This recording was definitely a special one from last night, very full of love and excitement. Reminds me of when my dad used to come home from business trips and my brother and I would be shrieking with glee!
At 42 seconds there is a muffled growl, and then it goes silent. I remember reading “How to Speak Dog” many years go, and the author said that in the wild, the mother dog will silence her pups by placing her mouth over their muzzles and making a low growl, as if to say ‘ssshhh.” Is that possibly what happens at that 42 second mark? That would be fascinating! … Jo
