Our Cocker Spaniel, Lizzie, has mental problems. Is there an asylum for dogs we can send her to? Last night she woke us up barking. First Dorothy got up, opened the door, then nothing but silence. Halfway back to bed the barking resumed. Back to the door, open it, silence. Back to bed, barking. I finally took a flashlight outside and discovered a cat she had cornered. The cat ran away and Lizzie finally came in. She does these things purposely just to annoy me.
