(Thanks, Joe Sabia!)
I think I found my new ring tone.
OK, this works for me as a unicorn chaser. Concentrate on the cute, loud doggie, and don’t think about the two posts immediately below.
We live by a firehouse, and our dog Moby does sort of the same thing. We can get Moby to do it on demand if we howl at him first. We’d get it on video if he wasn’t afraid of cameras. Apparently the theme song to Law & Order has the same affect on some dogs (not Moby), look it up on youtube.
Patches howls at the telephone. If you ask him to use his inside voice he will do a soft groan instead. Such a good dog.
Playing that woke up my snoozing puppy–and I was wearing headphones.
I now have this link in my Household bookmarks folder, captioned “Wake The Cats!”
I love the “OK, how’d I do?” look at the end.
And the little doggie squeak too!
Great, now it set off the dogs next door. Howls Across America!
Who needs a cassette tape filled with Halloween sounds?
Answer: people in the 1990s, who do not own this dog.
Back in the old days, the local firehouse would blow their horn every 3 hours from 9am to 9pm. My old dog would howl like this every single time, 5 times a day, every day.
