what is it about dogs and the phone? not when it rings...once it's at your ear. apparently a phone to the ear is the international sign for bark, and bark loudly. because we work with 14 dogs, we face this problem constantly. essentially the office belongs to the dogs while we are stuck running for the closet as soon as we answer the phone. we’re thinking of moving our computers in there…of course then that’s where the dogs will have to be. anyone else face this problem?
