Bark! Who Goes There?

Purely for intertainment purposes.  No animals were harmed in the making of this blog.

I was browsing a new pet food store today, killing some time, when I saw a display for a collar that stops dogs from barking.  Just to give the clerk a smile, I asked her if it would be wrong to buy one of those to put on my neighbors dog.

I don’t actually have a neighbor who’s dog barks all night, but of course, she took me literally and told me how I should be nice to my neighbors.

I was thinking about it on my way home and the following is how I wish I had followed up on her statement:

“Well, their dog’s barking doesn’t really bother me.  It’s my wife’s yapping in my ear about their dog’s barking that keeps me awake.  I wonder if I could convince my wife the collar is a new fad in necklaces?”

(Disclaimer:  Neither does my wife yap in my ear.  In fact even when she is complaining I have to ask her to repeat it cause she talks too low for me to hear.  Of course she is too nice to repeat a complaint, so she just suggests I clean out my ears.  Always thinking of ways to help me.)
