Memo to Daisy:

It has come to the attention of the management, that some of your activities are disruptive to those who are working in your area.

Please cease immediately all barking and loud noise associated with the neighbors building their new deck. Failure to comply with this memo could result in immediate termination of your position here.

Next week, please plan on meeting with your manager regarding an all encompassing performance review. This will include discussion and rating of your performance in the following categories:

mouse reduction
neighbor annoyance
fence digging
general sanitation practices

As you already know, our company is making some cutbacks, and may possibly have to let you go at that time. Please have a cardboard box ready and be prepared to pack your things immediately if that becomes our determined course of action.

The Management

Hey, could you carbon copy my neighbors on that? Except change the name to Dear "Cujo".

I must admit I'm grateful to not hear the sound of barking dogs very often ; )

Heather said...

Yeah barking dogs are no good. Especially during the middle of the night.

*Gasp* Are you saying you don't complety adore your dog and every thing she does?

We had a dog that was a barker... we lived in a small town and there was an empty lot behind our house. A herd of deer used to take a path through the empty lot down to the river to drink (I told you it was a SMALL town) and that dog would bark and bark and bark. Made us crazy. Made the neighbors crazy. We finally ended up finding a new home for him... good luck!


You know, you don't really have to send the dog packing. Remember my brilliant emergency food storage plan involving live meat? You can use it sooner rather than later. :)

Hate barking dogs.

TheDillon6 said...

but dogs are SUPPOSED to bark at annoying and unknown things. :)

Jill said...

We had neighbors whose dogs would bark at us when they saw us through our kitchen window.
In our house!!

One of my kids will go bark at the neighbor's dog and get him upset so he starts barking, and the owner will make him go in the house. (The dog, not my son)

Poor Daisy!

Whitney said...

I must admit, I really don't like the barking, but I LOVE dogs.
Our little poodle is 12 now, and has cataracts and has accidents ALL the time....I'm thinking a letter like this might need to happen, ha ha. said...

but i don't think it'll work, he he.


No Cool Story said...

Oooh, sounds rough.

"General sanitation practices" good luck Daisy!

Rhonda said...

Our Tessa dog is ALWAYS one more dog adventure away from being sold on our street corner.....Sold for FREE!

I hear ya.

Nancy Face said... bird is pretty annoying when she starts shrieking, but her position here is safe.

I'm not much of an animal person!

The Morris Fam said...

I'd keep her...especially if she could actually read that memo. Maybe you could even get someone to pay you for her!
