The Cat, ur, the Maggie came back almost the very next day.

Yup, it's true. I've lost my mind. Maggie has moved back in. It's like the last two months of quiet have vanished as she waltzed in, grabbed the biggest bone she could find and settled into MY place on the couch. And, the barking resumed.  Maggie barks a great deal. Like any time she wants something. Or someone else is getting something she thinks she might want (attention, a bone, a meal).  Any suggestions to helping curb a 9 year old, spoiled rotten, only dog Maggie's barking for attention issues are very welcome.

All that being said, I'm happy to have my girlie home again.  We'll figure it out, I'm determined. Surely I'm smarter than a labrador?!?

Now I'm going to have that song running through my head all day.

We're also dealing with attention barking. I take it as a clue that I'm not giving Honey enough stimulation or exercise and she needs more of something.

Of course, it's not always convenient. And she'll get fat if I rely too much on food toys. If you find the answer, I hope you'll share.

Oh I do hate doggies who run off at the mouth for no reason. Most annoying. Blah, blah, blah, blabbity, blah, blah. I suggest ear protectors.


P.S. Never had an attention barker at our estate, but we heard that a very fast human might be able to reward the cessation of barking.
