Everybody say it with me now....awwwwww.

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.

That is as bad as our rooster next door. I think he was on Australian time. Started crowing about 3am. One call to animal control took care of it. No roosters allowed in Tacoma.

Of course, if he's smart, he'll start barking every night just to get a peanut butter sandwich!

The peanut butter solution is serious brilliance. I think you're rapidly climbing the list of people I want around in a catastrophe. I mean, not because I want you to suffer a catastrophe, but you're clever like a ninja.

Genius! But I think next time he won't stop until you also toss him a piece of bread covered in jelly.

Becky said...

You are SO smart. Funny, too. Just better hope the little bugger doesn't have a peanut allergy. Although ...

Maybe it stuck his tongue to the roof of his mouth.
