So I sometimes get aggrivated after ringing my seventh doorbell in a row and hearing a dog yapping. So much so I don't even ring doorbells anymore. Broke a doorbell into a million pieces the other night too. Just figure it's better to leave the things alone, since they always bring unwanted trouble. Like lady opens door, dog runs out and tries to bite u, u get etc. I will ring doorbell sometimes still but more often I dont. Why do u ring or not ring and why does 70% of houses have a dog?
