You know the expression 'dog tired'? That's how I felt getting into bed this evening after a trip overseas and a long flight home. And the only thing keeping me awake was an annoyingly loud yapping dog next door. The kind of persistent yapping hour after hour that starts to sound like a jack hammer against a hard surface. Even in my tired state, the irony of the situation was not lost on me.
Just as I was about to do something about the yapping, Pappa beat me to it. I didn't see what happened, but here's what I heard:
Dog: yap yap yap yap YELP (silence)
Pappa on balcony: hoot hoot to PPO
Rest of the evening (at least until I fell asleep about 5 minutes later): silence
I'm sure the dog is fine - a little startled by the silent 'attack' from Pappa. I have been on the receiving end myself and know how quickly and silently the owls fly. As an animal lover, I dislike any animal / bird being hurt so I would'nt encourage Pappa to do that again - even if I could. Although, if ask me again when I am dog-tired, perhaps you will get a different answer...
