It's official - a dogs' barking is WAY worse than a rooster crowing!

    I'm having construction done on the back yard (building a chicken run among other things) and my older dog was upstairs barking constantly and the rooster was out front crowing. The dogs' barking drove me NUTS until I got her to shut up but his crowing doesn't bother me at all!

    I have neighbors that are pretty far off and I hear their dog yapping and it aggrevates me to no end. But when my roos crow at 3 am when I get home from work I laugh and say "That's my boys!". Then at 3:30, 4, 4:30, 5, 5:30...and so on...and so on...[​IMG]
