The Dog That Didn’t Bark In The Night ~ JJ Luna

This very interesting post from Privacy Expert JJ Luna, raises an important question…

Are the things that don’t happen of greater or equal significance that those that do?

JJ Luna is the world’s foremost authority on the subject of privacy. Make sure to Buy his book; “How To Be Invisible.”

The Dog That Didn’t Bark In The Night

In Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story, “Silver Blaze,” the following exchange takes place:

Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”

Sherlock Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”

Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”

Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”

I remembered that story at the breakfast table this morning, when my wife said, “Someone knocked on our door in the night. Just two times. Knock, knock. I listened for a car (we are at the end of a dead-end lane) but when I didn’t hear anything more, I decided not to wake you.”

Me: “The dog didn’t bark?” (We have an electronic dog that barks when a caller approaches the door.)

Wife: “I forgot about the dog. No, he didn’t bark but maybe he’s turned off.”

Me: (Returning from the front door) “The dog barked.”

Wife: “That’s it, then. The two knocks must have been part of a dream.”
