First let me say: A GSP's bark is extremely LOUD inside the house.
I was in the kitchen today and Xara all of a sudden started barking like crazy. Not a "stranger!" bark, just this extremely loud, very annoying deep, yet shrill bark. It went right through you.
I went out to see what in the world was happening and I see her laying on the couch with Dave's shoe next to her. Assuming she was barking at Sniper to leave her new toy alone, I walked over to take the shoe off her and correct her for having it. The only problem was,,,it was attached to her!
Evidently in the course of playing with the shoe when my back was turned, it somehow got hooked on her collar and she couldn't get rid of the shoe that was now following her around She'd move, it would move and so on. She wasn't scared of it, she was very highly ticked off that it wouldn't leave her alone LMAO!!!!
So she barked at it, I supposed to tell it to back off. Of course, that didn't work and I ended up having to untangle the shoe from her collar............after I could see again due to the tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard!
