up.

It will be tough though because they seem so vacuous.

I'm confident they won't do anything besides give me the deer caught in the headlights stare. I hear them shushing the dog every now and then, and it consists of "Prince, SSHHHH" and it doesn't stop at all and they give up without so much as a second thought. Yes, it's name is Prince.

*so annoyed at another K9*

I mean, in a way I'm thankful that this situation is as bad as it is, because at least in this case it isn't an issue of a dog that, say, barks only when the owners are gone. Or.. only at night for a couple of hours.

This situation is rather unique in that .. it never stops. I was outside vacuuming my car the other day and washing it and galens car. Think I worked on them for about 4 hours total, and it never stopped even once. The biggest surprise I found after that was the fact that the were home during all this, just ignoring it 100%.

It won't be hard convincing authorities or anyone for that matter that this problem needs to be delt with. Just stand outside and watch.

As I said I said in the past, I'm not an advocate of using e-collars on dogs as training methods. (I know, ironic given that I've got one myself) but I've got to say though, that one anti-bark collar on that dog would solve this problem in minutes. Maybe I should suggest that.
