no one has complained about the dogs. as in the example above, they were concerned for their safety and well-being. they described frightening instances of interactions with the previous owner's dogs. the dogs were vicious and once trapped the english teacher with her daughter in the car in their driveway. apparently they escaped frequently. craziness. the dogs have a dog friend behind us name isabella (izzie) that barks as much as they do. nary a negative word has been exchanged with any of my neighbors since we moved here. the first night we spent was dre's 30th birthday, when she and josh became engaged, was 21Jul2010. that's just so perfectly adorable, you can't help but go "ahhh", or is it "awww"? :)
now when the dogs bark, i don't worry nearly as much. i stop them because i want to be polite, not from fear of litigation. so awesome.
