I fucking hate my annoying neighbours. No, seriously.

This morning I was making my first cup of tea of the day when I heard a piteous whining sound coming from outside. I went out to the backgarden and found it was coming from their garden - they've got a yappy little Jack Russell called Holly, and I assumed it was her. She sounded quite distressed and I wanted to make sure she was okay, but the fence between our gardens is abouteight feet high, so I went upstairs to look in to the garden from David's room, which is at the back of the house.

And when I looked down into their garden I saw not Holly, but a tiny little russet coloured puppy, crying and crying in a state of great distress. I couldn't see Holly, but I assume she was there too because I could hear her barking angrily at the puppy. I called out and the puppy looked up and saw me, and ran over to the fence in an obvious attempt to reach me (which meant I couldn't see it anymore). There's nothing I can do, though - I talked to the puppy for a while, which stopped it crying, but as soon as I stopped speaking it starting whining again. I obviously can't stay there all day, and even if I did, I can't get into it if Holly attacks it.

What sort of pricks get a tiny puppy and treat it like that? I mean, it's bad enough that they leave their horrible teenage children alone every single weekend*, but neglecting a tiny puppy and leaving it with an aggressive little terrier? They are fucking horrible and I hate them.

*I should add that I am not one of those creepy people who think that mistreatment of animals is worse than mistreatment of humans - hell, I eat meat - but as I said in comments, I'm used to their apparent indifference towards the kids, but the mistreatment of animals is a revolting novelty.

Same here. My reason is that animals are completely and utterly dependent upon us (especially when we've brought them into our lives) for their emotional and physical well-being. If I don't feed the cats, it's not like they can open the fridge and do it theirowndamnselves. Humans can, for the most part, figure out how to shift for themselves, sometimes they require a little help from other humans, but animals are devastatingly vulnerable to both our worst and best behavior.

Turn the bastards in.
