Around here, there are barking dogs that go ballistic at:
- Children heading to or from the school bus stop
- Dogs being walked on leashes, and no, those dogs aren't barking
- People in wheelchairs and motorized scooters
- Families out for a stroll
So, again, why all the noise? Is it a way of intimidating the rest of the neighborhood? Offering public proof of what a jerk you are?
To the dogs, I say that you're doing a great job. And the great job you're doing is preventing peace and quiet in the neighborhood.
The Department of Shameless Self-Promotion. If you yearn to walk through your neighborhood without the non-stop barking assault, have I got a store for you! Check out the tee shirts and bumper stickers in my QuietBarkingDogs store.
