    Barking dogs are a nuisance, but obviously you can’t go around beating them. However, there should be a law allowing people to beat dog owners who do nothing about it.

    My dogs had that problem I simply muzzeled them. They have muzzels that are breathable for the dog and the dog can drank water. You should not let your dogs bark and bark. They were not barking for a reason. Or, simply bring the dog in for a while.

    Honey is the granddaughter of the famous Sadie, a well known German Shepard actress. Here’s her imdb profile….. . Hopefully Honey is alright, she’s the last surviving offspring of Sadie and the bloodline dies with her.

    This story is just another example of our society gone wild and crazy. Did this neighbor ever try and walk over to talk with the owner andhis concern for the nuisance? Doesn’t seem so. I am a dog owner and I despise chronic barking myself but ………… dang! This man has pent up feelings that exploded like a grenade on that poor dog. I pray the dog will be fine and the disgusting HUMAN gets the book thrown at him. Get some Lexapro buddy!
