So, why do I feel the need to torment my neighbors with the loudest dog shriek know to man? One of our dogs' tricks is the ability to wait, although the anticipation associated with "wait" slowly makes Ruffles go crazy. Observe. (It's Video Day here, apparently.)
So whenever I get the urge to test the dogs, which is probably twice a day at least, I will get them all riled up by asking "Outside? Outside?!" as I walk to the door. Then, they will sit and wait. The longer they wait, the louder Ruffles screams. It is awesome. Our neighbors must be disturbed by the unmanly scream of our little buddy, but they never ask us to see if we can keep our banshee from wailing randomly.
Jackson does not make too much noise yet... but I see all night dance parties in his future...
UPDATE - Okay, on watching this online, he barely dances in this clip. This might be one of those "parents see more than is there" things, but I swear he dances whenever he is near that toy.
