.ג Every Dog has his... Time

מִשְׁמָרָה רִאשׁוֹנָה חֲמוֹר נוֹעֵר, שְׁנִיָּה כְּלָבִים צוֹעֲקִים, שְׁלִישִׁית, תִּינוֹק יוֹנֵק מִשְּׁדֵי אִמּוֹ, וְאִשָּׁה מְסַפֶּרֶת עִם בַּעֲלָהּ... חָשֵׁיב סוֹף מִשְׁמָרָה רִאשׁוֹנָה, וּתְחִלַּת מִשְׁמָרָה אַחֲרוֹנָה, וְאֶמְצָעִית דְּאֶמְצָעִיתָא.

It comes out, according to this approach that the time for dogs to bark (or scream) is exactly at חצות as that would be the the middle of the middle משמרה. Perhaps this lends another interpretation to the פסוק of וּלְכֹל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא יֶחֱרַץ־כֶּלֶב לְשֹׁנוֹ - שמות י"א:י"ז. Perhaps this was just exactly the time that the dogs made lots of noise and nevertheless, everything was peaceful in the Jews' neighbourhood.
