Shut Up You Dog

Problem or Opportunity?
Problem or Opportunity?

It’s the middle of the night, your dog starts barking wildly, what would  you do?  Assume there are no children in the house.

  1. Yell at your dog to shut up
  2. Punish your dog in some way for waking you up
  3. You take your dog to the nearest window, open it and let her sniff
  4. You reward your dog for waking you up
  5. Some combo of the first four

  1. 6. Bury my head under the pillow and ignore the dog.

    Although, I think the smart thing to do would be to find out why the dog started barking. Burglars, fire, gas leaks. Could be lots of good reasons for sounding the alarm. Then choose option 4.

  2. Yes, totally forgot a number six as you suggest. Good addition. Thanks.
    Grasshopper, you are on to something here.
    Tomorrow, you’ll hear my philosophy.
    Mike, appreciate your contribution. 🙂
