Bernard, who was noted for his gracious manners, was awakened one morning at four forty-four a.m. by his ringing telephone.
"Your dog's barking, and it's keeping me awake," said an angry voice.
Bernard thanked the caller and politely asked his name and number before hanging up.
The next morning at precisely four forty-four a.m., Bernard called his neighbor back.
"Good morning, Mr. Williams. I just called to say that I don't *have* a dog."
