"Can't you hear me howl...? ... 'Cos I'm a damned dog..."
"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
- "To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
- "That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.
(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "Silver Blaze")
Ah, if only.
An apology, to next-door neighbours and probably all within this particular postcode, for the nightly yelpings of family dog Franny, at half-hour intervals from dusk 'til dawn.
Even when she's been safely locked up indoors to stop her haring around the garden, she will insist on sticking her head out of the catflap and shriek away.
Can only say sorry. Certainly can't stop her, though not for the want of incessant, infuriated trying.
It's amazing there haven't been any complaints to the council. Surely it can't be too much longer until, onto the doormat, an Asbo arrives.
Yes, that would be an Anti-Social Barking Order. Again - sorry...
