Last Saturday I woke to my dogs pitching a fit. It was cold, late, and I really didn’t want to walk outside, but they were showing no signs of slowing down. I went outside with a flashlight to check….nothing. I told the dogs “that’s enough” and went back to bed. I could still hear growling and intermittent barking…that’s not normal, so I didn’t go back to sleep, instead I turned the tv on. About 15 minutes later everyone was at it again and I could hear some of the dogs jumping at the fence, so I grabbed my flashlight and went back out. This time I didn’t need my flashlight because the reason was apparent. There was a group of abandoned mobile homes on fire about 1/4 mile across the road. FD was called, apparently someone thought it was a good night to commit arson….anyway, next time my dogs all bark for nothing in the middle of the night, I will definitely take a second look!
