How are your neighbors treating you, Linda asks, Mishu answers

Dear Linda: So nice of you to ask! Almost every night I meet my puppy friends Onyx and Remy outside to play and even though they’re small they’re always happy to chase me. So – I’d say my neighbors are treating me great! How about yours?

💌 Mishu a question


  1. We rarely see our neighbors because the lady is highly allergic to us. She even has a reaction if Mom Paula gets too close to her with fur on her clothes.

  2. That’s so fun that you have puppy neighbors to play with and chase! Lucky dog! Our neighbors have dogs, but they are not all so friendly and like to bark at us through the fence.

  3. I’m glad you have such great neighbors, Mishu! Magical-Dawg would love to have more play dates, but we don’t live near to other dogs. sad

  4. We only run into our neighbors while walking Rocky, our Great Pyrenees. Without him, we’d probably be hermits. LOL

    Mishu seems to be a super active social pup! Ours is a people pleaser but is ok with the neighbor’s dog whom we look after often.

  6. My neighbors pretty much keep to themselves. For the most part quiet. Guess I can’t complain really. 🙂

    Our neighbors look out for our dog, Soldier, when we aren’t there. Lately, however, they’ve said Soldier barks a LOT when we’re gone for more than a few hours. I guess we’ll have to arrange for a dog walker or pet sitter for those times when we’re gone.

  8. Our neighbours are cats too and we are territorial. They don’t stay long……

  9. We live pretty much in the middle of nowhere; neighbors are nowhere close. But Cookie likes them and they treat her nicely if she meets them.

  10. It’s always nice to have playmates nearby! Sadie likes watching the neighborhood dogs out of the window, but she is too scared to play with them in person. They do like to bark back and forth when the windows are open and I always wonder what they are talking about.

  11. You are so lucky! Don’t get me started on my neighbors. 🙁 I’ll give you a hint… they like to make a lot of noise.

  12. Puppies are fun (mostly, unless you’re old and don’t feel like playing). Our human neighbors are great and our friends, but their dogs only sit and stare at our dogs from behind their invisible fence. A shame, really.

  13. We don’t have many dog neighbors who socialize much. However, I’m in the process of setting up a regular weekend play date with another puppy who was in Bernie’s obedience class about a year ago. We see Charlie and his peoples at Starbucks, so we’re going to try to meet once a week at a neighborhood dog park.

    It’s wonderful you have fun puppy pals! Our backyard has dog neighbors on three-sides, and although we have a six-foot high Husky-proof privacy fence, they rush over and greet each other with lots of sniffs, woos, grunts whenever they know my Huskies are out! It’s there way of saying, “howl”dy neighbor! 😉

  15. Our neighbors dogs like to seriously antagonize the rest of the neighborhood! It’s too bad, it’s almost frustrating every time I walk out any of my doors, they charge the fence!
