The Not Ready For Prime Time Players are still doing a fine job of keeping predators on their side of the fence at night and all I need to do is step out into the barn aisle to find out why. They sound enormous. I mean, really, freaking, enormous. Yes, I know they're big, but deep-throated barks come out of them like sonic booms.

 Yes, that's a full size picnic table. Yes, he's that big now. Yes, he will be only 8 months old next week.

And they sound particularly loud right now. Perhaps it's just an environmental anomaly. The temperature, humidity, and terrain is just right so that sound is amplified and bounces off our very small mountain. We get an echo around here, particularly in the fog, and Judge spends a lot of time barking at the dog on the mountain who mocks him. He lets out a thunder bark, and the Dog In The Dark barks back at him, so naturally, he has to answer the mocking dog. This goes on for hours while Briar and Jury sleep. (Reason #57 for not living in a subdivision.)

Blossom the Pyr had a "fog horn" of a bark issued at steady intervals. She could hear under concret I am in semi rural [5 acres] so she slept inside at night but she was always first bark of the mark when fox was out. Bass drum followed by the rest of he orchestra of pyrs and Maremmas. [6 all up]

One of my friends had an Anatolian. He was at the barn with a mare in foal .... coyote howled close by and he said the Anatolian let out a roar like he has never heard. Mr. Coyote did not answer back and was not heard again. That dog was a really neat girl. Came from rescue in Texas, but evidently had good guardian instincts.

Gideon barks at Noedig(Gideon spelled backward), his reflection in the windows. He's only bothered by Noedig at night.
