We just moved into our house in June and I am convinced the neighbours must hate us! The family that moved out had two teens but no pets. We have a teen, a baby and two big old dogs. Our dogs don't bark all the time but if they see a neighbour in their own yard, it's like they are defending their country, barking in the most intimidating, loud, persistent way!
In the winter it's not terrible mainly because the neighbours take refuge in their homes. I know once spring comes we'll go back to the early morning, afternoon and late night barks.
Today, the neighbours got the added pleasure of a dog fight...a real, honest to goodness dog fight, complete with snarling, leaping dogs, and me standing in the doorway, hair all askew, wearing threadbare jammies and slippers screaming at them to stop.
Yep. They hate us.
