In Some Cases, Dog Barking is a Good Thing!

It was 1982 and I decided to take the plunge and move into a condo in Hoboken, NJ. At the time, Hoboken was an up and coming community that still had it’s problems.  I was given all of the paperwork which indicated that pets were allowed. This was one of my requirements, I needed to move into a pet friendly building. I later adopted an adorable Chihuahua puppy from a friend at work. As you know, Chihuahua’s can be a bit fiesty.  I lived in a fourth floor walkup that had six apartments on each floor.  My unit was on the fourth floor. Whenever someone would reach the fourth floor, my little Chihuahua would bark. His bark made him sound like a much larger dog.

Neighbors began to complain about his barking and I had a big fight on my hands. At one board meeting, one very intolerant neighbor insisted that I get rid of my dog. I insisted that he move instead!! He did but the complaints continued.

One day, there was a break in and several apartments on different  floors were robbed. At least one apartment from each floor had been hit except the fourth floor where I lived with my little Chihuahua. The neighbors on the fourth floor were very grateful that none of their apartments were broken into. They said  that it was my little Chihuahua, with his ferocious bark that scared the home invaders away! Since that time all the neighbors loved my little dog and accepted his ferocious barks as a sign of good security for their units.

Remember, your pets count!
