Pixel’s Pitiful Attempts at a Howl

The other day I heard sirens coming in the distance.  I quickly grabbed my camera and got it ready to record Bailey and his howling, just because I think it’s funny.  I was wondering if this would be the time that Pixel finally joins in as up till now she has only barked and given him weird looks when he howls at things.  Here is what happened… you have to listen carefully for Pixel because Bailey tends to drown her out a bit.

Yeah, not a lot of howling going on from Pixel but she is trying!  You can tell that she is finally catching on that she is supposed to be doing something, but she doesn’t quite know what.  Instead of a howl, all you get is a sort of strangled cry that wants to be a howl but isn’t.

One day she’ll get there and I’ll be sure to have the camera handy.

    That was funny. Bailey kept on looking at her as if she was thinking, “What’s wrong with you? Why aren’t you saying something?”

  4. Awww…that sort of reminds me of the Tweeb when she loses her voice–not that you’d want to hear it…she makes the same sort of strangled noise.

    • She’s going to howl anytime now I think. Bailey didn’t for the first few years and now there’s no stopping him when he hears a siren. They are adorable indeed! I think I’ll keep them! :)

  6. LOL poor thing :) It’s a long learning process, I guess!

    On a totally different topic, I just re-read your ‘Our story’ section, and realised you got married the day before the fireworks explosion in Enschede. I was going to make bad jokes like “I’m sure you had a blast” or “You guys sure made a spark” referring to your wedding and honeymoon night… but… erm… maybe I shouldn’t.
