umm  
okay, so my neighbour's not been well right. I dunno what it is but I've heard him cough a lot lately.

I can't hear him now.

His car's outside his house.

Zeus (his dog) is barking.

Zeus is also responding to me whistling and talking through the walls (I'm a dog person, what can I say?)

But now I'm worried. The car's there, I can't hear Dale, I *can* hear Zeus and Zeus doesn't normally bark.

Am I just being the paranoid kid who always had to make sure she said goodnight to her mum in case her mum didn't make it through the night?

Dale's just had a cold or something, right? He's taken a walk or something, right?

What the hell do I do?!

etaOkay, so I've started to hear movement from next door and Zeus has stopped barking so much. I will call my neighbour's across the road tomorrow to see if they know anything.

Also?

My sister is smart.

She has her faults, god knows, but I just spoke to her about *stuff* and she's smart. About some things.

Go knock on his door and then possibly be embarrassed when he wanders up from his walk behind you?

And if all you get is further barking, contact an authority just to be sure. Can't hurt anything to check, right?

I decided to give it till about 8 o'clock to see if anything changed, and just at the point where I was getting really worried I heard the TV click on from next door and Zeus quietened down a little.

*phew!*

I decided to leave it a little longer before going round, but by about 8ish I heard him come back in so it's all good.

I just got all flaily I guess.

Now that would have been a good idea, if there's ever a next time that might just be what I do to deal with it! Cheers!

Phone him.
When he answers, then just use the "oops! Dialed wrong number"

I don't actually have his number and I think he's ex-directory. It turned out okay in the end though - thanks!

Knock on the door. If he answers then just ask about Zeus, if not try again until he either a) answers looking annoyed you woke him up or b) turns up from wherever he's gone (he could've walked into town, it's only around the corner, & he'll be back soon if he has 'cause everywhere'll be closing).

If still no sign, try the other neighbour & ask them what to do so you've got backup :)

I'd knock on the door to check he's OK. But I'm quite paranoid about these things as well.
