What the hell is it with Filipinos and their damn dogs? When I first moved here, I lived a pretty good distance from the city. Those that had dogs pretty much would keep them on their property or within their compound. For the most part, these are NOT the dogs that are the big problem and the subject of this article.
Fast forward to now, and I have been living in a new gated subdivision closer to the city. There are some nice homes here, but honestly it’s kind of a shitty community. So, I figured these folks were a little smarter, had a bit more money, and would be respectful neighbors. NOPE!!!! These fuckers have the WORSE habits I have ever seen in my life when it comes to not only dogs but other animals.
First of all, almost every one of them keep their damn dogs locked up in small cages IN FRONT of their houses, not in their compound or behind their gate. They stick these dogs out at the road in cages. The dogs are hot, tired, and nervous as fuck. They bark and go absolutely ballistic at every single person that happens to walk by. You want to take a nice peaceful walk at the end of the day to get some exercise. Forget that idea! You basically walk this dog barking gauntlet. Not one single Filipino EVER scolds their dog here. Not ever have I seen this in the four years I have lived here. It’s like they don’t even know that you CAN scold or even train a dog.
So, the question begs to be asked. Why the FUCK do you park your damn dogs out in front of your house like that? The stupid answer is basically two-fold. The first is the most illogical of them. They say it is for security. I asked, well I have never seen a Filipino EVER go outside, look outside, or investigate in any way shape or form what their dog is barking at. It doesn’t matter if it is 6pm, 6am, 3am, they NEVER EVER check to see what all the barking is about. So, an intruder can continue however they wish because a barking dog is just more “normal noise” we all hear in the Philippines every day. It’s as “normal” as the roosters. Furthermore, the dogs are in cages, so they can’t do shit to you. So again, I really don’t understand what these dogs are for except they make just a shit load of noise.
Reason number two is stupid, but falls right in line with the typical nonsense ideals we see here daily. The dogs are a “status symbol”. I shit you not! I also had this explained to me by several people. Having dogs parked in front of your house apparently means you have money or some ridiculous bullshit. But really, it’s just as stupid as when people here put all those dumb lights and shit all over their cars. It just looks pathetic.
These fucking idiots that live behind us let their dogs bark non-stop sometimes for like an hour. I once couldn’t believe that nobody at their house had done anything and the barking had been going on for about 45 minutes. So, I went out the back door of my house to go take a look. These assholes are just sitting there in their fucking kitchen while the dog is just barking over and over and over. I thought “if this is irritating the fuck out of me from my house, how the hell can they stand that noise right next to their own house?” You all know the answer to that one. Filipinos fucking LOVE noise! Any noise! They remove the exhaust on their stupid little scooters so they can make them loud. It just makes them look like fucking morons!!! They keep dogs in a fucking cage so they can bark all day. And why? NO IDEA. One of the stupidest things you will see here!
I have actually seriously considered “eliminating” one of those dogs that lives behind us. I love dogs though, and I know these dogs are basically neglected by their dumb-fuck owners. So, I have never done anything to them. And who knows what these ass-wipes might do. I’m pretty sure they would know it was me who killed their dogs. On a number of occasions, I have yelled out my window, “shut that fucking dog up!!!!”
We also have people that live in this gated community keeping fucking chickens and goats! At night, the smell of that shit is just awful!! You would think that these people would be above having chickens, goats, and the like living in a nice neighborhood where lots are selling for P9000 per sm. No. They’re here as well. You can move a Filipino out of their shitty provincial barangay, but they’ll bring the same bad habits with them. Filth, trash, barking dogs, chickens, goats, and the obligatory pissing all over the place. I actually have a theory on that topic. A lot of these idiots keeping the goats and chickens are just low-lifes who cashed in on someone working abroad. “Hey, buy me a lot!!!” There are literally people living here on lots that cost P6000+ per sm and they built a piece of shit nippa hut and are raising like 20 fighting cocks under these little 1 meter picket cages scattered about the lot. Next door to that might be a beautiful modern house with nice landscaping. Imagine owning that nice house and then your neighbor keeps a place like that next to you?
I hate this neighborhood. Really hate it. I wish I had taken a closer look at it before moving here. I’ve got 6 months left on the lease. Rest assured I’ll be looking for a new place after this. Its a total piece of shit community with WAY too many morons and idiots living near you. What is it like living here and all the dogs and other animals? This is no exaggeration. Between the hours of 5:30pm and 8:30pm, this neighborhood LITERALLY sounds like a zoo or an animal control facility. 100% SHAMELESS!Published in
