Wednesday Smile: Howling Puppies Edition

So if you should ever happen across me when there are fire trucks passing by you get to hear my rendition of howling. It's rather adorable. I put my head way back, form my mouth into a perfect "o" and howl away. At first the human thought I was doing it because I was scared. After careful observation, he didn't detect any body language I offer up when I'm scared. It looks as if something comes over me and I just simply must howl. He's not sure I have a choice: perhaps it's something that is encoded in my genes that gets triggered deep within my brain when I hear something the pitch of a fire truck.

Regardless, we stop and make a spectacle of ourselves every time there is a fire truck. The human starts howling and makes a big deal out of me howling. I suspect he's trying to teach me to howl. So far I'm not complying. Until I do, here are a few other puppies who have figured this one out. Enjoy!

Life In A Day

A couple of people shared with me about the Life In A Day experiment that was happening on July 24. The idea is to create a user generated film shot in a single day. People all over the world had 24 hours to record a glimpse of their life. Some of that footage will be used to make a documentary produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald.

Here is my contribution to the experiment:

What People are Saying

Here is a quote about me!

I’m crazy about Maggie! She was a great part of my therapy. I really think she could intuit when I was feeling good and when I needed a little extra love and attention. I think animals, and dogs in particular, are an important part of making us feel happy because they’re affection is unconditional, and they teach us how to feel responsible for ourselves through caring for them. And it’s pretty hard not to smile when Maggie’s romping around burying her imaginary bones and trying to get you to pet her.

New Office

So I've spent most of my weekend thus far being shuttled back and forth to Cambridge as the new office is being prepared. I'm finally getting to relax today as everything was completed yesterday. Here I am, resting in the new space. If you want to see more check out this link.
