It Was A Hollywood Howl

Sorry to have to brag about another one of our children - I mean, animals. But, I have to tell y'all about Poncho's perfect howl!

We're so proud.

For some reason he has just found his voice. Yes, I know it sounds like a strange thing to say, but I'm thinking that dogs must be like some humans in that they often don't know what a good voice they have until later in life. Poncho has never been much of a howler before, he's always been kind of quiet.

Well, he has found his howl. He starts slow and low, it builds.... and builds ..... and then suddenly it's practically a yodel. I'm telling you, after hearing him howl I think I need to contact Hollywood. He could do voice-overs for all those wimpy dog howls.

Jack and I were lying in bed, Poncho was serenading us just outside our window, Jack pulled me closer and said, "Honey, listen to our boy, he's the best howler in the Hill Country."

Did I mention it was 2:52 a.m.?

This just proves it doesn't matter what kind of kids you have, they all keep you awake at night.

He's a beauty and he might be a good howler, but not at 2:30 in the morning!!!

Hugs!

And you are so proud of him (love that Jack was saying he is the "best howler" even at 2:52 a.m!)! That is the sweetest!

He is so beautiful...howling or not...and to be proud of him...just makes it all the better...especially when it allows an extra snuggle at night or in this case the a.m. with your lovin hubbin...ain't life good...

I think you SHOULD contact someone about him doing howl-overs...cos I have yet to hear a decent howl broadcast through the airwaves...
