Huck barks at everything. We learned early on that our basset hound will bark relentlessly at a toad in the middle of the night. We generally take Hucks alerts with a grain of salt. But when Grizzly gets going, we’re on it. So around midnight last night Huck starts in. He goes on and on for a good five minutes, finally Grizzly comes to check out the situation and then he starts up. That’s when Cody heads out the door with a shotgun, and no flashlight. I start having visions of dead dogs because our dogs do not like to be called off of anything. Thankfully, this thing was a porcupine and they’ve learned the hard way what happens when you get too close, twice. So Cody literally takes a shot in the dark and comes back for his flashlight and another shell to finish the job.
