I read the article in the Patterson Irrigator dated Thursday, May 15, regarding the barking dogs.
However, I am new to Patterson and also experienced life in the city, traffic, sirens, crime and etc.
I hear the dogs barking in my neighborhood as well.
It is far better than what I experienced in the city. I would rather hear a barking dog as opposed to gunshots, or people running through my backyard.
Pets are a joy to have. Like people, they have habits. It is still peaceful in Patterson.
