Barking up the Wrong Tree 

Editor:

I want to thank Kimberly Wear for her article ("Something to Crow About," Dec. 21). It was nice to read about Art Rush and his animals and how he "feeds them, pets them, cleans out their coop, lays out hay and gives the ducks a garden hose shower before refilling the blue kiddie pool they use for splashing about." He's my kind of person. Sorry to read about the complaining neighbor.

We have had chickens, roosters and parrots in our neighborhood and we enjoy their sounds. And I appreciated Rod Ludlow's wording: "Finally, it's often a case of properly educating people that chickens, when cared for properly, are no more of a nuisance than someone with dogs in their backyard."

Believe me, our neighborhood chickens could not compete with our neighborhood dogs. They bark, beginning at 4 a.m. and go all day. I once yelled at a neighbor's dog to stop barking. The dog looked at me and said: "Bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark."
