We live in an end unit of a row of townhomes. My partner and I have two small dogs, a 14 year old blind/deaf pug and a 7 month old corgi. We had never spoken to our neighbors until today, and it was very unfortunate. They’re…odd. We have lived here for about a year. They were here when we got here. We put up Ring cameras to watch our cars after an attempted break in. The way our complex is set up, everyone has a large patio/small yard behind the house with a back door, and outside the gate is a double car port. When we put up our back camera, our neighbors plastered their carport in black garbage bags and piled umbrellas against their fence as if we were trying to see in, which our camera isn’t even capable of due to where it is mounted.

We thought it was weird and moved on. We got our puppy a few months later and now, whenever we are outside they trigger their car alarm for as long as forty minutes at a time. They have repeatedly filmed us walking our dogs, and as of today filmed one of us at 6:40am after setting off the car alarm yet again and yelled insults at my partner from their window.

They claim we are intentionally and maliciously letting our dogs nuisance bark; we are very careful not to allow that behavior. Our senior is vaguely senile and does sometimes bark without stopping, but he is very small and very old and the occurrence is quite rare. Our puppy is vocal, but we have trained him extensively since he was a baby. He isn’t actually barking much for a corgi, and typically only when other neighborhood dogs bark. We don’t leave them outside unsupervised and we always encourage quiet when the puppy does bark.

We aren’t really sure how to proceed, so we contacted a lawyer as they threatened us with going to court for disturbing the peace. We have multiple written statements given to us by our community of neighbors stating that they have never noticed excessive barking from our dogs but have been disturbed by the car alarm use.

The neighbors have also slammed heavy objects on the connecting wall, shaking the house, and we were informed they have previously driven residents on their other side out of their home due to their dog as well. Is there anything more we can do to protect ourselves? They have supposedly been known to throw rocks and one other neighbor alleged they left poisoned meat for the previous resident’s dog. We are muzzle training our puppy as soon as we can to prevent him from picking up anything dangerous.

We all live in a senior populated area in rural Washington state. Before COVID, the 2 women next door had difficulty finding cat supplies, and that got harder each year. We are all disabled, but because they are computer illiterate they cannot order supplies. After they wrecked both their cars, I did substantial computer work voluntarily for them . They are bad tempered, but I did it. This included legal papers , medical forms and cat supplies. They are disliked, but I let much go until this week when they attacked me verbally. They have a car now and are feeling power. I cannot drive because I am physically more disabled. I recognize that they are headed to a bad place ( rest home or jail ). I had to quit when due to their paranoia I was attacked. Apparently , others also quit including their servants. They also were rejected by their surviving siblings. I worked for free. I am angry. I would like to know the following since they are now being shunned because since they told too many lies about everyone and attacking verbally, they cannot replace me. Monthly I ordered 14 boxes of wet cat food ( 12 cans per box, Primavera) , 5 sacks of 9 pounds of cat litter, 1 large sack of dry food, and 5 canisters of " Treats " , can they get all that easily ? They enjoyed delivery to their door. In rain. Snow. Right now it's sunny. The gas alone should be $150 to $200 a month. We have Walmart and another store, so they have to drive 2 hours to and from stores inland.
I and about everyone who knows them wants them to have a comeuppance. They have 4 huge cats. The mean women are over 65 . I am 61, physically fragile but my mind is nimble . Any info, and I admit I love the idea of the hauling all that in the cold coastal rain is....gratifying. They taunt " We have a new car now, we do not need anyone ! " Hee hee hee.... their housekeeping staff quit, I quit, hee hee hee...
