    You may not know his name, but you'll almost certainly know his bark.

    Ray Graham is a quiet and unassuming grandfather. He is married to his wife of four decades Kerry and still lives in the same home they bought more than 24 years ago.

    But in April 2010, Mr Graham became an international sensation, after a TV interview with A Current Affair about the rabid dogs 'terrorising' their local area.

    That interview has been watched tens of millions of times online and become part of Australia's digital age folklore.

    The 66-year-old has spoken to Daily Mail Australia about life as the 'barking dog man' and says even this many years on he is regularly stopped for a selfie.

    'I get noticed in the street, not as much now, but it still happens,' he said.

    'Just the other week I was out shopping with Kerry and these two guys started after us and we thought they were going to mug us but all they wanted was just a photo! 

    'They always want to take a photo and sometimes I sort of bark at them - they really love that.

    'It's been all positive, there's been no downside, but it has definitely changed my life.'

    The significance of the interview on Mr Graham's life has stretched far beyond being stopped by strangers when he is out shopping.
