This is Dastan. He is nine years old. He says, “I love to bark because sometimes I hear it echo. I can hear other dogs barking in the distance. We talk to each other. We are like, ‘A big truck is coming to my house. It might come to your house next.’ I am serious.”
I love this. I have witnessed hearing dogs talk with each other in the neighborhood, but it is incredible to hear Dastan talk about it. I love the concept of a secret life and communication between dogs in a neighborhood that most people don’t even know exists. If you stop and listen, you can hear it happening.
