It was bad enough when my little black dog would get under the bed and bark in whispers when she heard something scary.
The other day I had her out for a walk and a group of people approached us. They must have frightened her because she began to whisper bark at them as we walked.
Strangest dog I’ve ever owned, when it comes to barking. She’s also probably the best dog when it comes to trying to please.
She can bark and has done so, but when truly afraid, she whispers.
