Arrrooooo there good furry fur-less readers,
We would have liked to post a video of the Chief performing her ditties to us very appreciative canine audience but alas, we haven't quite figured out how to do that yet... maybe one of you clever readers could give us a few pointers or two?
We also can't help but agree with Jake and Fergie that 'life without music would be a mistake' - no matter how simple or silly made-up tunes turn out to be. The Chief tells us that when she was a mere pup a little older than our Fur Kids she used to have pet chickens and she would sing to them too! But she tells us we're her most appreciative audience so far (but of course! we canines have larger appreciative capabilities than them bird brains!)
On some special occassions, she'd end her ditties with a howl (for a human she can do quite a good doggy howl) just to get us to howl along! Awwooooo-wooooo-woooo-wooo! Normally, it's the wailings of sirens (the ambulance or police) that would set us lot howlin' ... Awooowowowowoooo! But really, it's not quite as howlin' good fun as awooowooo-ing with the Chief!
She admits as much as she enjoys howlin' along with all of us, she says its not exactly an accepted behaviour - for both humans and canines. Apparently, there's a superstition in our part of the world that a dog's howl is an ominous sign of things to come.
The Chief of course, isn't the superstitious sort ... else she wouldn't add in a howl or two to her ditties. But there's also the rest of the Dog Woods Humans and the neighbours to consider - so to keep the peace on our neck of the woods, we keep our howlin' sessions to the bare minimum. But of course, there's no limit to our Chief's silly made-up dittys!
