Well Axel can add mimic to his resume. He was outsids with my beagle and husky playing around when I heard him barking or should I say howling. Yep he sounds like a very big beagle. If anyone knows beagles then they know how vocal they can be. Its the oddest and funniest sound I have ever heard. I didnt know that dobes howled. My last one had a  big bark not a big howl lol.

Tess, Tory howled.  the first time we heard it we were all in the car and she spotted some deer.  oh my goodness, that will get your attention.  We live on about 75 acres, most of which is woods.  We always figured she learned to howl from the coyotes.  You haven't lived until the dobe at the foot of your bed starts howling back to the coyotes in the middle of the night, when you're sound asleep.  Think Sylvester the cat hanging from the ceiling. lol  Tony is also very vocal, mostly whine, grunts groans and huffs.  Lots of huffs when I'm on the computer.                                                                Dave used to sing with them in the car, that kinda arrrr,arrrr,arrr high pitched whiney thing they do when the are realllly excited. very loud, but fun.

Our first dobermann boy, Dino, howled but the funniest thing was that you could make him howl if you made a wow wow sound over and over he would join in, his little nose rose in the air and off he would go howling for Scotland.   It was so funny.   He was the funniest little guy, such a baby all his life, he just never outgrew the puppy stage.   Happy happy memories :)

My three do what my Mom calls the "Hallaluja chorus" - howling together with Bitsy coming in on soprano.  The really funny thing is when they're outside and the two Dobermans down the street start in as well.  We should rename our half mile, dead end street - when I have a foster there are 7 Dobermans in four homes.

Ah....fond memories!  Libby could really howl. She was only half Dobe, but I'm not sure how much Dalmatians howl. LOL!

I'd tell my dogs....SING!  And all three of them would do the Hallelujah chorus as well. Libby would tip her head back and just belt it out in a long howl. Dillon was part coyote, so he would do the coyote shriek WAY up high - Ki-Yi-Yi.... And Gabe? Well, he tried.  A low boo-woo from him.   :-)

I loved it. People would call me, and ask to have them sing, because they needed cheering up. It was a racket, but really funny!

We live about a mile from the firestation so everytime one of those trucks leave both Boss and Daisy go crazy howling, its the funniest noise to hear from those two!

LOL!  These stories are great!

A few days ago I was signing along to Glee (yeah, I'm a dork) and Harley started whining, then howling, right along with me.  That's how bad my singing is.

Aw, c'mon..... Maybe Harley was singing harmony!
