Riddle me this: When is a person not a person? Or, more accurately, when is a person not a human being?

Recently, a friend and I were swapping stories of teen antics, and he recalled when his best friend snuck out of the house and took the family German shepherd in the car with him for fear of it barking and alerting his parents. The scheme worked – almost; while the dog didn’t wake up the parents, it devoured the interior of the getaway car.

These days, I have a different sort of barking dog issue to worry about. My neighbors’ pup yaps incessantly in their yard whenever anyone is outside. The high-pitched, piercing bark has awakened me on countless mornings, and makes it nearly impossible to lounge peacefully in my backyard.
