Want a little Cheese with that W(h)ine?
Mood:  don't ask
Topic: home
So what is it about outside noises - especially the type large vehicles make as they pass our house - that makes the dog go ape-crazy?  I'm talking full blown, jump off the couch like it's on fire, attack me all the while making this horrible whiny, high pitched bark.  And she doesn't just nudge me - she jumps on me so hard I've almost fallen out of the computer chair - no warning or anything.  After the first 20 times before the afternoon, you'd think I'd be ready for it.  But no - she always takes me by surprise.  We had to put a baby gate up by the sliding glass door because she took to jumping on it and scratching at it.  If she hears a helicopter, she wants out - yeah, like she's really going to catch it!  If there's an animal within a 100 yard radius, she has to be out chasing it or trying to get its attention.  Yeah, that bird is NOT going to play ball with you.  But if there's a storm coming - I swear she can hear thunder in Oklahoma! - she better be inside, under the computer, and being babied.  If someone is mowing their grass - same thing.  I think if a squirrel actually turned around and started to charge her, she'd be shaking and crying.  This is not a small dog mind you - she's medium size - a little over 40 lbs.  Not a pure bred by any stretch of the imagination - although we are pretty sure she has some sort of hunting dog in her the way she points and attacks.  Even if were feasible to install a doggy door - I don't see her using it.  I think she would be too scared of it.  I love this dog - she's absolutely very intelligent and amazing - yet sometimes the whine gets so annoying that I want to whine back!

Name: "teresa"

I actually laughed so hard that I almost fell out of MY computer chair. I can really see that happening.
