I only take 1 mg Klonopin every night, probably less than that most nights.
That's 1 mg Klonopin or less every day. That's not much at all. That's not
why the barking bothers me. It's because I hear it & can't get back to sleep.

Who are you trying to kid, Karen? That's a benzo habit, and you're a
benzo head. It's no wonder you're mad at your neighbor.
If you're husband doesn't partake, what's his opinion of the pills?
I bought one of those electronic things that only dogs can hear and set it
in a tree between the houses. A couple of hours later the dog stopped
barking and I haven't heard from it since. I also got a battery powered one
to carry in my pocket when walking and riding. Dogs stay at least 20 feet
You can bet they are. More and more people are being attacked and killed by
dogs every year. You just never know when the neighborhood dog will
suddenly take a notion that you are prey and just tear you all up.
Yes,once the "alpha dog"(owner) is not around,then the behavior can change.
So many dog owners claim "their dog is not like that around their
family",that's because they are around,when they *aren't* around,the dog's
behavior changes.(around strangers)
But don't forget that OP hasn't even informed the neighbor that the barking
disturbs her. Maybe the neighbor thinks everyone is up at 6:30. Maybe the
idea that Fido's barking might disturb someone hasn't occurred to the
neighbor. Who knows? The fact is that OP's complaint and this entire
thread is a tempest in a tea pot until such time as she talks to neighbor
and neighbor tells her to take a hike.
If a neighbor's dog barks and I'm not home I am not disturbed. Same if the
neighbor kids yell and scream. If I am home, both disturb me. So does my
bubba neighbor's freaking airboat. Especially the airboat.

You *may* have a point. But only because of some doubt that the presence of a
police car one such morning may *possibly* not have had to do with the dog
barking. Other than that doubt which may prevent the likely conclusion that the
neighbor *has* been told that her dog is bothering people, what we have is the
usual neighbor's conundrum - does she talk to the neighbor, and possibly resolve
the issue amicably? Or does she talk to the neighbor, and possibly be told
"fuck you" and be blamed henceforth and maybe also in retrospect for the police
call, anything that possibly may happen to the dog, and even any garbage which
may blow into the neighbor's yard. I agree with you part way, and understand
the sentiment that things should and could be handled if people would just
*talk* to each other. But the way things are IRL, there's a real risk in
talking to a neighbor about something like that. So what should Karen do?
Beats me - she has a better feel for what kind of person lives next door than
any of us.
From here in quad-running and snowmobile land, I hear ya.
This post proves that I'm right cause you're a total idiot,
and completely moronic. I know that I'm right cause I'd
never call someone an "ad hominem" unless I really knew he
was one of them hominems. I mean, you can carry name calling
(we learned about Ad Hom arguments in school, and I just
wanted to try one out. I so seldom use ad hom arguments.
Only on total losers. Sorry, it slipped. But it feels so
good once in awhile.)
He got it from *you*. *You* put it out on the internet for the entire world to
Just do a Google search on yourself, like this:
Good heavens, woman! What were you thinking?
Might be. I had figured on it being her date of birth, until I saw one of the
posts in which she referred to her age (suggesting a birth year in the early
Or perhaps it's descriptive of, say, a personal preference. (But what's "84"?)
