Dependable Erection

Twelve hours and counting

That's how long the dog at 1707 Avondale Drive has been barking continuously as of 5 am.

Here's a sample of what he sounded like between 9 and 10 pm last night.

Interestingly, i've been subpoenaed to give testimony on Tuesday in a case where the property owner has been cited for a noise ordinance violation for allowing his dog to bark for a couple of hours at a time. I can't imagine that he'd skip town and abandon his dogs and property to avoid appearing in court, can you?

Adding - At what point does this become an emergency animal abuse case justifying immediate intervention by the county Animal Control Department?

UPDATE: Dog finally gave up the ghost around 6:20 and has been relatively quiet since then.

  • This particular dog owner has gone through at least half a dozen dogs in the past 2 1/2 years, all of which have been treated the same way, and allowed to roam the neighborhood at will. He had the 4 chihuahuas that were on our listserv last summer, two of which were killed by cars and one picked up by AC. No idea what happened to the last one. He was also the last owner of the chow affectionately known as "Ghost Chow" who used to wander Duke Park and Old North Durham during much of 2007 before finally disappearing a year or so ago without a trace. All by himself he makes me wish we had some sort of test before allowing someone to become a dog owner. I'm willing to bet none of his dogs are licensed, vaccinated, or neutered/spayed.

  • this is what I am wondering.
    Now that the tax admin is collecting fees, do we call the tax office to say "hey, these dogs are not registered, licensed, or vaccinated" or do we call animal control?
