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.?
