Got a retired old couple living to the left of me, both really nice people, always polite and up for a bit of banta when we catch each other.
Recently, I've been hearing these little cries from an animal of some sort in the middle of the night, I thought it was just cats or foxes having a scrap outside, which is normal around where I am, so thought nothing of it.
But arriving home late after work, around 12am'ish one night, the neighbour was outside his house walking the Dog. I had a quick chat, and then he told me that the dog has pretty much had it, not long to live now, she was blind already, and needed to poo every few hours due to old age, but they can't bear to put it down. Dog was the noise I could hear screaming in the middle of the night, crying to go out and take a dump!
Don't know what to think of it really, I'd rather they put it down and ease it's suffering, and maybe aid my sleep in the process, but I'm in no position to comment... really sad I think, and the old couple don't have kids or anything, so I guess they are pretty attached to the dog also... :crying:
