What is wrong with people?

What is wrong with people? There has been a dog barking incessantly in apartment 3R in my building since yesterday. I was too busy yesterday to deal with the situation since I had to get ready for the last performance of JULIA & BUDDY, and hoped it would stop. But it continued today.

I knocked on the door of 3R but no answer - it appears they've just abandoned this poor dog for days. And the thing is, we aren't even supposed to have dogs in this building. And when I called the superintendent to report the situation, I could barely understand what he was saying, between his accent, broken English and the bad cell phone connection, but he said something like the people in that apartment don't really live there, and the superintendent doesn't have a key, and maybe they'll get around to breaking the door down. And meanwhile the little dog just barks and barks and barks.

I also knocked on the door of 3R's next door neighbors. Not only did they not know anything about their neighbors in 3R, they didn't seem to be bothered at all by the fact that a poor little dog was in distress and barking constantly right near them.

Why am I the only person in this whole apartment building who is disturbed by a poor dog's constant barking???
