Strangers and Noises

I am not a happy dog this morning. The strangers are back in our house and they are making lots of noises again. They have been here since last Wednesday, it started with the two guys in the front making tons of noises, then, horrors, now two are in the kitchen where noises are coming from.

She's not listening to me & I am trying to warn her!
I have been barking non-stop since Wednesday, except for Sunday when we didn't have any strangers or noises, so this is my Monday Mischief. I bark, and bark, and bark, and nothing works! I am so frustrated! Why is no one taking me seriously? I'll be out in MY backyard and they just walk right through MY gate and into MY back door! I even go after them barking, I have to protect the Lady that I rescued, and they just ignore me! Sometimes they even try to pet me!

Surveying the damage after the first day.
Thursday morning they came back!
Well, sometimes I do get used to the strangers, they aren't bad all the time, but its the noises that are the worst. Every bump, bang, whatever, I start to bark. The worst day was Friday with dad home. At least I thought he was home. But he went out the door to the kitchen where the strangers and noises were and was gone a long time! I was so worried that they were hurting him! I guarded the door until he came home safely!

To make me feel better, my family went to dinner and I got to go! It helped me to recover from all of the stress from the week!


By Saturday I was getting lots more used to the strangers! Look at how brave I am, I just run right by them to mom!


But after a nice quiet day on Sunday, I am very unhappy that they are all back. I have been barking pretty much non-stop all morning. The Lady I rescued it not very happy with me. Especially after I have been quiet for awhile and just jump up and bark real loud. What? 

Love, Dolly the Doxie (mix)

  1. Dolly - I know how you feel - we had renovations a few years ago and Becca our dog back then had the same frustrations! She was lucky though because the strangers would play fetch with her.

  8. My Pops is one of those strangers in someone else's house and he says he always brings treats for the dogs in the houses he visits. Abe you can tell your dangers to bring you treats too! Then it wouldn't be so bad!!

  10. I bark so much that Mom calls me "Bob Barker" it is particularly insulting when strangers come into our homes and ignore our barks, isn't it? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    1. That's a good one! I barely barked my first year so mom thinks I am trying to make up for it! Love Dolly

  11. Dolly, I can't believe the Lady would be unhappy with you for providing such a valuable service! When we have invited guests The Mom puts me on my leash and steps on it so I don't jump and make a fuss, until I settle down - but when they're unexpected, I growl and bark like a fiend!

    1. Glad to know I'm not the only dog put on a leash in the house! Love Dolly

  12. Dolly, you are an EXCELLENT guard dog! It seems those men are there to destroy and then rebuild your house, which is strange and thus requires a LOT of barking. Keep up the great work!
