So sweet!

I remember when our Golden Retrieve pup had his first big bark.  He scared himself!

I've got an overwhelming urge to scratch my dog's belly now.

If our dog doesn't howl a predetermined tune, hitting the proper notes for the right durations like in those Zelda games, he doesn't eat. On the plus side, the dog's protruding ribs allow it to be played like a xylophone, thus more easily demonstrating the correct tune.

Nothing that a pillow case, a piece of rope, a cinder block and a river won't solve.

/Just kidding.  That was cute as hell.  The one little dog could barely bark much less howl.  But he tried!

My dog used to sing along with me. Howling notes while I practiced bass. It was amazing. He would actually hit the notes to match what I was playing (if I played really slow). I'm sure it would have gone viral if it were not back in 1993.

Teaching them to shut up is the hard part.

I used to live in an apartment and my not-right-in-the-head neighbors got a beagle pup.  Awful cute, but loud.  And howled alot.

I was leaving my place one day and the mom stopped me to apologize for the dog.  I just shrugged and said, "Well, there are probably tricks you can try.  But really, what can you do?  It's part of their breed."

She was amazed at this apparently arcane knowledge of mine.  "How do you know stuff like that?!"

*blinked*

Not long after that she stopped me again.

"We took him to the vet and he has to take some pills.  But he won't take them!  You're so good with dogs, do you think you can help?"

"Hold on," I said, and went to my apartment for a Kraft single.  I went over to her place, wrapped the pill in cheese, and he ate it.

"Oh my god!  How did you know that would work?"

*blinked*

Suffice it to say, some people shouldn't own dogs.

Hell, I just open my dogs mouth and place it on the back of his tongue, lightly hold his mouth closed for a moment and I'm done...

I don't tend to give my dogs people food, especially not to train them.

Yeah, my dogs were easy that way too.  Maybe I was going for some razzle dazzle ;-)

Our retriever was so well behaved he probably would have let us do anything to him.  He was an amazing animal.

I have to use crunchy peanut butter.
Anything else, she 'll just roll around in her mouth till *ppt* she spits out a perfectly clean pill.
Trying to get her to swallow a pill placed on her tongue by holding her mouth shut gets so frustrating I want to throw her across the room, so I don't try that anymore.

My best friend's dog will take the pill from you fine, but you *HAVE* to let her play with it for about 2 minutes...never longer, really.  She'll pffft it out, then skittle it around the floor, never getting it under anything or losing it.  If you just let her do that, she then happily scoops it off the floor and gulps it down.

/cheese, peanut butter, butter, nothing else worked
//gave up in frustration one day and tossed the now wet pill on the floor in disgust
///voila!

You didn't know that before getting the beagle?

We used to raise basset hounds. The mom would get all of her pus going at once.

/surprised I don't have diabeetus form it.

She's my third beagle.  To be fair, she only howls when she is trying to communicate.  Thing is, she's always trying to tell me something.  "I want my dinner!"  "I want the cat's dinner!" "I want cat litter!"  "I want to go outside and sniff for rabbits!" "I want breakfast!" "I love you!" "I want dinner!"

Why do dogs howl? What's the point? It's funny as hell.
 
2013-11-20 06:15:46 PM  
My border collie/brown lab mix isn't really vocal, except when you mention car-rides. Then he does this thing where he goes from a yawn to a kinda-sorta howl.
 
2013-11-20 07:12:51 PM  
Well, that video sent my biatch into a fury of howls.

In addition to those my Beagle had "I want your dinner." "I want whatever you just touched in the kitchen" "OMG so happy to see you after being out all day" "OMG so happy to see you after you went into the bathroom for 45 seconds"

We've tried to teach our dog how to howl.

He won't.  He wants to lick us when we try.

Dogs are just highly selected for wolves (shocker).  The reason they don't eat our faces as we sleep is because they are permanently mentally fixed in adolescence.

I went to the shelter and picked the one dog that wasnt barking or howling and didn't look sick. As a bonus, someone had already trained him. I laugh to myself when we walk by other houses at midnight and the designer dogs inside go nuts.

He looked at me while I was playing this video with a concerned look but since it wasn't a squirrel, he laid his head back down.

Well, there has to be a good reason, because as we all know, dogs are the paragon of logic and deliberation.

My next older brother and I raised standard beagles as rabbit dogs.  They're much too clever for their own good on many occasions.
