This morning, he was justa barking. I looked out the window to see if I could see what it might be, and it was a truck way down the road that had parked on the side of the road. I'm guessing they're doing some sort of work, since people have been working up and down our road lately. He's so far away, there's really no reason for Comet to be making such a fuss.
I stood at the living room window and called out to him. I figured he would hear me just fine since dogs have super hearing, and he did. I told him to stop barking at the people down the road. When he realized I was having a conversation with him, he walked over to the window and looked up at me.
"Comet, don't bark at those people way down there, they aren't bothering anyone. If they come to our house, then you can bark, but while they're down there, please be quiet!"
And I kid you not, he looked right at me, and gave a short bark as if saying, "Ok." and went on his merry way. I haven't heard a peep from him since.
