Dogs and Neighbors .....

We have lived in our home for over 35 years. We have always had at lease 1 dogs in the home. at current rate we have a houseful ranging from small to large breeds. Our dogs are laid back and friendly. We have a 6 foot privacy fence around our yard so we can "let the dogs out".

We have lived in our home for over 35 years. We have always had at lease 1 dogs in the home. at current rate we have a houseful ranging from small to large breeds. Our dogs are laid back and friendly. We have a 6 foot privacy fence around our yard so we can "let the dogs out". In the last month, our neighbors next door (with an INSAINLY close house - builder developed 2 houses on one lot) has decided to tell us that we need to change our routine in the mornings because our dogs wake them up in the morning. Again we have lived in our home for 35 + years and have been waking up at 5:30am for the same amount of time. When they moved in 5+ years ago - we had all of our dogs. We get up at 5:30am and let the dogs out. All of our pets are vetted and licensed. they are not out for long - and we call them in should they bark. We have noticed a vermin problem in the area ... but is this a good reason that we should have to stop allowing our dogs in our backyard - or is the neighbor being unreasonable? We have tried talking things out, but al they seem to want is for us to change our habits ...

  • I don't particularly care for dogs either but they make folks happy.

  • OMG! i don't know how i could have forgotten about the rooster. so now i live in dunning (as mentioned, big mistake). anyway, we are sailing along, our neighbors are fine we really don't care about the crazy german shepherd that is let out at 6:30 am barking it's head...

    OMG! i don't know how i could have forgotten about the rooster. so now i live in dunning (as mentioned, big mistake). anyway, we are sailing along, our neighbors are fine we really don't care about the crazy german shepherd that is let out at 6:30 am barking it's head off or the rotty next door who is left out all night to play with empty milk cartons and other plastic/metal "toys" at 2 or 3am - even though it does wake us. but the cherry on the cake/sundae is when one of our neighbor's sons brought home a g*d d@mn rooster. at least dogs can be shooshed and taken in but you can't do that with a rooster at 5:00am. it was a daily occurrence which p*ssed us off especially since it was summer vacay and we were a self employed (didn't have to be up at the butt crack of dawn) family. thankfully it lasted about 3 weeks until - well.......i think they ate him. buh bye rooster.

Mandatory Water Meter?

So I just got an orange tag on my door from Professional Meters Inc saying I have to allow them to install a water meter or experience POSSIBLE water service termination..?
I can't find anything online about this other than what is online by the company, but it seems weird to me because the notice says they have been trying to reach me but this is the first I have heard of it.

I think I want it to be false and a scam but I can't tell. Anybody?...

  • Right now I believe getting a water meter is still free to the property owner. Might not always be the case.

  • If you are thinking about a meter, call the city, as you get free rain barrell or other options. You will probably save money and for seven years you are guaranteed not to pay a higher bill then if you didn't have meter.
