Long story short my dad helped us buy our house, in return we have to let my brother and his girlfriend live in our 3 bedroom apt above one of our barns. Well he has a very stupid big dog that he lets run all around the property without any supervision OR lead. The dog has been coming over into out yard, crapping, bothering our dogs ( that ARE on leads ) and now worse of all he's chasing my ducks around in circles in their pen! In about a week the ducks will be outside free range and I now I'm afraid to let them because of his stupid a$$ dog! I told him last night, your dog chases the ducks in circles you HAVE to start watching him before he hurts or kills one of my ducks. All he ( and his girlfriend ) keep telling me is, "Oh, he won't hurt them. He'll be too afraid once they quack, he won't bother them. " HELLO, he already is!!! I want his dog to be on a lead during the day, than when the ducks are put away if they really want him to run, go for it. The dog even runs towards the road and I have to be the one to yell at him because all they do is open the door and let him run and shut the door behind him. *UGH!!!!* It's so aggravating. I know this is gonna end up in a fight or stupid childish nonsense, but I don't care. I just called my dad and he agreed it's gotten a bit ridiculous with their dog running a muck. So I guess he's gonna try to talk to my brother and hopefully it won't end up in a fight between the two of us. I swear my brother is so thick headed! We told them when they first moved in they should get an electric fence for their dog so he stays in his OWN yard and not crapping in ours... and nothing, go figure! Sorry guys, just had to vent. I've become very attached to my quackers and I don't want no stupid dog getting in the middle of that! *UPDATE* It went BAD, very very bad. Everything that I knew was gonna happened happened with us all living on the same property. My brother is not the kind of person you can sit down and talk to if it's against him. He screams and puts you down and doesn't want to hear anything! There were a lot of hurtful words said, A LOT of screaming, and a lot of misunderstanding from both sides. Though it started of HORRIBLE, things are ok now. I guess? We found out my dad has actually been behind a lot of our arguing. Going house to house complaining about the others and pretty much getting us against each other. I know he doesn't do it on purpose, but when he gets to drinking he says whatever is on his head and doesn't really care. We were stupid enough to listen to it and not just go right to each other! (which I was told by my dad to always go threw him so me and my brother wouldn't fight... so my dad would take the heat for us sort of thing.) So I called him tonight, he was drinking again go figure, and when my brother and I started screaming and blah blah blah HE LEFT! He said not one word and LEFT! Which actually bothered both my brother and I. ANYWAYS... long story short we're fine now. With everything! And from now on we're going right to each other if we have a problem... NO ONE else! Ugh, it was a long LONG night for sure. My eyes hurt so bad from crying so much. Blah!
