#186 – BARK! BARK! BARK!

Photo taken: June 14, 2016

If you live in suburbia with its white picket fences and similar looking houses that disguise meth labs, there are no doubt certain yards where a dog or three roams the free range, and will yap its everloving head off at you for the mere crime of walking past its territory.  This house in the picture above abuts the bike trail I sometimes take a hike down, and the canine of the house rudely greets me and anyone else foolish enough to try and get a little exercise.  I caught him here in mid-bark, woofing at me from the pool deck.  Good doggy.  He’s got a little Fleabag in him…

  1. There’s (at least) one in every neighborhood.

    There’s your problem, “foolish enough to try and get some exercise”. Any exercise done should be done inside. And shouldn’t be done that often. It makes you tired & hungry. Who needs more of that? Plus this way you avoid all those pesky dogs.

    • I wish I could do that, but if I veg out for more than a couple days I start feeling really bad. Now, you’ll never see me jogging or running or anything like that. The last time I ran, when a surprise thunderstorm sprang up on one of my walks. it took about a half an hour for me to even be able to move again…

    For some reason, dogs crack me up when just their head appears like this! We’ve had a few in our neighborhood that have peeked over their fence like this and they were all black dogs too. I don’t like the ones that try to fight through the fence because Gary goes for that and it’s hard to drag him away.

    He looks a bit like a goat in your photo. You’re sure he’s a dog?

    • I’m not sure I ever heard a goat bark its head off like this before… but I see where he does have some caprine qualities to him. I could sure use one myself to take care of lawn duties…

  5. Almost looks like he’s in a guard tower like in prison…..ARF ARF ARF WHO GOES THERE??!!

    One day there’ll be a gap in that white picket fence and then we’ll find out if his bark’s really worse than his bite…

    • Well, there will have to be more than just one gap since he’ll have to get off of that deck as well. I like my odds against each barrier simultaneously getting an opening in them…

  7. I swear that dog looks like the head of a goat. Could it BE a barking goat? I used one of your (signed and dated) pictures in a post today, just so you know. Sometimes, the stuff you draw is just amazing. Sometimes, YOU are just amazing.

    • It could have been a barking goat. Had I known it was a barking goat, I might have tried to kidnap it and make the rounds on the carnival circuit with it. I am always honored when you feature something I made on your blog!

    Looks, um, friendly. That ought to teach you to try to get in a hike, unless you’re prepared to break into a full-out run in the event he leaps off that deck… 😛

    • I don’t do running very well, I’m afraid. I’d be easy prey for a vicious dog whose bite was worse than its bark. The one time I was attacked by a loose dog, I froze just like they tell you to do, and it actually worked…
