canine howling

if we didnt live at the country n with neighbors a half a mile away
in one direction and further in the other directions
im sure we would be turned over to the bark police
if we lived in town

you know we would be that neighbor whose dogs bark in
the middle of the night
when you get into that deep deep sleep that you need to feel

then add to that a rooster starts crowing about 400 in the morning

these are sounds that if you are not use to them might be

but here at the country n we live in a country hoa that allows
barking dogs and crowing roosters
no one cares
i guess cause they cant hear them

yes if we live in town we would probably be ousted by now
from living within the city limits by those ordinances
they have

people who come to visit us unannounced dont come knock
on our door
instead they drive up to our gate and honk or yell real loud
they know better to go farther

well the new ups guy didnt know the country rules
as one day while i was napping after lunch i heard those
dogs abarking
for those who are hunters and have used dogs to squirrel hunt
or hog hunt its the sound when they have the quarry pinned down

i got up and there was the ups guy pinned up against the wall
keeping our watch dogs at bay with the package he had to
thank goodness it was a long narrow package
i started to wait awhile to retrieve him but didnt have the heart
to let it go on so long

the dogs had done their jobs well

we have two dogs

one is a licker he would lick you to death
but with his bark a deep sounding one you wouldnt know that

the other one if when you look at him and see his eyes
theres no way you would ever cross through that gate
then he does have a nasty bark also

ok so hes proven himself a few times when someone did that
ill withhold the details

but he is what you want in a watchdog in a rural area

we always keep him locked up when visitors are around
to be safe

as im writing this the two dogs are barking because someone
drove into our driveway which is 2 acres long
we are on a curve so our drive seems to be a common spot
that people pull off the road
what they do i dont know
maybe talk on their cellphones

im sure there is no way anyone would even think of coming
onto or property though

so this canine howling that goes on we tolerate here at the
country n
since each bark reminds us they are just doing their job
protecting us here at the country n

well sometimes its the coyotes howling that triggers it or
a nearby siren which the dogs hate or a herd of deer that
get too close to our property line

just doing their job they are
