you all know I live in the country...so, no..not alot of action around here. But...the mailman stops, the occasional car drives by, sometimes even a neighbor stops........then yes, the quick routine barking (not by Addie..she has never barked at a person in her life, only animals) No big deal. Now...laugh if you will, but this is getting to be a serious problem for me.....HEAVEN FORBID the UPS truck is in a 3 mile radius.....they both go completely bonkers!!! It is becoming like some stupid comedy....I hear the truck, ever so faintly....OMG I think to myself...before I can even react, it becomes a wild nightmare of barking, raving lunatic dogs. So, I immediately give the 'enough' command........this is the one time they don't even hear me........they are OBSESSED with than da*m truck!!! Yesterday Brown was making a delivery...but not to my house...and happened to have to go past........It got so wild, so quickly that Ham even lunged for the front room window totally scratching my little queen Anne tea table. Again...garbage truck can stop up on the road...nothing. I used to think Addie just got excited cause the UPS driver gave her a biscuit....and for some reason, Ham just doesn't like her (she has tried, but he doesn't like too many people).......but it's the mere SOUND of the truck. Do you know how far sound travels on a quiet day??? UPS delivery is a way of life around here...we don't have stores. What can I do?????? It's truly making me nuts!
