I try not to let my dogs bark like this often. But this time instead of distracting them I decided to record them on video to share with you. So you can see why I love them so much. Or not.

I love how Casey just lies there the entire time, pretending nothing is happening. I bet he's imagining that he's in a home with no other dogs, where the only noise is from his new mom who is telling him how much she loves him while she pets him and gives him treats. He's no longer lying on a rumpled futon, surrounded by barking dogs -- instead he is lying on a giant soft fluffy pillow that smells slightly of chicken. He has just returned from a long walk in the woods, and the only thing on the agenda for the rest of the evening is a lot of one-on-one attention from his mom, a steak dinner, and a nap. Casey has a great imagination.
That is why he looks so relaxed in spite of the commotion going on around him. Well, that plus he really did just get back from a long walk in the woods - and he'll settle for whatever he can get. It's also why Remi is barking - Noelle and Casey got to go for a long walk, and Remi and Ziggy had to settle for a quick trip around the block. Remi is wanting to go back out and walk some more. Ziggy is just trying to get someone to play with him. Anyone who thinks deaf dogs don't bark? Now you know - sometimes deaf dogs don't STOP barking!
