On Saturday I decided to tag along with my neighbor who was having a yard sale and since she advertised we would get a lot of traffic. We set up all the tables and got out all our junk. I brought Mick our B out to the front yard to be with us and meet new people. One gentleman walked right up to Mick and started scratching behind his ears. It was small talk at first ie: "what breed is he?" and such. Then the conversation took an interesting turn….
Man: "Oh he's barkless you say?"
Me: "Yes, but that certainly doesn't mean he doesn't make noise HA-ha!"
Man: "Hmmm... "well how do you know when someone is at the door?"
Man: (standing tall with his arms crossed in front of him and one eyebrow down) "Well, how do you know when the mailman comes?"
Man: "What if there's an intruder?"
Me: "Sir we did NOT get a dog to notify us when someone is at our door, they will simply knock. We didn't get a dog to let us know when the mail arrives, the lil red flag will be up on the mailbox. And we did not get him to be an attack dog, that's what my husbands pistol is for"
Needless to say the gentleman walked away with his tail between his legs.
