You dog owners remind me of other self-centered groups of people. Like bicyclists who think that they own the roads, and that traffic laws don't apply to them, and cigarette smokers who think, or used to think, that they had a right to smoke where ever they want. Guess what? They don't have that right anymore. They abused their right and they lost it.

The world doesn't revolve around you and your dogs.
My, my, my! I'm always intrigued when strangers on the Internet whip out their crystal balls and make pronouncements about other strangers on the Internet whom they've never met. Where do you guys find those handy items? Some tourist shop in Manitou Springs?

OK, you nailed me. I'll come clean. I leave my little corgi out not just 10 hours a day but more like 24/7. He barks non-stop, but I usually have my music turned up so loud, I never hear him. That and this awful cough I have from my 4 pack a day cigarette habit. Who cares about some mutt making noise when you're trying to cough up one of your lungs?

My neighbors leave me alone though, since they know I've been trying for years to engineer an accident between one of them in their car and me on my bike. I'm planning to retire with money to spare once I've selected the neighbor I hate most and figured out how to manage things so I look good when my lawsuit goes before the Montezuma County Judge.

Good thing that there are a few selfless dog-hating, cyclist-loathing people such as yourself who still live in Colorado - a State which only revolves around its residents who smoke medical marijuana.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to let the rest of my pack of vicous corgi's loose now, so they can go eat some luckless rancher's livestock under cover of darkness. Saves on the dog chow bill. (heh, heh, heh)

In most cities, dogs that bark everytime someone walks by the house, is considered breaking a noise ordinance and can get the dog owner fined. After so many times of being fined, the dog owner would be ordered to get rid of the dog or the court would order it taken from them by the animal control officer.

It is really unfair to the neighbors, to have to put up with all that barking. You may like it, but your neighbors certainly won't.

Yes I agree, that the officers poaching an elk, should be treated like any other poachers. That means Jail or fine or both.

Though I admit I'm going off topic here, wanneroo makes a couple good points. And speaking of mountains and isolation and harsh weather, another law enforcement officer has been killed with the situation in California at Big Bear Lake regarding the fired police officer.

Public servants have a thankless job.
