Barking Dog Man Ray Graham Recreating His Infamous Growl Is Still Gold

Barking Dog Man Ray Graham Recreating His Infamous Growl Is Still Gold

Ray Graham is the elderly gent who was very invested in describing two angry dogs that were terrorising his neighbourhood to a news channel in Australia - and his barking is still absolute gold:


Ray's spirited portrayal of the pooch earned him recognition around the world in 2010 after he recounted his close call with two aggressive dogs running of their leads in Marsfield, New South Wales.

Nine years after that, he was asked to repeat his renowned bark on national television.


He went on Channel Nine's A Current Affair, the same programme that launched his infamy, to catch us up on what life has been like since his viral video.

Ray said he felt like his life had been 'defined' by the clip and that people still recognise him in the street and ask him for photos. But then the TV host asked if he still could pull off a crazed dog impression.

After a few seconds of thought, Ray absolutely unleashed on the camera. Yep, he's definitely still got it.


Ray's talents clearly had not diminished since he graced our screens all those years ago. Watch the original clip below:


The short clip sparked several Facebook pages dedicated to Ray and even more parodies and remixes. CNN took it a step further and played an audio clip to a pack of dogs who got scared by the noise.

Many feared for Ray's wife, Kerry, when the original clip aired. She just stood there looking with an expression that suggested both 'Jesus, Ray, not this s*** again' and 'good God, am I married to this guy?'


Ray told the team that, thankfully, the dog isn't across the road from him anymore, so he and Kerry can live in peace. Surprisingly, Ray says Kerry is 'cool with it' and doesn't mind him cranking out the odd rabid dog noise here and there.

Kerry, says she actually doesn't blame Ray for his passion, telling A Current Affair during a follow-up interview: "He was just so emotional and it just came out. He is a person who's emotional."

Ray added: "It was something I've never done before - it was casual, informal, off the bat. It was good, wasn't it? I just love the way it was done."


Ray, it wasn't just good, it was certifiably epic and still, to this day, amazes people that you can do it.
