did something today she has never before done in the 5 years I've known
her. She howled! Only for about a second, but it was a true "awhoo!"
Then she looked a little embarrassed and when I tried to get her to try
again Dottie started barking and then Pie decided barking is more
This came about because the cocker spaniels set up next to us at agility started up howling. They did the same thing yesterday and Pie ignored them. When they howled today Pie joined in for a second. Maybe it struck a chord with her. It really surprised me and I was glad I was there to witness it. Silly Pie!
I live in Ventura County California. The three dogs referred to are Fancy, 11 year old Tibetan Terrier, Pie, 8 year old Belgian Malinois and Dottie, 5 year old Belgian Malinois. Muffin a 13 year old poodle mix makes four but he is more like a cat so I don't count him. Bloom and Blossom are no longer alive, but are still with me in spirit. All are from local animal shelters. We amuse ourselves by competing in agility and obedience competitions.
