Yappy dogs annoy me. And so do their owners. How on earth do you put up with a dog that barks it's head off when someone comes anywhere near it? The slightest thing will set it off. There is one particular dog that I pass on my way to work. Until it became light at that time of the morning the dog didn't get excited by my presence. Now is a different story. I've got a good mind to walk past the house a few times as soon as it is light so that he annoys the heck out of his owners. And I have heard them yell at him to be quiet. I am a bit of a vindictive sod at times.
The dog in question is some sort of poodle. I especially hate poodles. Women thinking that they are smarter than you is bad enough, along with cats having the same idea, but a small curly-haired dog? C'mon, really?
On another note we were searching online for a dog if one was available from a dog pound and stumbled across a beagle X. Gave the lady a call after discovering that she still had him and talked about it. She'll send some photos and we'll decide if it's worth having a look. The dog appears to be a mixture of beagle and german shepherd. Miky only wants a purebred. Let me know if you hear of a any (local) beagles.
