Can they chew gum and walk at the same time?   Controversies, Catastrophes and Teaky Moments (Enter at your own risk)

I recently read that some dogs simply can't bark and lie down at the same time.  That might relate to the oft trained mat work highly recommended for dogs that bark at the knock on the door.

I have very much noticed this with Agent and Gnash. The mere sight of my deaf white kitty triggers them. They have to stand to bark. If I down them, silence. Teaky can sit and bark. Tybor can lay down and bark. Not so sure about the others. I will start observing. 

How about your dogs?

Mine jump up and go into a protective stance.  Tail up, bark bark bark, very low and menacing.  I think the whole scenario is genetic.

Mine just proved us wrong. They were sleeping, heard a noise and barked a warning without ever getting up. Both of them!
