Carrying a Tune and Holding a Note

A fun little milestone yesterday for our Barkalot boy, George. It was 125 days ago that he was returned to us by his owner, sadly minus his Barkalot brother, Abe. George is involved in everything that goes on around the house, and his motto for his life has to be, "If I'm not barking about it, it's not important." But even with all the barking, he's a really nice, silly and endearing boy that has his own place in the household and my heart too. I'm so grateful he found his way back to us.
And by the way, we found out purely by accident a few weeks ago, that George can really carry a tune and hold a note. We knew that Max could when he hears a siren, but who knew that George could too?  It must be all that practice he gets barking! 

The weekend at our house is a quiet one. Today my brother is working, and Carl for the first time since March, had to go into the office. Our week ahead looks to be a busy one, as we prepare for the arrival of a new foster boy on Monday evening. He's a 13 year old chocolate boy named Buddy, that I will tell you about when he arrives.

  13. Our angel Miss Ginger was a good singer. She provided music for every meal, and could even say "yum yum." Sometimes, when she thought all of us humans had left the house, she'd conduct a chorus of howling with the other doggies in the house. You could hear it from the driveway!

  14. Love the yip, bark, howl, singing video!
    Snickers talks when it is “food time.”
    I will try and get a video!
    This morning, (she sleeps with us) she came right over to me,
    pushed her nose up near my arm/face and started her “talking bit!”
    Really cute when it doesn’t go on forever!ūüėŹ

    Looking forward to hearing more about “Chocolate Buddy!”

  18. Max and George have lovely singing voices. Who knows, maybe will make the singing duo a trio.

    So glad Buddy has a loving and active family waiting for his arrival.

  19. Welcome to the family, Buddy, and ooooohhhhhh what a beautiful chorus of "music" to start out my week with. Thank you so much for posting a clip, Kim. That's truly music to my ears and always has been. :-) Our Mozart and Fur Elise should have sold albums! *lol* Love, Andrea xoxo
