Look closely at this picture...
Do you see something other than snow and our neighbors' barns peeking over the hill?
I know it's hard to see, but if you click on the picture to enlarge it, you might be able to see our neighbors' dog, sitting in front of the tree on the far left of the fence line.
Every. Single. Morning...he sits just over the property line and barks... and barks...and barks. It's far away enough that it's not annoying...but rather amusing!
I guess he's looking for "someone" to play with!
Snickers and Murphy ignore him most of the day...but at night we hear the "Twilight Barking" begin around bed time, and I'm sure they run through the fields to meet their neighbor while we're sleeping.
