I will put up with a lot and do practically anything to get along with my neighbors! There are always some in every neighborhood who are either crazy, totally unreasonable, or just looking for something to fight about. Years ago, in another neighborhood, I had a bad experience with some neighbors, and it never ends well. So often, dogs or cats are the catalysts and those arguments frequently escalate way out of control. Our bad neighbor chained her dogs outside all day with no water...yada yada yada...Ended up, my next door neighbor stole the little dog--the Akita ended up nearly taking off the arm of the vet doing a house call. The bad neighbors were so nasty--well, I guess anyone who would chain their dogs up in the side yard in Dallas in the summer with no water or human contact, would certainly be capable of being nasty to neighbors!
I had a cat problem in this neighborhood too, Toni @BodiesMom. Cats across the street came over to my flowerbeds to pee. The ammonia smell by my front door was awful and they killed a couple of shrubs. We just lived with that, rather than complain to the neighbors.
I can't imagine what I would do if a neighbor shot my dog in their yard!! Probably move!
