A GROUP of neighbourhood dogs said last night’s two-hour barking session was one of the best this year.
The barking began shortly after 11pm in Peterborough and spread rapidly across a half mile radius, involving up to 14 dogs.
Martin Bishop, a black labrador, said: “I thought that session had a really good consistency. Very few lulls.
“Personally, I felt I was in very good voice. I was alternating between single, throaty barks and short bursts of extremely loud barking. I think it worked really well.”
Wayne Hayes, a springer spaniel, said: “Took me a while to get into it this time. I was tired as I’d been running around all day like a total and utter psychopath. But when a good bark starts you just get carried along with it, don’t you?
“I’m pretty sure I woke a baby, so I’m happy with my performance.”
Bishop added: “My owner came downstairs and told me to ‘shut my fucking face’. He was really angry with me, it was actually quite unpleasant. He even asked me ‘who started it’. I was like, ‘grow up’.”
“Anyway that was excellent. I feel so much better.”
