I appreciate that it’s a much-loved standby, like the ridiculous thing where they estimate time of death by the time a watch stopped, but it always throws me out of a murder mystery when the detective works out the identity of a killer because a dog doesn’t bark. The rationale here, I guess, is that dogs don’t bark at people they know or love. 

My question is: have the people who write these stories ever, ever owned a dog?
