It's one thing to put your dogs out around 7 or so, because you are leaving to go to work, but if you work weird hours, figure something else out or don't have pets. I have yelled out my bedroom window at 5am numerous times for these dogs to be quiet and lay down. My mistake, they just bark more.
Oh what do you know, as I am sitting here writing this, they are barking again. It's not as if they ever stopped but still, go figure. Don't get me wrong, I am an animal lover, we have 2 dogs of our own. But we do not leave them out to bark unless we are gone during the middle of the day and it is warm enough outside.
So I guess my question is, why do Borough residents not receive the same help from local authorities? We won't even go to the roads not being fixed by the Borough, we have to do it ourselves segment of things that really urk me about living outside of "the city". Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love it here, but there are some things in Ketchikan that really need to change.
