If an angry dog could talk in plain english, what do you imagine he would be saying to the stranger he's barking at so violently?

Asked by ninjacolin (14224points) March 14th, 2010

silly question i’m curious about

do you think each angry dog has a different message? what might some of those messages be?

do angry barking dogs really want the stranger to just go away or do you think the dog would prefer (if they weren’t on a leash or behind a fence) a chance to attack the stranger?

“Listen buddy, I may look like a stray but I’ll chew your damn leg off inside of 15 seconds. The only reason I’m not home right now is because I patrol the neighborhood from time to time scaring off the mangy transients around here, much like yourself. Not only that, if my master doesn’t let me out to prowl and mark a few fire hydrants once a day, I’m tearing down his drapes and chewing up his shoes. I’ve got his number all right. Now bugger off you human creep!”

Oh no you are not bringing that mail up to my house, AstroChuck! You get out of here. And all the noise I’m making has tipped off the Rottweiler two doors down that you’re coming. And he can knock down that rickity fence anytime he likes!

Are you sure they’re angry? Or are they saying “Better watch it, buddy. Got my eye on you, buddy. Watch it, watch it. You gotta reckon with ME, buddy. I’m the guard here. I’m on duty. One false move and I’ll take you apart. I could if I wanted to. So watch it. Got that, buddy?”

It always sounds kind of like that to me, anyway. But I speak Cat, not Dog.

I’m an idiot! I’m an idiot! I’m barking because other dogs are barking but I don’t know what we’re barking at! I’m an idiot! (That’s why my barky dog is usually saying, anyway!)
