My dog has a piercing bark. He yaps in a way that says, "YAP, bitch! Look at me when I YAP at you! YAP! Give me some! YAP! I will not be IGNORED! YAP! Perhaps you didn't hear me. YAP!" It's a demanding yap, and there's a pause between yaps while he thinks, "maybe one more will do it ..."
And of course, it's always when I am eating. I tell you there are foods I can no longer eat because the dog climbs up my bosom, gets in my face and yaps.
- Multi-Grain Sun Chips (He hears the bag, of course. Dogs in the next county can hear that bag.)
- Fried Chicken (The dog not only yaps at me, he yaps at the refrigerator when I put it away.)
- Baby Carrots
- Dry Cereal
Many's the time I've said no to fried chicken because he is insufferable when it's in the house. He's even taken to pawing the Sun Chips bag open if it's sitting out. You'll note I'm not mourning the loss of the baby carrots and the dry cereal quite a much as the others. But I'm sure keeping the fried chicken out of the house is good for my diet.
It could be Gary's next diet! Only eat food the dog doesn't want! Diet soda, tomatoes, and fish.
