"Ok, that's the USP guy."
"I've really no idea what you're barking at this time..."
"It's only me! Stop barking!"
"Yes, it's the scary mailman. He's terrifying and horrible, but you've scared him off. Thank you, you've kept us safe."
"Yes, I hear the sirens, there's no need to howl..."
"Fine, your howling is cute."
"Are you barking at a squirrel? You're barking at a squirrel."
"I know other dogs are barking, but there's no need for you to join in."
"Oh my gosh you're so cute! Yes you are, yes you are!"
Josie likes to bark. A lot. Talking to her can sometimes calm her down though, which is why I discuss her barking habits so often with her. On the up side, at least her howls are cute.
She has this bit of fur on the top of her head that can be turned into a mohawk of sorts, it's kind of fun to play with on occasion. And dangit, my bed just had to be unmade when I took this photo...oh well.
