You just really need to watch this video in its entirety to see the yodeling in action (or at least make sure you get to my favorite part starting at 0:50):
Athena's yodeling isn't so much a problem in the house as it is when she gets in the car. Whenever Athena thinks we're in the car to take her to one of her favorite places (the park, doggie daycare, flyball practice, etc.) she starts to yodel. It usually starts as a whisper yodel as she stares out the car window in hopes that the car turns down a street that will lead her to one of her favorite places. If the car in fact turns down a road that goes to the park, doggie daycare, or one of her many other favorite locations, Athena's yodeling will increase in loudness until she completely drowns out the stereo and our conversation.
|I love Bean - yodels and all!|
I find myself saying, "shhhhhhhh" "shhhhh" "shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh," during most of the car ride, especially when we get REAL close to the park (or other favorite place) because that's when Athena goes totally ballistic. As you probably saw if you viewed the above video, 0:50 in the video shows the exact instance when Athena has realized that we are in fact driving to the park. She yodels and dances all the way until we stop the car.
|Bean LOVES the park|
Now, there are many other locations that we frequent that just so happen to be along the same driving path as some of Athena's favorite locations. This means that we get to hear yodeling even if we're not planning on stopping at the park. I then feel guilty when Athena stops yodeling because I know that she's pouting that I so rudely didn't take her to a favorite place.
Is your dog a barker, a whiner, a yodeler, or something totally unique?
