Remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
I don't know how old I was when I was one.
Quote:The dog needs to work off some energy everyday and an 80yr old owner probably can,t walk it. Ask the owner if you can walk the dog when you are able, you will be doing both of them a favor and geting some exercise for you too. After a good walk the dog should settle down.Rex

Folks, let's not forget that the owner of the dog in question here is an elderly woman in her 80's who recently lost her husband and whose daughter got her the dog for companionship. Personally, I'd say the poor woman has enough problems - this dog may be a major factor in keeping her happy and comforted. The dog may be annoying to the OP but it also may be a lifeline to the new widow. A little compassion here could go a long way.
Quote: Also, I'd talk to the lady next door, you might find out she doesn't want the dog either....THEN I'd definitely talk with the daughter.

Quote: why she has the dog, how she feels about it, what the daughter thinks about it - all of that is none of the neighbor's d*** business.
Quote: that the OP is outside, moving about, in the dark. Frankly, I wouldn't expect the dog NOT to bark under these conditions. To him, the OP might be a prowler.

Quote:When I was a kid, we had a neighbor who had 3 big mutt dogs that loved to bark at night. My dad "trained" those dogs to keep quiet. After some training, they'd hear our back door handle turn and run away and give us some hours of quiet.
