Well since my hunting dog is now spoiled and no longer stays in the barn. I had a flipping family of racoons I had to run out of the barn. So I've been keeping the doors closed. This evening I fed my hunting dog and turned off the lights and closed the door behind me.
I kid you not... but not more than 5 minutes later my wife hears him howling. She says to me "did you lock him up in the barn?" I said yes, I fed him and left him in there to finish eating. She said well I think he done eating now and he sure sounds lonely, will you go get him for me, please? Yes Hun, I'll go get him. Now why my wife has suddenly taken such a intrest in my dog, I'll probably never know and if I did know, I'm almost certain I would not understand why.
