Bark In The Night

Dog Talk is out tomorrow in The Star, Weekend section. Doji, the dog who lives next door to us is barking. Doji's friends, and I include myself in that, are happy that he's feeling so confident. Only a few months ago Doji was far too shy to bark at anyone.

dojiBut the pooch who'd been beaten into a pulp when a puppy by a nasty master is reveling in newfound confidence. Doji is barking his head off whenever he senses a threat. Unfortunately his idea of a threat isn't mine. Fallen leaves and sudden clouds don't need to be announced at 4AM with sharp barks!

But I guess he'll become more discriminating over time. At least, I hope so.

By the way, I'm selling some books on Lelong Auctions:

Black Moth by Georgette Heyer

Angel eyes by eric von lustbader

Hunter-Killer Squadron by M. Brennan

Pandora by Jilly Cooper

Starting prices range from RM2 to RM8. Auction runs out in 6 days time. Need I say, "hurry, hurry, hurry?"

There's a dog,( i do not know what breed)a beautiful shaggy big dog.He belongs to some some time ago,but left to be by himself,my family decided to named him Husky.He was beaten once,limping and dragging his hind led.
Now he is afraid to come near,giving us sad looks n scraping for food in the bins.
I am sure at one time he was someone's pride, now people chase him away.I always have a look out for him,but hardly sees him anymore,I hope some one with a good heart had brought him home.

How wonderful! Glad to hear that Doji is confident enough to bark now. It took Scooter 1 month before he is confident to bark.
