Barking Dogs Are Not The Problem



I’ve never done this before, but I just can’t let this one go. To the lady in the gold minivan, who obviously had more money than sense, because she can afford the fuel to drive around the entire Payson Ranchos neighborhood, and can take pictures of all the barking dogs!

That’s right folks, you heard right. She stops in front of all the houses and takes pictures of the dogs, while she’s parked in front of your house.

First of all, the dogs are barking because you parked in front of their house. That’s their job, that’s why we have them. She complained they bark all night. No, not in the Ranchos where there are numerous ponds, where the wild animals go to water day and night.

Do you think the dogs are possibly barking at the wild animals? No, not in the country. Welcome to the forest. Most of the families in this particular neighborhood have, for the majority, been in this neighborhood for many, many years.

No one has ever complained before. There’s an atrium in the middle of our neighborhood you can hear the beautiful sounds of many exotic birds. I suppose that also bothers her, you know the sound of nature out in the middle of our wonderful forest.

One of the few affordable neighborhoods in Payson and this lady is trying to make trouble for all the residents trying to make a living, and a life for themselves and their children.

Did you not notice the surrounding neighborhood when you bought your fancy house? Or like a lot of newcomers, you figured you could complain enough later to get things to the way you want them?

I’m sorry you bought your house and tried to roll it and make a huge profit, right as the bottom fell out of the market, or that you’re trying to double your money. But it’s not the barking dogs, it’s not the property that surrounds your property, it’s the market.

Whatever happened to live and let live? Your behavior borders on harassment, actually, it is harassment.

All we are trying to do is make a living, and live our lives in peace. I guess relaxation ranch isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
