Sympathy Barkfest

Kenzie watches the front and I watch the back. Here’s Kenzie on duty

You canines saw it but I bet your peeps didn’t. There’s a rabbit there (no it’s not Kenzie-his ears aren’t that long).  This cannot go unpunished. Kenzie starts the alarm and the barkfest. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing (unless I’m inhaling dinner) and I start barking also. It doesn’t matter that I don’t know what Kenzie is barking at. Think of it as a canine flash mob and I got the cell phone alert. I spring into action with instant and incessant noise. We all wonder about Kenzie but occasionally he’s right and needs reinforcements. It is better to bark now and not be sorry later.

The rabbit shows its disgust by taunting us on OUR path

I’m not as delusion prone as Kenzie and when I announce a barkfest, he comes running. He doesn’t know what he’s barking at yet, but there’s always something because I just don’t start one for fun. The best are when Kismet decides it is time for a trio (starring 2 of the Stooges plus me, Kyla) and she starts flapping her wings in the cage and squawking. Kenzie and I come running. One of these days we’ll get the Hallelujah Chorus down pat. Who needs cell phones and the monthly bills? Barkfests are more important and they’re free.

  1. Great team work. We have to have a dog watching the back and front, as well, then we bark for back up. That’s so the critter/person, whatever, knows there are three of us and we are ready for business.

  2. We’ve also perfected the “tag-team barkfest”. Did it lots yesterday (got told off lots yesterday too for it!) One of the reasons She won’t let us have a Parrot is because its bad enough 3 of us barking, never mind the parrot barking as well!

    She’d moan big time though if we didn’t bark and allowed something to get past our defences. Sometimes you just can’t understand Them!

    Keep on Barking!

    Yap! Gus, Bobby & Fin

  3. Being just me it is hard to keep an eye on all that is going on. The dog next door killed my bunny. I sat by it very sad becaused the bunny left me my itsy bitsey raisins to eat.
    Bunny managed to get through my fence but the dog grabbed it and broke it rear legs.
    It made Lee cry. We buried bunny in the peony flower bed. He loved to sit in the peony bed and I never bothered him.
