The Morning Bark – Did you hear something?

The Morning Bark

It will never cease to amaze me the noises that my dogs will respond to with a bark or a whine. They bark because the little dogs two houses down bark. They bark when people walk their dogs in the neighborhood. They howl at the ambulances that are on the way to the hospital (the hospital is less than a ½ mile from the house). They bark at firecrackers on the 4th of July; although, yesterday, when someone decided to use a jack hammer to break up a cement patio for over three hours the dogs didn’t move. They just went on with their routine of sleeping through the morning while I suffered from the loud noise and feeling the house shake. It was absolute frustration and I wondered how it failed to get a response out of the dogs. I certainly hope they will bark when a burglar comes to my house.

What are some of the things that make your dog bark?

  • Wait until your dog’s a senior citizen. Mine is, and what now makes Chelsea bark is much different from what it was. She’s a little deaf now, and as a consequence, when I close the front or back door–not always, just when I do this some special way–the sound sets her off. But that’s OK. She’s a rescued border collie whose company we’ve had the pleasure of for eight years. When we first got her, she was so broken-spirited she didn’t bark–not once–in three months. The day she finally did, my wife Barbara and I were jubilant. So Chelsea can bark at whatever she likes. Fine with us.
