Let Barking Dogs Lie!

What are all those dogs barking at anyway?

Are they barking at shadows?

Maybe entities, spirits, or energy that doesn’t belong here?

Normal barking at cats, strangers, passing cars…

Blank walls, yards or nothing in particular at all!

Do they bark because they’re afraid of the dark?

Bark at something standing in a corner but otherwise nothing visible?

And why does Oreo sometimes look at me and aggressively bark like I’m a stranger which I’m surely not!

They hear things we never hear. Maybe they’re attuned to see things we rarely ever see.

Nothing personal … hopefully nothing paranormal …

Yes! What are all those dogs barking at?

The simple answer is, we don’t know!!!
