In the UK, a telephone subscriber is signalled by sending 90 volts across one side of the two-wire circuit and ground. When the phone is answered, it switches to the two-wire circuit for conversation. This method allows two parties on the same line to be signalled without disturbing each other.

An elderly man called British Telecom to say that his telephone nearly always failed to ring when his friends called. On the few occasions when it did ring, his dog always barked first. A technician dispatched to the premises climbed a nearby pole, connected his test set, and dialled the house. The phone didn't ring.

On investigation, it was found that the dog was tied to the telephone system's ground post via an iron chain and collar, and was receiving 90 volts of signalling current. After several jolts, the dog urinated on the ground and barked. The wet ground then conducted and the phone rang.
