Mad-Dog Face

Dear Frank: I am determined to protect my family from the barking dogs next door. I go to my post on the chair by the window every day and bark back, but my humans get irritated with the barking. How do I protect my family and not make them mad at the same time?
Sincerely, Bailey in Michigan

Dear Bailey: Practice your “mad-dog face”. You know, your scariest, craziest, I’m-about-to-lose-it-like-a-squirrel-who-just-dropped-his-nut face. Then next time the dogs are barking, go to the window, tap it to get their attention, point to your eyes, point to them and mad-dog face them hard. Trust me, dogs who say nothing and have a solid mad-dog face are the scariest.
