Neglected dogs leave neighbors barking mad

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My wife and I have lived in a quiet neighborhood for 22 years.

Four months ago, new neighbors moved in.

We endured three months of noisy renovations, construction, tree removals, etc. before they moved in.

Over the last month their two dogs have been left outside barking at 6 a.m., and then barking for 90 minutes at 6 p.m., and finally from 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

This was the final straw. I texted them three times and told them this was unacceptable, and finally that I would be calling the police (I didn't call).

They texted back the next day that they were away, and that we would discuss the situation.

They came back and said that their daughter was home and that their dogs were in the house the whole time. They said it wasn't their dogs barking.

We got a denial, and no apologies were offered.

Now they have the nerve to be mad at us. They aren't talking to us.

Any suggestions?
