Tales of a Secret Howl

It's Big Pupi again:

My folks have had me for just about 5 years now, and in that time my mom has never ever heard me howl. She didn't believe dad when he told her that I burst into squealing song every time she takes Stanislaw out and leaves me home. The thing is, I will never howl as long as I know someone is home, and so the only times dad has ever heard me sing my secret melodies is when he's still in bed snoozeling and I can't see that he's home.

The requirements for a Secret Howl are rarely met, but on this particular early morning mom had to take Stan out for a second morning walk (he was having issues finding his poobles) and dad was still in bed. Convinced that I was alone, and without realizing that I was being filmed, I flexed the golden pipes and howled like a beast of frightening proportions.

My singing stuffy Elf, (whose proper name is Saint Elf de Apartment Next to Kitty Smell), gets me really revved up for a good howl. All that manly thrashing was caught on tape. The howling however... you can't see me do it, and so I'm letting you know now it wasn't me. There's no way that my testosterone-fueled voice can reach octaves that high. No way. Impossible. I think I've been framed.

My howl always has, and always will be, my secret howl.

Sorry mom. Better luck next time.

oh Big Pupi!!
That really does be high pitched and I didn't see any other dog around. Very funny!

We see a career as an opera singer in your future Big Pupi. You can really hit those high notes! We also like your technique of roaching while you thrash that stuffie. Good job.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Awesome Big Pupi! Don't be shy about howling it to the world! You have a fine Howl my friend!
Nelly and I freely howl every morning when Mum takes us to the Lakes in her car. She says she's gonna try and record that too.

PeeEss: Mum also says she'd probably kill Saint Elf de Apartment next to Kitty Smell ...

I must admit that I howl when my girl takes Fig on a walk a leaves me behind. But I don't hide it. In fact, I did it right to Leah's face:

Pee Es: my girl LOVES it that you thrash around on your stuffy to make it sing.... She's still laughing.

THAT is most excellent!

I also have a sekhret howl!

I use it when I furget Mom is out in the kitchen if the phones ring and she doesn't answer them -

One of these days she thinks she'll snag me -

We shall hear about that!

Gosh! When Momma heard that she totally flashed back to the fifties and was getting ready to duck and cover.

I am astounded by your vocal range. I am also now unable to get that pesky singing elf music out of my head.

That sure was good howling, but maybe, just maybe, it had a slight resemblance to a temper tantrum

Dog Foster Mom said...

Were you singing along? I'm glad your dad caught you on video - that was very fun to watch. And now I get to have Jingle Bells running through my head all day. It's amazing that toy has survived so long without one of your parents destroying it! :-)

Nothing personal, Big Pupi, but my howl is A LOT louder and more melodious than yours and I should know beclaws my mom covers her ears when I start singing! I love to howl and sing when I'm swimming beclaws I love doing the doggy paddle....heehee!
I am your newest follower and I hope you will visit my blog sometime!

♥MONA + MOMMY TOO♥ said...

GOODNESS ME!! Somebody sure was howling. I had to run for cover.

Sorry we haven't been around in a while, it's the Mommy's fault. Good help is hard to come by sometimes


PS...WOW Big Pupi, loved your roaching.

Got to be sneaky about that howling, Pupi. Our Katya never does it when she knows anyone's around to hear -- I've only heard it because one time I was home sick after everyone else had left for work, and she forgot I was upstairs. Other than that, though -- never. Although occasionally, when she's having a particularly vivid dream, she'll let out a long lonesome keen...
