The dog downstairs has been barking nonstop since I came home from running some errands. That was almost four hours ago. The funny thing is I went out to get away from the damn dog’s barking.
Let me preface this by saying I love dogs and animals. I resent that I’m not in the position where I could have my own dog, so I just live vicariously through other people’s pets.
But this dog…It’s my landlord’s boyfriends’ dog (yes, that’s a mouthful) and is evil. No one likes her and she doesn’t like anyone either. I don’t even think her owner likes her based on how he yells at her for barking. She’s bitten me. Twice. The other dogs in the neighborhood don’t like her. She’s a problem. And all she does is bark.
No, I don’t mean the kind of normal noisy dog kind of barking. I’m talking about barking for hours nonstop like she is doing today. This isn’t unusual. She had been barking for a good two hours or so when I decided to get out of the house and away from her. She barks at everything. The toilet flushing. Someone driving down the street. The wind blowing too hard. Not hyperbole.
I’m just at my wits end since I have to hear this all day now because I’m home most of the day day since I was laid off. And I don’t know what to do any more because I’ve had countless conversations with my landlord about this problem.
