Life in Suburbia...can suck sometimes

Posted December 8, 2012

I guess you can call Fremont Suburbia...I live in a nice neighborhood - we all get along, but my next door neighbor on one side has 'dog parties' where she invites several friends with dogs and they all come over and bark. Anyone who knows me knows what a noise phobe I am...and barking dogs is one of my least favorite sounds.

Last evening, she had one of these gatherings, and I'm glad she gave us a heads up, but still, the yapping, the barking had my cats on high alert, and I just kept turning the TV volume up...

I'm not sure why anyone would have a bunch of dogs over - they are territorial by nature and isn't that inviting trouble? Luckily, the event didn't go much past 9pm - either that or the TV was effectively drowning it out...but it was like there was a kennel next door.

I guess I just don't get dog people...I couldn't imagine taking my cats to a friend's house for a cat party...
