I suspect my dog has barked about 400 billion times. Here’s a conversation we have on a daily basis:

DOG: bark bark bark bark bark! bark bark! bark bark bark!
ME: Dog! Shut up!
DOG: bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark! bark! bark! bark bark bark!
ME: Fine. What are you barking at? Oh, you’ve once again discovered the existence of the dog who lives next door. Congratulations.
DOG: Oh, this is great. I warn you about a strange dog trying to move in on our turf and suddenly I’m the asshole.

I thought from the title someone had hacked a Raspberry Pi or similar and attached it to their dog’s collar for one day and actually counted his barks. His unending, never ceasing, even at 3 goddamn AM barks. I also thought it was about my neighbor.

Lucky you. Our neighborhood roosters don’t have a starting time, they’re crowing all the damn time, day and night.
