Helpful Hints from Suebob: Barking Dogs
At 2:23 this morning, my neighbor's dog was barking continuously with no sign of stopping. Since going over to his house requires putting on clothes, unlocking a gate and walking down a long driveway, I decided to try a home remedy first.
I went into the kitchen. Got a slice of bread. Got out the peanut butter. Slathered it on. Went out, caught the dog's attention, pitched the slice over the fence. Blessed silence.
I ran back in, put in my earplugs, turned up the fan for white noise, and fell asleep. In the half hour it took the dog to clean his chops, I was off to dreamland. If he ever started barking again, I didn't hear him.
