This Week's Barking News Roundup - 03/22/13

Slow news week last week. Hence, no Barking News Roundup. But don't think for a minute that peace and quiet have broken out. Because the Roundup is back.

Barking Dog Log' Triggered following Complaint

Excerpt: The complainant, a resident of [Non-Stop Noise Assault] Lane, must keep up the 14-day log in order for police to assess a fine for the owner of three dogs nearby.

Tip: This story is open for comments.

My favorite: "
No one wants to listen to three dogs barking on a regular basis, sad that the responsibility falls on the neighbor to prove it. Furthermore, the dog owners must be aware of the situation, why don't they correct it?"

From the TWBNR Advice Column Department, we have these two questions:

I have a new neighbour directly behind me who has a large dog who is left outside all the time--in a completely paved in backyard--even in the cold weather we've been having. Consequently it barks a lot, in fact it's barking right now. I was so fed up with it at one point last week that I knocked on the owner's door at 12:30 in the morning to ask him to let his dog in the house, or at least get it to be quiet.

Tip: This discussion is open for comments. Follow the above link to add yours.

Yesterday I had my windows opened and had to listen to that [bleep] for 4 hours straight, with windows closed I can still can hear the [bleeper].

Tip: Another discussion that's just itchin' for your comments. You know what to do.

  1. for dogs that are left outside all or most of the time, the onus should be on the dog owner to prove that it does NOT bark.
