I've heard an amazing amount of neighbor's barking dog stories – even had one of my own. I understand and feel the pain of it, the frustration of it, and the just plain helplessness of it.
For those of you who've never dealt with this particular situation, I'm sorry, but it's just not as simple as asking your neighbor to stop their dogs' barking. It's a rare neighbor that listens to a grievance and fixes it. For those of you who do, thank you!
That's why I was happy to see this story from the UK. They take dog barking seriously as one woman found out.
Her dog would bark incessantly, causing a lot of disturbances and angst with neighbors. What is incessantly really mean?
