There is (was) a huge ash tree that marked the point where our garden met that of the neighbour (1) to the side and neighbour(2) next to neighbour (1). The tree was over 150 years old and didn't actually belong to any of the three properties. However, because the trunk was more in our garden than anyone else's, we were usually the ones who organised any work that needed doing on it.
Neighbour (1) complained constantly about the tree - it was too big, what were we going to do about it. We coppiced it every 2 or 3 years, and split the cost between the three properties. She was always the one who nagged to get it done, but she and her husband just afford that much! (Note, when asked to organise it herself, she could never find anyone cheaper!) Earlier this year we suggested removing the tree entirely. We investigated the cost, which was only a little more than coppicing, and this time it would be the last payment on the tree. Neighbour (2) was happy with this. Neighbour (1) thought it was a great idea, but guess what, it would cost too much. Then she said "You've just had a litter of puppies, so you can afford to pay it all."
I so wish I'd remembered to say "What an interesting assumption". As it was my jaw dropped, and I said nothing. Obviously stud fees, good quality feed, Kennel Club registrations, vaccinations, microchips, vet checks etc don't cost a thing, you just rake in the sales money! (Puppies in my breed do not sell for big silly amounts!).
Postscript: She is unhappy because instead of seeing a tree at the back of her garden, she can now see the huge aerial belonging to the radio ham 3 gardens over, and is asking what we can do to make him remove it! The aerial had been there for many years when she moved in.
