I gotta vent a little.. bear with me. I live in town (unfortunately) but I do not have the room for a dog. Trust me, if I did, I would have another dog in a heartbeat. But, at least I recognize that I cannot afford a dog all the room and attention that they deserve. The neighbor behind me just got a neat looking black spaniel puppy. The last few days when I got home from work, that poor thing is bawling to beat the band. Yesterday, I walked over to see what the problem is and heres the deal... they have that thing tighed to the swingset with about a 10 ft. lead! Of course, that lead is wound around the base of the swingset so that that dog is essentially immobile. Guess he's been that way since they left for work this morning and will be until they get home at 5pm or whenever. Least they put a water bowl out for him but it is turned over and prolly has been since early this morning. hearing that poor thing squall like that is like fingernails on the blackboard for me! Should I confront them or just call animal control?? gosh.. I hate that.
