I swear when Augie and I near my friend, Nan's, house her dog, Sammy, does the small dog bark for all he's worth - at the front door.
Now, mind you, most of the time the door is open leaving Sammy a clear view of whatever is happening outside through the full glass storm door.
My point is, though, that we haven't even entered his field of vision yet when he sounds the alert.
How the hell does he know we're coming?
For a while when we first rescued Augie and actually got him a license tag and an ID thingy I thought the sound of those two items clanking together sent out the message.
It wasn't long before the clanking drove me crazy so off they came and the neighborhood dogs still barked.
Nell across the street barks at us. The Dobes at the corner sound like they're coming through the door.
Augie has great hearing although he has an issue with where the sound is coming from - a slight handicap but we love him anyway. He only barks at the people/dogs he can see through the picture window in the living room while kickin' back in the recliner.
So what do you think? Spidey sense or what???
