So a while back, Meranda wrote about Mable barking all the time. She asked why. Everybody here knows that us Doodles are great barkers, but what makes us bark? Spencer and me started a list and we want you to add to it.
Why do Doodles Bark?
1. Because.......ya just because
2. Because we are really really good barkers.
3. We has to look after our humans an proteck them.
4. Sometimes it's a contest. Who can be loudest? Who can make Mom yell first? Who has the most different sounds. You know Spencer can do perfect Bloodhound now? It's pawsome!
5. Because the garbage man takes our stuff
6. Because the mailman brings us stuff
7. Because our friend 6 blocks over and 3 blocks up is barking in his yard and we want to say hi
8. Because there's a squirrel in the yard
9. Because there isn't a squirrel in the yard and we wish there was
10. Because another dog went by.
