Me: Okay. It’s 6 a.m. I am not ready to get up. That is not in my schedule. Tiger is barking incessantly, rhythmically. I give up. I have to put a stop to this. Hey, what’s going on?
Stella: I’ll just stay in bed, thank you.
Me: As you wish. Hey, Tiger, what’s the deal?
Me: Why the barking? It’s too early.
Tiger: I don’t know. Ask Sweetie. She started it.
Me: Sweetie, what’s going on?
Miss Sweetie: I heard a noise.
Me: What type of noise?
Miss Sweetie: A human noise from out there.
Me: Why is that your business?
Miss Sweetie: Everything is my business.
Me: Okay, stop the mindless barking.
Miss Sweetie: What is mindless barking?
Me: Barking that has no mind or thought behind it.
Miss Sweetie: I don’t have a mind or thought.
Doodlebug: I told you so, Lady Human. That’s Sweetie. That’s the way she is.
Wiggles: Is it time for breakfast?
Wiggles: Then everybody, go back to sleep!
Stella: Too late. Already there.

My dogs were barking at nothing early this morning too.
We must have missed it on the calendar. It was Barking for No Reason Day. LOL!
