Dog Cuteness

We recently discovered an interesting side effect of living in the bush -- your pets also have limited social experiences with their own kind.  This can lead to some entertaining developments.

Ripley, our akita/malamute -- breeds that already have very non-dog-like vocalizations, has learned to "howl" from the local coyotes and wolves rather than other dogs.  It's so cute because she sounds even more like a Wookie when she tries to imitate them.  Even though she tries for the ar-ar-aarooo, it ends up orf-orf-ooorarawooo.  Our neighbor's dogs just look at her funny when she talks to them in her coy-wolf-wookie way :D
