Last night was one of those nights again. Around midnight, we were disturbed by our dog stirring at the sound of a cat wailing. This went on for a bit and we were just dozing off again when the neighbour’s dog started barking. They must keep this dog in a kennel as it was clearly outside and it went on and on and on and on
I can only assume the owner lives alone and works nights and is therefore not at home when this is going on as there is never any attempt to shut the dog up
It is difficult to know which house the dog belongs to because of the layout of our little estate and I was on the point of getting up and walking round the block to try to establish which garden it was coming from, when another neighbour yelled for the dog to shut up. This seemed to have some effect as the dog went quiet
At the same time as all this was going on, as if it wasn’t noisy enough, we could hear the sound of some engineering work being carried out on the nearby railway. Well, I assume that is what it was. Could have been an alien spaceship landing
In fact, maybe that IS what it was
And that’s why the dog was barking
And stopped so suddenly!
OMG! Maybe I SHOULD find out where the dog lived and tell the owners that their pooch has, in fact, been
ABDUCTED BY ALIENS
It’s annoying but sad to hear dogs barking outside at night. We keep Wonderbutt inside so he can only annoy us.
I don’t understand why you’d have a dog if you leave it outside. I have since found out that this home has a DOG FLAP and apparently the dog just shoots out every time he/she hears a noise and barks like a maniac. Not a good excuse, as you CAN lock these flaps!!
This opened up with the picture and I burst out laughing! Scrolled up to read your tale of the poor dog. I hope you find out where it lives and that you and it get some peace tonight.
Sorry for my late reply, I haven’t been blogging lately!
It all seems to have gone quiet since then but I spoke to a neighbour who was also really annoyed by it and I wonder if the family were paid a visit by Environmental Health…..fingers crossed
