I live on a really nice street. All of the houses were built in the last 10 years and they are all well kept and very lovely. The weird thing is that this street is built into an older neighborhood of homes that were built in the 1970's so the houses behind us are much older and about $100,000 cheaper.
What a difference $100,000 makes!
Last fall the house behind us went on the market. For several months, it sat empty and finally in December I noticed some activity over there...Someone was moving in! The reason that I notice this house so much is because the view from my kitchen window and backyard deck, is the back of this house. I can't help but see it every single day as I go about my business.
Right away I noticed two LARGE dogs. They looked like greyhounds but furrier and bulkier. Their howl (which was often) sounded like a siren. It woke the children from their nap on a regular basis. I worried that they could be able to jump the fence and eat my kids. I wish I had pictures of these dogs to show you.....
A few days later...I saw a Rabbit cage. Oh, how nice I thought...the new people have a rabbit. I still didn't see any *people* just animals. Then in early January the hay/straw bales arrived.
My husband's family used to raise Rabbits for show and he informed me that they smell. Oh great, I thought...we get to smell Rabbits all summer.
Finally I saw the residents of the house, a woman and her daughter. We shall call them MA and Daisy May from this point forward. Even they wear surgical masks when handling the rabbits. Are these little buggers toxic?
And now...I notice that they have three little strange looking dogs that are inside the house. Instead of letting them outside in the yard to potty...she just lets them out onto the deck which she has covered in plastic.
I'm pretty sure that we are not zoned for livestock so I'm not sure how she is getting away with this. I just hate looking at this everyday! Plus...what is she is holding the Easter Bunny hostage? Shouldn't I alert the authorities?
What would you do? Should I call the city and report her? Should I just close my blinds and pretend this mess isn't there? I think I'll call Martha and ask her what she would do.....
