The beautiful meat head gym-rat couple next door just bought a puppy - chocolate lab - 12 weeks old or so.
The lovely owners have already began their M-F 9-5 work regimen while leaving the puppy crated.
I work from home a few days a week..
He barks non-stop (literally) with no more than .75 of a second in between barks, all day long. Literally, all day - with no break. I love animals but in full disclosure I want him to get kennel cough so it will dull his current high-pitched bark.
Last night he took a dump on the front walkway in front of my condo and they knocked on my door to let me know to watch out for ice on the walk way as they just hosed it off because quote, "their new puppy just took a dump". I bit my tongue this go-round, but next time Mr. Barks want to pull another stunt like yesterday...I will kindly let them know I'm upset at the proximity of my workspace to their new puppy's vocal cords.
A human being, living within the law, quietly inhabiting their dwelling, should take precedence over a dog.
p.s. good dogs are hard to come by. like women. One bad mistake in dog character judgment and you got yourself 10+ years of pain in the ass.
Hahaha, you're a douchebag.

I got my golden retriever pup when he was 9 weeks (whos now 8 months old) happy as can be and been potty trained since he was 12 weeks old. Takes a lot of time and commitment just like taking care of a baby. Thank god I had just gotten out of the marine corps and had some time to myself before college started.
