The other night I was at Cheryl's in the suburban neighborhood of Ocean Shores. The houses seem quite close to one another compared to where I live in the bush. After midnight I heard a tremendous snoring from the house next door where a cop lives with his wife and three children. Cheryl explained that it was really the neighbor's large bulldog which sleeps outside. It was rather loud. We agreed that it would be very annoying if it was the oversized policeman, but because its the dog, its acceptable.
