I got rid of my dog today.
My neighbour sent three complaints to the City complaining Apollo was barking incessantly.
It’s an odd claim to make because he rarely barked. When he did bark, it was usually a single bark. On the occasion it was more than once, each bark was about 30 seconds to a minute apart.
I have heard incessant barking, and Apollo’s barking was not it, not by a long shot.
When the City informed us today they were issuing us a $100 fine, we decided to take him to the pound. We can’t afford to pay $100 regularly because Apollo’s barking echoes in our neighbour’s head.
We got Apollo to keep people out of our yard. Prior to getting him last fall, several persons used our yard as a thoroughfare to get to and from the alley. We’ve had things stolen from our yard, including clothes from the clothesline.
I guess it’s all moot now though.
