First, I would suggest you see your doctor -- what you describe are signs of clinical depression (I was a therapist prior to law school.)
7am is not very early for most people. I don't think you would have a very successful case. Can you try some ear plugs? A white noise machine (trust me, they are great!)

I agree with my colleague.
Look, dogs bark, but based on the facts of this situation, the dog's barking does not rise to the level of being any kind of nuisance for which you could be compensated.

I agree with my colleagues - dogs bark, 7 am is not unusually early (in my neighborhood school buses are out before 7), and your reaction is way out of proportion to what is happening. Your reaction and your comment regarding white noise lead me to believe that you really need to see a doctor for depression screening. This is not a legal issue.
If we do not have a signed fee agreement I am not your attorney and this is not legal advice.
