mad  As if I'm not stressed out enough my freakin neighbors called the police on us saying we weren't feeding or watering our dog.  Which I feed and water him twice a day.  The darn things a puppy and keeps knockin his water bowl over so sometimes it appears that I haven't watered him even though I have.  This is not the first time they've done this to us.  about two months ago I had just gotten my puppy, Tucker, and I didn't have a chain for it yet so I had to tie it up on my carport with a short leash.  I felt bad for him so I let him loose and my evil neighbor said the dog kept him up all night.  We live right next to a vets office, so how could that have bothered him?  And there is a motorcycle shop right behind our houses.  Any way I tried to talk to the hateful man last time and he ended up yelling and cussing at me and making me cry.  It was a huge deal over nothing.  So here they go again and I dont think this time I will walk away crying.  I think I'm going to go over there and give him what for.  They are like 50-52 and they have a dog so what the crap is their big freakin problem.  UHHHH I could explode!!! mad mad mad mad mad mad

that sucks!!! I have some bad neighbors and they can be frustrating... I just had to respond. We had one that had a party and hired wrestlers and had a ring and everything in the backyard with an announcer.... it was awful!!!
 
Why not go buy one of those small kiddie hard plastic pools and fill it up... the dog would be well watered then.... yeah   or would they complain he has too much water so he plays in it?
 
try not to stress over them.... I bet you are taking care of your puppy just fine.

Thanks Karen. Thats a great idea since I already have a plastic kiddee pool. I think I'll also get one for the food. That is sooooo funny. Thanks for making me smile at my anger. Love to you!

anytime! I had 2 big dogs I had to fill the water a lot cause one was dumb and kept playing with the bowl. He could not pick up the small kiddie pool though.... lol but the dumb dog sat in it so our other dog had to drink that water....yuck

I even considered putting a hose inside the pool then on a timer so the pool would fill up while I was at work then shut off after a enough time to refill the pool.

But then I saw the dogs drinking rain water out of a muddy hole and figured they would be ok with the water the dog sits in.

Hi there,

I am sorry you are dealing with a difficult person.  Some people are just down right angry and nothing we say or do can change how the person feels. What can you do?

If you are dealing with  common anger, then ask the person what is making him so  angry. Ask for details, on what day at what time the event took place that caused this anger?  Ask what you can do to help ease the person's mind. Let the person know that anger resolves nothing, and if there is a way, you can help, then please let you know. Pouring sugar on a fire will always burn down the flames, yet if you throw, fuel both of you will be burnt.

I hope you can reslove the puppy problem. :-)

Take care

Kitt

Ahhh, neighbours! Like that smelly cousin in law you have to put up with every christmas (even though he has eggplants growing between his toes - I'm sure of it!). Try and take the moral high ground. You know you are taking care of your puppy.

If they continue to harrass you then write a polite letter explaining your point, have it certified if you need and send it to them. Then they will look plain petty. Don't let their attitude ruin your day. Stay well and give that puppy a big hug for me!

Kitt is right sugar goes a long way....
We had mean neighbors once and I used to always smile and wave when I drove past them... they looked so shocked every time.

Kitt you always have good advice...

Rachel,

Few things upset me more than having unpleasant neighbors to deal with. Fortunately, I've got very nice ones now, but I understand your frustration.

So I was going to go over there and ream them out but I didn't. I know thats not a very Christian thing to do so instead we made it really obvious that we are taking care of our dog. We had to put him in the front yard because thats our only shady tree. We dragged our sons kiddie pool up there and filled it up for his water. And we got a giant food bowl for his food. and we also dragged our sons plastic play set up front so Tucker can lay under it for protection from the rain. Hehe, what rednecks we are. It is Kentucky, Southern Kentucky. So hopefully in a week or so we will try and go over to their house and talk with them. Nicely. I do want to get to the bottom of this spat. It's so silly to not be able to get along with your neighbors. So we'll see how that goes. Love to all!!
