Gahhhh!

We had a big problem with out neighbors a long time ago, they complained our air con was too loud (after living with it with no complaint for about 4 years) so we had to get up on the roof and build a little foam house around it. But no, still too loud, so we had to get rid of it, pull ALL the silver tube stuff out from inside our roof, etc, and now only have one wall mounted unit in the lounge room.

Well, years passed, no worries. Then we get home yesterday and they put a note in our letterbox. "dog is barking during night and keeping us awak early mornings. Please prevent this from happening" Aargh! We LIVE in the house, and we don't hear them barking. They sleep in the laundry which is right across the hall from my parents bedroom, my dad is a superlight sleeper and he DOESNT HEAR THEM BARK. The only time they bark, ever, is 1. When the puppies play with our old dog Chloe, and she barks and growls at them, but this is mostly inside and during the afternoon. 2. When something startles Charlie, like someone he doesn't know entering our yard or a stray dog getting too close to our yard.

Also, Dad told me that a few years ago she complained about the neighbour on her other side's dogs. He has little terriers, always has. Apparently a little while after she complained, his dogs went 'missing' and no one ever knew what happened to them.

Gah, my dad is so furious, and so am I... If anything happens to our dogs (the old one, Chloe, or our two new pups)... My dad would be ropeable. And he never gets angry.

He wrote on the bottom of the note "They don't bark at night. You must be dreaming" which was a lot more polite than what he wanted to say. I just wonder what we do from here...I kind of want to let her know that we will be watching our dogs very carefully, btu I also dont' want to acuse her of doing something or her other neighbours dogs... that would just give her fuel. If she reports this to some kind of authority, how can we prove that the dogs don't bark at ngiht? I mean it could be a dog from any of about 4 houses. We called our back neighbour and he confirmed that he doesn't hear them barking at night. I'm just worried that this vindictive woman will get our dogs taken away ro disciplined for no reason... Aargh!

Thanks guys! Unfortunately we wrote on the note and gave it back before we had thought of photocopying it... Which is a bummer. But we will be sure to keep any furthur 'correspondance..."
