oh dear, milking is going to come so early in the morning

Say you have a dog, maybe a littleish dog, with dingy white curly fur, poodle-esque in shape and size.  But these details don't matter; we don't really care what the dog looks like, as its appearance is separate and distinct from the issue at hand.  Say that dog is a barker.  We don't know (or care) how much he barks while he's in the house, but we know he barks when he's outside.  Maybe he barks at oh, six o'clock in the morning.  He barks quite a bit.  He does it again around ten-thirty at night.  Another outburst lasting a few minutes.  Are you with me so far?  Good.  Because listen up, America:

You've got to stop this.  I can't adequately quantify for you how thoroughly you are blowing it.  Shut that dog's mouth.  Maybe you're thinking, if you even think about it at all, "it's not that bad."  But actually, yes.  It is that bad, and you suck as a human being.  If I put my children in public in a situation when quiet can reasonably be expected, and they make incessant loud noise to the point where they are disrupting the peace, then I fully expect to be glared at and reprimanded by the people around me, and rightly so, because if that happens I am doing a crappy job and need to be made aware that there are societal consequences for my behavior.  It is the same with dogs.  You make that dog be quiet, or take it to someone who can.  Show some respect for your neighbors and your dog by raising it correctly.  Grow up. 

Either that or be shunned.

I thought you lived in the country?! No one in a rural area should have a dog such as you described! Sorry you are having this trouble. It is infuriating, isn't it?

You are so funny! I dare you to say it to their faces. They need to hear it.

Have you ever seen the movie "bag it"? (This question is completely unrelated). I watched it with my kids and it totally made one of them cry. I feel so angry to once again find out there are millions being thrown into a marketing campaign teaching wrong principles (i.e. plastic bags are environmentally friendly) just so someone can get rich.

My dog barks every time he goes out the door. He's a terrier and he thinks it's his job to clear the yard of varmints. I would put him on his choke collar and walk him every time he needs to go out to prevent this, but frankly I don't want to. I hope we can still be friends.

Tori. Why are you letting the terrorists win?

If your dog is cute then you are granted clemency.
