Have I mentioned that there are lots of stray dogs? They have no owners, therefore no one to care for them, therefore no one who’ll neuter or spay them, therefore they breed and produce more stray dogs also with no one to care for them. There are a lot of these dogs in our neighborhood.
Never mind that. There are a lot of these dogs everywhere. Cats, too, but the dogs are much more noticeable.
As a result, sometimes garbage, left for the garbagemen to pick up, will be gone through less than 15 minutes after it’s put out. Another result is barking and baying.
And last night that’s exactly what they did. At around 2 or 3 in the morning. And it seemed like it lasted for hours. In reality, it was probably only an hour and a half or so, but it seemed so much longer.
Although, truth be told, it might not have been a stray doing all that barking and baying. It may have actually been one that is owned – the sound came from the same place all night – not the sound of an unhappy or hungry dog wandering the streets in search of companionship or a free dinner.
Anyway. Fahim’s comment this morning as he’s leaving to go to work: "If I find that dog that was barking all night, I’m gonna shoot it." This coming from a man who doesn’t believe in killing spiders because they’re beneficial creatures, but will instead set them free outside.
Today, I’m working some more on catching my blog up to date and also adding in those links back in September or October where I gumped them up. I’ll also give that same info here so you, dear reader, don’t have to go hunting for them. Let me see, where to start?
