four people in an apartment building. over the summer, people in apartment 3, who have lived in the building for two years, get a dog. its pretty fucking annoying and barks all the time but nobody complains too much because animal control doesn't do anything and the landlord doesn't do anything.
lady in apartment 2, who has ben living there for seven years, gets a dog this month. its also pretty fucking annoying.
but its unbearable with the dog upstairs. they bark at each other...all day.
apt 3's dog barks at nothing, apt 2's dog barks in response. apt 3's dog then continues barking.
to solve the problem, landlord says one of them has to get rid of their dogs...but doesn't specify who. he leaves them to work it out themselves.
*this is a hypothetical situation*
