Canine Unconscious

I wish I knew what it was my dog barks at when he dreams.

In his awake life, he’s not a barker.

Doesn’t bark at people. Doesn’t bark at dogs or other animals. Doesn’t bark at loud noises – except the metallic clank of the ironing board unfolding.  Even then, it’s only a single, emphatic “WOOF”.  For the most part, he rarely makes a peep.

So why is it almost every time he falls sleep he barks repetitively?

What is he experiencing that moves him to vocalize?

If I released a genie from a golden lamp and the genie gave me three wishes I would use one of the wishes to ask my dog what he’s dreaming of.

That is how badly I’d like to know.
