Quite an insult, if you are a dog
Was trimming sucker branches from maples in the front yard, Spook was with me of course. The neighbor has 2 cute little maltese dogs that weigh about 2 pounds each. They are happy friendly little dogs that seem to be on springs. They let them out 3 times a day and lke all dogs they have to sniff everything around. They spotted me and came running then the spotted Spook and they began barking at her, standing about 5' away. She stood up and turned her back on them and laid down and began washing a paw. Guess the dogs were beneath her dignity. They weren't too sure how to handle being completely ignored but they finally decided whats the point of barking when the cat ignores you.
