I have had a mix bag when it came to neighbors lol. Now we have a hispanic couple to the right of us, and a gay couple to the right of us. The gay couple are cool. One of them has been living there longer than we have lived in this house, (way befor he was one half of "the gay couple next door" that's a looooooong story). My dog adores them. Whenever Mo is chained outside for his potty breaks, if he sees them, he runs over to the fence and does his "give me attention!" whine. They always come and play and pet him.
The neigbors on the other side are ok. Mostly quiet. Unless it's a sunny weekend. Then they have HUGE parties. With loud music. Playing for HOURS. Do you know how hard it is to fall asleep at 10 pm when you have to be up at 5 am the next morning, when mariache music is blaring with the base turned ALL the way up?
The neigbors befor them were psycho. The husband and wife got into a fight one night, and the wife backed over the husband with their truck. My parents happened to be arriving home at this time from someplace (this was at Midnight, also), and called the cops. The husband didnt press charges, because "he loved her." I am also upset at this couple because the cut down this HUGE beautiful willow tree that was on the edge of both our properties. It shaded most of our yards, and kept the house cool in the summer. And they also painted the house primer white. I dont think they even used paint. Just primer. And today, the house is STILL white. White houses are fine, but this one doesnt even have a colored trim!
My dog at one time also use to always escape his leash. One time he escaped, and I chased him up to the corned of the block. There, he ran into the house there.. who had their door WIDE open. They had a screen door, but that was opened too. The guy came out and yelled about the dog runing into his house again. I said this was the first time he had ever run into a strange house. The guy grumbled and said a dog looking like my Mokie ran into his house befor. As I put the dog's leash back on, i said,"well, maybe you shouldnt keep your door wide open anymore." I just turn and left befor the guy could say anything.
A lady a few doors down had a lot better sense of humor about it. Mo use to squeeze into her back yard and run around. i would have to open her gate and get him. i was walking him one day, and she said,"oh, so that's what Mokie looks like when he's on his leash."
