Synopsis
The farmer dreams of dogs. He is dreaming of something else, then the dogs encroach, savaging his dream, until there is nothing but dogs. In this dream the dogs are barking. A barking so lifelike he isn't sure if he's awake or asleep now, or between the two. He wakes. He lies, listening. The window is ajar and he can hear them, the dogs, clamouring below in the compound. His dogs. He gets out of bed and goes to the window. Opening the curtain, he looks out. There is no moon and he can make out little in the yard other than the black shapes of the outbuildings. He cannot see the two dogs, but he can hear their commotion: the tug of chains, paws scuffing at cement, the hollering. A fox has set them off, he thinks. Or another dog, its own cries from across the moor provoking a response. But as he stands, naked, and listens, he knows his dogs' voices contain an outrage too great for such familiar intrusions. Burglars? Poachers? Badger baiters? His wife asks what's wrong, and he understands that she senses it too: the quality of the barking. The farmer tells her he is going down.
