In my own little world this morning, I walked past someone's house and was shocked out of my reverie by dogs barking, two little pedigree bull terriers to be exact.
And commonly humans perceive that they're just protecting their home from intruders, but my brain went a little overboard with new possibilities.
What if they are just barking to get your attention?
Like little kids that pluck your jean flaps trying to tell you something, "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!" and you respond, "What?", only for the answer to be...
Maybe dogs are just trying to tell you something as you pass by, like "Hey! Hey! Hey! You! Hey! I've got something to tell you!"
If you're inquisitive, turn around, approach said doggy and ask, "What is it, boy, little Jimmy fell down the well?"
Here are the possible answers:
- I just saw a cat!
- Have you seen my balls?
- My master is really tall.
- It's my ball, it's my ball, it's my ball!
- You smell like cherries.
- I haven't smelt a butt in dayyysss....
Or examples thereof.
