|Mother Ruth and her terriers|
There are, as I may have mentioned, four dogs on the property, three terriers and a German Shepherd. Even if they were taught the command - "quiet, no barking" - as I taught my cocker spaniel, it wouldn't have stopped the rest of the dogs in the neighbourhood from barking, or the roosters from crowing, or the cats from making their wild and whacky sounds.
Only Mother Nature could stop the noise by causing the cool winds to blow. The terriers are mama, papa and baby. In the morning they ventured out in their sweaters. The German Shepherd refuses to have anything to do with humanoid clothing
