My dogs are barking

So today, I run for 4.5 miles and it hurts my feet so bad since I am not really a runner but feel bad after 2 weeks skipping the gym.
Anyway, I remember the quote my housemate said last time when we jogged together: “When your feet are hurt, you say My dogs are barking”. I find it amusing but too lazy to verify its source until now, it turns out that there is a brand of shoe called “Hush Puppy” ( and it’s named that as a reference to the expression “My dogs are barking”. In the case of the shoe, Hush Puppies are supposedly so comfortable they can quiet your puppies – that is, stop your feet from hurting.
