What Could It Be?

Last night was the worst night of all, I woke several times and was awake at 4 am when I heard Tony go outside and tell the dog to shut up and go to sleep. For a week now Harley, the 10 year old beagle, has barked and raised hell at something. The last time he did this Tony checked for a snake around the dog house and found none. Roscoe came out of the dog house yesterday yawning and sleepy eyed so I don`t think its a snake. The dog feeder is by the dog house and under the little roof hang over I made them last year so it`ll stay dry. I am thinking that maybe a possum or raccoon is coming back there to eat their food, a possum probably. If it were rats Roscoe kills those, so I now need to figure out what is what and set a trap for it. But this morning I did sleep well, barking dog and weird dreams, seems to be the norm for me. How are you today?

Barking dogs do really keep one awake at night. I prefer the barking to the howling - at least.

That reminds me of the strange looking animal I saw around here not too long ago. I was on my way home from church when I saw what I thought at first was a cat, but wasn't. Not sure what that was. I hope you find whatever is making the dog bark every night.

@andriaperry I'm not sure if I understand your comment are you trying to say that there are more rest in the woods and that you're not scared of them? My ex is a garbage truck driver and he's not afraid of. When he opens up some people's garbage cans and throws it into the garbage truck you say rats are just jumping out the truck. I have zero understanding how he could do that job.

@sharon6345 No I am not scared of them. I don`t like them because they are nasty, no filthy and rat piss is as bad as the small of cat pee. But no I am not scared of rats. I used to live in this one house and I swear the rats must have had a secret city under the ground of that place, the cats killed them the dogs killed them, I killed them. The problem? the nasty neighbors. They moved and took the rats with them

Barking dogs certainly are bad for sleeping well. I hope you find what's disturbing Roscoe so you and hubby can sleep.

I am not married but Tony, my cousin, said he heard a car so it may have been someone down on the road.

Get a cheap game camera from Walmart and set out in the pen facing the food thing. The cheap ones ate 35 at Walmart I think.

@andriaperry Are you getting used to Harley barking or was Harley quiet so you could get some sleep?

Kobe took to barking at the wee hours of the morning, for a while. Jay built a gate over his dog-building, so now he's locked in at night. I go out at 7:00A to let Kobe run loose again.

They have the whole backyard and its pretty big, but the fence holes are field fencing so they are large and critters can come and go.

@andriaperry We have critters wandering around our neighbor's yards, ours has a chain-link fence all the way around. But, Kobe can see those animals, when he's out in the yard at night.

Hmm. Not sure. Maybe an opossum or something? Either way, that would drive me berserk, I hope you figure it out.

I am pretty good thanks..I slept OK..although the cat has decided in the morning he needs to start scratching. I don't have a clue why he doesn't have fleas..he does it every summer though. When I had a dog..for some reason, he wanted to go out at 2AM and bark. It is a good thing I don't have close neighbors. It was always on one side of the yard. I never figured out what he was barking at.

Yep, I do have a cage. Once I did catch a possum, took it a few miles away and dumped him out.
