  • Joyce A. Wrote, “My dog (a lab) is quite a talker as it is, but during the full moon, he barks almost constantly, running through the house–and I rarely can figure out what he hears to bark at.”
  • Darlene wrote, “My dog barked and barked during the last full moon – unusual for him – a rottweiler/shar pei mix”.
