I don't know if I just attract stupid neighbors or what, but yet again, we've got a neighbor who doesn't know how to take care of pets. At my parents' house, their neighbors are always losing their animals...they've gone through about 10 in the past 2 years or so. Then a few months ago, someone lived next to us (at Daniel's house) and they abandoned their beautiful Malamut and she had puppies. The neighborhood got the ASPCA on those people and found homes for Mama and her babies. But now we have a whole crew of idiots who are in and out of the house all the time, all day, and they keep their lab puppy chained on an estimated 3 foot long chain attached to his little doghouse waaaay far from food or water and qute someways from the house, when they could just close the gate, let him have his freedom, and get off their lazy asses when they drive up to open the gate so they can get in. Instead they drive up to their porch. Aaauuuuggghhh. So the puppy's been barking, yelping, howling, and whining pretty much nonstop for a good 4 and a half hours. Poor puppy.
