A barking problem

I'm working from home today since my back is out of sorts and I'm dealing with an(other) ugly head cold. Of course, every chance they get, Lola and Odin are up and BARKING IN MY EAR whenever the mailman comes, or the UPS guy, or the gardener, or the second mailman, or the lady who wants to sell neighborhood Christmas trees.

It is all I can do not to strangle the two of them, or drug them with a little Benadryl and a sip of Jon's scotch. (what? I would never do that. I'm just saying....)

So, of course, today's Dooce post couldn't come at a better time. Oh, how I can totally relate.

I am right there with you! I wish I could zap Hunter and Scout every time they barked because of a "noise" they heard... did I really write that??? ;)

I sent Ben that exact Dooce link because his dog LOSES HIS MIND whenever the mail man or UPS guy DARE show their faces on Hester Ave.

Freedom has the same problem and now that we live on a street near a high school she has got a lot to bark the leaves are falling so that has got to be barked about all day and night long. Yes she barks in her sleep too!
