Letter: We should all be good neighbors and respect our city and each other

I know times have changed, people have changed and Lodi has changed. What became of the “good neighbor” idea that was so strong in this community? Was it the influx of non-permanent residents or a change in property owners’ respect for each other?

I don’t know or understand, but I live in a nice area and have never heard so many dogs that bark all day and most of the night. Poor animals who are fed and ignored, left to spend their bored lives barking at the wind.

The owners of these animals make no effort to subdue their barking, and if you bring the subject up to them they act offended that you would complain. They don’t seem to care that we all live in an exceptionally nice town together and should respect each others’ needs for quiet.

If you report the offensive animal and owner to the authorities, then you are subject to the owners’ displeasure.

People who don’t tend to their animals or respect their neighbors and the city they live in are creating problems for themselves and those around them. They should have more pride in the city of Lodi, more respect for their neighbors and have a desire to keep Lodi the peaceful city it should be.
