Good Dogs Bark

As I walk all over my town of Ravenna, Ohio, I encounter something so common I have to talk about it.

As I pass houses/ lawns where there is a dog in the yard, the dog will bark. This does not scare, nor startle me. I consider it expected behavior.

The dog barks because he is warning his master that a stranger is near. And he’s warning me that I’m close to entering his territory. Dogs are by nature territorial and protective.

Unfortunately, the masters will inevitably yell at the dog to shut up. They do this because the dog’s barking is a bother to them.

I always say: “GOOD DOG”.
