Pups sure do like to howl, don’t they? But just exactly why do they do that? The easiest answer, of course, is to communicate – especially over long distances! (If their howls serve any other nefarious purposes, we swear we certainly aren’t aware of them. Promise.)
And when it comes to communicating with Dad and Mom, they must have realised by now that we aren’t very good at sniffing out messages. So aside from body language, they have to howl – just like what this adorable Dachshund pup is doing!
Who knows what Mom is saying in pup language, but it is clear that this pup appreciates the effort – despite how tired he is, and how he just wants to sleep! Each time Mom howls, he howls back – honestly, it makes for an adorable sight to see and hear. And it makes sense he is responding to each of her howls too – it would be rude not to otherwise!
