Louie, Louie, Louie,
Everyday with you brings something new.
One day it was counter climbing
Another day fence jumping
And even though you've never seen or heard a cow
Now you've discovered how to Moo

(poem by Gary)

Yesterday afternoon I was on my computer with Katie curled up under my feet as usual when I suddenly heard a very loud and strange noise come from the kitchen. It was Louie who had been napping in there. He made a noise that sounded like a cow mooing. It was absolutely hilarious...that is after I assured myself that he was ok. I have never heard a sound like that come from a dog. I moo'd back at him trying to get him to do it again. But no, it was a single, solitary moo not to be repeated.

Until... 2:30 a.m.... another BIG moo comes from Louie in his crate at the foot of the bed. Just one nice loud moo and he was right back to sleep. Of course it took Gary and I about an hour to fall back asleep after that extremely loud noise. It was worth losing a bit of sleep though to hear that strange and actually quite cool sound again.

That IS hilarious! Have you seen -The Story of the Weeping Camel-? When we watched it about five years ago, our beagle bleated like a camel for the next day or two. It was fabulous.
