Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark!

I love my dog. He is pretty much the perfect dog for me, my heart dog, but he has this one thing that can totally drive you out of your mind. He has perfected this bark scream/shriek that with prolonged exposure could make even the most hardened criminal crumble. Seriously, I think the military could utilize tapings of his bark screams to break people in interrogations. Haha!

Last night Red decided there was a possible perimeter breach and he wasn't going to allow it to happen without sounding the alarm...all night long. I trust his instincts, as he actually alerted us to a man in our backyard in the middle of the night a couple of months ago, so I always give him the benefit of the doubt the first time. But living in the country we have lots and lots of "Bad Guys", otherwise known as deer and squirrels and the deer love to come mingle in the empty lot next to us late at night.

Starting at about 3am Red decided there were Bad Guys too close to "his" yard for his comfort and no amount of getting up and letting him do a quick check of the backyard was going to stop the shrieking. I begged, I pleaded, I stomped my foot...and all Red did was bark back at me. He's lucky the other 99% of the time he is so darn cute!

It just so happens I have footage of said bark shrieking that I can share with you guys! I will forewarn you, that you want to check your computer volume before playing this video if you value your hearing, haha! As Red's favorite time to do his shrieking is late at night, the video is in night mode so you'll have to forgive the quality.

Right around the 35 second mark it gets really good...don't say I didn't warn you! Ha!

During the day Red surveys his yard from his favorite vantage point...the deck railing! He would make a great circus dog!

Well that got the vizslas running outside barking at nothing, while Trixie came in to see what was playing on the computer. So I think we know who the smart one is ...

Oh deer! (LOL) I know we get racoons and the neighborhood bear that likes to dump the trash.

Wow! That's one excited pooch. I'm sure the "bad guys" made a hasty retreat.
