I have taken down the previous posting. I'm sorry that I offended some people. Please know that I really do love animals. I wouldn't shoot my neighbor's dogs. As a commenter posted, it's not their fault and I know that. Both are good dogs and it breaks my heart to see what I would call abused and neglected happen to them. If I was capable of adopting "Lucky" I would. I don't have the health or the ability to care for him.
You also have to know that I live rurally. There is no animal control or a humane society to make a report. The police figure they have better things to do than make my neighbors take care of their animals. Most of the people here are farmers and hunt all owning guns. It's how they feed their families beside farming. My frustrations are not meant for posting about anyone's feelings on gun control either. There are plenty of forums to argue over that topic.
I don't own a gun (BB or otherwise) and don't plan on it. I don't hunt nor feel the need for a gun. Guns don't solve problems. They just create more.
I've put up with "Lucky" for two years barking across the street day and night. All of the neighbors are fed up but there isn't really anything they can do. Now that "Lucky" is right next to my window it's unbearable. Add in the other dog crapping in my yard and barking along with "Lucky" when he's outside, I lost my cool today.
For anyone that deals with dogs that bark all day/night I'm sure you understand the frustration of not really being able to do anything.
Tomorrow I'll make a formal complaint (not that it will do any good) and let it go from there. I promise there will be no shooting of any dogs.
I was shocked when the husband told me it was okay to shoot "Lucky". I wish there was a way to make this work out better for the sanity of the dogs and all of us neighors that are fed up. I really wish they would find a home for both out in the country where they can be loved and appreciated. I don't get why people have animals and then refuse to care for them and let them bark all day/night.
I apologize for coming across as heartless or having people think I would actually shoot the dogs.
