Why the Silly Name?
There is no deep, theological meaning behind “The Barking Fox”. The name originated in something that happened a few years ago when we were living in Northern Virginia. One night I heard a strange sound outside our house. When I looked, there was a red fox across the street barking. It sounded something like this:
As far as I can recall, that was the first time I ever heard what the fox says. It occurred to me that “The Barking Fox” would be a great name for something like a pub or a bar (or, oddly enough, a Chinese restaurant in England). It is unlikely that I will ever own a pub, but when I decided to start this blog and was thinking of a name, “The Barking Fox” came readily to mind. It’s not quite the name that gets associated with significant biblical themes, but it does get attention!
