Humorous incident of the dog in the daytime

Some of the really geeky readers might know the book I’m clumsily referencing with that title, but this is really just something humorous that just happened…

-Guy came to the door while I was working in the shop, selling stuff. I hate door to door salesmen, unless they look like Willy Loman. This guy looked like a 22 year old punk.

-It transpires (as he shouts to make himself understood over my blasting opera music) that he is selling home security systems.

-I ask why he is standing so far away from the front door of the house.

-He answers “I am terrified of your dog” (Pele is growling and barking like a maniac, as usual).

-I laugh and walk back into the shop.
