Chase and Slater are our April 13, Pups of the Week

Everyday it’s the same thing.  We bark and we’re told to quiet down.  Our parents don’t bother to find out what we are barking at they just order quiet.  This week Chase and Slater scored a big victory for all dogs who have ever been told to be quiet while impending doom is about to strike.

One night this week Chase and Slater were standing by the outside glass door barking into the night.  Their Mom kept telling them to quit down.  When she went to check on what caused the barking she was stunned to find a man slumped over on his porch.  

She called 911 and the police came for the slumping man.  They loaded him into the police car and took him away.  The next day a man came to speak to Chase’s and Slater’s Dad to tell him that the man had been sleep walking although sleep slumping seems more appropriate.

Chase’s and Slater’s Mom realized that, if they had not barked at him, warning her, when she went to sleep, the slumping man may have straightened, entered their home, and who knows what damage could be done.  Recently our friend Anna Nicole’s house was robbed. Luckily only the pups were home and no one was hurt.

What Chase and Slater did, shortly after what happened at Anna’s house, may finally give us what we have wanted for so long.  The Freedom to Bark whenever we want.  And now, when we do, and our parents begin to tell us that we should be quiet, they will think of Chase and Slater, and hopefully not say anything at all.

Now, when we are looking out the window, and we see a neighbor walking down the street and start to bark loudly Mommy won’t yell at us to quiet down but will start to think of the walker as a potential porch sloucher.  If we start barking at a noise that only we can hear instead of getting shouted at for barking at nothing maybe they will recognize that it could be the sound of supersonic North Korean missiles hundreds of miles away and our barking will help them get to safety before the explosions.

So thank you Chase and Slater, not only for protecting your Mom from the serial sloucher but to put in the minds of Mom’s everywhere that we might not be barking for no reason but we actually are barking because we are under an imminent threat (when, in reality, we are just barking to bark.)

Thank you Chase and Slater for giving us the Freedom to Bark.


  1. We're allowed to bark....but not for a long time. SHE comes out and tells us to be quiet, too. That's because we have a 'person alert' bark and an 'animal--especially cats--alert' bark.
