So some of you may remember that I have neighbors with very LOUD dogs. (We haven't had any problems lately) A few months ago, when the puppy would not stop barking, I went out and yelled at my neighbor, saying that my husband slept during the day, and her dogs never shut up, and if she were a good pet owner and actually paid attention to her animals, they wouldn't bark.
I even called animal control one day, and they went over and spoke to her.
WELL, today my husband and I went to go and get registration papers from the elementary school for my daughter. We were talking to the lady at the desk finding out about the open house and the teachers and what not, and she asked where we live. We told her, and she said "oh my gosh, IM YOUR NEIGHBOR. The one with the loud dogs"
I nearly fell on the floor. You would think I would have recognized her, but I have never seen her up close. Just over the fence. SO, I introduced my husband and we all shook hands. I found out she put one of those collars on the puppy to stop it from barking, but I was SO embarrassed.
I will never, ever yell at anyone again! The thing that kills me is she was totally nice. Although I don't know if she was being nice because she was at work and she had to, or if all this dog business is under the bridge. I was thinking of maybe going and buying one of those big buckets of doggie treats and tieing a big red bow around it and leaving it on her porch. I am still sick to my stomach. I feel horrible.
