For several years now we have been disturbed by a neighbour’s generator. We received a hostile reception when we asked him to cover it to lessen the noise and although he has a quieter one that he used last summer this year he is using the old one again. He lives across the valley from us, so not exactly next door, but in Greece sound travels amazingly well to the extent that we can even hear him talking to his wife!
Fortunately he lives in Athens so only comes here for long weekends generally speaking. Yesterday he departed for Athens but he left a dog behind. We have no way of knowing if he has abandoned the animal or left it as a guard dog with some feeding device or another. Both scenarios are possible here with dogs left alone all the week and others just abandoned in the countryside.
Early this morning we were woken by our dogs howling in unison and all facing towards the house on the opposite hill where the dog was running around trying to escape and our dogs were voicing their sympathy. So now we are faced with a new kind of wake up call!
We will have to wait for a little while and assume that the dog has food and water but if he has been abandoned there we will have to take some kind of action.
