As uncomfortable as it is, if you feel strongly about this issue and your neighbor gets a new pet -- you have to turn him/her in. (I own three pets) PS: Pets make happier neighbors: VP

        I say sensitive to act, because kids at some point in their growing years will pester their parents for a dog.
