I woke up at 5:45 AM this morning.
Did I want to? No.
Was I planning to? Hell no!
Did I set an alarm? No, and there's was no need to because my neighbor's dog started howling at that ungodly hour and did not stop for over an hour!* I'm not talking about sporadic barking, this dog was yelping non-stop (How do they do that? Don't they get tired or thirsty?)
Here's a little sample:

In order to avoid losing my mind, I decided to go out in search of breakfast... not an easy task. Breakfast in August before 7:00 AM in my neighborhood is near impossible. While on my quest, I saw this at a bar (a bar I never go to because I don't like it and this is one more reason why I'll never go there)
The bar had yet to open but the cornetti had already been delivered and were sitting outside on a crate for over an hour... Gross.

(*After shouting out "shut up" to no avail, I got up, went next door and rang her doorbell but she was not even home. She left the little yapper home alone to annoy and wake up the entire building)

Stupid dog...I hope the neighbours have not gone on holidays and left him never know at this time of the year.

I'd be plotting my revenge...

Leanne- Yeah, I suspected the same thing till I heard her door open & close later that day. So luckily, she didn't abandon the dog at home for the summer but abandoning him for an entire day is bad enough!

Ms. V- I'm open to suggestions ;)

oh I just HATE little yappers too. Our neighbors have them and they drive us NUTS!

I feel for you Erin- what is it about those tiny dogs that makes them bark sooooo much?!?

How annoying - I've been spending a lot of time lately trying to get the little one to sleep - and it's made me acutely aware of all the noise my neighbours make. Last night the peole with the courtyard below my apartment were played LOUD Pino Daniele from the 80s until after midnight. So we got to listen to baby screaming with Pino Daniele + synthesiser in the background. :(
