Hello Neighbor

Jasmine,

Why do some dog get upset and growl at their next door neighbors?

from, Susan

Susan,

Hey, why do you humans ignore or not talk with your human neighbors? You know, sometimes they just get under your skin, and you just don’t click with them. My next door neighbors are a couple of little shit-zoos. Since we have a bit fence between us, we never get together, but we talk to each other a lot. Then after a few minutes, one of our human owners will tell us to quit barking. I feel like telling the humans to just get a grip, but I don’t.

I have a couple neighbors, one is a little white dog, don’t know what breed he is, but about a third my size. Every time we meet on a walk, it is the same thing, he jumps up on me, yaps constantly, and tries to bite my ears. Well, someone has to be the adult, so I just stand there and let him. We get along pretty well actually. When I can, we play around a bit.

Then there is this other dog on my walk that sometimes I see. He walks with his nose up in the air and thinks his stuff just doesn’t stink. Grrrrr he drives me nuts. I mean, give me a break, we could be friends, but no, he has to try to show his human he is “Superdog” or some dumb thing. Every time I see him, I get upset, and the fir stands up on the back of my neck.

I am a three year old German Shepherd from South Georgia.  I don’t really have a favorite toy because my favorite things are sleeping and getting petted on the head. Although if I do get up some energy I will admit that I love getting into the trash to look for napkins.

My brother Teddy is lots of fun to play with, plus he usually takes the blame for my chewing.  I really like him for that!  I love to bark a lot; sometimes my humans do not appreciate that so much.  I am SUPER special because I am a white German Shepherd and that is not so common I hear.
