All the Dogs Begin to Bark

Some dogs will chime in with a few barks when they hear another dog barking down the street or when they are in the park socializing with others.  All it takes is one dog to set it off and then they all start reacting to that barking dog.  This barking can be very contagious spreading from one dog to the next and this is why they say, “Let sleeping dogs lie”.  The beginnings of these group barking’s may initially start with one dog who is trying to say, “Hey I’ve been tied up out here too long, it is about time that you let me in”, and it develops slowly until the whole process of all the dogs barking at once is driving you mad.

I got a little red rooster
Too lazy to crow the day
I got a little red rooster
Too lazy to crow the day
Keeps everything in the barnyard
Upset in every way

Well if you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
Well if you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
Ain’t been no peace in the barnyard
Since my little red rooster’s been gone

Well all the dogs begin to bark
And all the hounds begin to howl
Well all the dogs begin to bark
And all the hounds begin to howl
Watch out strange kin people
Little red rooster’s on the prowl

Hey there, little red rooster
You ain’t shit to me
You think you’re a stud, boy
Well I doubt, I doubt you’ll ever be
While you’re away, I’m gonna fuck with your henhouse
I’m just being neighborly
